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.

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.

Thanks for your support. I hope you try XC skiing! I think it could be a workout similar to running, but I usually go slowly - more akin to hiking. The people I see flying by me look like they are getting quite the workout. I usually go for the day and stay out about 2 hrs in the morning, have lunch and then do about 2 more hours.

Thanks for the blog comment! Having the fruits and veggies easily accessible really does help us eat more of them. It's nice that your family is enjoying them too! emoticon
