July update!
I am on Holiday from the 6th-26th. Will check in as much as possible. I will be tracking food and exercise and try to write my blog as much as I can. Have a great July and having my birthday in Spain it looks like :)~

Eating vegan as much as I can to reduce the sodium further, walking at least 90 minutes a day and getting back to 6-9 miles 5 times a week. Working on my strength training and tracking my steps each day. Getting into hiking more since it is so fun ...

Eating vegan as much as I can to reduce the sodium further, walking at least 90 minutes a day and getting back to 6-9 miles 5 times a week. Working on my strength training and tracking my steps each day. Getting into hiking more since it is so fun & a nifty workout. I drink tea, water, coffee, some soy. Seldom drink soda, never smoke & very rarely drink, no white products, avoid sugar and pretty much all dairy. I don't care for sweets too much. Eating more of the fruits I can tolerate well like apples, peaches, strawberries, oranges, red grapes, bananas in breads or smoothies.

Not really looking to lose much more weight for the most part (in maintenance) since I am within the range for my height and my clothes are feeling and looking quite good lately. I started at 143 and I am at 130 pounds now which is about right for me. I feel stronger and have more energy and want to gain muscle and greater health.

I joined Spark People, to keep gaining motivation to stay with exercise & a good nutrition, its a lifestyle. Plus my mood is always great after I exercise and I can see and feel the benefits of working out regularly! Always trying to get in the right amount of sleep since I deal with insomnia.

Making sure I am tracking, calories out are more than calories in for the day, keeping calm and even, practising meditation, deep stretching and proper breathing. Each month I will have short term goals and set long term goals. Also making sure I have time for my writing, journaling, reading, cooking, learning foreign languages, making sure I am taking care with my emotional health and having fun with my life~

Happy Thursday! Whatever you have been thinking about doing, but have started yet, turn it into "I Did It" Thursday! It sure feels good to do what you know needs to be done.

From what I have read depression is related to not eating enough magnesium foods. Also keeping your nervous system stable with enough calcium, and Vitamin D. Also being low in iron, or protein. If you eat too many sugary items or have too much caffeine, or chocolate: your emotions become erratic. Take3 care sweetie. eva

Hi, thank you for stopping by and leaving a "Hello" on my page. Your blog really lifted my spirits today. Happy I could be part of your day.

I see we have a few things in common: enjoy history and travel documentaries, reading about medicine, cooking, dancing and having a Russian Blue cat named Smokey.

I'll being thinking of you today when I am belly dancing.
