    Authentic is a diluted word that a lot of “influencer” types throw around about their “content” but Lisa, you always come across as honest and real.

    I don’t remember exactly how I found your blog. I’m pretty sure it was when I started running. I always enjoy your recipes (big mac bowls!), book reviews and photography. The Pacific NW is on my travel list because of you, 🙂

      Thank you Christi! I appreciate the comment. I am glad I come across as honest and real. I try to share my experiences the best I can. (Love the big mac bowl too!)

      Hope you can come to the NW. It’s wonderful!

    I love what you wrote. Years of trying to make my body into something it didn’t want refuced both confidence and my relationship with food. My naturopath finally looked at me and said-in effect- you r a 73 year old diabetic with blood sugar numbers that will allow u to get off meds within 6 months-your blood pressure is 100/60- you can hold a 15 minute plank and teach 3 classes in a row-throw the scale away, stop comparing yourself to any preconceived notion of size, continue eating natural healthy foods and smile! He was right-I rarelyweigh myself any more and I’ve quit obsessing about food and started enjoying it much more. Just got home from Annie’s where I filmed a three part foundation movement series without being tired at all-and I am damned grateful. Let’s see a skinny 30 year old food deprived woman keep up with me. LisA-you r beautiful inside and out. You carried life within you and birthed a healthy awesome boy-you are in shape-you r active-fuck the weight charts which r outdated and b proud of yourself-because there is lots to b proud of❤️❤️❤️

      Love your post! This is what I have been working towards! Do what works for you in a healthy way that can be forever. Your son will remember the family pizza nights, not what mom looked like. Thanks for sharing.

        Oh good point! Yes, he won’t remember that I was dieting or if I was skinny. He’ll remember the happy memories. Thanks for the comment 🙂

      Thank you Star. I appreciate it! You are right. Being healthy and active and strong doesn’t necessarily mean skinny and it doesn’t have to. You are an excellent example of being fit at any age!!

    This is such a refreshing post to read! I think exploring eating styles and experimenting with recipes and ingredients is great; when it starts to consume a lot of brain space is when I think it can be less helpful. I’m glad you’re finding something that feels positive.

    I’ve been reading your blog for years – before your wedding, anyway – because I’m also in Portland and liked all your hiking tips, recipes, and book posts. It seems like there will be lots of room for those!

      Thanks Beth! I think you put it perfectly: it was consuming a lot of brain space. That’s how it felt. It was on my mind ALL DAY LONG. How many net carbs am I at? Can I have a few cherries (my favorite part of summer) or will that put me over my carbs for the day? It wasn’t good.

      I always appreciate hearing from readers! Especially local. 🙂
