I am Mai, and I love food. I'm the world's worst foodie because I don't discriminate against too many dishes. It used to not matter what or how much I ate. Sophomore year of college I gained my freshman 15 (delayed by a year but equally unwelcomed.) Luckily I lived with an active roommate who taught me the ropes of gym equipment at our state-of-the-art school gym. We would jog to the gym, have an awesome workout session, and jog back. We also cooked many healthy meals together, as well as reveled in some cheat days :) Fast forward a few years where we are no longer living together and I have lost a workout buddy and healthy eating partner. After a blur of several foodie outings, happy hours, potlucks, holidays, and any other type of event that involves food and no physical activity, I suddenly found myself at a shocking all-time high weight. I'm still in the healthy BMI range for my height/weight, but looking at myself in the mirror I could see that the weight gain was not only all fat but also a loss of muscle tone. Even though it was a wake up call for me, I was in a workout rut and had no motivation to do anything about it. I decided, on a whim, to start counting calories. I started with another website, but wasn't fully satisfied. The next day (I'm impatient) I found SparkPeople and was immediately hooked. I love the comprehensive coverage of being healthy including the nutrition aspect, the physical activity aspect, and most importantly, the emotional support aspect.

When it comes to physical activity, I get bored fairly easily. I'm the girl who goes to the gym with her cell phone (twitter checks necessary), magazine/book, ipod, water bottle, and towel. I know I look silly carrying all that around, but I get bored without it! My favorite activities are successful workout sessions at the gym, pilates, Pure Barre (so so much, I highly recommend to anyone thinking about it), spin, and trying new classes at the gym. Please leave a comment if you can recommend ways to stay motivated or new activities to try!
