So it's been a year with Spark. I've lost another 20 pounds but most importantly I've learned a lot about nutrition and fitness and have gotten into some healthy habits. Although I'm still tracking fitness and nutrition, I find that I've got a better handle on portion sizes and portion control. I've taken the step to using free weights and have tried out a few things, like fitness classes and rock climbing, that I wouldn't have dreamed of a year ago.
I've done yoga for a while and don't normally feel sore the next day, but this week and last week was pretty challenging. Sensei wanted to see my brown belt katas today - there are a few moves that made my already sore muscles say "uncle"! But at least the second hour was sparring - lots of fun as usual.
Yesterday I was at an all-day union meeting. We meet at a hotel that serves very yummy but not necessarily healthy food. Long story short, I had 2 of everything.
But since I've been there before, at least I mitigated the damage by having only fruit for breakfast, and after I got home I was still stuffed so I had no more food that day. But still... it's so easy to fall back into bad habits.
Today is a new day and new choices to be made - and they WILL be good ones!
