That is so awesome, I like when I do a to do list and every day include some small but manageable chores which also include simply the word exercise some times i can do 45 mins other times im lucky to squeeze in 10 mins but knowing its on my list, and i can do whatever i need to do works for me
YAY - doesn't it feel GOOD? I've been doing some of those things (water, freggies) for so long they are as much a part of my life as brushing my teeth, but even after two years of sparking I was still struggling with regular strength training. Then a few weeks ago I read a blog by another sparker who is STREAKING - with healthy goals.
It was like a light bulb went off in my head - that's how I can make ST a habit!! For the last 16 days I've been doing upper body one day, lower body the next and core the third. Then starting over!! My streak is for 9 sets of reps but most days now I do more - and its getting EASIER!! Why did it take me so long to figure it out? Don't know, but I've got it now!!
Best of luck to you - you've got it too!!

One day at a time, one step st a time. Good luck, success is in your reach.
Nice job! You are doing exactly what you need to do. One step at a time which is actually quite challenging in our current era of frustration because the computer takes a minute to boot up instead of 30 seconds. Keep up the good work.
I always tell people I coach that you have to walk before you run. That statement is true for any kind of change. I'm proud of you for walking, and I can't wait to see you run. Enjoy your journey! Carrie

It's day 7 for me of sticking to the fast break phase! It's the first time I've done stage one properly, just setting small goals and meeting them and preparing myself for a lifetime of healthy habits, instead of undertaking "perfect" eating, huge fitness challenges, and quitting when I can't keep up with such overwhelming changes.
It hasn't been perfect, I have slipped up on some of my smaller goals, but I've successfully: Drank a huge glass of water every morning for 7 days, which is cructial to me working out efficiently Worked out at least 10 minutes a day each day this week Kept my surroundings clean, organized, and manageable which keeps my stress and stress-eating habits away Posted my goals every single day in my planner and met them!
I feel good. And stronger. And now it's time for me to go work out. =]
