I am a returning SparkPeople from years ago. It has been so long, that my old email is now gone and I have to start over. But it almost seems symbolic in a way, a better way, a successful way. Starting Over!

I am a nurse (my last name is Moody, hence the puns) and a mom who takes care of everyone else and puts myself last. Now it is my turn! My eating habits are sometimes on the fly and not planned out so I just fix something with whatever I have on hand and it is not always a very good nutritional one. Knowing the health problems that lie ahead, scare the heck out of me! I need to get this done for myself, for better health and longevity to be with my husband and children. And I really need to LIVE the example of what I want for my kids. I don't want them to reach 40-something and realize they should have done better with their self care years ago and pay the price now like I am. I don't want them to have to go back and FIX all the things they should have done better with, all because they didn't have a better example or role model.
I love them all but more importantly, I need to love myself and take action now.

Member Since: 6/8/2014

Fitness Minutes: 1,023

My Goals:
Eat better + more active = better health = longevity = happier life.

Be the example I want my kids to follow.

Will be implementing parts of 2 programs and blending them together: The Blood Sugar Solution, by Mark Hyman, MD, and The Virgin Diet by JJ Virgin, CNS/CHFS.

My Program:
Cut out processed foods to include gluten and food intolerance items.

Personal Information:
I have been a nurse for 22 years, and I should take better care of myself.

I am an Usui Reiki Master and this will help me process energy better and stay more energetically balanced.

I have lived in Florida for 41 years, so I guess I am considered a LOCAL now.
I love Alabama Football!

Other Information:
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to watch Dean and Sam on SUPERNATURAL!!

I love audio books, especially vampire and supernatural books with a comical twist- like Kat Richardson, MaryJane Davidson, and Charlaine Harris. (The Undead Series by MaryJane Davisdon is hilarious).

    Oh I think you are SO smart to take the steps you are with your children...removing them from the tempting aisles of the grocery store not only helps you ( believe me, I know how tiring it is to have to say "no" repeatedly to a child who has learned to expect the sugar and junk food!) but also helps THEM. Keeping them away from temptation until they can handle it better is a great gift.

    And preparing their plates...GREAT idea, because you are right--it¡s hard for kids to recognize portion distortion when it has become their habit.

    What a loving and attentive mother you are. Your children will thank you when they are old enough to realize what a wonderful thing you have done for them.

    Have a great Spark day and keep up the good work..
