SparkCoach: marshals the resources for me

There is so much amazing, helpful information on SparkPeople that I could get sidetracked in reading instead of doing! Doing SparkCoach is teaching me a routine for "hitting all the marks" in using the SparkPeople resources and getting off the computer and back into life to put that learning to work... I am losing weight again. emoticon emoticon

Dance when you clean house!

When I need to clean the house (ugh) I put on my headphones, put on a workout station on Pandora, and dance while I clean. My kids think I am crazy but it makes cleaning much more fun and I get some cardio in while I do it, WIN WIN!!

Baby lifts

My son wants me to hold him ALL THE TIME. He's 16 months and about 30 pounds. Sometimes when I pick him up I play with him by lifting him above my head at least 10 times. Its fun for him and a workout for me

When In Doubt...

Do squats or planks! I started out hating planks, but they make me feel so much stronger if I do them consistently. I like to do both while watching tv and squats are great when you're doing something idle with your hands while standing (cough, dishes, cough)...

Puzzled about stress relief? My secret...

For many years I took cigarette breaks to relieve stress at the office. I have been smoke free for one year 1/23/15. This alone relieved the stress of always wanting nicotine. I traded the cigarette break for a puzzle break. I have a jig saw puzzle that I can work on for a few minutes when I need to relax and not think for a minute or so.
