My spark is so big, something's gonna burn!!

Tuesday, April 03, 2012

I don't know what has gotten into me but I like it! It's been 2 days (yeah, I know, pretty lame, huh?) of pure unadulterated perfection. I'm a happy girl. My diet has been dead on. I've added a lot of whole grains, fruits & veggies, controlled portions, drank water & followed my exercise plan. Reading what other people (successful weight loss bloggers & athletic friends) eat & consider "normal" meals has helped open my eyes to the importance of proper fuel for the body. I feel energetic & motivated.

Changes I've made - stopped drinking coffee, added quinoa & lentils and healthy granola bars, and actually eating the fresh fruit I buy instead of waiting till it rots to throw it away. I'm doing Zumba 3 days a week & kinda/sorta strength 2 times a week. I hurt my shoulder so this morning I did abs & thighs. I gotta take it easy on the shoulder for a week. :-(

I've even had enough wiggle room on the nutrition tracker to have a portion controlled bowl of ice cream with chocolate syrup & maraschino cherries. MmmMMmm!!

I can't believe shorts, tank tops & swim suit weather is creeping up on us. I wanna be ready!

    That is fantastic!! The title made me smile and I'm so happy for you and what u have been doing! I saw a breakfasts recipe, like oatmeal, that uses quinoa...I got some but haven't tried it yet, maybe tomorrow for a fresh start. I've kinda been neglecting spark but so glad to come back and see my friends on a good path. Hope ur shoulder gets better soon! And I can't believe how close it is to shorts and skirts weather! We will be looking fabulous!!!
