Another day of packing food. I got rushed and had to just throw some things in, but I think I ended up with 1569, 19 cal over, but much better than if I hadn't planned at all.
:-) Lots of seated work today, so I stretched my shoulders and back often. Again at lunchtime, I walked the halls for more fitness minutes.
Long but good day--but not as long as expected, so I will be better rested to get up and go to choir early tomorrow morning.
What am I going to do to celebrate my upcoming one year Sparkversary?

I had to pack all my food today exccept breakfast. I was working at the county election office. Fortunately there were no sweets or treats except the sugar-free vanilla pudding and Dove chocolate I brought myself.
1311 total! Woohoo!
I even got in an extra 30 fitness minutes by walking briskly in the halls at lunchtime. It was much to hot to go out.
If I did it today, I can do it again tomorrow!

Day 8 - I lost yesterday due to computer troubles. I was able to track part of the day--good--but got frustrated later and ended nibbling in the evening. A couple of full scans later, the acute problems seem to have gone away, but computer is still a bit sluggish.
On the plus side,
Did a great cardio workout
Finished a book
Tracked what I could and did well for most of the day
Day 7 - Today I woke up feeling totally unmovitated. I told myself, "Come on, you can do it," and did my usual 5 min wakeup stretches. I checked the computer, logged on to SP, posted my status, and within seconds found featured board post, "Not Feeling It? Do It Anyway!" Just what I needed. After that, I visited SUPERACHIEVER's blog that sent me to some hilarious cat videos on YouTube. To get in my upbeat song for the day, I went to the piano, which is how I often do it, and found a very funny song in a Quaker hymnal that starts, "What do you do with a new Attender" to the tune of "What Shall We Do With a Drunken Sailor". "Read him a bit from Advices and Queries", "Make him sit for an hour in silence", and "Appoint him on to the Peace Committee" gave me another good laugh.
Then I tracked my breakfast and was very surprised that what I thought was a good breakfast came in 102 cal over what was recommmended. That was with sugar-free jam, light English muffin, Can't Believe It's Not Butter Light, and 30 cal Silk almond milk, banana/pb/cocoa smoothie. Arghh. Should have stuck to half a muffin. Should have looked at my tracker first, not after, or tracked as I went. Oh well. Not fatal; I can recover from that mistake and still be in range today.
Off to play with my SP DVD! I was so excited to actually have won something!
THANK YOU dear Sparkfriends. Doing it alone is not only a lot harder, it usually doesn't stick.
Later: I've got about 200 cal left for evening snack. In spite of overdoing breakfast, I'm going ot make it!

This has been a great day! I exercised, ate light yesterday and today, planning ahead to indulge at a chocolate and wine tasting tonight with friends at Schakolad. Talk about awesome! I counted 941 cal excluding the evening out. My wine probably totaled less than one glass, but I didn't even try to tally the chocolates.
What fun! We dipped pretzels, strawberries, and marshmallows in a chocolate fountain, sampled four fine wines and who knows how many chocolates, and got to decorate a flat bar to take home. I had about 600 cal to spare, but I'm sure it was more than that. However, we had a wonderful night out, no regrets, and I'll be back on track tomorrow.

:-) I joined the new SparkCoach team and will give it a 2 wk trial to see how I do with it. It was fun coming up with over 650 points today!
For exercise, I put together a collection of short stretching videos while giving some sore muscles a break. Some of them don't seem to have a way to add them to favorites.
Good meals today with 1386 total.
