Exercise Streak: Day 3


Monday, May 09, 2011

Hello world!

I have been off and on reading The Spark on my Kindle and I was inspired by the idea of Post-It-Notes declaring what day of exercise you're on in order to hold yourself accountable. Granted, I'm not far in but its a start and no one starts on day 50!

They say that it takes 28 days to make a habit, so here is to hoping!

I have read countless articles about how exercise not only keeps you in shape, but it changes how you think. I can remember not long ago thinking 'Ugh, exercise" but now I can't wait to challenge myself, to push myself just a bit further.

I know I can keep going with the exercise streak, I can be quite competitive when I feel like it, my main problem will be logging the exercise. Enter goal 2, to be more active on SparkPeople. I joined in August but I let myself fall away from the friends I've made and the communities i'm a part of. I don't want that anymore. I want to be a part of it. The support system I know I need isn't going to be found at home so I need Spark!

I'm really excited about everything, even it seems a bit overwhelming. I know I can do it =)

I ate well today, if a little conservatively. I need to work on balancing my meals better so I don't wind up starving in the evening and eating more then I need.

    ok missy! You got me here now we will, together, get on track. We can lead each other into the evil temptations, but maybe we need to lead each other to the better things in life for us both. I love you MORE than a sister emoticon

    Great job on 3 days of exercise. You can do it! I didn't used to like exercise either, but I love the way I feel after I've had a good workout.
