Shared Fitness Tracker
Hello! I am a teacher-turned-stay-at-home-mom in suburban St. Louis. My son William was born in April 2016; it only took about 4 months to lose the baby weight. However, now I need to focus on the weight I gained while I was teaching. Lots of stress and a hectic workload contributed to some poor choices and many extra pounds. Now, I'm ready to make some positive changes!
Drop the 70 pounds or so that I have gained since I started teaching (most of which came in the last couple of years).
~ Tracking my food intake as diligently as possible. Even when I'm not behaving. ;)
~ Tracking my exercise, which includes walking in my neighborhood with my husband, son and dog; using our indoor rowing machine, biking when the weather is decent, using workout DVDs, and doing strength training, yoga, and stretching routines.
~ Wearing my Spark People Activity Tracker. I really try to shoot for 10000 steps, but my daily SP goal is a more realistic 7500.
I live in the St. Louis, MO, area with my husband Matt, our son Will, and our dog, Sandy.
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 it’s important to you and you want to do it ‘eventually’, just do it and correct your course along the way."
