Dec 302014


Like everyone else at this time of year I take a look at myself and say Kay you need to make some changes.  So this year I am going to be more healthy.  I am going to lose weight, do things that make me smile, exercise and just take some time for me.  I am not going to let myself get stressed out or worry about things I have no control over.  I know this is easy for me to say but I am going to do my best and try to improve me.

What does that mean for my readers?  To start with I am going to commit to at least one story a week regarding health, food, diet, green or doing something nice for someone.  I am going to share pictures of my healthy meals and of things I find along the way that you would find helpful.  I am hoping to be inspired and to inspire anyone who desires to live a healthier lifestyle along with me.

I would love if you would share your helpful and healthy tips with me in the comments below. I am always looking for new recipes and snack ideas too!

I am so blessed to have the readers I have and look forward to 2015 and making a few improvements!

I have moderate COPD and after losing my Mom at that time, I lost 30 pounds. My average weight is 125, hardly ever going under 118 or over 135. I have gotten so weak, along with losing all of my muscle. I’d appreciate any posts on this issue I am having! Thanks so much!

  45. Linda, I know what you mean about the inspiration! But, I have to be honest about not only not being very healthy but also being unable to eat most healthy foods. Terrible but I gag easily and am like a child. I just can’t eat something I don’t like. I’m unhealthy from smoking 40 years but I did quit last year. The other reasons are from chronic pain that I will soon be working on; doc fixing me up with physical therapist.
