Liz, some one on spark people mentioned the fitbolt.com website. It is website that you can download as a google add on or just open the website, it gives you little 30 to 60 second exercises to do while working at a desk. Stretches, squats, etc. It gets you moving through out the day. You can also set it to notify you as often as you would like. I have mine set for every 10 minutes. I have actually enjoyed it and it reminds me to move more during my days at work. Hope it will help you.

Thanks, DLDMIL and THREEE! I have logged all my food so far. I think I'm in the time of the month where I want to snack more, though; so, I'm not super proud of my restraint in eating today, but it's not been totally out of control either. It's so hot here recently, too, that I haven't yet gotten in my 10 minutes, but I plan on heading out for a walk a bit later when it's cooled down in the evening. I don't have air conditioning in my house either, which makes my work from home job a bit uncomfortable sometimes and, I think, makes me feel more lethargic than I would in a cooler environment. Anyway, I hope you're having a successful Spark day, too! Liz
I'm just joining the challenge this week, but I started looking for challenges over the weekend that would help me build consistency. I had been doing well being active, logging my food, and losing weight about a month ago, but with the heat wave and a loss of a fitness buddy, I've started to feel pudgier again, which is not what I want! So, I went to the gym yesterday, and started out well with logging my food. By nighttime, though, I had overeaten after going out to dinner with Jeremy, the guy that I'm hoping will get to the point of wanting to date me exclusively. I want to spend time with Jeremy, but I know that a lot of the time we are together revolves around meals. I've wanted to go tubing with him or do other more active things, but scheduling and a knee injury for him have kept him from those activities recently. Anyway, I definitely want to do at least 10 minutes of exercise everyday, but I also want to consistently log my food intake during this period.
