Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Hello and welcome to my Spark page! My name is Dana after the Greek Goddess Danae of Argos. I am starting afresh after years and years of abusing my body with over processed, artificial, greasy, sugar laden foods, (if one can call it food); and a sedentary lifestyle. My chosen path is adopting a healthy lifestyle with eating whole foods and to stay away from processed foods.
I am starting on this path (again) with my boyfriend, Keven. The first month is eating low carb high protein foods for ketosis and then we will incorporate more vegetables. For my part I wish to include more cruciferous vegetables, kale, collard greens, chard, broccoli, brussel sprouts, and other dark green leafy veggies.
My starting weight is 167 and my goal weight is 130. Thirty-seven pounds by my next birthday seems lofty, but it is very doable and each day I will make the best choices for myself. I will remain strong not just for myself but for Keven as well.
My exercise goals include walking, biking, hiking, pilates, yoga, and weight lifting.
It is simple: eat meat, fish, vegetables, fruit, nuts, seed, healthy fats, move around a lot at a slow pace, lift heavy things, sprint occasionally, avoid poisonous things, get plenty of sunshine, use my mind, get lots of sleep, play, and avoid trauma.
