I can always tell when I am getting serious because the food tracker always comes back into play. I feel a need to get more serious about my food choices especially the fruits and vegetables. I have been to the doctor more times than I want in the last month and truly believe that most of the issues could have been eliminated by eating more fruits and veggies. That is one of the reasons I came to Spark to begin with. I enjoy them, but don't usually go for them first. I am working hard at retraining my mind. I don't want to be tied to medications and have a limited type of foods I can eat. That isn't freedom. I have always said if I can't enjoy the ride then I am not going to take it. I just have to learn to enjoy something different. Just because Mama served it doesn't mean it was what I preferred or that it truly was the best thing for me even if she was a home economist. I don't want to get five years or five months down the road and say that I wish I had done something different. I am choosing something different starting today. I want to enjoy life and I cannot do that if I cannot eat what I want and that what I want is actually going to keep me healthy when I am old. I just wish I had an healthy attitude towards health forty years ago.
