Update: January 2014
Life is a journey, I have always said this. My journey this year includes a few simple goals. I say simple, but I don't really mean it. Play in Vegas this year (I couldn't play last year). Get back to my pre injury weight (almost there) and maintain it. And last but certainly not least, figure out my life. Oh, that's all, lol. Join me, follow me, let me follow you. Please be a part of my journey :)

Today (July 2012) I am very close to my goal weight and maintaining, yay me!

Whatever curve ball life throws at you, SparkPeople is a great place to be! I am having ACL (knee) surgery in a week and with the help of my Spriends, I will hit this one out of the ball park!

Came to Spark in 2011, just to lose a few pounds and be proactive about my health. I learned to eat healthier, try new activities and lean on new friends for support.

    I thought of you today while out running and said I must stop by and say hello!! I did 3.5 miles and felt great!

    Thanks for my goodie! I made it through the week, but it is hare getting back into the swing of things. I worked out every day while I was teaching, but this weekend, littlest girl came down with something yucky, and I've just been playing nursemaid. No exercise at all! (I've also been indulging my jelly belly sweet tooth, so I'm scared to climb on the scale right now...)

    I hope you are doing better than I am! :) How are your new students???

    Thank you sooo much for the nice comment on my blog. Yes, I am hoping that the economy greatly improves by the time my Dds are off in college. emoticon

    It makes me happy to think of you, dancing on streetcorners, thinking of me! I started classes yesterday, today I meet the other half of my student for the first time.

    Yesterday, the template I use for my powerpoint presentations somehow corrupted itself, so the very first lecture of the semester would only show the bullets and background, no text! UGH! I just showed all the slides in editing mode, but I couldn't believe such a weird thing happened.

    Ah... the joys of tech in education!

    Good luck with your new classes - I hope they are awesome!
