Hi! Welcome to Sprinting Spoon! My little corner of the inter webs…
I’m Stacey–Christ follower, wife of one truly incredible man, mom of one ridiculously cute little guy, athlete, personal trainer, singer, music teacher, cook, photographer, avid reader, learner, and aspiring modern calligrapher. (Whew! That’s a lot of hats, but really, I just have “Work ADD!”)
I launched Sprinting Spoon because I’m passionate about helping people move the needle toward a healthier life for themselves and their families. A three year journey with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis has driven me deeper and deeper into health and wellness as I work to rebuild my health and heal my body from the inside out.
My mom put me in a cooking class the summer before I went to Kindergarten, and I guess you could say it just sorta stuck! My kitchen is my happy place. It’s my creative outlet. I love making and tweaking other people’s recipes, and I also love to make up my own recipes. I learned to cook from my mom, television, and reading cookbooks, and I also love to scour Pinterest for recipes that work! I believe that nutrient dense food does not have to be bland and boring. In fact, it’s the absolute most delicious!
I’ve been running since I was eight years old and competing since I was eleven. It’s in my blood. I LOVE running, but I’m also willing to admit that running is not always the healthiest activity for me, my hormones, and my thyroid. In the last few years, I have radically changed my fitness routine to create a healthier me! The results? Way more energy, way more time to do other things if I so choose, a few pants sizes smaller (yes, I workout less and lost a bunch of fat in the process), and a couple of pounds lighter (but only a couple…more on that later).
I got tired of hearing other moms tell me that they don’t “look like me” because they can’t workout for three hours every morning and then cook for an hour each night. My response? Sheesh! Neither do I! Creating a healthier you doesn’t have to be this mysterious, unattainable, pie-in-the-sky sort of ideal. It IS achievable. It DOES take time and effort (mainly to establish new habits), but it IS easier than you think! I want to walk down that road with you, providing you with tips and tricks and tools to make fitness and nutrient dense cooking a way of life for you. I LOVE digging deep into these subjects. I don’t love decorating my house. Seriously, if I could swap meal plans or workouts with you for decorating, planting flowers, or yard work, I would!! This is my happy place, and I’ve come to share what I am continually learning. I don’t have all the answers. I’m not there yet, but I do have a specific set of skills that make health and wellness easy, and I want you to learn them, too!
Let’s do this!
I love to hear from my readers! Drop me a line!
