The Spark Book Notes
Saturday, March 01, 2014      1 comments

Today, I am officially starting the 28 day Spark Program. It is from the book by Chris. It is a lot like the web site. But I'm hoping it will help motivate me (like Spark Coach did a couple of months ago). Truthfully, I'm not lacking much in... Read more

No Weight Loss
Thursday, February 20, 2014      3 comments

So, I've been re-planning (using the SP goal sheet). I just noticed that for weeks 2,3 & 4 of the 5% Challenge, I have had many LOW calorie days. I think that may be why my weight loss has stalled. A couple of months ago when I started calorie c... Read more

Today, I reset my fitness goals for 45 min of cardio a day & 15 min of strength training (both 6 days a week). This adds up to about 360 minutes a week. That is about average for what I've done the last 5 weeks. That change resulted in my calori... Read more

The videos they have from a lady named Christina were really good these last 2 weeks. Today, she said we can't use obedience in one area to cover up for sin in another area. I know I have been guilty of this many times before. You know, you say... Read more

So, this week's focus word is "PEACE". For some reason, I missed this at the beginning of the week. But, I have learned some things from other teachers this week that seem to flow right along with that thought. Joyce Meyer said we have the... Read more

These are my notes from the last 2 days. The title of the chapter is "I'm not defined by numbers". I have been struggling with this some lately. The scale has definitely not been falling as fast as I'd like. However, I think God is trying ... Read more

I read on another Sparker's blog about setting mini-goals. Just for 1 month. So for me, I plan to stick with getting 10 g of fiber a day. I know that's not alot, but its a base for me to shoot for. I will update this blog at the end of Feb. Not ... Read more
