A picture of a Crocus I took on St. Pat's Day this year, 2010. It reminds me of Easter.

I'm a vegetarian self-professed foodie who needs to find a way to enjoy all the foods I love, without gaining all the pounds I don't.

Member Since: 1/5/2010

Fitness Minutes: 5,943

My Goals:
Long Term:
1) To get healthy and confident enough to try out for the DC Rollergirls.

2) To lose enough weight that I can REALLY shop at vintage stores again.

3) To lose enough weight that I can go biking around the area comfortably.

Short term:
1) To complete my Fiction Writing class. *Half way done and loving it!*

2) To be able to continue keeping track of everything I eat and all the calories I burn.

3) To keep up with the walking and exercising, even as the weather gets warmer.

My Program:
1) Keeping track of the things I eat and the calories therein, and making sure I don't exceed my limits.

2) Making sure I go for at least two walks a week between classes.

3) doing strength training 2 times a week

4) Trying to fit in little exertions like playing field hockey on the lawn for 5-15 minutes after my walks.

Personal Information:
I am currently a student at Northern Virginia Community College, but hope to transfer to a four year college, possibly University of Maryland, in 2013 or there abouts. I am a reporter and copy editor for the NOVA Fortnightly, as well as run my own, very small, pet-sitting business. :) I am an environmental awareness advocate, as well as an animal lover (being a vegetarian for the past 20 years helps there!) I love Nature and all her creatures!

Other Information:
'All in all, Vermont is a jewel state, small but precious' -Pearl S. Buck.

'The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.'
-M. Gandhi

Favorite Books: To Kill A Mockingbird, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, Pride and Prejudice

Favorite Movies: Benny and Joon, A&E's Pride and Prejudice, A Fish Called Wanda, The Last of the Mohicans, Little Miss Sunshine, Wondrous Oblivion, 12 Angry Men

Utilize all the tools SP has to offer. I find tracking my food and exercise most helpful. Good luck on your weight loss journey!
