I wasn't too thrilled to see I had walked that far yesterday! ha ha ha I'm a nurse and my job keeps me on my feet a lot, but every day is different. I've had my pedometer for several weeks, but hadn't been using it much. After I took this assignment, I thought what the heck. It would be interesting to know how far I go in a day....now, I'm not so sure I WANT to know! ha ha ha But since I was putting in so MANY steps, I decided to start tracking them. I know it will help me in the long run.
Good luck with your journey! You have a GREAT day and enjoy your new DVD! I'm jealous! LOL!!
It's like sending a card-just a fun thing ...a virtual gift. When you spin the wheel, record your food, exercise, etc. you earn points and these points can be used to give yourself or others a gift. Some of the gifts have a note attached to them. If you click on "See All My Goodies" it indicates if there is a note attached, click on the note to read. Just another of the fun ways to support others and find support on Sparkpeople! 2246 days ago
Hey there, welcome to Fibro Friends! You're off to a great start - congrats on winning that Spark dvd on the log-in wheel! It sure helps when we can see tangible results. I commend your persistence even though you don't have tangible results - yet. You will, you will!
You have joined an incredibly supportive team. We're here for your weight loss, fitness, motivation & as you live w/ FMS. Fibro does change losing weight & getting fit - but it doesn't stop us unless we let it. Even having a day full of obstacles & not letting it stop us the next day is progress. Make it a goal to make progress every day, even when all you do is 10 minutes of slow stretching in a couple 5 minute sessions. It will make so much difference.
This forum, including the Reading Room, is full of fibro resources. Spark's tools are fantastic, I couldn't do this w/o the trackers. There's so much to learn, articles and slideshows & videos, including Coach Nicole's workout videos like the dvd you'll have soon.
