About Us

My photo
Mike and I have been married for 10 years now, and luckily we still like each other! We've been together for over 15 years and we've spent it traveling, backpacking, climbing, skiing, triathloning, marathoning, sailing, eating, and going on as many adventures as possible. We now have two beautiful boys, Sam & Charlie, and we couldn't be more excited about seeing a whole new world through their eyes in the years to come!

Hello my name is Kristin and I too am addicted to food! We should start our own FA Blog for Food Addicts! Good luck with the training. I keep think I really need to start trying to enjoy running because I swear all runners are skinny!
You should get signed up for the New York City Marathon and come stay with us! I can for sure get you ready the night before with a great Carb meal! :O)

Yeah. You pretty much rock. I wanna be like Katy when I grow up.

I read somewhere, an actual scientific study, that people who think about food all the time (like you and me) usually have a lesion on one front lobes of the brain. Nothing dangerous, neurologically speaking, but dangerous for our waistlines.

Katy, I totally empathize. You've been better than I in that you are such an incredible athlete. Me, I'm a self-professed lazy ass.

There is a way to synthesize love of food with the ideal body image that we want. Mostly, don't be so hard on yourself. Second, I've taken to my Euro friends who don't even think about working out, but seem to eat well. Sounds silly, but slowing down eating has kind of helped with portion sizes. I can't do many small meals in the day. It's like every meal is a bloody snack. No fun. So I do the three meals and make them count. If I'm gonna have my cream, I'll enjoy what I've got on my plate. Plus, just sustaining activity, however low impact, throughout the day. It sucks for those of us who sit for work or who have to commute such long distances.

maybe this means we should all move to Europe. I say Italy or France. That way, Andy can snowboard and some parkour and Mike can inhumanly conquer peaks. You and me? Well, we'll start introducing Sam to the cheeses that make life worth living.

Who else is in?

Amen Vanessa!! Count us in on the move to Europe.

Stand still. Ya, I get that. I feel like every blog I read has people running. I'm good at running but I hate it. That makes a huge problem. The other problem is that I don't have cool mornings or evenings to run in. I never leave this house. I have house fever. I really can't get myself to start a REAL workout. Until now, because of your blog. Not because of something you said directly but because when I was reading it to Ben he said, "Katy Blommer? Is she fat? Like fatter then you?" So the workout is on, the marriage might be off, but the workout is definately on. (He's still trying to tell me what he ACTUALLY meant.)

You go girl! You are absolutely right, if you tell people about your goals, you are more likely to stick to them.

I know you don't want any diet advice, but check out Harriet Roth's Cholesterol Control Cookbook for some eating advice. I used it to get my Cholesterol under control, had the added benefit of losing some weight as well as changing some of my eating habits. And when I fall off the wagon, I've stopped beating myself up and just get back on as soon as it slows down enough for me to jump on.

Wow, good for you! I would like to do a marathon but I don't know if I could actually do it. I'm excited to read about your training. You can totally do it!!
