I have just realized something that I am shocked I was unaware of before that SparkPeople is actually like a game. This became apparent to me after I received my copy of The Spark. In it there is a page to log in and get 500 sparkpoints, then as you read you can get more points. I then began exploring and found out that there are lots of ways to get sparkpoints. The competitive side in me emerged and I am now determined to get as many points as possible. In turn I am finding motivation to follow the program. Not to mention I am loving The Spark I wish I would have thought to read it sooner. My biggest AH HA moment. I need to start small. So yesterday I decided to take my dog for a walk, I have been doing this sporadically but always assumed it wasn't enough. My planned 10 minute walk ended in a 20 minute walk simply because we lost track of time. Unfortunately, when I got home there was Panera waiting for me so I think my walk and dinner canceled each other out
All this to say I think I am ready to get back in the swing of things and work on getting myself to a healthier, happier me.
