The Tough Get Going

Weight loss is a process and I seem to be restarting that process. After some great success in 2011, life--AKA my ability to attempt to eat my feelings--got in the way.

So here I am, April 2013, getting back into the swing of things. Making time for having a life, getting fit, working and going to grad school. It isn't easy to juggle so much, but it very much worth the effort. I feel better already. :)

I am following the "Eat To Live" plan which is essentially a low fat vegan eating plan. I am not a vegan, I am following Eat To Live. The difference is this: I still will eat items where dairy is the fifth item down the ingredient list and I wear leather shoes.
I eat as clean and as organic as possible.




Personal Information:
I'm Jenn, from Columbus, Ohio. I'm 40, an ICU nurse and I'm currently in grad school.

I love kayaking. Don't ask about the kayaking unless you want to hear ALL about the kayaking. :)


I love to read and my Ipod is the best gift I've ever received for getting fit.

Other Information:
*Do or do not, there is no try.
*No excuses. I'm either doing what I know to be the right things to lose weight or I am not. Period.
*Get busy losing or get busy dying slowly.
