Still moving forward

Saturday, July 25, 2009

I've been away from SparkPeople for a few weeks, but I have been staying on track with my food. I'm continuing to lose weight, but I haven't been exercising regularly. I started a new job and got sick shortly afterwards and kinda lost my momentum. My schedule at work has changed and I'm going in an hour earlier, so exercising in the morning is out. So, beginning next week I will try to workout at the end of my day. I've lost a total of 30 pounds since coming back to SparkPeople about 5 months ago, and I want to keep moving forward.

Wish me luck! emoticon

    I know this blog is about three weeks old, but I still wanted to make a comment.

    It's hard when there is a change in schedule to get a routine going again; but, don't let having to rise an hour earlier stop you from doing your exercise. If it's too hard to get up earlier to exercise, try doing it when you first get home from work or if that doesn't work out for you, try just before bedtime.

    Don't think you have to do all your exercising at one time; break up your time throughout the day. In the morning, you can just do a ten minute video, which may give you a jump start for your day. While your supper's on the stove, get in a few exercises. Be creative; put on some pump-you-up music and go to town! Finish up your day with a few more exercises and then take a warm relaxing bath/shower before hitting the bed; the combo of the exercising and the bath/shower may be just the trick for a good night's rest.

    On your journey to a healthier lifestyle, it's key to work on food intake, exercising, drinking water, and sleep--and all of them at the same time. So, my friend, do get back to exercising. And, don't fret if it's not equivalent (timewise) to what you did in the past; some is better than none!
