Visualization of weight lost

Monday, May 19, 2014

Today's SparkCoach challenge was to gather item(s) that when weighed add up to the amount of weight lost. In the video the coach said a gallon of water weighs about 8 pounds. I have lost about 2 gallon bottles of water.

Pre/post workout plan

Saturday, May 17, 2014

Today's challenge is to jot down my pre and post workout plan. My pre plan is the breakfast I ate. I will soon get off the couch and go to the gym. If pool is not crowded I will swim some laps. If it is crowded I will get on a cardio machine. After, I will consume the protein shake I will take with me.

Today's Challenge

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Today's Spark Coach community challenge is to blog about today's coaching session. The challenge is to reflect on measures of success other than the number on the scale. I injured the hamstring in my left leg rather severely nearly a month ago and have been focusing on healing that. During this process I lapsed on logging food and activity. However, I am acutely aware of the healing process occurring in my leg each day. I did lots of ice and rest at first. After a week or so I began going to the gym to get in the pool where I walked and did gentle stretches. That has evolved into a 30-40 minute routine that includes lots of stretches and yoga poses. I have also been getting on a stationary bike where I have worked up to riding 2 miles with no added tension. I am in awe of the body's ability to heal and the learning that is mine in this process. I have a new appreciation for my body and resolve to care for it more carefully and thoughtfully.
