When I joined SparkPeople in August of 2010, I had a guilty secret: I had signed up simply to lose weight for my wedding. I used the guise of 'getting healthy' to look good in my wedding dress. I was tracking my food and doing at least 30 minutes of concerted exercise per day so I could look at my future photos with pride. I didn't think there was anything inherently wrong with my lifestyle, health-wise; that I wouldn't gain anything from using this website as a 'tool'. Now, after the ...

I didn't think there was anything inherently wrong with my lifestyle, health-wise; that I wouldn't gain anything from using this website as a 'tool'. Now, after the wedding and after the holidays, I'm seeing just how valuable SparkPeople has been in my life since I found it.

My Goals:
My goal is to always be mindful of the healthier choice, always make time for yoga in my day, and always work towards being the best person I can be.

My Program:
I find yoga a sometimes challenging, sometimes gentle, always rewarding practice. I think by finding at least ten minutes a day for the mat, I'm making myself and my health better.

Personal Information:
I was married in August, 2011 to my brilliant, creative, imaginative best friend. We have lived in China for the past three and a half years teaching English and studying Mandarin Chinese. Our cat, Honeybunny, is indeed Chinese.

Thanks so much for commenting on my vlog (: I will have to do some researching on the vids you mentioned. Yogi tea is delish- I don't even feel tempted to "add in" other stuff to it. Ahh fabulous. Keep up the awesome work girl!!

Thanks for the comment on my blog! I at times worry about my husband's health too. He is trim and muscular but raised on a high fat, southern diet and heart problems run in his family. However as of late he has been doing uncharacteristic things.... like running with me (not just lifting weights) and taking supplements like vitamins and fish oil. It is so exciting to think that our hard work on our health might inspire our husbands or other people we love to take better care of themselves, isn't it? Tell your hubby we don't bite and that sparkers are the coolest! haha! Thanks again!
