What an adventure life is!!! But here I am... working out, trying new recipes and trying to make being healthy fun! :-)

I am 27... and a youth minister for a church in Scotland....a job that requires I work crazy hours, and have had to learn to work my food and exercise into that schedule!

I have always been overweight, and always hated myself... it wasn't until I learned to love myself, that I cared enough to get healthy!

My Program:
I am pretty good at sticking to my calories. I don't keep junk in the house but don't think of any food as off limits!
I practice calorie banking (eat at my lower limit during the week, and have one day a week to eat whatever I want (within reason!)) This way if I crave something during the week I promise that if I still want it on Saturday ill get it! it keeps me from feeling like I am dieting, and sets me up with something I am willing to stick to long term!


I have joined a gym and tend to spend 60-90 minutes there 5-6 days a week... I love the bike because I can exercise and read, I love the cross trainer because it really gets my heart rate up, and I love the treadmill because running feels like the best measure of progress!

I don't really like the weight machines so I tend to stick to free weights, and various forms of push ups and crunches :-) I love crunches!

Personal Information:
I am a youth worker in Scotland and always on the run! it's been a challenge to plan food on the go, but I have really started to get the hang of it!

Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. I am disappointed that my sugar threshold is such a small window, I will keep experimenting with it. I do love fruit so much too. I rely on it in the summer. And I am addicted to taking those frozen bananas and making them into "ice cream". I hope you have a good day and a great weekend!

I saw your status:

"survived a 12 hour all nighter with grumpy teenagers and lots of junkfood without getting off track! Victory!"

IMPRESSIVE! Heck, that is impressive to survive it even if you ate all night! emoticon The fact that you stayed on track is AMAZING! emoticon
