emoticon emoticon I had a full morning at church with VBS. I watched football in the afternoon emoticon my favorite past time during the season. At 9:30, I realized that I hadn't did all my Spark People activities. I was at about 4,000 steps at that time. I thought, I will never make it emoticon but at 11:45 I had 12,000 + steps. emoticon I am so glad that I prevailed and didn't talk myself out of it. My gimpy knee didn't help me but determination and working towards my goal let me talk myself out of the excuses.

Now, it is bedtime and I have set a SHOOTING STAR emoticon goal of being in bed by 12. I know I am a couple of minutes late but I was so proud of myself I had to share with you.

Thank you for all the support you give me Spark People and Shooting Stars. Our plane is headed for INDIA for our next stop. The end is coming soon but I have had so much fun, I plan to sign up for the fall. I love the SHOOTING STARS emoticon emoticon emoticon SLEEP WELL EVERYONE.

    I really needed to read this. I'm still having a tough time dragging myself out of the house to go walking, even though I'm always so glad that I did! I'm hoping that there's a day when I'm thinking, Woohoo! Walk time! But right now, it's a bit of a chore just to get my shoes laced up. 12,000 steps! You're amazing.

    EATS2BHEALTHY: Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog. Please do not be embarrassed at your 5000 step goal. That is great. Believe me, I have not always been able to do this. In fact, I recently had to start at the bottom and have just got back up to where I am now. Remember, any movement you make counts as steps … housework, dancing while you do your chores (I can't do this but you can), playing with the kids, playing an instrument, yardwork; you will find that taking it one day at a time works … you will get yourself up to 5050, 5200, 5500, etc. You build on what you have and go from there. Personally, I think you are emoticon Keep stepping. emoticon emoticon

    ILARIAMARCUCCI: Thank you for asking about the Shooting Stars. It is a challenge group that is a part of the Summer 2018 5% Challenge. Our challenge is to lose 5% of our weight. We go from season to season with challenges that help us with our exercise journey. There are several teams and you choose your team (I recommend the Shooting Stars). Our steps take us to different places in the world. Steps are added together so we work as a team to reach the goals. An example...exercise steps; learning to portion our food to a 9" plate to keep our portions in control; eating a 20 minute meal that encourages us to slow down and enjoy our food. We just left LaPaz, Mexico and are on our way to India at the moment. They post pictures that make us feel like we are actually there. We interact with other members. Watch Spark People for the fall challenge. We all invite you to accept the challenge. Our chores are not hard and are actually fun.

    SCheck5: Thank you.

    I'm trying to incorporate more steps into my day. Right now it's so little, I'm embarrassed to say but having a goal of 5000 steps means I have to make an effort to exercise or those steps won't happen. Congrats on your steps. That's an amazing feat in my book.
