This learning curve is eternal! As I struggle to come to grips with the truth of my life, I am constantly in flux. I guess they call this "life". This past year is the first time I have not held a job in many years. I guess I am retired. So why do I feel so pressured to "perform"? No matter. It's a process, but I have realized that as glorious as being "free to do nothing" is, I find I am becoming very unproductive. That is not a good feeling. Action is required.
So here goes. I love Sparkpeople & even though I am still battling to accept the fact that I MUST exercise every day, I realize I need to get OFF this computer. It plays too easily into my sedentary habit. So. Today I went to check out the Aquatic Centre & its AquaFit classes! (I also stuck my hand in the water to see if I was going to be able to enter the pool without freezing to death ) It felt good, so I am going to sign myself up. I am also going to drag my husband to the pool once a week for some splashing around just for the fun of it!
We are also going to be curling once a week when that begins in October. And I called a gal in my church group to see about getting a little more involved with them! They say the more you have to do, the more you get done! I am hoping the old saying is true! I just know that I spend more time on the SparkPeople site getting NO exercise but LOTS of points! I don't think that's what SparkGuy had in mind!
So from now on, the site will be my reward for good behavior! I use the scale the same way! I only get to weigh in when I do the work that might get the desired results. So, wish me luck. I'll need it! And thanks for all the support thus far! I am not the brightest Spark on the site, but I am still here, hoping to shine! I will be checking in daily because without all you folks, I probably won't succeed! I need the trackers, and the enthusiasm I find here!
