I have allot bags of stuff I carry around for work. To get into my office it's about a block up an incline (1 way; not both emoticon ). I estimate the wt to be between 20-30 lbs most of the time. Can't wait to get to my destination each day so I can shed the extra wt. Hmmmmm?

Go to bed at 11:30 am up at 5:30 am. Limited resolve to stick to my health plan.

A quick Spark Check in without reading or writing a blog=a quick Spark Plan Forget
I need to post some Health Plan Reminders/Inspirations around the house, work & car ASAP!

Buy Healthy Groceries that are picture perfect = consume healthy groceries.

Veggies washed & cut= veggies eaten.

Plan Menu & prep before work= healthy dinner.

Drive through a drive through=an addict without willpower. (Despite best intentions.)

Work out clothes laying out & ready=Work out probability 0f being completed 75 %.

10 minutes of exercise=75% chance of 30 minutes or more.

Wake up Smiling with a positive attitude= Smile all day.

TV on decreased umpf! Radio on energy up.

Write in Gratitude journal=feel grateful.

Drink pop diet or regular=I'm still thirsty & feel sluggish.

Eat fast food = cravings for more fast food.

Eat veggies & clean wholesome foods =ultimate satiation, clear skin, better sleep & energy.

These were thoughts from this week that I kept track of. My biggest stumbling block is my current heavy workload. It will get better eventually but not quite yet. Despite my current workload I need to find a bit more resolve & take care of me. Old habits are hard to change. I have changed many but there is obviously more to do. It's all clicking together better & better all the time. Basically it all comes down to making the right choice several times a day. My body deserves the best choice. For the most part healthy eating is very similar in $ price ounce for ounce to unhealthy eating. Unless of course you let the fruits & veggies rot. Packaged processed foods last a long time; unfortunately persons consuming them often do not. Truly, it doesn't take much for fruit, veggies, & other wholesome unprocessed foods to fill me up. I can eat tons of cookies, chips, etc & still be hungry. Despite it being a really tough time to overhaul my health I have great confidence that I will do this.

My biggest keys to success is Eat to Live principles by Dr. Joel Furhman.
Regular Exercise.
Spark, esp. some loyal accountability friends.

    So you get some strength exercise just by hauling your bag to work! That is a plus. You have a long list, checking off progress in one is good!
