I created my SparkPeople account a few weeks ago, and at this point am still uncertain whether I will be able to stick to updating and maintaining my online profile as diligently as some of the other members seem to.
My health and fitness journey has been plagued by sporadic periods of inactivity and overeating. Sometimes they last for a week and other times longer. The last one lasted for 6 weeks and started through a combination of tennis elbow and being seperated from my partner again. I am in a 5-yr long distance relationship seperated by two continents. We are both self-employed freelancers and try to see each other for 6-10 week periods every 3 or 4 months. Its harder for me now than ever before, and since he has no choice but to care for his alzheimer-suffering remaining parent, there is no end in sight, at least not yet.
My situation appears to have a direct impact on my eating and work-out habits. Having stopped smoking 3 years ago, I am acutely aware that I need to stay moving and eat moderately to maintain a lean body at 42yrs of age. So these bouts of sloth are counter productive in the biggest way!!
I hope to gain tons of inspiration from all of you.
Happy to be here.
