GO BLUE!

Hi! I am a theoretical mathematician who just graduated from the Ph.D. program at the University of Michigan and followed my boyfriend (also an alum of the same program) to St. Louis. I am still getting used to the city while trying to define a career path outside of academia (read: still looking for employment!).

Hi! I am a theoretical mathematician who just graduated from the Ph.D. program at the University of Michigan and followed my boyfriend (also an alum of the same program) to St. Louis. I am still getting used to the city while trying to define a career path outside of academia (read: still looking for employment!).

SP is helping me to lead a healthy(-ish) lifestyle while making new friends with like-minded goals. :) This includes preparing more meals from scratch and making sure I am getting enough vitamins and nutrients from food sources, rather than a multivitamin. I am also a recreational runner (usually only short distances of 1-3 miles, 3-5x per week).

I have an appreciation for almost all kinds of food (fast food and healthy food alike) and find that moderation works for me. The only foods I tend to avoid are ones that contain unnatural sources of trans fats (partially hydrogenated oils), but I would like to eat more fresh fruits & veggies and less meat while keeping my daily protein intake above 60 grams.

Average intake: 1700-1925 cal/day (less active) or 2000-2200 cal/day (more active)

omgggg your comment about crossfitters was hilarious, I lol'd for sure. When my friend showed up, she IMMEDIATELY started in on it. I was like... please, stop, now.

Overall it just bothers me when people push THEIR fitness stuff on you. I mean - I joined spark so I expect it on here a bit. But in my living room at 10pm? Please. I am tired and in my sweats and I don't care about your box jumps or lifts or whatever. Or on facebook ALL OF THE TIME.

Anyways, thanks for the chuckle. Hope all is well on your side?!

emoticon for your comment on my blog. After reading your comment I checked the BMI calculators. 118 would be in the lower part of the "healthy" range (approximately at 19.6) Like you said, not attaching emotions to the scale is hard work!
