Becoming a Habit

Friday, August 03, 2012

I'm so addicted to SparkPeople. I'm so addicted to figuring out the best food combinations for the day. Granted I'm still using an "easy way" with my food because of Nutrisystem, but I have been supplementing and adding/subtracting, etc. LIKE A BOSS. I'll be FINE when I'm not on it anymore. And I will probably start to enjoy cooking again when I take the time and make the effort to make myself nutritious (LOWER SODIUM) meals.

I feel better about myself today than yesterday. There are still things nagging at me a little bit but nothing that can be helped. Honestly. I'd whine and complain but it's silly and it's in my head and I'll get over it sooner than later.

I'm debating joining a gym. They are convenient, and if I were to make it a routine then I'd probably do really well with it. But I am worried about contracts and commitments. My firm has a "deal"? with NYSC for $65/month and they deduct it directly from our paychecks and if you join now august is free... but I am afraid to take that leap, plus I feel like $65 is a bit steep. But NYSC is all over the city and who knows what that includes?

Does anyone have gym ideas? I'm not one of those people that is nervous to be seen at a gym, I don't want to go to one that is completely crowded and I have to wait in line to use a machine either. I just feel like that might be my best option... I don't own a treadmill. and say what you will but walking outside and walking on a treadmill are not the same thing.

I just, I feel like I've got/am getting the eating thing down pretty well. I REALLY want to see results and I know that you need to exercise to make them happen faster. So I'm kind of trying to kick my own ass here and get crackin on the exercise.

oh p.s. I created a SparkTeam for Starkid Fans because we weren't represented before and I've got 12 members, woo. but if you wanna join or if you are a member, it'd be nice if it were active... ;)

    I use planet fitness gym. I don't know if you have one in your area but they are pretty common here in MD. They are great, lots of machines and a big variety. I've never had to wait in line and they have a no judgement policy - so you see all kinds of people in there in terms of fitness and age and weight. It is a really pleasant place to workout. Its open 24 hrs. a day and only $10 a month. If you don't have a PF gym but want to join one...maybe $65 would be a good motivator to go?good luck!

    I have no gym ideas EXCEPT maybe visit the place and get a tour to see what sort of lines there may be. You could even ask about crowds. Nutrisystem food - some people seem to like it and others don't. I have never tried it. Gotta say I wouldn't find it helpful as my tastes are just too specific! But if it is working for you, keep on keeping ON! You're right about exercise - Gym? Home? If you think you'd get into the habit, try it! Unless of course they want to sign you up for LIFE with no way out of a contract. Find ways to get the exercise in! It REALLY helps! You keep your Spark BRIGHT!

    Nutrisystem is not the easy way out, LOL, I still have a box and a half of it from LAST YEAR in my closet because I just did not want to eat it anymore. The discipline to eat that stuff day in and day out is a challenge and you are doing SO GREAT.

    I am addicted to Spark too, but at least we have a good habit lol. ;)

    I loved going to the gym. I will be rejoining one in Sep or Oct. It is a very useful tool in getting healthier. There are always times that you can go, where it is not as busy. Once you join, you can figure out what times are best, as far as the crowds go. It sounds like you are really on the right track!! emoticon emoticon
