GO BLUE!

Hi! I am a theoretical mathematician who just graduated from the Ph.D. program at the University of Michigan and followed my boyfriend (also an alum of the same program) to St. Louis. I am still getting used to the city while trying to define a career path outside of academia (read: still looking for employment!).

Hi! I am a theoretical mathematician who just graduated from the Ph.D. program at the University of Michigan and followed my boyfriend (also an alum of the same program) to St. Louis. I am still getting used to the city while trying to define a career path outside of academia (read: still looking for employment!).

SP is helping me to lead a healthy(-ish) lifestyle while making new friends with like-minded goals. :) This includes preparing more meals from scratch and making sure I am getting enough vitamins and nutrients from food sources, rather than a multivitamin. I am also a recreational runner (usually only short distances of 1-3 miles, 3-5x per week).

I have an appreciation for almost all kinds of food (fast food and healthy food alike) and find that moderation works for me. The only foods I tend to avoid are ones that contain unnatural sources of trans fats (partially hydrogenated oils), but I would like to eat more fresh fruits & veggies and less meat while keeping my daily protein intake above 60 grams.

Average intake: 1700-1925 cal/day (less active) or 2000-2200 cal/day (more active)
