The Dawning of a New Day!

I have been using the "Spark People" website for about a year now and it remains one of my favorite web sites! While I have not lost the weight I wanted to as of yet it has continued to educate and inspire me throughout the year with informative e-mails, recipes and articles of interest for a healthy lifestyle.

I began reading Jordan Rubin's best selling book "The Maker's Diet" in the beginning of June and have subsequently read his book "The Maker's Diet for Weight Loss" as well. I have been totally inspired to embark on a journey to health using the principles in his books.

Today I began a 10 day "Summer Fast" to kick start my program and am doing a total pantry/refrigerator/freezer clean out in preparation for my new dietary guidelines. While my wife and kids plan to do this plan as well, the cleanout is going to be hard for my wife as she is very frugal and hates throwing anything out. I plan to document my entire journey here as well as on "Spark People" as a journal for myself as well as a possible inspiration for others.

I have been exercising 6 days a week since June 1st and will continue as well as making other minor changes in preparation to today's "official start".

Well, here's to a new/healthier me and subsequently healthier family! To God be the glory!

Grace and Peace,
