Juliebug's Journey

I recently turned 50 and I really want to be has healthy and fit as I can be, so I am committed to making some lifestyle changes. I have never been very overweight, but I have struggled with gaining and losing the same 15 pounds for years. I also have been very sporadic with exercising, it's just not my favorite thing to do. I'm tired of being a "yo-yo" dieter and want to be consistent with clean eating and healthy living. I'm also a breast cancer survivor of 3 years, so I know that healthy eating and exercise are so important to continuing to be a survivor.

I recently discovered Clean Eating and love Tosca Reno's books and the Clean Eating magazine. I'm committed to losing weight and maintaining it the healthy way! So...welcome to my journey to being fit!

My Program:
I've recently read Tosca Reno's book Eat Clean Diet and am trying to follow many of the things I learned in it - no sugar or white flour or processed foods (I'm not completely there but am limiting these), and I'm incorporating more fruits and vegetables. I am also logging everything I eat and trying to stay between 1200 and 1500 calories a day.

I currently following the Bootcamp workouts, doing 30 minutes of cardio 5 days a week and using the bootcamp videos for strength training - they are great.

Other Information:
Here are some things I like to remember:

"The Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. "~Romans 14:15

I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand I will not be shaken. Psalm 16:8

“The groundwork of all happiness is good health.”

Hi Julie,

Stopping by to check on you and make sure you haven't fallen off the face of the earth (like I did. :)) I took a little break while we moved but I'm back now and hoping to get back to better habits. I put 10 of the 30 pounds that I lost back on! Ugh! Oh well... I'm not giving up.

How are you doing??
