I will be finishing the Spring into Shape Bootcamp tomorrow. I can't say I followed the challenge to the letter .. but I will have done every video for a total of 4 times each. I don't think I will be entering another exercise challenge for a while! I can't say I've made any great changes over the past month. The videos are still SO hard .. this last week I was supposed to do some of them more than once, but I am so exhausted and shaking after one time, I just couldn't repeat them. Not sure I can get the challenge trophy .. :-/ I'm just happy I didn't give up - I did the best I could, and am excited to be DONE WITH IT!!
Today was day one of the Spark Solution challenge. I am SO FREAKING HUNGRY. I thought I would answer the Daily Reflection questions in my blog because I don't want to write in my beautiful new book! Silly, I know. :)
"I made healthy food choices based on the Spark Swaps meal plan."
Definitely! I followed the plan to the letter, except for 1 or 2 very tiny tweaks because of what was available in our fridge. I was over their calorie count for the day, but by less than 100. 1545 for the day, and that's pretty darn good in my book.
"I was physically active, following the Fitness That Fits workouts."
Absolutely! I got a 27min speed-walk in this morning, plus 2 bootcamp videos, and another walk in the afternoon. Plus regular activity of chasing Maxwell, doing housework, etc.
"I felt motivated to stick with the Spark Solution program."
NOT AT ALL. I am having a really hard time already, because I am sooooo hungry. I feel like I could eat a horse. And we just had dinner! I haven't felt full or even satisfied after any of the meals or snacks today. I stuck with it, but I'm really hoping tomorrow will feel easier.
"I am ready to take on tomorrow and all that it has in store for me."
So-So. I have looked over the meals and am preparing myself for another hard day. I really want to stick this out .. but I'm not gonna lie. I am not sure I'm gonna make it two whole weeks. Thankfully my husband is on board and we are at LEAST committed to the full first week -- because of the cost of the groceries we bought!! :-P
So, we'll see. That's all for now!
