I am 27, and a scene designer/painter for stage theatre. I have recently graduated from Graduate school with my MFA. I have a Lab/pit/beagle mix puppy with a lot of energy. I have a horrible tendency to not eat regularly because of crazy theatre schedules.I love to be outdoors and walk, but I HATE to exercise. It has to be disguised as something else.

Congrats on taking the next step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

You should probably post your question on the fitness forum so you can get a more 'educated' response from one of the coaches. Most of the people on this forum are just ordinary Spark Members without special training in these topics. Not to say our advice and experience is worthless but with a technical question like this, you probably should get a more expert answer!!

But I know what you mean about your dog - I have a high-energy girl, too - a beagle mix, probably with lab, heeler, pointer and/or "who knows" - she goes out on runs, walks and hikes whenever she can and often with both DH and me so it's not unusual for her to end up with 10-15 miles in a day - she's tired after that but still 'ready to go' if she thinks one of us is heading out again. Sometimes I think she should have been adopted by a cross-country team, haha! My SparkPage has pics of her and my other baby, a maltese mystery mix.

Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - some of the teams you might like include the Official 10-minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge, Starting Over Weekly Mini-Challenge Team, 10k Steps A Day and Motivation & Positive Attitude Plan but there are so many to choose from, you can have a great time looking for the ones that seem to fit you best! In fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' so it's good for people wanting to lose weight, maintain a previous loss, get healthier, improve fitness and many other goals - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!

If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.

emoticon

If you haven't already discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.

emoticon

Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!
