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.
