JUST STARTING OUT

Friday, November 15, 2019

I feel that, for me, it is important to get my food intake on track and better in control first... before I implement an exercise regime. I am currently in my 4th day at Spark and have been tracking my food each day. It has been so hard to stay within my calorie range given how I ate previously. It truly is a strong reminder to see in black and white how quickly calories add up; especially on things like potato chips and ice cream. Yes, I already knew these items were not healthy but I didn't realize how much more they add to my overall daily calories when I can easily substitute better choices. Change is hard but I am determined to do this!

    You might want to add just a bit of exercise too. When I started I walked (just in my house) 100 steps every time I logged a food. I couldn't believe the difference just that little bit made.

    Yes you can! I too had to get a consisted pattern of eating properly and documenting before adding exercise. I do best when I add one thing at a time. Change is hard and I commend you on taking the first steps.
