The Spark-Chapter 7: Week 2

Saturday, February 20, 2010

Today I took the healthy lifestyle pledge, am continuing to exercise daily and shoot for those 7 hrs. of nightly sleep. What is new though, I am not only tracking everything I eat and staying within my calorie range but I am now meeting the guidelines of the right amount of fat, carbs and protein. All the diets I have ever been on, I have not done this. Of course, this is a lifestyle change and not a diet. The scale didn't show me what I hoped it would this morning but I had two pairs of these jeans I have on in two different sizes and I have the smaller size on and this is only day 20!! So everyone, persevere!

Everyday is a holiday...

Friday, February 19, 2010

Today is the start of day #19 for me. I always joke when someone asks me how I am and say "Everyday is a holiday, every meal a banquet, every paycheck a treasure". I have dropped the "every meal a banquet" now. Good thing! Anyhow, every day is a treasure if we want to make it one. Have a wonderful Friday and weekend!

TMJ?

Monday, February 15, 2010

My jaw is starting to shift on me. It seems that anytime I start to loose a few pounds this happens. I hope it doesn't get out of control and I need to see a specialist again. Does anyone else have this problem?

  I certainly can't say for sure, but if it is giving you much pain, I would definitely consult a specialist.
Good Luck.

    I do and they told me I have TMJ. Its started to become constant but I can pretty much ignore the cracking now. It could be what is causing my headaches. I just don't want the surgery to get it fixed. I would say it is TMJ though. emoticon

Datona 500 Party today...

Sunday, February 14, 2010

Since I ate that unscheduled pc. of pizza last night, I am more likely to follow my plan today. We are going to a Daytona 500 Party and I just ate a nice salad so I can be in control when I get there. I hope they have fresh fruit and a vegetable tray to graze on. Everyone was kind and gave me no chocolates today. Hooray! Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Day 1 - Fast Track for 7 days

Saturday, February 13, 2010

This is the start of "Day 13" and I have lost 3 lbs. as of this morning. Today I also start "Day 1", Stage 1 Fast Break for 7 days from The Sparks 28-day breakthrough plan for losing weight. It will be the first time I have ever kept a personal daily journal. I will record how I am doing on my short term fast break goals, what specifically I eat and a bunch of other touchy/feely notations on how I'm doing and even why. I am really getting into this.
