It is time to change, to get fit, eat healthy & lose the weight!

I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
—Philippians 4:1

It isn't where you come from; it's where you're going that counts. -Ella Fitzgerald


1) Do not skip meals. Skipping meals may cause your metabolism to slow down or lead you to overeat at your next meal.

2) To lower your risk for chronic diseases, such as coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes, select high-fiber foods like beans, fruits, vegetables, and whole-grain breads and cereals.

3) Choose lean beef, turkey breast, fish, or chicken with the skin removed over fattier meats.

4) Have three daily servings of vitamin D “fortified dairy products, like low-fat or fat-free milk, yogurt, or cheese. You can also take a daily calcium and vitamin D supplement.

5) Choose foods fortified with vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is naturally found in foods that come from animals, including fish, meat, poultry, eggs, milk, and milk products. Also fortified breakfast cereals.

6) Keep healthy snacks like dried apricots, whole-wheat crackers, peanut butter, low-fat cheese, and low- sodium soup on hand. Stay away from snacks that are high in fat and sugar, like cake, candy, chips, and soda.

7) Drink plenty of water or water-based fluids.

    Back home and absolutely worn out...Had a great time, the weather was fab and so were many of the vendor prices.

    My only negatives (1)As we searched for seating, we were told noone was allowed to sit in the unmarked (lined) areas around the scalfling in front of the stage, the area was filled up every night. (2) water in a can EWwe, this is just wrong :0) not to mention its $1.50 cost.

    I am having trouble picking a favorite due to enjoying so many of the concerts. Do you have a favorite this year?
