I am a 35 year old active, full-time working dietitian mother of an ambitious 7.5 year old girl, Jaeleigh, a wild 5.5 year old son, Jenson, and a sweet 2 year old girl, Emberlynn. I am married to the love of my life of 10 years (15 years dating) who is also an active 35 year old full-time working ER nurse father. In our spare time we are working on the continuous project of remodeling our home and just loving life! I enjoy cooking and baking (with new recipes especially!) and event planning.

Our family loves the outdoors and loves the beach. Vacationing is our passion, although at this time we only get to travel about once per year! We also love camping, skiing/snowboarding, snowshoeing, kayaking, and basically anything outside!

Right now my focus is settling down some and enjoying Christmas and New Years without gaining more weight. Then start the New Year off right with some new goals.

Member Since: 10/3/2008

My Goals:
This year I AM setting New Years Resolutions and here they are:

1. Log all foods/drinks in SparkPeople and stay within calorie range.
2. Wear and use my FitBit to reach 10,000 steps daily.
3. Start my Half Marathon training plan and stick with it!
4. Clean out our home! Clutter is not healthy!

My Program:

Personal Information:
I live in Northern Michigan where I work at a cute little hospital as a Clinical Dietitian and Program Coordinator / Certified Diabetes Educator for our out-patient Diabetes Education Program.

Other Information:
I love being outside. I like all of the seasons (winter is a smidge too long though). I love dark chocolate, learning more about nutrition, sports, running, the beach, cooking, and lots more!

    Thanks for your input on my blog about PB2!

    Like I said, I'm not really in the market for a substitute right now, but from what I can tell, when you do want the flavor but not the calories sugar and fat, this sounds like the best way to go... now if I were to add a couple peanuts to make it crunchy... hmmm.

    But then, I know that given how much I love PB--I sit and eat spoonsful at my desk for a snack at work, even--that as much as I'd like to eat it every day, my gallbladderlessness sometimes makes it hard for my body to process the fat, even healthy fats. So, that makes it even more appealing...

    The lady at my class mixed some up for us the other day, I should have mentioned, and instead of adding sugar, she added splenda. I couldn't really tell the difference.
