Living in the Pacific Northwest, raising two Miniature Schnauzers, and trying to make each day count.

Member Since: 5/28/2019

Fitness Minutes: 264

My Goals:
I've been up and down for my entire life, now my focus is on just being present wherever I am, be it flying through the highs or swimming in the lows, or resting in between.

I want to reduce my weight, of course, but I also want to heal my relationship with my body, mind and spirit. That seems more important to me, and I believe that by doing so, I will find the other takes care of itself.

My Program:
I am working with some home DVDs, trying out Slim in 6 with Debbie Sievers, which I have used in the past with success. I am also using meditation, yoga and mindful breathing. For food, I am working on eating protein rich, lean meals, with veggies and fruits in abundance. Trying not to be too restrictive, but also cutting back on sugars, sweets, and alcohol.

Personal Information:
I'm a teacher by trade, but a student in spirit. I am always looking to learn, invent, create, and be inspired by the world around me. I am currently learning to read Tarot, for reflection and soul searching, not for forecasting. I love to sing, play with my dogs, and spend time at the beach. I am married to a wonderful woman, and we work very hard to create balance in our lives together.

Other Information:
Please be respectful of boundaries, I am not looking for advice or judgement in my life, whether around my spirituality or my sexual identity. I grieve that this must be stated, but want to avoid misunderstandings. I am respectful of all paths, all beliefs, all loves and all people. If you are too, please friend me, and if not, be blessed in your pursuit of what makes you happy.
