NO MORE EXCUSES!

Back on Spark. Focusing on personal development and continuing my education. Not everyone here is going to agree with me and that's okay. It's not up to me change people's minds. All I can do is tell my truth and hope to help someone along the way. Hopefully my results will speak for themselves.

Just Eat Real Food (thanks for that btw Sean Croxton).

I was a Certified Personal Trainer who decided training wasn't my thing. Working out is fun and it should never be work, find something you love to do and do it!

I have a few jobs. I work as a supply Educational Assistant. I also work at a local farm store 1-2 days a week and with my carpenter husband when he needs a hand or a painter.

I have a gluten intolerance and I went gluten free before getting tested for Celiac Disease.

I eat vegetables, meats, fats, some fruit and dark chocolate. Unprocessed and preservative free. And it's changed my life!

I think my diet can best be described as a High Fat/ Moderate Protein/ Lower Carb diet with a Primal/Paleo/Atkins influence. I get 90% my carbohydrates from vegetables and fruits so that in itself makes me low carb compared to the SAD. I can be anywhere from 50-150g of carbs a day depending on activity level and what's in season.

Blood sugar regulation is really important to me as diabetes runs in my family. I try to keep my blood sugar levels as low as possible.

I love to cook! I typically eat foods that start with these ingredients.

Carrots
Green Beans
Broccoli
Red Pepper
Spinach
Onions
Garlic
Parsnip
Beets
Radish
Romaine
Avocado
Sweet Potatoes
Russet Potatoes
Squash
Ginger
Jalapeno Peppers
Asparagus


Granny Smith or Gala Apples
Raspberries
Strawberries
Blueberries
Bananas (during race season)

Eggs - pastured when possible
Heavy Whipping Cream
Yogurt
Aged Parmesan
Aged Cheddar - Occasionally

Butter
Coconut Oil
Olive Oil
Avocado Oil
Bacon Fat

I buy meats at my work. A farm store that sells local grass fed pastured, drug and hormone free meats and produce. One main reason I work there is for the discount and freebies!

Whole Roasting Chickens
Beef
Chicken
Pork
I also occasionally get free Bison, Emu and Elk

Almond Flour
Brown Rice Flour
Coconut Flour
Arrowroot Flour
Ground Flaxseeds
Ground Chia Seeds
Psyllium Husks
Cocoa Powder

80% Cocoa Dark Chocolate
Spices
Nuts
Seeds

My Goals:
To never stop learning and growing.

Persistence. Patience. Passion. Power. Prioritize.


My Program:
Consistently strength training and constantly mixing it up with different exercises like walking, HIIT, interval training, biking, running, sprinting, MTB racing and playing rec soccer.

I keep track of my exercise the old fashioned way, in a journal.



2018 Winter Routine

Soccer 1 x a week
Biking 2-3 x a week
Strength Training / HIIT 2-3 x a week
Running 1 x a week
Walking 2-3 x a week
Yoga/Stretching 2 x week



Personal Information:
Food produces hormonal effects in the body. Some hormones say 'store that fat'; others say 'release sugar'; others say 'build muscle.' Study after study shows that diets based on the same amount of calories, but different proportions of fat, protein and carbohydrates, result in different amounts of weight loss.

- Dr. Jonny Bowden



Other Information:
Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.

- Vince Lombardi


The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.

- Michelangelo

    I like your attitude and enjoy your posts. I think you should keep up what you are doing and continue to share when you wish, especially if it is working for you. Isn't that what this is all about? Working to better ourselves and sharing with others along the way! Thanks again! emoticon emoticon

    Thank you for your encouragement on my message board feed about sugar. My goal eventually is 'to just eat real food'. Its a long ways from how I grew up, on boxed processed foods however, slowly but surely I continue to move more in that direction.

    emoticon I copied your food list. -- The direction you said you eat seems exactly the "page" I'm on for better health. I love your varied carb spread: 50-150 each day. That feels closer to what I've been doing vs. 50 or under.

    I've incorporated fasting to assist my body in finding better health. (I've lost half of what is needed.) -- I still need to add in ST, but so far I haven't "made" that work.
    emoticon for all you do! Happy to see a like-minded Spark person!
