Days until vacation: 26 - I've unlocked a magical secret (not really but still)

Saturday, May 30, 2015

Wowwwwww the time is flying by! Just kidding, it's not. Even though it was a short week at work, it felt very long. The constant rain is STILL not helping. But the weatherman says El Nino is about to shift and we should see happier, dryer times. At least Green Country will be out of a drought for a little while. But at a price of lives and homes being lost. Very sad for those flood victims but as always true Okie spirit is out in full force and everyone is coming together to help those communities.

Anway, my first week back on SP in over 2 years has been rather successful. I like how they give you the option of displaying which nutrients you care about on your tracker and I had added fiber to mine because I know that is something I don't get enough of. But WHOA, I REAALLLLY don't get enough. It's quite eye opening when the minimum recommended amount is 25 and you're tracking and realize you're only getting 5 or 6. YIKES! So I've been, as recommended, gradually increasing my fiber intake. I imagine this is why I never feel full, but with the increase I've felt a lot better and other digestive "issues" seem to be getting much easier as well.

So my official first week back on SP helped me achieve a 5lbs weightloss! That puts me at 6.5lbs to go to reach my vacation mini-goal. I realize the first week on a program is usually the best but I am going to keep at it and hope for continued results, even if they slow down a bit.

To all my Sparkers, have a great weekend and I'll update next week!
