I am WORTH the Investment!

I'm in it for the long haul. Less worried about the number on the scale than I am with the way my clothes fit....and the number of miles I can run. Less worried about body inches than body image....because if I don't love ME right here, right now, then losing 5 pounds won't be fixing what's really wrong in my life!

Fitness is important. A healthy diet is important. But most important to me is equilibrium. I need a sustainable lifestyle that doesn't leave me feeling deprived! ...

Fitness is important. A healthy diet is important. But most important to me is equilibrium. I need a sustainable lifestyle that doesn't leave me feeling deprived! While I really enjoy active outdoorswomaning - running, biking, hiking, kayaking, climbing, etc. - I also enjoy a glass of wine (or two) in the evenings, dining out with friends without feeling guilty over the calories...and let's face it, at certain times of the month, chocolate is necessary.

In September 2013, I quit smoking. Which was a HUGE personal achievement, and great for my overall health...but I gained weight that I'm still struggling to lose. New Year's Day 2014, when I stepped on the scale, I knew I needed to make some more changes for my health.

A little more about me: I spent about six years working for an environmental non-profit in Indiana before beginning my masters degree. I'm an amateur chef and a total foodie; I commute by bike as much as possible; I joined an outdoor club where I'm learning to rock climb and whitewater/sea/lake kayak; and I'm a little bit obsessed with taking pictures of my cat, Miss Kitty. It's not my fault. She's adorable :P
