Coming back to Spark after 2 years of casually ignoring that I had joined.
I needed to do SOMETHING.
My first goal here was to collect points, specifically enough points a day to earn a 'bonus spin'. I want to up my level and I really don't even know why, just that I want it.
On taking quizzes and reading blog entries and taking polls solely for the purpose of earning points I've learned a bunch. This must be the idea the super smart Spark creators had in behind the point system.
My focus now, based on what I've learned through trivia questions I believe, is to get involved in this community. This will probably be just as hard for me as my fitness journey. I'm more of a silent observer than a jump in and join the crowd type, but dammit I'm going to do it.
This blogging is my version of dipping my toe in the water. Speaking of... tonight the family and I will patrol the beach for 4 hours (this counts as exercise right??) filling in holes, picking up garbage and watching sea turtle nests to make sure the hatchlings go to the water. We're armed with a night vision camera, red light flashlights, and excitement. Chances are we won't see a hatch out tonight because we're doing to early shift, but we can hope.
Wish me luck.
