I feel good today. I don't understand why, but my energy level is really high today. I got out of bed and walk 1.25 miles a 5am! I've done 2 walks (smoke breaks) while at work that were nearly a mile and I'm getting a ton of work done!!

MLK day and a day off work

I am feeling way better today!! yeah me! I'm not 100% yet, but I feel so much better. I'm going to play on the wii a little today to get in a little movement, but not much. I intend to continue to rest up so I can hit the ground running again tomorrow.

I'm making progress and I have to admit I'm proud of myself!! My oldest daughter has been great to tell me how proud of me she is for sticking to my plan. That makes a Dad feel great!!

I can do this.....i CAN do this......i can DO this......i can do THIS.......

Have a great day Sparks!!

Well I'm feeling better today, but not 100% yet. The diverticulitous attack is getting better and I've been able to eat a piece of toast!! That's actually a big deal right now.

I weighed yesterday as I normally would and so far I've lost a total of 15.2 lbs!!! WOO HOO

looking forward to walking more this week

    The weight loss is great, but not at the cost of your health.

Hope you start feeling 100% soon.

I am frustrated today. I've not been able to walk as much as I'd like to and that is upsetting me alot. I am able to work out on the wii, it's movement and calorie burning, but it's not the same.

everybody pls pray that I will soon be able to walk NORMALLY and get back on my 3-5 a day track!!

    I have been there too, I couldn't have wanted to walk outside if I wanted to. God was dumping buckets of water down all at one time. Keep moving, maybe work on ssome upper body until you are able to walk normally. When I sprained my ankle I invested in a set of free weights and I at least felt I was moving forward. Hang in there.

    Do what you can. You will be back to full steam before you know it. If you push too hard, you will be down for much longer.

    Hang in there and you will heal up and be able to walk and jog and run in no time, but it just seems like forever

    I like to call this; life gets in the way. Right now I'm being plagued by a gimpy ankle when I need to be training, but we've got to adapt to things. Nothing that's worth anything comes easy.

Get back to it once your body allows it.
