Reports and Goals - the first week

Friday, May 28, 2010

I really sat and looked at all my reports and goals. I haven't achieved all my goals and my reports definitely show my weeknesses. I still eat too many carbs and not enough protein. Did anyone else have this problem? How do I adjust my diet better? It has been an eye-opener for me. I will try to keep improving over the next few weeks.

  


aha moments

Friday, May 28, 2010

I actually had two aha moments this morning. I re-read the articles on warm-ups and cool-downs and drinking water while exercising yesterday. I made a conscious effort this morning to do just what the articles said to do. And I really felt the difference!

  


I have a new goal that has helped me tremendously!

Thursday, May 27, 2010

This has been my first week as a member of the Spark community. This has added meaning and goals to my life at a very crucial time in my life.
My marraige is not working out. This has added so much stress in my life.
Another stress is that I am unemploed at the present time. I have been out of work for 1 year because I broke my back Easter of 2009. Two surgeries later, I know have a clean bill of health and have started seeking employment. It gets very discouraging at times.
Being a member of Spark has added a much needed purpose to my life. I now look forward to working out and eating right and tracking my progress. i have learned about new recipes and have added new excercies to my schedule. I've already made new friends. These friends have helped me through some rough spots just by listening and sharing their stories. This has given my self-esteem a much needed boost. Money can't buy that!

Still trying to priortize and straighten out my life

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

I started on Sparkpeople last Friday. I have been finding so many useful tools to use. The best part is all the encouragement we give each other. I am going through some difficult times right now and I need all the encouragement I can get.

I broke my back a year ago Easter Sunday night. It didn't heal right and left me in pain and with scoliosis. In December, I had an operation to put rods and screws in to straighten my spine. I couldn't do ANYTHING the first three months. It was easy for me to get depressed and use food as a comforter.

My marraige is faling apart on top of the back problems. This added more stress and comforte eating. I will be leaving this weekend to get my life back in order BY AND FOR MYSELF.

I am bound and determined to win over the depression, reach out to old friends and make new friends, and get my body healthy. I want to thank everyone that has encouraged me so far. It means so much to me.
