i just read about great planning for a trip, people setting up their homes and space with tools for good health and lots of focus on getting in that water. This is the best and I am so glad for each of you!! Keep it up.

My little victory is that I think my family finally understands that working out is a part of my life. Our regular fitness center has reopened after their two weeks of scheduled shutdown for two more weeks, only to have the pool remaining closed as they replace the deck. They are letting us use the water park pool for very limited times to do lap swimming and open swims. The only time that it is open for me since I work all day is from 5-6. That is a tough time, but my family has helped me to get there each day! This is a true victory because after a year and a half of me going to the pool, they aren't asking me each day if I am going and they are now putting it into the family activity schedule. They GET it, they get it!! Woo Hoo!!!

Gentle hugs,
Sylvia

I managed to drink 8 cups of water every day for the past few days. I like water, but I've NEVER drunk this much water.

Also, I just rediscovered the yoga mat buried in my closet and bought a food scale. My shop is getting set up. It's going to be a GOOD year...

Congrats to everyone on their small victories!! They may be small, but they make a big differnce.

My small victory: I made it through the weekend and kept on track with my Spark Goals. We travel every weekend and it's so easy to fill up on fountain drinks and fast food. This time I was more prepared. Made sandwiches and brought lots of water & healthy snacks for the trip. And when we did eat out, I made smarter/healthier choices. It's funny... instead of feeling deprived, I feel encouraged & optimistic that I can really make these lifestyle changes!!

So this just happened, and I needed to share with people who can appreciate it!

This morning, I went for a run for the first time in...well since last spring. And it felt great!

But here's the funny/victory part... Some time a go, I bought one of those Nike+ thingers that hooks up to your iPod for tracking running and speed and so forth. It has been missing for Ages and I was starting to give up on finding it. I am currently getting ready to move however, and this evening while going through some boxes, I FOUND IT!

This morning I was reminded of how nice it feels to run, and this evening I got even more encouragement, because I love seeing the graphs and stats about my run that Nike+ gives me!

I have gotten all of my fruits and veggies in this week, even with being a bit sick. I also have continued to get my exercise in. I went to the pool therapists twice this week and learned some new exercises to ramp up my workouts as well. emoticon

Hi everyone!!
All of our successes--maybe even most of them--do not happen at the scales. This thread is a place to brag about something you did that was RIGHT!! It might be that you didn't eat a sweet treat that was offered, or that you did an extra ten minute walk, or that you signed up for your first 5K, or that you received a compliment--or anything good that you want to share.

These stories help us all. It might remind us of something we are doing right when we feel a bit down or it might give us an idea of something else we want to try. They certainly give us a chance to cheer for you. SP members love to praise their team members on!!

Please share your victories here with us. The path to good health is marked with these awesome stories that need to be told!!
