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

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.

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.

~A man who wants something will find a way; a man who doesn't will find an excuse.~ - Stephen Dolley Jr.
I posted this quote on my Spark Page today and got thinking about what it is saying.
Speaking with a Spark Pal last night we discussed a mutual Spark Pal who had done so well reaching her goal and the one thing that we both agreed on was the steady weight loss, the never giving up or giving in on her healthy journey.
Ironically I read her Blog today (Kitt52) and she said ~~I guess the feeling for food will never go away so I need to deal with it... ~~
So back to this quote ~A man who wants something will find a way; a man who doesn't will find an excuse.~
How many excuses do we make to justify why we eat unhealthy, why we can't workout, why we don't drink our water, why we put everyone else in top priority, why we let an upset in our day throw us off our program?????
It's time to look at those who are successful in their weight loss journey at what they did. Yes they worked darn hard for where they are, but they kept their eye on their goal, they persevered, they stopped making the excuses.
it's time for me to stop making the excuses, how about you?
