Hello, I am a wife, mother and work full time. As a family, we love to hike, bike, and ski. I joined SparkPeople to help me achieve my goal of a healthier lifestyle. When it comes to diets I have tried almost all of them. I came across the Ketogenic Diet in 2016 and that has become my way of eating. I have joined a few communities on SparkPeople and FaceBook that give guidance and support for this way of eating. Each year I do become healthier by staying active. I have changed my southern eating habits to have the energy to enjoy a more active lifestyle. Tore my ACL & meniscus in 2014 and had surgery that same year. It has been a real struggle recovering from the surgery and I have gained more weight on top of what I had already needed to lose. I also suffer from Hypothyroidism and have been working with my doctor trying to find the right dosage. It has been a real struggle these past few years. I am on a journey to achieve ultimate healthiness inside and out.

    One mile at a time works best for me. You will have to let me know how it goes. We have such a mess in our streets that I’m not having much luck jogging. Maybe next week will be better. Spring has to come eventually!

    How have things been? Ready to enjoy some 24 hr fasting!! Been working out too so it will be nice to see the changes that come about with a combination of exercise and low carb!

    Thank you for the advice on my blog. I was pretty happy eating healthy and I wasn’t missing sugar. Then I switched jobs, ended up having less time to cook and then food gets really boring quick. Enter sweet treats!

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.
