Welcome to my little corner of blogworld. I started this blog in 2009, and like most of my relationships the intensity and waxeof our interactions has waxed and waned, but unlike most of my relationships we are still together 😉
In 2009 I was mostly writing about becoming a Scientist (my dsicliplines are child development, behavioral genetics, and nutritional epidemiology) and moving to America. Then, for the first time ever, in my 28th year of life, I became a fitness enthusiast and started to also write about eschewing carbs, completing (very) heavy lifting and training for half marathons and tough mudders.
In 2012 I fell pregnant with my little boy and while I kept my job going, my blog reflected the swapping of training for diapers, bottles and endless readings of ‘I Want my Hat Back’.
In 2014 I moved all my work writings over to a separate spot to help keep my professional image and personal life separate. And now, I am waiting to see what form this blog will take. I no longer feel like a deer in headlights when it comes to being a Mum, but equally, my time and enthusiasm for intense training has waned. I can’t travel as much, and so I epxect this blog will just be about life… the life of your average 32-year old ex-pat Scientist, adjusting to life as a Mom in Texas (of all places) with her fairly new, redneck husband.
