So I've decided I want to become a super hero and I've joined the Nerd Fitness Academy.

My mission: Save the World by Making Life Easier for Myself and Others.

Consequences of Leveling Up:

*Greater Section of Armor (2)
*Ability to Take on Bigger Adventures (3)
*Access to Better Shields (4)
*Charisma Points (5)
*Build a Guild (6)
*Save the Princess (7)

1) Walking long distances, climbing stairs, moving furniture, or carrying heavy items such as garden soil or ice melt.
2) Cute clothes!
3) Hiking and Travel.
4)Able to prevent health issues, minimize chronic pain, and feel confident to physically defend myself from danger.
5)More confidence interacting with others, feeling sexy and bold.
6)Increased Social activities, meet new people and increase influence.
7)Volunteering for causes requiring physical labor.

Basic Bio: I'm 35, female, and a geek by trade. (There's a whole squad of us) At work I rescue the citizenry against the evils of computer viruses, OS corruptions, and those pesky pop up ads. At home, I explore the vast expanse of cyberspace and put evildoers in their place via machines such as Steam, Wii U, PS3, Xbox One, and Kindle Fire.

My core passions include technology, travel, photography, nature, food and music.

Upon this journey I seek to expand my enjoyment of said passions, and of course, Save the princess.

My first step: Simply Walk to Mordor.

My Goals:
Save all the Princesses!!!

My Program:
Using the nutrition tracker consistently to monitor my actual eating habits.

Go for a walk every morning.

Personal Information:
I love to travel. I want to travel the U.S.A. Basically take one hell of a roadtrip and drive across the country and back. I want to sample good food, hike in diverse naturescapes and enjoy the variety of what makes each place unique.

I'm a photographer noob. I'm into nature photography, and cityscapes mostly.

I love music. I would love to travel to some of the different music festival across the country each summer. Currently I regularly attend Michfest each August, as well as 80/35 in July.

Food is a passion of mine, including all aspects of it. I enjoy learning about the history of food, about the marketing of it, about agricultural and production issues, and of course the preparing and eating of food. I've been a vegetarian for quite a long time now. I try to eat as local and organic as practical.

    Hi. I am in Texas, not Iowa but I know there is a walking club in your area if you are interested in participating in local events on a regular basis. I do similar walks every weekend. We are not "fund raising" clubs, we are for fun, fitness and fellowship. Our clubs are family oriented and most events are baby stroller, and pet friendly. Our object is to keep a record book and collect a stamp for each event that we do. I've done over a 1000 of the 10K events in Texas and in 46 other states. Visit my blogs and see my recent adventures. Here is the information on our local club:

    Club Name: Greater Des Moines Volkssport Assn.
    Address: PO Box 110
    City: Des Moines
    State: IA
    Zip: 50301-0110
    Contact: Deb Gaskins
    Phone: (515) 238-2486

    In 2011 there is going to be a walking convention in Iowa. here is the link for information:
