I like being on SP so much that sometimes I sort of lose the plot a bit. The plot is not:
- make loads of lovely SparkFriends
- get enough SparkPoints to get to the next level
- write witty or interesting blogs and decorate with photos in the hope of winning a popular blog post
No indeed. The above are all delightful by-products, especially the first. They are the nice things that happen on the way, a bit like going on holiday somewhere warm and sunny and coming home with a tan and three bottles of sangria. The point of the holiday is to relax. If you get a tan and some booze at the same time, that's great, but getting the tan and the booze aren't any good if you spend your holiday being stressed out and having rows with your OH.
Similar with SparkPeople. I need to refocus myself a bit. Today I'm not tracking nutrition or exercise because there isn't a 'Don't ask' button on either tracker and trust me, I don't want anyone asking.
However here I am, hanging out on the SparkCorner with the guys and gals, and writing a blog. What I should be doing is getting down the gym. But I've had one of THOSE weeks and I really don't feel like it.
Tomorrow is another SparkDay. I'll be looking for a new leaf to turn over.
Please form an orderly queue to kick my butt. It needs it.
