What’s Healthefficiency?

In engineering, efficiency is a measure of how effective a process is; the concept is maximum output from minimum input. And sometimes when you’re an adult with all of this adulthood stuff to deal with, you really don’t have much more than the minimum input to give. There are days you can’t even find a half hour to spend on the treadmill. There are days you can’t find the energy to even think about the gym. I understand.


This is my journal, to track my concentrated efforts to get the healthiest bit out of every spare minute I have.


I’m a 30-year-old lady. I’m a chemical engineer with a full-time, 40hr/week, 10hr/day job who goes to grad school part-time. I’m a runner with asthma and bad ankles who has done 5Ks and a half marathon. I’m a moderate hypoglycemic with a chronic vitamin deficiency no matter how I eat (it’s due to blood chemistry) trying to improve her diet, who loves to cook but can get too exhausted to do so. I’m a strength-training chick who pits NROL4W and Bodyrock against a pinched nerve and tight muscles in my neck/shoulders. I’m a yoga practitioner who never finds time to practice. I’m trying to drop this belly and pick up some muscle while I keep racing. I also love beer.


As you can see, I’m known for doing too much.

  1. Hi! My name is Sue, and I’m from SlimKicker, a diet/fitness app and online website. I saw your blog today and it captured my interest!

    I’m contacting you b/c we’re about to release a fitness tracker (similar to FitBit) early next year, and are looking for bloggers who would be interested in getting 1 for free to review when it is out (negative or positive).

    Would you be interested in doing this? You can email me at: sue (at) slimkicker (com) with ‘Review’ in the email heading if you are.

    Just to let you know, our online website SlimKicker basically turns your diet/fitness goals into a level-up RPG game. The tracker will work with the website, and allow people to track calories burned and number of steps they walk automatically. The more they exercise, the more points they rack up! That’s basically how it will work.

    Anyway, hope to hear back either way…

    – Sue
