Happy, Healthy Me!

I am 59 yrs old, vegetarian not overweight, but getting older and feeling less strong, fit and supple than I used to be. Would like to maintain good health as I get older.

I am aiming to be healthy and fit - so looking for a gradual and lasting change of lifestyle that will help me maintain optimum health for the rest of my life!

Having tried a whole load of different health eating strategies and bought more cookery books than I can even remember - I am now embarking on a MAINLY vegan wholefood journey and trying out more raw recipes.

My Goals:
1) to get and keep my weight under 9 stone
2) to get and keep my waist under 29"
3) to maintain a supple and strong body into my later years
To be a slim, strong, fit woman!

My Program:
I am eating mostly vegan, I am limiting wheat and sugar dramatically, I practise portion control. I eat 5-6 times a day. I follow general principles of low-fat, wholefood eating and am mindful of getting protein, especially in my snacks.

I am running regularly - following the Jeff Galloway system.

I have started doing some weight-lifting with dumbells - just a few at a time so I don't get over-whelmed.

I do some yoga, and enjoy QiGong type workouts. I discovered Taoflow on YouTube (Cain Carroll) which I like a lot.

I am wanting to find a way to swim regularly.

Personal Information:
I live by the sea in the South West of the UK. I work full-time as a support worker with adults with learning disabilities. I am a Nichiren Buddhist which involves me in lots of activities.

I know! We moved to Rockport 20 years ago. Our daughter would like us to move closer to her DC area home, but this area is a piece of paradise! emoticon

Daily Acceptance Prayer
Author Unknown




I accept myself completely.
I accept my strengths and my weaknesses,
my gifts and my shortcomings,
my good points and my faults.

I accept myself completely as a human being.
I accept that I am here to learn and grow,
and I accept that I am learning and growing.
I accept the personality I've developed, and
I accept my power to heal and change.

I accept myself without condition or reservation.
I accept that the core of my being is goodness
and that my essence is love,
and I accept that I sometimes forget that.

I accept myself completely, and in this acceptance
I find an ever-deepening inner strength.
From this place of strength, I accept my life fully and
I open to the lessons it offers me today.

I accept that within my mind are both fear and love,
and I accept my power to choose which I will experience as real.
I recognize that I experience only the results of my own choices.

I accept the times that I choose fear
as part of my learning and healing process, and
I accept that I have the potential and power
in any moment to choose love instead.

I accept mistakes as a part of growth,
so I am always willing to forgive myself and
give myself another chance.

I accept that my life is the expression of my thought,
and I commit myself to aligning my thoughts
more and more each day with the Thought of Love.
I accept that I am an expression of this Love.
Love's hands and voice and heart on earth.

I accept my own life as a blessing and a gift.
My heart is open to receive, and I am deeply grateful.
May I always share the gifts that I receive
fully, freely, and with joy.
