I teach fitness classes as a hobby (BodyPump, Insanity, and cycle), in addition to working a full-time job. Teaching is a huge part of my life. I get a charge out of helping members meet their fitness goals, as well as overcome other obstacles in their lives through fitness. They remind me that fitness isn't always about what you see improving on the outside, but how it feeds the soul and mind. I am honored that they allow me to be a part of their journey, and realize I learn as much from them as they do from me.
I'm also a single mom to 14-year-old twins. I have been down some rough roads with my kids over the years (my son is high-functioning autistic), but things are finally where they need to be, and both of my kids are thriving. I try to be involved in my kids' lives as much as possible, and am very proud of who they have become. I am grateful beyond words for the life that I have now. Lately, between work and home, I have taken too much time for others, and not enough for myself. This is where you come in ;-)
I know what I want from a relationship (and what I don't want), and am willing to wait for the right guy, so I'm not going to latch on to you, or waste your time just for the sake of having someone to spend time with. I've been described as affectionate, loyal, and light-hearted. I believe physical closeness is as important as emotional closeness. I also believe that couples need time apart to recharge, and to allow each person to maintain their identity. Let's start slow, have fun, and allow a friendship to build while an amazing romance unfolds. I believe that relationships take work and communication, and the best ones are those that are built over time.
