I've been wanting to try some yoga to see if it will help my back a little and maybe help me sleep more than 6 hours a night (or less). I had tried it a few months ago and found it a little challenging, but I thought I'd give it another try. I've sent for a beginning yoga dvd on netflix and am looking forward to trying it when it arrives. I also thought about looking at the dvd's at the library., but haven't done it yet. I looked at reviews of yoga dvd's online and just got confused so I didn't know where to go next. Well last night I checked out exercise tv and found "YogaWorks Beginners AM PM. It was kind of long - 45 min, but I really enjoyed it. It was a little fast but I'm sure it will be easier when I know what I'm doing. The best thing was to see how much more limber I am than I was when I tried a few months ago. Wow, what a difference!

I got thru Thanksgiving well. My asthma is almost back to normal. I got back into my strength training on Friday and my DH did it with me up at the cabin! I walked at least once every day although I couldn't walk my usual distance at altitude. I ate well-staying very close to calorie range every day. I actually had a 500 cal deficit every day! My weight was exactly the same this a.m., which I am very pleased with. I had to enter 5 days of menu on my tracker last night which was no fun. I entertained the idea of not tracking on weekends, but my DH suggested I wait until I reach my goal before I start doing that. I guess he is right.
I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving also and that we are all ready for the month ahead!

I've been with Spark for about 5 months, lost weight, increased my fitness and improved my attitude.
I am so thankful I found this web site. Right before joining, I had been "trying" to lose weight for several months and wavered between 270 and 268. I said, "I just can't lose weight, no matter what I do" What an attitude. A set up for failure if I ever heard one. I just wasn't doing the things I needed to do. I was eating too much and not exercising at all. Ever heard that before?
In this Thanksgving season I want to put it out there that I am greatful for the knowledge, support, friendship and fun Spark has put in my life. I am generally very happy with my life, but being healthier has added so much joy and enthusiasm I can't express it all.
I wish you all the best Thanksgiving possible and the joy of health.
