I get what you're saying. I really wanted to get back on track by Sunday, but I've been sick lately. Honestly, I'm not up for food-prep and grocery shopping. However, I can certainly manage to pick up a Greek Yogurt and a banana- or even the ingredients to make a breakfast parfait. That won't require the trips to Costco, my local grocery store, and the Farmer's market.

I have frequently gone back to my Fast Break goals to get me re-grounded in why I started Sparking in the first place. Sometimes all I need to do is check of those 3 little boxes and I feel like I've made some healthy choices for the day. It motivates me to stick to my plan.
Slowly adding healthy habits over time has helped me me lose 60ish pounds. I did not jump in head first and change my entire lifestyle overnight.

Has what you've been doing been working well for you? (ie "jumping all-in")
If not, then don't be averse to trying something different.
idk. You could go ahead with Fast Break and use the week to plan your major grocery shopping etc. Just because you're doing Fast Break doesn't mean you "have" to limit yourself to just eating a healthy breakfast -- and then trash the rest of the day. Sometimes when I start over on something, it's helpful to me to at least review the stuff I think I know-- make sure I have that firm foundation, to build on.
I'm looking at getting back with Sparkpeople, but I'm not sure if I should give Fast Break a try. I almost feel like it's better for clueless people. I know exactly what I SHOULD be doing- especially after being off and on Spark over and over. Plus, it's hard not to go overboard and get into tracking and trying to stay within my ranges- even if my diet goal is just to eat a healthy breakfast.
So, what's your opinion? I really am considering giving Fast Break a shot, but I also feel like I should jump all-in. Granted, the idea of just focusing on eating a healthy breakfast is ideal. I could essentially go to the store tomorrow to buy some yogurt and start that in the morning. Starting an overall diet plan, however, will take more shopping and prep-work... so it's easier to put it off. So, I do see both ends of the spectrum.
I'm also a little worried about the transitional period from Phase 1 to Phase 2 of the Spark Diet.
