following: Revaudrey's own diet
performance: losing 2.8 lb a week

I am a 55 year old woman- wife, mother of three adult children, priest in the Episcopal Church in CT. I serve on our diocesan staff as a Canon. It is an exciting and stressful job that has me on the run 6 days a week, day and night. I love it.

In other parts of my life I have been an elementary school teacher and a restaurant and catering chef. I love to cook. It is a spiritual exercise for me.

I discovered exercise in my late 20s when I married a hockey player. Until then I had never exercised. Mostly, I have a love/hate affair with running. I have run 5 marathons and several half marathons. I love the training and sense of accomplishment. These days I am in the gym, spinning and run/walking on the treadmill. I am trying to save my knees for the remaining 3 decades of my life.

I have a food and spirituality blog at

In my life I have lost and gained and lost the same 30 lbs. 6 or 7 times. It is exhausting. I love to eat desserts and to drink. These additions to my otherwise extremely healthy (organic, whole foods, good fats, etc) diet are enough to let the weight creep on- usually in the summer when Gin and Tonics and Ice Cream are a regular part of my diet. I hate feeling restricted ( there's probably some good psychotherapy to be done here) and I think that my mother had an undiagnosed eating disorder. I watched her quietly diet her way through her life.

I want to be strong and fit.

I grow my own
Yes, I have that problem, too.
The best I can do is to break down recipes and search for the whole, not processed ingredients on the lists.

Butternut Squash Overload
cube up the squash, toss in a bowl with a bit of olive oil and a tiny sprinkle of sugar and some fresh herbs ( rosemary? thyme) and cook in a medium hot oven on a cookie sheet until caramelized and cooked through. Use a spatula to turn over half way through. Really good cooked drizzled with balsamic vinegar. I also like this over fresh spinach for a hot salad.

Hello Buddies!
you go, girl. You can do this. And I love the idea of a new wardrobe at the end! Give yourself some smaller rewards along the way!
