Challenge #3

Thursday, January 21, 2010

This challenge went from Jan.15 - 21/10 and we had to team up with another member and coach them on something they wanted to monitor.

I teamed up with Maria (Thinktok) and I monitored my sodium and fibre and she monitored her calcium.

It really is an eye opener when you do keep a close watch on your daily intake.

Here is my week's notes I did on my sodium and fibre:

Finally being accountable !

Saturday, January 09, 2010

I hadn't had a chance to get my official weight after the holidays, yes I did go weigh in on my scale last Saturday and it showed me up 10 lbs since before Christmas, however I don't change my ticker until I went and officially weighed in with my weight consultant this morning.

I gained 6 lbs since I was there the Saturday before Christmas ( Dec. 19).

I have been back on track this week, so know that I have had a good week by what my scale said last Saturday and what her scale said this week. I do know that both scales are pretty well in sync too.

So it's downward from here on end. As I said I'm finally able to be accountable.

This is the quote that I posted on my status today and I will follow it:

"Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending." -Carl Bard

This is so simple and so true.

Changing bad habits for good ones

Friday, January 08, 2010

So the next challenge on our Spark Power Team is changing a bad habit into a good habit. I will be working on procrastination. I am a big procrastinator. So I made a list of all the things that I must do and then I'll blog after the weekend to see how many things got done.

1. Straighten up closets in bedrooms
2. Sort out papers and get them filed
3. Clean off both computer desks

Just these three items will keep me busy over the weekend, besides my usual round of housework and cooking.

Food tracking

Thursday, January 07, 2010

For my challenge with Spark Power we had to track our food for a few days on the nutrition tracker and make notes about what we saw.

I have trouble getting in my carbs, mostly due to my program I am following, doing a 3 week detox and that means only one serving starches daily, I have gone over my intake every day , but still not what Sparks tracker wants me to have.

I have been eating alot of raw veggies and fruits, so my fibre is good, my protein is good.

A bit low on my calcium even though I have yogurt every day.

But the one thing I still struggle with is my sodium, only because I have had some canned tuna and salmon this week.

It has been interesting looking at the breakdown of everything that I've been eating.

    I always find it fascinating to take a deeper look at what we eat and how it all breaks down. I really only concern myself with fats & sodium content when trying to stay within my calorie ranges. Maybe I should take a deeper look sometime. I know that I eat enough fruit and veggies but who knows how the rest pans out. I'd love to hear more about how you are detoxing. Take care of YOU my friend. You are WORTH IT. Love, Dawn
