Day 39 and doing fine!

Thursday, May 09, 2013

I am not sure why, maybe I was just being suspicious and overly cautious, but I did not accept the free offer of a Spark Coach right away. I didn't want to be asked to do stuff I knew I wasn't ready to commit to... push-ups, hours at the gym, who knows what I thought they were going to ask me to do... perhaps old visions of my WAC drill sergeant were dissuading me!

I bought the new book (which got me 500 Sparkpoints... big WooHoo!) thinking it might help me get past the plateau I've been sitting on for over a week. I had lost an inch on my waist, but not a single ounce on the scale for about 10 days.

I haven't read the book yet, it's on my list but there are a couple of books on my reading list before it. But I was once again offered a bonus with purchase of getting a Sparkcoach. This time, I decided I would go ahead and try.

I love it. I the program over. Little tiny goals. A commitment to 10 minutes of exercise a day. I can do that. I'm enjoying it.

It was just the little nudge I needed to keep pressing toward my goals.

    I liked it as well but I was already too emmersed and committed to the program, so it was overkill for me. Glad you have lost and inch from your waist that's really most important. It's amazing how your body composition can change and your weight barely changes. I believe the fat and muscle trade places. The muscle weighs more so you may be lossing fat but gaining muscle that weighs more. I know I was very frustrated when I started this program as I weighed daily and the weight was very slow to change. I was expecting a lot more as I was doing an extreme exercise program every day and still do. I work out for long hours as this is really something I want to achieve. I can see the results now but still have a good ways to go.

    Good luck and God bless you! emoticon emoticon emoticon
