Greetings friends,


Jen of Arc's Origin Story is here: http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/user/43780-jen-of-arc/


I live on the Space Coast of Florida. I share an island with a few thousand other people and the Kennedy Space Center, where my husband nerds for a living.


My first 6-week challenge as a recruit is here: http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/71448-jen-of-arc-joins-the-battle/


I work as a part-time editor and writer and have the dubious distinction of holding two B.A.'s, in English and History, but no teaching degree, which makes me a questionable contributor to the realm, at the best of times. In an effort to level-up my karma, I'm about to become a first-time foster mom--like any day now. It is ten kinds of crazy, but true.


Running used to be my thing, but it just doesn't work for me like it used to. I found NF's articles about bodyweight training, so that's where I'm starting. I really should lose 50 pounds, but I'm starting with a goal of 10, by way of my three quests: to walk daily, eat only whole foods and no sugar until 5 p.m., with no snacks after dinner, and do a bodyweight workout three times a week.


I just want to live a healthier, longer life.


Joan of Arc is an inspiration to me because she held on to her beliefs no matter what. It may sound selfish to the old me (I'm a recovering Southern Baptist), but I want to believe that strongly in myself and my ability to accomplish my own goals and make my realm a better place for the next generation.


Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more!

One life is all we have, and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.
