Who am I? I’m a socially liberal, pre-middle-age, overweight, mostly able-bodied white female from the American south living on the Kentucky-Tennessee border. I once thought I wanted to be a writer, but I got better. I work in a white collar profession, I take care of a household of four-legged mammals and a featherless, bearded biped, and I blog sometimes. Trust me, this is better than my days of bad teenage poetry.
I did physical therapy for frozen shoulder in 2011 and went on a lower carb, paleolithic-like diet on my doctor’s orders in February 2012. I’ve got a weak knee, a weak ankle, bad feet, and occasional abdominal trouble, probably from gallbladder surgery (my doctors’ best guess). Despite a smattering of minor injuries, I love the pursuit of fitness, with aspirations of completing Couch to 5K, progressing in The New Rules of Lifting for Women, and reducing my body fat to both decrease stress on my joints and reduce my snoring. I love to walk. I also love to throw my energy at charity fundraiser walks to benefit causes that have touched my life.
