I discovered that sitting in front of a computer for 5 years, in addition to bearing 7 children, rendered me stiff as a 150 year old (or, hopefully, worse) overweight and out of shape. Sooo...now I am turning that around, one stretch and one step at a time. I'm in on the Spark Virtual 5k walk/run :)

Weight Goal: 130 lbs.

Fitness Goal: 300 minutes/weekly

My Program:
Initially, instead of deleting foods from my life, I added foods. I added high-protein smoothies for breakfast and lunch. I added lots of fresh veggies and fruits. I added lean chicken breast and fish. I added so many foods I wasn't hungry for chips and soda and hamburgers and fries and candy.

I couldn't even do a single sit-up or push-up or jumping jack, so I didn't do those. I started with stretches. The stretches made me feel so much better I started walking. The walking made me feel so good I started jogging. The jogging made me feel so good I added weight training.

I told my family how much fun I was having and they saw how good I was getting around and feeling. They decided to get in shape, too. So now we encourage each other.

I found Spark... LOVE IT! So now I make sure to log in a couple times a day and use those nutrition and fitness trackers. They really help me know how I'm doing toward my goals.

It works for me :)

I was sparkin’ on my spark page
And the sound of gloomy dread
Sent a shiver through my innards
When the power went off around me
Bringing panic left unsaid.

Rolling thunder in the distance
I’ll check the weather map
Ah…no internet connection
I’ll fix my mornin’ smoothie
Ah…no blender for my frap

I’ll call a friend for consolation
I jumped to grab the phone
Ah…this phone is useless
I’ll do my dvd walk
Ah…now I’m really all alone.

What to do, what to do,
I’ve completely come undone
Wonder will it take long?
Do they even know my plight?
Then the power came back on.
