Description:My journey of goals, food, exercise, and thoughts toward health and well-being and balance in my life

My Goal:
-To daily eat a healthy responsible food plan without insanity.
-To exercise almost daily,
-to meet my obligations to my self and family without resentment or selfishness,
- to be a healthy weight for me (under 130 lbs)
-To deal with emotions, whether positive or negative, without eating over them
-To be strong in all areas of my life and continue to grow spiritually, emotionally, and mentally
-To never again feel that I am somehow deficient or less than everyone else, realizing that I am a whole, competent, and worthy person as I am.

-to be happy- that means to not give in to sadness, and to dwell on happy thoughts. to assert my will and my efforts toward accepting my life as it is now and not wish for the past.

"We dont change the world through epiphanies, but by doing lots of little things that add up to sustained transformation. Simple things are not always easy to change, but by improving one thing at a time, we make progress toward great things" Dave Ulrich

About me:
I am an educator working at the district level.I was extremely happily married to my wonderful husband for 22 years. He was my rock and my support in everything even though he was physically ill all of our marriage. He passed away in August of 2012 after 4 long years in and out of the hospital. That first year he was sick I gained 30 lbs to a bit over 200lbs. Through Peertrainer and Dr. Fuhrman, I lost almost 80lbs and now weigh 126. I had been attending the untiversity and was almost through with a Ph.D but had to stop to care for my husband. I dont think I will go back. I have a huge supportive family and a lot of good friends. I am trying to find out how to live the rest of my life in a way that honors my husband's memory. He never complained and lived his life to the fullest, refusing limitations. I am working on it! I am vegan, still need to exercise, and an Elvis devotee. That is part of who I am and part of my daily experience. My kids are all grown with kids and grandkids of their own. My goals include getting back to running and finding a way to be happy.

Diets I like:
Furhman's Eat to Live, Eat for Health. Vegan with heavy emphasis on healthy greens.

Workout of choice:
running though I want to get back to yoga.

My plan:
I eat veggies, fruits, nuts, beams. I have added exercise finally. My plan for my life is to eat sanely and nutritiously, to include sustainable exercise. to live responsibly. to enjoy life in the moment- "According to my watch, the time is now, the past is dead and gone- dont try to shake it, just nod your head, breathe in, breathe out, move on" Jimmy Buffett

I need the most help with:
Exercise and drinking water! Finding out how to live my life without the one who made it all possible in the past.. I also have 2 alaskan malamutes that love me and require care.

Additional Info:
I will be a consistent member of this team. . dont know what we will do but i promise to do my part!
