One month in!!

Thursday, November 14, 2013

One month ago I went to the doctor and he talked to me about the dreaded protein diet. I did step on the scale this morning but this is not my day to weigh in- I know that I am 11 lbs down in a month so I am thrilled with this! I think checking in every day with the spark coach helps quite a bit and doing the 10 min. exercise challenge has also been a big help in getting me to work out for at least 10 min. if not longer. So, I will continue and see what I can accomplish 2lbs at a time through the next month! Besides the weight loss on the scale my most visible to me thing is my wedding ring slides off and on better and my scrubs fit alot better. For the most part, I feel good, not tired-doing more housework & I feel like I am accomplishing more at work. Lets hope the next month is as good as this one was!

Quiet night

Friday, November 08, 2013

Harvest time means family busy in the fields and I am left to myself at home. Very quiet for a Friday night & I have a lot of time to sit, relax and think about my spark journey. Weighed this morning & still 9lbs. At first upset- should have been down 2 more lbs but then I was okay knowing that I had already lost 9 lbs and it has not even been a month!! Came home from work and it was so nice out and walked-beautiful evening. Exercise is beginning to feel like something I want to do & I hope this feeling lasts. I don't necessarily crave chocolate to the point that I am ripping open packages of chocolate chips just to get a taste. In the reading it has said to make a lifestyle change & I am slowly trying. I think some of it is hard when I am cooking for a hard working guy and a 17 year old boy....and I am almost dreading the holidays- family is already telling me the kids of cookies they want but I will make it through! emoticon !

    We find that we still enjoy making cookies for the kids, and have learned that it is up to YOU enjoy only how much you want to. We now get more joy by cooking and giving them away and it makes it easier if they are not around to tempt us..

Assignment: Sabatoge

Friday, November 01, 2013

The assignment from the spark coach is to write about what we would do if someone sabatoges our efforts- the more I think about this it happens everywhere in my life- just today at work a co worker brought doughnuts & she knows I am trying to lose weight- many of us are including herself! I have family members that think all I do is roller coaster diet- and they are right so they look at me like "not again" So I am out to do make a lifestyle change-so far 9lbs down. No one has noticed but me-pants are fitting better-easier to do the walk away the lbs video. Since I am making this more of a lifestyle change- I feel I can try things, but not as much- I am making weighing and measuring a priority- messed up tonight but tracked and am owning the mistake and will make up for it. I am doing this for me-and I am trying to make a difference in my life. I am the only one that matters with this change.

So tonight I went to a Pampered Chef party....Smore' cake, a ham & cheese wrap ( an this was grilled- the cake was made in the microwave) there was a veggie dip....I tried to track it but know that I did not do it justice. I did not take huge portions.....oh and did I mention pumpkin bog wine?! Oh things were soooo good!!:)
I did have a good breakfast and lunch and had 4-500 to use up yet. I think I have been getting cocky since I have been doing well but then again, not doing much, going anywhere & now faced with this situation, I did not handle very well- I better not beat myself up cuz it will happen again just best to live and learn and lick my "wounds". emoticon


Almost 1 week done....

Saturday, October 19, 2013

Well, it has almost been one week since I went to the doctor & he talked to me about the protien diet & made the choice to really put the effort into sparking. I just could not stand it and jumped on the scale this morning instead of waiting until Monday & wow! I lost 6 lbs. I have tracked absolutely everything- work a pedometer & did just 10 minutes of extra exercise- when I had the time!! I even went out to eat & ate chicken drummies at work!! So excited to continue!!
