If I've 'fallen off track,' I sometimes need to 'ease' back on. I find it too hard to dive in head first. I might start back onto Spark, then track food, and then get back to workouts. We're all different but it works for me. Remember, too, it's not all or nothing. We all slip; the important thing is to get back up!!

I have just started exercising muscle groups hard and have gotten sore, especially my back and arms. Today I took it easy and rested. I feel renewed. Maybe will rest again from exercise again tomorrow. This is a new adventure for me. I am 62 and have not exercised for ten years.
I also am tracking my food choices and set a goal to loose 160 pounds over the next two years. Journaling is so helpful in renewing this goal each day. It is becoming real. Lost 24 pounds in the last 8 weeks. 248
We get so accustomed to working out that when we stop we fail to remember that we have to begin again as though we never started. I avoided muscle soreness by acting like a beginner and taking it easy but making it challenging.
Today I had off and it was my day so I rested, I woke and my hands where a mess so I just took it easy. My daughter called and let me know that my granddaughter cried when she couldn't come here. Daddy was to have her because he was off and mommy worked. That puts me in a bad place. Smile love live
