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: 18,329

Fitness Minutes: 22,164

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.

I know. I only got on the treadmill once and may do some more later on tonight. 20 minutes of intervals and 20 of walking were about right because my ankle started to cry or cried I do like this little machine though. Anyway, I have to revisit what I'm doing or try to regain my balance.

Hi Deb...on the spins, you have to get 25 points with sparking, like logging food, exercise, commenting on blogs, etc...to get the bonus spin. The bonus wheel message will pop up in a couple places-on the start page and sparkpoints page. They have spins on the teams now too...you get lots more points. Don't know how to do that one, since I have no teams at the moment. emoticon

We tried several of those app. and just gave up. When we did our virtual 5k on SP together. We ran two app. at the same time. Mine stopped and his kept going! Weird! The same one too! I would have been mad if it had failed just having one! emoticon
