Weight gain

I wasn't weighing myself for a couple of weeks and when I did I was amazed. I knew my jeans where a little tighter but didn't pay much attention. I have gained 7 pound and that is not good. Had banquets to go to but watched what I ate. I keep to my nutrition page and put down what I eat .

A Postive Snooze Button

One of the Emotion Eaters (Spark Team) goals is to start your day with a positive talk to yourself. What I do is set my snooze button for 5 minutes, but instead of rolling over an going back to sleep for those 5 minutes, I give myself a pep talk. Starting my day on the right foot is too important.
