I love fitness and healthy eating, it only took me a decade to remember. I was a over weight child, very shy and lacking any sort of self esteem. When I grew into a teenager I was sick of the ridicule from my peers, but I am prone to internalizing my frustration and anger. I fought back, however once again my enemy was myself and I developed an eating disorder; well I had a eating disorder all along but I decided to do it in reverse and instead of over eating I stopped eating . I dropped 30 lbs in about 2 months and was so happy with my success I ate less and less and lost more and more. I was skinny and angry and addicted to the attention and small sizes I was fitting in to. Well this behavior went on for 2 or 3 year, but along the way to an early grave I discovered fitness and not being a completely stupid I realized to keep up with my new found passion I needed to fuel my body. I started reading about nutrition and found my new obsession. I was very healthy, working out, snowboarding, scuba diving, hiking, enjoying the spoils of the war I had just battled. However my early twenties proved to be my regression point. Like some tend to do I sunk back into a depression, not happy with my body any more I developed Bulimia, which lead to over eating junk food, alcoholism, and no longer exercising. I was trapped in this bog of misery for about 4 years, I was still on occasion active but I was not happy and ate every thing fried and washed it down with a gallon of beer.
Once again I was on the bottom but being the scrapper I am with myself I knew I needed to do something, I was not going down like this! Once again I told myself that fitness was my true passion and I needed to make the changes to keep it in my life! I started eating better, not perfect but better. I started drinking less, I started exercising more.
Not until I broke the chains from my addictions could I see clearly. I realized that there is so much more to life then a flavor, a buzz, a comment. I still struggle daily with a tendency to beat myself up, I struggle daily to love how far I have come. I do love my life now, my family keeps me accountable and proud. I hope to never return to my past. Not complete but I have bedtime stories to read.
I want to get back to my usual level of activity and include my daughter & son in it.
I am trying to get at least an hour of cardio in 5 days a week, and weight training three days a week. I would also like to eat whole foods and eliminate wheat and dairy.
I was born in Alberta Canada and then moved around the states quite a bit until my parents got divorced. My mom, myself and my sister stayed in Colorado, and my dad went to Miami. So I have spent most of my life between the two places.
I am an outdoor girl, all my favorite memories are from the mountains, I love to hike, snowboard snowshoe, and mountain bike.
