Hello fellow Spark Peeps... Sparkers... Sparklers... or whatever Spark Peoples call themselves. I'm Jayne and I'm in my fabulous forties. I'm a long time vegetarian with food allergies and gluten intolerance. Yes, long gone are the days of pizza and beer. *sigh* Most days I'm okay with that... most.

In the last couple of years I've had a few health issues that have been factors in some weight gain. Boooo! I've been working very hard battling against those health factors to shed some pounds. Can you hear the theme song to Rocky? Me too!!!

Since January 2013 I've started "eating clean" which generally means I don't eat processed foods. It has involved a lot more cooking than I'm used to so it's been quite an adjustment. Translation: I'm super lazy in the kitchen and I mostly burn stuff.

I'm trying very hard to stay positive about my lifestyle changes. I feel like I've finally found the key to what works for me! :) Yaaaaay! Now if only I could hire a personal chef. Alas I am left to chop the broccoli myself. Okay now I have the Dana Carvey "choppin broccoli" song stuck in my head! I better get out of here before I start singing Broadway show tunes about food!
