I decided since it is no longer Halloween to decorate my page with fall leaves, because they make me happy. I always struggle as the days get shorter and this semester has been particularly rough, and fall leaves make me happy. I remember my first year at college, I collected armloads of fall leaves around campus and taped them to the window of my dorm (probably wouldn't get away with it now, as it's probably considered a fire hazard). So I'm decorating my spark page with something purely for me for once.

I am a married graduate student in the process of trying to reclaim my health. I am hoping that Sparkpeople will help me get closer to where I want to be.

Member Since: 4/17/2009

Fitness Minutes: 114,164

My Goals:
My primary goal is to be healthier. I want to have more energy, less stress, less pain, and to be able to live the active life I used to have.

Sub goals:
1) Preferably, lose 30-50 lbs
2) Gain back muscle mass and improve cardio fitness
3) Eliminate hip pain
4) Eliminate headaches
5) Eliminate carpal tunnel and tendinitis problems
6) Better manage allergies and asthma

My Program:
1) Eat a relatively healthy diet without obsessing about food. I refuse to stress about whether or not I eat another slice of meat or treat myself to a bit of chocolate. I aim for moderation when it comes to food.

2) Try to work out 5 times a week, both strengthening and aerobic exercises, preferably for at least 30 minutes a work out session. These work out sessions include exercises and stretches specifically assigned by my doctor for reducing hip and hand/forearm pain.

3) Drink plenty of water, take the prescribed medications, and try to live responsibly in regards to my allergies.

Personal Information:
I am from Michigan.

    emoticon HOW TO DISPLAY: RavenPuff & SlytherDor at HOGWARTS on your SparkPeople Page. Go UP to Tabs at the TOP of any place you are at on the SP site. Highlight: COMMUNITY with your mouse. Select: SparkTeams. ALL OF YOUR TEAMS ARE NOW ON DISPLAY. The Button: Manage My Team Emails/Settings is to the top-right of your Teams displayed below that button. CLICK that button. ALL OF YOUR TEAMS SHOW TICK_OFF_BOXES. Choose what you *want* for/from THIS Team. If you want to *see* THIS Team on your SPpage, check: Display on SparkPage and you will be good ta' go!! We recognize your time is an important component to how well you can build a relationship with us and with your *new* Team, so we want to be as easily accessible as possible. On behalf of Hogwarts Staff, I hope this helps!! We hope you have *fun* and look forward to seeing you at the Castle.

    emoticon Ms Zanna,

    If you put this Link down in your Signature, you'll always FIND the:
    RavenPuff & SlytherDor at HOGWARTS

    Also, if you want your previous character profiles (the ones in your Signature) but you're running out of room, you can ALWAYS copy/paste them over *here* on your SPpage, or in other places where they won't get lost.

    Come by the Castle and set-up your TDR in your RAVENPUFF Common Room & RavenPuff TDRs Forum. I can bring the Directory & Challenge Template over to your TDR if you want me to.
    ::hugs:: HM Annie
