Week 1 Recap

Friday, December 07, 2012

This has been a very good week for me. I have been tracking everything I eat and I've stayed within my calorie range and met my nutritional goals every day. EVEN TODAY, which is Friday! That doesn't happen often for me! Weekend has always, in some way, meant over-indulging in some of my favorite treats, but this time I enjoyed them in moderation only. And I feel so much better for it! I still got to have some chocolate but I didn't go over my calories.

This week, I...
...lost 4 pounds!
...tried a few healthy, new recipes such as chicken pita with low fat tzatziki and veggies, low-calorie version of the Count of Monte Cristo Sandwich, carrot slaw with apples and grapes, and Pesto Bella Burgers (most of the recipes were from the SparkPeople Cookbook).
...baked whole grain flaxseed rolls which were so good!
...burned 1800 calories.
...felt really happy, calm and in control.

All in all, it's been a great week. It's always easy in the beginning but this time I promise I won't start slacking even when (notice I said when, not "if"; we're human, we're not perfect) setbacks happen or when I'm feeling unmotivated. You just have to push through it and you'll eventually find a way to get your Spark back.

Have a great Friday everyone! :)
