Thanks for your comments on my blogs. As far as me becoming "a little bit hard core," it's been a process. I started out like SparkGuy suggests, just 10 minutes a day. And that was usually the balance games on the Wii Fit Plus because they didn't take any energy at all to do.
Actually, I really started where you are now. I would do a bunch one day, then lay around for a couple days -- OK, OK, a couple months -- before I would do anything again because I burned myself out so fast. I was a regular flash-in-the-pan. Then I saw my friends on SparkPeople getting trophies for their minutes when they were just doing a little bit. They were conquering miles and all kinds of obstacles by doing little bits at a time. So then I started the 10-minutes-a-day thing and slowly built up. Then one day I got the idea to do 1000 miles this year. I came up with a plan, realized it was a little ambitious and I needed to start training right away (that was October). Now that I finally get to start counting my miles toward my big 2012 goal, I'm fired up! 1843 days ago
Thanks so much! I'm glad you liked my post :) Public Health is an awesome field to go into nowadays. There are so many different paths within the major itself and they're all for the most part very much needed and pay pretty well. Next summer I'll be doing my first internship so hopefully that will give me a better idea of what area I want to concentrate on.
I read on your page that you almost never get 8 hours of sleep a night!? That's crazy! If I don't get at least 7 I'm practically a walking, mumbling zombie. That's a really good goal to set though, as I'm sure once you start getting more sleep you'll probably have a lot more energy! 2001 days ago
Hey there! Thanks for sending me a message! I haven't been doing the greatest on here this summer but am hoping to get back on track! Seems its a constant struggle to find enough time, energy, motivation blah, blah, blah... hopefully we can be good motivators for each other! Have a great day!
Thank you for the thank you (redundant, duh). At 3 am, brilliant is one thing I am not. I've been here for a few years, and I figure I should use these points for something useful, encouraging other people. At work I am an old dinosaur of 35 years that they keep around because I remember when and why things happen and I make a consistent warm body. It is like a healthy lifestyle, I try to find the niche I can fit in, or make the niche fit me. Anything can be maneuvered to fit. If you can't live without french fries, make them out of zucchini baked in the oven. :0) 2006 days ago
