Well. I just had a 2 week detour from Sparkpeople and let me tell you, I need this site to keep me focused and on track. It's a daily reminder to what my future goals are. It truly motivates you to hear the positivity from other members, the inspiration from the members have reached their goals and are maintaining them. When I veer away from this site I slowly veer away from exercising and focusing on eating properly. I've been down this road before, but this time I've actually managed to NOT put on more than 1 pound. so now, this week it's back to work on ME! I'm going to ease back into my elliptical workout and focus on more strength training. I'm trying to gather new recipe ideas and want to also incorporate my children into exercising too.
My 7.5 year old daughter asked me last week "Are you still doing Spark?" I told her "Yes" but truthfully I hadn't been on the site or exercised in quite awhile. She had seen me read the book last month, as well as frequent the site daily. So I guess you could say my daughter has detoured me back to the Spark site.
Remember, just because you had a detour, doesn't mean you can't get back on track to where you were going! What matters, is that you get back on track!
