Is it real food?

One of my favorite activities, archery.

Thus far, the river of life has rolled, tumbled, grated, and run over the top of me- but unlike a literal river rock, it has not left me small, sleek, and polished. It has just left me rounder and hidden under a thick layer of protective silt. So I'm taking more control of the river. I'm taking charge and doing more to shape my own life and path, rather than feeling that my situation is completely dictated by other forces. I'm digging down through the mud and silt to find the me that was lost in the flood and tumult. I will both shape and be shaped by life, and find my true form and true self in doing so.


My goals have changed a bit recently. Daily goal is now to do some form of cardio or strength training every day for at least 30 minutes. More to the long term is to participate in at least one 5K run this summer and to lose 50 pounds by October. I am working on cutting out or severly restricting processed foods, sugars, and soda. I am getting plenty of water and trying to get 8 hours of sleep per night. I am working on losing my emotional baggage as well as the physical and it is working so much better than it has in the past. My goal is to be happy with me, inside and out. :)

My Goals:
My goal is to to be healthier and happier in my own skin.

My Program:
I'm trying to change my eating habits, cutting out refined sugars and processed foods and eating more fresh foods, fruit, and vegetables. I'm being active every day.

Personal Information:
I'm a wife, a mom, a musician and an artist. I love living in small town Idaho. I have 5 cats and a big ol' dog. I hate stinky cheeses, insufferable bores, and when people pop their gum or chew with their mouths open. I love crisp fall mornings, the smell of sagebrush after it rains, and Sunday afternoon naps with a kitty on my lap and The Victory Garden playing in the background.

Other Information:
I'm a traveller, a wanderer, a tree-huggin' dirt worshipper, a compulsive spender, and an emotional eater. I'm a singer, a guitar player, a percussionist and amature photographer. I love my family, I love my friends, and I love a cold beer at the end of a long, hot day.
