Hi! My name is Stephanie. I’m a college professor, a poet, a cat-mama, a friend, a girlfriend, a daughter, a sister, and so much more. This is what I looked like at the end of the 2010-2011 academic year, when I had lost nearly all of my excess weight (trust me–it was a lot. You don’t need to see photographic evidence of this). I kept it off for a while, but then life rolled in–more like snowballed in! I gained a bit of weight. Join me as I navigate the cold, choppy waters of getting into Crossfit, learning to run all over again and getting back into running shape, and losing the little bit of pudge that I have gained in the meantime!
