About Me

I’m a 25 year old high school teacher living in the St. Louis area with my husband and two dogs.  In October 2007 I found myself overweight (162 lbs. at 5’3″) and unhappy with my lifestyle.  I decided to make my millionth attempt at losing weight through calorie counting and regular exercise and for reasons unknown to me, this time, IT WORKED!  To date I’ve lost about 35 lbs through tracking my food and exercising and I’m officially addicted to trying to live a healthy lifestyle.  Running is my main form of exercise and I use sparkpeople.com to track my calorie intake (I’m still not quite to maintenance mode yet!).  This blog is documentation of my efforts to live healthier everyday!

    I sure like the way you have the web site. Your dinners look delicious.
    I am hoping you will give your old mom credit for your healthy eatting. Afterall, I am the one who said cake with double the icing is the way to start a day.
    Love you mom
