“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

We are big meat eaters especially the beef. Tonight we ate fish instead.

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

"Be not afraid of going slow; be afraid if standing still" (Chinese Proverb)

With God all things are possible.

If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.

Happy Thursday to you!

Do you find that you have the following symptoms at times: tiredness, lethargy, looking pale, feeling faint and breathless? If so, your body might be running low on iron.

Your CHALLENGE FOR TODAY is to get in your iron (see your Spark nutrition table for your personal needs). Many of us take a multi-vitamin for vitamins/minerals that we might not be getting through food. That is great, but for iron you can also try:

* Roast beef and other red meat (beef, lamb, pork, offal) are rich in iron that is easy for the body to absorb. The darker the meat, the more iron it contains
* Chicken contains some iron – choose leg meat rather than breast meat if you want to get more iron
* Baked beans
* Boiled eggs
* Canned sardines or other oily fish and mussels
* Breakfast cereals with added vitamins and minerals
* Green leafy vegetables, such as watercress, kale, spring greens and broccoli
* Dried fruit such as raisins, figs, apricots and prunes
* Wholemeal bread
* Lentils, beans and peas
* Nuts such as peanuts, cashew nuts, almonds and brazils
* Seeds such as sesame and sunflower

Here are a couple of iron tips for you:

* Avoid drinking tea or coffee at mealtimes or for half an hour afterwards. This is because these might reduce the amount of iron we absorb from food.

* Eating fresh fruit or salad vegetables (including tomatoes) or drinking fruit juice (all of which contain vitamin C) with meals might help the body absorb the iron in food.

Have a FANTASTIC Thursday!
