I've been making small lifestyle improvements over a period of more than 10 years. Looking back over my life I realize that I can thank good genes for getting me as far as I am! I don't think I've EVER really lived a healthy lifestyle. Even when I was thinner or in better shape or both I got there by some really sketchy means. No, I was never bulimic, just never ate healthily when I was getting thin or staying thin. I smoked for many years. I still drink more alcohol than I should, though I am MUCH improved over my past.

I am a realist. I'm not interested in temporary fixes; however, I will only make permanent changes that are convenient and relatively painless. Great habits and routines have to be doable or they don't get done.

My progress so far:
~ Quit smoking
~ Cut alcohol consumption by 90%
~ Upped my water intake from almost none to just about enough
~ Cut my stress and anxiety levels enormously
~ Found the healthiest food lifestyle and will follow it for life
~ Improved the quality of the food I buy
~ Lost 35 pounds pretty easily
~ Worked many small fitness routines into my lifestyle
~ Improved my thyroid health

What's left?

~ Routinely getting enough sleep
~ Creating a better work/life balance
~ Losing 30 pounds of fat
~ Becoming truly active in the Primal Blueprint spirit!

My Goals:
I've never liked making goals, because once you reach them you just have to make new ones. Therefore I now have Intentions, rather than Goals. I mean, you can have Goals and never, ever work towards them. Intentions, on the other hand, imply a little more action, though not necessarily in any specific timeframe. Suits me to a T! My intention is to Be Happy and Live Long and Well.


My Program:
I'm permanently low carb. I am well nourished without much of the empty calories of grains, starches, or sugars. I feel better in most ways than I ever had in the past!

I am trying to be more active, as opposed to being an "exerciser". Exercise for its own sake bores me, therefore I won't do much of it. A few minutes a week of light weights, a lot of walking and running stairs while at work, and household upkeep will have to do me.



Personal Information:
59, happily married, two terrific sons and two adorable cats. Love me some video games!

    I hear ya on the pain...something that was recommended to me was Turmeric and Pineapple. The chiropractor who recommended it was very sweet (and cute!), but I just laughed and said "how about 800 mg Ibuprofen every 8 hours, instead"? I mean, I was in PAIN. Also, although I've relied heavily on Ibuprofen and chiropractic adjustments in the past, something that has recently helped is full-body massage (like, 90 minutes of deep massage by someone who really knows what she's doing) and using a foam roller. Especially with hip issues - a lot often starts with poor spinal alignment. The foam roller has been amazing. Just some thoughts! Hope you're feeling ok and enjoying your busy summer!
