Today is my SEVEN year Sparkversary! I just want to acknowledge what a blessing this website has been to me. It has really helped keep me focused on health and fitness. SP has been the biggest factor in taking my fitness to a whole new level. I found such encouragement and inspiration and felt like "Yes, I can do it". So a great big Thank you to Chris Downey and his fabulous Spark staff.

It was dark outside and cold, but I wanted to get back into doing a walk before breakfast. My DH is still not walking but I think by the end of the week he will feel recovered enough to give it a go. I decided to do my walk on the treadmill which I usually try to avoid like the plague. I got it done! I listened to music and felt good about myself when the timer hit 30 minutes and I hadn't quit. After breakfast, I headed to the gym for a 1 hour spin class.

This week the schedule shows me working the lunch shift on Mon and Tues. I haven't worked for a few weeks so it was nice, rather than a hassle to work. The customers were in a good mood and for the most part everyone left happy. I did have one table who thought their fish and chips weren't cooked enough ... so I got them 2 more pieces of fish. I noticed she picked off all the breading so I'm thinking deep fried fish might not have really been what she should have ordered. I was pretty busy and just had a quick cup of soup for lunch. Feel good about my eating today. No crackers and I stayed out of the fries!

    Nice work on your food options of the day. Have to laugh about picking the breading off the fish.....working with the public is simultaneously wonderful and awful (and I don't mean awe inspiring....although then again sometimes what people do is rather amazing and not necessarily in a positive way). Glad you can ease into work and even enjoy it a bit. My seven year coming up this week two...I think in the next two days. I think we're in the same sparkclass. Wow time flies.

    P.S. had to go check. my 7th is on Thursday.
