Here I go...

Friday, February 08, 2013

Ok, I've been fooling around with SparkPeople for quite a while, as my weight and fitness levels fluctiuate up and down. Since now I'm back up in weight and down and fitness, I figure I better change my methods.

I love the information on SparkPeople and, after browsing through many blogs and articles last night, I figure one of the most effective tools might be to jump in completely. Here I go...

- Tracking food, fitness and water
- Writing blogs (eek?!)
- Entering weight routinely
- Gathering spark points
- Trying recipes / printing & using shopping lists
- Reading articles, motivation tips, and blogs

That should keep me busy. I may even look into Spark Coach (what is that?) and joining teams or challenges. There sure is a lot here - wish me luck!

    It took me a while. I have been a member since 2007. When we still had dial-up. It wasn't until this month tha I truly decided that if I was going to do this and do it right then I needed to take responsibility. I bought the tracker for my phone. Yes, some things we have to pay for. It was only $4.00. Not a big deal. Now there is no reason for me not to track my food. It even comes equiped with a barcode scanner so you don't have to look up the food or enter the nutrition info yourself. No excuses not to track anymore. And exercise, I have a bodymedia device I bought last year that I just connect to the computer and all of my calories burned are input. NO more trying to figure out how many calories I burned by trying to remember exactly which exerciese I did.
    Best of Luck on your Journey!!!
