WELCOME TO SPARK!!! Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.
1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.
2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.
The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family! *~ Paula *~
Set your goals and then break them into smaller ones.
I was having a big problem with exercising so I joined the 10 minute challenge. It worked. I finished the 4 week challenge and I'm still doing it. Most of the time I go for 10 and end up with 20 or more.
Don't be disappointed in yourself. If you beat yourself up it is harder to get it right. Forgive yourself and you'll be surprised.
Thank you everyone for being a tremendous support. Raspberry you are correct. I cleaned the house, then sat down for Dinner and to watch part of a football game. I fell asleep next to my Husband and when I awoke and began to move.......ugh soooorrrrrreeeeness. 699 days ago
