virtual models of myself at my starting weight, my half-way weight, and my goal weight
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I''m a teacher who just moved to Tucson, AZ. I love to cook and hate to exercise. My goal at the moment is to get 15,000 steps in every day, and get to the rock climbing gym. My other goal is to get some of the "have-tos" done, and don''t accept/give myself any more, so that I won''t feel so swamped all of the time.
I want to be healthy and in good shape, and I'd like to be back to the size I was in college, only without the "tummy". I think this will end up being about 20# less than the size I was in college...
I've started using the SparkDiet, and I'm trying to exercise at least 30 minutes a day -- I'm trying to get to the gym for biking, running, and swimming. I've been pretty good at the "at least 30 minutes" thing, so I'm trying to add in strength training at least 3x/week, if not 6x.

I love to cook, and my other hobbies are reading and cross-stitching. Very sedentary! We also like to go camping and hiking, so I'm trying to get my knee and hip in shape so I can backpack without pain.

You can look at a mountain as a wild place of beauty to view or paint or photograph from a safe distance; or a wild place capable of destruction like Mount St. Helens. Or you can look at it as a wild challenge that you take on one step at a time. When you begin the challenge you'll have no idea how long it will take to get to the top, but you know you will with the support of your team.
We are here for you! We'll help you climb that mountain. You'll find us on the rocky slopes, the shady valleys, the wild flower meadows, the glacier lakes. New Challenges are starting Sunday.
