My mission at Good Life Architect is to help people rediscover food and fitness as sources and sustainers of health and vitality, and to realign their lifestyles according to a deeper understanding of the way their individual bodies prefer to be fueled and to function, so that they can thrive.
Dust off your human blueprint and discover that you were designed to thrive!
“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Honestly I'm excited. I'm excited about this new approach I'm taking toward what I eat. It feels more empowering than restrictive because instead of focusing on what I'm choosing not to put in my body I'm focusing on all the new things I'm going to get try and enjoy that will also help my body thrive.
We did it. It wasn't perfect but it was pretty close. We each had a reason - I'd been having tummy trouble for months, Katy wanted to help her acne, and Scott joined in surprisingly just to try it out. I cooked (and cooked and cooked) and proportioned everyone's meals - it took time and planning but it was so worth it.
It was also 30 days in which I lost 22 pounds with little exercise, and on day 28 I got blood work done. On day 31 I got an email from my doctor that said my inflammation markers were normal. NORMAL. I hadn't heard that 11 years. My psoriasis is under control, my bloating is under control and my clothes fit. My skin looks better than is has in years and my hair is strong and shiny!
In 2005, I was working on a year-long contract with the US Department of State in Kabul, Afghanistan. I lived on a secure compound with roughly 125 other contractors. MAN CAMP! When we weren’t on duty, our primary choices in leisure activities included eating and working out at the base gym. Needless to say, I did a lot of both. At 5’6”, my weight tipped at 195 pounds. I had a 36” waist and a body fat calculation of 27%. It was the strongest I’ve ever been in my life. It was also the unhealthiest I’ve ever been.
