second blog for today LOL

Sunday, April 07, 2013


Been doing a lot of thinking since I blogged this earlier.

This is what I decided. I don't know how many times I have answered other people's blogs saying "that we are only human".

I need to accept that yes I also am only human. I also can make mistakes.

I was saying before I had lost my motivation but now I really don't know. Yes I put obstacles in front of me but I was still exercising.

I do need to lift the intensity of my exercising. But really I can not blame lack of motivation for this.

Because of health problems I did lead a sedentary life before Sparks. I am doing so much more than I have for many years. Who would have thought I would have gone over my niece's and cook for hours on end. Look after my grandchildren for hours. Plus all the other things I am now doing.

I have realised that I have a life and I am now living it. I can dream and have goals.

Yes my weight loss is slow but I have lost 21 kgs. or 46 lbs since I have been a member. Which I am determined never to find again.

I was also blaming being on the puter for too long, I really just need to be more creative in what I am doing. Time management. LOL

So that is what I am going to do lift the intensity of my exercising and increase the of combination of exercises to include cardio, strength and stretching.

Yes I do still get tired and achy but hey get over it as I am always going to have these problems because of my health issues. But by losing weight these may improve. I can only hope that it improves the kidney disease.

Goals at the moment is;
increase exercising

increase the type of exercises to include cardio, strength and stretching.

to lose 5 kgs by the last day of May. 48 days or just over 7 weeks. works out about 900 grams per week.

I know I can do this.

    Your progress may be slow but it's there. You give more encouragement to people like me who have health issues no where near as severe as yours. I see I don't have the excuses I thought I did. There are several spark people I look up to to inspire me to keep trying and you are one of them. If you can keep trying with all your health and family issues so can I. You are doing this for you. You are making yourself a priority and helping your family as well. I can do the same. I know you will make another goal soon because you are that sort of a person. emoticon emoticon

    I am sure with this winning attitude you can do anything you set your mind to! It is not easy having medical problems and issues as they can something get in the way of exercising.

I know this as my slight Arthritis plays up sometimes and I really do not feel like exercising some days but if you know to still exercise on those days just go easy maybe do only 10 minutes once or twice a day and that is it and select an easier exercise routine for that day you should be fine!

good on you for the excellent efforts you have made so far with all your weight loss goals!

Remember you have to enjoy for the long haul what you do as this is not a diet but your healthy lifestyle so you need to be able to maintain it for the long haul.

BUT.... emoticon emoticon emoticon

Take care,

    I like the emphasis you are putting on being fit and healthy; weight loss isn't everything, and I personally think the other two are the most important things to aim towards. Good luck in carrying out your exercise plans, Wendy.
