I'm getting to grips with The Spark Solution and finding it easy and DELICIOUS now. Don't know why I got myself into such a tizzy the first few days. Probably I was trying too hard to be perfect (a life-long trait of mine) and so if I couldn't follow the recipe exactly or do the exercise exactly, I was getting really stressed. Now I'm much more relaxed and learning to shape the program while still remaining true to it. In practical terms, that means veggieburgers instead of hamburgers, smoked salmon or veggie bacon instead of pork bacon, making my OWN salsa, peanut butter, pancake mix etc. Easy-peasy. (And just in the nick of time, I finally have a cleaner again who can help with the piles of dishes I create in the kitchen.)
Know what? I LIKE this! I'm feeling creative and in control. And the effect is snow-balling. I've just about dealt with the laundry that inevitably happens after a holiday and have started to tackle the cupboards/closets. Having my house beautiful and organised gives me great pleasure.
This is my trial run for The Spark Solution Challenge that kicks off on in 2 days time. I am really looking forward to it.
