KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON!

I am in my 5th year on Sparks. I have several health issues that keep me on a constant roller coaster with my weight. I do the best I can with what I have to work with but the friends I have made here are what keep me going!

To continue to lose weight at a safe pace as I deal with health issues. To keep walking as long as I do not have severe pain. To enjoy my Challenge teams and do the best I can when I can!


My Program:
I am planning to participate in the 5% Challenge for Fall. My exercise commitment is to walk daily and use the Sit and Tone DVD or similar chair exercise video 2-3x weekly.
I will continue to adjust my nutrition as I need to for my Gastroparesis and enjoy those few foods I can while I can.

Personal Information:
I am from Central Kansas and love the trees. I read and review my books and books that are requested by authors. I walk daily unless in pain and have a step goal of 4000-5000 steps a day at present. I have several progressive health issues but I just keep on keeping on.

This Holiday Season, give yourself the gift of self-motivation:

1. Review your reasons for wanting to be healthier.

2. Think about how you felt when you began your new healthy lifestyle. You remember . . . tired, low energy, lots of aches and pains, miserable, embarrassed, etc. and pay close attention to the smallest changes in your body. Think about how far you’ve come so far.

3. Challenge yourself . . . the try some new, healthy food options; a new form of exercise; walk farther; run faster; whatever. Just make sure the challenge you set is realistic for you.

4. Set up reminders to keep yourself on track – they can be sticky notes taped to your computer monitor, automatic text messages/emails you send yourself, or anything else that will keep your goals front and center in your mind.

5. Surround yourself with others who are positive and motivated.

6. Read success stories or watch them on video.

7. Learn as much as you can about healthy lifestyles. In this case, education CAN be free! There is a ton of good info on this site or in your local library. Knowledge is POWER!

8. Just Get Moving! Once you start, you’ll want to keep going.

9. Keep a record of your progress. Seeing concrete evidence of your improvement will motivate you to do even more/better.

10. Help others when you can.

Keep going!

You are SPARKTACULAR!
