To get in a few extra steps and a little more workout, on my way home, I either get off the bus one stop before mine and walk or I don't take the bus at all and walk the mile from the train station.
I like to do this when I don't have time to work out during my lunch break. I know as soon as I get home I won't exercise so my power walking mile home is a great way for me to get some fitness in with no excuse.

This journey on Spark has been a joy. Now that I'm on maintenance, I won't leave. I still have things to learn everyday and maybe I can help someone else along the way. I still track, though not so religiously, still do my fitness and always look for ways to improve in everything I do.
Setbacks in any fitness program are going to occur, when they do we often feel guilty and avoid the things we should be doing like exercise and logging into Spark. The avoidance pattern makes getting back on track all the more difficult. When you are having an off period, make sure you login to Spark everyday. Eventually the down period will pass and if you have stayed connected getting back on track will be easier!!!
