I'm swimming at the pool at the Regent Grand in Turks and Caicos!





I named this photo "Happy Kelly" -- the beach agrees with me!

Keeping Fit and Healthy

I'm here on Spark to continue and enrich my healthy lifestyle. I don't need to be the fittest or the thinnest, but I do want to be healthy! My main goals are to eat well (fruits and veggies, fiber, and less dessert) and exercise regularly. I'm 5'8" and have a healthy BMI. I have to eat gluten free because I have celiac disease.

I love the gym -- I never thought I'd say that! I take classes, which keeps me motivated. I aim for ~1000 fitness minutes every month. I try not to put too ...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. We didn't get to the movies again today and I know we won't tomorrow because the Packer game is on. Oh well, it was a great day anyway -- hope yours was too.

Thanks for your comment on my blog! Yeah, no translator for students who don't speak English unless you're lucky enough to have a student who can translate for you. This student speaks spanish, so fortunately we have a few kids who will be able to help out. But we mostly just work on teaching them English. He'll receive English Language Learner services in addition to what we provide in class, but we do a lot of modifications to help him learn. More visuals, and that sort of thing. We somehow make it work.

Thanks I'm really glad its over, but really excited to see what this change will be like now with less pressure to comply and just live. I'm really looking forward to continuing making all of our meals for the most part. It was difficult to make meals with our schedules, but we got to eat, right? Knowing whats all in your food is a pretty cool feeling as well as the feeling of accomplishment from making your all meals. Its been exhausting and our kitchen is trashed (no dishwasher and our sink was down all last weekend!!) but we do feel closer. Food is more enjoyable because of the work that's put into it and the closeness that's created while cooking is nice too. I didn't really grow up with the whole family meal thing and it was something that was lacking in my own now.. my husband and I have a bad habit of food in bed.. I think I will reintroduce all of the food groups back into my life, but I also plan on maintaining the loss from this experience. I'm really looking forward to coffee with real cream and vanilla syrup, sushi and chicken tacos with corn tortillas topped with black beans & corn salsa.. and WINE. That's what I'm planning on having tomorrow on my first free day. Doesn't sound bad at all, sounds pretty amazing actually and for the most part good for me.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am trying to get that motivation back -- no matter how much it kicks and screams. emoticon
