Re-establishing motivation

Friday, May 17, 2013

After a very long "wintery" early Spring, lawncare and gardening season finally arriving. I expected to be a little lighter by this point, but got kind of bogged down and discouraged as winter lingered on, ate my way through it. Yesterday I ordered the Spark Solution, and so far am liking what I'm reading. It's not so much that it is "new news" but it is a reminder of the fact that success is possible by building on small, healthy changes, and I like the 2-week menu program. Much of it is compatible with what I eat everyday, but I have let uncontrolled portions and evening snacking sabatoge my efforts. I do have to continue to learn patience with myself, always want too much to happen too soon. Lots to work on.

    Yes, I started the Spark Solution, modifying it for what I buy but going back to tracking my food in their daily calorie range (1450-1550) and I've lost about a pound and a half and their first week is not up yet.

You are ahead of me in the gardening though; I have yet to clean up my vegetable bed and go out and buy my plants and get them in; it has been such unusual weather!

    We all know everything we need to know to accomplish our weight goals but we still need to hear it over and over. No shame in that!
