I am looking to change the way I eat for life, coupled with daily exercise that will become a habit. I lead a very busy lifestyle running a country inn with my husband, taking care of our two dogs, 6 cats and two ponies. I refinish antique furniture and create works of art out of old restored windows. Sometimes I get lost in all the tasks and forget to eat properly and exercise. I need to learn to take the time for me...to take care of myself physically, emotionally and mentally.

My Goals:
I'm looking to make healthy living a habit. I want to make exercise and sensible eating a no brainer. I tend to lose focus and the pounds slowing pile on and once again I am back where I started.

My Program:
I will exercise 6 days a week with intermittant cardio using a walk/jog program. I will keep a journal on my ITouch which will calculate my daily calories less my exercise calories.

Personal Information:
My husband and I live in Vermont and own The Inn at Buck Hollow Farm, a small country inn. I enjoy refinishing country antiques and am part of an antique group shop. I am also an artist. My median are old windows which I clean, restore and then paint country folk art scenes on the glass.

Other Information:
I am fortunate to live on 400 acres in rural Vermont. I have a wonderful pet family of 6 cats, two dogs and two ponies. I hate being away from them for more than a day or two which happens a couple of times a month. Most days I am up early ( 5 a.m.)and exercise with the portable DVD player for 30 to 40 minutes. During our busy season when the inn is full it becomes easier to make excuses for not exercising. I can easily get distracted with that first cup of coffee in the morning along with checking email. One thing can lead to another then time has run out. If the weather cooperates it's great to take a walk on our road which is 2 miles from beginning to end. What's good about taking that walk is once you start you can't quit like when you walk on a treadmill. You need to keep walking in order to get back home. I find what has worked for me is keeping myself busy and I always keep my knitting near by which keeps my hands busy and I don't think about eating when I am stationary.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon Kudos to you for joining us here on the Raw Foodies Team. This will be one of the best decisions you have ever made. Sparkers come here and join this great team for a multitude of reasons. They may be curious about the health benefits of Raw Food and join to learn all about eating Raw. Many join for the weight loss. Many join the Team for a Detox. There are a great many people who do the Raw Food Diet as a Detox but then they realize how alive they feel and how the pounds melted away so effortlessly they decide to continue to eat this way. There are others who will join this Team for the health benefits of a Raw Food Diet. A diet based on raw food can reverse diabetes, arthritis (I personally have experienced this. I went off all of my arthritis meds after only a few weeks), heart disease, cancer (that is how I became involved with the Raw Food Diet when my sister was diagnosed with Lymphoma), eliminates migraines, the list goes on and on.

    So join us and learn how to make the transition from SAD (Standard American Diet) to a healthy Raw Food Diet. You will be happy you did!
