We had a house full of family yesterday for grilling, sticking our feet in the kid's wading pool and visiting with lots of laughter. To add to that the Navey Blue Angels were flying above our house so it was a day of celebration. I knew going in to it that there would be food items I do not usually consume on a daily basis and I planned for it. I consumed about 150 calories over and way too much sodium and it showed on the scale this morning. I did not panic though because I knew alot of the gain is water...no big deal. A few days ago i would have freaked out but after my pity party the other day, so many fellow Sparkers slapped me with my own flipflops and brought me back to reality.
My plan is to push the water today to help in getting rid of the excess water. i will also really really watch the sodium intake today and simply go back to my healthy Spark eating. Since I know that my weight loss is an ongoing work in progress and my tracker shows almost no loss since Sparking I will persevere with my dreams.
My dream is to above all, form a healthy lifestyle with eating and adding fitness to every day life. I want to feel like a normal person and I want to really like myself and who I am. I will not let a number on the scale dictate how I feel. I took that one step back yesterday but will proceed in taking two steps ahead today. SparkPeople is teaching me how to accomplish that skill and it feels amazing.
eta...To me the feeling of exhilaration is when the Navy Blue Angels fly over your house banking to the point where you can see the pilots' helmets. Ya Baby!
