I've been putting off writing a blog because I'm not completely sure what one is. I understand it's like a journal--so here goes. I've been with sparkpeople for 2 weeks. I have been faithfully recording meals and exercise and have stayed pretty close to my goals so I feel good. I lost 4 pounds the first week and 2 pounds the 2nd. I had been working at a different site the last 2 weeks and had no trouble sticking to my goals. I even walked at lunch even though the weather was very hot. However, now I am back at my regular worksite and the temptations there are much harder to resist. First and foremost, there is food everywhere. We get free lunches and there are usually different lunches in different areas of the building. Oh... the choices! I have been known to graze my way through 3 lunches in one day. It is also harder to walk, because I get requests to do things for various people throughout the lunch hour while I'm at my usual post. I will say that today (my first day back at my regular site) I only picked up a green salad at lunch to add to my soup and fruit that I brought and I did walk 25 minutes. I just left my desk. I hope I can keep this up.
