"Commitment isn't about being perfect, always following through, or never going astray. Commitment means that when you (inevitably) stumble or get off track, you pick yourself up, find your bearings, and carry on in the most meaningful direction possible." -- Russ Harris
I don't remember where I came across that quote, frankly -- nor do I even know who Russ Harris is. Still, I think it pretty well sums up my life's quest for health. I've never been a healthy girl, not even when I was thin. But I still can be healthy -- thick or thin. I just have to continue being committed to myself. That's what I'm doing here on Spark. I am reaffirming and building that commitment.
To enjoy life to the fullest as a healthier, fitter, wiser me.
1. Stress less, live more.
2. Treat my body with the respect and love I deserve -- even if I struggle to believe I deserve those things.
3. Move, move, move!
4. Drink enough water I'll float in the bathtub.
5. Find a healthy diet I can adhere to easily.
I am a biologist and PhD student. I love all science & research, reading classic literature, photography, writing short stories and poems, hiking, gardening, crocheting and jewelry making, and last, but not least, spending time with my puppy, kitten, and significant other.

Not sure how I missed your kind-of recent blog, but I was so glad to see it when I creeped on your page! You don't come up much in my feed lately so I keep hoping you're around. How are things coming along with your meals/calories? I'm overhauling my diet and finding it time-consuming between the prep, chewing, & clean-up! On the plus side, it's a good time for me to do it since I'm not working and have pretty much nothing else to do. Maybe by the time I go back to work I'll be more efficient. Just starting to walk now without a limp, so I've finally got a green light for some time in the gym - starting out with only a few minutes and building up. Miss you & hope you're good!!
