Listen to your body!

This is sometimes the hardest thing to do. We just want to follow what's been laid out by someone else and have it work.
However, if you really tune in to your body it will help guide you to success!
Stop eating when your body is full. Taking your time and being mindful of what you are eating...

Water, water, water, protein

So far I have lost over 75 lbs since January 2017. I started at 241 lbs and now weigh 164.4 lbs with 14 more lbs to get to goal. I feel fantastic and believe me, everything is easier when you are at a normal weight. Walking is easier, buying clothes is easier (and more fun) playing with the grandk...

Never give up

Keep trying and keep starting over eventually we will get it and we will succeed. There is a love hate relationship we have within ourselves and once you love the hate you will stop giving up.

Track Food, Exercise and Stats

I use the SP Nutrition tracker, fitbit tracker for exercise and a notebook where I post and journal my stats regarding blood pressure, heart rate, how I am feeling, any problems that I can articulate on a daily basis (weight once a week). If I don't track it and keep a journal, I tend to get off pla...

Sugar is TOXIC!

I watched the movie "That Sugar Film" and it completely changed my perspective on sugar. This movie was produced in Australia. It is sometimes entertaining and sometimes uncomfortable to watch because the truth about sugar and it's hold on us is frightening. The absolute power and strangle hold that...

Walk early today

I get up at 5AM, not because I want to, it just happens. No matter what time I go to bed I'm awake at 5. I have started to get dressed, put on my sneakers and get in a 2 mile walk before coffee or breakfast. I am even beginning to enjoy the quiet and me time.

Making Exercise Fun

I already love exercise, but some things are simply more fun than others. Number one Rule is to keep trying things until you find something you love to do. If you don't like it you won't stick with it. I love martial arts movies and grew up watching those old Chinese kung fu movies. So naturally...

DONT BEAT YOURSELF UP

Yes, staying positive is very important but one thing over the years I have learned is not to judge yourself by someone else achievements. Be genuinely happy for them. I remember trying to figure out why (in a specific diet class) I would adhere to the diet exact, exercise and then came the weigh...

Whole Food Plant Based

I recently watched a documentary called "Forks over Knives". It definitely got me thinking (and curious) so I watched a few more that were similar. What the Health, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, PurePlant Nation and Supersize me. That was a lot of powerful information and I started researching and t...
