walking to the beat

Monday, March 07, 2011

I'm so excited! I was trying to figure out the perfect music to make a playlist to walk to...and I stumbled across this site...


you can search their database for songs OR download the "BeatScanner" and figure out the beats per minute to your favorite songs!

    I've been messing around with the BeatScanner and you can figure out the bpm manually or have the program do it for you...

it's so hard!

Friday, February 18, 2011

I have lost weight before...several years ago...and since then I have gained it all plus some. Actually more than just some. I was doing great when I was losing weight...I was exercising and eating right, drinking water all the time. I would exercise because I loved how it made me feel! I felt great back then! Everyone commented on how good I was looking.

but now...

I feel tired all the time and I have ZERO motivation! I'm on meds for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, acid reflux, asthma and allergies. I know that if I lost weight a lot of those issues would probably correct themselves...although I have always had allergies and asthma.

I was a skinny kid...and adult...could eat anything and everything! I didn't start gaining weight until I was pregnant with my daughter. When the OB Dr told me I need to watch my weight I was like "what? watch it pack on?!?" I had NO IDEA how to watch my weight...I had never had to do that before...When I went in to deliver I weighed 187 lbs. ...now I'm at 257 lbs! That is just crazy! And it make me cry to think of how I have let myself get like this.

My Dad passed away in 2001 from a massive heart attack...he had high blood pressure and high cholesterol. You would think that would be all the motivation I need. I breaks my heart to think I could be headed down the same road.

I hope that SparkPeople will be the help I need to get my ass moving and eating right. I KNOW what I need to be doing...DOING IT is the hard part!

    It is hard but YOU ARE WORTH THE EFFORT! I agree with PP that small changes would be a way to start. Replace one glass of pop for a glass of water today. Add an extra freggie (fruit/veggie) to dinner. Just get up and march in place for 5 minutes at a time. emoticon

If you feel like you have zero motivation, then try to focus on small changes at first and just do your best to honestly track track your food without worrying too much about the calorie range. I made very small changes for about 6 months before everything sort of "fell into place" and I found myself carefully tracking my food and following the SparkDiet closely. So don't overwhelm or burn yourself out! Get back to the very basics and work back up.
