I'm looking to develop healthy living habits, to lose weight and be able to be a model of both healthy living and body acceptance for my future kids. I'm 31 now, with a B.Mus. in Voice and Opera, a graduate diploma in Education, Environment and Community, and will complete my M.Ed. in the near future. I'm married to a beautiful, smart woman, and we're changing our poor food/excercise habits together, although in different ways.
-To be in better shape/have better habits when I get pregnant
-To develop healthy habits that I can maintain for years to come.
-To wear around a 14/16
Eat food. Mostly plants. Not too much.
Once the goal of Operation:Baby has been achieved, my plan is to lose 10%, maintain for 3-6 months, repeat, in hopes of convincing my body to reset its "default" weight to lower and lower levels, so ultimately maintaining a healthy weight won't be as difficult.
I've lived in the following places (in chronological order): Portland, OR, Tacoma, WA, Evanston, IL, Olympia, WA, Worcester, MA and am back in Tacoma. I went to Annie Wright for HS, Northwestern for undergrad, and am working on my Master's at U. Washington. The greatest year of my life thus far was during my Graduate Residency at IslandWood, where I got to live, learn, and teach in close community and play in the woods with kids.
I'm medieval history and music nerd. I love anything Joss Whedon, and Torchwood is my current obsession. I'm a Unitarian and a Girl Scout, and I love helping things grow (plants, animals, kids, organizations . . .). I have the best kitty in the world, Astrid.
