My Goals:
Three years from now: I have a dog, maybe a larger family than that. I do work that makes me happy while leaving me mentally intact. My doctor says things like, "You're in great health." I am intentional with my food (dessert is not a daily meal, I make much of my meals from scratch, I grow or locally support many of the ingredients, I am grateful for this)

Three month goal (10/16/16) based on my desires - Remove: desserts are weekly. Add: Weekly (fun) grocery shopping

Goal for this week (what's left of it): "Superfood" once a day; Pick a "no dessert" day and stick to it
Goal for next week (7/25-7/31): Consistent good breakfast choices; Get a vegetable from the Farmer's Market

Rewards: $5 per superfood (have fun!); go out to a movie, go for a long walk, buy a CD on the No dessert day.
Buy a special breakfast bowl from a thrift shop. Buy a nice wine to pair with your sexy new vegetable.

My Program:
Wellness is a spectrum that is deeply personal. When I find myself eating processed foods, snacks, fried foods, desserts and ice cream daily then my first step is to introduce lower calorie substitutes to wean my palate back to normal. Step two is to introduce nutritionally dense foods like fruits, vegetables and whole grains to crowd out the junk. Moving forward I get a little more particular: local foods from my town. Less alcohol. fewer sweets, even fruity ones.

Physically I know that cardio makes me hungry which is OK, but I am looking to lose some weight at least in the beginning and so I will stick to strength training and biking, which isn't as hungry-making. I have strength and endurance goals rather than inches or pound goals because otherwise I go crazy. I don't mind being fat (I tell myself) if I am fit.
