Spark - Book

Spark Book and Daily Reflections

I bought the Spark awhile ago. I actually have a real copy and a copy on my phone. Today, I discovered the book - bonus site and it motivated me to actually read and maybe apply some of the things I am learning from it.

I decided to try to recruit a few people to read the Spark Book with me in-person. I am really hoping this will work out. A few members from the Utah Spark Team and a few friends I know that want to get going on Spark-People. Have any of you read the book or met up with fellow Spark-Buddies in your community? I would love to hear your experiences with both.


Almost done with Day 4 Binge Free. SO *EXCITED* about this. I am so HOPEFUL that this is the LAST time I have to start again. But, I am also a realist a know it might happen again, and I am prepared to ask for forgiveness and get back on my feet ASAP. For now, definitely focused on the positive. 4 DAYS Binge free and eating healthy, exercising, and feeling great.

What worked today:

Going down to the basement to journal, read, and stretch. I am okay with going to OA meetings, but I am definitely looking for other things too.

Ran 4 miles on the treadmill today and felt great.

Hoping for another solid day tomorrow. I go back to work as a teacher. First real day back since Dec. 21. I taught 3 students last week from 8:30-11:30 and that was really fun. But, tomorrow all 29 will be back all-day long. LOVE IT!!! I have the best job in the universe.

Hope all my Spark-Buddies had a wonderful day too.

    I do not have the book, but one of the team's I am in meets twice a week to walk together. Some also participate in organized (like 5/10k ) walks/runs. It is great! The team is incredibly supportive and is a nice push to get moving.

    I'm jealous that you love your job!!! That is a wonderful thing!

I have the Spark book, and I have met Sparkers IRL. It is great - one lives about 60 miles from me and we have traveled to out of town races together, done a 100 mile relay together (with 4 other people) and she has spent the night before a race. There is another one who lives about 30 minutes away and we have met up before races as well. I have also met other Sparkers in big groups after races. A lot of fun to put the face with the name, especially since a lot of them know your deepest darkest secrets! It's like an instant bond!

    Good luck with your book club - maybe come prepared with some questions in case the discussion stalls. And congrats on being binge free, I know how difficult that can be.

    I haven't read the Spark with a book club, but as with most things, it's the doing that counts.

Bless you for being a teacher. My daughter has her first graders and is working hard. Shape those minds!
