Daily Health Challenge (Spark, WW, everyone!)

Recommended Posts

Jen - I go back and forth with the treadmill. We have a love-hate relationship. I think I'm honestly just tired. I work shift work and have been on nights this week, which screws with my body.

 

As a sidenote... I thought this was interesting... I've been dieting for a little less than a month now - eating REALLY well, with an average of 300-400 calorie meals and low carbs (not none - just healthy carbs and no pasta/potatoes). Last night I decided I didn't want a salad. We were going to have grilled chicken, grilled veggies, and baked potatoes. I was REALLY excited about my baked potato... I couldn't even finish half of it! I was so full I felt sick! And I'm not talking about a fattening meal - 400 calories.

Oh boy, what's wrong with mehuh.gif I did NOTHING last night. Well, I do have a cold and I couldn't stop sneezing last night.

 

I didn't do the lunges or eat the new vegetable (from Sunday's challenge.) However, I did buy brussel sprouts (since I haven't had them since I was a kid.) I will have them tonight, I will do the lunges tonight and I am going to check everything I eat today to make sure there is no added sugar. (This one is going to be tough.) How is everyone else doing?

Ok, so I probably should have planned better for today. But I'm stumped!!! What can I eat (besides fruits and vegetables) that doesn't have added sugarhuh.gif All I've eaten so far today, is a banana. I need some other breakfast ideas. This is hard!!!! And I'm starving.

Well, I totally forgot to do the lunges until I was laying in bed and realized it. lol. But I did the elliptical yesterday and went to yoga this morning so I guess that could make up for it. I have worked out 4 days out of the last 6. I haven't done that in a long time. It feels good.

I didn't even look at today's challenge until after I ate 3 dunkin donuts munchkins smile35.gif But it was only 2 WW points. It is a hard one though. Everything seems to have sugar added. I will do my best for the rest of the day.

I still haven't eaten anything today besides that banana. I don't think I'm going to be able to do today's challenge. EVERYTHING has added sugar. I can't do it. I'm off to Subway for a veggie sandwich (on wheat.) Sorry guys!

Brussel sprouts are goooood. Last week I roasted them with a touch of olive oil and salt and pepper, and they were fantastic! Yum!

I can't help on the sugar thing... I think the key is to make all your own food for the day. The daily challenges aren't working so well for me, but I am following my calories, working out at least 5 times a week, and I feel good. More than the challenges, talking with you ladies is very motivating! Thanks!

I'm off to the gym now - last chance workout since its scale time again tomorrow :)

YUCK!!!!! I always hated brussel sprouts. I love every other vegetable except that one. That's why it was the only "new" vegetable I could get. Let's see how I do with it.

I think it all depends on how you cook them Jen... I never liked them as a kid, but I really like them now. They're awesome roasted, or even steamed with a little lemon juice. Yum!

OK so I totally spaced on the challenge for a few days but I think so far I haven't eaten any "added" sugar. I had a yogurt with shredded wheat for breakfast andf a Zone enchilada meal for lunch. So far, so good!

 

I'm going to make up for the lunges and do those push-ups tonight!

Hey Ladies, sorry I've been so bad with the challenge's this week. But I think I have a good excuse. My sister had a baby yesterday!!!! I have a brand new baby nephew. I was babysitting my niece all day yesterday while my sis and her hubby went to the hospital, so I'm really off on the dieting. But at least I'm still keeping up with the water and not drinking diet coke (16 days now.) I will try to work out and do lunges, crutches, push ups tonight. But my food intake has been horrendous!!! Oops! I will get back on track after the weekend, I promise.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
