I Love to Walk and Bike

Hi - I'm Pat and I've joined SP on the advice of my nutritionist. I love to walk, garden and read. I've been in and out of SP since 2007 but see real improvement in my nutrition when I'm doing SP consistently. I know I have to log my food choices and exercise. This is my year. I can feel it and I will succeed!

I think you're right about the regular commitment that housework needs. When I was a SAHM, I regarded it as my job, but after that, it wasn't a priority. I think it's like Sparking - I have the time now, so maybe I can get it down.

Thank you for commenting on my walk blog. It's true the city is interesting and I do like living in the city. Tokyo is interesting but mostly not beautiful, and some of the interesting things are difficult to photograph. I want to try next time though.

Thanks for your comment on my blog.

Looks like you are making good progress. Way to go! I like your pictures of Turkey Run State Park. We are up north, but have hiked there and have some pictures of some of those same spots, I think. I love hiking, too. I have been doing more jogging and really would like to switch to trail jogging, but it is harder and takes more time than just going from the house, so I will work into it slowly, I hope.

Keep I the good work ... Slow and steady is the key to lifelong changes!

Thanks very much for dropping by my blog. You've probably done it already, but the Pilates videos on Spark gave me some good training.
