My goal is to be healthy, and have a healthy relationship with food. I've been on both ends - overeating and undereating.

I'm hypoglycemic, so eating small meals throughout the day works best for me, as well as a lower carb intake. I aim for 40% carbs, 30% protein and 30% fat.

I started weight lifting in February 2012, and I absolutely love it! I'm constantly surprised at how strong I'm getting and the improvements I see each week.

My Goals:
My goal is to maintain my current weight, to keep a healthy lifestyle with good food choices and regular exercise, and to tone my body.

My Program:
Weight Lifting 2x per week

Food = Fuel!

I do my best to fill my diet with whole, "real" foods and very little processed stuff. I focus on high fiber and a diet of 40% carbs, 30% fat and 30% protein and about 1400-1700 calories per day.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. We are going to try printing out the Spark meals each week and substituting for things they won't eat. We'll see how that works.
