July update!
I am on Holiday from the 6th-26th. Will check in as much as possible. I will be tracking food and exercise and try to write my blog as much as I can. Have a great July and having my birthday in Spain it looks like :)~

Eating vegan as much as I can to reduce the sodium further, walking at least 90 minutes a day and getting back to 6-9 miles 5 times a week. Working on my strength training and tracking my steps each day. Getting into hiking more since it is so fun ...

Eating vegan as much as I can to reduce the sodium further, walking at least 90 minutes a day and getting back to 6-9 miles 5 times a week. Working on my strength training and tracking my steps each day. Getting into hiking more since it is so fun & a nifty workout. I drink tea, water, coffee, some soy. Seldom drink soda, never smoke & very rarely drink, no white products, avoid sugar and pretty much all dairy. I don't care for sweets too much. Eating more of the fruits I can tolerate well like apples, peaches, strawberries, oranges, red grapes, bananas in breads or smoothies.

Not really looking to lose much more weight for the most part (in maintenance) since I am within the range for my height and my clothes are feeling and looking quite good lately. I started at 143 and I am at 130 pounds now which is about right for me. I feel stronger and have more energy and want to gain muscle and greater health.

I joined Spark People, to keep gaining motivation to stay with exercise & a good nutrition, its a lifestyle. Plus my mood is always great after I exercise and I can see and feel the benefits of working out regularly! Always trying to get in the right amount of sleep since I deal with insomnia.

Making sure I am tracking, calories out are more than calories in for the day, keeping calm and even, practising meditation, deep stretching and proper breathing. Each month I will have short term goals and set long term goals. Also making sure I have time for my writing, journaling, reading, cooking, learning foreign languages, making sure I am taking care with my emotional health and having fun with my life~
