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)

Oh it's very funny how we switched places! We do love Lotte, but it's because it's one of the few places we know actually. Is that sad? We don't live in D.C. so we travel a long way to get to the stores but it's worth it. But, what is Great Wall? Wonder if it's better to purchase Chinese New Years celebration stuff... Only I don't speak Chinese but I speak Japanese. Hmm
