Hi PHP and
to the team! It is hard to work and try to fit in an exercise program - been there, done that
Why not try to find some activity you can do on the weekends and maybe one or two evenings a week. Do you have access to a swimming pool - you can water jog - great exercise and no impact on joints. When I was working full-time I would go for a walk at lunch time every day. Just remember anything that gets you moving is GOOD. Dance while you dust; march while you do dishes - think outside the box. That said, it takes an awful lot of exercise to lose weight, You need to cut back on calories and change your eating habits if you want to seriously lose the pounds. I faithfully use my Nutrition Tracker - my favorite Spark Tool - and I watch my ratio of carbs, protein, and fat each day using the daily report. I have failed many times in the past because I wasn't making changes. This time I'm doing well because I've decided that if I kept doing the same things over and over again, nothing will change. Spark works because you eat good healthy, balanced diet - not eliminating any food group, and you lose slowly enough to make it stay off. You have to find what works for you. By studying my daily Spark Reports, I found I was eating way too many carbs and too many Lean Cuisine type meals - high in sodium. I cut back on the pasta, beads, rice, and potatoes and only eat Lean Cuisine when I have no other option and I've started steadily losing weight.
Just use your Spark Tools, stay active with your teams, fit in as much activity as you can and are comfortable with, and enjoy the journey
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He wlll make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
