Hello! I am a teacher in suburban St. Louis--a reading specialist, more specifically. I'm in my 11th year of teaching, and I'm finally tackling the weight I've put on since I started my career. There's the stress of the job that is enough to pack on pounds, but then there's the resulting lack of energy that leads to making poor food choices and not exercising. However, thanks in part to SparkPeople, things ARE getting better!!!

Member Since: 1/3/2009

SparkPoints: 76,185

Fitness Minutes: 27,873

My Goals:
Drop the 70 pounds or so that I have gained since I started teaching (most of which came in the last couple of years).

My Program:
~ Tracking my food intake as diligently as possible. Even when I'm not behaving. ;)

~ Tracking my exercise, which includes walking in my neighborhood, DVDs, strength training, yoga, and stretching routines. I am currently using lots of Leslie Sansone videos for cardio, Jillian Michaels for strength and Katherine Coffee and Tamilee Webb for stretching routines.

~ Wearing a pedometer to track my steps. I really try to shoot for 10000 steps, but my daily SP goal is a more realistic 7500.

Personal Information:
I live in the St. Louis, MO, area with my husband Matt and our cute dogs Mollie and Sandy.

Other Information:

I love sports (Royals, Chiefs, Cardinals, Blues, Rams, Mizzou Tigers, Missouri State Bears), politics, and reading books that help my personal growth without being too New Age-y.

"Above all else, do NOT quit! The universe always bows to persistence.
The empowering approach is to see your physical challenges as assets, because overcoming obstacles forces you to develop discipline, determination and character.
These traits will carry over to other areas of your life and make you a stronger person.”
-Tom Venuto

"It takes effort and belief to persevere and stay dedicated to accomplish your goal.
When you find yourself doubting whether the effort is worth it,
visualize how you will feel and what you will have once your goal is completed."

“Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect.
There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions.
So what. Get started now.
With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.”

"Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself.
Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them -- every day begin the task anew -"
