Healthy Beginnings

I love health, fitness and nutrition - my current job, past and current courses, all revolves around these industries. I have the knowledge and skills to help people make positive changes in many aspects of their lives, and yet...I haven't been able to consistently apply any of this to myself.

So, I am going to once again bow down to the wisdom of sparkpeople...make those healthier nutrition choices, choices for my overall health and wellness and get into a consistent and balanced ...

So, I am going to once again bow down to the wisdom of sparkpeople...make those healthier nutrition choices, choices for my overall health and wellness and get into a consistent and balanced fitness routine. And this time, I'm determined to make these changes a permanent part of my life, not just a passing 'phase' of good health...

My Goals:
Fitness Goals:

I am slowly recovering from heel & knee issues that sidelined me from running for over a year. the plus side is that it forced me to check out some other forms of exercise and I think my fitness is more well-rounded because of it. My long term goal is to complete a marathon. Because I'm back to square one, my first milestone goal is a 5K.

Nutrition Goal:

- To cut out all refined carbs and processed foods.

- To cook through a cookbook (check out the sparkteam if you want to join in the fun!)


My Program:
Currently aiming for:

- Yoga 6x/week

- Hiking 1x/week (taking advantage of those short summer months)

- Kickboxing (or cardio class) 2x/week

Personal Information:
Random quotes I like:

"The quiet people are the one who change the universe, the loud ones only take credit for it"

"I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once. "

"Do not be afraid of cooking, as your ingredients will know, and misbehave."

"It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything."

"Sounds like someone has a case of the Mondays"

"If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then give him only two of them."

"If something's broke, fix it. If you don't know how, learn. If you're not willing to learn, don't complain about it. If it can't be fixed, then accept it, and move on."

Other Information:
i like to read (anything at all...seriously - if it has words, i'll read it) and write (although most of what i write will never be read). I also love music (pretty much everything), movies (comedies mostly) and I love to laugh (and add side notes in parentheses after everything I write :-p)

Hi! Wow! how time flies when we're having fun!

I've been really busy and enjoying the festivities of the Easter season (which is my favorite holiday by the way) and now I'm about to get ready for some over night company that will be here in the early afternoon tomorrow then we will be getting ready to go to the coast for some fun and relaxation. When the sun comes out...I go out! It's great!

How about you? Have you been busy or are you getting ready for BBQ season/summer which will be upon us very soon now!

I read that persimmons have high levels of fiber, potassium, magnesium, calcium and antioxidants which are all super weapons against atherosclerosis! Who knew?

Have a great week and a great Mother's Day on the 8th!

I just read a cure for bad Mondays!

It said that when you're feeling groggy or foggy to sniff ground
sage for an energy boost. Research showed that sage aroma
suppresses the enzyme acetylcholinesterase that prevents the
brain's ability to feel alert and happy! Not only that, but aromatherapy
experts say sage can improve mental focus AND memory!

My personal suggestion is...fresh ground or a good brand of coarse
ground sage. The cheap stuff is very offensive to my nose.

Have a great week and remember to stay focused!
