I've been thinking about the first time I started spark and when I fell off of it about a year later. We had many changes in that year... We bough a new house and moved so I was too busy for it.... (just another excuse).
However even though I quit sparking I kept of few of the habits I learned the first time around. Like eating breakfast before I joined spark I never ate breakfast except on saturday when I make pancakes, eggs, and bacon for the kids. Thanks to spark I stated eating good healthy breakfasts everyday. Also from the first round I learned to read labels so even though I was not keeping track of what I ate I had learned to be aware of what I am eating.
I guess my point is because of the small steps I had previously taken it is now making it easier to stick with my spark goals this time around. I dont have to think about breakfast and labels so I can now focus in on tracking my food, excercising for 10 minutes and drinking my 8 glasses of water. I've been sparking since the first and I have lost 5 pouns so far and it is this that is helping me to keep sparking.
So if you gave up or are struggling focus in on one small step at a time. I think my failure last time was do to me trying to do it all at once. Keep up the spark. WE can do this together....
