I'm not entirely sure what happened, but I have taken 3 weeks off from Sparking. The good news is that I haven't regained any of the 30 lbs that I lost. This tells me that, when the time comes, I'll be able to maintain. This fills me with confidence as that was one of my concerns. Losing weight is one thing -- but keeping it off? I grew sick just thinking about it! But, these three weeks have proven that I can do it...with relatively little effort (or perhaps six months of good habits are ingrained in my whole being?)
So, now that I know, it's time to get back to business. I didn't do too well yesterday -- I didn't eat enough -- only 900 calories. I've already eaten almost 900 calories with just breakfast and lunch today, so I'll do much better.
I haven't done my workout (I tend to do videos -- we've all seen what happens when I try to take a walk! LOL). I wanted to wait until my son got done with his math. Yesterday, he sat at the table all day long, wasting time, when he finally got done. I didn't want to give him any excuses today not to get it done. Even still, it took a couple of hours longer than it should have. I suppose I should just put up the math...but he needs to do it and honestly, the work takes an hour, at most -- if he doesn't waste time.
To fill time, I've been reading blogs and playing around with mine. I went to Julie's and found a neat little imood icon and then one thing led to another and I downloaded a Mojikan to the site. I hope to wake him up eventually...because the fact that he's tired is starting to feel personal! LOL
