Stay focused on watching my calorie intake and make sure I continue to move every day. I learned the hard way that when I leave sparkpeople I gain weight. I am tired of taking weight off only to gain it back.
I started out doing Billy Blanks DVD...moved on to Turbo Jam~ loved them both! I join the gym in the winter. But in the spring, summer and fall I've been running.
I am Jenni from Ohio (North East Ohio...right on the PA line)
I have been married since 1985, and have two daughters Both are students at YSU right now. I love to travel, and dabble in photography.
You and I --- we're struggling too much to find our places.
We gotta CARVE it out ourselves. I know how hard it is - I'm struggling too. I love that you have a restart date for yourself. I am here alone for the holidays so I'm going to try hard with my "free time" off work to find a spot for myself. Going to try to carve that time for exercise.
I hope you're doing okay. I am thinking about you on this journey.
Sounds exhausting - I hope you are taking care of yourself as well. You are so sweet and caring to do so much for the people in your life.
It is Friday, and it's so easy for me to talk myself out of working out. Gotta stay motivated when off of work, on a Friday!, which is tough. I hope you get to your Turbo DVD!!! I'll check in with you tomorrow and see how it's going :)
WHEW girl, sounds like you've had some life changes of your own.
I'm so, so sorry to hear about Ashley and Fluffy. My heart hurts for you and your family -- it's so hard to lose a pet.
And a wedding! And a move! And being a caregiver to your dad! My goodness. I would have stress ate myself out of house and home (and my pants!).
I'm so glad to be back too - I hope we can motivate each other again :)
What's your plan today? Going to get a nice brisk cool walk in today? I am at work now, but am hoping to motivate myself for a short run after work.... I'm holding myself accountable. Hope you're able to get out there!!
Thank you for your comments on my blog. The blog was written on behalf of all older members and those younger ones who one day might be in the same situation!! I feel that the site serves a valuable purpose but that a lot of the people who it could really help are being frightened away by the problems caused by the changes. After all the fact is that the more members that belong to the site, the more money can be charged for advertising and the longer the site will stay free!! I find the advertising annoying – and use an advertisement blocker but to many older people who were not bought up in the computer age, finding and installing an advertisement blocker is beyond them!! Yet it is these people, on fixed incomes who so need the help and company the site gives
