I have to get up every morning and tell myself, "I can do this." I must wake up with a new determination to be productive and healthy. When I go to bed at night I must have the satisfaction that I did what I set out to do for the day. I have to control my mind and the way that I think. If I do this, I can conquer my body. I must realize that I CAN control what I put in my body. No one else can do this for me. I must do it for myself.

I do believe in myself and know that I can make that difference that I am looking for. No one can make the difference for me, I have to do it for myself. I must replace negative thoughts with positive ones of hope and perseverance. I have to make each day count and know that I have to make a change in me.

January, 2017
The program that I will be following is low sodium due to my hypertension. I will be using the trackers from SparkPeople. I also plan to do more plant-based meals than I have in the past.

I plan to exercise using chair exercises right now because I have an acute sciatic nerve problem in my left leg. I also plan to do stretches to help with the pain. Until this pain subsides I am going to get at least 2500+ steps per day. As I get stronger and feeling better I will increase
