Closing out the first week back on SparkPeople; I weighed in this morning and discovered that I am exactly where I was on 9/1 when I went to the doctor. I'm not bummed, since it technically hasn't been a full week since my last weigh in, but I went ahead and did it anyway. My actual weekly weigh in is Monday mornings.
I decided, since I haven't been able to get out and play tennis and the
treadmill didn't seem fun, that I would look at some spark videos
instead. I found three that use the resistance band and are considered
low impact and good for beginner level. So I did all of those, plus 5
minutes of stretching for flexibility.
I ended up with 38 minutes on my fitness tracker. It didn't feel like 38
minutes. The first videos were only 5 and 8 minutes long. The third one
was closer to 20, but worked upper, core, and lower body.
I wish SP had some kind of favorites system so I could save videos on a
list somewhere. I used my browser's book marking feature in stead,
however which will work just as well.
It has been educational coming back. The site has had many improvements
since I was here last, and I'm feeling a level of commitment I haven't
felt before, between what I'm doing on my own and what I can supplement
from the site.
In other news, I got my first of two projects done for the September Stashbuster Challenge finished.
I have some yarn left over from it, so in order to be really correct I
will need to find some small thing to do with the left over yarn.
Shouldn't be too hard though.
I'm planning to start my second project either tonight or tomorrow depending on how I feel.
Overall I feel really good about what I've done this week. I even picked
up some more Greek yogurt to put into my morning shakes. From the
produce section I got some apples called Ginger Gold and something
called Cotton Candy Grapes. So without even really trying or thinking
about it, I'm trying more new things.
