1 - Month Results

Sunday, December 15, 2013

I'm four weeks in on the Spark 8-week Diabetes Weight Loss Challenge. I have been trying to not eat the food that co-workers have been bringing in to the office. And, when I do, I try to pick the healthier options. I have also been limiting my gluten intake. Most of my meals have been low- to no-gluten. I have also been using our gym at the office. I've used the elliptical 3 - 5 times per week for up to 25 minutes. I have also been doing the Spark seated workout with exercise band 3 times a week.
