Back to track fitness!

Monday, October 11, 2010

I've decided to come back to SparkPeople to use the fitness tracker again. I took a break from my old routine when I hurt my back at work. I've been going to the chiropractor and am starting to feel quite a bit better again. I know that tracking what I'm doing and getting into a new routine will help me to start working out regularly again. So, I've decided to take it slow at first and see how my body feels for the first week. I'll probably up my cardio minutes soon, but I don't want to overdo it right away.

I haven't gained any weight back, in fact I'm staying right around the 128-130 mark. But I know that if I don't get back into a regular routine I probably will start gaining weight back. I've already noticed my energy level dropping since I've had to take a break. I am ready to get a new routine in order!

I hope everyone is doing well and working towards their goals! Remember, stay positive!

    Hi Amber!!
    I think you know yourself best and using the programs here for your maintenance and fitness program sure seems easy and a way to stick with what is familiar and works. It is so exciting to have you around us to keep me motivated and heading in the right direction.
    I hope that your back is doing okay--I am beyond what a chiro and even a neurosurgeon can do with my back. If you need any info and support with your back, I belong to the best Spark Group ever--OA of the Lower Back. You can find out a ton of information and ideas. I'll send you an invite, but I sure understand it if you aren't needing to take on a new team as well, so don't feel obligated to join.
    It's great to hear from you and to know that you are sticking with your goal weight. Take care of yourself and that back!!
    Gentle hugs,
