emoticon emoticon How many times have you or someone you know set out to lose 50 or more pounds, or exercise for an hour day for six days a week, only to fall off the wagon a few weeks (or days) later? Even when people have the best of intentions and or the willpower to set out and do something huge like losing weight, without a plan or a smart goal in place, they stumble along the way—and are more likely to fail. Now that you've been exercising for 10 minutes a day over the past week or so, it is time for you to set some fitness goals that can last a lifetime! emoticon So get started and plan to win!

Finally it's Summer! We've all been waiting for it. Some fun in the Sun....but, what are we to do if the cold is still hanging around?

It doesn't mean that we should jump off the wagon, stop exercising and start eating whatever we want. A healthy, calorie-moderated diet and regular physical activity are essential for physical and mental health. We can still practice self-acceptance while continuing to work toward our goals.

We can exercise in the house, use Spark People's exercise video's, dance our way to fitness and so much more. Just don't give up and let the blues slide in and up set your balance.

I have faith in you. emoticon Let's get creative!

Did you know working out comes in many forms, and not all of them will leave you breathless and drenched in sweat? “Exercise doesn’t have to be spending an hour at the gym. Just get moving,” even if it's just for 10 minutes a day. “Take a dance class, go for a hike, walk the dog, or vacuum your house. It all counts!” So, yes, those late-night solo dance parties where you pretend you’re Beyoncé or Rita Hayworth are well worth it. Just get your body moving. Before you know it, you will have started a work out routine!
