Where I have been? The question many of my Spark friends have been asking. After losing the babies I had a lot to deal with personal, mental and physical. I jumped off the band wagon and had to heal for awhile. I am still healing. But now I am ready to face my challenges, live with this new knowledge and start heading into a healthier lifestyle.
Yesterday while working with my students I said the chant, "When you think your done, you have only just begun." It is my new slogan for this year. I thought my life was over yet I am still here, realizing I am stronger than I ever give myself credit for.
So to my Spark friends I am back!

Member Since: 8/28/2007

Fitness Minutes: 12,409

My Goals:
My brother is getting married in August. I would like to lose 50 lbs by then so that I can look good in the photos.

Goals for April:
*Take a spin class once a week.
*Start training for a 5K.
*Continue to stay within my calorie range.
*Take 15 minutes a day to meditate/yoga.
*Lose 5-10 lbs and post a picture of the new me on April 30th (my 31st b-day)

My Program:
Using this program I am tracking my food and workouts. I am venting to my husband and friends, I stress out a lot. I get in at least 30 minutes of exercise with Monday being my only day off. Strength training is going well so I am moving it up to 4 days a week. I am trying 3 new recipes a week. And take out is limited to once a week.

Personal Information:
I have a loving husband who is my biggest supporter and my best friend. We will be married for 9 years in May. I have an 11 year old cat, she is my fur child, named Tasha. I swear she acts like a human child at times! I am currently a reading teacher and LOVE teaching my students.

Other Information:
I love SPARK! The members are awesome! I enjoy reading a good book with a cup of coffee in my hand. I have fun talking with friends and walking through the park. I enjoy playing water volleyball with my gym friends. I am always up for a challenge because it encourages me to face fears and try something new.
