Well today is the start. After having read about half of the "Spark" book I realize that I am of the dieter mentality. It is easier for me to deprive and then about a year or two later find myself needing to "diet" again. I know that this is a terrible time but being contrary is in my makeup so perhaps I will be able to get through the holidays on the strength of that alone.
My goal is to continue through my older age at an enhanced level of activity and vigor. I have been blessed with good health and a love of the outdoors and don't feel particularly impaired but I have been feeling un-energetic.
My sister died a week ago (she had juvenile diabetes and it finally destroyed her health.) It makes one realize how short our life is and my personal favorite "this isn't a dress rehearsal."
