This site is huge. It would take hours a day to get through everything.
I'm also frustrated. I joined some challenges and it feels like I need to enter things multiple times to have my streaks show. I'm missing things. For example, I'm in the Spark Solution right now, using SparkCoach, joined the 10 minutes of exercise a day challenge. I forget to go everywhere and click on everything. How come if I enter 10 minutes on my tracker it doesn't feed to all my challenges? Does anyone have any hints on how to keep things straight?
I had a spinal tumor removed in January. I was on leave for three months. I just need to get myself moving again. I finished physical therapy and feel like I have so far to go yet. My eating habits are good. I know there are a lot of great new recipes on here and am excited to try them. It just feels like everything is trying to change my eating habits. I just need to physically get myself motivated and moving. Don't hate me but I have lost 14 pounds without really trying, that's not my goal. I want to be able to move pain free and have some flexibility first. So I haven't been doing the food tracker on a regular basis. Once I get moving I can work on the food end. There's always room for improvement, right?
I returned to work full time and it takes everything I have to get through a shift. Most days I fall asleep in my chair with ten minutes of being home. I am a nurse and run a 150 ft hall for 8-10 hours everyday. It takes even more to convince myself to do an additional 10 minutes of exercise when I get home. I've been walking 10 minutes during my lunch break (when I get one) so I can at least say I did that much.
I need suggestions on ways to get myself motivated. I know how important this is. I work on a physical rehab unit. I'm telling people everyday about what they need to do to get back on their feet. But yet I struggle to myself motivated and doing what I need to do. What have you done that worked for you?
(I'm sorry this seems so scattered. I'm exhausted and it's hard to concentrate to type up something that makes more sense.)
