I've become enthralled with earning as many spark points as possible lately. I realized my points earned are largely devoid of wellness and other non workout/nutrition-based points, so I added some other 'Other' goals to my list in areas that I know I need work in....
... house work... yuck.
So, in order to earn points today I added Doing Laundry, Cleaning, Sweeping, Dusting, and other chores to my list.
I know that an orderly home adds serenity to one's mental well being, and I'm confident that earning points for doing the work will help me continue to improve in that area.
Today, to earn my Spark Points, I added 'Fold Laundry' to my appointment calendar, and then added 'Clean Something'. I cleaned my bedroom, folded laundry, started a new load, picked up, and made the bed for my Spark point today.
This is a particularly celebrated accomplishment, because today I was dangerously close from being overcome with "Do-Nothing Syndrome." I did manage to get my morning work out in, but it was down hill from there. Nothing puts me to sleep faster than a warm shower, warm blanket, and slightly rainy day, not to mention the urge to bake a cheese cake that has 2.5 cups of sugar in it. (Can you BELIEVE that the sweet taste of Gatorade satisfied my sugar craving instead!!!)
See?... Spark People truly saved the day!
