Well, I lost 2 lbs. How? by eating whatever really appealed to me!!! Because I was sick with a bad virus, I could not eat very much. So, it is all about portion control. ha ha
If I craved a brownie, I ate a brownie. (but only one) If I craved whole milk, I drank whole milk (but it ran out and I could not get more) If I was bored and made chocolate chip cookies, I made them (but eating the dough did not have the appeal it usually does, and I was too tired to cook the entire batch, so froze the dough)
Also, I had no alcohol, did not eat out, did not exercise, have just been home all week. Yet I lost 2 lbs.
Also I was alone all week. No one wanted to catch what I got. When you eat with other people, you always eat more!!!
This is not the best way to lose weight. Now, the trick will be to keep it off when I go back to my regular lifestyle.

Where did the week go? I see I blogged on Monday, and now it is Friday already. I got a really bad virus, and I am just eating comfort foods, sort of like snacking all day long. Today I am going to do Spark once more.
I have this sinus pain and feel overwhelmingly tired, not even well enough to go to the mailbox!!
I know the source of this. I overdid things on Sunday. I got totally over-tired. Those viruses are all around us, and if we pace ourselves, we are less likely to get them. But my resistance was down and it got me.
Lesson Learned: stop when you know you have had enough. Applies to eating as well as activities.

Another Monday morning; another new start. I love starting over!!!
Wore the wrong shoes yesterday for a shopping trip, and now not sure if I will be able to go for my walk. I feel wiped out and it is only 6:30 am. Slept all night, though.
Feel like I have got a good breakfast habit nailed down. (except for today, just ate a brownie) One habit at a time!!! That could be a mantra. We are changing habits here.
I still cannot seem to go under eating 2000 to 2200 calories a day. At least I am recording all my foods. According to the nutrition tracker many days I am "under" for things like protein, fiber, vitamin C, D, B12. I should review my trackers one of these days.

Just figured out how to do the spark exercise tracker. Very excited to learn something new. I put my laptop in the living room where I have room, and I watched the exercise video and then did two exercises. Not much, but a start with a new routine.
Still not sure how to add my own ball exercises that I really like.

I did a great walk yesterday, inspired by Spark's little map. It was so much fun to trace my route. I still do not exactly understand how to use the fitness tracker. I need some hints. For example, I wanted to put some exercise ball workouts in it, and I searched yesterday and found several, but now today they have disappeared. Well, it took my a very long time to learn the nutrition tracker, all the ins and outs of it. So, this is probably the same. The "help" button does not help that much.
Also, I put down 10,000 steps as a goal, but when I try to enter this number as having been done, an error message comes up. I can enter 9000. Must be in the program.
