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.
