I'M BAAACCCKKK!!!

Hello to all who care.  It has been a while since I was here...in fact almost two years have passed since I graced these pages with my thoughts.  Guess I haven't had many thoughts. ; )  As I was preparing to post this I came across the 2012 year end wrap up I wrote so I went ahead and posted it.  Seems there were a great many thoughts to share.

So why am I here today?  Well my husband and I are about to embark on a fitness and nutrition adventure and I aim to document it here.  The LuRong Paleo Challenge begins Monday 9/16/2013.  This challenge combines a clean (i.e Paleo) diet with CrossFit workouts.  We will track our progress over the next eight weeks, posting our nutrition and workouts, trying out new recipes and giving our testimonials on the way to becoming our best selves.  The challenge begins with a weigh-in, measurement taking and bench-mark workouts prescribed by the LuRong folks and monitored by our CrossFit coaches.  I am both looking forward to and dreading the beginning of this challenge.  I know what a difference clean eating makes in my overall health and well being and in the way I feel and look.  I also know that this lifestyle is definitely a challenge but it is made easier since I am sharing it with my best friend, lover and life partner.  I also have a fun surprise planned for the end and this will help to keep me motivated.  We all know I need more than health and well being to keep me motivated.  

Along with this challenge we are also training for a series of races and I am battling a knee injury, all of which add to the challenge.  I was able to run this past weekend with little pain so I know I am getting stronger.  I'm just not confident enough to actually commit to a race yet but I will...

Until then I hope to see you on the run!
