Exploring Sparkpeople

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Today I succeeded again in tracking my meals and doing my exercises. I did the half hour walk and worked on upper body exercises using 5 pound weights as I did yesterday. I got pretty warm from the exertion and toward the end I wondered if I could manage it again tomorrow, or if I should try a shorter routine then. I have that in mind, and will see ow I am feeling tomorrow. Planning ahead - I'm doing it!

See? I am consciously thinking of each day and what I can do to profit myself health-wise, and that is a new and good thing.

In addition, as I mentioned in the title, I explored Sparkpeople more. There are more resources that will be useful over time and I know I will need different ones based on circumstances. I also responded to two Sparkpeople, encouraging tem to continue and giving what ideas I thought they might find useful. I have had similar encouragement from Sparkfriends, and I know it makes a difference, so I hope it will do the same for them.

    *consciously* -- that word alone is a key - I find it so easy to go into "auto-pilot" mode and that's when I mess up and don't meet my goals for the day. emoticon

    Sounds like you are really getting on track! One thing about working out with the weights, you should make sure to give your muscles a day of rest in between. You should not work out your upper body with weights every day, but you can do every other day. They need a day to rest and repair. On the other days you can do lower body or increase your cardio.
