I am getting married October 2017! In my 7 years with Sparkpeople there's never been a stronger incentive than my true vintage 1950's satin wedding gown.

Hi I am Samantha, I was born three months premature on a Native American reservation in Montana, I am half German & half Native American. I've been living near Dusseldorf Germany for three years.

I am 34 years old and work as a social sciences teacher at a bilingual high school. This job literally has me on my feet all day and is full of all the challenges one can imagine working with children/families in an extremely bureaucratic/work obsessed society :) My work keeps me alert and Sparkpeople keeps me accountable!


Member Since: 8/10/2010

Fitness Minutes: 133,267

My Goals:
Try to get my troublesome Native American belly flat without surgery (though I am considering it.) I hope controlling my insulin via a wheat free diet will help.

I eat clean, high protein and high fruit/vegetable diet. I never started with alcohol on account of my cultural background:(


My Program:

I have a treadmill, parked conveniently in front of the tv :)

I walk constantly, that's the good thing about living and working in Western Europe. We rely a lot less on cars and are always running for trains, buses and trams.. As teacher I am constantly on my feet and so busy sometimes I forget to eat (which is not good, I know)





Personal Information:
I am fanatical about travel! :P I grew up working class and always wanted to travel so I work hard and save to be able to backpack in different countries. So far I have been to:

Argentina
Armenia
Australia
Austria
Belgium
Canada
Czech Republic
Colombia
Denmark
Ecuador
England
Fiji
France
Germany
Holland
Hungary
India
Ireland
Japan
Morocco
Panama
Poland
Portugal
Russia
Slovakia
Switzerland
Spain
Sweden
Turkey
Ukraine
United States
Uruguay


Other Information:
I just finished my MA of Secondary Special Education in May 2011 which allowed me to move to Australia for two years. One day when all my student loan debt is paid off (har har!) I'd like to get another MA in Bilingual Education focusing on Spanish & German.

    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Spring challenge will be getting started the beginning of March. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Winter we had Help Santa Fill His Sleigh, Run Rudolf Run and Super Bowl. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Spring challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Thread.

    Thank you for the friend add and I have added you as well. I've been to Germany twice, but that was eons ago. The first time was the Army hospital in Frankfort. Our son was severely allergic to bee and wasp stings and we were medivaced there for testing. This was in December and we got to visit the Christkindl Markets and walked many miles in the city after the testing was finished. The second time was for pleasure. A friend and I spent two weeks with a Eurorail pass and toured Germany and Austria. Berchtesgaden was by far the most beautiful place on Earth that I have ever seen. When I stepped off the train, the view took my breath away!

    I look forward to getting to know you and we make the journey to better health.
