Link to original questions list... we're getting toward the end now... how quickly it goes: www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo

Today's topic: "Is there any form of fitness/exercise that you tried and gave up? Is there any form of fitness/exercise that you would like to try?"

Tried and gave up: Jazzercize, or dance class of any kind. Not for me. I ended up in tears. Twice. I felt so... inadequate, ignorant, and out of place. Even writing about it brings the sting of tears... or maybe it's the melancholy of Autumn joining with that memory! Not... for... me. Don't do anything that doesn't feel like you!

Would like to try? Already doing everything I wanted to try: I swim, I bike, I run, I walk. These work for me. But someday... on my bucket list?

Maybe... just maybe... work on upper body enough to be able to do unassisted pull-ups? Hand over hand monkey bars? Climb a wall? But if it turns out I detest it, I give myself full permission to give up after a single session!

    I do pretty well with basic aerobic moves, but I'm extremely uncoordinated with dance moves. Luckily there is a wide variety of workouts out there to suit each of us. No point in doing something you hate just for the sake of doing it!

    I am not much of a dancer. I have tried a zumba class. It was fun but I simply have no rythmn at all! My hips go the wrong way from what you're supposed to do. I feel like a stick figure in a cartoon! But I will keep trying.

    Wow! Very honest! Interesting too. I had never had a stitch of dance training in my life, nor did I ever consider going out to do what they call 'dancing' in a bar. I even missed my high school grad being in the hospital so missed the classic dance lessons given to everyone for the prom. So taking Zumba was far and away outside my comfort zone for this klutz with two left feet. Yep, hide in the back far corner of the class was me when I tried my first class. Yes, I struggled. Mightily. I would be going one way and the class the other. I would be at least two steps behind. My feet didn't go where my brain was telling them to go. But I LOVED the music, and was lucky the classmates & instructor were so supportive. Its not who looks the best or moves the best, the bottom line is just to move your body and have F.U.N. Everyone high fives after a class. Its like no other class I have taken. I am so sorry your experience was so horrible. I guess I got lucky with the people I took it with. Today, I keep up pretty well, but some of the moves can still stump these old two left feet. But I am just there to have fun, a relaxing break from the hard driving bootcamps and boxercise classes.
Each to his own. So glad you found what works best for you!

    I agree. I HATE stuff like Zumba.

I started reading the Triathlete's Training Bible last night (wow!!! SOOOO good and SO worth the $35...seriously...and that's only after ONE chapter!) I suppose I knew this in the back of my mind, but to read it was pretty cool...with swimming, biking and running, you are working almost every muscle in your entire body.

That is just a bit mindblowing to me. I might still be in my tri honeymoon phase, but I could kiss the person who invented it!!! It is such a perfect blend of physical fitness!

    LOL ... Yep! I'm totally with you on the dance class thing! I always say I would NEVER do Zumba in a group session after trying it with a DVD at home. Someone would seriously be calling me an ambulance thinking there was something really wrong with me! I'm with you ... I really prefer the "natural" kinds of exercise for my body but I'll try just about anything at least once - provided some of them are in the privacy of my own home with no audience!

    Very good self awareness! Thanks for another honest blog, especially as far as your dancing attempt.

But didn't you leave out something? Yes, you bike, swim, cycle, walk, but you actually did a triathlon (or more than one?) and color run and mud events with obstacles. You have achieved the appropriate military fitness expectations. Your willingness to tackle goals and achieve them is amazing!! Can't wait to find out how that unassisted pull up training goes. My money's on you, and if that ends up not to be for you, I bet you'll find another challenge!!

Today's topic: "When did you incorporate fitness goals into your healthy lifestyle? (Before starting to lose weight, during weight loss, after goal weight, etc.)"

Good topic... in fact, a fitness goal WAS my motivation for the current healthy lifestyle "push". I was heavy AGAIN... and I wanted to be as fit and active as I had been a year and a half before. I've fought this fight many times... the fight to make being fit a priority.

It's so easy to lose it (that sense of priority)... and when I lose it... everything seems to unravel from the inside out. So... BEFORE starting to lose weight would be the motivation goal.

However, I had a line to get to in terms of weight before I would let myself start training to jog/run: 150 pounds. I figured my old knees would not take jarring at higher weights than that. And when I reached the designated scale weight, I added that element into the fitness goals.

    I always loved to exercise, it was the food and surgical layoffs that derailed me and caused the yo yo with the weight. Things I have done: karate, water aerobics, paintball (I LOVE this and wish I could get back into it -played in competitions for 10 years before the knees went south), hiking, walking -I used to walk from one end of my city to the other, but now its too painful on my joints walking on pavement, so I live for the weekends when I stay with Mom to get the woodsy trails. I also did Natulis machines and dryland aerobics. There is nothing like enjoying being active to help keep the weight off..
Good on you being careful not to start to run until you felt fit enough. Extra weight on the joints doesn't help!

    When fitness is the priority (not just "weight loss") . . . . yeah, I think that helps it stick! For me the determination to do everything possible to reduce the chance of recurrence of breast cancer . . . . so "health" which definitely includes "fitness": that was key.

    I was much more active, especially when I rode horses years ago. Then I had some issues with my legs and had to stay off my feet (still do) so am limited to what I can do. So I have to take it easy and not go nuts when I walk and chose my exercises.

    I've always enjoyed exercise at every size -- was kind of a tomboy growing up and pursued dance pretty seriously as a teen and young adult, loved aerobics, step aerobics, water sports,tennis, skiing, etc. throughout. Somewhere in the 40's found high impact sports were over and got into water aerobics, walking, biking and weight lifting. Probably don't do as much as I should, but I enjoy what I do!

    My fitness goal was brought on by being diagonsed with osteoporosis and being told that I need to start taking meds. Well I read all I could find about the meds and decided that I was at more risk of a bone or hip breaking after taking the meds than before. So I got my lazy A$$ off the couch and started walking everyday. I am now walking at minimum of 5 miles per day and doing ST. My weight has never been an issue I am average between 113 and 117, so my goal is to continue to improve my overall bone and muscle strength.

    Fitness goals were part of the healthy lifestyle goals prior to joining Spark. Once I realized that I wasn't maintaining my motivation with the fitness goals, I realized I needed to do SOMETHING for accountability and maintaining consistency. That's where Spark helped.

Having serious health issues to contend with (knee replacement 2007, hypertension 2009, type 2 diabetes 2010) I HAD to get my arse in gear and make ME a priority, make fitness a way of life and that's what I did.

Today's topic: "What are your current fitness goals? "

I mentioned yesterday my training for a half marathon in Florida in mid-November... with a "to finish" goal. And a social goal to meet a couple of Spark friends I haven't yet, in Slenderella61 and Debra0818.

But that's just the current event I'm training for. My major fitness goals remain:

1. Don't get injured.
2. Maintain the functional fitness to be able to keep doing the things that bring joy into my life.
3. Don't wait to do things I want to so "someday" but work actively toward them TODAY.

Goals for the next year: get through THIS Winter without a significant regain of weight or loss of fitness.

LIFE doesn't have to be LONG to be meaningful. But to SEE the meaning myself, I need to live mindfully, day by day. Training is all about remembering what I want... it helps with that mindful focus.

LIFE is good. Spark on! emoticon

    I like the "don't get injured" goal. I don't like pain and exercise has to be fun. As a consequence, I often stop when I feel a twinge. I have had one injury from training and I recovered in a matter of days. My husband, who is always telling me that I don't train right, pushes and pushes and pushes himself. As a consequence, he is injured more than he isn't. The most recent injury is quite serious and will probably require surgery. I hope he learns from this.

Besides, if you get injured, then all the fun stops cold.

    I have to admit I'm not really big on structure when it comes to writing down and working toward fitness goals -- I'm more about loosely following what my body tells me it can do and pushing a little here and there to increase its functionality. As a result, I like goals like your 1-2-3 because they're broad enough to allow flexibility but specific enough to take you where you want to go!

urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=5038746


Today's topic: What is your current workout/fitness routine?

You'll be sorry you asked. emoticon

I am currently training to STAY in shape so I'll not embarrass myself in the Women's Half Marathon in St. Petersburg Florida mid-November. To do this, I'm following Jeff Galloway's "to finish" training plan, rather loosely.

Monday is a planned rest day.

Tuesday is a 30 minute run, which I do after work. If I'm feeling ambitious, I toss in a pre-work swim, so I don't lose swimming!

Wednesday is cross training... for me, I had designated Wednesday as strength training, to get one day a week of this in the mix. Lately, I've been skipping a few of these, so need to get back to it.

Thursday is a 30 minute run.

Friday is a planned rest day.

Saturday is a long run day every other weekend (unless I'm racing on Sunday)... last Saturday was supposed to be 12 miles... I build a mile every other weekend... except when racing... sometimes a shorter race substitutes for the long slow distance builder and I make adjustments. On the weekends it's NOT a long run, it's a shorter one.

Sunday is cross training day (unless I have a race). If the weather is nice, I want to make this a biking day... but of course, today being the first day of autumn, the weather could start interfering any time now.

So, in short, my workout routine is undergoing seasonal adjustments. I hate transitions and have been having a hard time this past week, so I gave myself permission to "adjust" back to my traditional "line in the sand". My line in the sand is my work-break walks, and some Spark strength exercises. But starting today... back to business!

    Its great to have back up plans. The seasonal transitions is the worst for me, especially as our freeze-thaw-freeze-thaw climate makes the streets and sidewalks very icy :( The cold will also prevent me from getting to my gyms as will any amount of snowfall. These darn scooters are only designed for moderate climates, not the frozen North! Oh how I wish I could have summer year round!!! People who live down south are so lucky!!! But I do have plenty of DVD's to keep me occupied in my own home, will just miss the fabulous hot tub :P and my great instructors who push you to the limit!

Link to original question list from TanyaP71: www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo
urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=5038746


Today's topic: Did you or do you have any disordered eating habits - binging, purging, excessive calorie restriction or excessive exercise? How did develop (or how are you developing) a healthier relationship with food?

First, of all these mentioned, the only one I have not EVER done was purge. However, the "excessive calorie restriction" and "excessive exercise" was restricted to a single summer of my youth, when I was pretty ignorant.

The binging? Remains a problem at times, as recently as the past week... but is not as severe as it was in my youth. Since giving up soda, I stop sooner, even when I've gone into "I don't care" mode.

How I have learned to cope is to examine my feelings, figure out what's eating me, and get honest with myself. This helps me get back to more balanced behavior with food. Sometimes I find that I have not been properly nurturing myself in other ways: sleep, rewards... or that I've been training and did not compensate with the correct additional nutrition. I make corrections!

Will I ever have the "natural" healthy relationship with food that a "normal" person has? I don't think so. No more than an alcoholic can have a "natural" relationship with alcohol. BUT, I know that with the willingness and ability granted to me, I can BEHAVE better with food, and enjoy the food that I plan into my days.

    "I don't care mode" rings a bell with me, a result of frustration, usually directed at myself because I'm not (my body's not) responding the way I think it should, as fast as I think it should. It's hard to remember you didn't get here overnight and you can't change it overnight. I also fall into "I don't care land" when dealing with my family (all male) who just don't "get it"!!
Also the sleep thing...makes a huge difference. Sometimes hard to get the rest you need with a family, but, if nothing else I absolutely insist on 8 hours at night. Every night.
Thanks for your insightful blogs.

    It takes courage for us all to look @ our eating habits, because in one way or another it is a disorderly relationship w/food that got us into the weight problems in the first place.

Thank you for this blog. It keeps the internal dialogue going with my inner self to keep the food relationship healthy -- eat to live, not live to eat.

    Finding a way to have a more balanced relationship with food is something I strive for, too. Old patterns have a tendency to resurface but we remain aware so we can nip them in the bud sooner. emoticon

    You are doing way better Barb. Because you are capable of stopping it when its begun. You are maintaining your healthy lifestyle in the long run and that is what counts. Everyone is going to have slip ups.
You are getting that bucket list done and will be a survivor!

    I cannot say I ever got into excessive exercise, though I have always regularly exercised no matter my weight. But the bingeing, oh, la la! A lifetime companion, with small episodic exceptions. I'm hoping to change that right now, and I'm right there with you in willingness to do so. Pray that with conscious contact, it will ever be so (though I know occasional rocky times will happen).
