I am passionate about maintaining a healthy lifestyle...SO much depends on it! Eating "clean" and exercise are daily routines. I have finally learned the difference between losing weight and maintaining weight loss. I celebrate my anniversary of reaching my goal weight on June 15. The year was 2011. A big element of this success is being "authentic". Acknowledging my weight on a scale on a (somewhat) daily basis is a step toward accepting who I am and what all those mental health professionals tell us we must learn to do first: Love yourself. I know that struggle, the love-hate relationship with the scale, and have FINALLY come to realize and accept in my soul that "it's only a tool, it's only a number; it's not who I am; it's only one facet of the person I am." This definitely takes a re-wiring of the brain circuitry. Learning the skills to improve my emotional intelligence has been life-changing and the key to that genuine smile on my face! I hope to pass on these skills and encourage others in any way I am able. Thanks for visiting my page!

My Goals:
My primary goal is to be healthy. I've reached my goal weight, so now my challenge is to maintain it.


My Program:
My eating plan follows the Dukan diet - high protein and low carbs.
My typical exercise week:
Every day warm up with 30 min of treadmill or eliptical.
Monday: 60 min Dynamic (Art of Strength) strength training
Tuesday: 60 min Intensity (Crossfit) class
Wed: 60 min Dynamic (AOS) ST class
Thurs: Walk with friend and puppy dogs, hilly terrain about 70 min, then 60 min Intensity class
Fri: 60 min Intensity class (Challenge Day)
Weekends are for "playing": running with runner friends/family, or swabbing the deck of the houseboat, or swimming or skiing in the river, or hiking (looking for morel mushrooms), or chasing 2 yr old granddaughter :))... You get the picture!



Personal Information:


Other Information:
I am loving Crossfit, the challenge -- to my weight lifting abilities, to my stamina, and the camaraderie -- working out with my DH, my friends who are on similar level with me and those experienced crossfitters who inspire me!

    Hi Maree, thanks for posting on my page. I will check into the team you suggested for me. I haven't reached my goal yet, I started my journey July of 2016 and have lost 110 pounds so far. I have about 15 pounds more and I have not been able to achieve this. The last 3-4 months have been tough to lose anything at all. I appreciate you telling about the team it will keep me motivated to keep going. emoticon Ellen
