|Occupation||I work. Legally.|
|Location||Joliet, IL, United States|
|Introduction||I am a former athlete trapped in a fat person’s body. Sounds harsh don’t it? Well, the reality is medically I am considered obese with a BF% exceeding 32% (which I am sure a good 7% is in the ta-tas alone). It’s the truth and the truth hurts sometimes. In college, my BF% was considered “average”, however in the 17 yrs since “retirement” I had gained up to 65 pounds. Thankfully, I can say of that I have lost approx. 20 # but my journey really has only begun. My journey is about getting healthy, reaching my healthy number and getting more fit. Even though I am considered “obese”, I don’t wear plus size clothing. I am very active- I ran the Chicago Marathon in 2011 and I work out a lot. I dedicate a good portion of my weekly workouts to the practice of yoga. I juggle a full time career, family life and various activities with 2 (large) dogs. I originally started this blog in 2011 as a way to track my training for the marathon and now that that has come and gone, on to something new! Time to catalog my journey.|
|Interests||Cooking, swimming, running, my family, my dogs (my babies) and life in general.|
If you were a pirate, how would you avoid laughing when saying 'poop deck'?
Hmmm…I wouldn’t. In fact, I would say it as often as I could. Poop deck! Poop deck! Poop deck! Poop deck! Poop deck! Crying yet?
