I'm a twenty-seven-year-old California native who has always felt like I should have been born in a different era and place. My curvy body and creamy pale skin is better suited to Romantic-era London, not sunny California during a time when a size 2 is held up as the only healthy ideal to which women should aspire. Ah well.

My life is in a large amount of flux right now - my husband and I recently moved, I'm entering a new field for work and just started a master's degree. I'm busy and loving it, but also trying to get back into good eating habits.

I want to challenge my body, eat in ways that make me feel good, and learn to love myself for who I am now.

Member Since: 3/10/2008

Fitness Minutes: 3,421

My Goals:
1. Learn to eat well as a matter of habit. Try new foods, revisit things I may not have liked in the past - tastes change!

2. Get fit for a possible trip to Maui next year. My husband and I visited the Big Island in 2009 and hiked quite a bit, and it was fun. Maui seems much more ocean-oriented, though, and I want to be sure I'm strong enough to snorkel and handle ocean currents safely.

My Program:
1. Eat 1500-1850 calories a day.

2. Gym at least twice a week: 25 minutes of cardio plus weights. One other long workout each week - could be the gym again, or a long walk, tennis, etc. Get 10 minutes of exercise all other days.

Personal Information:
I majored in creative writing in college, love Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, James Joyce, Oscar Wilde and Maragaret Atwood. I have considered becoming a member of the cult of Isis. I'm a hopeless nerd who has attended myriad midnight openings of Star Wars films (and, as many of my fandom kin, was increasingly more disappointed), has corresponded with book publishers regarding ill treatment of her favorite Star Wars characters, and has attempted to make a lightsaber. Mara Jade is my personal hero. I have a detailed ready answer for the question "Picard or Kirk?" (Picard!) I speak a tiny bit of Klingon, and have learned to curse extravagently in Mandarin thanks to Joss Whedon's series "Firefly".
