Keeping Fit and Healthy

I'm here on Spark to continue and enrich my healthy lifestyle. I don't need to be the fittest or the thinnest, but I do want to be healthy! My main goals are to eat well (fruits and veggies, fiber, and less dessert) and exercise regularly. I'm 5'8" and have a healthy BMI. I have to eat gluten free because I have celiac disease.

I love the gym -- I never thought I'd say that! I take classes, which keeps me motivated. I aim for ~1000 fitness minutes every month. I try not to put too ...

Hey hey,

I ended up trying the NewBody class. It's a cardio-based 60 minute workout with small hand weights that also includes a lot of squat variations. Really good workout ideal for setting your own intensity level and great for a newcomer! (If you're curious, here's more info: http://www.goodlifefitness.com/groupexerci
se/cardio/newbody.aspx)

I was hoping to catch another class today, but unfortunately for me, all the workouts are centered around morning and evening which isn't cohesive to my schedule right now as I head into overnight shifts. I see what you mean, though -- if you stay focused and keep your intensity up during the class, they really do make you work harder than when exercising on your own! It's what I really need right now!

Ever try the spin classes?

Hi Kelly! You asked about my challenge. It's going great, but I don't think it has much to do w/ the challenge. It has more to do w/ my fitbit. I was needing a shake up in the exercise routine & it's helped. The sunshine has been helpful too. Spring is my favorite season.

Thanks for your comment on my status and your support. I worry and do everything else but focus on myself. Things will change. I'm going to keep trying.

Hey hey! Yes indeed, having those baseline measurements have been an excellent way to show my progress! I dig working down with the science of weight loss. Pretty interesting stuff. I try not to get too caught up with it, though, since I'm also a big fan of just feeling better and looking better overall. It's a pretty healthy balance. emoticon

Enjoy your week!
