My calves are crying out...."SHELLY! WHAT THE HECK DID YOU DO TO ME YESTERDAY?" Hopefully they will feel better tomorrow. Much Ibuprofen today.
I did the exercises in the Spark Solution today. On behalf of my latent laziness, the one gripe about this deal is that no one set the challenge up so that people who are doing it have access to the recipes on the Sparkpeople database. Have to enter everything each time...and the recipes all have lots of ingredients. On a similar note, finding descriptions that match the exercises in the book is a time consuming challenge. I'm not sure if I'm going to be as motivated later on to do all of this entering. At least for now, I am.
My biggest desire is to develop consistency. I have a habit of doing well with logging my food and keeping up on my exercise for a week or so, I see some success, and instead of that motivating me to plow forward, I use it as an excuse to take a breather. While I'm breathing, I'm inhaling too much indulgence and not breathing hard enough from exercise!
I'm determined to fix this, now that I've realized it's a huge issue for me.
