Back to basics....Baby steps and incremental goals and rewards. Plan my meals and don't skip exercise more than two days in a row.

When I follow this pattern, I meet my fitness goals
- I will leave work at a decent hour (by 5:30 at least 2 days/week)
- I will go straight upstairs and put on my workout clothes as soon as I get home from work.
- I will not sit at my laptop (SPARKPEOPLE) for hours if I haven't done my daily exercise
- I will not skip a workout more than 2 days in a row
- I will grocery shop on the weekends to be prepared for the week
- I will track my food/exercise daily
- I will prepare my lunch the night before or take the 15 min in the am to make it (incl am coffee)

    Hey! I am back! ( I hope?) I totally abandoned fitness for the fall (yup, school did it), but I am feeling at least a little more settled and school isn't too bad. Plus, the school just opened a new rec center with climbing wall. A free place to work out and climb should help a little.

    Walking around the neighborhood sounds like the perfect way to get active over the winter - you don't have to motivate to go anywhere else, still get to be outside, etc. Way to make it work!

    Good job getting back on the spark. I think a summer hiatus from the internet is, in general, a good thing.
    I also took a long hiatus. It's definitely been a few months. Eek!
    I just moved to a different city and started grad school, so life is a little crazy... Back in Eugene I knew where to find the bark running trails that wouldn't hurt my knees and had my free-if-I-knew-the-person-working-the-desk membership to the rock gym... here I don't know where to run and climbing is expensive.
    I really just need to suck it up and go to the student rec center, dungeony as it may be. Ah well.

    Guitar and 5k??? Those are two awesome things!! How has the new guitar been going? How has your fall been?

    Cheers, and thanks for saying hi. (Remembering that I got an email notification about your comment helped me remember to come back!)

    Heyy...Thanks for the message :) It's so hard for me to get motivated lately...so I'm hoping that coming on sparkpeople each day and chatting with others going through the same thing will help! Good luck :)
