Nutrition Plan:
I track all my meals and snacks daily, aiming for low carb/ high fiber (net carbs less than 100 grams), low sodium (1500-1800 mg), and 1200-1600 calories. I make at least one new recipe each week to keep things varied and interesting. I try to keep only healthy food in the house, but sometimes my husband will insist on having goodies. I am working at improving my willpower.


Improving my health is most important to me. I have a few serious issues I am dealing with, and I'm finding that SparkPeople is the right tool for me to deal with these issues in a healthy way.

One of my favorite sayings: You don't have to be perfect in order to be successful. ~Anonymous In the past, I've been so hard on myself that I don't maintain a program and give up. For over 3 years now, I have been recognizing that I am making progress. When I'm not perfect, I get back in line.

Since starting with SP in July 2012, I've brought my blood sugar and blood pressure down dramatically, with both numbers being in the healthy range now. I am exercising 6 times a week, for 45-90 minutes at a time. I am eating well for the most part, but really need to get better control of night snacking. I am finally sleeping well. I am feeling better and more hopeful than I have in a long time.

A trainer, that's great. Can't wait to hear how it goes.

Susan, thanks for stopping by my blog, "Weigh In After Vacation". I think the Chicken Noodle Soup saved my butt on vacation. It's too bad I can't take it on all trips!

How is the BLC coming along this time?
I am going to sign up for the next round since summer is winding down and I'll have more time to devote to it.
Have a great day!
