"Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know!" Ernest Hemingway This needs to be changed, what a fine line, sigh~ RIP Robin Williams :)~ Have Strength & Power in Self Love...COMMIT BABY!!!!!!

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~

I have learned I cannot do it all at once. But I can do at least one thing every day to make an effort to be healthy.
"Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day-in and day-out." ~Robert Collier
You are doing amazing. Being in the top five for team fitness minutes is inspiring!
Continue to make small efforts every day and it will all add up to success! Together we can do this!!!
