I am starting day two of challenge. I had to loose a day as my house flooded and it is a disaster. Watch washing machines, dishwashers and hot water heaters. Unbelievable what can go wrong. This is the third day of all the dryers, blowers and dehumidifiers running in all rooms. Carpet is all removed. What a disaster. Three nights sleeping in chair and sofa in game room which is tiled.
This morning fixed the biscuits and gravy. Took about 20 minutes total, but I am a certified chef. I can see where some of the remarks about the time involved and amount of food needed to be purchased can be a downer. Last night I fixed the baked macaroni and cheese and sized it for two people instead of four. My husband loved it. I think I will start a blog and include on it my recipe make-over's for amount and tips to cut down on time.

Hello team SP Solution how's your week been ? Are you ready for the long holiday weekend? Do you think this 2 week program was planned to coinside with the holiday as well ? LOL !!! Just kidding but it will be harder to partake in others' parties don't ya think ??? Well I think so but I will eat healthy regardless, which is what I've been doing most of this week anyway. I may just have to start this whole 2 weeks over again, nothing wrong with that I say. Good thing I bought the book right ???

Have a happy healthy holiday team !!!! and some fun !!!!

DAY 10 team ... how's it going ???

I am having trouble with time this week and preparing the planned meals but I am still making good healthy choices. Last night I had Megs Fried Chicken from an earlier day and it was delicious. I did make one change as it was just to hot here to light the oven so I turned the heat down low on the frying pan added a little bit of water and fresh mushrooms and put a lid on it to cook through. It wasn't crispy anymore but it was so darn good !!!
I did a stretching exercise for 15 minutes last night that I recorded from TV. It was longer (30 min) but it was also intense so I did the best I could.

Hope Day 10 is a good one for everyone.

OMG! Did you see the special last knight with Brian Williams. The devastation is hard to imagine. I have always lived in Hurricane areas but I think Tornadoes are by far worth.
My prayers are for everyone in Moore, OK.

Good evening team. It was a blessing to hear on the news tonight that the death toll was not as high as it was reported yesterday but the devastation is horrifying !!! My prayers will continue for these folks for weeks to come.

I had a good day today as well and when I'm done Sparking I will do my cardio workout !!! And then it's Dancing With the Stars finale !!!! I'd like to think Jacoby will win but I doubt it very much !!!

Have a blessed and comforting evening.

Yes ,they are in my prayers. I live in the Midwest it is not good feeling hearing emergency alerts not knowing how much time you have. The meteorologist have an idea when and where but really tornadoes and hurricanes have there on mind. God Bless them.

Good morning, my thoughts and prayers are with the families in Oklahoma also.

I got up early and got my walk/run in before the heat kicks in. I am staying on track and feeling more energized.

Hope you all have a great day!

Debigene, thank you for your comment.

Yes day # 8....Bring it on. Yesterday I had lost 2 lbs and I made a goal to loose 3 this week but in reality I lost 3 lbs in the first week, so I up my goal to 4 lbs. I have until Thursday to work hard for the 4 lbs, because I'm going away for the rest of the week.

Good Monday Week 2 Day 8 !!!!! I am looking forward to another week and an even better one !!! Hope you are too.

The weather looks dreary here in Charm City so another day I won't get out to ride unless things clear up by this evening. Guess I'll be doing my aerobics inside again.

Have a happy healthy fun day !!!

Scales down a bit more this morning. Proud of myself because I skipped my usual donut between churches and stuck to my lunch plan pretty close even though we had lunch out.
I'm not following every bit item on menus either, but feel like I'm making good substitutions and most of all have been eating reasonable portions and moving more.

Good morning and a blessed Sunday to all. I lose .4 of a pound when I weighed in this morning (my usual day) although I am glad to have lost "something" I am a little disappointed but not so much as to discontinue. I forge on into the program. The best thing has been that I now include fitness into my days, more than I have done in the last 3 years of my lifestyle change. I will continue to do so even if it's just 10 minutes each day, I WILL DO IT !!!

I will admit that I have a hard time following the menu as written but I still am making healthy menu choices and portioned controlled !!! I tend to tweek the menus with what I have on hand because I was not able to purchase all the items required. I have decided that I will continue on The Spark Solution after the 2 weeks for another week untill the end of the month of May.

Just wanted to stop in and say hello and wish a successful week to all.

How had been going all these days?

My mom was in ICU and I was out of me, so I did not come to the Spark Community. So sorry to leave you alone. So let's chat and get up to date.

A happy and peaceful Sunday to all my Sparkling friends!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

There's nothing wrong with using the word "diet". It comes from the Greek word "diaita", meaning way of life. So to lose weight and keep it off we need to change our way of life.

I'm still reading my book but really haven't gotten into the diet yet cause I still need the rest of my food so I have to get that on Wed. But I have a 1200 cal that my doctor put me on and that is why I haven't started my diet yet so maybe this weekend I can get some execrise going tomorrow sometime. On the spark DVD's I can't do all of the exercise cause they will hurt my lower back and most of them are on the floor which I can's be able to get up or unless I craw to get a hold of a chair or a bed. But with the Leslie Sansone's DVD's are easy for me cause they don't go in the floor they just walk and I can do that without no problem.

I'm getting a little nervous with the weekend approaching as that's when I usually fall off the rails - I go great guns Monday to Friday and then cave in over the weekend. I'm guessing I'm not the only one with this problem! I'm going to do some extra prepping tonight to make sure I am really ready with the meal plan and my exercise is scheduled in. Have a great weekend everyone....stay strong. I just saw this little cheerleader in the emoticons, and she inspired me to just imagine I have my own little cheerleader jumping up and down next to me every time I feel myself slipping. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm loving the recipes as well. They take me awhile to prepare, sometimes, but I think that's just because they're new to me and not the recipes I'm so familiar with normally that I can probably prepare them blindfolded.

I'm trying my best not to step on my scale until Monday. I don't want to step on there early and get discouraged if my scale hasn't changed. I do feel lighter, though, if that makes sense. And when I got out of bed this morning, I didn't have to hold onto the bed and the wall to make sure my arthritic ankles and knees would support me before taking my first step. In fact, the pain I normally feel when standing in the morning for the first time was shorter also.

So even without the scale, I can see that something is changing in my body since starting the Spark Solution. :)

Another post-menapausal 50+ arthritis sparker here! Add to that newly diagnosed degenerative disc disease in my upper back.

But nothing gonna stop me!!!!!!! emoticon

Loving the meal plans and only have to tweak a bit here and there.

I am the queen of modifying workouts (cuz I will not give them up). Also have had both knee ligaments repaired as well as both shoulder cuffs! You can find a way to do almost anthing you want with modification! I do zumba, hike and have a personal trainer.

Good morning and yes it's Friday Day 5 .... Woo Hoo !!!

I am so proud of myself I just hope the scale is just as proud, LOL !!! My pride is that I've been doing cadio and toning/stretching videos in the evening, just 20-30 mins mind you but like I said .... I'VE BEEN DOING IT !!!!! The healthy food is not as big of a problem it's portion control that can be difficult for me and this has def helped get a handle on that !!! Do I hear another Woo Hoo !!!!

Hope everyone has a Fantastic Healthy Friday team !!!!

Good Morning!
I just sent you a request to be your friend.
So far this is a great program for me. I can't wait to see the results in the scale come Monday.

Have a great day everyone!

Good morning team and Happy Healthy Day 4 to all !!!!

WOW this is really an active team, so much so that I find it hard to keep up with all the posts but I love the activity here. I don't belong to many groups because I like to participate on a regular basis so I can be an ACTIVE member. I am looking forward to making some new friends here that continue to stay committed to living healthy !!! So many times life gets in the way and people tend to drop off the radar here.

Hope Day 4 is as successful for each of you as Days 1, 2, 3 have been !!! We Can and Will do this .... it's not so hard at all. Keep on Pushing team !!! Woo Hoo !!!!

So great to hear how well everyone is doing in the first few days. I have to admit I didn't even have time to chick in during the first two days as I was so busy planning meals and fitting in fitness (along with work, kids, etc). So I'm sneaking a quick look while I'm at work. I have found it challenging to adapt the meals - I'm under 5'2" and menopausal so am aiming for 1250 calories per day- but am persevering. I'm really enjoying the meals (that tuna yesterday was delicious!). Just came back from a 20 minute walk at lunchbreak and will enjoy the sunshine again tonight when I go for a bike ride. Every little bit helps emoticon . Best of luck to all.

IS1GAR,

I'm actually have more energy than I did in college.... maybe because then I was existing on triple chocolate bars or egg custard till I got home for the evening meal. I can't deny the creaky joints, though.

Great things never come from comfort zones.
