I am tired of feeling like "the fat teacher" and am working to be healthy and fit.

I've learned a lot in recent years about being content, even HAPPY, with my "flaws" -- my invisible eyelashes that you can't see without mascara, my freckles, my size 11 feet - they're all a part of what makes me uniquely, beautifully, ME. Even ...

I've learned a lot in recent years about being content, even HAPPY, with my "flaws" -- my invisible eyelashes that you can't see without mascara, my freckles, my size 11 feet - they're all a part of what makes me uniquely, beautifully, ME. Even my personality quirks, compliments of ADHD, make me the unique person that my family and friends love, and my students admire and adore.

SparkPoints: 51,085

Fitness Minutes: 25,171

My Goals:
I need to lose pounds, but I am more interested in size, tone, and body fat.

I will be a ten with less than 30% body fat, or a "healthy" BMI according to the SparkPeople calculator.


My Program:
This is what I'm striving for:

1. water water water!
all day long

2. strength training 3X/wk

3. Yoga/flexibility activities 2X/week

4. DAILY walks with my pup, regardless of the weather.


Personal Information:
Fun: I love to read, listen to music, sing, cook interesting new meals, spend time with my family, travel on day trips, and take my dog swimming.

Life: I love my life in Wyoming! My only regret is that I didn't come here years ago.

Family: Just me and my Mendo, plus our newly-adopted kitten named Jax. We also live close to my mom, stepdad, aunt, uncle, and cousins, and I'm very happy about that too. We foster animals for the City Shelter. So far just mama/kitten combos, but hoping for puppies one of these times. I also play quasi-step-mom to my boyfriend's 6-y-o son, and I absolutely love that role.

Faith: I am fairly new to being a Christian, and am enjoying the peace that God has brought me. Even in my trials, I feel like everything is going to be okay in the end. Jeremiah 29:11

Career: I work with SpEd teachers and staff, coordinating the Special Education program for several schools in my district.

Other Information:
I would like to help the entire SparkPeople community learn the difference between LOOSE and LOSE.

LOOSE means NOT TIGHT. You can not LOOSE weight.
However, if you LOSE weight, your clothes may become LOOSE!

Oh, and YOUR vs YOU'RE?
YOU'RE going to buy new clothes because YOUR clothes became too LOOSE when you started to LOSE weight.

:) End of PSA :)

“This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.” - Anonymous

Soooo... it looks like I might be moving to WY next year! I'd love to pick your brain about SPED in Wyoming schools. Where are you by the way?

And thanks for your comment on my blog :)

Thanks for the add! I've got to tell you, your picture of the comparison between five pounds of muscle and five pounds of fat is awesome..and really motivating. I need to remember that and use it to keep me exercising through those times when the scale slows down.

Have a great weekend! emoticon

Hoping you will have a speedy recovery. I have also been recovering from foot surgery since beginning of September. I am trying hard to eat less so that I don't gain too much weight since I am laying on my back for most of the day. I have been working on doing some exercises while recovering to keep some level of fitness going. I just discovered that SP has information on isometric exercises which might be helpful. Anyway, hope all goes well with your recovery! emoticon emoticon
