I was late in putting up a Spark Page. I finally got around to it. I spent a good deal of time today checking out teams (there are thousands!!) and joined a few that make sense to me as a grouping. With the new teams, I covered Structure, Process and Outcome goals like this:
Structure: Infrastructure Habits for my lifetime weight management. Basically, this is the tracking of nutrition, fitness, weight and water that I must do from here on out.
Process: This is HOW I do the above. Outsmarting Temptation is going to help me with my personal weakness in craving/binging food. I have a couple of process groups for exercise--one for my Cardio at the gym called Treadmill, Elliptical, Runners... and one that throws in daily strengthening challenges that can be done at home called Quickfire Challenge. There were many process groups for nutrition. However, I'm doing all I can handle with the new shopping and cooking while keeping other family members who do not have a weight problem happy. I'm using Spark Recipes at my own pace. That's good enough.
Outcome: I joined a small group that will make me accountable to an intermediate outcome goal. I have a weigh-in February 20 in the Biggest Loser Small Group friendly competition. This will be great! My long-term goal will take one year. It will be good to see where I'm at in 3 months.
This year is going to be interesting.
