Yesterday it finally came. I finally received The Spark by Chris Downie. I've just read over intro, chapt 1 & 2 of so far. First impressions: easy read, interesting, motivating, and it makes so much sense.
I liked SparkGuy's explanation of how he used a collage and visuals to keep motivation high. I was surprised that 10 minutes workouts were helpful to him when his life focused on work. I thought that 10 minute videos on SparkPeople were due to technical limitations, but maybe not. I understand the thrill of helping someone else and how Pat inspired him to help all of us. Thanks, Pat. Thanks, SparkGuy.
What he had to say about giving yourself permission to fail is profound. And his declaration that days of punitive dieting and deprivation are over should be celebrated!! Thanks, again and again, SparkGuy!
