I'm Starting The Spark Solution
Saturday, June 01, 2013
Well, I tried around May 15th to start the 14-day program outlined in the book, but our refrigerator went kaput so I sorta lost my motivation (and then struggled with planning my meals in general for the next few weeks). Now, however, I'm back on track... Laying out June goals, workouts, meals, etc.
Today was a good day, and because I had a plan I didn't feel hungry or snacky all day. I'm hoping the structured plan will help keep me focused.
One of my biggest hurdles is still work lunches on MWF when I often let my 'friends' make the choice for lunch and don't stick to my plan. I'm going to work extra diligently on that this month. I had started taking lunch before the whole fridge debacle, so I hope to get back into that. Already from today I think one modification I may make is to have lunch for dinner and vice versa. I usually have my big meal earlier in the day since I get home from work late and go to bed early so that will likely make my days go better... Small evening meal = much better sleep for me.
Finally, my BIGGEST struggle I have yet to conquer is getting 7-8 hours of sleep at night. My alarm goes off at 3:30 am so that means getting in bed by 8:30 pm at the latest which is so hard with the time change. I'm going to work on it this month!
Hope everyone is moving forward with their goals! Thanks for letting me ramble about mine.
Happy June, Sparkers!
