Okay, I'll try this again.
I've been having computer troubles and lost my blog yesterday.
I'm using DH's computer today . . . enough about that.
I've had a really good week Spark-wise. Highly motivated and am staying on plan with both fitness and nutrition.
I didn't feel well yesterday, emotionally. And that's rare for me. I had a really big emotional drain day on Wednesday and that might have been part of the problem.
Our neighborhood watch efforts have expanded and I've had to set boundaries on just how much I can do. The emotional drain for me was due to the coordinator of another group being at the meeting (this was a community training event) and he is known for running his own agenda, taking over the meeting and pushing his agenda on everyone else. So, when he tried to take control of the meeting, I made several attempts to deal with him gently, after all, this was in front of our whole neighborhood. But he would have none of it. He was determined, and stood up, began speaking and would not shut up or sit down.
Since it was my event, I had to handle the situation. I don't like doing that kind of stuff. I've had to do wear my big girl panties for too many years, and it's taken a toll on my health. I don't like it.
So, on to better things. Yesterday, I had my first full session with the acupuncturist,
not only for stress but for the aches and pains in my shoulder and hip (which has kept me from getting proper rest the past week).
I don't like needles, but it helped a lot and I got a good night's rest last night.
I'm on Day #5 of the 30 Days of Fit Food Challenge. Today's message was about being a fast eater:
"Are you a fast eater? You're not alone. It takes some focus, but it pays to slow down when you eat. Your brain needs at least 20 minutes to realize that you feel full. Give your brain a fighting chance with today's challenge: Spend at least 20 minutes eating one of your meals today, setting a timer if necessary. Savor your food and focus on the textures and flavors. You might be amazed at what a difference it makes in your satisfaction levels after eating--and you'll feel fuller even when eating less food!"
Today, I am making a point of slowing down and savoring my food.
And I have to say, it makes a difference.
So, what are you doing to better your program?
