    re: your comment on the article about healthy habits for those who've reached their goals. I hate tracking food also and I especially hate SparkPeople's tracker. I 'm on a food plan where counting calories or downsizing portions is not necessary. However, I have found it helpful to do something else. I've made a file in my documents on my computer called "Diet Records" --it's a combination journal and food diary. I make mention of what I ate...If I ate something that was not on my plan I tried to figure out why and I propose to myself a different course of action that may help the next time. If I was tempted to go to the bakery section of a restaurant and have one of everything there (as I did yesterday) and instead I had a bowl of fruit salad which was more delicious and a high five to myself for a victory.. I make notes of all these things..I t is much more motivating to look back on my struggles and victories than it is to endlessly count calories and measure your food. (Look into Dr Joel Fuhrman's books, Eat to Live and EAting for Health.. They will change your life)

    GREAT job on getting thing BTW...YOu look beautiful.

    Wow, you DO have a full plate... and that's before adding law school at night! Wishing you enough sleep, good nutrition and don't forget to take a break from briefing every hour to do some aerobic activity or stretching for a few minutes. It'll pay off.

    “The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation. Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what? After you start doing the thing, that's when the motivation comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it.”
    -John C. Maxwell

    Get ready for a healthy week, Sparkfriend! You know what you want, and you know what you need to do in order to make it happen...so just do it! Push yourself, even if you don't feel like it...because you really are worth the effort!
    Hugs,

    "The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true....action precedes motivation. You have to "prime the pump" and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals. Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day."
