I rejoined SparkCoach last month, hoping to help me to get through this plateau that I've been on. I've reached the plateau after gaining nearly 10 pounds since last fall. It's been very frustrating but I've gotten to the point that I know I'm not going to do it "the same old way" and I need to stir things up a bit.
Last week I decided to take it one step further and moved on to the SparkCoach Plateau Busting Program.
Did you even know there was such a program? I sure didn't!!!!
Since I was really busy over the weekend I've only gotten to day 3 of the new program. I'm re-learning (or should I say re-focusing) on a lot of the basics that I learned way back when.
Today, as part of the community portion of the program I took a portion distortion quiz and we are to post the results in our blog. I scored 16/16 in the quiz, saying that I know "the rules" and try to follow said rules. Sometimes it's easier said than done, too, especially when ordering food at a restaurant and trying to figure out exactly how many servings they are giving you in an order.
My hubby gets tired of seeing my food scale out on the counter but if I don't have to tools readily available it's too easy to ignore. Now, I'll get out all the OTHER tools of the trade and be sure that I'm really measuring what's going in.
