I've decided to add blogging to my Spark journey. This picture was taken while I visited an exhibit of photographer Annie Liebovitz's work. It was a forty year respective, a master set of many of her famous and not-so-famous photos. It made me think about what my master set might be. I've had so many dramatic changes in my life in the past few years. Many of the things that I thought defined me and my life are no longer part of it.
At first this was terrifying. Now I feel a sense of space and a sense of possibility. I think the extra weight I carry keeps me from completely fulfilling those possibilities. So I am committing to gradual, healthy change. I do well with exercise but I think I am deluding myself about how much I actually eat. Food is my comfort when I am anxious and I think perhaps I eat more from habit than need.
So I am going to learn about nutrition and begin to use the food tracker. I'm going to explore eliminating some foods from my diet that I think I might have a sensitivity to, like wheat. And I am going to pay attention to when and what I eat. I plan to be very gentle with myself as I do this.
Oh, and I bought myself a new SLR-D camera for Christmas so I'll be taking some photographs of my own!
Happy New Year to you all and best wishes for a happy, healthy, fit 2013!
