I love living life and having fun. Creating Fused Glass Murals is my passion. A snapped achilles and a broken foot has slowed me down to the point of gaining weight. I'm out of my cast and intend to lose this weight now.

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
I have always lived life to the fullest. I have three of the most wonderful teenagers in the world. I snapped my achilles tendon and had the surgery to repair it. After many months and many casts I began to heal but had gained weight and I broke my foot dancing (someone stepped on it can you believe my luck) All of this injury has not stopped my from wanting to reach my fitness goals. I intend to lose the weight I gained and obtain a better lifestyle for fitness.

My Program:
First, I plan to get healthy by adding activity back into my life. I''m finally out of the casts that kept me from being active. I''ve been following a 1200 cal. plan with marginal success so adding the activity is key to me. Creating an environment conducive to healthy living is a tough goal with kids but I believe I can help them (none of them have weight issues...yet!) prevent future problems. I think having this website is wonderful because it''s important to discuss with others the issues that bring us to gaining too much weight. The feedback is important and I love how much of that you get here.

Personal Information:
I am a mom of 3 of the greatest teenagers on the planet! I am a full time fused glass muralist in Arizona. I teach pottery wheel throwing, glass fusion, and art classes. I love hiking (when I''m not in a cast), dancing, and camping. I love being outdoors. When I was younger I flew hang gliders and would love to do it again. I love anything to do with wind. Sailing, flying anything including kites, standing on top of a mountain feeling the breeze, hang gliding etc.

Other Information:
The meaning of life is to LIVE IT! I love traveling. I have been fortunate enough to travel to many countries and to many islands in the Caribbean and South Pacific. I love the tropics. I enjoy beaches and warm clear blue oceans. I am lucky that I was raised by parents that believed in following their passions. I certainly have done that!
