The Christmas Gift

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

Last fall when I was still Sparking regularly, I made a commitment to myself that I needed to participate in at least 30 minutes of physical activity per day along with watching my diet to be successful in living a healthy lifestyle.

Counting the calories isn’t a big hardship for me. I religiously use the Nutrition Tracker in SparkPeople and usually manage to stay within my calorie range.

My main source of exercise consists of walking. I manage to walk at least once a day and try to make sure that the total time walked per day is 30 minutes. On days when the weather does not permit (which means rain) I have a few options. I can either drive into town and walk around the concourse at our local arena, hop on an exercise bike I purchased in the winter and spend some time spinning in front of the TV or use an exercise program my son purchased for me, for Christmas 2010, for my PS2 – Yourself!Fitness.

I have to admit that walking is the most attractive form of exercise for me. The exercise bike sits in my basement and is rarely used. And as for the PS2 fitness program – I haven’t even opened the box, let alone pop it into my machine.

During the last couple of weeks I have been playing with a pound. Up a pound, down a pound, but haven’t managed to lose any more weight. I only have 9 or 10 pounds left to shed and I am beginning to think I need to mix things up a bit.

So, tonight I have made an appointment with my PS2. Hopefully I’ll get further into the game than just setting up my username and specs!
