I've been MIA

Thursday, May 27, 2010

This isn't really for anyone else. I'm just rambling and need to get some thoughts out. I haven't done much sparking lately. It's a vicious cycle. I get tired one night so I don't exercise, but exercise will make me feel better. Once I get out of the habit of exercise, it's hard for me to get back into it. Although I know how good it is for me. The past two weeks I haven't worked out on the Wii at all and have done maybe 2 Spark routines. We have gone for walks in the evening though. At least I haven't gained any weight back. I am still doing well with the food part. And drinking 8 glasses of water is just a no-brainer now, it's just part of my life. We got a water cooler from a local company, so we no longer buy bottled water. Good for the environment, our pocketbooks and our health!

Today I had my yearly check-up with one of my doctors. It's been almost a year to the day I saw her last - May 22, 2009 was last year's appt. Well, I know I've lost 17 pounds with Spark since Feb. 2010. I just had no idea I've LOST 28 LBS IN THE LAST YEAR! Wow! I was shocked but so pleasantly surprised. I wanted to do a happy dance. :) My blood pressure has been the best it's been in years also. My dr. gave me a little round of applause she's so proud of my weight loss. I don't know if I forgot how much I weighed this time last year or just blocked it out. I did go back tonight and look at pics from then. I do see some difference.

So writing this has helped me get back "in the zone." I'm ready to get Sparking again!

    Way to go!! It is hard to exercise for me too, I forget to track my food. But congrats on the weightloss. Keep up the good work and remember, It's not about how hard you work today or not, just pick up where you left off and move forward.
