currently living in Pittsburgh, PA.
late 30s and loving it!
past training and eating: went from being a meat eater to vegetarianism in college and well into my early thirties;
really fell off of it and went back to meat eating (or more eating more plant based and occasionally eating some meat)
stopped eating meat permanently a year or so ago. i'm back to vegetarianism but i think i'm quite ready to and mature enough to move right into veganism (but have been educating myself and making sure i'm making this change as well as I can).
training wise: was a competitive runner all through college and into my mid thirties (college: 800m and 1500m; post college road racing) but stopped when I was getting injured way too often (and I realized I wasn't enjoying running anymore)...
as for current training, i've started doing Kettlebell workouts and body weight exercises, but I do want to work out with barbells, etc.
Immediate goals: lost fat and pack on slabs of muscle.
So I guess that's it. (oh yeah, i'm a writer though I work in the legal field and I just finished a draft of my first full length original tv pilot! weeeeeeeeeeeeee!
oh anyone here currently living in or from Pittsburgh? email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
I've felt pretty weird going to some of the vegan/vegetarian meetups mainly because the people who come to these here, though very nice, don't share similar workout loves and goals etc. that I have (or am finding)....
it would be good to meet folk who post here in the Pittsburgh area.
