I got on the scale this morning and it read 169.3. I couldn't be happier. I feel I'm finally making real progress toward my weight goal. More importantly, I feel Spark Coach is keeping me on track and motivated to exercise even when I don't feel like it. The lifestyle change aspect of Sparking definitely is kicking in!

My Spark Coach task for the day is to write down three accomplishments, so here we go:

1. I create a thread in my Spark Coach discussion group called "Today's Triumph." Here, everyone can share the small victories each day and celebrate their accomplishments. My fellow Sparkers have responded enthusiastically to this thread/concept, so I'm proud of this.

2. I'm letting go of one of my "anchor clients," which is scary. But I really want to focus specifically on medical writing, and this client doesn't fit that profile. By letting go of the client, I'll free up time to cultivate other clients. But in the meantime, I don't have a solid plan for replacing the income I'll be losing. I'm proud of myself for taking this scary step to move my business forward.

3. I ate a healthy dinner every night this week so far. Too frequently, I get sucked in to eating the dishes I've prepared for my husband and my mom, which don't conform to my eating plan. (They are more "meat and potatoes" people.) But I found ways this week to create meals that allowed me to enjoy part of what they were eating while sticking to my plan. For example, one evening I did a pork loin in the crock pot. I ate the pork on top of a salad, while they ate it with instant mashed potatoes and jello.

So, that's it. My three main accomplishments for the week. Feeling good today! And I hope all of you are, too!
