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: 19,537

Fitness Minutes: 24,766

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.

Thank you for stopping by!
I recovered completely and back to running and doing yoga happily.

It is good you have two yoga studios to choose from, I hope you will enjoy the workouts at the place you go to.
I'm happy with my online yoga videos, as I like to do my workouts at home.

I am resting the knee today and doing house work. I may work out my arms later on with resistance bands and do some crunches. But the house is a mess. Balancing work and momhood and workouts are hard. When I work out, it's almost a given my son will eat out or we will eat late. But, I found a gym closer to where we live that is running a special. I am so excited! Anyway, let's keep strong, so we figure this all out and stay true to our health.

Guess who was able to do two non-stop jogs around the park? Me. But, I have to tell you the early morning cold is a b*tch on both my knees. I also have to get inserts for my arches on my shoes. In fact, I have an insert somewhere. Damn thing cost $70, and I can't find it now.
