8 am. I woke up at 6 am and now I am still at the computer. Mostly fiddling with Spark.com!!! Sort of like the father who builds a play house for his son, spending all this time doing this instead of actually being with his son. In truth, more interested in carpentry than his children. So, am I more interested in playing with my computer, taking quizzes about exercise, instead of getting out there and exercising?
Have to get out and walk 3 miles. (my new plan) Will report back later.
Report: Walked four miles. Easy to do because of beautiful weather and beautiful view of ocean all along the way. Big reward when got to the ocean, the surf, the old Chinese guys fishing, the young surfer dudes out with their boards, older women like me, walking.
Now lets see me walking when it is dreary.

Duh, it is like all of a sudden I can't figure out why I am sleeping in so late, and why it is dark when I do? How did that all happen so fast?
I simply cannot go out walking in the dark!!! So, now I have to re-calibrate, re-adjust, re-plan my exercise "program", such as it is. In truth I love exercise, but somehow it always gets squeezed out of my day. When I do my walks, I feel great. I even feel great after working with the exercise ball. (but not as great!! ha ha)

I was out yesterday with a good friend; she is basically someone who does not eat. She can go all day, us visiting stores and museums, and never need to eat. So, I feel awful having to tell her I need to stop and get lunch. (she doesn't like to spend money either) Usually we split a sandwich at her suggestion even though I am dying to have a whole one. Yesterday I bought a loaf of bread and cheese, and the tiny amount she ate made me feel like a pig. She was telling me that she just totally forgets to eat. She is tiny, and she has lots of energy, she does all this heavy duty gardening, refinishes furniture, makes little animals out of felt. All of us are just so different.

I made bad food choices yesterday, ones that ended up giving me a stomach ache!!! I did not even record them in my food tracker. Well, today is a new day. It is a sorry Sunday, but let's make it a successful Sunday instead. Go, Carol!!!

I gave up doing Spark yesterday, well, sometimes we do need a break. I am tired of not losing any weight and of not meeting my goals day after day. The reality is, though, that even if I do not lose weight, I am definitely eating better by doing Spark. I know why I am not losing, because of being meticulous about the food journal. I eat between 2000 and 2400 calories every day. That it.
So, my mind is in two parts-- should I give up on Spark? Well, I love the trivia and the quizzes, and today I found out that the blood pressure lowering benefits of exercise can be observed within hours of starting a workout program. (I got that question wrong, i thought it would be 3 months) So, just because of this one trivia question, i feel motivated to do my walk today (which I have not done all week)
So, no, I am not giving up on Spark.
