Make it healthy!

I'm not terribly overweight (yet) but I am terribly out of shape. I gained a few pounds after quitting smoking last year and I have lead a sedimentary lifestyle for the past 10 years and need to get in shape. I am finally motivated and plan to stay motivated to eat a healthy vegetarian diet and get MOVING!

I have been a vegetarian for most of my life and have been vegan off and on for the past 3 years. I recently refreshed my memory about why I became vegen in the first place so ...

I have been a vegetarian for most of my life and have been vegan off and on for the past 3 years. I recently refreshed my memory about why I became vegen in the first place so I'm back to zero animal products and feel better for it. Sometimes I go through gluten free phases, but for now I am indulging.

I avoid the doctor or anything related to western medicine like the plague and choose to take care of things on my own whenever possible. When that doesn't work I do have a naturopathic doctor I can trust when necessary.

*Update 3/21/13 I'm happy to say that since I joined SparkPeople I have already noticed positive changes. My mood has elevated, my clothes are fitting better, I have energy to spare, I am sleeping like a rock and I am eating regular meals. I think I'll go eat something right now just so I can track it on my nutrition page!

Member Since: 2/25/2013

SparkPoints: 23,664

Fitness Minutes: 17,045

My Goals:
1) To be able to walk naked without my my thighs rubbing and slowing me down!

2) Get back into all those jeans I have stashed on the top shelf of my closet!

3) Maintain a healthy "diet" for all of my days.

4) Keep moving the way SparkPeople has taught me!!!





My Program:
Eat 1200 - 1500 calories daily within recommended nutrient ranges

Sleep 8 hours each night on a regular schedule

Wake up and comlete 30 - 45 minutes of cardio 5 - 6 days a week via elliptical trainer, recumbent bicycle or brisk walking, depending on the weather!

Strength train/tone 4 - 5 days a week with resistance moves, TotalGym and/or light weights.

On days I am pressed for time I use Jillian Michaels 30-Day Shred workout DVD to cover cardio and toning. It only takes 30 minutes, burns about 400 calories (for me) and it's a great workout.

Personal Information:
I'm a Nebraska girl transplanted in Arizona as of 1987.

I choose to eat organic and I WANT MY FOODS LABLED!

I have been a vegetarian for 25+ years and have been vegan off and on for the last 4.

I am married, have adult children and I work from home.

I enjoy red wine.

And I choose to be happy!

Other Information:
Tie dye is my favorite color, patchouli and wet dirt (from new rain) are my favorite scents and Rosemary Gladstar is one of my hero's.

Thanks for the Personal Trainer. emoticon Sadly, I do need it as much as you do...I've been slacking just as much as you, I believe. *rolling eyes* (Haven't been able to get outside much with all the damn snow and below freezing temps...in hibernation mode.) Love, love, love Rodney and Colleen...they're great teachers and lovely motivation.

My yogi on the beach background is my daily motivation. emoticon
