I can! I will!

I am Sarah and I want to be healthy! Welcome to my Spark page!
I am currently learning how to cook my own healthy food and change my eating habits so that I can lose weight. I have just been diagonized with polycystic ovaries and a TSH(Thyroid stimulating hormone) imbalance - I need to change my eating habits so that I can start a family and keep these medical conditions under control.

I love to sew, embroider, take photographs, read, blog, bake and make paper crafts. I hope to add exercising to this list!

I am tracking my workouts with Fitbit and I would love to have more friends there and we can challenge, motivate and support each other. Add me: sgracej@gmail.com

I am gently easing myself into physical activity - I have a knee problem and it starts aching if I over do the exercising.

I'm a ovo-vegetarian and I also like dairy. I've never liked the taste of meat and I don't think I will be eating meat anytime now. I am trying to make the following changes to my diet:
* Eating breakfast every day.
* Drinking Lemon water first thing in the morning.
* Avoiding processed food.
* Eating more protein to meet my daily requirements of protein.
* No processed sugars - no baked items, no chocolates or candy. I have fruit if I feel a craving.
* No rice or bread after 7 pm as far as possible :)
* Drinking at least 8 cups of water a day.

The blogs are actually already part of the book - many of the ideas in them come from the notes for the book. Writing is my passion, but I certainly am not looking for fame. I've been published quite a bit (in a Chicken Soup book and other anthologies, magazines, newspapers, etc.) and bylines make me happy!

We all have those "bad" weeks, and pizza is often the culprit. :D (Tell me about it. Good Friday, I committed so many culinary sins at the Chuck E. Cheese pizza buffet that I was worried I was going to have a coronary episode while trying to defeat my daughter at skeeball. I feared the mouse might actually ask me to leave!) I am inspired by your words, my friend, and honored that you enjoy mine. Just for the record, much of what you read in these blogs will someday be in my book, god-willing! It is my pet penning project this year, and I hope I can see it through.

You are most welcome! I am thrilled that you enjoy my blogs, and it flatters me to think I am motivating others, because I know firsthand how hard this quest is, especially when our jobs keep us prisoners of our laptops for most waking hours. My writing is my biggest passion in life, one I back-burnered for far too long after some small successes, so even beyond the weight loss, your kind comments about my blogs mean a lot! THANK YOU for encouraging me by being encouraged by the silly little things that pour out of my brain!

I understand how deadlines keep us prisoners of our computers and end up sending us on eating binges later! Happens to me all the time. Nice to meet a fellow grammar guru on here, but just please don't point out my typos and faux pas, because I don't self-edit in social networking. I'm off the clock in Spark and Facebook, darn it! :D
