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 have recently completed the 100 days by Linda Spangle - it was a brilliant journey and has really made some lasting, positive changes to how I relate to food generally. On Oct 15th I am going to start working through another of her books 'Friends with the Scale' you can read about my progress here ...

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 to and keep my weight under 8 stone 7lbs
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 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.

Starting on 10th October I am intending to swim once a week. I am following a health-building programme from a UK swimming website, it's called Swimfit

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.

it's easy: I set timer to 10 minutes put on light classical music and wak up and down flight of stairs (holding banister, you'd be surprised how quickly calories burn) till buzzer sounds.... but in no way do stairs indoors compare to my love for outdoor walks... it's just a fix in rotten soggy weather.
