SparkPoints: 7,224

Fitness Minutes: 19,022

My Goals:
I don’t want to die early of
heart disease or diabetes

I want to be a good role model for my girls

I want to look good in my jeans, not like an old lady

I want to be in control my eating, not have it control me

I want to feel great and sleep well


My Program:
I am currently doing a whole life challenge (1/15 thru 3/15), cutting refined carbs, alcohol, cheese, etc. I feel great and plan to continue eating this way after the challenge, with some minor add back ins.

I am doing cross fit 3 or 4 times per week. I love my crossfit. I also do a dumbbell wod once per week in a city park. I feel a lot stronger and generally a lot younger in my body

I have followed the Beck Diet Solution in the past. She really helped me to realize that my thoughts about food weren't normal or healthy. Also weight watchers but I don't think that is good enough either.

Personal Information:
I knit, read, garden, cook, make cheese, and run here in the Pacific Northwest. I live in a smallish town with my husband, two teen girls, a brown dog, a black dog, a turkey, and a flock of chickens.

Hi Eileen, I'm not sure if you got an alert that I responded to your question about hang squat cleans on our CrossFit team page. I wanted to make sure you saw it!

This is a good video that shows the hang squat clean movement:

It's a fun one :)

Eileen, your message on the Beck check-in brought tears to my eyes. And they needed them. Thanks for the loving mom energy. It's giving me permission to be gentle with myself today, acknowledge how tired and stressed I've been and lower the bar a little bit. For today, if I just do no harm, it will be a good day.

You remind me of one of my favorite poems ~
The tender words we say to one another
are stored in the secret heart of heaven.

ULTRAMARATHONS! Wow. I'm in awe. I like the going to bed slightly hungry approach. Think it's making for better sleep I thank you for that! emoticon

Who knew you could bring your own food to the fair! emoticon That's excellent that your daughter showed chickens at the fair. That's my favorite part, the kids showing their animals.

I had half a whole wheat oat flour elephant ear, as planned, enjoyed it immensely after I had my lunch salad and ended the day within my calorie and macronutrient goals. A good day.
