Slowly getting there...

Tuesday, April 03, 2012

I'm loving the SparkPeople website, and the ways that you can stay motivated and take an interest in your own health. The recipes have been really interesting reading, and I like the fitness and food programmes that are available.
My biggest problem is finding time to take the exercise that I want and need to take, as I work long days - which make staying on course for good food much harder too.
So, my plan involves baby steps - 1. Reduce my bad snacks to one a day, and 2. Take exercise whenever the opportunity presents - no matter how silly it seems, and even in the snow :)
Thanks SpeakPeople for the fun stuff you give to keep people like me involved with fitness and diets, you truly are inspirational emoticon

  Honey I so know what you're going through! I had to take baby steps myself to make sure I didn't get overwhelmed! I had to start the diet. then a week later start working out. Soon I'll be quitting my bad smoking habit!

You can do it! Every little bit counts :) You will get there! You have great goals and ideas! emoticon

    Great goals. And I like the "Baby steps". All the changes we have to make need to be done in small steps/goals. Including your exercise. Blue42down is correct. Look for 10 minutes that you can do some walking or other exercise. Here are some ideas for getting in extra fitness time. 1. Park future away from the store or work place so you have to walk more. 2. Take the stair instead of the elevator or escalator. Great blog!

    Good baby steps!

Remember that it can be as small as 10 minutes of activity. A 15 minute break at work can be time to walk up and down a hallway, up some stairs, or around a block at a mildly brisk pace - and bingo, 10 minutes of fitness. (And getting away from the desk like that is refreshing!)

    Thanks, it's good to know I'm not alone in some of the same barriers. I have a great workout DVD but I don't like working out on the carpet so today I'm going to clean out a section of my basement that has concert floor & set up a tv in there. No more excuses! Thanks for your blog!
