Lifestyle Change, Here I Come!

Hi there! I've been with SparkPeople since November 2010. I've really been enjoying all the resources here, and they have contributed to my success, though in May 2011 I slowed down on my exercise. Here in 2014 I'm hoping to get back on track with daily walks and Spark challenges and videos, as I've recently been diagnosed with diabetes. This was not a surprise - my grandmother, mother, father, and sister are all diabetic. Spark has tons of resources to help with this journey, so I'm looking ...
Hi there! I've been with SparkPeople since November 2010. I've really been enjoying all the resources here, and they have contributed to my success, though in May 2011 I slowed down on my exercise. Here in 2014 I'm hoping to get back on track with daily walks and Spark challenges and videos, as I've recently been diagnosed with diabetes. This was not a surprise - my grandmother, mother, father, and sister are all diabetic. Spark has tons of resources to help with this journey, so I'm looking forward to exploring Spark from a whole new angle.

I work in a mostly sedentary job, so I've been trying to incorporate more movement at work in addition to adding more exercise into my life. I try to take a walk at work and another one when I get home, and I've been trying new classes occasionally at the gym.

As some of my pictures will note, I also have a hobby in medieval recreation, so I dress up in pretty clothes and keep busy with that hobby frequently throughout the year. I also enjoy singing with a local chorus for the Sweet Adelines organization (a barbershop group for women) and with the medieval group. Looking forward to much success here and to making many new SparkFriends.

emoticon Today's quote is by C. JoyBell C.:

“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.”

So, our challenge this week is to do it and throw ourselves into the open so we can grow and live our healthier new lifestyle and enjoy the ride! Have a fantabulous new week! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
