I am passionate about maintaining a healthy lifestyle...SO much depends on it! Eating "clean" and exercise are daily routines. I have finally learned the difference between losing weight and maintaining weight loss. I celebrate my anniversary of reaching my goal weight on June 15. The year was 2011. A big element of this success is being "authentic". Acknowledging my weight on a scale on a (somewhat) daily basis is a step toward accepting who I am and what all those mental health professionals tell us we must learn to do first: Love yourself. I know that struggle, the love-hate relationship with the scale, and have FINALLY come to realize and accept in my soul that "it's only a tool, it's only a number; it's not who I am; it's only one facet of the person I am." This definitely takes a re-wiring of the brain circuitry. Learning the skills to improve my emotional intelligence has been life-changing and the key to that genuine smile on my face! I hope to pass on these skills and encourage others in any way I am able. Thanks for visiting my page!

My Goals:
My primary goal is to be healthy. I've reached my goal weight, so now my challenge is to maintain it.


My Program:
My eating plan follows the Dukan diet - high protein and low carbs.
My typical exercise week:
Every day warm up with 30 min of treadmill or eliptical.
Monday: 60 min Dynamic (Art of Strength) strength training
Tuesday: 60 min Intensity (Crossfit) class
Wed: 60 min Dynamic (AOS) ST class
Thurs: Walk with friend and puppy dogs, hilly terrain about 70 min, then 60 min Intensity class
Fri: 60 min Intensity class (Challenge Day)
Weekends are for "playing": running with runner friends/family, or swabbing the deck of the houseboat, or swimming or skiing in the river, or hiking (looking for morel mushrooms), or chasing 2 yr old granddaughter :))... You get the picture!



Personal Information:


Other Information:
I am loving Crossfit, the challenge -- to my weight lifting abilities, to my stamina, and the camaraderie -- working out with my DH, my friends who are on similar level with me and those experienced crossfitters who inspire me!

    thanks for stopping by the blog! i think that whether we do whole 30, or beck or anything else, we wind up picking out the tools that work. i think it was bess who said that maintenance is just as much work as dieting, but you get to wear cuter clothes. and that seems to be about right!

    Beagles are really sweet but they are noisy all of their lives. My sister crates her dog at night with a drape to cut out light and the dog sleeps through the night. Puppies do grow up.

    Thanks, Maree! The last week and a half has kind of been a blur, but compared to others, we were very lucky. Really can't complain. Started working a Whole 30 and getting back to normal, slowly but surely.
