Day 14

Monday, June 03, 2013

Made it through the first phase of the Spark Solution! I am feeling really good. I went off of the calorie counting and portion controlling on Saturday. It sort of just happened - we got a spontaneous offer from my sis-in-law to babysit, and we had an afternoon out and about. We ate out and ran errands. I made the choice to enjoy the day and to not obsess over food. I didn't over-indulge too badly, but by the days end I really did feel a difference in my over all energy and sodium intake. Wow, I was thirsty.

I woke up Sunday feeling a difference in the two styles of eating. I found myself looking forward to getting back to the Spark style of eating and planning...which is not how I EVER feel about getting back on wagons. But this feels less like a wagon and more like a healthy approach to living. What I'm most happy about is that I didn't feel any discouragement for taking a day away. I didn't feel like I had to give up or start over. I just had to get back to it the next day, no loss or self-guilt trips.

Tomorrow I take on phase 2, and I'm ready! Clocked in a good workout yesterday, and stuck to around 1300 calories. I'll weigh myself and take measurements tomorrow morning and see where I'm at, before starting phase 2.
