December 9, 2013
Going back to a mostly low fat vegetarian/vegan diet. I say mostly because I am not going to freak out over the occasional fish, meat, or fat. I won�t make a habit of it. The low carb diet just didn�t work for me. I didn�t lose weight, didn�t have more energy, and didn�t have less joint stiffness. And I am working on the exercise.

August 1, 2013
After losing over 22 pounds from the middle of March 2011 to August 2011 by eating a low fat vegan diet (Eat To Live). While not being 100% perfect, it was fairly easily and didn�t find the lack of meat and dairy as hard as I had thought it would be. However, my cholesterol numbers jumped up dramatically and my doctor was unhappy. After a year and a half, I didn�t really want to go without meat and dairy for the rest of my life and it is extremely difficult to maintain socially in this part of the country. So, I started having meat, dairy, and oil more often. Over the next year I gained 6 pounds back.

Next I switched to eating a low-carb (Paleo type) diet and within two weeks my cholesterol number had dropped significantly. My doctor was happy, but the weight started back up.


December 28, 2011 - I am proud of myself for the progress I have made in the last half of 2011. I have lost 22+ pounds by mostly following the Eat To Live plan and find it fairly easy to do. Now, I need to add muscle while losing 5 more pounds.

I need to find an exercise plan that I will stick to the same way I found Eat To Live. Something I enjoy enough to do continuously. I need muscle strength to both look better and to relieve the back pain.

Mini-challenge for you: "TIDY UP"

Set aside 5 or 10 minutes every day .... to straighten up something, whether it be your desk, a cluttered table, junk drawer, or the kitchen counter. Return items to their rightful places, recycle, and put papers you need to go through in a folder for later.

A chaotic or disorganized space makes everyday tasks seem harder because you feel like you're always running behind. Cleaning up even one small physical space can help clear mental space, allowing you to be more efficient the rest of the day.

Your mini-challenge ... There are 3 Important Things to Remember this week:

Every good thing you do for yourself is a step toward good health ... whether it is moving more, getting more sleep, or eating clean.

Don't get caught up in the "all-or-noting" mentality trap. Ten minutes here & there really DOES add up, and IS better than nothing.

Set reasonable, small goals. And then when you have achieved them, set another small goal .... and continue on your health journey.

Little mini-challenge for you this week:

"Go Faster, Go Longer, Go Harder, or Do More.” In other words, speed up your workout, workout longer, push yourself harder, go further, or do more reps. Whether you are walking, biking, swimming,or strength training . . . whatever exercise you choose to do this week, do it with more intensity.

Push yourself just a little more ... to see just a little more result. A little goes a long way! emoticon emoticon
