OK, there have been some changes in my life since I last used Spark Pages--the best of which was my recent commitment to re-dedicate myself to improving my health.

I already quit smoking (yeah!), but since I quit, I packed on some pounds and now it is time to get serious and remove them (safely). I don't beliefe in fad diets or taking diet pills. I believe in good old-fashioned common sense. My ideal way to lose weight is by exercising and eating healthy. My definition of eating healthy is eating only natural foods (no processed foods of any kind), with a balanced diet and having 5 or 6 small meals throughout the day work better for me.

I've already thought out (on paper) how I will have to adjust my daily schedule to make the time to exercise and prepare the foods I will need to take to work the next day with me (so I have available all of the food/beverages I will need to consume from the time I leave for work in the morning (6:15 a.m.) and when I get home (4:15 p.m.). This schedule has me getting up early (4 AM) and going to bed by 8:30 PM. I used to do this a while back and while it does take some getting used to, I find that I am happier and more relaxed (overall) when I rise early and go to bed early. It seems to suit my body too--because when I work out like this before going to work each day, I feel much bettter.

My goal is to feel better and have more confidence in myself. And there will be a day in my future when I am physically capable of doing a pull-up!!!
