DAILY AFFIRMATION: "I love to move my body! I feel fat burning off of me like the heat of a supernova! I eat the right amount of calories, and I am healthy and happy!"

I'm looking forward to learning to eat healthfully, finding a way to exercise that I don't hate and that won't hurt me (arthritis), and being accountable with people who understand what I'm going through. ***Update 27 Nov 2012: I no longer suffer from the pain of arthritis!!!! Working out in healthy ways has changed my life!!*** @@@ Update April 4, 2016: This is HARD but it has to be done! Eating healthy foods and exercising has to become a HABIT ... so I begin again... le sigh

Member Since: 7/2/2012

Fitness Minutes: 12,239

My Goals:
My goals are to strengthen and tone my body, inside and out.

My next goal is to lower my blood pressure and cholesterol so I can stop taking those medications. Also to use my nutrition to raise my potassium so I can stop taking that medication too!

Finally, it is my goal to manage my reaction to certain known stressors in my life by addressing sleep issues, food, and fitness.

My Program:
I track my food and fitness daily and have made major changes to what and how I eat.

I have connected with others on Spark Teams, and journal regularly, keep a sleep journal, and even a blog or two.

I remind myself how much I have to be grateful for and I give encouragement and support to those in my circle of influence.

Personal Information:
I am a college professor, and LOVE teaching and working with my students!! But my administration is awful and terrorizing. I am learning to manage the stress of my work environment.

I manage to keep it all together externally, but my blood pressure, cholesterol, and weight have sky rocketed in only the last two years...no surprise why!

Other Information:
I'm a Jane Austen junkie!

I have also watched the "West Wing" series from beginning to end about 20 times!

I'm a college professor and LOVE my work!

I love people!
