So January 13, 2013 changed my life. That's when I started losing the largest chunk of weight I have ever done before ...

When I met my boyfriend, we became so happy and carefree that I stopped pushing myself as I had when I was single. And I gained 25 lbs. back from my lowest weight.

So now, with him at my side, I am knocking out the last part of this weight. :)

My goal is 40 lbs. by the end of 2014. I will be running races, running weekly, lifting weights, and coaching. All things that keep me incredibly active. I am so looking forward to it!

Here comes the reboot! :)

I'm just looking for constant inspiration! If you are too, or are looking for a buddy, please let me know! I'm more than willing to talk to all kinds of folks - so please feel free to friend me! :)

My Goals:
I am looking to lose weight in order to be healthier, mainly, but the superficial benefits can't be counted out either. :)

My Program:
My overall objective is to become more active and eat healthier - I'm eating on the Weight Watchers 360 program, and I spice up my exercise regimen fairly often. I enjoy BodyPump (when I can get there), BodyCombat (most Monday evenings), as well as hitting some circuit training with the stair climber, treadmill, elliptical, and some squats, abs, lunges, etc. thrown in!!! I also play football at the Fieldhouse with my awesome Lady Rhinos football team every Sunday evening, which is a much better workout than you'd think! (I play offense AND defense, so I'm on the field for 70 percent of games!)

Personal Information:
I'm a military brat turned Virginia girl ... I've been here about 19 of my 29 years (on and off, of course ... As is the life of a Marine's daughter), so I consider myself a pretty dedicated Northern Virginia girl.

I'm currently an English teacher in my home county. :) A new adventure every day, that is for sure! I love my job and the challenges it presents to me all the time - my kids (students) are my LIFE.

I'm a music, color guard, movie and overall art nerd. I appreciate the artistic things in life because I feel they're the most authentic.

Other Information:

    Those born on the Virgo-Libra cusp enjoy beauty and all things sensual. They may find themselves drawn to the arts, attractive people, and precious objects or wish to make themselves and their surroundings more pleasing to the eye. They have a great mind for details, and do a terrific job running a business or planning a large gathering because of this talent.
    Virgo-Libra may be conflicted in some areas. While both signs Virgo and Libra are concerned with taste and aesthetics, they can lack in emotional or intuitive areas. They may find that what is pretty on the outside isn't so nice on the inside. Ultimately to be happy, they need to make the inside beautiful, too.
    If they want to succeed, they should stop being so concerned with appearances. They should keep their search for beauty alive, and try to keep from becoming compulsive or cynical. They should not neglect their spirituality or get too caught up in materialism.
    Virgo-Libra is responsible and they attempt to be as fair as possible. They are good team workers, but they can lack self-confidence. They are polite and open-minded, but they love a good debate. Kind and considerate, they rarely show their anger in public. Instead, they may use some subtle way to get even.
    Virgo-Libra is health-conscious, which helps them take good care of themselves and their children. They like to exercise, though they do have a definite lazy streak. Think of the cat, stretched out in the sunny patch on the sofa: that is Virgo-Libra. Exercise is more appealing when they can socialize at the same time.
    In love, those born on the Virgo-Libra cusp are romantic, devoted and playful. They pick up the important little details that delight their partner. They want a peaceful, harmonious relationship. They can see all sides of a situation which can make them very just, but can prove maddening to those around them at times.
    They may have issues with being satisfied. No matter how good something is, they can still see flaws. If something is imperfect, they are inclined to get rid of it. Tiny flaws will eat at them until they can get them fixed.
    Persons born on the cusp of Virgo-Libra are practical, hard working, diligent, meticulous, attractive, logical, charming, shy, modest, efficient, romantic, devoted and polite. They can also be unfair, aloof, easily influenced, self-indulgent, fussy, insecure, have hypochondriac tendencies and indecisive. The Cusp of Beauty sounds pleasant, but it can be a harsh taskmaster.
    They love nature and their feet are firmly grounded. Their heads are still way up in the air, though. They may be artistic, or be able to design their home in the most aesthetic styles. They like science.
