Healthier Habits Lead to Lots of Improvements

Sunday, August 19, 2012

SparkCoach gave me this task today: "Blog about all the ways in which you've noticed improvements in your life since adopting healthier habits."

So I decided to tackle this with a list of just some of the improvements I've realized since following SparkPeople these past few years. Here it goes:

- Learned that I really like vegies
- Found new vegies that I never tried before, and liked them -- this gives me more to choose from
- Walk the stairs in my house without getting winded
- Finally got use out of my home gym equipment LOL
- Don't have to squeeze into too tight jeans
- Lower back does not hurt everyday!!! Should have put this one in the #1, 2 and 3 spots!
- Better posture
- More self-confidence
- Can workout longer and harder
- I'm stronger!
- Have a better assortment of clothes
- Sometimes get family to walk with me
- Help hubby more with outside work. I enjoy the extra exercise and no longer get worn out so quickly while doing it.
- Don't get winded walking up our long driveway

There are many more; but, this is a good sampling. I hope all my Spark friends are enjoying some life improvements through healthier lifestyles too.

See you soon!

As always,

    I agree wholeheartedly, Merle. While I have not been as successful as you have at meeting my weight loss goals, I have certainly achieved many of the things in your list. I have never felt so healthy in my life!

That is quite a list of accomplishments. Thanks for sharing!

    Great list! Your list inspires me. I want those things for myself, too, especially less back pain, better posture, and more self-confidence. I will work towards getting those things, too. Congrats on your success!
