I feel like this whole Spark thing has just given me a wake up smack in the forehead! I can't believe how much it makes me WANT to track what I'm eating, doing....I spent what must have been two hours at the grocery store yesterday just reading labels! I'm finding it very hard to balance my foods though, like yesterday I made my fat intake goal, but was way below on my calories and carbs and protein. I really don't worry about the water part since that and coffee is all I normally drink. Of course, uh..well, when you have company and start playing silly board games, one alcoholic drink turns into many and..well, lets just say I'll have to keep a better eye on that, not that the drinking happens often lol. Even intoxicated I got on line to look up the nutritional (funny how even alcohol has nutritional values) and reluctantly added it to my days numbers. I don't think people really realize how many empty calories are in alcohol until they have reason to look. lol.
As far as the goals I set yesterday, I managed to smoke four less than I did the day before..the heavy duty cleaning in the kitchen didn't quite happen (too much time at the grocery store and not enough time in my day). Since it wasnt too hot, me and the dogs spent an extra half hour outside chasing balls and frisbees (which, in turn, meant I spent more time chasing the dogs to get the balls and frisbees back cause they like to play "keep away from the human" games when they get tired of fetching lol).
Anyway, today I'm feeling very hopeful about the Spark, nothing else has ever really made me sit up and pay attention before!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!
