I’m back to living in the US! and if I ever remembered to update this thing, you would have known that over a year ago…. but check this out: living in Paris made me realize that I want to go into Public Health and Nutrition. I have a new career path so to speak, and I’m way healthier than I have ever been.
I’m about 90% vegan, but I’m working on going full throttle now that I’m graduated and living on my own. I am beginning to love running, and I get antsy if I can’t work out in some capacity.
Recently (as of summer of ‘12) I have lost a bit of weight due to the stress of work and weird eating hours. I’m definitely not complaining cause I’ve been trying to lose about 10lbs for several years now and I have hitherto found it realllllll difficult.
For the next year (sept 12-june 13), I’m working with a volunteer group called City Year. I’ll be living on $1,000 a month plus about $200 in food stamps so I’ll be tight on money and I might not be able to afford a gym. But fear not! I plan on becoming a more regular runner and a more regular racer as well. So far, I’m signed up for the Color Run in August ‘12 and I believe I’m doing another 5K in Sept ‘12.
Let’s do this thing.
CW: 146-148.5 (67.5kg)
SW: 154 (70kg)
HW: 160 (72.7kg)
LW: 121 (highschool- ED)
153 152 151 150 149 148 147 146 145 144 143 142 141 140 139 138 137 136 135 134 133 132 131 130
I’m not really worrying too much about weight at the moment. While it would be great to be 130lbs again, I think I’ll take strength and a great physical appearance over a number on the scale. I’ve been slowly transitioning to vegan for the past month and its definitely been a struggle due to my gluten intolerance, but I’m committed to make it work. I foresee things getting much easier once I move out of my current living situation (aka living with 8 other girls and only 1 fridge) and into my senior year housing (me and 3 other girls and 1 fridge, a much better ratio).
I am working on my strength and fitness through weight lifting and running, my flexibility and sound-mindness through yoga, and my attitude through rugby. I’m learning quite a bit.
