Busy busy. Too much time sparking

Saturday, July 02, 2011

I realized last week that I'm spending too much time on this website. I was really getting wrapped up in accumulating spark points! This week I had a lot going on getting our boys ready to go off to a church retreat in Pennsylvania so I didn't follow through on my team challenges and goals. I have decided to focus on tracking my weight and fitness and 3 team challenges. I also want to spend my time encouraging spark friends and spark team members. My month started with no fitness activity (we were in our car driving from 5:00 am until 8:00 pm) but my fitness goals will stay the same and I'll be sure to make up for yesterdays inactivity. Good luck to everyone this July!

    So many sparkpeeps say this- are you neglecting other areas of your life- like fitness. for example?
    I'm here a lot- maybe 2 hours a day in 20-30 min snatches- but I work out every day- clean my house - work part time- -shop for and cook healthy meals- rarely watch tv.
    See what I mean?
    Spark on!

    I have the same issue - I usually spend between 30-60 minutes every day. I felt better about it when one of my friends said "that's your farmville though". It's so true!!! I don't play any internet games, so the time I spend her is time I would probably spend on games that others play. This way I'm not just wasting time, I'm also increasing my healthy knowledge!

    I like how you refocused and created goals for the website to make it valuable to you!
