5% challenge - Cloverleafs Team


Member Since: 8/4/2016

Fitness Minutes: 50,516

My Goals:
I'm a crazy bucket list kind of a girl and it's served me well. By pursuing #1, I hope to be able to accomplish the other things on my list including those listed below.

1) Eat a clean diet, nourish my body, my brain, and find myself feeling better than ever before.

2) Bike 100,000 miles after my 50th birthday. As of 11/26/18, I have 87,320 miles to go!

3) #1 on my bucket list is to spend 3 weeks hiking in the Himalayas somewhere tbd. I've been fascinated with many stories about Mt. Everest ever since I read Jon Krakaer's "Into Thin Air." I have contemplated doing this hike for decades, but gave up on the idea after 2006. In 2016 I had a change of heart, change in hope and made this my #1 goal.

I want to do a hike in this area in the next 3-5 years and am on it! It’s definitely a reach for me. I’m not into crowds and prefer places off the beaten path so I likely will not go to Basecamp 1, but somewhere else in the Himalayas or Tibet. We wil


My Program:
August 2020--BIG CHANGE WITH RESULTS

Dr. Eric Berg, Dr. Jason Fung, Amanda Rose-Eat Like a Bear: Intermittent fasting, whole foods, Carbs target 30-100 per day, mostly from veggies, nuts, seeds, fruit (little), NO processed foods! Life Changing! 21.6 lbs in 53 days. Great energy, super alert.

I'm constantly working with this and I read a lot on diet, nutrition, health, etc. I believe in alternative therapies, and the power of the mind.

Deepak Chopra's book "What are you hungry for?" has captured my attention. Healthy eating but also healthy mind-body thoughts I relate well to. We'll see where this goes. (1/26/19)

I'm going back to the Whole30 plan after discussing this with my dr. I also plan to implement some of what Chopra discussed in his book. It made sense. (3/27/19) Ummmm...recommitting. 12/21/19




Personal Information:
Married, 55 years old, 2 dogs. Work full-time. I Love to travel. The bicycle is my favorite mode of transportation. Last major bike trip was 2 weeks in England, 400-500 miles.

    October is pumpkin time.
    the nicest time of the year.
    When all the pumpkins light their eyes
    and grin from ear to ear.
    Because they know it's Halloween.
    They'll have lots of fun.
    Peeking through the window panes
    and watching people run."
