Well, I joined the 'Adults with ADHD' team and now that will show on my sparkpage and make everyone think I have ADHD, but actually I don't. I joined it because there is hardly anyone in the autistic spectrum team, and no one posts, and ADHD is the closest thing to Aspergers. Although I don't know if I will be allowed to be a member of a team where I don't have the qualifying disorder, so maybe I will have to unjoin. But it is frustrating there seems to be so few people on the autistic spectrum here, or maybe they just don't find the team, and I want to be part of a team with other people who have difficulties being organised and also sensory difficulties, so I am not the only one.

The gym has a machine that finds out your BMI and your body fat. Here is what it says for me:
Weight: 9st 3lb (58.6kg)
Height: 5' 5.2" (1.66m)
From 18.5 up to 25: ideal weight
Your ideal weight is:
8st 0lb to 10st 11lb
50.9 kg to 68.8kg
Body fat %: 23.8%
Body fat mass: 13.9kg
Age: 35 years Female

Well, so far, after joining the gym last Friday, I've only had one day off, which was Tuesday. I went to the gym yesterday and today, and both times I went to the members area afterwards to study. I think I may be becoming organised. My ultimate goal is to be going to the gym early in the morning, but for now it is just to go to the gym every day, no matter what time.
I can feel the difference in my body. Somehow my body feels more defined, as if it has boundaries. I can feel the muscles inside my arms and legs and tummy - I am aware of them as I walk around.

I do love earning points. And, gosh, it occurs to me that if I could earn points for all kinds of aspects of my life, not just fitness and healthy eating, I could become totally organised. I know that you can get points for 'other goals', but it is only five points. If I were given a possible hundred points to allocate to various elements of my day, such as flossing my teeth, cleaning the toilet, mowing the lawn, hoovering the house, reading certain books and journal articles, etc., then I do believe I could overcome my organisational difficulties.
Are there any sites that do this, I wonder. Or could SparkPeople make it an option? I know I can award myself points in a notebook or something, but I am much more motivated by an external awarder of points! I am actually rather concerned about what will happen when I get the highest trophy - then I'll have nothing to work towards!

Look at my shiny new trophy! It is a diamond shape with a star inside, which is much more satisfying my last trophy, which was an aesthetically unpleasing squiggle!
I decided not to go to the gym today. My body needs a rest. I will go to the gym tomorrow and restart my exercise routine with renewed rigour - or is it vigour? Gosh, I do not know what is the word I mean!
