Life is the journey. Wellness is just part of the daily routine. Thanks, FlyLady!

I've been making small lifestyle improvements over a period of more than 10 years. Looking back over my life I realize that I can thank good genes for getting me as far as I am! I don’t think I’ve EVER really lived a healthy lifestyle. Even when I was thinner or in better shape or both I got there by some really sketchy means. No, I was never bulimic, just never ate healthily when I was getting thin or staying thin. I smoked for many years. I still drink more beer than I should, though I am ...
I've been making small lifestyle improvements over a period of more than 10 years. Looking back over my life I realize that I can thank good genes for getting me as far as I am! I don’t think I’ve EVER really lived a healthy lifestyle. Even when I was thinner or in better shape or both I got there by some really sketchy means. No, I was never bulimic, just never ate healthily when I was getting thin or staying thin. I smoked for many years. I still drink more beer than I should, though I am MUCH improved over my past.

I am a realist. I’m not interested in temporary “fixes”; however, I will only make permanent changes that are convenient and relatively painless. Great habits and routines have to be doable or they don't get done.
My progress so far:
~ Quit smoking
~ Cut alcohol consumption by 90%
~ Upped my water intake from almost none to just about enough
~ Cut my stress levels enormously
~ Found the healthiest food lifestyle and will follow it for life
~ Improved the quality of the food I buy
~ Lost 32 pounds easily
~ Worked many small fitness routines into my lifestyle
~ Improved my thyroid health
What's left?
~ Better managing stress and anxiety
~ Getting enough sleep more regularly
~ Creating a better work/life balance
~ Losing 30 pounds of fat

My Goals:
I've never liked making goals, because once you reach them you just have to make new ones. Therefore I now have Intentions, rather than Goals. I mean, you can have Goals and never, ever work towards them. Intentions, on the other hand, imply a little more action, though not necessarily in any specific timeframe. Suits me to a T! My intention is to Be Happy and Live Long and Well.

My Program:
I'm permanently low carb. I am well nourished without much of the empty calories of grains, starches, or sugars. I feel better in most ways than I ever had in the past!

I am trying to be more active, as opposed to being an "exerciser". Exercise for its own sake bores me, therefore I won't do much of it. A few minutes a week of light weights, a lot of walking and running stairs while at work, and household upkeep will have to do me.

Personal Information:
57, happily married, two terrific sons and two adorable cats. Love me some video games!

Other Information:

Thank you for your comment on my blog today. Burning the paper reminds me of church camp when I was a child. We wrote our sin on a paper and everyone burned the paper in the camp fire. This was to indicate to us how God treats our sin when we ask for forgiveness. Thank you... you make a great point.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. I would have to add packets for all that water. I am currently just filling up my minion cup at the water fountain.

Thank you for your comment on my blog - I am feeling good about not turning to food for comfort, just sad about the friendship loss. Also thank you for all you do for the Atkins (and other low carb plans) group. I am enjoying the support there! emoticon emoticon
