Hi Girlie 603 -

Thanks again for checking in and keeping me honest. I did have a small loss this week, and I felt like I had a much healthier week.

You’re right, though. I still didn’t check-in at Spark each day, and I missed logging my food a few days too. I don't think I did poorly on those days, I just didn't take the time to log my food as I’ve been working a lot of hours lately, and even had a long day of work on Saturday that tripped me up a bit. But I have been really trying to focus, and I’m feeling great about the direction I’m heading.

I will continue to
1) spin the Spark wheel daily,
2) log food every day, and
3) check-in with my Biggest Loser team!

Yes, I didn’t do those things every single day, but I did do some other things that deserve recognition. I made a fabulous healthy chili to take for lunches, and I had some healthier breakfasts (even though I did not enjoy them one bit . . . Greek Yogurt . . . blech!). I also signed on to lead a team for the Fall Biggest Loser Challenge.

Your two additional items are good ones for me. I will be sure to do a better job logging the water that I’m drinking. I’ve noticed that by the end of the day, I have no idea how much water I drank. So I will try to keep better track.

Now the stress issue is a tougher subject, but one I need to conquer. I guess you’ve noticed that the last couple of weeks I have worked some long hours and had a lot of deadlines. I really need to step back and do something for myself when things get rough at work. This week I had an opportunity to discuss some of my work issues with my boss, and I was a little upset with myself for not taking the opportunity. At that precise moment when the door was open for me to express my concern to her, I took the easy way out and brought up another subject. I’ve been stressed about it ever since, and I think I need to have a plan in place to have that discussion with her. I can’t “wimp out” and not address it. So over the next few days I will find some ways to relieve stress and also come up with a plan to have that hard discussion with her.

I’m looking forward to another week and will continue to challenge myself.

Signed, Girlie
