Striving to live a healthy, happy life

My name is Kira, and I currently live in Nashville, TN. I am a graduate student and a candidate for ordination in the Episcopal Church.

I initially joined SP to lose weight for my wedding on June 7, 2008 and got down to my goal weight of 120. But after the wedding, a combination of getting "fat and happy" and the stresses of grad school, working, and being a wife took their toll. I'm now back up to where I was before and am not happy about it.

But after the wedding, a combination of getting "fat and happy" and the stresses of grad school, working, and being a wife took their toll. I'm now back up to where I was before and am not happy about it.

I love to cook and am often tempted by some foods that are not-so-good for me, particularly baked goods. I try to use Cooking Light and Eating Well recipes as my inspiration, as well as keeping portion sizes under control. I'm kind of a foodie, which makes eating healthier that much harder!

Exercise-wise, I go to the gym and usually do the Arc-Trainer and strength-training. If it's a nice day, Joe and I live by a greenway and enjoy going on walks together.

Goals - 125 by my ordination in June, run a sub-2:30 half marathon in April, lift weights 2x a week

Hi there!
Stumbled on your page and thought I'd stop to say hello! I had a similar situation happen where I lost weight on SP only to gain it back. Ugh. Seems like it was much easier to lose the first go round! It's especially frustrating being on the petite side... I'm 5'3" also and a few pounds means a higher clothing size!

Anyways I'm sure if we keep at this we will meet our goals again! emoticon

Hi to you, too! I'm not a vegetarian either, but Matt's a great friend and a great blogger. He's given me plenty of good advice to help build my own blog.
