My Goals:
I want to feel better about myself and take control of my life.

For 2015 I will work on taking more responsibility for my decisions, not just in terms of diet, but in all aspects. Specific actions (subject to addition and/or modification):

--Walk a minimum of 6,000 steps every day

-- Eat at least 3 freggies a day

-- Use the Nutrition Tracker at least 6 days out of 7

-- Stay within my calorie range at least 6 days out of 7

-- De-clutter my work area and my house, donating/discarding one garbage bag of "stuff" per month.

Another longer term goal for 2015 is to get out of the obese BMI range. Just being overweight would be a great improvement!

My Program:
Accurately tracking my food and exercise.

Personal Information:
I'm originally from the Albany NY area, but I now live in the 'burbs outside of Syracuse, NY.

Other Information:
The things I love best in the world are my family, including the best dog that ever lived -- Beanie!!

Little mini-challenge for you: Gain energy from eating some vitamin C-rich foods.

Over the next few days, concentrate on adding foods rich in vitamin C to your meals or snacks. There are plenty of options, including red or green bell pepper, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, strawberries, kiwi, cantaloupe, and papaya. Or get a liquid dose with a glass of orange, grapefruit, or vegetable juice. A chewable vitamin C is also a viable option (I find this easiest, actually).

A deficiency in vitamin C may deplete your levels of carnitine (a substance that helps your body burn fat for energy) by as much as 50%. As you'd expect, that can make you feel a lot less energetic! Many of us don't get the C we need, so adding one vitamin C-rich food can help you bring those levels up and keep you going strong throughout the day. emoticon emoticon

Little tid-bit I read over the weekend & wanted to share . . .

"Just take a bit of whatever you're craving and let it sit in your mouth for a count of 30. You'll fully relish the texture and flavors--and trick your brain into thinking you've eaten more!"

We are the Champions, my friend! We can rock this Challenge! emoticon emoticon
