The Spark Nutrition tracker is telling me I eat way too much salt, even when the calories are in check.
I was relying too heavily on Zero Calorie Walden Farm dressings, and I figured that was where the sodium spike came from, but today I totally cut that out. I steer clear of processed foods, so I'm not sure where I'm over doing it with salt.
I wish nutrition tracker would tell me more than my sodium is too high, I wish it could point out which foods are the culprits!
And advice would be very much appreciated.

"You've got to do your own growing, no matter how tall your grandfather was."
Turning to Irish sayings today for a little fun motivation.

Well, well well. I had a wonderful Spark streak last week. But the the fourth of July hit. Lost a bit of control on two of the last three days.
Okay so a little back tracking, and now all that hard work has been a bit undone, and I slowed my progress. Okay!
What I used to do was PANIC. And use this as an excuse to beat myself up, and sabatouge myself. I used it as an excuse to binge on the worst foods imaginable. Then I'd beat myself up, feel terrible, oh and here we go again. Try and pull yourself out of that whirlpool! But you know? What I used to do has really gotten old and tired!
I'm human, I splurged at bit, and today I am back at Sparking. And the best news, there is not a holiday in the way this time, for a long time, to tempt me off my Spark.
Thank you all, too.
I read the inspirational posts you sent to my page, and they are a wonderful lauching pad. So I think, instead of panicking, I will take your words seriously and keep this Spark streak going for as long as possible.
Look out, I'm aiming to break records, as well as old, tired habits.

Starting today, I am going to watch those calories and really get them back in line!
I have led a dangerous trend the last three days and gone over my calorie limit, at first just so slightly, then on Friday just a little bit more, then yesterday I was over by 200 calories!
I also have a question for you expert Sparkettes and Sparkers: Do you find better loss with a very low calorie intake? Or, are you losing more with an over 1,200 calorie in take but much more hard excercise?
I am very, very bad these few days because all I did was walk a bit, but know I really need to step it up and break a sweat. Don't want to, but know it is essential. So, that's the plan! Today, tomorrow, onward.

Read Julia's featured blog about starting over. It is so inspiring, and so nice to see how she and all the spark people responding to her featured blog travel this same start and fail, start and fail, start again with determination road to perfecting oneself.
What Julia wrote so eloquently was just what I, and I see that many others were thinking, but afraid to post .... again. Reassuring to know we sure are not alone in starting over (and over).
Maybe, we need failure first to really win in the end. Maybe, we need failure first so we can better appreciate the win, our success in the end.
Sure is motivating!
