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.

I'm Sure you heard about that Crossfitters freak accident the other day didn't you? Google it if you haven't.... I feel so sad for that guy.

Anyway I just read your comment on my feed and I don't want to detour you from it by bringing that up, haha.

I still think crossfit is awesome and if anyone could do it YOU COULD! Just be careful. I think what makes it scary is knowing its all about the pushing yourself, you know. I don't know if I could hang yet, haha. I envy the people that can. :)

So you got to try it. What will it hurt right? Just don't let it expire!

Dude I really wanted to take crossfit classes but they seem so hard core that they kind of scare me. You totally have to plan on using your groupon so you can tell me all about it. Thanks for reading my blog too. emoticon
I'm really excited to rock this new membership! 2014 is going to be awesome.

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!
