******* Simple plan for each day for me. *******
+++++++++++!!! BE HONEST! !!!++++++++++
Hello, welcome to my page. I have been sparking since 2008.My highest weigh was 245. I am a 63 yr old women married over 40 yr. I know what needs to be done with nutrition but have a very hard time accomplishing it each day. I love Jesus my Savior, He is in every part of my life and is my eternal life.
I am here to work on nutrition and help others to be accountable. I do feel I am not qualified to be of help because I can't even help myself but I am open for anyone who needs to report to someone. My problem is weakness in this area. I am not sure what Jesus has for me to get the grip I need and continue a faithful direction. I know temptations are all around us and I believe if He wills for me to change this area of my life it will come.

My Goals:
Winter Nutrition ITC's are about developing healthy habits. We will work on a different one each week.

NUTRITION - HEALTHY HABIT: Eat a Rainbow of Freggies.
From everything we read it is apparent that we need to eat 3 to 5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day.
1. Eat fruit or veggies (freggies) from 3 colors of the Rainbow 5 days this week. (M&M's and Skittles don't count!)
2. Post in your team chat room how you combined your fruit or veggies for one day.

1 point for each day you eat a rainbow. (Max 5)
5 points for posting in the chat room. (Max 5)
Bonus: 10 points for eating a rainbow all 5 days. (Max 10)
Possible points = 20

    emoticon emoticon How many times have you or someone you know set out to lose 50 or more pounds, or exercise for an hour day for six days a week, only to fall off the wagon a few weeks (or days) later? Even when people have the best of intentions and or the willpower to set out and do something huge like losing weight, without a plan or a smart goal in place, they stumble along the way—and are more likely to fail. Now that you've been exercising for 10 minutes a day over the past week or so, it is time for you to set some fitness goals that can last a lifetime! emoticon So get started and plan to win!

    All goal setting must be immediately followed by both the development of a plan, and massive and consistent action toward its fulfillment

    emoticon sometimes we all reach a weight loss plateau. What are we to do when that happens?

    DO focus on fruits and vegetables. Most American's don't come close to eating the recommended minimum of five servings per day, but vegetables and fruits of all kinds and colors should take center stage in a heart-healthy diet. They're rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that promote a healthy heart and body, plus they're filling and low in calories, which can promote weight management. Fresh, frozen, dried, canned (without sugar/syrups or added salt), raw, cooked—all fruits and vegetables are good for you.

    Try filling your plate 3/4 of the way full with healthy veggies. Make sure they are baked, roasted or steamed. This way you will be getting the most health benefits they have to offer. Such as fiber, antioxidants and vitamins.

    Double check what you are drinking. Some of us don't realize those delicious lattes and iced coffees are loaded with calories. Check out SP's Chef's Megs recipes for lo-fat & lo-cal coffess. They are so delicious.

    And last but not least, try revamping your exercise routine. That's right, sometimes that is all it takes. Revamping your exercise routine by adding a couple of new exercises or switching up a couple of things.

    Remember, a plateau is just temporary and you can restart your weight loss! emoticon
