Dedicated to Getting Fit & Staying Fit!

I have exercised fairly regularly during various periods of my life, but let things slip when I started working outside the home about 7 years ago. The result is that I gained weight, lost muscle tone and energy. I felt terrible and thought it was a natural part of energy but was still seeking an answer to the "yucky" feeling I had about myself. After being on Sparkpeople since February 2008, I have realized that exercising and eating clean isn't just something I SHOULD do, but it is ...
I have exercised fairly regularly during various periods of my life, but let things slip when I started working outside the home about 7 years ago. The result is that I gained weight, lost muscle tone and energy. I felt terrible and thought it was a natural part of energy but was still seeking an answer to the "yucky" feeling I had about myself. After being on Sparkpeople since February 2008, I have realized that exercising and eating clean isn't just something I SHOULD do, but it is ESSENTIAL to my health, especially as I get older!

I also trying to teach my two daughters, 15 & 17 about the importance of a healthy lifestyle by:
- serving at least 2 fruits/veggies at dinner
- not eating when bored or past 8pm
- encouraging them to drink water, not pop
- if they want a snack - have plenty of healthy choices available and offering those (but not getting upset when they want a cookie)
- encouraging family activities & having fun together(i.e., walking, biking, volleyball, golf, swimming)
- letting them see my commitment to working out at home and encouraging them to join me if they'd like

Thanks to my husband who is very supportive of the changes I am making! He's always encouraging me when he sees me working out - not for his benefit but for mine.

Thanks to God for being a wonderful Lord and Savior - as well as giving us all of these wonderful fruits & veggies to eat.

My Goals:
Rip Esselstyn:

"You are in for a spectacular health makeover. I know that if I didn't follow this diet, I would never have had the energy to be a world-class triathlete orójust as demandingóa firefighter. On a plant-based diet, you'll be stockpiling away the nutrients like never before, improving your health, and reversing disease. If I can drag you away from your disease-promoting diet to a better way of living, the impact will be as powerful as dragging you out of a raging fire."

My Program:
I love walking with my dogs - especially Abbie, my Cairn terrier mixed breed, who is a great pace-setter!

But I DO feel FULL and I never feel overstuffed. My natural shut off mechanism is working for the first time in a very long time. I'm always satisfied after a meal and don't get hungry until an hour before it's time to eat the next meal.

Hi Chaz! So great to "see" you. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I just started week 3 and I'm still feeling great! Lots of energy and the weight is coming off slowly but it's coming off. The best part is I sleep like a rock at night, wake up with energy in the morning and I have energy throughout the day without the need for caffeine. I'm not having cravings either. I can't wait to see where I'm at come June 4th. Miss you! I'll stop by the thread asap. emoticon
