…at SparkPeople.com, that is. I was on there back in 2008 and really lost the weight and got healthy and in shape…then, as I’ve done too many times to count, I let it slide and fell right back into my old unhealthy habits (yes, this is most definitely one of the things I’m going to have to figure out).

I don’t have the time to spend a lot of time on there every day, but I can make the time to check in, log my food and exercise, do a little reading, take part in some challenges, look at some recipes, and so on…So I’ve begun to re-establish my Spark habit and I’m seeing a change in how I’m thinking about how I’ve been living my life. I’m still not feeling well enough to eat all that much (mostly just a few bland things) and definitely not feeling well enough to exercise, altho I suppose I could do some stretching…hmm…I’m going to do that, at least that would be a start and something I can do right now. Wow, who knew that you could come up with some great ideas in the middle of writing a post for a blog???

I’m really starting to feel some excitement about this…looking forward to exercising…keep remembering how great I felt when I was walking long distances and running.  And I keep thinking about the healthy foods I can pack for my lunch for work…you know, whenever I’m finally able to make it back to work…I’ve seen some great ideas about putting your salad in canning jars for the whole week….supposedly it’ll keep it fresh all week.  That’s one thing I’m definitely going to try…I’ll do a post on it in the future.

So…while I’m still kind of sitting on the sidelines…I’m excited to be getting back in the game…and I haven’t felt that way in a long time.

  1. Yea for you! I saw those jars of salad somewhere. It said something about vacuum-packing or something, to get the air out. Wasn’t sure how that was done.

    • The pin I saw mentioned that but she said she didn’t have a vacuum sealer and just filled them to the top and put the lids on and that it kept it fresh for a week…so we’ll see…you know, if I ever go back to work…
