I want to lose 5 more lbs. I plan on running at least four 5k races this year.
I do 40 mins. of cardio 6 days a week. I do an hour of yoga two to three days a week. I also work on some strength training with light weights and resistance bands and enjoy doing some of the workout videos on Sparkpeople.
My name is Susie and I live in Minneapolis, MN.
Start tiny, use a pedometer, it's been a huge help to me. Find ways to increase your steps. USE every tool you have and all the helps here on the site including people.
Celebrate your victory's and acknowlege the bumps in the road but then move back on to the goals. Goals aren't set in stone...adjust, re-evaluate, determine what you are immediately capable of doing or changing and then always think about adjusting, re-evaluating and setting new challenges. I think people start out very hard and with the giant goals which isn't a great way to set yourself up for SWEET SUCCESS!
Start small, celebrate often!

Welcome to Spark. You have taken the first step on your journey by joining! I've been a member a little more than two years. I made fantastic progress and lost 100 pounds in the first year BUT I became careless about nutrition and exercise and have gained 30 back! I became disgusted with myself and closed my Spark account, but soon realized I NEEDED to be here. I'm back using the nutrition and exercise trackers now - they are so important. The sense of community and the friendships I have made here keep me going! Explore the site, make your Sparkpage, join teams, and make friends. You will find this site an amazing place full of encouragement, inspiration, advice, and support. Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with. Good luck! Sheila
