Now I'm ready for anything!

Like so many desk jockeys, I let weight creep on after finishing college and getting married, and finally realized that my lack of fitness was keeping me from living the life I've envisioned for myself. I've lost 55 pounds since joining SP in February of 2011, and along the way, I've discovered that I actually enjoy running (always hated it in high school PE!), and also discovered the magic of kettlebells. Lately I'm dabbling in Crossfit as well. Now I have a program that keeps me fit for ...

My Goals:
Healthy eating, and fitness. I'm just above my desired maintenance range right now, so focusing on getting stronger and faster, and letting the weight thing take care of itself at this point.

My Program:
I mostly run outdoors in my neighborhood, and lift free weights 2x a week. Food-wise, I try to eat as little processed food as possible and tend towards Paleo and Perfect Health Diet, though I refuse to totally give up anything!

Personal Information:
I live in beautiful Boise, Idaho with my husband, 2 dogs, chickens, and a horse.

On MyFItnessPal, I have my Goal set to 25/25/50 carb/protein/fat. I agree, I don't want to worry about going into ketosis and since I want to start distance running again, I don't want to be too low!

And I think you make a good point about the Atkins thing - that they assumed you were just eating junk fats the whole time. People like to bash Paleo as being the "meat" diet but I remind them that I eat plenty of veggies all day! It is all just misinformation!

The cherry pork chops were seasoned with rosemary salt and pepper, braised in butter, then simmered in red wine, chicken broth, and a splash of balsamic vinegar (and the Cherries) for 10-15 minutes. So good! The green things were leeks but I think you could leave them out

Happy New Year!!! Sounds like you've started the new year with some great fitness-feats!!!

Thank you for reading and commenting on my blog - I agree with you on my calorie intake. Generally, 1400 calories per day is right on for me, but when training for the longer races (like Robie Creek) I have to up my calories a bit.

Thanks also for your friendship in SparkPeople - I wouldn't be anywhere near this healthy if it weren't for my Spark buddies :)
