Aloha ~ I'm DJ ... a happily retired 63 year old committing to living a healthy lifestyle from now on.

I've been on most every diet out there the past few decades ... losing lots and lots of weight ... and regaining weight because I could not 'stay' on those diets endlessly. The last 3 years I've ditched the 'dieting' and have been pursuing 'eating healthy'. For me, this means following vegetarian/vegan plans and also Ayurveda principles all of which I find to greatly improve (and sometimes reverse) my health conditions.

I am somewhat limited recently for exercising with knee and joint pain so slowly building up my exercise options with Tai Chi, Yoga, chair exercises and other limited mobility workouts. When I'm feeling up to par I also do lots of gardening and yard work which I love.

My Goals:
~Eat Healthy/Be Healthy
~Be more active with yoga, tai chi, walking
~Increase strength and flexibility
~Cultivate a healthy mind and body!

My Program:
My program is healthy LIVING! No counting, no tracking, no measuring ... just back to REAL foods, moderate daily exercise/activity, taking conscious time and effort to live life in a simple balanced way in all aspects - mind, body, spirit!!!!! and having gratitude for all things!

I am learning (through Ayurveda) to eat what my body needs to heal and thrive...not for my personal 'cravings'. Food IS my medicine ... I am thankfully, gratefully prescription free and intend to continue to honor my body with choices that will allow me to stay that way! I have experienced lowering my blood pressure, reducing inflammation and pain, improving my eye sight and hearing, and more simply from changing what, how and when I eat.
