My iPad fits perfectly on the console of my treadmill, so I've been watching a TV series I've never seen before. It is so easy to get lost in the show and forget about the time I've been working out. This is a double bonus-see shows I've never had the time to watch and get in shape while doing it!

I found that going to My Sparkpoints is a great way to explore all that this site has to offer. Until I read all the ways to get points, I didn't know about Trivia, or Secrets of Success. When I click "view sparkpoints" it reminds me of all the different ways Sparkpeople supports me on my fitness quest, with articles, blogs, teams, recipes. There is such a wealth of info here.
One of the reasons SparkPeople is so successful for thousands is because we help people find ways to enjoy the adventure! Whether you're working on fitness, nutrition, goal setting or anything else, FIND WAYS TO MAKE IT FUN!

My best friend who is a track and cross country runner told me about doing the Lying Abduction (or Adduction) exercise while you read. But you can do it while watching TV as well. I love doing this because then I feel more time-efficient!
