There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results. -Kenneth Blanchard

Hi WHEREISCLARK, I read your blog and you might want to also check out the smoothie and juice lovers team. There are loads of ideas and if adventurous, you might want to even try one of the green smoothies. They're not half bad (tasting) but oh so good (for your health). I'll send you an invite from there. Good luck with your juicer. -donna

I've been looking into a team that has goals that fit the lifestyle I can handle and the fitness that I'm aiming for. When I saw the team for the "vertically challenged" I nearly burst out laughing. I've referred to myself as being V.C. for years. At 5 feet tall I have run into issues with fitness equipment not being usable...expectations that I shouldn't be as hungry as "normal sized people"...what the heck? Etc.
I used to be fit and firm and then got lazy and side tracked after having my last two babies while in my thirties. So, here I am...trying to start over again. The desire is there. I'm motivated on so many levels. Creating the time seems to be an issue for me.
My focus right now is increasing my cardio and then moving into some weight training. My muscles remember...but cardio has always been my weakness. I think if I start there and build a good habit of it, then everything should be easier in the long run.
I'm hoping to loose inches more than weight. I'd like to be healthy and build muscle again, great way to boost metabolism and keep burning calories but I don't want to be scrawny.
My hope is that doing this will help to lower my blood pressure, increase my energy levels and help me to feel more accomplished and positive.
Friends are welcome. I really don't have anyone local that is willing to do this with me so online support is a fantastic aspect of SP for me.
Glad to have found this team and I look forward to working on goals with you all.
