Assignment 2 - updated my Spark page

Assignment 1 - I need a new exercise plan. I am on a losing streak this year and now is the time to add new physical goals to prepare for kayaking and other things I will do in the future.

At present I am consistent with my daily walk but need to have strength training days and focus on whole body exercises. Also time to get a few more pieces of workout clothes and ditch the ones from 40 pounds ago.

Cardio Plan - increase the intensity and minutes of walking. Make a park route that includes coming up the big hill. Treadmill - set it up in games room, make computer desk and add a TV. Walk 15 minutes daily minimum.

Strength Training - Spark exercises for upper, core and lower and whole body exercises. Work on plank daily!

Yoga - TV show

Diet - I will continue my current eating plan - increased fiber and stay within calorie range. Again - cut out the glass of wine before dinner.

For 56 days of the Challenge - I will exercise daily for a minimum of 15 minutes. I will follow The Full Plate Diet and watch the calories and portion sizes. On my Team page I will record my daily exercise and Living the Good Life Points, and on Saturdays I will weigh in and record it. As I have time I will check in with my team and leave a comment on the Discussion Board, and read and comment on blogs.
