Keeping Fit and Healthy

I'm here on Spark to continue and enrich my healthy lifestyle. I don't need to be the fittest or the thinnest, but I do want to be healthy! My main goals are to eat well (fruits and veggies, fiber, and less dessert) and exercise regularly. I'm 5'8" and have a healthy BMI. I have to eat gluten free because I have celiac disease.

I love the gym -- I never thought I'd say that! I take classes, which keeps me motivated. I aim for ~1000 fitness minutes every month. I try not to put too ...

Hi ya! Thanks for your comment on my blog. I think Nutritional Yeast is an acquired taste, but I'm using it more and more instead of 2% cheese which doesn't melt and I don't find satisfying. N. Y. comes in flake form so it is easy to add to recipes or sprinkle on top for that salty-cheesy flavor!

Oh, sorry! That is a bummer! I hope it goes well when you finally connect with your trainer. I did 30 minutes on ARC trainer today and then just planks and crunches. I did dumbbells yesterday for arms and I'm feeling it in my shoulders today! Hope you are having a good day. emoticon

Thank you so much for your comments to my page and blog...I always look forward to hearing what you have to say.....

Body Pump and I are taking a break I think.....I think the only thing that kept me going at it were my sister...who moved away and can't come to the gym....and the teacher... I love the teacher and her stories and how encouraging it is....but without my sister...I'm just going through the motions.....I honestly contemplated leaving halfway through this past Monday but didn't really want to have to explain that my heart was just not in it...so I stayed....

I've learned I'm definitely a solo exerciser....I like to run by myself, I don't mind running with my sister, but usually it's just more stressful cause we try to match pace and whatever....I love to lift weights but I get so self conscious about people looking at me and what not (except for Friday mornings when there are the worlds cutest old men in there!)....and I love zumba except when we have to do the group circle dance and not stand in our rows.... So body pump and I just need some time apart......sorry you can't get into it either....

As for the chiropractor, he was recommended by my nutritionist...he went for the nutrition response testing training....it's something my nutritionist started going for but took a different training instead...she goes and gets the tests done as well from him and she trusts him.....I have to admit I was skeptical of the way the test started....(I had to match my extended arm strength against his hand as he pushed on my belly button with all the vials on my stomach....but when the food one was put on...I literally couldn't match his strength even though I had been doing it all along....then we went vial by vial...he just put gluten on and I could match strength but with dairy I couldn't....and he even repeated it because i thought I did it wrong....then he tested all my systems by using the acupuncture pressure points.... Trust me, I'm very skeptical of all the quackery out there....I'm still a little iffy, but hey...what is two weeks worth of no dairy? The only thing I'm missing are ice cream and orgain....so I can survive....oh, and Mac and cheese.....

With the vegetables in my food, I try my darnedest to hide them in my sauce, chili, etc....and I can.....however, the crunch of veggies just disgusts me.....and I can't mix textures for my life....I can't eat a sandwich, I can't even eat a frosted cookie, although I can eat them separately....I don't know....I hate the thought of choking things down...but it's been two years and I get so worried about trying newer things and I just don't know....if I don't force it and choke things down...I just don't know if I will ever try it

And thank you for the post about sabotaging yourself....it's exactly what I do to myself....no matter how hard I try, some little thing just goes wrong and I just make sure to ruin it more....

I guess there is always something that we need to work on!

Thank you so much for your comments! They truly are appreciated!
