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 ...

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.

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!

I've been trying to wean myself off those processed foods but it's a lot harder than I thought it'd be. You must have amazing willpower.

Glad to be your Spark Friend and thanks for reading and commenting on my blogs. Sounds like you're living an active and healthy lifestyle. I'll let you know as I decide on my races this year. Thus far I'm thinking of the Liberty Lake 8-mile run in May - east of Spokane, a beautiful run through woods, hills, waterfalls - and the Moscow Mountain Madness in Sept. outside of Moscow, Idaho. But I'm looking to try a new half marathon somewhere in the region that isn't too big and doesn't cost a ton. What runs do you like in your area?

Tomorrow?! Wow that is soon. I'm just not ready for that because I simply don't have enough groceries in my house. LoL. I plan on spending lots of time tomorrow looking through "It Starts With Food" and meal planning though! From what I read on the group, that is about where everyone else is at??? I have some friends doing Whole30 in January too! I'll see how well I do tomorrow and report back! :)

Thank-you for your kind comment on my blog. I really appreciate it. I've always wanted to go to London/Dublin but have been too afraid. This is the furthest I have got so far, looking through course catalogs. I'm very anxious about the possibilities.
I have thought about the low-carb approach. We have a lot of bread like foods at the house and I go nuts over it. Does it get easier to not eat them with time and did you have to wean yourself off them or did you go cold turkey, if you don't mind me asking?
