I need some advice please

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

First of all, I do not understand something on the Food track. Which diagram is Sparkpeople recommendations the Carbs. by meals or the carb/fat/protein break down? I have always noticed it but I never paid any attention to it.

Second of all, I am really bad lately at discipline myself when it comes to making time for exercise. I like to exercise at night time when things are quite and I have time for myself. I am asking you to give me some ideas on how to stick to a consistent time to workout. I have tried to put it on my reminder emails as an appt. but I have been ignoring it lately. What can i do to stick to a certain time of day to workout?

Thank you for your help in advance!

    A daily schedule helps me. When I do my best, I get up and exercise. Then nothing can get in the way.

    If I understand your question correctly, which should be following, the suggested meal plans or the cal/carb/fat/pro ranges.

    If my understanding is correct I always thought that if you follow the meals exactly then they should match. If you are picking and choosing from the different meal plans they won't match the stat ranges. You should always try to stay within those ranges. There are plenty of Spark articles that explain the importance of each one.

    From reading the fitness part, your problem is not remembering the time, it's that your ignoring the time and then not getting in your exercise. Then the question becomes why are you ignoring the time. Are you too busy at that time lately? Are you being lazy for some reason? Why are you ignoring the reminder?

    I find that it helps to report to some one each day for a period of time until you get back into the swing of it. Just the thought of having someone else that I didn't do what I know that I should do is usually enough to keep me on the right track. I have had several people mail me daily updates so I would keep them honest. Others use the threads to keep them honest.

    I am assuming that this blog is on several groups. For the Weekly Challenge Team you can report on the roll call thread and we will help to keep you honest or if it is nutrition, we have the nutrition thread or feel free to mail me. I answer all three and would love to help in anyway I can.

    I hope my answer has been of some help.

    I didn't quite get the question about the carbs and the tracker. To get back on your plan, you should set a special time for exercising and don't let anything interrupt this time. Family members and everyone else have to become accustomed to your doing something specifically for yourself.

    I am the same way - finding time for exercise can be tricky.
    Not enough time or feeling too tired is often an excuse... Personnaly, I can't stick to a strick time to workout, unless I am meeting a workout buddy! I find that going for a workout alway makes me feel better and more enregized...
    My secret, I plan my workout for the week and then I stick to the plan, regardless of the time...

    Best of luck! You can do THIS!!!

    Something i tried a time or two was to lay out my work out clothes in the morning before i went to work. If you want to do everything at a specific time maybe attach a note to them with a time.

    Not sure I understand your question regarding the carbs. I look at the results in my end of day run report to see if I am staying within my goal to keep the carbs, fat and protein to the reccomended percentages.

    The best way is stick to the same time of day for exercise is to make it a plan, organize each day to make sure that time stays open for the exercise and the first few days commit to the plan until it becomes a regular part of your day. emoticon
