Okay, I received another Sparkmail from another team member that really irritated me today. I'm really trying to keep my cool about these crazy messages I have been receiving lately. First message was about my running group. Now, this one is about how I chose to motivate people. I don't get it. But the one thing I have to keep in mind is the fact that I cannot nor will not please everyone. I just had to vent for a little bit because I do not want the reactions of others deter me from keeping my eyes on the prize as well as keep me from doing me!
Also, I do feel that I will be done with doing anymore challenges on Spark People after this challenge that will end in December. I will be removing myself from certain Spark Teams as well as removing individuals from being Spark friends. I chose to continue to surround myself with positive people along with active teams. So, some hard decisions will be made about Sparkpeople. Again, forgive me for venting!
Now, about my Clean Eating Challenge. It is really hard to eat clean while traveling. I had another job interview today near the Chicago area. So, yesterday and today were not good days for me. However, I will get back on track tomorrow. During my weigh-in this past Saturday, I gained a pound, but I lost 0.7% body fat. My new goal is to continue to maintain my goal weight of 135 pounds (133-137 pounds) along with reducing my body fat. I know the clean eating will continue to help me with this as well as strength training. I'm really pressing in with my eating habits as well as with my workouts.
Additionally, I will be starting my Half Marathon training tomorrow with a 3-mile easy run along with strength training.
