Fiercebalance!

2004 was The Year of Movement. I started with yoga, and went back to swimming. In 2011 I added twice weekly Pilates sessions to my routine. In the past five years I have continued with exercising, and truly enjoy it! I started tracking my food when I signed up for Spark People in Dec of 07. As of Feb 2012 I have lost 131 pounds. This year my goal is to lose 40 pounds. I am more active now than I've been for years.

My Goals:
I am trying to get 8 hours of sleep-which is continues to be strangely challenging!



My Program:
I use the Fitness tracking page and weigh or measure and log all my food on the Nutrtion tracker. I practice yoga once a week, Pilates twice a week, and swim at least four times a week.

Personal Information:
I was born in Wisconsin. I have lived in SF, CA for the past 16 years. I am 50 years old, and work as a sign language interpreter, coordinator and educator. I travel nationally to teach continuing education courses to interpreters. I recently graduated with my MA in Art Therapy Psychology and am earning my intern hours so I can sit for the license exams. I am "sparking" with my partner of 13 years. We love traveling to National Parks.

Other Information:
I often get myself out to door and to the gym by remembering how good I feel during and after I exercise. (This requires really 'feeling into' my body after working out, and making mental notes about the sensations and emotions I am having.) I try to remind myself about the paradox in exercising--that if I'm tired, I'll actually have MORE energy if i workout. If I am particularly not interested in going, I tell myself to just go to the gym, and if once I get there I still don't feel up for it, I don't have to go in. I've never turned around!

Thanks for the encouragement! Mono Lake is officially the new 'carrot'. Walk on.

Loved the Mono Lake pic (and much else on your truly inspiring page) - this has been on my 'bucket list' for years! You've inspired me to add this trip to my "rewards list" instead!
