Keep Movin' - Fitness, Fun, Good Health

I enjoy healthy eating and lots of exercise. Love to be outdoors and moving. But with work, family, stress it easily gets overlooked if I don't focus on it. Committing to make it a priority so I CAN live up to the demands of work, family, stress.

SparkPoints: 21,923

Fitness Minutes: 28,673

My Goals:
I have lost almost 30 pounds since starting SparkPeople, and although I am more focused on feeling good and maintaining healthy habits than losing weight, that "almost" is starting to get on my nerves. I want get past that milestone this summer, while the weather is gorgeous and calling me to exercise and eat healthy, fresh foods.

My Program:
I used to go to the gym 3-4 times most weeks and/or jog 5 miles, but it got me nowhere. Sometimes when life got busy i would have a few weeks when i didn't have time to exercise at all. When I started SparkPeople I gave up the gym and started doing 10 minutes of exercise first thing in the morning. A year and 20 pounds later I upped it to 20, and I recently switched up to 30. It isn't easy because I get up at 4:30 am to do it before work, but then nothing gets in the way. I do more later in the day and on weekends move it back to later, but at least 30 minutes happens every day.

Personal Information:
I love exercising outdoors. Can't get enough sunshine and nature! But I have periods where home and work get so busy that I run out of time in the day. So I want to do enough in the early morning so that if life gets crazy and that's all I can do, I'm still staying fit, feeling good and relieving stress. I need it to find the energy and motivation for everything ELSE I do!

Other Information:
My current goals:
- 30 minute brisk walk in the early morning and a 30 minute walk before bed with dogs.
- Strength training twice a week
- walk/jog/run intervals for 45 to 60 minutes three times per week.
- One house chore per evening so I don't spend my weekend catching up
- Log into SparkPeople daily to log food and fitness and give/receive support to Spark Friends.

Your dogs must be sweet, relaxing around you while do yoga : ))
I think animals like the calmness and just being around us, doing nothing, while we do yoga or meditation. This is a rare opportunity for them as we are usually in a hurry, doing things and ordering them around.

Thanks for reading my blog and the praise of my snow cleats ; )
The patchy surface probably makes them wear off earlier.
I usually have a nice even icy surface, but when warmer weather comes, it melts unevenly, so I get long patches of packed dirt or mud, with stones sticking out, and still only 1 of the 16 tiny straps died in 3 winters (I replaced it with a piece of string).
Pavement may make more damage, but I think buying new cleats every 2 or 3 years is a reasonable price for safety and joy.
I feel like Superwoman when I run up on an icy slope!

I think it might be local, if that makes a difference. Have a great week ahead!
