January 01, 2019 - Is this the year magic will happen? Get Lean in 2019. It won't happen unless I make it happen! One is not suppose to give up. You just pick yourself up and brush yourself off and try again. Late 2017 I started watching Food Documentaries. They did motivate and inspire me and I managed to get to ONEDERLAND.

I do encourage all my SparkFriends to watch a few of the Food Doc's. There are quite a few of them out there. I don't know how anyone can watch these Food Doc's without wanting to make better food choices, not just for themselves but their whole families. I definitely will be eating more freggies. And cutting way back on my sugar intake in 2019.

I am starting 2019 with BLC39 Spicy Sparkologist Team and Leader of the STOP Team. I will continue my FitBit Challenges with FitBit and SP friends. I will also continue my virtual walks at I am going to try to make use of the Food and Exercise Trackers too.

I am from MN originally. I do not miss the snow and cold winters. I do miss my family.

    I don't take the turmeric/black pepper straight...I take it in capsule form and you can get it with the pepper already added. There are so many things like that...I don't know if the stuff is more potent the way you have been taking it, but i don't like the tastes of all that stuff. I also take cayenne and because of the heat, I take it with ginger, in capsules of course. Glad you can stay mobile and have good things to do! I have just begun this season's mowing...and of course, must still keep walking. Glad you are taking good care of yourself. emoticon

    Thanks for the beach vacation SparkGoodie! We plan to visit our favorite beach this summer. I appreciate your thinking of me. No issue re: Fitbit replies. Just glad to know you are OK. Busy is much better for us than bored and I know you stay so active on many levels! Good for YOU!

    That sciatic nerve stuff is miserable. Turmeric with black pepper is said to be more effective than turmeric alone. I take it. Now using cbd oil from Hempworx sure your oil has no filler ingredients like olive or vegetable oil. I love that you can be swimming so frequently. Good that you keep moving! I have begun the seasonal mowing here. That and walking are my main exercise Happy to hear from you. Stay well. Love, ASTA

    emoticon Believe it or not, I NEVER get manicures or pedicures. Never have been into girlie stuff. I much prefer the virtual kind. Never been to a spa either. Might try that sometime just for the massage though.
