I feel like my weight loss is not going as I'd hoped with steady losing. I know I have not been perfect in my eating, water, tracking, or fitness, so I don't look to some other cause for this really slow progress or no progress or whatever you want to call it. Last night I went back to The Spark book and read a few pages. I have it on my phone. If you don't own this book, but you do have a smart phone or Kindle or some similar reading device, you might consider getting this book electronically. Then it's always convenient to read, and I didn't pay much to get it either (free, maybe?).
ANYWAY, going back to the book, I was reading about what to do for success. Two things I need to do: eat breakfast and eat 5+ servings of fruits/vegetables. I HAVE quite a few veggies and fruits around the house. I try to eat only one fruit as I think of them as sugary and carby. I need to make myself prepare and eat all those veggies though because soon I'll be throwing a lot of them away.
As for breakfast, the book says that the breakfast of choice for successful losers is oatmeal. I like oatmeal! I am going to make some today and load it up with some fruit.
Today my Spark Start page had an article about burning more calories during your workout. I am going to try some of the suggestions like wall squats with weights. My knees bother me when I do squats so that's one reason I don't do them. But I will try to do 12 of them and see.
My scale today reported I was back down to my lowpoint. I am glad and I'll celebrate by drinking a lot of water, doing more than usual Leslie Sansone, and eating oatmeal and veggies! Happy sparking, y'all!
