That is the answer to the question, "To Spark or not to Spark?" So my couple days away to get my little guys back in school (pre-K, 2nd, and 5th grades) and to get my own school year started (over 100 students at last count) turned into like a week plus, and I gained 5 pounds. FIVE POUNDS. I shouldn't be shocked. I ate and drank my way through the stress. Not only are my clothes tight, but my arthritis pain is noticeably increased because I'm stressing those joints more.
Before my "Spark break/disaster" I had been beating myself up for not making progress on the scale. Now I realize that stopping that creep upward on the scale was a small victory, and I should have valued it more.
My behavior changes today----but having said that, I have realized that one of my big fears is that I will exercise properly and eat properly and still not lose weight. How will I know if I don't give it my best shot, though? Thank you for listening!
