My own program is my first priority. I love it when I can give good advice to a fellow Sparker. I like sharing Secrets to Success. Welcoming new members is fun and feels good. Reading blogs and giving supportive comments to other members is often motivating to me. Expressing myself through blogs helps me clarify my thinking, celebrate my successes, and get support.
But when it comes down to whether I get my exercise in or rack up SparkPoints, I choose exercise. When it comes to whether I write a blog or cook a healthy meal, I choose the meal. When it comes to keeping up with my Friend Feed or tracking my own food, I track.
It is great when I can do what I need to do for my program and earn all my SparkPoints, read lots of blogs, pay attention to my SparkFriends, etc. But when time is short, I don't think it is selfish to do what I need to do for me.
So, I encourage you, too, to take care of yourself first.
Raylinstephens was the first Sparker to encourage me to put my own program first. I want to thank her for this valuable advice!
