looking forward to healthier living by getting moving. as a 50-something diabetic with arthritic joints it has been too easy to stay in a comfortable sedantary rut. since finding sparkpeople a year ago I have cleaned up some bad habits and replaced them with water and walking. I find courage to try new activities through the exercise videos. after a year of staying the course with learning new eating habits, measurng portions, pre planning meals a week at a time I am finally starting to see the scale reflect the hard work and lifestyle changes.
I have completed round one of the Spark Solution Challenge- it was the 'learner's edition' for me. We will have spent 3 weeks on a family roadtrip vacation and then 2 weeks back at work and getting kids ready for school. I am redoing the challenge in September and adding in a combination of the 28 day boot camp, Coach Nicole's total body sculpting and Andrea Metcalfe's dvds Cardio, Strength and Pilates. Those 2 ladies keep me feeling good about moving.
Since starting spark my diabetes medicines have been reduced to half dosages- that has my endocrinologist very happy. It is another 9 months until I see him again- so I will keep working hard and see what the pay offs are by then
