I am not sedentary but I do not get enough exercise. I am increasing my activity level in the new year. I try to eat organic. I am dairy and gluten intolerant. I have been eating plant-based for a couple months. I have been here and back a few times in the last few years. I need to find a lifestyle that works for me.

Member Since: 1/7/2016

Fitness Minutes: 14,853

My Goals:
Feel Strong, Get Healthy. Lose between 40 and 60 lbs. Get into a size 6 (maybe and 8 if it looks good) skinny is not a goal of mine. Increase my activity level so that I feel good. Reduce my blood pressure to stay out of the pre-hypertensive range. Get much much stronger.

My Program:
Eat lots of vegetables. Cut out most processed food. Radically reduce simple refined carbs. I do not add any sugar to anything. I do add a sweetened organic nut creamer to my coffee. Pay attention to what I put in my mouth, getting enough rest and enough water. Walk. Walk. Walk. This time around I am also radically increasing by meatless meals.

Personal Information:
I try not to consume dairy, gluten, or MSG. They are allergy and migraine triggers for me. Since I have been off of them I have been able to discontinue even antihistamines which I have taken since early childhood. I love to cook and am not afraid to try new things. Yes, I can do a complete Italian, Greek, Mexican, or Asian meal without dairy or gluten now let's see how many I can do both organic and meatless :)

Other Information:
I am going to try and upload a lot of pictures. I have always been camera shy and had not even updated my facebook photo in a decade. Feeling comfortable with my appearance is one of my side goals.

    I just joined the Vegan spark team and thought I'd say hi to a few of the other newer members.

    Don't let frustration knock you down.
    Don't let fear stand in your way.
    Don't let time get in your head.
    Who cares how long it takes or how many times you try.
    Your only competition is yourself and when You finally succeed...
    The struggle will all be Worth it.

    Hi, I see that you joined one of the vegan groups I'm in. I friended you back. I've been moving towards vegan a couple of years now, with occasional lapses. It's a different way of eating and cooking that takes getting used to, as I can see you've noticed. Even if you just cut down on the amount of meat you eat, I think that's probably better for your health.

    Welcome back Sunny! I think I’m hitting perimenopause. Have gained about 10 pounds that won’t go away! Lol I’m trying new strategies.

    Glad you are feeing good! Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I had never thought to donate that stuff to a local fire department or police station and we have both relatively close. Already gave these treats away, but next time I am doing that.
