GRAPEFRUIT Game - Week 6 (The "F" Week)

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Feeling the Furtive pressure to Fill this blog with curse words over my lack of progress. If the letter "F" does not tempt just that, nothing does. Fixed at Five-ish pounds down I am, when we all are supposed to be around 7.5. Probably it's my Failure to Feel the Fascination with the Frigging Sparky nutrition tracker.

Famished I am at meal time often enough, and Fiddling with Food data entry is not something I do with my previous Fervor for the Fastidiousness of nutrition tracking my Food. Facts are facts, and yes I am Frustrated with myself and my Fred Flintstone physique (hey, "physique" SOUNDS like it starts with "F"!

Wow did I ever just find a pejorative and profane caption on a Cookie Monster and what one can do with the letter "F" if it means cookie moderation! Can't post it here, on PG Spark... So, how about you? Post below! Doubtlessly, you are indeed on the Fast track to greater Sparky success!

So yesterday, as I was Forlorn and Facing the mirror, pondering the Firestone appearance of my belly (yes, the Flipping spare tire), I Figured I would venture into the social side of Spark and Find some Flippin' inspiration from the Four percent of all Sparkies who are male (you Females always look Fine to me).

Where I Found myself instead was on "Triangle-Woman" 's blog, and her daily Flippin' countdown to summer! As she Factually observes, no corner of the Four-umverate Features of the Sparky lifestyle can be Forgotten (Four-umverate is triumvirate with a fourth corner, sort of like Famous George W's hat worn but with an extra corner). Triangle's Four corners generally are Food (with tracking), the Sparky water of which we all know (many Fluid ounces a day), Fitness (such as gym workouts and the like), and attitudinal/psychological.

The last one was easy for me; she had me in her title. Summer is coming. With Fierce determination, the calendar Forcibly leaves winter behind (Finally!) and Faces warmer weather, which means among other things, wearing less clothes, showing more Flesh, belly-Flops in the pool. Now, without Further delay, this Fool clicks onto the Nutrition Tracker to practice what I preach...!

Have a good week, spark-Friends!

    Forever thankful to the tri-cornered Female Sparkster whose Fantastic Summer Streak blog this Fine day intrigued me to Flip over to your blog! Well done, well done BOSS61! How reFreshing (partial credit???) to Find that there is more than one "F" word in the English language! And so today, with the inspiration of both of you, I don the Fore-mentioned Four-Cornered hat: I am set like Flint to Flourish in Fortifying Food and Free Flowing water, to approach my Fitness with Furor, to track Fastidiously, and not Forget to Further a Favorable attitude. For it's certainly more than Feasible, as you have both Furbished my Spark! Spark On Fellow Sparksters!

    Thanks for the fabulous, fantastic, phenomenal and fun blog! and thanks for featuring my countdown to summer! I love the way you turned my "trifecta" into "four corners"

    You are right. The "attitudinal/psychological" has been key. I think I will add that aspect to my check list...

    I have to Force myself to keep my Focus Fixed on the prize. I keep Forgetting that Firming the Flab requires Full particpation of the Spirit, and Flubbing my efforts leads to Flatline results. If I want to look Fabulous by my Birthday in August, I need to Finish each day's goals; not Feeble excuses. I want Fantastic progress.
    How's that for the letter 'F'..... emoticon

    Well, I am still plugging along...hope to have another pound loss by tomorrow. (was not at home last night, so will get weighed tomorrow am) That will give me a total of 5 pounds, which is Fairly reasonable. Of those Four corners of which you speak, I believe they are all very important, but the psychological one should be the Foundation. It is the one that trips me up all the time. I will continue with another week of Fanatical Food and Fitness tracking along with Fountains of Sparky water all propelled with Fabulous motivation!
    May the Force be with you all!!

    Loved this! Yes, tracking can be challenging, but I find that when I don't track I think I can eat all I want. Not true!!! So I put it down---like it or not. It's been very helpful to me to see that a little "healthy granola" (granted ti was chocolate cherry) is over 300 calories for 1/4 cup!!!

    So, have a fabulous time frantically tracking your food and you find that you will be looking fine!
