Yeah!!! I did it! This morning I wasn't sure how I would be able to do my cardio after doing my stretching video, fitness test and strength exercises. I was wiped out! But I tried to stay focused and stay on track with all my nutrition categories and water and even tried a new recipe and then this evening I did CARDIO! Not much, only 15 mins. same as yesterday, but since I don't have strength training tomorrow, maybe I can do a bootcamp video and a cardio. (Okay, that's the plan, we'll see if I'm this fired up tomorrow.) At least I think I should be able to sleep better tonight.

Well, it's day seven. I'm seeing some good points and feeling a little discouraged aboutothers. I got up today and did my devotional and stretching and fitness test all before eight. Then I did my workout exercises and boy, I'm beat! That was much harder than I thought. Still need to get in cardio for the day, but it will just have to be later. I've only manged to get in 15 mins. or cardio for the week and I'm trying to not beat myself up over it.
On the brighter side...I 've got all my starting figures, weight, measurements, and fitness done and for the first week I'm done 5 1/2 lbs. I know that the majority is water weight, but even taking that into consideration, there is still a significant loss. Praying that continues next week and that my motivatioin to keep at the exercise increases.

Day Six - and I FEEL GOOD!!! I stayed within all my nutrition guidelines yesterday. I stretched and I DID CARDIO!!! Okay, only 15 mins. of cadio, but that's 15 mins. more than I've been doing and today I'll do even more. I am getting older and will need a knee brace to do more walking...forget jogging at this point, but maybe with some strength training? I slept better than I have in weeks. Woke up with energy and I didn't hurt going down the stairs. I think this is going to be a very good day...even if it is snowing!

I'm a little dissapointed in myself. Yesterday was difficult, in more waays than one. I let someone else pull me off track. There were so many ways I could have avoided the temptation, but I chose not to. Hence my calroie and fat intake were high. Fat was VERY high and there was no way to redeem that....but at least during the enf of the day, I made wise choices to minimise the calorie overage without starving myself and came in line with carbs and protein. Next time, I know I will be more qassertive and only take a half portion and take half home or dask if a childs portion is available.
The question I have to ask myself is why? Was it worth it to avoid confrontation with someone who is already being disagreeable in my life? I have to answer no, but I will need to work on setting boundaries there since we both share this love affair with food and she is not exactly "on board" with the Spark program.
Today, thank God, is another day, and there is much that I can do TODAY to overcome the slips of the past. SO, ON TO IT.

Okay, three days down. It's a pain tracking all my food...but I know as well as anyone why it's necessary. I went from 171 down to 135 back in the early '90's - even lead a WW meeting for a while. That time the weight stayed off for a long while. I'm not sure, at this time,where I went off track - may figure it out later, but for now, I'm back on track. Bought a scale and learning to navigate this site. Yesterday I got my protein, carb and fat percents better in balance and my measurements recorded. I'm on my way.
