Welcome to SparkPeople!

Are you competitive by nature? One of my daily goals is to hit 100 SparkPoints. When I do that, I've not only read articles, I've interacted with other members by reading and commenting on their blogs and writing my own blog. 100 points gets me here and gets me active each and every day.

When I started, I made the commitment to workout daily and write a blog about it. On days when I don't feel like doing it, I think about the blog I need to write and I certainly do NOT want to write that I was lazy and did not work out.

Maintain your goals on your SparkPage (that's what all the goal-setting gurus write about) and make the goals public on your page. Write about it on your blog every day.

Weight loss = calorie maintenance, cardio, and strength. Calorie maintenance is every day, cardio is at least five days per week, and strength is 3 to 4 days per week. I believe you need all three for a successful weight loss and fitness program.

Above all, be consistent. Doing something toward you goal every day will pay big rewards over the next few months. You can do this!

I've just restarted my SparkPeople page because I got distracted from the first attempt. Just wanted to say hi, introduce myself:

Recent College Grad-unsure where life's going to take me, but figuring that out is one of the goals for my summer
Proud Corgi owner-my dad has been taking care of her for about a year while I was unable to, but now I've got her back and I feel like things make sense again
Avid Traveler-Just finished a year of traveling and taking classes abroad and off campus. Mostly European travels, and I'm thinking of using the desire to travel as a motivational tool.
Wannabe Outdoorsperson-I've done a few trips of seakayaking and white water rafting, ziplining and hiking, and I LOVED them all, and my lifestyle is much more sedentary than I would like. I'd like to get outside more, even if its only for a walk around the block.
Outgoing-I love hanging out with people, meeting new people, and learning about different people and cultures.
Animal LOVER-I sometimes like animals better than people. Also, I volunteer with rescued seals and sea lions, and that's one of the most amazing experiences ever.

I'd love to make some friends on here that will help me stay motivated, and keep me accountable, instead of letting me ignore what I'm trying to do here when it doesn't go my way immediately, or its harder than I anticipate. Just send me a message and say hi!
