I want to get serious about healthy eating. Having said 'serious', I think it will be an adventure, and hopefully a lot of fun with a lot of great benefits!

I really want to turn around my “eating what I want because it tastes good or is convenient" mentality to that of "eating to live" ... learning more about what my body needs for optimal health and finding healthy and tasty options to fulfill those health needs -- and doing this with the abundance of tasty foods we’re blessed to have!

****************************************

Hi, fellow Spark People members. This is such a GREAT site!

Here is my plan. I hope I can share with many of you along this journey.

+ Incorporate a lot more whole and home-cooked foods into my diet, and reduce processed foods down to a minimal amount.

+++ Keep busy in the evenings to AVOID UNHEALTHY SNACKING. This is the difficult one for me. I snack out of boredom --- but I know there are so many other, better ways to spend my time.

+ Plan ahead. Planning my meals the day before is really helpful, I have found in the past.

+ Log in to Spark daily to receive motivation and to interact with my fellow Spark'ers.

+ Get back to exercising. With spring here, walking is a good option.

After years of a relatively sedentary lifestyle and WAY too many bags of potato chips and other assorted junk food, and snacking my way through the evenings, I am making a goal to get back on to the right track, and to start looking after my health through nutritious eating & exercise. From some short periods of time when I have succeeded in the past, I believe that Spark People will be a REALLY big factor in achieving success!

In addition to feeling better about myself and improving my health, a huge benefit from being part of the SP community is getting to know many of you along the way. This is really what keeps me coming back to the SP website day after day. I appreciate the openness, honesty, and support of my fellow 'Sparkers'.

I'm happy to have the support of SparkPeople friends, and am looking forward to connecting with people on this site.

+++++ Let's achieve our goals together!!

I live in Canada, and am single. My cat, Roscoe, is curious about everything and makes me smile every day. I'm a Christian, and find inspiration and comfort in the Bible. I love music, reading, patio gardening, finding the humour in everyday situations, and spending time with friends. I love going out for breakfast on the weekend. I'm learning to knit and crochet.

I enjoy interacting with other Spark members -- feel free to add me as a friend if you like!

    Sheila,
    Glad you are back. I haven't been doing the best the past 6 months. I am planning my goals for 2015. One is to track my food everyday. Eating more fruits and veggies is also on the plan. emoticon at least 8 glasses a day! Thanks for checking out the photo. It was the only professional one I have had in years.

    Thanks so much for your kind words on my Spark Page about my blog “Dear Self”

    I’ve been doing really well since I wrote that note to myself and am so glad it’s having such a positive impact so many other Spark People!

    Please consider following the link in my latest blog, “I Double Dog Dare You!” The simple little “tweak” I’ve learned there has changed my life in many positive ways in only two weeks - I am so excited about it and really want share this science with as many as I can!

    I hope you feel the same way!
