Well for starters, she is no longer that girl who weighs 284 lbs. That girl was a lot of fun and she always had a good time, but she wasn’t healthy!
Fast forward to today, she had a RNY gastric bypass revision WLS in August of 2010 ,lots of plastic surgery to fix her jiggly bits and lots of really hard work and you have the girl who is fit and healthy!
She USED TO BE A RUNNER!
I completed my first ever Ultramarathon in June 2014 . 35 miles !
I’ve completed 3 50k’s to date and my first 50 miler in May 2016.
BUT SHE ISN’T A RUNNER ANYMORE!!!!!!
My newest addiction is lifting weights. I highly encourage all women to pick up some weights. Now you do not have to go crazy on them but do pick them up. There are many functional lifts you can google and learn form … these will not make you muscular, bulky or man like!
Studies show that you continuously burn fat after a lift session, so why would you not .. right?
Getting strong is my new focus seeing as I have been injury plagued from running. My last foot injury never healed and my hips a toast, so why not turn my passion into something else.
On the food side of things, I have tried everything out there and I am happy to have found http://avatarnutrition.com for my macro counting program. They have taught me that I need food to fuel me and CARBS ARE NOT EVIL! My current lifts are fueled by waffles!
Stay healthy , happy and fit my friends!
My blog will continue to host lots of “interesting” recipes that I hope you will experiment with and put your own spin on it!
So I hope you enjoy this site and l hope you stick with me as I focus on new avenues of training. I will be hosting more info videos on lifting and where my goals are now.
