I'm a very driven and motivated type of person who is passionate about health, fitness, and life. I have completely changed my life through healthy eating and exercise and have lost over 80 lbs in the past 3 years. I am seeking someone who understands and values the level of commitment and hard work that it took to make that kind of change. Maybe you have also made that level of change in your life? I have a large fan base of people who find me inspiring. I try not to set limits in life because I realize that anything is possible. I enjoy doing anything that challenges me physically and I am currently training for the Tough Mudder in Lake Tahoe. I'm a very down to earth, adventurous, caring, positive, non-confrontational type of person. I'm a very loyal person who will go to the end of the earth for those that I care about, and I'm a realist who always tries to see the good in things/people.
I'm someone who realizes how short and precious life really is and I make an effort to enjoy the simple things every day. I recognize that the most important things in life are the ones that don't cost anything. I'm strong mentally and physically, so if that intimidates you then I may not be your match. I'm a multifaceted, simple yet complex creature, as I'm sure most women are; however, I can assure you I am not like any other woman you have met. I need to be stimulated in all aspects of the human existence. I can be seen and blend in perfectly in a 5 star setting or just as well in a local dive bar on the corner. I enjoy the finer things in life just as much as I like getting dirty and going muddin'. Originally a northern Michigan girl raised by a rough and tough dad and brothers, I have what you would call androgynous qualities. A girly girl on the outside but a tomboy at heart. With that being said I have a weakness for outdoorsy, 'do it yourself' kinda guys who love to be outdoors, hiking, camping, fishing, boating, etc.
I tend to be a bit of a conspiracy theorist, especially when it comes to the food/health care industries in this country. For instance, I believe that we are being poisoned by most products available to us. Which ends up leading to cancer, illness and consequently forces us to need the healthcare system, which then forces us to become dependent on the pharmaceutical industry. I think it's a cycle that can be prevented through education, and wiser choices in the products and ingredients that we consume. Even though I wouldn't consider myself a "hippie", I believe that they were on to this many years ago and I tend connect with their ideologies. I try to be as health and consumer conscious as I can, and I believe that all the little things add up and that my efforts do make a difference.
I'm seeking someone positive, full of life, and who enjoys living a healthy, active lifestyle. Someone who knows how to have fun and who doesn't let their work consume them. I realize that you have to work hard to play hard in life, but there's also a healthy balance. Also seeking someone willing to meet me half way in life who understands that a solid relationship should be based on open communication (even if the truth hurts), compromise, and friendship. I'm big on affection and love sharing that bond with the right person.
I like people who tend to think outside of the box in a non-ethnocentric kind of way. I am not a perfect person and do not expect perfection, just someone trying to be the best that they can every day. My ideal partner would be someone who encourages me to be a better person. Someone who challenges and inspires me. Someone with a good, kind heart who respects women and puts women first. Someone open minded, easy going, and adventurous, maybe even with a bit of a wild side. A sense of humor is always a plus too! The only thing really missing in my life is you!
I know I've written a book here, so if you've made it this far, kudos and I look forward to hearing from you!
