Strict Sparking....

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Since the fall, after a heart procedure and some traveling and family visits during the holidays, I have had a hard time Sparking with consistency. My new goal is to Spark for a few weeks with strict calorie counting and strict fitness routines of visiting the fitness center at least three times per week, plus my at home daily fitness routine of 10 minutes of cardio work out. I hope this gets me back into my Spark routine, as I have added a couple of unwanted pounds that seem to go and come. I can't seem to get back where I was early last fall. I will do this! emoticon

Wishing you all Spark success too!

    Check with your cardiologists about the meds you are taking. Following stent placement about 9 months ago mine added a beta blocker along with a blood thing and I've gained 10 lbs since then despite strict adherence to my diet (1200-1500/day) and regular exercise. Some meds, particularly heart meds do cause weight gain, usually just 3-4 pounds. We're still trying to find a med that will be effective without the weight gain.

    Also be sure your cardiologist is aware of the weight gain because sometimes it is due to congestive heart failure. emoticon

    I too, have added a few pounds and am also having a little difficulty staying on track with my eating, BUT like you I have a plan and am going to keep on keeping on!

    I wish you continued success on your journey!!!
