Fitness Quest 2013

Hi Everyone,

Well, a summer in Spain, and a transition into the house has made for a very large increase in weight for me.  (Not to mention the baby weight I ‘decided’ to hold onto) I have decided that this is the year that I get fit.  What better way to motivate than to share my goals with the world.  I have thought about going vegan, but I really like chicken and just started eating fish about 4 years ago!  So I’m not ready to give that up…Also, I cannot say enough about cheese.  Mmmmmmm…Anyhow, I have been adding more veggies into my diet, which I believe is the number best change one can make to their diet.  Just add more greens and the rest will follow.  I also joined a gym and have been doing really well working out for the week that I’ve been there.  I have been exploring all the classes and enjoying their yoga studio.  It’s been quite a change for me, as I never enjoyed working out at a gym before.  And last, but most definitely not least, I have been tracking my food on myfitnesspal.com.  (username:  JenneeJumpUp) I am really diggin’ this site!  At first I believe it would be such a chore, but now it’s almost like a game.

“How many calories did I eat today?”  “Uh oh, too many sugars today, better watch out for that tomorrow.”  “WTH, My sodium is THROUGH THE ROOF!”

That last one really got me, as high blood pressure and heart disease is in my family bloodline.  When I really looked into what I thought was a super healthy day of eating, I found that it was the salad dressing that threw me over the top.  After a little bit more research, I found this :

and will try these quick and easy dressings over the next week.

Wishing you a happy, healthy day!
