End of Week 1

Saturday, February 12, 2011

I began my Spark journey a week ago today and am happy to say that I'm even more excited about this SPARKPEOPLE than I was last week! I've had extra time to explore the website this week, due to 3 1/2 snow days, so I have much better understanding about what I'm doing!
In addition, I've made steady progress towards my BIG goals, by successfully completing my smaller goals!! Who knew I'd actually like "strength training"? Who knew getting healthy good good be so much fun? ? ?
Come on week two, I'm ready for you!!!

My biggest struggle this week has been in the area of technology, which is definitely NOT my strong point, there have been a few times that my stress level has gone up, but I've been pretty successful at controlling my stress as well!

Stress Busters

Thursday, February 10, 2011

One of the Spark teams I opted to join is the Stress Busting Challenge; I chose this as one of the teams I wanted to commit to because I've seen the negative effects of stress not only in my own life, but in the lives of those around me as well!!
I've read several online articles on stress, but am especially fond of one that listed 7 ways to BUST or RELIEVE stress! Out of the seven choices the one that I was most drawn to today, was Call A Friend.. There is something about the voice of a good friend that can lift one's spirits and relieve stress.. So that's what I did today... Here's a thought... what if my phone call acted as a stress reliever for the person I called!!

Make it Happen !!

Thursday, February 10, 2011

My desire to lose weight and be more physically fit is up to me to make happen! I can't talk about it and even make excuses as to why I'm not exercising, which believe me I've done... for way too long!
I'm doing a really good job of watching my diet and journaling every thing I eat, which has paid off in weight loss; but now it's time to take the next step and get physical... So today I'm going to get the Wii out and get up and move!!! I'm going to make it happen!!

Getting healthy for good.

Wednesday, February 09, 2011

Why is this time going to be different? Why indeed? Well, I'm going to be fifty in a little over a year and I've always been told that after 50 it's nearly impossible to obtain an ideal weight. Wow, it gets harder than it's been the last twenty plus years? That knowledge alone is a powerful reason for me to FINALLY do the right thing for myself and my body by getting in shape! Warning to the extra pounds I've been lugging around for far too long... I'm coming for you... so be scared, be very scared! :)
