Spark Solution

Sunday, May 12, 2013

I am starting the Spark Solution challenge tomorrow.

I celebrated my graduation a bit too much and I broke my calories in range streak. I have been out of range the past 4 days, although it could have been much worse.

Of course, I could have celebrated and stayed in range. It was a handy excuse. I have an in-law situation that is causing me a lot of stress and I reverted to my old ways of reacting to stress. This situation is not going to change any time soon so I need to develop some coping strategies. I am hoping the challenge will help with this.

I did make some progress - even though I knew I was over my limit I still tracked it. I am also making this public to make me accountable and rein in this slip before it is a landslide.

----------------------------
---------

Calories in range - 0 days
Strength at least 10 minutes - 59 days
Food tracked - 62 days
Cardio at least 10 minutes - 62 days

    I can relate to the in-laws situation. It's been a big part of my weight issues but I have learned to let it go and it feels good. You are going to do great! emoticon

    Awesome that you tracked though you were out of range! That's a real victory. Wishing you the best with the new challenge and the in-law situation. I've been practicing a LOT of coping strategies and stress reducers lately. They make a WORLD of difference. Seek the answers that are right for you and I am sure you will find lots of good alternatives. Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on! emoticon emoticon

    Being accountable to yourself is a great beginning. I understand stress that doesn't seem to go away, keep looking for some coping skill, let me know if you find anything. I am in the same boat, but as of yet have not succumb to eating.
    This is a new day and glad you are trying the Spark Solution, something just having a challenge to do helps us get back on true track.
    Hugs and smiles

    Debbie,
    You are amazing, I have a saying one step back- two steps forward (I know I learned it somewhere here on SparkPeople). Move forward my friend and don't look back.

    Congrats on your Granduation! I'm with Dawn, I would love to see the picture of your Graduation. You worked real hard for your degree and I loved hearing all your accomplishments when you posted about working towards your degree!

    Have started the Spark Solution too, emoticon
