Ok here we go...another day, another Spark!
Feeling pretty good this morning, I did really well following my plan yesterday. I walked further than I have so far since starting up again and that made me feel great, had a really nice lunch of egg salad on rye with some pears & crystal light and dinner was a nice low carb, low fat boneless pork chop with some green beans and a salad, a few very thin slices of potatoe.
I think I feel much more confident as I get to the mid week, it seems like on Mondays I get a little overwhelmed...but by today - I'm almost there, another day, another week...
I can feel the acceptance inside that this lifestyle change is for the long haul and that it's not a race...no one is chasing me down. I'm always reminding myself that if I stay the course the changes will be there and I'm also just trying to imagine what it would feel like if I could just be happy with the progress so far and just keep moving the ball down the field...it's going to be real nice when this becomes not so new and the feeling of being a fish out of water goes away.
I got alot of great feedback & support from yesterday's blog and I really appreciate all of it. I'm gonna stick to just the weekly weigh-in on fridays' and let my head focus on what's happening each day and not get so obsessed about the scale.
I've only done measurements once so far, almost 2 weeks ago...so I'll be excited to see if there have been any changes next time...I think we are doing it every few weeks to a month.
I'm sticking to the plan today, no matter what!
