I took a break from Spark to see how I could do on my own. Well, I have gained back a few pounds. I am now back up to 130. That's not too bad, actually, but I don't want to see a couple of pounds turn into 5, then turn into 10.
So here I am.
I am going to try monitoring my calories again for a little while to see if I can get back on track. I've slipped back into my former habit of oversized portions and too many treats. Hopefully this will allow me to make it through the holiday season without gaining weight.
Fortunately, I didn't lose my good workout habits during my time "off". I am running a 5-mile race on Thanksgiving, so I've been trying to get ready for that. My goal is to run the whole thing without stopping (no matter how slow I have to go.)
I am a little disappointed that I wasn't quite ready to do this on my own, but at least I didn't gain back all of the weight I lost!
