Creating a Healthy & Fit Lifestyle

My name is Sheila and I live in Virginia with my husband, Fred, and my dog, Max. I am a 60 something who has retired and is learning to take care of herself with a healthy lifestyle. I am allergic to wheat & gluten, and did I mention exercise? I am now exercising again. I look forward to learning from all of you as we journey together. Let's never ever give up!

Yes it's a very fun dance exercise program but it shows you step by step - and you will feel the calories burning : )

Our vet gave us our food scale. LOL. I would like to have a better one but free is good. I am always having to work on portion control too. That is chiefly why I weigh. I must admit I'm fairly disappointed when I see the serving size weighed out on many things. But it does teach me that some foods are calorie heavy and oil and butter are certainly some of them. I make my own salad dressings in a jar and add a little water to them to cut back on the oil. They are not quite as silky rich but still taste good. Don't feel bad. I'm a nurse who did some diet counseling and even I mess up a lot. I can't trust myself to eyeball something. Obviously my mind tricks me and I'm too generous. Weighing food keeps me honest.

Thanks for checking in on me. Things have been unusually busy. Somehow I am not getting some Spark notifications and I don't always remember to check my own Spark page. What a nice surprise to find your note! Thank you!
