Hello long-lost Sparkers!

I guess I'm the one who is lost, or have been. I have to say it has been tough going. I still haven't gotten access to the health club here (WHY!?!) and haven't been able to figure out how and when to fit real fitness into my day. I'm not walking my full 10,000 steps a day several days of the week - mostly because of the weather.

The little 10-minute videos here and there help a bit, but I just can't count them as a "real" workout. They are just keeping the memory of fitness in my brain and body.

Food-wise I've been having good and bad days. Many, many bad days. Still, I'm bringing my breakfast and lunch to work and eating healthy snacks. Dinner is my problem. It seems to be how I relieve stress. I'm trying to break this though. As the weather warms up, or at least as the sidewalks thaw from all the ice, I'm taking the dog out for longer walks right after I pick him up from daycare. Maybe this is where I fit in a workout a few days a week.

It has been two months now, and I'm still trying to figure this new life of mine out. It's been really tough. Some days I think I've got it all down, and other days, like today, I really wonder what the hell I'm doing with my life.

I'll get it sorted out.

Hope you are all doing well. I miss our quality time together!

    This year has been a little rough start more from some than others. Make sure you take your time. If the 10minute workouts don't seen like real ones you can always add a jog around the house and then do another 10mins.

    God bless,

    There is no way I can fit exercise into my schedule in the morning. I just get up way too early, so I HAVE to fit some walking into my lunch break (I go to a vacant office, eat my lunch the first half of my break & walk in place while I read my Kindle the second half of my break). Then, 3 or 4 times a week, I swing by the gym on my way home from work.

    I fit in a really long workout on most Saturdays, simply because I have more time. Sunday is my break. Either Tuesday or Wednesday, I don't go to the gym at all (depending on traffic & my schedule -- but I have my gym bag in the car both days, just in case). I still do my 30 minute walk at lunch every day that I'm at work.

    You just have to find a way to get it in there, even if it's in small chunks. You're a very smart lady. I know you can do this!!

    We've missed you!! emoticon emoticon

    You can handle this. Just sit down, breathe, and decide how many workouts a week you want. Then put them on the calender. You'll do it. I know you.

    I hear you. It sure can be tough sometimes. I am fortunate in that we dont have ice on our walkways and I can get outdoors if needed. I don't know what I would do if I couldn't. Hope you can get into that gym soon. If not, rest assured that Spring is around the corner, or so they keep on saying. Sending you "WARM" wishes.
