Happy Sunday Spark People! Full disclosure I am only doing this blog post because I am in the new member calendar challenge and todays challenge is to make a blog post. I don't really know what to say or if my blog post will be any help, but here I am giving it a try anyways.

I love Sundays. I consider them the end of my week (mainly because my planner goes Monday-Sunday) and a day to review and plan. Sundays make me hopeful and optimistic that even if the week I am coming from wasn't great the next week can be better. Thats how today is for me. Last week wasn't the best week. I joined this website, which was a step in the right direction and motivated me to workout, but I continued to eat poorly for most of the week. Today I am hopeful that I can meet all my goals for the coming week and be better. As this new week begins I want to post my goals in hopes that having them out there in the world will motivate me to actually meet them so here we go:

1) Skip 3 desserts this week-- Only 3? Well I have a sweet tooth problem and figured this was a good starting point. On the other 4 days I intend on enjoying my sweets in moderation and picking healthier choices for dessert (like fruit & whipped cream instead of cake).
2) Work out 5 days this week-- Two strength days and three cardio days. I hope to also stay active the other two days, but I don't try to pressure myself into working out everyday.
3) Make healthy food choices at lunch and dinner-- In the summers I nanny so I occasionally find myself eating what the kiddos eat (which isn't always healthy) and when I am with my boyfriend we often pick something quick to eat for dinner.

I hope everyone enjoyed their Sunday and can take a few minutes to set a few easy to reach goals for the week.

    I figure this is a journey, and all those little healthy choices add up to big changes. I love that your goals for next week are all things YOU have control over - that's half the battle! Know there are lots of us right alongside you, cheering you on!

    It all begins someplace and you just started there. Sp is the way to do it.

    We want to remember it took us a few years to put our weight on and it comes off a little at a time, just like it went on. People get frustrated with it not coming off faster than we put it on. But with consistent focus on doing what we are told on SP we will hit our objective. Like many things it just wont get there overnight.

    Make sure you make one of your most focused goals you water intake. Myself, when I hit plateaus its because I am not doing the water correct. I found using a reminder on my phone to be very helpful in making sure I keep on track with the water
