Me and the hubs.
Having fun at karaoke.
On a girls' cruise with my friend Morgan, February 2010.
My name is Natalie, I'm 31 years old, and I'm back from "Spark Hiatus" after a year. My last experience with Spark was a positive one, both weight-wise and socially, and I know it's what I need to get back on track.
I love yoga, and I've recently gotten into going to spin class, and I love to go for walks in the morning or evenings in the summer months.
I also really love food, as well as cooking, and I do partake in the cocktails, which can be factors in overindulgence much of the time.
Stay active. CONSISTENTLY active.
5 a Day Fruit & Veg.
Plenty of water all day.
Maintain a weight within 140-145 pounds.
More fruit and veg.
Cook healthy meals. (Plan ahead.)
Exercise: Yoga, cycling, cardio, strength exercises.
Green tea and vitamins.
I'm from New Mexico. I own my own business as a freelance Graphic Artist/Designer/Illustrator, which I love. I've never been happier with my life and my career than I am at this point, although it is a lot of work, and takes a lot of self-discipline.
I'm married to my sweetheart of 9 years, Ryan, a super cute computer geek/bass player/comedian/video game enthusiast. (i.e. Hot Geek.) We've been married for four years of the ten that we have been together. We have two kitties named Tanuki and Kitsu.
I love Adult Swim, karaoke, comedy, home decorating, art, and rock n' roll. Favorite bands: The Darkness, Queen, The National, The Killers, MGMT, Tool, Arcade Fire, The White Stripes, Thin Lizzy, Dethklok and more. Favorite shows: MST3K, Metalocalypse, Spaced, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, Tim and Eric Awesome Show: Great Job!

Hiya Shnookums! Actually, pretty much everything is shakin', which is why I have slunk back into spark world. :) Turns out I'm not as Smarty McSmarterson at maintaining this fitness stuff as I would have liked to think. Huh. Go fig. Anyway, correcting that situation. How YOU doin'? (As we say in Chicago.)
