Yesterday evening I was making choices about what I wanted to eat keeping in mind my calories remaining. For me, I prepare dinner at lunch and then eat lighter later in the evening. Most of the time, this works. However, I have to stay on top of my tracking throughout the day, to know how much I can eat.
I had become "Lucy Goosy" with certain foods. Popcorn is one of those foods. So, I found out specifically how many calories are in 1 cup of popcorn popped in oil. FYI it's 55 calories per cup. So, I ate 3 cups of popcorn with 1 ounce of cheese melted on top. I also had 1 fresh local peach cut up with exactly 1/2 cup of vanilla ice cream. YUM YUM! It was exactly what I wanted to eat, but by measuring portions I stayed within my daily calorie range. I can't get over how great it feels to be in control of what and how much food is going into my body.
I AM ENCOURAGED AND EXCITED!

Do you ever feel like a "broken record"?! This summer has actually been filled with wonderful memories and special events. Unfortunately, I have completely ignored my good,healthy habits and the weight that I lost climbed back on with a few extra pounds as well. I have been so convicted about my poor health choices. Today, I gave my Spark Page a Fall Face Lift and I am RE-FOCUSSED in my words about beginning again today. NOW I need my actions to line up with my words.
I do want to be all that God created me to be. I know that because of Jesus, I have what it takes to walk in freedom and victory. "Help me, Father God!" And also, please help me dear Sparkers to take this journey one day at a time. Before I know it, I will be standing on the top of the mountain looking out at the breath-taking view.

This is my first blog post for July. The summer is flying by!
My daughter had all 4 wisdom teeth extracted this past Monday, so both of us have had cabin fever. And now that my cutie is doing better from her surgery, the house is torn apart and covered with sheets and tarps as my hubby sands our new kitchen wall. All this instability is a great excuse to overeat and I did. Now I did get in my swimming laps almost everyday, but I gained weight this week, which is no shocker. I did not track my food on any of the days. I am SO GRATEFUL for Spark and for the 5% Summer Challenge. I just read someone's quote from Dory from the Finding Nemo movie. "Just Keep swimming." If I keep moving forward; if I focus on what I CAN do like swimming laps and tracking my food on Spark; EVENTUALLY, I'm gonna love the outcome; 12 pounds off this body!!! This is my 5% goal and a very obtainable one.
