I started Sparking in March of 2007 or so, when I needed a food tracker. Once I approached my goal weight, I stopped logging food... and then I injured my foot and put all the weight back on, argh!

Fortunately, most of my good eating habits learned the first time around stayed with me; I only have to 'tweak' my eating habits a bit to get back on track. My big thing now is getting exercise each day, which is difficult, because I never found anyone who could FIX my darn foot! I'm ...
I started Sparking in March of 2007 or so, when I needed a food tracker. Once I approached my goal weight, I stopped logging food... and then I injured my foot and put all the weight back on, argh!

Fortunately, most of my good eating habits learned the first time around stayed with me; I only have to 'tweak' my eating habits a bit to get back on track. My big thing now is getting exercise each day, which is difficult, because I never found anyone who could FIX my darn foot! I'm still looking. None of the podiatrists I went to seem to be able to figure it out (even though I have; I need a doc who will listen, and understand that I have a very high pain threshhold).

My two main focuses here are:

1. Maintain a healthy lifestyle for food/exercise.
2. Get better organized. For that, I have FlyLady to thank (www.flylady.net)

A bit about me:

I'm a 30-something divorced female whose 'family' is two wonderful cats: a stray named Snickers, and my first pure-bred cat: a beautiful Maine Coon (still a kitten right now) named Peshtigo. If you recognize the name "Peshtigo", and I tell you he's a red tabby (red and gold, with gold eyes), you might know why I picked that name for him. If you don't recoginze the name "Peshtigo", and you are curious, try googling or wikipediaing it. ;)

I have a picture of my two babies playing together as the first photo to the left. No, I don't have a lot of pictures of me; I don't like having my picture taken, even when I'm healthy and such.

For fun stuff, I like Shaolin kung fu and Tai Chi (www.hingsingschool.com), reading, walking, flying airplanes (although it seems the price of everything has gone up, so I haven't been), playing World of Warcraft and other computer games, and voluteering. My latest volunteer efforts landed me as Secretary of my Condo Association Board of Directors.

Geez, with all these hobbies, you would think I'd be thinner! But it's no wonder my home is a mess! :P

Yep I think every couple of days will do. Sound like your doing better and getting in those mins. on the bike helps a lot. I am walking anywhere bwt 65 - 80 mins. a day now. Plus I do a shorter walk with Phred most days too. Still not losing too fast but I feel 100% more energized. emoticon emoticon emoticon xo Teri

Thanks for commenting on my "Pity Party" blog. I appreciate the support and encouragement. I got lots of great feedback and it has given me plenty to think about and consider. One thing I know is that I will never give up on trying to reach my goal, even if I have to change my approach. Have a great day!

"Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark.
In the hopeless swamps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all,
do not let the hero in your soul perish and leave only frustration for the life you deserved, but never have been able to reach.
The world you desire can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours."

Would love to buddy up and give encouragement as well as receive. I purchased the Spark Tracking device and finally installed it yesterday. This morning did a nice walk at over 400 cal and over my goal of 5000 steps to start. I started walking every day about 3 weeks ago. Started slow but now I am up to a good hour outside and I still do at least a mile or more with my walking dvd's (Leslie Sansone 3 milers or Bob's from the BL) Bobs are 1 mile walks (4 total on dvd) but they are around 2000 steps and a lot of movement along with weights. I try to do one of these in the afternoon. I am trying to work up to 4 & 5 mile LS walks again and of course eventually getting back into the gym. good luck xo Teri
