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: 86,622

Fitness Minutes: 35,207

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 you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to work on you.
If you go to work on your plan, your plan will go to work on you.
Whatever good things we build end up building us."

"Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.
Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements.
You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward.
Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
-- Ralph Marston

"There are admirable potentialities in every human being.
Believe in your strength and your truth.
Learn to repeat endlessly to yourself, 'It all depends on me.'"

“Although time seems to fly, it never travels faster than one day at a time.
Each day is a new opportunity to live your life to the fullest.
In each waking day, you will find scores of blessings and opportunities for positive change.
Do not let your TODAY be stolen by the unchangeable past or the indefinite future! Today is a new day!”
-Steve Maraboli
