Learning about myself .... here at Sparks!

Friday, May 06, 2011

Hi I've never blogged before. Im Erica and I have been with Sparks since Jan. I honestly haven't lost much weight, I just go up and down the same 5lbs. I have however started running again, and weight training. I feel better then I have in years, I have also lost 3" off my waist and 1.5" off my hips and 1"off my legs and arms! I find filling in my charts for nutrition and cardio has really helped keep me focused. I also have been learning alot about what I am eating and what i need to eat more of! Protein was low every day... every single day!! So I have added in a protein shake for my breakfast every day. Eating good foods isn't enough if your not getting all the nutrients your body needs. There is so much to learn here I love it! I hope all of you are doing well on your journey. And learning as much about yourself and the way your body works as I am... bye for now!

    Hey emoticon and congrats on finding spark and writing your first blog post. There sure is lots to learn here. The best way is to try to get as many sparkpoints as you can in a day: reading articles, writing blog, doing quizzes and playing trivia.

    Also emoticon on changing your body composition!!! Weight is very inaccurate on it's own (as you can see). Listen to your body. Feeling great is worth the effort!!!

    I also took a while before I started my blog and I think that has helped me, too. Other people's encouragement has really helped me.

    It sounds like you are doing the right things. I used to hate to track. Part of it was just writing it down, but I discovered that it really was meaningless before. I didn't know what it all meant. I love SparkPeople's tracker and evaluation at the end.

    I have also been struggling with the same 5-10 pounds, but with perseverance, I am almost there. I know you can do it, you are on the right track! emoticon
