Back to the drawing board...

Saturday, June 04, 2011

Over the last 2 months, I've had to work more, went to visit my family in Detroit and got sick. Prefacing all of that, I had a big life change at the end of last year. It was a positive change, but nevertheless, a change.

All that has done a number on my spark. I feel like the needle on the scale has been nailed in one spot. Grrrrr!! It's making me angry. I don't normally see anger as a positive emotion. But, I think this time, I'm gonna use this anger energy for all it's worth!

The way that I'm gonna do that is just start all over. Back to the drawing board! I'm gonna take a fresh look at my schedule. Identify the best way to get in a 5-day workout week like I had in the past. Look closely at the way I'm eating by using the tracker loyally. And, add in additional opportunities to move around. I have a desk job. Also, I'm going to take a look at any stressors I have and make sure I'm taking time out to relax. And, while I'm at it, I'll look at how many hours of quality sleep I'm getting and how much water I'm drinking.

Whew! That's a lot! But, I know you'll help me Sparkfamily.

As I live and breathe, I'm starting fresh.

    this might sound crazy , but find foods that work with your chemistry.

    i make this mixture for breakfast , lunch and dinner. i have lost 6 pounds in a week. i cook

    4 large portabella mushrooms sliced, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, 2 large onions sliced, 2 large green peppers, 2 cans green beans and 5 sliced chicken sausages.

    it makes enough for at least 2 days, three meals a day. sounds crazy but it taste good and most importantly it's working. good luck emoticon
