"Back to the beginning
Gonna hit rewind
Chance to do it over
Get it right this time
Life gives you pennies
Turn them into dimes
I''m in the middle of starting over" ~Sabrina Carpenter

I am at a starting over point in my fitness journey. Over this past summer I was working out consistently, but I have actually gained weight. I think I can pretty much admit that diet was a part of that.

It''s time to stop thinking about how fit I was 3-4 years ago and be more concerned with my current state and where I want to be! Looking over my shoulder will prevent me from looking towards the future. So I updated my page with current photos of my family and will keep moving forward!

Updates: November 2015- I have been doing really well since I "started over" at the end of August. I have bet $100 over the last couple of months with Diet Bet and have won $42 for my weight loss and lost about 16 lbs. Can't complain about that!

I am still going to the gym 3-4 times a week and breaking a sweat. When I go 10 times a month, I receive an $18 check from my school district to reimburse me for my gym membership. Isn't that awesome? I have been reimbursed $70 since June for this. As you can see I love money (my family is a bunch of degenerate gamblers :) so that keeps me going back to the gym for sure.


Member Since: 1/15/2008

Fitness Minutes: 32,049

My Goals:
Back half of 2015

1. Get back down to the lower 170's again. It's hard realizing where I used to be as compared to where I am now, but I HAVE TO look forward.

2. Get on a steady workout regimen. Something I have struggled with for a long time.

3. I have been tracking my food since the end of August and I am still shooting for 1600-1800 calories a day.


My Program:
-Play volleyball and coaching it.

- I love taking step aerobics so I go to 2-3 classes a week. If there isn't a class, I'll do some cardio.



Personal Information:
I am your not typical PE teacher. I am a big time over-achiever and don't want to settle with just "rolling out the basketballs" every day. I have an after school running club with tons of kids running local races. I also have a successful jump rope team.

Never ever, ever, underestimate what a kid can do. My kids will challenge anyone to anything. It does not matter if its pushups, running, sit-ups, sit and reach, or pull ups, MY KIDS WILL BEAT YOU.


Other Information:
I love to read. I love to re-read. I love to re-re-re-read. I am a nerd. I admit it.

    Hi! So, OMG, my bff wants us to sign up for a 5/15K in December (a Hot Chocolate Run--like I could resist that). She really wants us to try the 15K. The most I've ever run is 6 miles and I haven't done that in months--mostly because there's been no reason to--lol. I'm a "plan" girl. I like a training plan (last summer I did the C25K). So, I'm wondering if you followed a specific training program when you did the HM training. If only the race offered a 10K, I wouldn't hesitate. Plus, I have almost 6 months to train.

    I'd welcome any advice or suggestions. Hope all is well with you!
