I struggle with balance in all things. It is hard to balance work and family, cravings with good food choices, exercise with my busy schedule.
I guess it shouldn't be a surprise then, that I struggle with knowing how much time to spend on SP as well. I do know that when I spend time here connecting with my sparkfriends, I do better health-wise. Right now, I'm about three pounds over my goal weight for about the third time in a few months. It seems either I'm here so often I feel pressured for time, but I'm at (or below) goal, or I'm not on the site at all and I start to gain.
I'm looking for advice. I see many of my sparkfriends adding new friends, and I have actually avoided posting blogs because I feel I can barely keep up with the friends I have! I really think it is important to reply to people when they comment or post, and so I'm afraid to take on more, but I also want to participate fully and help others as well as myself.
In short, I'm trying for balance.
How do you guys do it? Many of you have WAAAAY more sparkfriends than me - how do you keep up? I'd love your thoughts and advice.
P.S. Yes, I do recognize the irony in asking you to post more when I'm trying to figure out how to post a reasonable amount myself, but yeah, I'm doing it anyway.
