Hello! I am a teacher in suburban St. Louis--a reading specialist, more specifically. I'm in my 11th year of teaching, and I'm finally tackling the weight I've put on since I started my career. There's the stress of the job that is enough to pack on pounds, but then there's the resulting lack of energy that leads to making poor food choices and not exercising. However, thanks in part to SparkPeople, things ARE getting better!!!

Member Since: 1/3/2009

SparkPoints: 82,434

Fitness Minutes: 32,326

My Goals:
Drop the 70 pounds or so that I have gained since I started teaching (most of which came in the last couple of years).

My Program:
~ Tracking my food intake as diligently as possible. Even when I'm not behaving. ;)

~ Tracking my exercise, which includes walking in my neighborhood, DVDs, strength training, yoga, and stretching routines. I am currently using lots of Leslie Sansone videos for cardio, Jillian Michaels for strength and Katherine Coffee and Tamilee Webb for stretching routines.

~ Wearing a pedometer to track my steps. I really try to shoot for 10000 steps, but my daily SP goal is a more realistic 7500.

Personal Information:
I live in the St. Louis, MO, area with my husband Matt and our cute dogs Mollie and Sandy.

Other Information:

I love sports (Royals, Chiefs, Cardinals, Blues, Rams, Mizzou Tigers, Missouri State Bears), politics, and reading books that help my personal growth without being too New Age-y.

“If we think our job here on earth is to fix ourselves, we will keep looking for the broken places.
If we believe our job is to be kind, we will keep lavishing love on ourselves.”

“How would your life be different if…You didn’t allow yourself to be defined by your past?
Let today be the day…You stop letting your history interfere with your destiny, and awaken to the opportunity to release your greatest self.”

"Defeat may test you; it need not stop you. If at first you don't succeed, try another way.
For every obstacle there is a solution. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
The greatest mistake is giving up."

"Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark.
In the hopeless swamps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all,
do not let the hero in your soul perish and leave only frustration for the life you deserved, but never have been able to reach.
The world you desire can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours."
-Ayn Rand
