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
Water at least 10 glasses - 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

    You can do this and I have no doubt you will! It's just a blip in the radar in the grand scheme of things!
Hugs,

    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
Deb

    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

    That's like facing the mirror! Good job. Never challenge worse my friend, just move forward with your head held high and you'll be fine. Congratulations again on your graduation. I am so very proud of you. You should have posted your picture in your blog for all the world to see! I love you! emoticon
