Goal: To feel like a superhero!

I have always preferred activities which involve sitting: reading, net-surfing, online gaming, tabletop gaming, painting, jewelry making, and other crafts. For several years I have wrestled with tendonitis and ulnar nerve irritation, due to long-term computer use. Over time, these habits (with little to no exercise and not watching my diet) have taken their toll on my body.

I have always preferred activities which involve sitting: reading, net-surfing, online gaming, tabletop gaming, painting, jewelry making, and other crafts. For several years I have wrestled with tendonitis and ulnar nerve irritation, due to long-term computer use. Over time, these habits (with little to no exercise and not watching my diet) have taken their toll on my body.

My initial inspiration was wanting to feel comfortable wearing my summer clothes. (There were many clothes I missed wearing which became too tight.) I also want to reduce stress, and lessen chronic pain in my shoulders and arms.

**This August I am attending a cousin's bar mitzvah and seeing family I haven't seen in years. I would love to feel more confident in my body by the time I get to see them!

I am tracking all my eating and exercise on this site, and minimizing my intake of refined sugar. I set a goal of working out 3 days a week.
