Hi! My name is Amanda. Thanks for stopping by my page! I am a first grade teacher and the cheerleading coach for my district. I try to stay very active, but struggle with my eating habits. I have really yo-yoed up and down on my weight. I lose weight, then I gain it back.

I ran my first half marathon November 20, 2011 and finished in 2:30:01!!! I am a runner. Never in my life did I think I would change my gymnast power muscles into endurance muscles. I LOVE running and it is my definite out from everything. I am now training for my first ever MARATHON in November 2012!

Now it is time to start balancing this food thing! I am in limbo with the eating healthy/eating poorly cycle. I am trying my hardest to get in a healthy habit. I have started the Paleo lifestyle and I hope this helps me to balance things out. Through my journey I have learned that my body doesn't process grains or starches well at all, so the Paleo lifestyle seems to be a good match.

Here are my current goals and reward system I have come up with!

155 - Pedicure (July 29)
150 - 30 min relax in bath with glass of red wine (Aug 19)
145 – 2 New shirts (Sept 9)
143 – New Belly Button Ring
140 – 2 pairs of jeans (I better need them after losing 17 lbs) (Oct 14)
139 – Sexy date with hubby
138 – Full spa pedicure with mom
137 – Sperry’s
136 – New sexy dress
135 – Full body massage! Reached goal!! (Hope to be here by Marathon in November) (November 18)

    thats such a subjective answer. everyone's body can handle body fat so differently. for me, I was 21% before i began my competition diet and I felt very comfortable there, maybe a little on the squishy side since it was at the end of football (aka beer drinking) season. i had my bf% measured in a bod pod. but some women are very healthy maintaining 16%. I think I look emaciated when I get that low. just google healthy body fat ranges. but its still one of those numbers that we get fixated on. just stick with the mirror girl!

    trust you have gone well with your celebrations...
    look forward to reading your blog.....
    Have looked through the Paleo Diet and am gutted that the man says NO beans....
    Thats my protien...don't eat meat....
    so going to give it a go anyway....will just eath the beans instead of the meat which makes it pretty much the Eat to Live way of eating....
    Am proud of your achievement this week....
