An award for me? Really?!

Tuesday, February 09, 2010

Well apparently I was on SP enough in the month of January that I received an award for it! I can't even believe that. I saw in my email that I had received an award from SP and I was a bit shocked. I was thinking "what in the world would I be getting an award for?". Well now I know. I commented, tracked, spun the wheel, read articles and all that and I received an award. It feels good to be rewarded for doing something that I want and need to do. Yes, usually our reward is seeing our pants fit better (heck even fall off!) or being able to walk up a flight of stairs without being out of breath, or being able to do a pushup or what have you, but sometimes those rewards don't come as fast as we need them. Sometimes we hit that place where those pants just don't seem to fall off, and we just can't quite get that push up. We try and try and try some more and the real rewards we are looking for are just out of our grasp, but then we log onto SparkPeople and we see goodies our friends gave us, posts on all our different teams of encouragement and we know that there are other friends that are there to help us and who are going through the same thing. So when I get an "extra" award for just logging on and being here it makes me feel good and makes me want to keep going and do even better. Amazing how one little picture on one little page can be such a huge thing. emoticon

    I know the feeling of happiness when the rewards come in the mail, I love that feeling. It is so silly to get so happy about it, but I do. And it is a huge motivator for me to try to get as many sparkpoints as I can possibly get each day (without cheating, I have to EARN every point). It makes me really annoyed on the days when I am too lazy to work out, I know it will set my points total back a lot.
    Silly but effective way of staying motivated.

    Keep up the good work and keep logging in and spinning the wheel!
