It's time for me

As a mother of 3, with an entrepreneurial attitude, and a full-time job, one of the challenges I have is to make time for exercise...and eat a more wholesome array of food. I decided to join this group, because:
1. It was easy.
2. The motivation will be helpful
3. Posting my results and seeing other posts is encouraging.

It's hard to believe that it's been (nearly) a year since I joined the Spark family.

Since joining, I've had the opportunity to communicate with new friends -- and enjoy the support of others.

Physical fitness has always been an important aspect of my life. Jogging, Tae Kwon Do, and weight training have been regular routines for me since my early 20's (when my late husband and I started our family).

I'm thankful that fitness has always been f un for me. However, when I blew out my knee a couple of years ago (jogging in Nova Scotia), my fitness routine slowed down. I was concerned with putting on pounds and never being able to kick hard (Tae Kwon Do) or run long distances.

Joining the Spark family opened my eyes to some other options (besides power walking, pilates, yoga, and weight training), I began looking at things like the bosu for variety.

Last Saturday, I was at our annual Toastmaster picnic and was turned on to the weighted hula hoop. I hadn't touched a hula hoop in decades (Wow...decades sounds like a loooong time. I can hardly wait until my 3 lb hula hoop arrives.

I just wanted to update my family on what's going on with me.

Thank you so much for the positive response.

I guess like most Americans, most of our celebrations are focused around food. One of the ways we get so many guests into our Toastmaster Club is by putting out the word that breakfast is served.

Although I love the taste of great food like others...I think it's a shame that so many functions revolve around food.

I'm wondering if there is a place I can move to where celebrations revolve around physical activities (jogging, volleyball, basketball, etc).
