Hi! Welcome to my spark page!!


Start slow ( taking a step at a time )

I am starting from the beginning, rereading articles for each stage, taking notes and figure out a plan that will work for me. Just finished reading..Do's and Don'ts of Goal Setting by Mike Kramer

Do create a plan

My plan is to be consistant. Get into the gym 4 days a week, when choosing meals make sure that protien is the first choice. Majorly limit the amount of carbs I take in and eat lots of fruits and veggies.

Do start small

I am not over working or pushing myself. I do as much as I can until I am able to push myself harder.

Do write it down

This is my page, my notebook where I am writing all my goals and plans down. I also have a note book that have started writing little notes on through out the day on the front page then on the back I sum it up everything for that day.

Do be specific

I will work on becoming a runner, that is my main goal. So I focus more using the treadmill at the gym but I do cross train. I also use the elliptical, stationary bike and the wave. Two days a week I do strength training.
My meals will mainly consist of protien and veggies. The mornings is were I will have buiscuts ( 3 ) for my carbs. For my snacks I usually eat an Apple, protien bar or protien shake.

Do leave room for failure

I expect to have difficult days, I may hurt myself while exercising but I will allow it to heal then get right back up and go again... I expect to have days where I will find it hard to choose the healthiest meal but on those day I will limit the amount that I eat and get right back as soon as I can with the healthy meals.

Do track your progress

Everyday I exercise I keep track of everything, my HR, calories burned, total time exercise. I write down my feelings, thoughts about what is going on and how I am doing. How I did with my runs and work to make them stronger and faster.

Do reward your success

I will reward myself when I succeed, my rewards will be in the form of something that I can use to keep me going such as new music or new tools that will help me stay motivated.

Do find a support system

I have a great friend that I keep in daily contact with in some way or other wether it be by blog or chat room. She really helps to keep me going!

Do make a commitment

I am making a commitment to myself! I am working on a new me! I may not ever be or have the perfect measurments or be that top model but I will be happy and healthy

Personal Information:
My name is Susan, I am an American living in Italy now, been here for 8 years.

Other Information:
I have been a member of SparkPeople for a few years. I had great success then my attention was taken else where, where I lost track of me.

My main motivation for getting healthy is my children. I need to take care of my self so that I will have the energy that these kids need. If I am not happy with myself then the depression sets in and I am not able to be the mother that my kids need.

Hi Susan-this 'side of the world' is hanging in there-I've had my 'ups & downs' with consistency, but on an 'up' side right now...
So, what kind of work are you looking for? Sounds interesting...my daughter actually does better when she has to schedule things in-I do, too, I guess

cold here again-tornadoes have wreaked havoc on the midwest again, but other than hail, we've been OK in STL

Glad you're fitting in the gym time-keep me posted!!! emoticon

Hey girl...wanted to stop by and see how you were doing. How is the C25K program coming along? It's been a rough couple of weeks for me in terms of fitting in fitness. I am hoping to reevaluate my schedule this weekend and try a different routine (maybe exercising in the morning). I hope all is going well with you.
