Going on a SparkDiet

Sunday, May 27, 2012

I enjoy using a bit too much - reading and commenting on blogs, writing blogs and receiving feedback, earning SparkPoints, etc. I especially love interacting with my SparkFriends. I need to cut down on the amount of time I spend on the computer. Even as I'm writing this, I feel like trying to find a great picture to add to this blog, but I won't. It's not the best use of my time right now.

I need to take a SparkBreak. I think that by pulling back, I'll be better able to determine which SparkTools to use, and which ones not to use.

I wish you success in reaching your health and fitness goals! emoticon

    Understand completely. Doing is more important than documenting. As I was riding my bike yesterday, I thought about what I would blog, and the need to *do* to have things to write about struck me as one reason blogging works. If I'm not *doing* anything, I have nothing to write about.

However, if I need to *do* more, sometimes it means I must write less. And that's OK. Real life trumps the on-line... every time. Live it. With blessings!

    I sure understand what you are saying here. On my vacation, I actually broke my addiction to getting a certain number of spark points a day. Now, I log in, play trivia, and a little more. But the compulsion is gone. A real relief.

    I'm thinking I need to start setting a timer....ironically, experts say one of the reasons our society is becoming fat is because we spend too much time behind the computer....

    It is easy to get caught up and lose track of time. I wish you the best and hope you find what works best for you!

    Oh boy ! That is so easy to have happen. Take a break and return when you are ready! Balance is an elusive thing to find at times!

    It sure is easy to get caught up in it so you do need a break for sure. I have burnt many a midnight hour trying to catch up on people's blogs as they all seem to post them in my late evening hours, but that isn't helping my insomnia any. This website is as addictive as any TV show or games you might play. So enjoy your freedom and do more things that are healthy and active, so then later on we can read your success blog of how you lost all the weight you wanted to ;)
Will miss you! Like I tell my Spark friends, I don't care if you comment on my feed or blogs, I just do those for points. I am here to see how my friends are doing in their journeys..

    Understand as I had to do that about a month ago -- took a whole month off. Now, I don't do as much -it is helpful to back off.

Enjoy you and your time!
