I think I'm addicted...

Sunday, October 28, 2012

I have been a member of Sparkpeople since 2006. This past year, I have really committed to it and have started using the site like many people use Facebook. I made the decision that if I am going to be online doing social networking, that this site would be just as appropriate as others.

I'm loving the articles I read, the workouts I learn, and the people on here. I'm also becoming addicted to tracking my foods, my workouts, getting my points and what not. I actually research, yes RESEARCH, my workouts and eating habits. I plan my workouts in journals the night before and compare the anticipated calorie burn to my meal plan for the day. Then I actually do the math, do I need to work out more, tweak my calories, and so forth.

I'm also using these tools with my family and they are getting on board. My 17 year old niece is going to the gym with me and sticking it out. She's trying new things and asking questions about how to eat better (not just dieting, but what foods are better to eat than others).

I look forward to the gym each day, have better confidence when the day starts because I know what I can eat (therefore I don't give in to temptation), and I feel good throughout the whole day. I even look forward to my pre-bedtime ritual of sitting down with a glass of water and planning the next day.

Perhaps, the next move for this site is a sparkpeople 12 step?

    I "LIKE" this!! I actually decided today on my drive home from a hiking vacation that I was going to start spending more time on Spark than Facebook :) Great minds think alike!
