I’m Steph. I’m a 33-year old chick from Michigan who transplanted to New England. I’ve been married to an amazing man for 11 years and have gone through many ups and downs in life, in fitness and in general. Right now, I run a non-profit in the Boston area that houses women that have been sex trafficked (yes, it is hard work; yes, I love it).
Here’s the thing – I lost 34 lbs back in 2013-2014 through working out and eating clean. After that year, I was still feeling horrible and realized that my body was not processing even the clean food, so I made the switch to paleo and have been thankful ever since. My life is about maintenance (which is NOT easy). I’m often lazy, my schedule is insane, and 10 lbs creeps back up quite easily and then is never that easy to get off again.
I’m all about living life though to the fullest, never getting diabetes (the disease that took my mom’s life), cooking amazing food (Julia Childs is my hero) and kicking some butt (particularly mine) at the gym.
