Not happy with Spark Coach today ~

Friday, December 14, 2012

Text 2 days in a row? I did not think I signed up for that. If they don't start putting up videos instead of text, I won't be rejoining when my subscription is up. AND I really want to do SC. emoticon

    I haven't tried it, but have been wondering about it. Hope it goes back to the videos you are looking for.

    I don't care for the text either. Since I've been doing the Plateau busters part of it, I think there's only been text one day--of course, I've only been on it a week. But, I totally agree with you!

No, I didn't think I would look good bald ~

~ but I did something REALLY dumb. emoticon
I was clipping the bottom of my hair, which is only a half an inch long, and took the clip off to clean it out ~ BUT forgot to put it back on. Sooooo, I have a track from my ear to my forehead with NO hair. I am SO smart, it baffles the brain. emoticon emoticon emoticon Good news is that half an inch doesn't take long to grow ~ bad news is that it will grow in brown, and I bleach my hair blonde.

This, of course, has kept me from going swimming all week. emoticon emoticon Which, of course, has made me feel very guilty. emoticon I am going to go tomorrow, however, because my son told me that when my hair is wet it shouldn't show plus I'm going to wear a hair band. Duh?

Today, however, I am going to do some dancing emoticon emoticon to try to get back with the program and make myself feel better. I "know" there are things that I could be doing but just don't "feel" like doing. And it's my feelings that got me into this bloated, over-weight mess. So, I have to do what is necessary, regardless of how I feel. I, am embarrassed to say that I, also, have a treadmill that just sits there ~ that I swore I would use when I bought it. emoticon

Thankfully, this has not stopped my weight-loss. I have lost 10 lbs emoticon and am very happy about that. Definite incentive to go further.

I, also, FINALLY, found some SP recipes that I will make. emoticon I have a VERY difficult time finding things to make that appeal to me and are low-cal ~ especially for dinner. Last night, I didn't really have dinner, I just kinda grazed, which didn't make me very happy. I have to try a lot harder to find things that I can make.

Any ideas for dinners, would be greatly appreciated. emoticon Btw, is in America in general, or just SP, that has this on-going love affair with sausage? emoticon (No, I don't like sausage.)

    Oh gosh, NO, sausage is not a good thing to eat. I love it, but I only eat it maybe 2 times a year now. Nitrates are very very naughty.

My favorites for dinner are: stir fry chicken with lots of veggies - make it in a pan that you don't have to use much oil, but use some canola oil -

I love to make burritos using lots of fresh veggies, a little bit of chicken or beef, and the whole wheat tortilla

Another favorite is whole wheat pita, lots of fresh veggie Israeli salad, some small chunks of chicken stir fried in onions and mid eastern spices, with hummus in the pita.

So do you see the pattern here? I do a lot of fresh veggies, small amount of protein, and always whole grain carb.

Oh and another thing I make a lot is fresh soup, with lots of veggies - low in calories and helps to fill you up. Nice and warm for winter.

Now I am not quite able to picture how one gives themself a buzz slice, but it could be a new fashion trend, no?

People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas. ~Author Unknown

    This gave me a chuckle - it's so true! You could go CRAZY this time of year and still not do the damage we're doing with our "normal" eating habits. Thanks for the reminder that the small steps I'm taking every day are the ones that count!

I really do. emoticon I am so thankful to Spark Guy and all the people who contribute to making SP work. emoticon It is very important to have a place that understands and helps with my weight loss ~ and I've made some incredible friends. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Yep. I agree, too. I doubt if I would have made it to my goal without SP. My plateaus were brutal, and my Sparkfriends kept me going. Glad you're enjoying it, and getting the support you need, too.

    I agree with you totally. If it wasn't for Spark People and I seriously think I would have never gotten myself healthy or in shape. The people I have met are wonderful and full of wisdom and encouragement.
