Things I Learned in Boot Camp...
After a couple of weeks, I was actually waking up & looking forward to my workout.
I had always thought I would hate exercising with a ball. But, I purchased one in a color I love and began working out with Nicole. I found out that I LOVE working out with the ball. Who knew? Give new activities a try, even if you don't think you will like them. You may be surprised!
I have never kept track of the food I eat. I always thought it was too much trouble and not my style. Spark People makes it easy! I took time to enter my favorite foods, learned how to use the special time saving features like making food groups and copying meals from one day to another. Now I enter the foods I eat every day. It's easy!
I had to go out of town and didn't have access to a computer for 4 days. I wasn't able to keep up with Boot Camp, but I was able to walk 30 minutes a day and found that using the stairs 6-8 floors several times a day is great exercise!
Losing 3 lbs. can make your clothes fit better.
Lose 5 lbs. and you will feel better.
Lose 7 lbs. and some of your clothes may be looking too large! It doesn't take long. Just get started.
Working out just a little bit each day has made me stronger. I can feel muscles. I have better posture and am inspired to work out a little harder and walk/run a little faster. At first I wasn't losing weight, but I still felt stronger & my clothes were fitting better. It is surprising that just 30 minutes of walking and 10-15 minutes of working out with Nicole can make a difference!
There are so many wonderful people using Spark People to attain their goals. Find someone who inspires you.
