TGIF I managed to get in 30000 steps on Wednesday & 25000 steps yesterday even though I have only 2000 steps when I get home from work. So, I know I'm getting stronger. I'm seeing the toning in my arms & legs. I can keep up with the grandchildren which was a goal of mine.

My eating has improved. I think there is always room for improvement but it's much better and I have more energy then I've had in years.

I need to improve my sleep & how I handle a difficult person at work.

One day at a time. I'm enjoying the journey. Life seems to always have a lesson to be learned.

PS I got in 25500 steps which included 13 flights of stairs & 11 miles. My pants are loose. It's time to go shopping. I ran out of smaller clothes!

    What great news! It is even better to see the improvements on your body than to see a weight loss. Keep it up! You are definitely a role model.

I've been training for an upcoming 5k. Today was cardio so we did interval training at the track & 10 flights of stairs.

I ate within my nutritional ranges. Slowly but surely I'll get there!

I'm going to go to bed early. Hopefully I can get in 7 hours of sleep before the alarm goes off!

Spark Solution Review Week 1

Sunday, May 19, 2013

I chose Spark Solution to break through my plateau & lose my last five pounds.

Week one is completed and I have managed to lose 1.5-2 pounds depending on the day. I have more energy and love adding the new herbs to my meals instead of salt.

My favorite so far is the snack of natural peanut butter and celery. The pork tenderloin is great also. My kids were over for dinner & my picky husband liked it! Progress!

The best insider tip for me was "It really does add up" All the little things I am doing such as taking the stairs, parking further out, and walking to the store instead of driving add up!

My goal for next week is to keep this lifestyle going! www.sparkpeople.com/sparksolution

    Congratulations!!! Plateaus are the worst- especially when you know you are trying your hardest to follow your plan. This is awesome news. I may have to invest in the book.

Keep it up!

Yesterday I got in 28000 steps & 11 flights of stairs on my FitBit & got in Spark Solution 45 minute video that came with my book. I also ate within my limits even though I was tempted at work!

Today I plan on walk/jog at the track after work to prepare for the upcoming 5k.

We can do this!

PS I got in 11 miles, 25200 steps, 11 flights of stairs, & ate within my nutritional ranges.

Yesterday I stayed within my nutritional ranges, strength trained & got in 26000 steps.

Today I plan on training for a 5k at the track after work & eating within my ranges.

PS I'm down 1 lb! Today I got in 27477 steps, did 10 flights of stairs, & ate within my nutritional range. I'm going to bed early.

One more thing. My husband brought home my favorite cookies and I chose not to eat them!
