What can I improve on?

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

I have been consistent all week in logging my foods but gave up on the Spark Menu Plan as most of the foods I didn't have in the house or didn't like. I have been logging in what I eat and have been within my calorie range, but have noticed a shortage of protein, calcium and other nutrients as I'm not getting the veggies and fruit requirements. The exercise routine needs to be improved also. Today was a gym day...didn't make it as I let another appointment take over the scheduled gym time. Know what I need to do...just need to act on it!

    Take it one day at a time. I have to keep telling myself that. I do best when I track my food and exercise. I usually have to substitute foods on the menu plan. Good luck. emoticon

    Here is one of my mottoes that I use everyday...maybe it will help you too!!!

Believe in what you are trying to achieve. Keep your thoughts positive even when faced with challenges.

There is only one person who can make you do anything, and that person is yourself.

Accepting that failure is a normal part of the path to achievement will help you understand that setbacks, obstacles, and roadblocks are also a part of the condition necessary to appreciate success when you have attained it.

    It helps so much to see things written out and logged...and I always check the far I am ALWAYS low on fat (not good for me then I start really craving things) but I am GRADUALLY working up to it...only 4 grams low now. You are doing emoticon

    We all have times that we miss exercise. It's good that you noticed what nutrients you are missing so you know what foods to add to your meals or snacks.
You will succeed!!

    Way to go on being consistent on logging your foods. That alone is a big enough task!

    I also make my own plan, (lots of things on Spark we don't get in the UK) It took time to search things and enter into my favourites and I also made groupings for meals we eat a few times a month, lots easier when that is done. Takes time to start it though.
I worked hard to adjust all that I needed,but you will get there emoticon
