In short, I am a poet, horror aficionado, vegan & on moonlit nights, you can reckon I'll be scrying mists in my subterranean bower, draped full in hood & veil.

Many alchemical mysteries hath led me here. Once I was but a lumpen mass of melancholy, though roiling deeps didst churn therein.

Then I took my life into my hands. I said "Each day I shall work myself upon the Numen's lathe. My form is ever nearing."

I lost nearly 60 pounds in a strange fit of motivation that lasted about two years, off and on. At my peak, I was running 2.5 miles each morning and doing additional strength-building exercises in the afternoon.

Now, I am far from that place. I have gained the weight back and more, lost my endurance and strength, and find myself pressed for time between my work, projects, and my dog--and I have lost faith in myself.

Nevertheless, everything begins today. Now.

My Program:
I'm a vegan and I adore fresh, earth-delivered foods, which translates to a diet that consists heavily of vegetables, whole grains, fruits, etc, but—dammit—my portion control tends to go awry. Also, I am by no means austere in my eating, and indulge often in luscious breads and baked treats. I *try*, however, to eat 1200-1400 calories per day.

In addition to being conscious of my intake, I run for 30 minutes each morning in the neighborhood cemetery, and by night I submit to the torture of the 30-day-shred.
