Looking forward to an even more fit New Year!

I am definitely (finally!) making progress lessening fatigue, body pain, and food cravings.These have been life-long symptoms . Wish me luck. Evening Eating has been the biggest problem. Oh and if I would eat at the table-instead of at the computer or in front of the TV--well that would help greatly!

Dec. 2014. Finally after 6 years Sparking, I am staying below 250!
Down 30 LBS.

Failing to plan is planning to fail!
-Do I have fresh and frozen produce in the house?
-Do I have meals frozen for when I just can't get it together?
-Am I drinking my water?
-Am I getting to the pool often? No problem here!!!!
-Am I pacing myself ?
Am I breathing?
-Am I getting the extra help I need, even if I have to pay for it? I am a CAREGIVER since 2008 for DH.
-Am I planning fun into my day? Well--I Life has thrown me some surprises lately. I will keep trying to plan in fun non-the-less.
-Am I Eating at the Table?. Oh boy is this hard for me!

Making progress:
NO SNACKS! NO SECONDS! NO SWEETS! except for "S Days!"
This is (was!) really, really hard for me!

Eat G-BOMBS! Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms, Berries and Seeds ...for reducing body inflammation and pain from FM.

We can do this, Friends! I can do this!

You've come a long way, Baby!
