Craving Good Things Now..and the Good Life!

Sunday, April 21, 2013

I look forward to the healthy foods now....my body craves them. Can't get enough greens and raw veggies!!! I am 59 and never felt this good! When I was in my 20's I smoked and drank almost no water...just diet soda. Never ate in a healthy way. Quit smoking in 1997 and gained a lot of weight, so didn't even feel very good then, but now.....Heaven! I feel like I could run a foot race! Over the years there have been enough "exercise times" that I have a lot of muscle mass already (but you can't see my muscles for the fat, lol) so I was in ok cardio shape before I got here, but I would either eat in a semi-healthy manner or exercise....not both. Thanks, to you Sparks and to Sparkpeople for making this lifestyle change so easy!!

  Thanks a million, Beth!!! Your encouragement is greatly appreciated!!!!

So glad your body is telling you what it needs!! That is half of the battle!!! Every day is full of opportunities to feel better and have more energy!! Energy out, energy in!! Using energy makes energy!

Just at the beginning of my journey, have to force myself to hold it down, exercise-wise. If I overdo it now, then when the plateau comes, there will be no way for me to increase my activity. Feel like I could move my house!!!

I used to think that fat was what God put in food to make it good....now I know that food (the healthy food, that is) is packed with energy!!!

Cheers,
Judy

.´*.¸.•´♥ Welcome to Spark Blogging!

On thing I would suggest is: Keep collecting Spark Friends like candy!! It is calorie free and they always give you something to "chew on"!!

You can just "friend" them...no need to ask. We are friendly and don't bite!

You can find motivation and inspiration from everyone here, even those that are struggling (because you know how they feel!!) Welcome new people, Join teams, blog, join challenges, blog, be excited, blog. And did I mention: blog? The future fabulous you will want to look back at your journey and will want to encourage others!! When the excitement wanes (it WILL!!) put down your pom poms and lurk in the background, (but don't leave and don't do too much damage) and wait for the tide to turn...pick up your oars and keep rowing.

You can do this!!
