The Lark's Nest

I teach English as a Second Language at Southern Utah University. I also enjoy gardening, music, reading, writing, and walking my dog. I am amazed at what a difference exercise has made for me. It has really helped me trim up, and kept me from getting depressed. My favorite exercises are walking/running and Callenetics. I like Callentics because it is almost like relaxing into fitness, and it is very gentle. As I have been seriously working on my cardio-exercise and sleeping better, my energy ...
I teach English as a Second Language at Southern Utah University. I also enjoy gardening, music, reading, writing, and walking my dog. I am amazed at what a difference exercise has made for me. It has really helped me trim up, and kept me from getting depressed. My favorite exercises are walking/running and Callenetics. I like Callentics because it is almost like relaxing into fitness, and it is very gentle. As I have been seriously working on my cardio-exercise and sleeping better, my energy and mood levels have been rising. My dog, Shadow, is a great walking partner, and is really into this walk run thing, which is a great motivator for me. I have really been enjoying using the SparkPeople website.

Thank you for letting me know more about your FitBit.. emoticon Glad it helps you keep track.. I'm just finally figuring out the iphone application for Sparkpeople and am wondering if the Fitbit does the same thing.

Success is a Choice
-Unknown
"Today I will make many choices, and each will have a consequence. Today I can choose to tell myself that I am worth the effort, or I can tell myself doesn't matter, I'll do it tomorrow. Today I can choose to journal, or I can choose not to. Today I can choose to drink my water, or I can choose to be
dehydrated. Today I can choose to stay in my points range, or I can choose to hinder my goals. Today I can choose to be more active, or I can choose to take the easy way. Today I can choose to be motivated, or I can choose to tell myself "I can't." Today I can choose success. IT IS MY CHOICE."

Glad to see you back!! I am doing well and am still here in Cedar :) I worked quite a bit last year so I wasn't around for about 9 months. I'm off now until the Spring, but am looking for a local job so I don't have to go back up to Alaska. If you ever want a walking buddy, let me know!
