The first question of the month:
1. Introduction to this Challenge and tell us a little about yourself!
Where to begin? Well, as you can probably tell from the title of my blog, my name is Lisa and I’m a vegetarian, but that certainly doesn’t describe everything about me! I’m 29 years old, living in a suburb of Boston. I’ve lived in this general area for the entirety of my life with the exception of the 4 years I spent in college.
I work as a software engineer, which means I write code and lots of it. It’s the type of job where you leave work at the end of the day and your brain hurts. Sometimes I feel like this is what I do all day (except in front of a computer screen):
Because I have a desk job that requires lots of sitting and a good deal of stress, it can be very hard to get in enough physical activity during the day. One of the things that motivated me to start blogging was this fact, and knowing that if I had a blogging audience to hold me accountable, I’d be more likely to eat better and work out more. So far, it’s been great motivation, though I’m still trying to lose about 20 pounds or so that I’ve put on during the past few years.
I became a vegetarian at the age of 16, and if you’re interested in why/where/how, check out this post:

Outside of work and the blog, my life includes living with my boyfriend of the past 3.5 years, reading, playing video games, kind of being a nerd and trying to make sure our home keeps running with our incredibly hectic schedules.
I love the idea of this challenge, though I will probably be running a few days behind because I’m getting a late start.
I hope you’re all having a great weekend!
