This is the last week of the 5% challenge. Man, is it ever a good one! The mini-challenges each week have really caused me to grow in my spiritual journey!!! I have actually gone down almost 3 pounds this time-more than any other challenge. I am so thankful!!!! I know the leaders have really worked hard to give us challenges that don't just bend us, they actually stretch us!! I thank them all for their hard work. Another thing that may contribute to my downward bend in the scale is something I never expected. About halfway through the challenge my doctor informed me my sodium was too low, and her recommendation was that I drink no more than 6 glasses of water/day and check back. When I did my sodium was up, but I am still drinking 48 ozs. for the next couple of weeks. I couldn't figure out what the correlation was, but she explained it has something to do with my level of electrolytes. Evidently a person can drink too much water!!! I plan to take part in the next challenge coming up next weekend, but I can't guarantee I will get my 8 in when I should. Nevertheless, fellow sparkers, the journey continues. May yours be a positive one!!!
