A Healthier Me

I want to have a healthier heart, a toned body and to be in the best shape of my life. My goal is not only weight loss, but to keep maintaining this as a lifestyle. So far, so good!

I fractured my ankle Nov. 2010, and learned during the time I was in crutches that I previously took walking/running and fitness for granted. I now have a new outlook on life.

I fractured my ankle Nov. 2010, and learned during the time I was in crutches that I previously took walking/running and fitness for granted. I now have a new outlook on life.

I love the outdoors. I don't want to ever stop getting outside on my two feet and want to keep enjoying the scenery.

I've recently gotten into regular strength training, 3 days/week, and, of all things, meditation. I've found this to be very helpful with learning to focus my attention on what's important.

I also love to hike, bike, and run when I get the chance to.

I want to run a marathon someday, too! One day at a time, I'll be closer to that goal.

My Program:
Doing fun activities like hiking in the local hills, bicycling, running, swimming, hilly neighborhood walks. Weight training 3 times/week.

Being mindful of what I eat (portion size, learning to eat slower, paying attention to balancing meals) every day.

For a while now, I eat clean, meaning I focus upon eating 'real' food and I cook for myself most of the time. Mostly veggies and lean protein, some fruit and whole grains. No refined sugar. Food with absolutely none or minimal processing.

I've been working on splitting up my meals so that I eat smaller portions every 3 hrs or so, to boost my metabolism.

Personal Information:
Born and raised in Southern California.
I work in the movie industry as a visual effects digital artist.

I love to cook delicious healthy meals!

Other Information:
Some things about me:

*Happily married to a man I adore and look forward to growing old with.

*I LOVE good people, music, art, cooking, bettering myself spiritually, hiking, camping, travel/exploring, ancient civilizations, cafes and wineries. Plus lots more!

*I work long hours but love what I do; I think that it is very important to pursue your dreams.
