Day 7/ Week 1

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

WOW!!! This week has fllloooown by! I'm excited to say that I have dropped about 4lbs since last week. Stepping on that scale this morning was nerve-racking but I did it and I am happy with what I saw! I am trying to keep in mind that I may not see such high numbers every week and that is okay. I just have to keep doing what I am doing and I will be fine.

I already feel so much more energetic! Its amazing! I used to get headaches a lot but now they are few and far between. I contribute that to the increased water consumption. Before I MAYBE had 1 glass of water a day, somedays I had none. I was downing atleast two cokes a day and the occasional juice here and there, that was about it. Now I am drinking atleast 5 glasses of just water a day and I have limited myself to one soda a day if any. I think my body was begging for water.

Eating healthy isn't bad at all. I felt bad for a millisecond today when I had a small piece of chocolate broken off a chocolate bunny someone had brought into work. then I though, NO! I am not gonna down myself for an inch sized piece of chocolate! I will take that as my week one reward :oP

I have made it almost half way through the Spark book and love the inspiration and motivation it gives me. I can't wait to pick it back up tonight.

I have worked out every single day (except for Sat and Sun and I did housework and shopped those days so I consider that a workout) even though it has been hard to get motivated somehow. I am a TV fanatic, last night I had a difficult time getting motivated because I had sooo many shows I wanted to watch (Biggest Loser, American Idol and my DVR'd Dancing With the Stars). So, I made myself a promise, I could watch these shows IF I worked out during the commercials. And I did just that! I got my workout in and I was able to enjoy my shows. It felt great.

I look forward to continuing this next week and so on. This has been great so far and i can hope it will only get better.

I am looking for Spark Friends to motivate and gain motivation from, so add me if you need a friend!!
