Take chances. It's YOUR plan. It doesn't have to look like anyone else's plan. If it doesn't work for you, let it go. Experiment. Enjoy your journey.

Important Things to Remember:
1. Keep your plan simple. Do not complicate it with a bunch of rules that make it difficult.
2. Don't expect perfection. No guilt.
3. Expect plateaus.
4. Don't get in a rush.
5. Listen to your body.
6. Never give up on yourself.
7. Keep it fun.

It is your journey. It can be anything you create it to be. You set up the guidelines. You can change them as you go.

My Goals:
My Reason to be Healthy...
Independence! To take care of myself.

My Program:
Nutrition goals
Intermittent fasting and one-meal-a-day (IF and OMAD) don't tell me what to eat. They tell me when to eat.
It has made a sustainable difference in my journey. It is a healthy way to live. Fasting lets my body switch from go mode to repair mode. (There are many kinds of fasts.)

1. While I may eat what I want on OMAD, it's important to strive for balance. Get enough protein. Listen to my body. Stop eating when approaching full.
2. Eat fruits and vegetables.
3. Make water the beverage of choice. Reach for black coffee or tea when I want something besides water.
4. Because of health issues, I avoid sugar.
5. IF and OMAD help me avoid grazing all day (or night!) or reaching for junky snack foods.

Other goals:

Personal Information:
My walk with the Lord keeps me centered. I have learned much through the years that have sent my roots deep. I look forward to the day when I will see Jesus. My family and friends are very important and precious. I love to read and write, and pursue creative interests. I used to travel and still love exploring the world in other ways.
