.well hell.

Monday, August 19, 2013

So last week (well, half of it) was my first week back on Spark. I have decided it's way beyond time for me to get back on track. It's been a tough summer. My thyroid has blown out of control; my diabetes has blown out of control and my arthritis has blown out of control. Now mind you, I've stayed active, been eating right so I really don't know what's caused everything to go haywire. Just my weird genetically flawed body playing tricks with me once again. I had to have surgery on my face last week to have a growth removed and have been dealing with stitches down the side of my face...... just been a tough summer. So last week I decided I would get back on track with Spark. Well I kind of failed at that too.

I got on Spark; that was about it. I didn't eat well; I didn't exercise like I should and I didn't track like I should. So I don't consider that I really got back on Spark. Spark can do SO much more for me than just giving me Spark points and goodies! Spark can help keep me on track; help me to be healthy; help me to be fit. It can encourage me to eat right and exercise; above all it can help me to be healthy. And that's what I need!

The good news is, I guess, when I got on the scale this morning I hadn't gained an ounce. Not one. Schewwww! Dodged that bullet. Now granted, I didn't lose an ounce, but at least nothing came on. So for that I'm grateful.

So now, today, in this pouring rain (yet again) I will work hard this week to use Spark for it's intended purpose. To track and eat right; to get in those fitness minutes and to feel good this time next week when I get on the scale!!!

    Hey, you're getting back into it little by little, and considering everything that's been going on, there's bound to be distractions. Trust me, you are doing great, you had a big weekend full of exercise, so that's gotta count for something.

    Hope you're having an amazing week!!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
