5/7/2013 Spark Coach Challenge

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

Well, the Spark Coach challenge for today is to not eat after 7 pm. Wow! Do they really know how to hit me below the belt! I almost always have an evening snack. I don't eat a lot of protein in the evening, because it is suppose to be better to eat a small carbohydrate snack. If I have the calories left, I do eat a small snack. The bad part is that is when my sweet tooth wants to be satisfied!! Usually a non-fat candy or my dark chocolate...if I have fat left for the day. This is the only way I can keep it to one sweet treat a day. If I eat sweets during the day...then I crave them all day long. If I wait until evening, I can have one serving and then be satisfied. emoticon There are times when I will have some fruit. It will either be fresh, if I have it. Frozen or canned is my next options.

So, since I don't blog in the evening I decided to blog now and I will have to report if I was able to not eat after 7 pm tomorrow.

I did take 2 walks today and did a load of laundry at my friends where I have to go up and down her stairs several times. Good exercise. What Coach Nicole would call NEAT exercise. Basically it is exercise that doesn't count as a work out, but adds to your movement for the day. (Let me know if I am wrong about that!! Pretty sure that is what she meant by that.)

So have a great day. Hope you have sunshine and warmth in your neck of the woods!!

    They are really referring to mindless eating in front of the computer or television. But wanted us to try to challenge ourselves to not eat anything after 7 pm tonight. That is usually my snack time!! I ate it a little earlier tonight!
