Confessions of a former "skinny" girl

My goal is to be healthy, and have a healthy relationship with food. I've been on both ends - overeating and undereating.

I'm hypoglycemic, so eating small meals throughout the day works best for me, as well as a lower carb intake. I aim for 40% carbs, 30% protein and 30% fat.

I started weight lifting in February 2012, and I absolutely love it! I'm constantly surprised at how strong I'm getting and the improvements I see each week.

Does your dentist know that you grind your teeth in your sleep? You may want to ask your dentist about the mouthguard, because that made a lot of difference in pain management for TMJ for my husband. When he didn't wear it and ground his teeth at night that's when he noticed a flare up the next day. I think the guard cost about $500. I hope that helps, I know it's painful!

Thanks for the comment on my blog and the friend add! That's so fantastic that you've been able to transition from the mindset of 'weight' to 'strength'! From my swimming, I can already feel my arms and shoulder getting stronger, and it feels fantastic!

Hi! I read your blog this morning about saving the playground - WTG! Whatever the ultimate reason the fire went out, you did YOUR part, and so many people don't.

Hope those fires go away soon. We are very dry here in East Tennessee too.

Blessings to you today!
