Reclaiming myself....

I joined SP in 2008, but started really USING SP in late Jan/early Feb 2009. Between Jan 2009-2010 I lost 60 pounds, and held most of that weight off for 2 years. I then injured my shoulder and deal w/ chronic pain. Lately it's getting to me and I've regained 25#. It stops there. My jeans I was wearing around my wedding are no longer tight - they don't fit.

I'm going to continue to eat mindfully, workout in spite of pain and manage pain (that's what the docs tell me to do), ...

I'm going to continue to eat mindfully, workout in spite of pain and manage pain (that's what the docs tell me to do), and get back to 160.

Mid-May 2014 - I saw a sign for a newly opened CrossFit box in town, the same day I told my husband something needs to change because what I was doing wasn't working anymore despite trying! Joined the next day.....the rest is current history.

I like the idea of joining a gym! I liked going before but went with the hubs and his friends. It was supposed to be "time spent together" but it never felt relaxing or fun. I am lightyears behind him in fitness so I felt out of place. Having my own gym sounds fun but its not in the funds right now :( There used to be a gym nearby that had $3 Zumba classes. Maybe I should look them up again!

Sounds like a good plan! I would definitely tell you to get Practical Paleo. It is half informational booklet, half cookbook (complete with several meal plans depending on your goals/state of health). It provides just enough about how foods affect your health but its not all "Grains are evil" or anything :) The recipes are also amazing and the meal plans are so easy to follow (and each one is for 30 days). Definitely my favorite Paleo book! Let me know if you have questions or anything!!
