Day 1: Finally, a good food day

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

Ah, Sparkers, I have missed you.

Since May 31, when we got the news hubby had been promoted and transferred to Houston, I have been obsessed with getting this house ready to sell while simultaneously working. During that one-month span, I had to sacrifice certain activities. One of them was SP. No weigh-ins, no food logging, and (worst of all) no formal exercise.

Amazingly, though, I don't seem to have put on much weight. A couple of pounds. Still, the past week has been particularly bad, food-wise. My mom, stressed out by the prospect of moving and some health woes, has been pushing junk food on my relentlessly. And what 'good daughter' would disappoint her mother by refusing to eat an ice cream bar with her? Or potato chips? With dip? I could go on.

At any rate, today I finally experienced the first relatively normal Spark Day since 5/31/13. I rose at the usual time, ate the usual bowl of cereal, had a healthy lunch and dinner, and even worked in a tiny amount of exercise. Namely, a quarter-mile trek home from my mother's house after putting her trash bin on the curb.

Although there's still a lot to be done in order to sell this house, buy a new one, and actually complete the move, I feel I got a big dose of normalcy today. And it reminded me how good my Spark habits feel when I practice them.

    Hope the moving goes well. I absolutely hate moving! Here's an idea though, as you are cleaning, painting etc...why don't you turn on and turn up some dance music? Your chores will become a workout...and just maybe a little more tolerable! emoticon Good luck!
