I am just starting to do a few blogs after being on the website for 2 plus years. This is not my strength, but can see how it can be useful. I do read others and enjoy reading some of them so why not try it.
This is the 9th day into the program and i can truely say that i'm doing well. I walked the treadmill for 30 minutes every day but Sunday. This week is the treadmill for 20 minutes then i'm using the ellipitical trainer for 20 minutes. That machine is killing me but i'm focus to stay with it.....I have not got onto the scale! I'm a little afraid to get on. My mind is going "What if I did'nt loose not one pound" or "What if i did only lost 1 or 2 pounds". I will get on it September 1st, let my daughter read what it says and if she smile then I know i'm on the righttrack... but if she look a little too happy then I will definitely know I'm really on the right track....Sparkpeople Track that is!!!!! So, I will continue to do the very best at this time!!!!!!!! YEAH ME!!!!!!!!!!
Believe it or not, when you are tired after work the best thing you can do for yourself is put on your sneakers, take your i-pod with either a book on tape or music, and take a brisk paced walk for at least 30 minutes (an hour is better if you can fit it in.) When you get back home, you will find that the days stresses are gone and you are awake again.

This week I tried a new type of exercise........Pole Dance Fitness. I enjoyed it. Not only did I burn calories, but it made me feel sexy and alive. The girls there were so supportive and made my first week comfortable and fun. I think I have found a new workout routine.
First day on the program. Wish I could say I did great but still trying to figure out the site and looking at meal plans. I've been working out (going to Planet Fitness 5-6 times a week) and that has helped bring my cholesterol and triglycerides down but I haven't done anything much to my diet and, thus, I haven't lost much weight. I'm being more active (just purchased a cottage on a lake in June and go swimming almost every day and kayaking with my daughter 3-4 days/week) and its helping with muscle toning. I just have to get with the program on my diet! Harder to do for me!
down 17 lb. since June 14...very pleased with the program....thanks

First day on the program. I did drink plenty of water, but having difficulties trying to find time to do 30 minute workout. I enjoy reading everyones comments and also the information on this program. I guess I could be doing some type of movement while on the computer, maybe some stretches or something. Wish me luck :)

I am new. Over 15 years, I had 2 surgeries that left me with few exercise options. " No crunches for life" the surgeon had said. My weight kept going up - mostly around the middle. Then I saw the plank exercise on Spark. This I can do. I have, in the past few years, kept up with treadmill walking and the Zumba. Together with this plank exercise, I feel a renewed vigor and incentive about exercising. I am not interested in flat abs, just a couple of inches off. That's all I want now.
Mine is on a personel level. I can't figure out how to get myself out of a rut. I feel ilke my RELATIONSHIP is FALLING apart. I get told that i'm to big , and that i don't care about myself but when i do start showing that i care about myself IT'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH. So i don't know what do to. I know i post alot of postive stuff for other people and i'm HAPPY with ME. But my relationship is failing as a result of it. Someone please help me.
