Well it's been an interesting first week being active on Spark. I would love to say I ate perfectly but I definitely indulged here and there. I am also made myself completely sick one day by taking my vitamins with half a grapefruit first thing in the morning which resulted in about a 75 calorie day.
Overall though I'm finding that I have a pretty good handle on portion sizes and the calories contained in my food choices and am never surprised at my end calories for the day. I've given up sodas again which is a huge battle for me and as I get more clearance to resume normal activity post spinal surgery I am taking advantage of being more active.
We added a new member to our family yesterday, a mostly white boxer. who resembles Petey from Our Gang. She is named Petunia and seems to be getting along very well with her 9 mos. old sister from a previous litter, a flashy brindle by the name of Lucy. I'm looking forward to lots of walks (runs when they're older) and swims in the river with these girls!
I am playing a pretty big gig this week and logged a lot of practice time over the weekend along with celebrating the cd release of a good friend of mine. I also have orientation for my return to college. It's going to be a busy week but thanks to my newfound spark I feel confident I can tackle the challenges of chaos.
All things considered I am easing into this program but with great enthusiasm. I would like to gleefully report that I am down 6.2 lbs since I blogged last week!!!!
Thank you for all your support and kindness. I am loving the community here.
