Secrets of Success

Adding Even A Little Movement




A year ago I could barely stand at the kitchen counter to work as it was painful. After a year of SparkPeople I can not only stand to complete an entire project but now instead of standing still, I try to step in place from one foot to the other or flex my knees just to add a bit more movement to the day. I used to avoid walking across the kitchen to throw trash away so would save it up for a one time trip; now I carry each little bit to add to steps per day.

  • That's emoticon ! I have had a similar experience - not being able to stand at the sink very long - and I make myself walk around the kitchen more than I used to but now I will try some exercise as well, thanks to you! emoticon emoticon - by ONEMORX
  • That is awesome! Keep on keeping on - keep on moving - and remember the saying: "a body in motion, stays in motion". I think it speaks volumes and YOU are living proof! emoticon - by KARENKANDO
