Hi! I'm Hilary, 24, owner of Nerdy Little Secret, a geeky craft business catered to the nerd hidden inside everyone. I live in a small city in Maine, right by the water. I have two cats, Neville and Jazmine.
I love cats, Johnny Depp movies, and chocolate. I'm trying to find a way to make myself healthier despite some pesky (and painful) nerve damage in my right foot after a botched bunion surgery. My main goal isn't really weight loss, it's more about strength. I want to be able to do things I can't do now. The weight loss is a nice side-effect, though.
I have terrible self-confidence and I'm really shy, but I try to force myself past that and be friendly. I really do love people, but I'm terrible at meeting them. I rarely message people or initiate contact, but I will totally message you back if you do it first. I try to pretend I'm confident and outgoing to trick myself into thinking I really am, and sometimes it works.
I do know I'm awesome, though. I've been through a lot of things over the past few years that I never thought would happen to me, and I survived. The way I see it, if I can survive having my apartment being robbed, being homeless multiple times, living in a van with two other adults and a cat, and the other things I've been through, I can do pretty much anything.
I'm also a huge wrestling nerd. One of my biggest dreams is to be a writer for WWE. I used to despise wrestling until I started watching last September, and now I'm obsessed. Some of my favorite wrestlers (CM Punk, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Sheamus) are my biggest inspirations.
Back under 200 pounds. Getting my strength back up. Feeling healthy. Being strong.
Trying to be more conscious of what I eat and how it affects me. Also focusing on making myself be active every day and becoming stronger and healthier.

I hope you don't mind, I added you as a Spark Friend.
My husband and I love "Nerdy things" My new baby has a star wars nursery and I had a star wars themed wedding- We bought tons of stuff from Etsy!
I hope you are doing well on your healthy lifestyle journey- Myself my goal is to shed my pregnancy weight from having another baby Boy in March, and to get my body healthy and in better conditioning.
I hope we can cheer each other on!

Thank you for your comment on my blog of diet tips I am glad you found them helpful. I read your blog and it sounds like you are doing a good job on getting healthy. I also have nerve problems in my feet it is a real bummer but has not kept me from doing my daily walks even with shooting pains now and then. I just take a minute to get over it and keep going.

Hello. I don't know how/why you found me, maybe the Maine connection. I also have nerve damage, mine in my hand. I'm seeing amazing progress with the help of a traditional acupuncturist. Have you tried that?
