Hi everyone - I'm Cheri, i am starting over yet again, im not proud to say I have had to start over many times but this times the last time

I'm focusing on this particular challenge, im not good at social stuff but I know support is crucial so I will give it where I can and I hope I can find it here

I started my day today with 30 minutes of strength training and I will do my level best to consistently come back with at least 10 every day

Thanks for being here.

Oh, and please be my friend.

I have been at my goal weight since 10/31/14. I want to join this challenge to be sure I exercise consistently. Right now I go to the gym 6X per week and try to spend an hour there doing a combination of cardio and strength training. I want to see if I can maintain that habit but when I am short of time, my goal is to get at least 10 minutes/day every day of my life.

Hi, I'm Cheri and I joined this challenge because I have a hard time sticking with any exercise program. Even though I am physically able to do more than 10 minutes at a time I have a hard time making it a habit.

Hi my name is Diane and I am trying to establish an exercise routine everyday,even if it's just 10 minutes 3-4 times a day! I work a 70 hour stretch most weeks and fitting in actual exercise isn't easy. I do get about 10,000 steps on my fitbit most days but that's just in everyday life. Looking forward to the challenge!

Hi! My name is Margery and I'm very new to Spark. I have been on Herbalife product for a little over three months now but have not been able to be consistant with my work outs due to being a manager of a 24 hour restaurant. Ive lost 15lbs and 15.5 inches but Im just not happy with how I'm living my life and how easy it is to slip back into old habits. I joined this team to try and hold myself more accountable. Any help is appreciated!!!

Hello to All! I want to get myself back into the habit of exercising, and thought this challenge would be the perfect start. Next year I'll be turning the big 6-0, and it would be nice to start the 60's several pounds lighter and more fit.

Hello, I did 10 two days in a row. I would like to keep this up, build more stamina and enjoy my summer. I live for my grandkids and have to keep up with them. At least almost keep up with them.

Hi All,
I am a long-time sparkler, but am refocusing my efforts to lose weight. I have a fairly healthy diet, but I am inconsistent with exercise and want to build a better habit, so this seems like a good place to start while I also get back to tracking my nutrition and paying better attention to what I eat.

Hi, I'm Lecia, I started SparkPeople at the beginning of this last week and I am really liking it so far. I have been meeting my goals and exercising more than usual. I like tracking this stuff, it not only shows me what I'm actually doing, but motivates me to do more. I can't wait to get my garden planted, I have a new garden so this is still a lot of fun. I know it gets old after a while. I have a lot of interests so I love posting to the message boards and joining teams. Thanks emoticon

my name is Carrie! I am a soon to be 38 year old wife and mom of four kids and four step kids, I have been on sparkpeople for a long time and haven't been consistent. my health is failing due to my weight and I need to get motivated. I currently weight 294 lbs and that is just way too much. I've been in and out of the hospital a few times this year due to my thyroid, weight, blood pressure and having a lymph node removed, I know all this is due to my poor eating and lack of exercise! Now is the time to get busy and look at living instead of existing. I am joining this challenge to help me to get used to doing daily fitness activities even if its only 10 minutes a day at the very least! Its time to get serious and stay focused.

If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. i'll always be with you "Winnie The Pooh"

Hi I'm Liz. I struggle with posting on any kind of social media, but have decided I need a change, so I am going to be interacting on sparkpeople. I have a six year old son. My biggest difficulty with being fit is physical limitations due to a debilitating disease. Movement is difficult and painful for me, but not moving and eating poorly are just making me worse. Now not only do I have the physical limitations, i have formed bad habits. Ultimately I want to find a fitness mentor to help keep me on track.

Hi I'm Rachel and I lean toward the "all or nothing" stream of exercise. A part of me knows that 10 minutes a day is probably better than an hour and a half once a week. Plus it would quell my "I don't have time" refrain.

Hi, my name is Shannon and I'm new to SP. I've been trying to lose weight and get in better shape since the start of the year on my own. This seems to be the right team for me, since I have been trying to get up early and work out before the kids are up and time for work/daycare, and some mornings, 10 minutes early is as early as I can force myself out of bed!

I used to exercise quite a bit. Husband became ill and I am happy to be his caregiver. Fortunately, he is getting better. I am getting back into exercise. I have a new mindset that 10 minutes at a time will help me get healthy again and lose the weight I gained.

Hi, my name is Grace. I've been with Spare People for little while, I believe since march 2014. I was not able to be very active until a couple of months ago. Since Jan. I have been more consistent and serious about getting healthy, fit and losing weight.

I have multiple heath and medical problems that had prohibited me from exercising and just being mobile. I was immobile for about 6-7 +. But now I am slowly gaining my strength and stamina back to be more mobile and active.

I joined this streak to see how well I'll do and so far it looks good.

I'm trying to get stronger and in shape for the Spring, Summer time so that I can be outside with my grandchildren. But the biggest reason is that I don't want to go without fight.

I plan on taking care of myself now that I'm back in the game of Life again. It was touch and go there for a little while, but I am back and I want to be strong than ever.

Hi, my name is Hannah. I'm 41 years young, and live in Portland, Oregon where it rains nearly all winter! emoticon It's usually overcast, that's why a lot of people here have Seasonal Affective Disorder. I haven't been diagnosed with this, but the rain definitely gets in the way of being outdoors sometimes. So I've just been working out inside and that's working for me! Good luck to everyone, you're in it to win it!!! emoticon emoticon
