There are many wonderful challenges here on SparkPeople! I have joined a few, but somehow find it hard to continue and complete. I really do want to -
I was a single parent and worked at a company for 30 years - retired - and 6 years ago, moved to Pendleton, Oregon. Now I love to read, knit, quilt, but those are not active enough. I do have a membership at the 24 Hour Fitness and feel so much better when I go even for 20 minutes on the treadmill. But somehow, if I am not out running errands, I just do not go.
My apartment is just above the river and across the bridge (just a block away) is the River Walk Way - a beautiful walk along the river. Right now my excuse is the weather - too breezy - and soon it will be "too hot". Rather lame excuses.
Today I did the bonus spin and won a DVD - now how cool is that!! Perhaps SparkPeople is trying to get me motivated in the right direction. I do feel that the staff gives us such a variety to help motivate even me. I just need to take advantage of all that they offer.
I have not made a visual poster - have seen some great ones that others have made - and perhaps that would be a good place to start.
