SparkPeople here we come!
Okay, I have to admit that I'm aiming a little high here but a girl can try right?
April 1st is a couple of days away and I am ready to start my new healthy life style. If you want to join in visit SparkPeople.com and register, it's totally free and has helped me in the past lose weight and manage what I eat. I am a firm believer that you can eat what you want in moderation and SparkPeople helps me keep track of what I'm consuming.
They provide a nutrition tracker, fitness tracker, water consumption tracker, weigh ins, track of your fitness minutes, appointment scheduler, as well as a journal entry area, featured recipes (with nutritional info provided), message boards and more. There's a whole community of people there wanting to get healthy and stay that way. So come on and join me what better way to start off April 1st? No, this is not an April Fools joke, let's do this and get ready for those cute spring and summer clothes!
To keep you motivated find a picture of an outfit you would like to treat yourself to when you reach a certain goal, or better yet a picture of that new bathing suit you want to fit into before summer (see above).
Also, working out with friends is always a fun way to get in some exercise. Mix up your exercise routine so that you don't get board. I love to workout outdoors more so than inside. I would rather walk 5 miles with my girlfriends than do 5 miles inside a gym. That's just me but find out what works for you and stick with it. I had my bike tuned up before winter last year and that will be one of my new workout routines. I am looking forward to riding since it's something I have not done in a long time.
You can check in here or keep us updated on your blog of your progress or even your struggles.
Hey, Hawaii bound girls here's a shot out to all of you....LET'S GET READY FOR MAUI!!!!!
