I never thought I’d start a blog, but then again I never thought I’d run a half marathon or give up gluten. So here we are. My hope is to share my life of wellness, particularly through fitness and food. As far as fitness goes, I guess I’m a runner now… I’m still not used to that since I hated it so much before. It was always a chore, something I had to do, but not anymore! I love yoga, and I want to become a better yogi. I enjoy classes at the gym, most recently body flow (a combination of yoga, tai chi, and pilates). Craig got me a tennis racquet for my birthday, but I’m not very good yet. Maybe one day. Oh and hiking is great! This is the view from a hike we did at Wintergreen. Marlee came so we didn’t go too far, but I need to get her in better shape because she LOVES hiking!
As far as food goes, I love it. When I was following paleo, it was easy to explain to people how I ate. Now it’s a little bit harder because there’s no label for how I eat. I just eat well, “clean.” I love to eat real, whole foods. I love shopping at farmer’s markets and eating local when I can. I try to eat organic and non-GMO foods. This past summer I bought fresh produce from my co-worker and loved getting these baskets delivered to my desk each week!
So this is the start of my journey recording my life striving to eat well and live well because it’s made such a big difference in my life!
