Well, I'm new. Very new and very frustrated ; ). I started living what I knew as a healthy lifestyle in July of last year (2009) and managed to lose about 50 pounds by December 2009. Ever since, I have plateaued even though I am still calorie tracking and working out 6 days per week. I have been running myself into the ground by spinning, running, hiking, stairclimbing, walking, weight training, dieting, etc, all with good intentions followed by getting frustrated and taking it out on myself by restaurant "binging."
My husband referred me to this site. He has been eating this way (he used to call it the Paleo Diet) and working out in his own special way for over a decade and he is in the most incredible shape I have ever seen anyone in.
Just wanted to introduce myself. I have stopped running and stairclimbing as of yesterday because I actually have injured myself (hip and shin) and have decided to return to sprinting once a week, spinning twice per week, hiking once per week (I live in Hawaii and I cannot keep myself away from the gorgeous hikes on the island), and strength training with my personal trainer twice per week. I also want to add walking when I feel like moving. I don't know what I am doing in regards to PB quite yet, but I am sure I will figure it out in time.
