Hi all! My name is Julie. (I also use the name Jun-ri, my Buddhist name.) I am 45, divorced, have no kids and live at Lake Tahoe. I am a yoga and meditation teacher, Reiki Master and grant writer for a children's charity.

I have Fibromyalgia and, when I first started feeling pain and fatigue several years ago, I progressively stopped being active. As I became more sedentary, I gained weight, about 100 pounds of it. Not cool! I am here to re-learn how to nurture myself, become active again and meet some nice people along the way. As a yoga teacher, I do plenty for flexibility and strength. I need to find a way to consistently do some cardio!!!

I enjoy yoga and meditation, spiritual pursuits, outdoor activities, reading, writing, movies and vegetarian cooking.

Fitness Minutes: 6,311

My Goals:
My goals are to run a half-marathon on January 17, 2010, and to work consistently to increase my fitness through running, yoga, and strength training. I want to comfortably fit into a size 10.

My Program:
I am journaling and making appointments with myself to do fun activities that double as exercise, such as hiking and dancing and using my Gazelle in front of the TV. In December 2008, I hired a personal trainer who is putting together a strength training program for people with Fibromyalgia. I feel really great about it!

Personal Information:
While I have no human children, I do have a guinea pig, Roscoe, who is sooooo spoiled! I love him very, very much. I live vicariously through all my friends with children and grandchildren. I am a Buddhist and a vegan. I am active in animal rights and helping out those who are defenseless and those who need help (i.e. children and domestic violence victims). My Buddhist name is Jun-ri, so if you see me "sign" my name that way, it is because I want to that day! LOL

Other Information:
We have all we need inside of us!

I like the quote, "If it's to be, it's up to me."
