This Sparked Me!

Now is the time I must put my big girl undies on and just do this. I can't act like a kid who wants every poor food choice out there. That attitude will not get me to a healthier place. I'm not a kid. I'm a grown up who has all the information and tools I need to make this happen. It's time I start acting like it.

Eating 5-6 meals a day; getting adequate sleep, eating veggies and fruits daily and healthy food choices at every meal and snack, working out 4-6 days a week, staying organize, shopping adequately, journaling, let others know what I working towards and staying busy on SparkPeople!

    Good advice! I agree. The one good thing about getting older for me is that my tastes in food have changed. I used to hate veggies, but as I get older, I find that they are pretty good. For example, when I was a kid I would run for the hills whenever my mom would make brussel sprouts! The smell alone would gross me out. Now, they are one of my favorite vegs. However, I do occasionally have to act like a kid and have a gummie worm or something equally naughty. Otherwise, I would go crazy.

    Wow! Did you ever get that right. I really have no excuses, I'm 44 now and have the answers. It's time to grow up up.
