Fighting the Good Fight...

Monday, August 19, 2013

So I am about a month into when I really began Sparking seriously. Maybe five weeks. And I can feel that ol' devil impatience creeping up on me. I want results, dammit!

This scares me because in the past, this is where I've thrown in the towel and given up. I don't want to do that. I need to get my weight down to a healthy range for my height - right now I am in the obese category.

For two weekends in a row, I've had some food issues. On the positive side, I've worked out at least six days a week, for the past month. So that's good, right?

It's so frustrating. I'm not even sure why I'm struggling, but I am.

    I agree there is no giving up. Hang in there and just take it one day at a time. We are here for you! emoticon

    Oh, dear, I'm glad you read my blog today. Just hang in there, doll. Hey, you're doing more exercising than me! Expect a blog about that later in the week. In the meantime, go back and read my blog from today, because that is everything I would say to you. Stay strong, chica!!

    Transformation does not happen overnight. It's a process and I think you are doing pretty well. You are incorporating workouts into your lifestyle. That will help to burn fat and build muscle. You need muscle to burn fat. Working out also helps to increase your metabolism or the overall calorie burn you have in a day.

    Keep working on the diet. You will get there. Maybe pick one meal of the day that you focus on and get to where you get that one consistently right. Plan to snack on healthy stuff. I have a bowl of clementines on the kitchen counter and nectarines in the fridge.

    HEY!!!! There is NO giving up in Sparking!!! Keep on keeping on!!! emoticon

    Yes, this journey takes time, but YOU ARE WORTH IT!!!!!

    You don't have to be perfect, you just have to be persistent. I have not been at this all that much longer really than have you, but I can promise it gets easier the longer you stick with it.

    Are you staying in your food range? I know you said you had issues for the two weekends.. How are you working out? and for how long.. One thing Spark says is 'You are an experiment of one' After you get used to the plan you might find out you need fewer or more calories or might have to do more or less in the workout than other people. I'm not an expert, but I'd like to know more in comments so I can maybe help troubleshoot with the rest of the team..

    Whatever you decide to do, good luck! And don't pitch it in! Stay Strong!
