Day Two of Spark Streak! 97 Days until Summer!

Friday, March 15, 2013

Results of yesterday's trifecta of tracking, water and fitness:

So, Streaking for Two Days!

I woke up this morning light and energized again. Ready to tackle the day. It is my middle daughter's 15th birthday. But a school day also, so there is work to do before we celebrate.

I woke up hungry, which I like. A glass of water and a cup of coffee quelled that for now. Too early to eat breakfast. I get up at 5am and am not done getting everyone off to school until around 7:30am. I usually eat breakfast then.

STARSUB99 commented on my blog yesterday: "'s time to stop pretending to lose weight and time to just do it..."

I really did laugh out loud. Awesome observation. Could not have said it better myself.

The thing is, I can't guarantee that this streak will result in a weight loss!! And really, it is not the point (although as a disclaimer, I feel that I need to mention to the Universe that I would really, truly NOT object to this HERCULEAN effort on my part resulting in dramatic and permanent weight loss!!!) The point is to create better habits. And as I have reiterated before, if I am doing what I need to do in terms of eating, drinking and fitness, my weight is none of my business.

I think I'm going to make a t-shirt with that on it.

As ANDOVER said: "This isn't a race that we'll win or lose. This is life to live as well as we choose."

I need a t-shirt with that on it too.

OK, so the effort is really NOT so herculean. 1400-1700 calories is really pretty generous in anyone's book. Drinking water and herbal tea 24/7 gives me something else to do between meals and snacks. I have realized that I really do love challenging myself with intense physical exercise. But I need to be sure to make it a priority otherwise it is easy for me to let that slide.

Welcome to Day 3 and 97 Days left until Summer!!

Love that! I will defiantly be writing that in my journal tonight! You have a great mindset about your weight-loss, it's very inspiring emoticon

Happy Birthday to your daughter! emoticon I hope she has a wonderful birthday.

    emoticon Sparkling Streaker!

If you go into the t-shirt business, let me know. I'll be placing orders for both of those you mentioned in this blog.

I've read that it takes 21 days to instill a new habit. You couldn't prove that by me, but your Days Until Summer Streak (aka DUSS as opposed to my irreverent suggestion of it's alter ego FUSS- Fat Until Summer Sadly) provides almost 5X that amount of days! The odds are in favor of instilling some healthy new habits.

Spark on! Streak on! emoticon

    Your blogs have really got me thinking. I struggled with my weight through my mid to late 40s. Now that I'm in my 50s, things are falling into place. Maybe something I've learned can be useful to you. I really need to give this some thought. I feel a blog coming....

    Sounds like you are doing beautifully. And it's great that you can put weight to the side. I am very impressed by that! You are right, what you are doing is much more important and your weight is none of your business!

    So Michelle...

Given the theory that the subconscious mind doesn't understand "not", so intents must be stated in the positive, take another look at what you just wrote....

Not that you didn't write this with your conscious mind. But still....
