I'm looking for like minded people wanting to focus on and improve their total well being, so come on! Join me in the quest for a healthier and longer life :)

I fall....I get up....I fall....I get up.....seems to be the story of my life and happily so!! I'm a yo-yo dieter, losing and gaining the same 5 pounds over months spans...I'm working on changing that.

My goals are to:
post my menu weekly
log my foods daily
walk 1 hour every day and the days I don't walk do Hip Hop Abs
gallon of water a more coffee in the morning :( for a bit...
stretch every night
list 5 positive things in my life a day

It's time to stop focusing on the negative and embracing the positive in my life. I am not a number on the scale or clothing, I am me, I am just as God made me. I am ready to embrace that person hiding inside.

Member Since: 1/10/2008

My Goals:
to stop behaving like I am the garbage disposal. PERIOD.

to look in the mirror and not hate who/what I see

My Program:
to come up with a weekly menu that I can stick with.

going back to what I know:
40% protein
30% carbs
30% fat

1 gallon of water a day:
**2 glasses before I leave the house
**one cup coffee finished by 9am
**16.9 oz bottle water rest of the day, mark the top with every refill, it takes 8 bottles to equal a gallon

I make custom cakes in my "spare" time

I have had 3 knee reconstructions so running and anything stressful on the knee is not for me :(

    Listen, Hon.

    You don't need to lose those "last 10 pounds."

    You don't even really need to worry about eating more greens or less fat or more fruit.

    You need to throw the doors wide open to Life!

    You need to let Light and Love and Limitlessness flood into your world again.

    They were there once but someone said you couldn't or shouldn't or didn't have what it took so you started worrying about pimples instead of passions, dress sizes instead of dreams.

    Food is just the fuel you need for that gorgeous machine you're moving around in, but you... you feed on Life.

    Go for a walk today, and let the colors and sounds and smells of spring feed you. Nourish yourself with the idea that the people walking past you are perfect in every way and that you are the smokin' hot reflection of the things you think, feel and believe in. Feast on the idea that the thing more important than the bulge of your belly is your belief in the goodness of others.

    There are children being born with cancer, families taking cover from bombs and poor men begging for food in the street. The world needs women with the courage to love in the face of adversity.

    Start with yourself.

    All my admiration,

    The Diva (excerpt from Teeny Bikini's page.)

    Thought I would pass it along to all my Diva friends.

    How are you doing? I have been having a blast going to a kickboxing class. I went 3 times last week. Unfortuately my knee (s) have not enjoyed it and now my bad knee is quite swollen. Will need to take it easy this week. It is so hard for me not to exercise. I love it so much. Oh well guess I will just focus on my food this week. :)

    It is better to live one day as a Lion than a thousand as a Lamb.

    Let's all Roar this year,
