So 2013 will always be the year I ran the Pittsburgh Marathon as part of a relay team!!! :-) Hopefully, 2015 will be the year I run three half marathons!

I've made a lot of progress toward my goals already by completing the Pittsburgh Half Marathon, but I'm determined to stay on track and keep up the hard work. I have the Morgantown Half Marathon on the horizon!!

I continue to deal with some personal health issues, but I am getting through everything with the Lord above, my AMAZING mother, loving husband (who is an amazing dad!), challenging toddler, and our newest furbaby.


"There are no shortcuts to any place worth going!"




I'm a 36 year old female from Southwestern PA. I am a retired librarian and now spend my spare time as an online health and fitness coach and training pups. This is in addition to being a wife and mother! At one point, I wore a size 24 and tipped the scales at nearly 290 pounds. I lost weight and was close to my goal at a lowest weight of 137. I've let way too many pounds creep back on since I got married in 2006. I'm not going to make excuses. I can use the effort I would waste on that to get healthy for life!

My Goals:
My goals seem to be very fluid and keep changing, but I know I need to continue to eat healthy, exercise, and lose weight so my back and body feel GREAT!

I'm also going to continue to use my BodyBugg to monitor myself and make sure I'm on the right path and making the right choices for my overall good health!

My Program:
Some agility practice with Harley, a little more playing with the dogs, and lots of time running!!! Finally, I LOVE challenging myself on xbox Kinect... I can totally feel the burn on the fitness games...

Personal Information:

Other Information:
I love my Steelers, my dogs, and reading... I've gotten really into dystopian fiction lately. I'm also an avid reader of James Patterson and Sandra Brown... It is hard to find a book I don't enjoy some part of... :-D

    Thank you so much for the flowers, they are beautiful. And for thinking about me, it is so appreciated. I'm doing okay, of course I miss Alice. I love all my babies but she, I must say, was my sweetest. She really never minded a cuddle, and I miss that. But I also know that with my choice of furbabies that I have to live with the down sides. And I wouldn't trade what they give me for anything.

    I want to say congratulations!! How exciting for you! Having a baby! You will be in my prayers and I hope to share in your joy.
