I'm a few days late on my updates, and haven't been on Spark for a couple of days (broke my streak). I've been babysitting my 6 year-old nephew and 3 year-old niece and nephew ths weekend. They are soooo busy. I got a cardio workout running after them and and a strength workout wrestling with them. Also got to see my 9-month-old great nephew - so cute. Spending time with my kids is always so theraputic. Puts everything back into perspective.
So I had a good week - shocking 2 pound loss. 16 pounds down with Spark for a total of 18.5 pounds total. Amazing. Last week I expressed my fear. This week I still have some fear but know that this change is for the long haul. I just feel different, even when I don't have a good day (s). I'm not mindlessly eating even with work stress. I consciously go off course, but am trying not to beat myself up about it.
I'm even keeping a good attitude about not being able to run. (every time I do my hip bursitis flairs up - bah stupid bursitis). I am walking stronger and longer than ever before, and enjoying my aerobic workouts. I'm just thankful that I can workout at all - for over 5 years I could barely walk.
Need to really work on meeting my strength training goals again this week. For some reason I just haven't gotten into it - but know that I need to in order to increase my metabolism even more. I also need to work on eating at least one fruit a day - fell off that wagon (unless wine is a fruit since it's made from grapes?!)
Hope all you sparkers are doing what makes you healthy and happy! Have a good week!
