I accept the St. Louis team challenge: Exercise at least 30 minutes a day, 3 days a week and post your exercise for that day on your team thread.
I used to work out all the time. Now I'm inconsistent and definitely don't do enough, so accepting this challenge may just be what I need to build up my consistency again. In my previous blog, I mentioned the new classes available to me for stretching, balance and flexibility. They begin tomorrow since it'a a holiday today. Looking forward to starting my day with that, then adding some cardio while I'm at the gym anyway.
I'm going to use the challenge to help me put my words into action! It's so easy to make a plan, write it down, say it to people........the challenge comes in actually doing it! I recently bought a dry erase board (at the Dollar Tree for just a buck!), and started writing my fitness plan on it last week. It was a motivator since it's on my fridge and I see it throughout each day! I actually went to the gym twice last week which was up from zero!
I've had 2 busy days this Labor Day weekend so today is a catch-up day for me ~ I finished a craft project, will pay bills, read yesterday's paper, attempt to start a photo book on Shutterfly (40% off sale off everything through tomorrow), plan my fitness/meals for week, and organize a few social plans.
Life is a blessing! Make a commitment to take care of yourself! New motto for the month!

Just another reason to love Spark ~ I can write things like this and no one will judge me:
I'm pretty excited about myself! I've actually worked out twice this week, and tomorrow will make three times!
I also signed up for 2 new classes at my gym that start next week. They are for older adults, like me! LOL! One is a stretching class, and one is balance and flexibility! I'm psyched that one is on MW, and the other TTh, and are offered at 9:00 and 9:30. I'm not a morning person, so if I shoot for the 9:00 class and don't make it, I'll make it to the 9:30! I've been working on going to bed by midnight, and getting up by 8:00 each day. I seem to have more energy already!
Since they are just half hour classes, and I'll already be at the Rec Plex, I'll stay after class and do more. I can either go do strength training, work out in the cardio room on the machines, or go to the pool to do my water aerobics routine. Once the heat breaks, I'll have the option of taking a long walk on the trails behind the Rec Plex that go into a wooded area, creek and all!
No excuses for not working out with this opportunity just 7 minutes from my house! Feeling blessed and motivated!

After a smooth flight from St. Louis to San Diego, I headed to the beach with my sister and bil for a sand sculpture competition. We saw some incredible sculptures and I made my 6,000+ steps including lots of sand walking. It's great to spend time with Dianne, Denny and my nephew Doug. A good day!
