Hi there. I am looking to enter my 30s happier and healthier than I entered my 20s. I am a massage therapist and run a vegan personal chef business. I recently became a new mother and need to find ways to keep my energy up.

I love, love, love to cook. I have a vegan personal chef business that I have been trying to get off the ground for a bit. If you want to check out my food blog, the website is: www.thewickedvegetarian.blogspot.com

I would be more than happy to share any of my recipes with you as well as exchange recipes with you. I am always looking for new things to create and am hoping this will be a great forum for that.

My partner and I are foster parents and have been blessed with a 6-month old baby named Jesse. We also have a 17-year old boy, Kenny. We have 3 dogs...so I essentially have 5 kids to take care of on a daily basis and I will tell you what...it's wonderfully exhausting. I enjoy every day of this life that I have been blessed with. Thank you God.

I enjoy hiking and being outdoors. My goal this spring and summer is to be outside at least 50% of the time. I have a bad habit of getting stuck inside and would love to kick that habit. Especially because I live in an awesomely beautiful state which I need to take full advantage of.

    Ok! Exercise suggestions (take this for what it's worth...b/c unwere recently injured make sure this stuff is ok..ok!? LOL)
    no gym required:
    Jumping rope 5 min at a time (rotate a few times btwn the other exercises)
    50 Squats
    Plank (hold for 2 min)
    Superwomans (hold for 2 min)
    Burpies...with or without the hop, u decide
    Forward walking lunges
    Kneeling standing (kneel on the floor and alternate which leg you get up with each time to a standing position) 12 each side

    I think you'll feel that! LOL
    The jumping rope is killer cardio, the rest is a pretty darn good body strengthening workout!

    Walking counts...esp if you're
    sweating! Yoga....depends on what kind :p ;)

    I'm debating about a third morning of spin...but a sub for the class....hmmm it takes a certain personality to get me spinning at 6am!!

    Oh yeah...I have put down the cheese!!!! But had two days of ice cream ooops! At least I'm spinning! LOL

    Hi Kara! Nice to "veggie" you too. I always say that to my fellow vegheads since I believe the less "meat" in the world... the better, LOL.

    Congrats on your vegan personal chef business. That's seriously awesome! Looks like you're one heckova chef from menu and photos on your website. Hopefully business is booming for you.

    My photography portfolio website, mirrorslap.com, is a work in progress. Haven't had any free time lately, but hope to get it online soon. Mirror slap is a term for the clicking sound a SLR camera makes when taking photos... in case you were wondering. Photography has become more than hobby in recent years and I feel blessed to live life with a dream job.

    You want to know my favorite music? That's a loaded question, LOL. Variety is the spice of life and I'm a spice whore. I suppose indie rock / pop / folk, 80s hip hop, bluegrass, industrial, new wave, classical, big beat and electronica is a start. Look me up on the site Last.FM under my username chronovisor.

    Looks like you're doing great here on SP. Keep it up the hard work!
