I'm 30 and have been living in Tokyo for 6 years. I'm naturally pretty small, but I have a pretty severe lack of muscle that has driven up my body fat percentage. I would like to bring it back down to a level more appropriate for the life I want to live. I also have a strong interest in fitness, health, and nutrition, particularly in cooking and eating healthy, wholesome, natural foods.. and fitting dessert in there as well.

I have been a member of SparkPeople for over 4 years, and feel that I have a good grasp on what I need to do to make myself healthier. I generally do well sticking to my routine of exercise and healthy eating once I get it started, but I have problems getting back on track when life happens and that routine gets interrupted. I'm hoping to become more consistent even when things don't go as planned.

I love nutrition and cooking, and use whole, fresh foods whenever possible. I like doing things myself, and prepare most of the foods I eat (including all breads, yogurt, nut butters, granola, butter, etc) from scratch using healthy, natural, whole ingredients.

At least 90% of what I eat during the week is entirely unprocessed.
