Update: Just got my jaw operated on so I everything is up in the air at the moment. No weight lifting for a month, no chewing, no lowering my head below my heart (even for sleeping). Figured I'll use this as a fresh start!

I'm kinda extreme about things, and I love that. I love pushing myself. I also love fashion. I love learning and discovering.

My favorite thing I've ever done (other than get married) was running the Austin Marathon in 2007 (~180 lbs). Second favorite was the MS150 I biked in 2009 (~195 lbs). But since then I've focused on other things more educational and now I can barely run a quarter mile and my weight is up to 220 (plus some change).

I also can't fit into cute work outfits, and I don't feel very sexy any more. So yeah, my goal is to lose weight and get in shape to a) wear cute clothes, b) feel good about physical myself, c) run the 2014 Austin Marathon (and the Austin Distance Challenge), and d) have energy to keep up with my busy life.

Waking up at 6AM every day to work and to allow time for breakfast to get me home in time for a good workout after work. Also to keep my body on a regular schedule.
