On again, Off again, On again.....

Wednesday, October 06, 2010

So I signed up with SparkPeople like 2 years or something ago? I'm not sure how long it's been, but a long time. I didn't post pictures, write any blogs, or even a SparkPage about me. I wanted to keep it all very private. I found SparkPeople to be very useful in helping me be aware of what I was eating, and to be more intentional about my choices. And, I would start an exercise program with good intentions, but not stay with it very long. I used SparkPeople mostly for the Nutrition Tracker, as it was very specific, so I would stay with it longer, but even though I appreciated it because it was so specific, I also found it tedious... so I would eventually stop tracking, and then quit altogether.

So, I've gone through that cycle a few times now. I decided that THIS time, maybe if I allow myself to go outside of my private self and to feel a little vulnerable, and to allow others to read and view my progress, and maybe if I can find a buddy that is local to me... then maybe I'll stay on with my commitment until I've reached my intended goal.

I am currently using Turbo Jam fitness DVD's and also Wii Fit. I had intended to walk a lot over the summer.. but I never did. How sad. It was a lovely summer, and I'm sad that I let so much of it go by. But, that said, it's turning out to be a lovely fall, and I think it's going to be a spectacular winter... so I am looking forward to the coming months as I continue on this journey to a healthier body and feeling better. ~ S.

    Welcome back! I've only been a member since August but find that Spark has so much to offer. It is difficult to start and stick to an exercise routine - I think we've all been there at one time or another. I like walking and Spark has some great 10 minute workouts. It's all the small steps we take that make the big changes. Best wishes to you.
