Fitness Minutes: 16,817

My Goals:
You have to eat to live, but I don't believe that food should be mere sustenance. Food should be a pleasure to eat as well as healthful. I love to travel, and I don't buy designer bags or clothes - I enjoy regional cuisine and adventure! I want to be able to enjoy food, explore the countryside and be healthy doing it.

My Program:
Low grain/starch and exercise.

- Home cooked meals. One dining out option per week.
- 90g protein minimum
- 80g carbs maximum
- Clean eating - high quality vegetables, protein and fruits
- Minimal processed foods
- Low to no sugars
- Low glycemic fruits
- Occasional breads or starches, if desired.
- Sweet treat rarely.
- One glass of wine, if desired
- 30mins light to moderate exercise 4x per week
- 2 hours extended exercise on weekend (hiking, biking, kayaking, snorkeling, swimming, etc)

Personal Information:
I lived 6 wonderful years in Seattle, and 5 in Savannah. I have now returned to my hometown in Colorado Springs.

Other Information:
I'm a software engineer.

    Adventure for sure! But it looks like while you go into the waves, we go into the clouds! Seeing the globe from the opposite perspectives...

    Thanks for adding me! It is so pretty at the top of Blue Mountain. When I went, I was "lucky" enough to get there and watch a lightening storm roll in. I was hoping to get up there once more before the road closed, but alas the snow has come, and the road is closed. Next year though!

Just thought i would say hi and let you know you arent alone with the unemployment thing and all that. Oh and I saw your pics at Snoqualmie, do you live near by? Thats about 10 min away from me, its beautiful isnt it? Have a great night!
