Healthier living for a healthier me!

Hello, my name is Amber!

I try and concentrate on my strengths, my blessings, and all the good things in my life. It's worth it!

I was diagnosed with gluten intolerance on 10/08/10 (my fourth wedding anniversary!) which totally changed the way I eat and look at food. I'm feeling better and finding out the random other foods that just don't sit well with me.

Hello, my name is Amber!

I try and concentrate on my strengths, my blessings, and all the good things in my life. It's worth it!

I was diagnosed with gluten intolerance on 10/08/10 (my fourth wedding anniversary!) which totally changed the way I eat and look at food. I'm feeling better and finding out the random other foods that just don't sit well with me.

It's frustrating. Food allergies are readily accepted, but food intolerances are pushed to the side. Because so many people claim an "intolerance" when they are really just following a diet trend.

If I could eat gluten, I would. Gluten-free products try their best, but nothing beats the real thing. I'm still working on discovering the various things that trigger digestive pain for me.

Whatever your journey, whatever your path, I wish you success. Losing weight/getting healthy isn't easy, but it's worth it.

My Goals:
My goal is simply to be healthier. Losing the weight is a big motivator to treat my body better.


Then to continue on!

My Program:
My husband, Aubrey, and I like taking walks together.

We were going to quit the gym for the summer, but I was missing it terribly. There are just too many excuses for me without it. "It's too hot to work out" "I'm tired" etc. But once I'm at the gym; I'm there. All excuses must fade away because I'm paying for it darn it! I have to get my money's worth! Luckily another gym was running a deal so now we're back at the gym and it's not costing as much as before.

We also both enjoy yoga, pilates, and tennis.

"BEAUTIFUL WOMAN AWARD"

You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!!

Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!

Again, Congratulations Beautiful!

Wow! Sorry to hear about your injury. It's understandable why you'd want to take it easy. I'm glad to be back on track. Life is finally a little less hectic for me. We sold our house and moved closer to my work (25 min commute instead of 1hr). My hubby is now a stay at home dad, so no more babysitter stress. We basically live pay check to pay check- but I'm happier now then before!
