I have made the decision to do The Spark Solution for 2 weeks, seven days because of the rut I was in; going up and down on the scale and boredom with my same old same old. (Not the fault of anyone but my own) My mind and body needed a change. I desperately needed a new plan and new motivation to work the plan.
What have I seen or felt in the first week?
I have not noticed a day of being famished or surprisingly no craving.
I have lost weight, 2#. More than that I have enjoyed my interesting food.
What do I like the most about the program?
I think the preparation and planning ahead is the foundation of this program.
What do I like least about the program?
There were so many new recipes and be honest it required time and effort, which is not bad if there was a backup plan. At times I was stressed. For instance after shopping Sunday I had a minor accident involving me and another person after grocery shopping. I had a good amount of leftovers because I am a single person so that worked for me.
What was my favorite meal from this week?
Panko-Breaded Fish with Tomato Salad, steamed zucchini, couscous, Kiwi, with tartar sauce was my favorite meal. Each meal in the book is so well balanced. Having ice cream for a choice was wonderful, done with a meal that balanced it out. Balance so important!
Which Insider Tip motivated me the most this week?
Slow and Steady Works
"I told myself that I would change two habits every week; not as a diet, but as permanent lifestyle changes so that they weren't temporary. I compounded the effect by continuing to add two new healthy habits every week." - Solomon, 139 pounds lost
What is my goal for next week?
My goal for next week is to write a food Menu and an Exercise Menu. Also allowing for that busy day that just happens.
Mind the little things: walking briskly while shopping, parking far from the store, walk to mail a letter, plan exercise with my grand children where we walk, get away from the computer.
I hope you give this a try. The recipes, tips and are really worth doing.
Oh, and I forgot Lucky Seven is seven days.
