SparkPeople Stay Fit ~Bit by Bit~ Team Messageboard Everyone knows the best way to reaching our ultimate goal is to split that goal up into smaller more obtainable goals! Here you'll get motivation to stay on track and achieve those goals! SparkPeople Stay Fit ~Bit by Bit~ Team Messageboard Team or No Team Girls I need you all to reply to this!! I see everyone on here doing their own thing and taking part in challenges but not checking in with this team so I think I'm just going to stop it. My posts haven't gotten any replies, maybe a few but very little and I'd really like to help it just doesn't seem to be happening so instead of wasting your time I will delete this team and everyone can move on to something that better suites them! What do you think? <BR> <BR> Thank you, <BR> Andrea Tue, 21 Feb 2012 12:20:59 EST Apology ~ I am so sorry that I haven't been around for this team that I started and I'm very sorry for the fact that I have neglected and ignored my own advice. To take things bit by bit and conquer one thing at a time. I need to stop getting so excited about what I'm started and change too many things at one time. I need to take a week to journal my life. All the things that make me happy, sad, angry, anxious, etc. Then I need to include my schedule, my eating habits, the time I spend watching tv... Wed, 19 Oct 2011 11:38:46 EST When your best is not enough For some time now I've put my best effort into loosing weight, being more active and so on. I've always fallen short and gone into depression mode thinking that sometimes our best effort just isn't enough! <BR> <BR> My husband and I are taking classes to become members are the church we attend. I'm learning so much! While I pray daily and trust in Jesus, it's not enough to do just that. It's the matter of giving oneself over to Him and trusting that He knows better than you! <BR> <BR> S... Fri, 12 Aug 2011 11:15:03 EST Moving Week Hello team members! This week we are moving into our new house! I'm considering that my exercising! I'm already sore! Anyway, next week when things settle down there will be some changes in my life that I'll be happy to report on so stay tuned!. Tue, 26 Jul 2011 09:23:59 EST Hey Everyone! Sorry I haven't been blogging in a while! With the break in and other things my life has gone in a different direction then I planned but I'll soon be back on track! How's everyone doing? Mon, 18 Jul 2011 13:46:45 EST Reset Goals or Not Reset Goals I've been a major way. My apartment got broken into and I lost all motivation to do anything but I realized last night that if I keep on this way that the people who broke into our apartment not only stole physical things buy my sanity and will to be a better person and that is unacceptable! <BR> <BR> I am vowing to get back on track (I was doing great) and lose this weight, eat healthier and be happier! I'm wondering though, should I reset my goals, weight tracker and etc? ... Fri, 8 Jul 2011 09:28:51 EST Ran Over By The Bandwagon Well, these past two weeks I've fallen off the bandwagon and got run over by it too! My resolve is so much stronger today though. <BR> <BR> Something happened in me yesterday that turned everything around! I am proud of myself and hope to I get to a point where this new resolve is the new healthy life that I'm going to just live not something I have to work on! <BR> <BR> Tue, 5 Jul 2011 09:57:09 EST Not Feeling Well This past week has been a real test for me. I've still managed to clean up the house, keep up with my eating and water drinking, but I'm slacking in the motivation department and exercise department. Hope everyone else is doing better than I am! Wed, 29 Jun 2011 11:55:23 EST To track or not to track... So here's my dilemma... <BR> <BR> I currently don't have a scale at home, the one we have has a battery that costs more than the scale its self and it decided to crap out the other day. Now I realize living in a heavily populated area that it's super easy to go out and buy a new one, but working 9 hours a day, commuting an hour each way and taking care of a 2 year old doesn't really leave me much time to run errands. <BR> <BR> Anywho, here's my question for y'all. I've noticed over my 30 y... Tue, 21 Jun 2011 16:51:25 EST Can I Help You Just a simple question. Is anyone needing motivation? Need anything to post? Tue, 21 Jun 2011 11:46:03 EST The "D" word! I'm learning that I'm not on a diet anymore and that is a bad 4 letter word! I'm learning to live healthy not diet! Saying that sounds better, builds more self confidence! <em>491</em> Tue, 21 Jun 2011 09:25:35 EST Challenge #2 Alright ladies~ theres still today to finish Challenge # 1 of getting 30 minutes of exercise in for last week. <BR> <BR> This weeks challenge is going to be a double challenge!

Hope everyone has successful weekends! Sat, 18 Jun 2011 14:00:09 EST I'm slacking =( While I am staying within my calorie rang I'm slacking on getting my cardio in! At work I mostly sit at a desk, but take breaks every so often to go in my private bathroom and do squats or side leg lifts, anything for upper body strength. <BR> <BR> Last night I was supposed to get my cardio in but had to go shopping with my daughter for Father's Day b/c we leave to go out of town tonight. Then there were dishes to do, dinner to make, laundry to fold and put away, dusting to do, getting R... Fri, 17 Jun 2011 09:41:56 EST Great News!!!

Ladies~ <BR> <BR> Do you ever get frustrated that your not seeing results? Whether it be on the scale or on measuring yourself? <BR> <BR> I found myself getting frustrated this morning b/c the scale hasn't changed my measuerments haven't changed but then I had to remind myself that it will take time for the outward changes to show! I'm creating muscle now to replace the fat and that will weigh more but is healthier and will burn more calories. <BR> <BR> Hopefully we'll all be able to mot... Thu, 16 Jun 2011 10:11:26 EST Turn Hate into Like Alright ladies~ <BR> Today I would like you to take a look at yourself. Tell me one physical thing about yourself that you don't like.
