My Goals:
Refocussing on a new goal now. To be stronger.

Getting there. Deadlifting 80kg, squatting 50kg now.

Keeping to about 1500 calories or thereabouts, making sure I get at least 100g protein a day. Add protein shake after workout on ST days.

Still getting my 10,000 steps each day minimum.


Personal Information:
Scottish, living in Norway. Sharing my house with Mark, my "other half" for the last 13 years or so, and our dog Kyle.
Sharing my garden with our chickens, and gold fish in the garden ponds.

Other Information:
Used to grow all my own veggies, in Life Before Norway. It's too hard here, even with a couple of little greenhouses. Got some strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrants...

Outside of my "good life" aspirations, I'm a Geek Girl. Apple not Droid. A Rationalist, with Buddhist leanings and a desire to be more mindful. But compelled to ask Why? to everything.
