Hi @Shaz51 - great idea. I normally eat very healthily but found myself indulging a bit lately due to stress. Not going to be easy with Easter this month but I'm in.
Drinking only water and herbal tea.
No processed food.
Lots of fruit and veges
Lean meat and other protein sources such as beans, eggs and tofu.
A little bit of slack if I'm eating out.
Getting 10000+ steps of walking in every day.

I will join the group.
i have started eating too many sugary foods. I will cut down on my sugar intake.
I dont add salt to most foods, dont use it in cooking.
water i do drink lots but find myself forgetting when feeling unwell. so will concentrate on that.
vegetables and fruit same when travelling ok eat lots, when declining health dont have energy.
so my self care will be keep a journal of my food, salt, sugar, water intake daily.
what are your goals Shaz?

Count me in. A new month so as good a time as any for an overhaul.
My diet is pretty healthy but I intend to cut out processed food as much as possible save for the occasional treat or when dining out. Lots of water and herbal tea. Fruit and veges. Lean meat and meat alternatives. Whole grains. Yoghurt.
As well as walking my 10000 steps a day, I am including more exercise. If you're looking for alternatives to the gym, I can recommend Qi Gong. I do it by following a DVD I bought years ago. Just started up again today and didn't realise how much tension my body was holding.

That will be great @soul, @Former-Member
that is a good idea @Former-Member, about keeping a food diary
For me , she wants me to drink more water
less sugar in my tea , and less coffee
eat more fruit even if it is tin fruit of fresh
Oh @Darcy, I don`t buy ice cream anymore as my hubby will eat it all in no time
well today , i went to the shop to buy some salad and ham for lunch and then I made a mistake of going to the bakery to buy bread -- he he and came out with something not sooo healthy --ooops
