Day 5

Monday, May 07, 2012

This is only my second blog entry but day five of using Spark People

For the first five days I have concentrated on the food. Today is water and walking day. I have put it off for five days (and weeks since I have said I need to get out walking and just haven't done it).

Today I also did a motivational poster as suggested by Spark People.

I'll let you know how my walk goes and if I get the 8 glasses of water in. I generally come close, but some days are better than others. If I get two in while I am walking, that will be good. I think I can get two with lunch and two with dinner and I only will have 2 left.

Edited to add: Did two laps around the lake in my subdivision (well large pond). Uh need to do that at 7am and not was hot as blazes. Got my legs all stretched out and it took some effort but didn't kill me. I probably could have done a third lap but didn't want to over do it in the heat. I will try to get the walk in early in the morning tomorrow and increase to three.

I will try to do 2 laps this afternoon while my boys are at swim team practice...there is a park right there perfect for walking.

Did drink 2 glasses of water while I walked.

    Welcome to SP! Little steps are always best at the beginning because if you go to fast or cut out too much stuff, your going to go crazy and give up (trust me, this has happened to me like 3 times).

    Water is sometimes difficult to get in, but don't forget that certain foods have water too. And anything unsweetened, like tea can count as well. I saw this great thing on Pinterest where a women had two white water bottles, and marked them in even section with a time stamp. That way she knew how much water to drink by say 10am, 12pm, 2pm, 4pm. It was really a great way to help you get your water in throughout the day.

    Hope that helps. Good luck!
