I'm Back and here's my reflection on week one
Saturday, January 08, 2011
It's happened! I have returned to Spark People with new zest and zeal. It's been an awesome week and This has been an awesome year so far!
My Daughter and husband have both joined Spark People and we are working together to change our life style. I am so psyched as family rules! Yeah!
I've been doing all kinds of tracking. Goals exercise foods and sodium oh my! Going low sodium to help control my blood pressure is continuing to be a HUGE challenge. It's frustrating how much sodium is in EVERYTHING! Actually having it all added up has been a real eye opener. Adjusting to low sodium is hard enough what makes it harder is that the world seems to be working against it. Check out restaurant nutritional information sites and you'll see what I mean.
Today I completed week one of the 28 day boot camp official challenge. This is HUGE! I'm actually succeeding at adding strength training to my life. Granted I'm a Weak Willy and I'd be embarrassed to have anyone see me at it. 10 minutes is about all I can stand at this point in time. Amazingly enough I am still psyched enough to start week two! YEAH!
We're also doing cardio, mostly together as a family. YEAH! Walking briskly. I have to admit we're more out of shape than I wanted to be. It used to be we could do five 12 minute miles in slightly less than an hour. We'll get there again. We just have to do it. Put one foot in front of the other and just do it.
Also, this week I've met some lovely people on Spark people. Coach Nicole in boot camp videos. People on week one with me. And for that I'm truly grateful. Encouragement of one another makes all the difference. We can do it. We can do it. Just put our minds to it!
