If a genie granted you 3 personal wishes, what would you wish for?

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

We have all heard the stories about the magical genie that grants three wishes. What would you wish for other than more wishes?

What are 3 things that today has taught you that you can improve on tomorrow?

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Do you truly want tomorrow to be better than today? Even if you have had an amazing day, there are always lessons to be learned to ensure tomorrow is even better still. Maybe today has given you a tough lesson, or maybe today has just reminded you how great it is to be alive. What have you gotten out of today?

Why arenít you doing what you know you really should be doing?

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

We all have things that we know we really should be doing, but for one reason or another we simply arenít doing them. What is your REAL reason? Not the reason you keep telling everyone, and maybe even yourself. What is the REAL reason? Be honest with yourself even if you dont tell anyone else. It really is refreshing and can be quite an eye opener.

Do you consider yourself a healthy role model for family?


Definitely
Somewhat, but I'm working on it
No way

I would say somewhat, but I'm still working on it.

emoticon What Motivates You???? Motivational Music or Motivational Quotations.



Both. Music really revs up the workouts. Quotes stick in my head{{GRIN}}

People can also motivate me. Team Challenges. Personal Challenges. Great blogs. Encouragement. Lots of things. I think my successes are motivating.

Motivational Quotations or comments move me more. I find I learn something from them about myself.

Do You Participate In Group Fitness Classes?




No I prefer to do my exercises in the privacy of my own home. I can do the exercises when I want and it costs me no extra money.

Do you work out during your lunch hour?

Yes
No
Sometimes, if I have the time



No....I'm a morning person. I like to get it done early so that the rest of the day is mine to do ther things that need to get done.

Do you measure out your food portions?

Yes
Sometimes, if it's convenient
No, I eyeball everything


Sometimes.... I'm pretty good at estimating after all these years of being on sparks. My problem is doing it on a constant basis! emoticon

Spark keeps me accountable, especially since I've been at my goal weight for a while and really need to keep tracking. I'll always be a foodie, but an *accountable* foodie's one who can maintain their weight.

What is your favorite mind-body exercise?

Yoga
Pilates
Tai Chi
Meditation
Other



I have a couple.....I like yoga and walking for the body exercise and the reading of books, creating cards and doing suduko puzzles and crossword puzzles for the mind.

Ever since my college accident skiing, I am not one to really do much outside unless the round is clear. And then it is walk, walk, walk for me. Otherwise, I am doing indoor DVD's from the Biggest Loser.

Skiiing, but I don't get to do it much anymore with little ones in tow. I guess shoveling comes second!

Just because I did not want to try to learn a new sport later in life we just do a lot of walking no matter what the season or where I am. Even mall walking counts.

What Kind Of Activities Do You Like To Do During The Winter Months????



We get lots of snow up in the mountains, so down hill skiing and cross-country skiing is popular. Taking the grandkids to the outside rink is always fun and then a cup of hot chocolate to warm us all up afterwards. DH and I love to go ice fishing with our Adult son on the weekends.

I know for a fact that if he would start doing something himself, I would be more motivated at times. It is hard for me when he is still laying in the bed to get up and get ready to go to the gym.. Thank goodness he has a job that he travels a lot, because when he is away, I have no problem getting motivated...

How does your significant other influence your exercise habits?

Positively
Negatively
Not at all
I don't have a significant other


Not at all....I pretty much do my own thing when it comes to my exercising.

Well I do a variety of things, but the main thing is I do NOT go to any restaurant that I can't order something healthy. I eat a lot of salads out making sure that I order the dressing on the side, and now I have started asking for the cheese on the side as well, and no croutons.

I too rarely eat out but when I do, I try and avoid the bread on the table and make sure that I cut my food in half and then plan on taking at least half home.

I pass on the bread basket.
usually choose the salad with dressing on the side (oil and vinegar)
If there is a salad bar...I stay away from anything with mayo or pasta
usually order broiled fish
baked potato vs... fries or pasta or rice

How do you usually lighten up your restaurant orders?


Ask for no butter/oil
Ask for dressing/sauce on the side
Split the meal with a friend/take other half to-go
Replace meat with beans
Order smaller portion/half order
I don't eat out
Something else not listed here


I will order smaller portions.

Diet and exercise are certainly the way for me. Food is totally a mental issue that I have always gone to as a child. Now as an adult, I want to make sure that my kids are not dealing with the same issues as I am.

Diet and Exercise .....of course

I have a friend who discovered he had cancer and they did an emergency removal of his stomach. Dropped 60 pounds in less than 3 months...
2 years later he's fighting weight problems again.

Addiction to food is a big mental issue...the only way to change that equation is by changing your lifestyle.

This or That..... Weight-loss surgery or Diet and exercise?

Weight-loss surgery
Diet and exercise
Other


I would definitely go for the exercising along with proper nutrition. I'm not much into hospitals and surgery.

Which of the following is your biggest source of stress?

The economy
Family responsibilities
Health problems affecting family
Housing costs
Job stability
Money
Personal health concerns
Personal safety
Relationships
Work



For me it would be the economy and health of friends and family.

"Who motivates you the most?"

Not sure why I have been missing out on this great thread. Would like to just jump in on this question and say that, in all honesty, the one who motivates me the most is ME! :) This is referring to having lost more than 100 pounds over two decades and for the most part maintaining that (with ups and downs) and for daily efforts to be and stay physically fit.

I have a lot of heroes and inspirations in life and even in fitness and weight management, but honestly I am my own chief cheerleader and motivator!

My motivator for wanting to take the weight off and be healty is my DD. I want to be around to see her grow up. But it's my sparkfriends and sparkteams that motivate me each and every day to keep going, especially when I feel like giving up.

WHO motivates you the most?


Partner/Family. Staying healthy for them
Friends. Always there to encourage
My competition. I want to be the best
Religious or philosophical leader
My coach, trainer and/or instructor
Me! Mine is the only opinion that matters

HMMM... This one really made me think... I have been Blessed with Spark so much, that I have to admit if it was not for Spark, I don't think I could do this at all. I have some support with friends, but not as much as it should be, and my Husband is my enabler and my main sabotager, so I don't have any support here at home. I am so grateful for my team members here in this group, and the others here on Spark....

Keep Sparkling!! Hugs! Shannon

For the most part, I view food as...


fuel
one of my favorite hobbies
comfort
confusing
an afterthought
a source of guilt
one of the best things in life
something else not listed here


I have to admit, I think food is one of the best thing in life. I love food!!! I just need to learn to love it, without having to consume huge amounts. If we really think about it, after about 3 bites of anything, we really don't taste the food anymore. I need to learn to eat small amounts and savor them, to really enjoy them....

Keep Sparkling!! Hugs! Shannon

For the most part, I view food as...


fuel
one of my favorite hobbies
comfort
confusing
an afterthought
a source of guilt
one of the best things in life
something else not listed here



I would say ....fuel.... for my body. Although some days I would have to be more careful about portion control.

Oh that is a hard question for me.... I was sort of chunky, but not overly during elementary school, but then I had a Mother that believed you cleaned your plate. When I got into Junior High at age 13, my Mother then decided to make me join a Diet group similiar to Weight Watchers. I was the only kid going, and they started me on a 750 calorie diet. FOR A KID that is insane!! I then had to report in at home, and if I gained there was pure hell to pay, and if I lost that week, I got to come home to food that everyone else could eat, but I could not..We would go places like a baseball game, and everyone else could eat hotdogs and popcorn, but I was made to eat celery and carrots... It truly began my "sneak eating" habits. Oh I got thin, but it was never enough... I did learn to binge and starve, yeah.... By my 8th grade graduation I looked like a skeleton, but had not reached my "set goal" and yet it was not enough for my Mother.... So thru the years, I have lost and gained, lost and gained, and lost and gained... I come from overweight family members, so the genetics figures into it as well.... I worry about my Son for that reason, but I am finally getting it RIGHT!! I have found that I can eat normally and still lose weight, if I make good choices and get active. I has taken a long time to get over the hurts from my youth, but with God's help I will get there....

Keep Sparkling!! Hugs! Shannon

Were you overweight as a child or teenager?

Yes
No
Not sure



No....I was skinny, skinny, skinny. I don't ever want to be that skinny again but I would love to lose those extra pounds that seem to be clinging to me.

For me I am an all or nothing kind of girl. If I am doing well, I keep at it. I am to afraid of triggering a binge, so I keep at it over the weekend....

Every day is a struggle! Well, that's not true...some days are easier than others. Giving myself a break usually gets me in trouble. I count the calories and eat what I'm craving sometimes...but my motto is: WEEKEND not WEAKEND!

Do you commit to healthy habits on weekends?

***** Not always It depends on what is going on that weekend.....but usually weekends are no different than weekdays...

Saturday no. I go out with my mom every Saturday. I try to make healthy choices but it depends where we go eat. On Sundays, yes.

Wish I could say yes but that would be a lie. I try really hard but it does not always work. I have very bad will power I have come to see.

Not always....depends if we are going out or staying home. At home I commit more. If we are going away I enjoy the change.
