2. Is there a gym near your work you can hit before you commute home?

1. I like things like bananas. They're easy to grab and go, and it's a banana. Celery with peanut butter is an easy one to have on hand, too, and requires very little prep. It all really depends on what you like. Taste is so, so subjective. My sister buys pretzels, and those are her go-to snack, or chips and salsa, neither of which sound appealing to me at all.

0. Also, hello! I'm starting today off by filling up my reusable Star Wars waterbottle (16 oz) and hitting 30 minutes on my FitDesk stationary bike. Aiming to average above 15 mph today. Wish me luck!

May the Force Be With You!

hi, CAROLINES14.

snacks that taste good is dependent on what you like and it also depends on if you can eat during your commute. do you drive or ride? if your hands are not busy there are more options. i uses to use homemade egg muffins (make a batch on nonwork days, nuke for a minute in the microwave), protein bars, string cheese, i buy snack size bags. i know they cant hold more then 3/4 cup so it makes portion control of some items really easy.

as for workouts - i dont go to the gym. i do workout videos. i have some low impact ones if i am not feeling very ambitous, some 10 minute ones. basically anything that will get me to start.

Don't forget to be awesome.

Hi, I am new to SparkPeople. I am looking for some advice in two specific areas I struggle in:
1. I need some snack food ideas that are fast, and taste good (I am trying to eat 3 small meals a day + 2 smaller snacks)
2. After an hour and a half commute, how do you stay motivated to go to the gym?? When I get home, I am exhausted and starving...
Advice appreciated!

Hey everybody, just dropping in to say Hi!

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose hear

Thanks to the people who noticed i was MIA last week.
I moved last week. the movers took apart my exercise room on wednesday last week so i did not get to use it that night. my room is now set up in the new house. i started my new job on monday and i am still working on organizing my new house. it has been a very mentrally, physucallly and emotionally busy time. now stuff is starting to calm a bit for me. my dh is still stressed but it may be 6-8 weeks before he calms down

I have a chest cold and sinus infection. I can't rest and relax and our temps will be 75 plus all week.I enjoy this time of year but hate the sickness that comes along with it. emoticon I'm ready for bed and its only 10am. I have zero motivation. But on a plus side I haven't touched Pepsi in almost 2 weeks!!! emoticon

i gained weight the last few weeks. i reduiced my soda intake over the last few weeks, i was hoping it would result in a lose. but i am not going to quit. i am going to keep at it for at least 2 more weeks to see if that helps reduce the cravings,
i did update my numbers/goals on my home page, the treadmill at work is broken so i am not able to walk as much as i normally do. o i will have to be more dillignet about eating less and exercising with more intensity.

Don't forget to be awesome.

So I'm doing a C25K program (only in my 1st week), and I had a few days in between day 2 and day 3 as I hurt my back at work (day 2 was on Wed, day 3 was the next Mon). Note to self - don't let more than 2 days pass between runs. I felt like all my hard work was erased. Needless to say, I counted day 3 as a warm-up and am redoing it later tonight (in the evening hours when its not like 95 degrees outside).

On the plus side of this story, Monday I was pretty busy in my schedule, and instead of taking my hour break between activities to sit at home and play on the computer, I attempted day 3 of the program. Totally never would have made that decision before. Woot! Something good must be happening in that brain of mine :)

I'm so glad I'm not alone. I went to the endo doc this morning and he basically tells me that all my issues are due to weight and if I lose weight it should all go away. He also put me on a med for diabetics however I am not diabetic at least not yet. I am going down a road I don't want to. Starting Sunday since I have to work tomorrow my butt will be at the gym. I want to lose 20lbs before my next apt with the endo doc in November.

I'm just as bad as you! The gym is two blocks from where I drop my youngest off to school; literally like 6 blocks from my house. I just need to get in there. I have been exercising though but just cardio at home. While you haven't made it this week, I haven't made it ummm at all and I've been paying for it for like almost two years! Ridiculous. Ok, that's it. I'm GOING to go next week! You are too :) We have the same amount to lose also, love it.

Great job on working with a diabetic diet. That's what I'm trying to avoid personally but it can catch any of us if we don't start on a better path.

emoticon well I have not made it to the gym this week. I have no reason not to go. it is across the street up the block from me. Im just being lazy. I have been tracking everything I eat however which is good. baby steps. I now have my hubby on a strict diet since he is now diabetic and I am doing all the meal planing and prep. Its been very hard but I think we are both getting the swing of things.

So excited to find people that have similar goals to help keep each other motivated. That's why I always end up giving up...lack of motivation and people showing their support. It's hard to change your lifestyle, even if you know it's for the better.

Thank you, 94Transam! So, it is okay, then, to eat those calories...it won't keep me from my weight loss goals?

The initial calorie count they give is for a daily non fitness day. Your BMR (basic metabolic rate) burns calories whether your moving or not. Your body needs more fuel if you're working out, so its normal that the calories will adjust according to your activity.

Hi, everyone. Just a question. When I exercise, I notice that calories are added to my daily calories for what I can eat. Isn't it counterproductive to eat back the calories I burned exercising?

Hi folks, I am new to SparkPeople and finding it helpful. Spending a lot of time thinking about food! Not all bad, but it is a little tiring.

I have a chronic pain condition and my weight was starting to seriously threaten my ability to manage my health, such as it is. So my arthritic dog and I are losing weight and adding more activity.

Also means I can't use food as a way to cheer myself up. Playing with dogs and singing still work though. And knitting keeps me on an even keel.

I may pop in and out of team so if I miss something and look clueless, please be kind and let me know:) With CRPS, some days are better than others so I try to join in while I can.

I am currently exploring loving-kindness meditation and trying to shift my existence towards one of well-wishing towards every person. It sounded pretty goofy when I first heard of it, but it is starting to feel more like a worthwhile challenge. Anyone else working on that?

My goal for June is to get my butt back on track! I have put on about 10 pounds since Jan and want to get them off, plus the weight that I didn't get off before! So, far, I'm on the right track. :)

Hi everyone, I'm not new but haven't posted in awhile. I'm sitting here waiting on phone calls. I work from home and enjoy it but sometimes it can be time consuming when there is no calls and I have other things to do.

How is everyone this morning.

Just like Vegas, I am not new to the group, but I haven't posted in a while on here. Figured this post would be the best way to get back in here. ;)

I had a great day yesterday with walking my pooch for an hour and then had a fantastic tennis lesson in the afternoon! I am so excited to be playing tennis and look forward to playing more regularly now that I have joined the local tennis club emoticon

Chrimsonfyre = Planing flowers sounds great!! i've been looking at my small condo patio area and thinking it really needs a tidy up and I'm waiting a little longer before potting my few planters. I don't want to plant the flowers and have a cold spell kill them!

emoticon what do you all have planned for the weekend? are many of you on a 4 day weekend with Good Friday & Easter Monday?

Hi all
I've had 2 good days - walked to work both yesterday and ran to work today. Got over 10,000 steps both ways and making some changes to diet - tracking and evaluating what I'm eating and working at decreasing fat intake.

Hoping I'll see a change on the scale to make me feel like I'm seeing results I want to see... Making it worthwhile. Although I know in my head there are so many other NSV... The scale number is the most motivating and satisfying.

How are you all doing?

Good Morning :)

Yesterday was a tough day for me. I did well though the day, work was fine. Meals on track til I got home. i ate pizza for dinner (double what i planned to eat) and then i was SLEEPY.. could not stay awake. had no motivation to go walking with my dog. i ended up napping on the couch while watching tennis and hockey on the tv. I did however DRAG MY ARSE TO THE GYM and got 1/2 hour in on the treadmill of walk / run intervals!!

So while the day wasn't what I had planned and it was a struggle to stay on track with my plan, it WAS NOT A LOSS. I got myself moving, i tracked what I ate, I pushed and today is a new day!

emoticon How do you guys manage your days when they go sideways on you?

I've been tracking my foods the last 3 days and realize I really need to do something about my diet... i didn't think i ate that badly, but apparently i need to cut down on the fat!! I honestly didn't realize my fat intake was so high! as in 34 grams OVER the max daily intake. So here I am now on making some small changes.

I usually eat 2 eggs, ham slices, cheese slice on toast. This morning, I changed it to 1 egg, 2 egg white scramble with 1/2 slice of cheese and 1/2 the ham i usually have. I don't feel deprived yet...

emoticon How have you guys modified your diet? are you strict with meal planning or do you eat what you feel like eating? What changes have you made if any?

I'm new to the team! I'm hoping this team is active and that I can find some great support, ideas & enthusiasm from you all! I'm also hoping that I'll be able to help you along your own journeys!!

A little about me.. i'm 36, live in BC, Canada. I'm single, I live alone with my 7 year old dog and 12 year old cat. I work full time as a registered nurse specializing in TB care (so no shift work for me!)

I'm working at losing weight again - i've been steady at 255-257 lbs for the last 2 years regardless of my activity levels and it's time to bump it up a notch and get back on track. My long term goal is to get back to 175 lbs (which was my high school weight) which puts me at about 80 lbs to lose. I recently saw some pictures from 4 years ago when I was my lowest weight (228 lbs) and I was much happier with myself then but it slow crept up again and i haven' been committed as I was when I was at 228lbs. I now recognize that at that time, i was tracking daily and engage with spark groups/challenges and that in order to get 'back on track' i must get back to doing what works! tracking and reaching out to others who understand what I'm going through!

Feeling Awesome! emoticon

Today my coworker asked how much weight I lost, which isn't too much as I've just started but she said it was noticeable! I told her 6 pounds and she said no, it has to be more than that. I told her that I'm not calling what I'm doing a "diet" (bad 4 letter word). I'm just being more conscientious of what I'm eating.

Regardless of what the scale says - that's a great measurement not to mention a great feeling!!!!

hello everyone,
haven't posted in here in quite a while. I'm looking to get back on track and at least tone up for my brother-in-laws wedding at the end of April. If I happen to lose 20 pounds in that amount of time, it would also be great. Congrats to everyone on all their weight loss and accomplishments. Have a great day!!

Hello
Wow today I had my butt handed to me at work. I usually do medication aid but this month I am scheduled to work the floor as a caregiver on rotating shifts. I am so wiped. I wore my fitbit and got over my 10 000 step goal. My coworkers were looking at my schedule and they are like you are never going to get a sleep schedule. I smiled and said maybe not but I am sure I ll get skinny working all these active hours. I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their weekend. emoticon Good night!

Actually...We had a great weekend. We are always on the go with something or the other...but I am a bit kamikaze (sp??)

LOL so Friday with 4 kids home on PD day we went to the museum Mom, 6 kids and our sitter- My hubby was helping a friend move...and that was a long!!! day but great fun! We have a great Children's museum and they went to the IMAX to see the Galapagos 3D so we did well from 11-3 then go home to quick dinner 2 kiddles to Friday evening activities at Church and then...

Hubby and I had a date night!?! LOL it was the beginning of the 3 wks Winter festival here and my hubby is from Barbados and this is his 2nd winter here so...with frostbite warning and an already exhausted momma (who workout prior to walking around a museum for 4 hrs)...was back out on the town same day....We walked about the park were we had a great time saw a fire dance show, stilt walkers beautiful ice sulptures and my hubby...but I was pooped by the time we got home. Total Grace of God our baby slept!!!! 5 hrs straight :)

Today I got kids started on weekend chores, took down my tree, worked out with my girls then went to rehearsals with my girls...( my 15yo and I have music competitions in 3 wks...and that girl is a workaholic like her mamma because she also has a figure skating comp on the same day...praying they aren't at the same times :( ) Made chili for dinner and will finally grace my bed after picking up my kiddle from babysitting for friends.

Anyway tomorrow church, anniversary party for friends, playdates...it never ends...deliberating on either exercising or just stretching? Do I dare attempt it?

Anyway for the past 3 days hit my nutrition goals was not over...so I rewarded myself with a glass of wine :) I know crazy...I don't understand when we are always on the go and busy how I can still struggle with my weight. Anyways...one day at a time...one day closer to swing dancing and belly dancing again. Hmmm maybe a long term goal one day could be to maybe enter a amateur belly dance competition...hmmm...sleep let's sleep first :) Night all...All the best to you folks for tomorrow

But by the Grace of God.

great job with the journal! If you are new to exercise, why not start with just 10 minutes a day? If you are sore, a 10 minute walk should be ok. Just if you are really sore from a strenuous work out the day before, it's ok to take a rest day or a slower day, stretch and heal yourself.

I didn't believe it but journaling about whatever's stressing me out has helped me to stop binging and I've been eating a lot less junk food, now I just need to figure out a way to workout even when I'm sore or tired.

Misty I feel your pain. I have to work this weekend too, although I don't work every weekend it still is a bummer knowing that you can't enjoy it like everyone else does. I do hope you get some time off to enjoy though!
