Part one was written sometime in January or February. I was just so excited with my phone and having the SparkPeople and SparkCoach apps, an app to track my groceries. Yadda yadda.
I have a couple of new apps. (just the free version to see if I'll use them.) They are 7 minute workouts. I am thrilled to announce that I used it today.
The reason why I looked for some apps is because I had a 30 day challenge that I was planning on doing. Thought I started, it did not get off the ground (more like I did not get off the couch). Following a piece of paper does not thrill me.
I don't have a DVD player, so home videos aren't an option.
What motivates me is fitness classes. So until I make more time for fitness, SparkPeople videos and this little app seem like the best options.
I am on a good streak of fitness. Not an everyday streak, but I'm getting into a better habit and physical activity is at the front of my mind.
I am hitting my workouts (mostly) and making changes in my food plan. My house keeping and weekly/daily chores are getting done. I'm taking time to play with my son and to be a good partner to my husband.
I am thrilled.
I am not getting on SP because I'm finished.
Its only 10 minutes, but I don't wanna (insert whiny kid voice here).
I gave myself some slack this week, but I am going to put in an effort to log in in the days coming up.
My favorite day was Sunday. I found that I would not be going to the gym (oi, still paying for the membership) so I packed my son in his wagon with a snack for him and water for the both of us. I walked 1 km to the pet supply store and picked up 2 40 pound bags of kitty litter. I then dragged him (24 ish pounds) + 80 pounds (kitty litter) back home. Then I ran stairs for laundry, no sauntering for me.
When I joined SP I joined with the intent of turning things around. I started, I fell, I started again, I fell off again. I attacked head on, but then I fell off AGAIN. This next picture/quote sums up how I feel today.
I have been snacking every night, whether I am hungry or not. Last week I said enough. I eat a good supper, after supper is done - Kitchen is closed. I posted this on my fridge.
