A Road to Self-Discovery
"I think that somehow, we learn who we really are and live with that decision." - Eleanor Roosevelt

Figuring out who you are and what makes you happy is a never-ending journey, and it all accumulates in the choices you make in life.

This blog is about my own journey to discover who I am based on choices I make to be a healthier, happier person. There will be talk of fitness and nutrition, charity and family, and hard subjects of my past and positive thinking towards the present and future. I am not formally educated in these things; I am only a woman who is learning and experiencing these things on her own as she grows into the person she wants to be.

So Who Am I?
I am a 24-year-old Japanese-American living in the beautiful state of Colorado with my gray tabby, Sunny. Rocket scientist by trade and runner, writer, reader, and gamer by night. Fit and healthy people can play video games for hours on end, too, I promise!

Flexi-pescetarian is how I would define my current diet. Only in Japan or when my parents cook for me will I willingly eat meat; otherwise, I'm full-out pescetarian. This is a recent lifestyle choice I have made for myself in an effort to be healthier, to help out the environment and animals, and to put a term to a diet I had already been barreling towards for a few months now.

As far as running goes, I'm currently training for the Denver Rock and Roll Marathon in October, and I am doing this with the American Cancer Society's DetermiNation. This will be my first marathon ever! Other physical activities I take part in are light weight training and toning, pilates, and yoga.

This blog is to help keep me accountable for my own health and fitness. I will make mistakes here and there, and I only hope that I will learn from them as I continue this journey to be someone I can be proud of.
