This is our family picture from last summer.
This is spring 2009
Well, it's about time I get with the program and tell you all a little bit about myself. My name is Genevieve (or Genni). I live down in the west Texas town of El Paso where you can go swimming in January (not really). I'm a 17 years old stay-at-home-daughter, I enjoy cooking, cleaning, jumping on the Trampoline, and being with my family.
I am 5´7"
134 lbs (I weighed 120 last year at this time:(
My goal si to get down to 120 pounds again.
I'm an ultra health nut, but in the past year I've let myself slip quite a bit eating cookies, ice cream, sugar etc. those never kind of foods, but I'm very excited to get back in shape with you all. My mom and I are doing this together. The plan is to do the Makers Diet by Jordan Rubin. It has three, 2-week phases.
Phase 1 you can eat:

*Wholegrain (soaked /fermented, in small amounts):Ezekiel bread, Essene bread, Desem bread, Quinoa, Buckwheat, Kamut, Oats, Spelt, Amaranth, Millet, Cereal, Brown rice, Barley. Pasta.
I have felt very good doing this diet when I've done it in the past. Just goes to show you that God knows best and we do best when we follow him (even his diet). One more thing I have as a goal is to eat oly at meal times with the rest of my family, which will, I think, have a big impact on my fitness goals. God bless you all. May we seek to glorify Him with our body and minds.
