The Spark Solution - Week 1
Sunday, May 19, 2013
I've completed Week 1 of the The Spark Solution Challenge.
I had reached a plateau and wanted to try something new, but I wanted proper guidance and this book and challenge has been very informative and very helpful. My start weigh-in was: 213.6 and this morning's weigh-in is 210.0. I have increased energy, sleeping better, no daily food cravings and less stress.
I like the new recipes, their variety, which includes new food items (some I had not eaten or tried in a recipe). I haven't even thought about eating out this week!
One of my favorite recipes is the Dijon-Herb Pork Tenderloin. I'm learning how to cook, bake etc., and I always overcook a roast of any kind. This is so easy and quite tasty too!
The Bacon-Swiss Scramble with Spinach is excellent! Can you imagine BACON!
My goal for Week 2: Stay motivated, eat more protein and complete Week 2!
My favorite Insider Tip: Day 2, by Amanda. "She recommends to clean your house more vigorously by doing things like faster vacuuming or dusting. The calories burned do add up."
