A spirit without support is like a bird without feathers.

I'm here to hopefully get support with getting back to the food and activities of my First Nations - Native American ancestry. In the process, I know I'll reconnect to happiness, heritage, and health because I've done it before and want it again.
Ancestral eating when possible!


Member Since: 10/21/2018

Fitness Minutes: 400

My Goals:
To learn to live off of meat & veggies and get daily exercise. I just want to feel healthy and live an active life.


My Program:
Paleo Foods. Ancestral Eating when possible. At the very least avoiding the 'five white gifts' white flour, sugar, salt, cow milk, lard, along with processed foods. Food prepping cuz ain't nobody got time to be cooking meals, especially healthy meals, on my schedule.



Personal Information:
I'm a member of the Original Six, an Oneida of the Six Nations of North America.


Other Information:
I took an Ancestral Eating challenge a few years ago. I ate only food that my ancestors would have eaten prior to settler contact (or food as close to it as I could get). It was one of the hardest things I've ever done but also the most amazing. I've never felt as healthy and as clear-minded and as happy as I was while eating ancestral foods. I want that feeling back.

I'm here at Spark People for some support, any kind of support, because my spouse does not seem to want to join me or support me in getting and feeling healthy. This was a difficult journey to take as a family a few years ago. It'll be even harder this time as I apparently will walk this path on my own.

    Looking to stay focused through the upcoming Holiday Season? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle? If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early December. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For the Fall we had Cardio Hoedown, World Series and Sleepathon. I hope that you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Winter challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.
