My name is Freedom, I'm 37 soon to be 38 a business owner, and I manage a division of another company. I have 3 kids, 3 dogs, 5 sugar gliders and a cat. And last but not least I'm getting married in September!!! I've been away for a long time but now I'm back, trying to get my health back! I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in January, and I have chosen not to take disease modifying drugs. I also have Fibromyalgia(FMS) which makes it very difficult for me to exercise to get the weight off. I am currently obsessed with learning how to live *truly* healthy. I thought the spark diet was healthy, but I've found out otherwise. Being truly healthy means getting back to nature and eating only what "God" gave us. absolutely no artificial products, no dairy, no processed foods and no refined sugars. You would be surprised, at how many "natural" foods sold in stores have unnatural stuff in them. I read each and every label of the products I pick up. I am blogging about everything that I am learning, if you want follow my progress and get great healthy recipes and info subscribe to my blog here... http://freedomlivingnatural.blogspot

My Goals:
Wow I should've updated a long time ago. The spark diet wasnt working for me. I lost those initial water lbs but then I gained 2 back. I stuck to it religiously for 2 mos. with exercise and only lost .5 inch. I *generally* work out 6 times/week, and I'm sticking to a totally natural diet that no longer includes, refined sugars, dairy, or processed foods. It's delicious! I'm learning to cook all over again and have a new appreciation of the food I'm eating. I feel like a better mother too knowing I'm feeding my children only healthy nutritious meals, and especially enjoy making them totally healthy homemade breakfast from scratch. Made with whole grains and fresh fruit. It's much better than filling them up on sugary cereals every morning before school.

If you think eating truely healthful is bland, you're wrong! Just take a look at some of the awesome recipes I've found or tweaked to be truely healthy, go to this link....


My Program:
Eating REAL healthy foods(not what most people think are healthy, but what is ACTUALLY healthy) Exercise a min. of 3-4 x's per week, but want to get 6 days a week. 6 days of cardio, 3 days of pilates, yogo or other strength training.
