I am a working parent in my mid-40's living in Australia. I joined a gym in March 2013 and I've made a commitment to go there a minimum of 5 days a week, even if it is just to keep the habit of getting into my work our clothes, driving to the gym and walking through the doors.

It's not as hard to keep motivated to go to the gym as I thought since I enjoy the "me" time. I don't always have an hour though, sometimes I have to just grab a quick 30 and make the most of the time I ...
I am a working parent in my mid-40's living in Australia. I joined a gym in March 2013 and I've made a commitment to go there a minimum of 5 days a week, even if it is just to keep the habit of getting into my work our clothes, driving to the gym and walking through the doors.

It's not as hard to keep motivated to go to the gym as I thought since I enjoy the "me" time. I don't always have an hour though, sometimes I have to just grab a quick 30 and make the most of the time I have.

I recently bought a digital scale so that I can accurately keep an eye on my weight that has been creeping up over the last 15 years.

I'm tired of feeling sluggish and being unhappy with my health level and my waist size. I'm determined to make 2013 the year that I get back in shape.

I only have 22 pounds, which is approx. 10 kg to lose, and I have decided that a few months hard work and effort isn't much to get rid of 15 years of bad habits.

So, for the next three months I am going to SERIOUSLY eat healthier and work out consistently.

Welcome to Sparkies Down Under..


On the Start Page you will find all the information on how to set up your Spark page.
We recommend that you do this, as it is the basis of this very special journey with us to health and fitness.

Our Team Leaders have all made this Journey and have learned so much, we are still learning as we go on.


We are vibrant team who love our healthy Eating and doing lots of Exercise .
We have lots of interesting and helpful Challenges going on, and the reasons for these are 3 fold .


1) We need to count our Calories!!!. It is only by counting and keeping within our calorie range that Sparkpeople set for us, that we will lose weight and feel so much better.


2) We need to drink Water!!!. We need to drink at the very least 8 full glasses a day, this will prevent dehydration, and also help to stop us feeling hungry ..
Our brains and other organs in our bodies need water or they will shrivel up and cause so many medical problems .


3) We need to Exercise!!!. We need to keep our bodies mobile and fit.
Without exercising our bodies, muscles will die and we will suffer arthritis and other ailments.


We have fun Challenges too, to tax your brain and keep it active ..
Above all, Our mission is lead a Healthy and Fit life, free from Pain and Illness.

Hugs Susie

Thank you for visiting my page. It looks like you're making steady progress. It's amazing how it doesn't seem like anything is happening and then all of a sudden weight just drops or clothes feel looser. Good luck with your weight loss goals.
