This was my low weight in years when I dropped out of spark in 2008 about 180 lbs.

My screen name means "the die is cast" and metaphorically, there's no turning back. It was something my dad used to say when to nudge me to make the most of what I had.

I am finally getting the habits of maintenance and that means letting go of shortcuts, expectations of rapid change and creating easily repeated healthy patterns. (stock meals to more rapidly track cals and Pennington's 7 nutrients: A, B-6, folate, B-5, calcium , magnesium , iron). After 47 years of yo-yo-ing and binging, patterns are telling.

I am ready for 48 this November, loving the travelling life as I start my 5th contract as a contract therapist. I need good nutrition and exercise to meet the challenge of life in dorms and hotels, and reduce the exposure to road food. I am ready to let go of rookie status and take it to the next level.

I strive to be UNSHAKEABLE in my resolution to healthy.

I am a new juicer and vegetarian, with the possibility of slipping into a vegan lifestyle as well. I dont miss meat and dairy most days. I follow the thrive forward program, focusing on what I am ADDING to my life, and not so much what I have left behind.You know, it is a lot of effort to mow down enough calories and nutrition from veggies alone. I dont know how I could do it without my juicer. The days I dont struggle to squeeze in another late meal are the days I give in to temptation.....

    thanks for stopping by my blog/page. You got a cool page yourself. And beautiful dog. I love animals,too. Sorry about your ankle, hope you get better soon, I am not sure what to advice you, since I have learned that for some people is better cold, whereon for others is better hot compresses.I would then, perhaps, suggest you try both and see which one achieves the result.
    Keep in touch!

    Thank you for reading my blog. Pizza was always a weakness for me so I try to think that it is certainly for the best.
