Striving for consistency...

I'm 30 and have been living in Tokyo for 6 years. I'm naturally pretty small, but I have a pretty severe lack of muscle that has driven up my body fat percentage. I would like to bring it back down to a level more appropriate for the life I want to live. I also have a strong interest in fitness, health, and nutrition, particularly in cooking and eating healthy, wholesome, natural foods.. and fitting dessert in there as well.

I have been a member of SparkPeople for over 4 years, and feel that I have a good grasp on what I need to do to make myself healthier. I generally do well sticking to my routine of exercise and healthy eating once I get it started, but I have problems getting back on track when life happens and that routine gets interrupted. I'm hoping to become more consistent even when things don't go as planned.

Hi Totchiko, I see you are in Japan. What charity do you recommend people donate to for people who want to send a donation to help the tsunami victims? I do not know if the Red Cross, Drs. without Borders or unicef is in Japan. Thank you and God Bless everyone in Japan. Sincerely, riva (rivaderchi) emoticon

I totally understand being behind on updates. I've only written one since the whole thing started. :)

Hokkaido is fine. As a general statement, Hokkaido wasn't impacted at all by this. I'm sure there were some areas that did get impacted, but every JET ALT is accounted for and I haven't heard of anything really happening here.

I've mostly heard about Tohoku and Tokyo as well. I hope things in Tokyo continue to be ok.

I'm so glad to hear you're okay. I hope your boy gets home soon, too. I saw some of the coverage from BBC. It looks awful in Sendai.

I hope you are okay! I heard about a huge earthquake, aftershocks, and tsunamis. :-(

Yeah -- you go to, say, Palm Desert and you get to choose from dozens of varieties of dates. You go to a grocery store in Reno and they don't even say what kind of dates they are, just "dates." ;)

Also, I'm a nutella-mandarin orange-whipped cream girl. MMMM CREPES.
