Running through Astronomy graduate school!

I've been dealing with food, exercise, weight, and self-esteem issues since I was a teenager especially through my college years. Now as an astronomy PhD student, I want to feel good about myself, sane, fit, and productive.

I love good food, I love good wine, and I would love to find the balance between indulgence and healthy habits!

I love running; I trained and ran my first half marathon this April and second half marathon this August. I got about halfway through marathon training for the Nike Women's Marathon which would have been this past October, but had to drop the training and running altogether because I developed runner's knee. After ~4 months of physical therapy, I'm running again! Woohoo! But after 2 months of marathon training (which made me super hungry!) and 2 months essentially off of cardio but still eating like a distance runner, I've gained about 12 pounds! I now weigh about 162. I've been trying to watch what I eat again, but really struggling this time. I would LOVE to be down to ~155 by Christmas.

Let's do what I did back when I lost this weight in 2010 (I went from ~180 to ~150 in the course of a year!) Mini-goals!

Mini-goals:
159: Back in the 150s -- New lulu running shorts/capris!
155:
150:
148: "Ultimate" goal weight. Garmin sports watch!

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"
