doing better today!

Friday, May 15, 2009

Well I have followed the spark diet to a 't' today - which is very good going for me!
I have also clocked up 50 minutes on the wii fit.
Glad it is the weekend - we were hoping to visit Bolsover castle but the weather forecast is not too good.
No tea or coffee either today and feeling ok!
Must keep up the good work!

    That is great that you have been following the diet. I have not gotten up the willpower for it yet. Keep it up and you will see the difference.

I have done very well today - so far! I have had a spark breakfast and lunch but am going out tonight to a friends house and everyone is taking something to put on the table - bit like a buffet so I will have to be careful!
No caffeine today - big headache since this afternoon - but it has been stressful at work. I was proud of myself as usually once the stress sets in I head for chocolate or biscuits and I didn't!
No extra exercise again today - I usually go swimming on a thursday - must get some in tomorrow!

the only trouble about work is...

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

Ok, I thought I was on track - did well with the spark diet yesterday. Today at work I ate a meal I would normally eat for tea and then when I got home realised I had not got the chicken out to do the spark meal - so instead of trying an alternative 'healthy meal' I did chicken pizza with chips! I am not going to be losing any pounds at this rate!
On the positive side I have not had any chocolate or caffeine so very pleased with that.
It is 8pm again and I have not done any 'proper' exercise other than running around at work getting jobs done and running up and downstairs a lot at home!
I am tired and feeling very full!
Thanks for the comments yesterday - it certainly helps to have support from 'virtual friends!'
Right I am going to see if I can have half an hour on the wii fit or maybe just go and read my book!

Weighty issues!

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

Well I thought I might try doing a blog to see if this will give me more motivation!
I have weighed in at work today and put on 0.4kg which is a bit disappointing as I was convinced that I had lost some. People have been asking me if I have lost weight - I have been doing more exercise and am more toned now.
I am beginning to do more of the 'spark diet' but find it difficult to do some of the planned meals when at work during lunch hour.
This evenings spark recipe was very tasty and my hubby had some also but he had chips instead of wild rice. He even did all the clearing up after the total mess I had left in the kitchen!
Haven't managed to do much exercise today!
Bye for now! emoticon

    You are doing so well. A certified sparker!!

Don't worry too much about the scales, its probably because you've toned up - muscle weighs more than fat!!

The scale will soon be your friend too.

Back to work syndrome - urgh!

Nursing, an admirable profession.

    Yay for blogging! I find it helps to "talk" about what's going on, and to get feedback when people are nice enough to post comments.

And a big YAY to your hubby cleaning up! Woo Hoo! emoticon
