Spark Solution Challenge #2
Sunday, June 30, 2013
Here we are on day 7 already, the last day of the first week. It is indeed my rest day from exercises. This challenge has been so good! If you haven't tried it you must get the book and get started!
I try to use condiments with the least calories if any. I love Mrs. Dash Marianades, Mustard, garlic, fresh spices, Splenda, light dressings, etc.
Any time that I see sugar as an ingredient, I try to use either Splenda, or Brown Sugar with Splenda. If it calls for honey, I use artificial honey whenever possible. There are many, many things that I like to change out, more than I can come up with right now.
Today instead of exercising, I have spent more time looking over my SP Cookbook, Spark People book and the Spark Solution program itself again. I want to be in the right frame of mind to start week two so that I can stay on program.
I am feeling terrific. I have much more energy that I have had in a long time! There have been no cravings. I even survived our church picnic yesterday, which was my biggest challenge, without going off program even once! I did this by taking my own meal from our menu with me. By the time that I ate all of it, I didn't want anything else.
Yes, I am moving more and I am enjoying my exercises. Oh, there are still some things that I cannot do due to my weight, but I know that I will be able to do them after I have lost a few pounds.
I have done my shopping for this week and I am ready to begin! My daughter and husband are coming in from TX (they are moving to Savannah, GA Wed. night. We will be eating at Cracker Barrel and I already know what I will be eating that night. The next morning they want to eat at Hardees so they can get on the road and I have already planned what I will take with me for my breakfast so that I can stay on program then as well.
My goal this week is to stay on program 100%, drink my 10 Cups of water, and to lose another 2 lbs.
