Hi. I'm Kael and I do "stuff". I tend to defy labels, which makes it hard to describe myself on web pages like this.

I am a single mom of a child with autism putting myself through college. I get slightly neurotic about school work--learning to deal with stress better is part of my game plan for getting healthy. I like to dance and sing--and I am pretty much known for being slightly weird. I am honest and upfront about things--sometimes to the point of being tactless.

My interests are broad, and when something catches my fancy I will be VERY into it, until I am suddenly not anymore. I love to learn new things, and I value friends that make me question my own assumptions. I can have a quick temper. I have learned to avoid playing video games around my child due to my unfortunate habit of using naughty words when I die (which is often). I read constantly. Really. I read the toilet paper wrapper if there is nothing else. I go nowhere without a book and a handheld game system.

Yes I am a geek.

Yes that is probably why I am single.

Well that and the fact that I am horribly shy.

I just hit the reset button after a major backslide in weight. As it I just gained back all that I had lost. I blame moving into a new place, ass tons of stress, depression, and my own lack of motivation to watch what I am doing.

I have a thyroid issue, which is making it much harder for me to shake the weight. I am also now vegetarian, due to my body rejecting meat when I try to eat it. I am trying to keep sight of my goals to get healthy and feel better about myself, even if the weight never comes off.


If you want to know anything else just ask.

Fitness Minutes: 15,657

My Goals:
I would like to get back to the weight I was before I quit smoking and went back to school. I deal with a lot of stress and some depression and I know that taking good care of my body helps with those issues. I mostly want to feel good about my body and how I look.

My Program:
Watching portions. Making sure I get some kind of exercise every day--even if that means walking around the mall for an hour. Concentrating on what I am eating rather than what I am not eating.

Personal Information:
I live in Akron OH and go to a doctoral program at the University of Akron.

Other Information:
I read. A lot. Terry Pratchet and Neil Gaiman. Lovecraft. Anything that has print. In a pinch cereal boxes. I am totally envious of Neil Gaiman's wife.

Writers are sexy.
