Each new day is a path of wonder, a different invitation.

I am unlimited.
I take responsibility for my life.
My every action is a conscious choice.
I can accomplish anything good that I truly set my mind on.
I keep focus, and persevere.

Mistakes make the exceptional happen! Nothing is so bad that we cannot learn much from it. Remain strong.

Enjoyed the 2014 Summer 5% challenge so much I signed up for the Fall 2014 5% challenge. Didn't reach my 5 % goal but learned much more about moi! I've lost over 20 pounds since being on Spark and have had a gamut of physical challenges which I realize I may have used as justifications, some anyways, for getting stuck at this plateau. My "favorite" challenge, only because I find it so darn difficult is food tracking.

My goals:
loose 8 pounds and keep it off.
strive to follow the 80/20 rule. Leave the table, after every meal, 80% full. Find/ask for STRONG inspirations.
increase energy.
nutrition and fitness will take a priority to ALL screen time. It takes me longer to accomplish most everything. Balance love, spirit, enlightenment as primaries.

My Nutrition Plan:
Mindfully eat nutritionally healthy food in smaller portions. While following the Spark Guide I have some health related restrictions that are a priority as well as improving balances in nutrition I found I was missing last challenge ie folate. Water is a must and usually easy to achieve. Track, track, track!!!

Fitness:

My level of chronic pain determines what gets done. Fortunately walking is usually beneficial in working through the pain or gardening is meditative and allows me to accept the pain. There are days where all I can do is lay down, sleep if possible.

My Fitness Plan:
Exercise every day, depending on pain level. Walking*, yoga, garden, dance with the parrots and play with Tau'ri. Fit a long hike in once a month. Take a break when pain demands. Fit heavy cleaning as is possible.
*Walk when it’s cold. Walk when it’s hot. Walk when it’s dark. Walk when the sun is rising or setting. Walk when it’s raining. Experience the variability. Life shouldn’t always be a steady 70 degrees. Live a little.

Above all enjoy each day, be grateful for life, have joy, face each moment without fear.

My Goals:
Mindfully eat less, confidently move my body more.

Increase energy.

Decrease my pain with movement, weight loss, yoga, meditation, Chakra awareness, breathing exercises.



My Program:
Start where I am, use what I have, do what I can – it will be enough. Have confidence. Never let fear rule.

Daily:
meditate;
practice yoga;
walk/be physically active;
laugh more ;
help someone;
maintain patience with myself;
achieve inner peace.

Question everything and remain open minded.


Personal Information:
I love the taste of food, but I love the taste of life even better!

I am an avid reader, gardener, nature lover, yogi, water spirit.

We share our home with a Blue & Gold Macaw Senegal, and a Border collie mix. They've all rescued us and our lives are better for that.

I have survived more then many thought possible. Each gift of life has been a unique journey towards self-discovery.

I believe in individuality while being one with the universe.

I know my words, thoughts and feelings have value. I am free to feel my emotions and, being human, usually no longer need to protect my sensitivity.


Other Information:
I am grateful for the life I have.

Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart (Thx TAZIAH)
