    Such a terrible thing to do...there was talk about canceling the 5K run I was in on Wednesday, but in the end they decided to hold the event and we ran and kept the Boston folks in our thoughts. If we cancel events, the bad guys win!

What's Up in April?

Monday, April 01, 2013

April Fools Day.

I always hated the term since I was a child. The bullies in my elementary school enjoyed it a bit too much for me. Although I wasn't the one being bullied, I hated seeing others mistreated.

So I chose to combine a few "foolish" mistakes I've made when I was new to the site.

1. grossly miscalculated food and drinks I tracked.
By default, many meats are indicated in units, not servings, so I may have out 1 slab of bacon for all I knew.

2. Getting points by mistake. Sooooooo did not know what the heck I was doing.
"let's select this to see what happens..." Hmmmm...eventually I earned a trophy. COOL!
Yep. I was really stupid. Like getting a new cell phone. Who reads the manual? Only if problems arise, right?

3. The trivia questions - I should know this based on ???...Oh! Articles I've read.
Duh! I was probably scoring in the lowest point range. No need for even looking at the leader board. It's not like I'd ever be listed.
Nice to know though... emoticon

4. Last, but not least, getting friends. Hey! I never "clicked" anybody for a while until I realized that I could pick them as a friend. They'd also have to "friend" me. Don't laugh. I JUST opened a Facebook account. Go figure!

Well, I was a fool. Why? I should've READ what to do and followed the directions. This is what I teach my students to do.

Feel free to tell me about your "foolish" actions you committed on this site. Let's all get a good laugh. See. No bullying here! emoticon

WALLAHALLA 4/2/2013 2:57PM

    Before I discovered the button to click to "friend" somebody, I used the search thing for finding a buddy, then sent out sparkmails asking people to be my friend. Couldn't figure out why no one was responding. Later, after I knew a little more, I looked for their sparkpages. Most of them had not been active on Spark for months or years, emoticon Ooops!

It seems that every week I learn how to do or find something new on Spark. In the beginning it was information overload.

    This is an eye opener blog for sure! Let's see I stopped tracking my food, at the beginning did not weigh it. When I started I never read the label because I did not want to know what a serving size really was. Thank you for making me think about those things and how far I have improved. Feel free to check out my newest blog!

    My foolish mistake? Not trusting the system. I signed up for Spark about 5 ago AFTER having lost over 100 pounds. I became so overwhelmed by everything...articles, tools, the wheel, message boards...that I just gave up and ran away. If only I had taken the time to explore, ask questions or READ what to do, like you stated, I would have realized what a great free resource this is sooner!

    LOL Loved your blog today! I have done so many foolish things I've lost count. The biggest mistake was to stop loving myself. Now I've got 50 pounds of too much me to lose. Glad I got back on track with that! Yay Sparkfriends!

    When I started overeating I stopped tracking, and turned a blind eye to the tracker. That was my most foolish thing I did.
