I don't have a title, being non-committal

I am a couch potato, internet junkie, and a research rebel. I love the name of this community, Spark. I am feeling the sparks start now that Spring has sprung.

I hope to find inspiration here from you and get honest with myself.

emoticon Is there a way to fit in the exercise right after work, either walking at a local park or some type of class before you get home?

How about five minutes of chair exercise at lunch time? There are some great videos here on Spark with instructions.

Add ten minutes of walking up/down the aisles at the grocery store, in the healthier food choices area of course.

Seated leg lifts at your desk, parking further away to you walk more.

Never give up, never surrender, YOU can do this!

emoticon emoticon emoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.

1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.

2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.

The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family!

Welcome to SparkPeople!

If I may suggest:

Set your goals and then break them into smaller ones.

I was having a big problem with exercising so I joined the 10 minute challenge. It worked. I finished the 4 week challenge and I'm still doing it. Most of the time I go for 10 and end up with 20 or more.

Don't be disappointed in yourself. If you beat yourself up it is harder to get it right. Forgive yourself and you'll be surprised.
