Baby Steps

I found SP while looking for a nutrition calculator. I'd lost 25 pounds without much of an idea about what I was doing. I was amazed and grateful to discover that Sparkpeople is so much more than a calorie tracker.

I know from experience that making small, consistent positive changes snowballs into an avalanche of change. I didn't know that I would need to pay attention to every day if I wanted to hang on to the benefits of those changes. I didn't know that nothing is or can be ...

I know from experience that making small, consistent positive changes snowballs into an avalanche of change. I didn't know that I would need to pay attention to every day if I wanted to hang on to the benefits of those changes. I didn't know that nothing is or can be allowed to be more important than health. Not studying. Not chores. Not even family demands.

But I am learning that now.

Personal Information:
I'm from Seattle Washington and I LOVE to hike. Love, love, love to hike!

Other Information:

I'm midway through nursing school where I am probably the oldest nursing student ever.

Mini-challenge for you: "TIDY UP"

Set aside 5 or 10 minutes every day .... to straighten up something, whether it be your desk, a cluttered table, junk drawer, or the kitchen counter. Return items to their rightful places, recycle, and put papers you need to go through in a folder for later.

A chaotic or disorganized space makes everyday tasks seem harder because you feel like you're always running behind. Cleaning up even one small physical space can help clear mental space, allowing you to be more efficient the rest of the day.
