Frustration and Momentum

Thursday, January 31, 2013

I had spent about 15 minutes writing away non stop yesterday when my computer crashed. It's done that a few times lately. Sigh.

So, no epic entry for you to read.

I'm wondering about the spark points are they only good for the 'virtual' prizes I found the other day? There are no tangible prizes?

I've had a good day exercise-wise. I didn't think I'd be able to get out when it was pouring this morning so I thought right, I can't do the walk so I'll do just dance instead. Did my 3 songs. Got to my 500 points and went yay. Apparently it's meant to be the equivelant of 30 minutes of walking. I can't do a lot of the leg stuff because of my knee. But, I still built up a sweat.

Then I got home from running my bro down to the bus stop - half way there I mentioned it was Thursday and he realised he didn't actually need to go into town. He agreed to take Flame for a walk if I set up the printer. Went to do so and my niece was on the computer so I decided to take her out for a walk instead.

My knee that has been giving me grief for the past few days didn't hurt at all! I know it's there. It's twinging but I'm just working through it. I had yesterday off from the walk because I read on here about having a day off to let muscles repair. (and I danced instead.)

So, I think I might recruit my bro once a week to take Flame out for her walk and I'll have that as my day off.

Challenges really do make a difference don't they? I told a couple of my friends about sparkpeople yesterday. I know they downloaded myfitnesspal but I don't know if they've joined up here.

Yes, one day I'll get around to putting my own stuff into the nutrition tracker and using it. But, right now I'm juggling enough. One step at a time.

    That's exactly right, one step at a time. Sounds like you've got a good grasp of baby steps. Before you know it you'll be high stepping!

    I think spark points are only good for spark goodies but then again they are kind of just to say, look what I did. :)
