I am dealing with an emotion called anger!!! I have been faithfully blogging and keeping track of nutrition (I did up my calories to 1200 - 1550 due to more excercise). I have excercised pretty faithfully. I have drank water. I have been getting my sleep. So, why am I on a gaining streak? A streak that I do not particularly want. Starting Jan28 right through Feb 18 I have gained .4, .8, .4, .6 (add that up and it is 2# 2 oz) So, all I can figure out is that I need to re-evaluate what I am doing.
One thing I will do right now is name a few positives:
~ believe in myself and my desire to be healthy & fit.
~ eat things that are healthy.
~ am blogging and have stuck to my challenge to do so for 28 days.
~ meet with a group of like minded people for encouragement and weigh in once a week...at which I commited to lose .5 a week.
~ do not have an unhealthy relationship with my scale. (weighing daily nor two to three times a day).
So, as for yesterday. I was at 1356 calories..Eight water...walking 40 minutes for a 30 minute mile, 20 min for a 21 minute mile, 10 min on the rider for a total of 70 minutes. I have been reading The Bible & The Spark.
I think I will go back to my former calorie range of 1000 - 1399.
Excercise 5 days a week.
Drink 8 - 10 glasses water daily.
Bed by midnight.
Measure everything I eat.
Changing it up a bit for the next two weeks.
I ATE FISH TWO TIMES TODAY!!! SO, NOT A BAD DAY!!! WITH THE EXCEPTION OF MY WEIGH IN.....IT WAS UPSETTING!!
"I AM MAD!!! But, I will get glad.."
Thanks for listening to me...on my blog and for commenting.

"The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds." 2 Corinthians 10:4 (NIV)
One dimension that I would like to add to THE SPARK (not to take away from it but to add). That dimension would be the great power we can have in Christ...for the pulling down of strongholds.
That is what happens when I am trying to reach my goals in small baby steps and there is a holiday, birthday, celebration of a baby, wedding, retirement, new job, you name it and the party includes first and foremost rich foods, pizza, candy, cakes & ice cream, drinks of all sorts....and in order to get through these times I need the power of the most high.
My Monday was going along just fine: breakfast , lunch , dinner , waters , declutter !!! Now I was feeling SOoooooo tired, it was late and still I hadn't excercised....I was dreading it.....I could feel the tiredness just getting to me and thought about LS and guess who won out. Not my goal....a stronghold. No it was the tiredness and my pillow that won.
It is time for me to go to the Divine Power Jesus. So, I confess that I missed my opportunity to keep my commitment to the goal I chose for myself. Maybe tomorrow with His power I can recoupe and readjust my plan....goals after all are a snapshot of what we 'hope' to have as a standard.
Tomorrow will be a new day!!!
Tomorrow, a time to be positive and not let it rain on my parade.
