Well I'm on to Week 2 of the Spark Solution lifestyle.
Week 1 reflection/successes:
1. I've lost a pound
2. I feel more focused
3. I'm not as fatigued
4. I haven't gotten take out or fast food once
5. I am incorporating more healthy foods every day.
I must say that some of those recipes make a lot of volume. So I have been eating the same thing for a little while. They're great tasting, so I don't mind. I didn't do exactly what Week 1 stipulated, as I did not want a $200 grocery bill. So I just chose some recipes and made those. Like I said I've been able to stretch them for lunch & dinner for a few days. Another thing is that I haven't had the chance to work in more exercise. But that is changing this upcoming week. Dog training is coming to an end tonight (our last appointment). So I get my Tuesday's back for jazzercise. I can't workout on Wednesday (excluding my 10 minute dog walk in the morning) because I don't get home until after 10pm due to my graduate class. With that being said, I do plan on starting my 1/2 marathon training again this Friday since the weather isn't as harshly hot. Hopefully, this cold I have right now will be well on its way over with.
One of the main messages Spark People emphasize is to concentrate on successes outside of the number on the scale. And, while I have that 1 lb lost as #1 on my list above, it isn't the most important success of Week 1. The most important is that I am healthier than I was the week before I got the book.
On to Week 2 I go!
