Looking for consistency

My workout philosophy has always been that if I'm not really working out intensely, then what's the point? But after a couple of years of knee problems, once my knee started feeling better, I decided to aim first for consistency and then let the intensity follow.

I started SparkPeople in April 2007, wanting to lose about 20 pounds. I lost about 12 before the knee problems started in earnest, and in the subsequent 2+ years gained 27 pounds, primarily from the inability to workout ...

I started SparkPeople in April 2007, wanting to lose about 20 pounds. I lost about 12 before the knee problems started in earnest, and in the subsequent 2+ years gained 27 pounds, primarily from the inability to workout with any real level of consistency because of pain and fear of more pain. I'm now almost back to where I started in April 2007, and I want to continue being consistent with my workouts and consistent with my eating.

Nikki,

I'm glad you are enjoying them! I figured it might be useful to someone considering Making the Cut to get a feel for how long and how difficult they might be. Thanks for the encouragement!

I love reading your Making the Cut blogs as a fellow follower! Jillian's workouts are tough, and I drip with sweat the whole way through too. Good for you for sticking through it all--you're almost there! Can't wait to see the results. You're body has good to be responding well to the program, it's the hardest workout I've ever done, but I LOVE it.

Welcome to the Couch to 5k running group!!!! Stop by the message board and introduce yourself to the team. On the team page you will find a thread for each training week. Click on week one and post were you are at in your training. This is a great way to meet others who are in the same phase of training as you. Some of my best friends were in my training week one and we worked through the program together sharing victories, questions, comments, and ideas. I look forward to learning more about you. I will be popping in on the Weeks 1 - 3 training to help answer any questions that might pop up and to cheer you on to your goals! Be blessed! Be a runner!

Hi Sassy! Welcome to A Spark in the Dark. Also Welcome to Sparkpeople. I've been hooked on Sparkpeople since I started. I've learned so much from everyone, and made so many friends. Even when I'm running alone, I often think of our team. See you on the boards! Julie
