I've been making small lifestyle improvements over a period of more than 10 years. Looking back over my life I realize that I can thank good genes for getting me as far as I am! I don't think I've EVER really lived a healthy lifestyle. Even when I was thinner or in better shape or both I got there by some really sketchy means. No, I was never bulimic, just never ate healthily when I was getting thin or staying thin. I smoked for many years. I still drink more alcohol than I should, though I am MUCH improved over my past.

I am a realist. I'm not interested in temporary fixes; however, I will only make permanent changes that are convenient and relatively painless. Great habits and routines have to be doable or they don't get done.

My progress so far:
~ Quit smoking
~ Cut alcohol consumption by 90%
~ Upped my water intake from almost none to just about enough
~ Cut my stress and anxiety levels enormously
~ Found the healthiest food lifestyle and will follow it for life
~ Improved the quality of the food I buy
~ Lost 35 pounds pretty easily
~ Worked many small fitness routines into my lifestyle
~ Improved my thyroid health

What's left?

~ Routinely getting enough sleep
~ Creating a better work/life balance
~ Losing 30 pounds of fat
~ Becoming truly active in the Primal Blueprint spirit!

My Goals:
I've never liked making goals, because once you reach them you just have to make new ones. Therefore I now have Intentions, rather than Goals. I mean, you can have Goals and never, ever work towards them. Intentions, on the other hand, imply a little more action, though not necessarily in any specific timeframe. Suits me to a T! My intention is to Be Happy and Live Long and Well.

My Program:
I'm permanently low carb. I am well nourished without much of the empty calories of grains, starches, or sugars. I feel better in most ways than I ever had in the past!

I am trying to be more active, as opposed to being an "exerciser". Exercise for its own sake bores me, therefore I won't do much of it. A few minutes a week of light weights, a lot of walking and running stairs while at work, and household upkeep will have to do me.

Personal Information:
59, happily married, two terrific sons and two adorable cats. Love me some video games!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Yes, I think kids who know how to sneak into your house to wake up your kids are the same kids that have refrigerator rights. Lol Hope you have a great week!

    Woubbie, I found a comment on another member's page that you posted to. I'm stealing it to put on my page. LOL it's about learning small things that help you to a healthier lifestyle.

    that's what I'm trying to do, learn something new. right now it's to wait between each meal at least 3 hours. that's hard. and to drink duing those three hours instead of putting anything in my mouth. some days I fail. but the more I can do it the better off I'll be.
