Workin' Granny

I'm a 60-something granny of six. My goal is to give my only granddaughter a good role model for eating and exercising. I spent years maintaining a healthy weight but in the last five years or so have let my work - 12-15 hours a day - get in the way of that. I have a typical corporate job, but am now looking at retirement **soon** - so I want to get a head start on redoing a healthy life.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog (My Spark Journey). We tend to think we're the only one facing problems and it helps to know that so many of us are overcoming obstacles and facing this journey together. I'm definitely taking a "round-about" road filled with detours, but I will reach my destination!
Thank you for your encouragement and support.
Sheila

Thank you for the Spark Goodie! i haven't been paying much attention to my Spark Page so it went unnoticed; I plan to watch the second season of Glee tonight and sip green tea! Looks as if you are off to a great start with nine off already! Keep the Spark.

Thank you for your comment. I have actually been pretty much vegetarian for the past six months and just finally decided to give up my 2-3 oz chicken 2 x week. I get protein every day from beans, soy, tofu, nuts. I wasn't craving carbohydrates last night...I was on an eating binge due to being lonely and tired and carbohydrates just happened to be the available comfort food as I don't keep candy in the house so I chowed down on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. It was closest to sweets I could get. I am an emotional eater and have an addictive personality and although I no longer drink I often use food in an addictive way. I am working with my AA sponsor on the food issue too. emoticon emoticon

Hi Granny!

Eating too little can be harmful...I usually eat about 1200 calories. When I cut back my mind becomes too cloudy and its too difficult to think! Since I have boosted my calories up to about 1200 per day, I am feeling much better.

Too little calories causes your body to go into starvation mode. Not good!

Thank YOU for your kind goodie and your Friendship! :)

Thank you for the tea! I will have it tonight; looks like cooler weather (maybe the high 80s!)
