Serene Sunday sentences...
Sunday, May 16, 2010
I do a lot of surfing through other Sparker blogs and there is some real writing talent out there! Humour.. inspirational..moving...I enjoy them all..I have also learned I am NOT one of those talented writers, but I do believe that writing thoughts down is an integral step in this whole journey..So, to anyone that might read this one..hope you don't start yawning...
Its' been a "quiet" spell in my Spark journey this week, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
I have been able to incorporate some form of activity daily, whether it was tackling Week6 of C25K, using the bike trainer, or hitting the bike trail outside..So that's good. Selecting foods, making meals ( and lunches in advance) and tracking daily has also become part of my routine, so while I still struggle to meet min. calorie intake, I am not hungry, don't have any cravings..( well, okay maybe just a few for crunchy, salty followed by creamy brown sweet..) but nothing that has been all consuming..
Maybe all this means I am finally adopting a healthier lifestyle? I am no longer physically or mentally fighting the battles of " come on I GOTTA exercise" or " how soon can I eat again?" It's become " which exercise do I want to do today and whats the best time" and " better eat something now or I wont have the energy to do my workout"
I know I will still have days where I will struggle..The summer is coming..Beach time ..which ALWAYS means drinks and continual snacks.. but I am cautiously optimistic that I have knowledge and tools ingrained into me, that will guide me through this phase as well. Thanks SparkPeople and thanks to the wonderful Spark community , who have shared so many ideas, and provided so much support..I truly believe I can do this!
