5/8/2013 I did it!!

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

Yes, I accepted the challenge put to me by Spark Coach yesterday and was successful. I didn't eat after 7 pm last night. Instead of eating my dinner at 5 or 5:30 pm I waited until a little after 6 pm. I wasn't very hungry as I consumed lots of water yesterday and ate a good amount of protein during the day. I still had calories left to have my non-fat candy. I chose to eat a serving of circus peanuts. I don't have to say it. It is like eating sugar! I guess I could just go to the sugar bowl and have a couple teaspoons and not have to pay for the candy! Oh, but that wouldn't be as satisfying to me! Circus peanuts bring back good childhood memories; the sights and sounds that were around me when eating them. (I know. You say how can she remember all that?) Well, I used to have a very good memory and it is getting better again. I think a lot of it was the medication I was on for so many years and of course the dreaded peri menopause!! I am not in the fog I was at the end of last year. Guess it is a combination of things. Might just be the healthy lifestyle I am leading!!

On to another subject. Has anyone listen to Spark Radio this week? Did you hear Dr. Pam Peeke talk about SMART goals? Wow! I wrote them down, because I didn't want to forget them. Smart is an acronym for: Specific, Measurable, Action Oriented, Realistic and Time Sensitive. Goals help us with our healthy lifestyle by directing us to have balance. Who doesn't need a little balance in their life?? I know I do!! I am going to post this on my bathroom mirror to see every time I look in the mirror. It will be my incentive to keep on the straight and narrow; to remember how important goals are in my life. emoticon This is what I want to see more often!!

I started the 10 minutes of exercise a day challenge and didn't do so well the first week. I have decided as of yesterday I am starting it again. Two good days in a row and counting!!

I also think today is the day to measure myself again. The last measurements were from 5-31-11 in my DPP class. It is time to redo and celebrate!! I know I have lost many inches since then. emoticon to them all is what I say and I hope to lose more on this journey to a healthier life!!

So won't you join me in making some SMART goals and joining a challenge? Remember it is a new day. A day to start over and make it count!!
