My History

Honestly, I think I have tried anything and everything under the sun to lose weight and get to an ideal body fat percentage. I'm not there, I'm not done. I have been a member of Weight Watchers and things like that. Just take a look at my enormous book shelves and infinite supply of reading related to health, fitness and nutrition - and weight loss - and exercise - and everything in between. 

Presently, I am active on a website called SparkPeople .... it is very helpful for community and online articles, recipes, etc. My username at SparkPeople is HealthyHabitGal  ... which is also the user name I use for many sites, such as my FitBit site.

Via SparkPeople, I ended up meeting another group of fitness souls and we all became Facebook friends, and honestly I've never met most of them in person, but they are a wonderful support for me. These people have inspired me and led me to a philosophy I am embracing somewhat - a philosophy called Clean Eating, or eating whole foods, largely unprocessed.  I am also an administrator for a Facebook group called [Leap Into Fitness].  It is wonderful.  I love it.  

As for ideal eating habits, I am not there yet - not 100% anyway. I am learning and taking baby steps. This idea I have, this blog and trying new foods/recipes, is my attempt to get me there. I honestly believe that Lifestyle changes are the way to go, and the only way people will ever be free of their demons and at their ideal body weight for them. 

I've come a LONG way in eliminating things, but have more to go. It is my hope and intention (goal rather) ... that as I add in more and more of the GOOD stuff, there simply will be no room for the bad stuff.

As always - Make Champion Choices!
