First Blog

Monday, January 28, 2013

Today was a beautiful day here in Florida. It was Monday so I decided it was time to get back into Sparking. Somewhere in between Thanksgiving and Christmas I got side tracked. I didnít even log into Spark People. So today I started Sparking again.

During my hiatus from Spark, I noticed that my leg muscle pains and joint pains had returned. While I was actively Sparking, I made sure I walked every day (even if it was for only 5 minutes). I made sure every morning I did a set of stretches and watched my calorie counts. I regained 8 pounds during this break from Spark. Iím not very happy about that but Iím glad I didnít gain more. The main goal I have is to feel better and not hurt so much. So today I re-entered the Spark world.

One of the first things I did when I returned to Spark was read some blogs. One of my favorite bloggers wrote a blog about blogging. With her encouraging words I decided to write this, my first blog. Iím kind of amazed that I did because I used all the excuses for not writing that she mentioned in her blog. This is scary, but I will post it.

Happy Monday

Great Blog and Congrats on getting back! Your health is worth the time it takes to spark & blog. I have always stayed away from diet plans that say you have to log your food, everything you put in your mouth, and you have to journal. I thought that was all huey and brushed it off. But when I started Spark I said to myself this experience is going to get my full attention. I made a plan there and then that what ever it takes I will do and make a life change that will last forever. So when I started blogging I thought it was silly but I needed to comply. But I found that it was really cathartic to verbalize anything I felt or was going through here and have the support of others that have gone through the same stuff as me. I love blogging now even though it takes some of my time away it gives me so much more. Heres to wishing you a Great Blogging experience! Susan aka Sparkinator
