Day 6 (Friday)- I went home with my boyfriend and spent a lot of time sitting and talking with his family. At 11:30, I noticed that my steps for the day were pretty low (2,000) so I spent the next half hour walking in place and doing parts of those Walk off the Weight videos that I could remember. In a half hour I managed to get my steps up to 3,000! Still not a lot, but much better. I also did 10 squats, then went to sleep feeling very accomplished :)
Day 7 (Saturday)- While still with my boyfriend, I tried to make healthier decisions. When we went out to dinner I was craving baked spaghetti and garlic bread but I knew that all those carbs would leave me feeling hungry later. Instead I tried to create a varied plate with salmon, red beans, rice, and edamame. I ended up hating the rice and swapping it for french fries (he offered me some and they were so good!) and I still managed to stay under my calories for the day. I forgot to take 10 dedicated minutes to move my body, but we did a lot of walking around the mall and Walmart earlier.
Day 8 (Sunday)- Today I work 10am-5pm. I brought a lunch and healthy snacks so I won't be tempted to use the vending machine. I hope to update this later with what I did for my 10 minute #sparktheseason challenge.
