Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I love my one-and-only body and I am focused on treating it well, and with respect. That used to be a choice I wanted to make, but now it's a mandate.
For the immediate future, that means shedding the excess body fat which has been weighing me down in a sensible fashion. No deprivation, no guilt, no nonsense.
I believe in good food: always-delicious, mostly-nutritious and served in quantities which are compatible with my goals and activity level.
I believe in good exercise: moving my body in ways I find enjoyable nearly every day.
I believe in paying attention: monitoring my weight, activity level and intake consistently will get me where I want to be... and keep me there.
*weight-lifting at least 2x per week
*eat slowly and mindfully
*Maintain or improve my overall health and fitness.
*Become leaner. Protect muscle with strength training and appropriate nutrition while reducing excess body fat.
Eat appropriately for my goals and activity level, get regular exercise.
Enjoy life each and every day.
My name is Julia.
I live near Providence, RI.
I love being outdoors - biking, hiking/walking, swimming... when indoors, I'm a big reader, cook, and occasional internet junkie.
I am a stone carver (mostly slate) in my spare time. Recent work is in my gallery and blog (sometimes).
I am crafty in many ways and will be opening an Etsy store in the near future - will post a link when it's live!

Thank you so much the the kind words on my blog. I "never" expected my simple story would touch so many people. What a wonderful reminder that Spark is not just an Internet group, but also a community of friends.

Thank you SO MUCH for your common sense post on my blog. I REALLY needed to hear that stuff - THANK YOU.
And yeah, my bf was kidding about the car. He's been putting up with all the irrational stuff, I think he has some wiggle room to be a little bit crazy too! He is pretty darn awesome and I'm lucky to have him - and supportive people like you on Spark!
I added you as a friend, hope that is okay? And I hope that you have a great weekend!

No, the breeder is about 5 hours away. I've never actually met the puppy or the breeder. I will be driving to pick up the pup though--I don't want to fly her. These Airedales are apparently not a dog that is bred in Wisconsin. She kept them in her house though, until the last week, when she moved them onto the porch. To me that speaks well of her. But you never really know.
