You get out what you put in!!

UPDATE - MARCH 2014
YES!! I have decided to revive my Sparkpage after being MIA for probably over a year. However, my schedule is very very demanding, so I may not be able to answer much on here, or check out everyone else's blogs, or reply when I get messages. I hope I can still be an inspiration & encouragement to others....

A little about myself:
I've been a long-time runner, but always struggled with my weight. It took me a long time to realize that absolute importance of nutrition. After having my twins in 2008, I found myself at my highest weight ever.... 175 lbs. It was time for an overhaul. I started following the Maker's Diet (which is not really a diet at all, but a clean, healthy way of life), & slowly started running again. It was a long haul, but the weight DID come off. I still struggle with not letting bad habits creep back in, but I KEEP WORKING AT IT!

Since then, I also have started doing long distance races. I ran my first HM in 2009, & my first marathon in 2011. I love running events, & love the motivation it gives me to challenge myself to new distances & improving my times.

MY DIET ROCKS!! I follow the diet philosophies of Sally Fallon and Jordan Rubin (Maker's Diet). I believe in eating a holistic, natural diet, aimed at being healthy, not losing weight. I eat a high-protein diet with lots of vegetables and fruits and only 100% whole grains, mostly organic stuff, and as free from chemical additives and flavor enhancers as possible... well you get the picture! LOVE IT!

YES GIRL YES! AWESOME!

I'm meeting hubby in an hour at the gym but I think I'm going to go get an early start since his lifting always takes little time compared to my run + ST... I'm off to get ready... pyramids and HIIT today if I can get through it all!

Strength gains are sure to come our way ~ March Madness!
