Sparkpeople is a good place to find motivation and inspiration....... all the tools are here if you just reach out for them.

Little by little I am finding parts and pieces of my motivation........and right now Sparkpeople is my inspiration.

It's been a month and I am still where I was then.............
I read something which made sense to me........
If you keep doing the same thing over and over................you will get the same results.
What I'm doing is not working for me...................so I have to figure out how to accomplish my goals with a different plan.
I need a kick in the ****.

I am at a loss.

Weekend Challenges

Sunday, August 15, 2010

This weekend...........well for that matter every weekend in August is an extra special challenge for me in regard to my food plan.
I have one grandaughter each weekend come for a visit and we go shopping and find some fun adventure to go on. This is great and fun!
The challenge is that we are gone for the most part all day and we are eating out. It is making the wise choices at the restaurant that present the biggest challenge.
I am always happy when I make it through those days choosing foods that won't set me back.
Today I enjoyed the article about consistency and how 2 steps forward and 1 step back are built into the idea of consistency...................This relieves a little pressure and encourages me.


Helpful Hints

Saturday, August 14, 2010

I am so enjoying the articles and helpful hints as well as the useful tools that are provided by SparksPeople.
Todays I read an article about complex carbohydrates. I keep trying to not include them in my food plan, but now I know that I can if I keep them in the guidelines that are healthy.
