I am long standing member of Sparkpeople. My goals are listed below:

1) Drink 8 glasses of water/day -- this is a goal that I have to stretch to reach since I just sip my water throughout the day.

2) Track my nutrition intake using the Sparkpeople tracker.

3) Track my calories burned using the Sparkpeople fitness tracker.

4) Eat at least 5 fruits/veggies per day.

5) Exercise 5-6 days/wk for a minimum of 30 minutes on cardio days, and 20 minutes for strength training.

I a First Place 4 Health Member and have lost 10 pounds in 12 weeks. God is first place in my life and is helping me to make the right choices to stay healthy, fit and live a good life.

Member Since: 4/6/2010

Fitness Minutes: 43,258

My Goals:
My biggest goal is to be energetic and feel the best that I can to live life to the fullest.

My Program:
My plan is to exercise 5-6 days a week for at least 30 minutes and do strength training 2-3 days a week. My favorite exercise is interval training, which alternates cardio with strength training. My plan is to do interval training Monday, Wednesday and Friday and walk, jog and bike on the weekends. I am drinking smoothies with no sugar for breakfast; low carb lunches to keep my energy up during the work day; one or two healthy snacks and a well balanced dinner.

Personal Information:
I am 60 years old and a teacher. I have a faithful husband who loves to bicycle with me and walk together. I have a beautiful and talented 21 year old daughter, and a cute shi-poo named Biscuit.

    I do have an awesome job!!! I get to work with Kindergarteners through 5th graders. Some of the things that I get to do: teach "guidance" lessons, meet with students who are needing any and all sorts of help, help teachers help struggling students, get students tested for academic difficulties, and help out in any other places I'm needed. It's a lot of fun for the most part. Have a wonderful Friday!

    I taught students with severe/profound multiple disabilities for 16 yrs. I've taught students with moderate disabilities for the past 8 yrs. They come to me for reading, writing, math, and social goals and spend part of their day in general ed too. I have a great class this year!

    I’m just cruising around cheering folks through their journey to health!

    “Fight one more round. When your arms are so tired that you can hardly lift your hands to come on guard, fight one more round. When your nose is bleeding and your eyes are black and you are so tired that you wish your opponent would crack you one on the jay and put you to sleep, fight one more round – remembering that the man who always fights one more round is never whipped.” ~ James Corbett

    “If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.” ~ Jack Dixon

    “It does not take much strength to do things, but it requires great strength to decide on what to do.” ~ Elbert Hubbard

    Have a healthy week!
