I prefer to exercise at the gym, but don't always have time to get there. In order to keep myself active at home, I have utilized my Wii (Wii Fit, Dance Dance Revolution, Walk it Out). It is fun, entertaining, and gets the heart rate going!

I have had many desk jobs where I sit at a desk most of the day without much activity. My secret was to get a more active job where so that I can get in my exercise as a work. I don't really like sitting at a desk all day anyway.
I recently got a job as a PCA (personal care assistant) helping people in their homes. I am active the whole time with this jobs. Other active jobs might include waitressing or building homes.
The best thing that has helped me is being accountable for the food i eat by the tracking and it is pretty easy with the sparks people.com way!! I know what i have consumed and i don't have any more if i have hit the limit or i can reward myself with a snack if i do really good!!!
The other is tracking the work outs!! It means i am getting up and moving instead of sitting on my Butt watching tv and getting more over weight!!!! I have been more active and i hope i will b want to be even more active once i get back into shape!!!!!!!Go Sparks people!!! YOu all are great!!
