Hi, I'm Lauren. I want to be strong, I want to be healthy, I want to be vibrant!

Summer 2013 is the summer of Challenges!! June is a squat challenge and an abs challenge. In the middle of June I will start the 100 pushups challenge for Summer of the Beast Done Girls Challenge. We'll see about June and July :)

I am working towards my PhD, and I currently live in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Awful weather, but I get to bike everywhere!! Living in a foreign country ...

I am working towards my PhD, and I currently live in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Awful weather, but I get to bike everywhere!! Living in a foreign country brings many challenges, and staying healthy is certainly one of them. I am trying to tailor my fitness and eating so I can enjoy this amazing city, and meet my Spark goals. I approach every day and every challenge here with a smile.

I love cooking, and food in general. I need to change my relationship with food so that I enjoy it, but not turn it for comfort. I am a vegetarian, and have been most of my life.

I am a runner. I am incredibly slow. But 3 times a week, I put on my shoes and pound the pavement. I am totally becoming addicted to runner's high/post-workout endorphins. I never thought the day would come :) I have run two races: 8KM Istanbul, November 2012 and 10KM The Hague, Netherlands March 2013.
