Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I'm a 23 year old college student who has been at this weight for most of my adolescent years. Even though i'm content with my current frame, I know how much healthier (emotionally, physically, mentally) I would be if I became fit. Breast cancer at an early age runs in my family. Transitioning to a lifelong healthy and active lifestyle is my lifetime goal. I don't want to be skinny, I want to be slim, fit, and healthy! Christ and faith have a huge role in my life and I know that my headway this far has all been due to the glory of Christ and his unlimited love, patience, and compassion for me.
I'd love to make friends with other SP and do anything I can to help build you up on your journey!
All the best love,
start:: 165 (11/31/12)
Short term goal:
11/31/12-12/21: lose 5 lbs 165
complete 2nd 1/2 marathon 12/9/12 by 2:20
Michael Pollan's Philosophy: " Eat food. Mostly plants. Not too much."
I've limited all processed foods as much as I can ( almost completely out). I have eliminated fry foods and all sweeters except stevia and the occasional honey. I have unsweetened nondairy milk (soy, almond, rice, etc).
Brkfst: 1/2 oatmeal & 2tsb flax meal & stevia or raisins & dash of cinnamon or a fruit smoothie with 2tsb flax meal, h20 based, cinamon, two frozen fruits and a scoop of veggie protein powder
lunch: medium salad with veggies & lowfat dressing( less than 2tsb) with Boca meatless strips
- at least 3 fruits or vegs
-canteen filled of water
-Your body is a temple, keep it clean, pure & holy.
- if you aren't hungry enough to have an apple, then you aren't hungry
-No choice ( i.e as far as having just one bite of the No no foods or missing exercise)
-Willpower is a muscle, the more you use it the more it gets stro
I enjoy participating in 10ks. I'm training at the moment for a 1/2 marathon. If you are a runner, please share your advice ;)

I totally love Pinterest! But I have to keep myself from staying on there all day lol! So much stuff to look at :) I've decided to keep up with my spark habits again, because I realized that tracking my food is the best way for me to be held accountable for what I eat. I have to say, it's been going well, as I've already lost 3 pounds. Thanks for all of your support!
