I'm doing a lot of learning and discovering as I begin this process of taking care of myself. I was working under really high stress levels for such a very long time, that I think I've forgotten how to really relax and just *not* be stressed.
Tomorrow I'm restarting my Spark Solution, as I derailed for a couple days. I'll feel better just starting fresh rather than trying to pick up somewhere in the middle. It doesn't really matter, it's all healthy and it's all taking care of me.
Fitbit is helping me a lot. I'm tracking all my movement and weighing in daily to watch my progress. I think that really helps me keep on top of myself a bit.
Another big helper is blogging, so I'm going to be more vigilant about that. I need to be able to check in with myself and make sure I'm happy with my actions.
Keep on Sparkin'!!

I'm going to be honest. Yesterday started out great, and then went downhill by evening. I ate well all day- staying in my calorie range and focusing on good, healthy foods. I even got out on two walks for my cardio. I had planned to do some zumba, but I guess I'm saving that for tomorrow's cardio.
By evening I had gotten a really bad headache. I don't know if it is allergies (I'm already taking Claritin) or if I'm just sick. I have been traveling a lot the last few weeks and have been exposed to a wide variety of people, so illness isn't out of the question. I didn't sleep much at all last night and I'm still in a lot of pain this morning. I took Excedrin, which took the edge off. Oh, well, I'll just take it easy today and hope I get back asap.
Tomorrow I walk at my graduation ceremony. It's funny, I'm not really feeling anything one way or the other about it. I'm glad to have finished, but I think it hasn't really sunk in yet that I'm DONE. No more crazy undergrad courses. I'm officially a grad student now.
Ok, my goals:
lose 5% of my body weight (0%/5% complete)
blog daily (2/14 complete)
follow spark solution fitness plan
feel comfortable in size 12
walk 10,000 steps per day (1/14 complete)
