Starting a new 78 day Spark Streak! Why 78 days you ask?

The First Day of Summer (Summer Solstice) 2013

My new Spark Friend TRIANGLE-WOMAN suggested that it's possible I might be just exchanging one obsession (scale watching) for another (measuring tape watching). Even if I don't measure every week, I would still risk disappointment at the monthly measure in, so I've decided to take her sage advice and focus on other goals instead.

Goal #1) Do Not step on a scale, drive over a truck scale or even lean too heavily on the produce scale at the market until the Summer Solstice.

Goal #2) Do Not put a tape measure around my waist, thighs, bat wings.. er biceps, ahem, the "girls", the badonkadonk and most especially no tapes, cords, ropes or ligaments of any kind around my neck until the Summer Solstice.

Goal #3) Track, track, track, track, track, track, and did I mention track?

Goal #4) Quit sitting on my tuckus and move it around, for at least 30 mins a day or until I get bored whichever comes last.

Goal #5) Drink so much water I have to check for sinkholes in my yard on a daily basis.

There, that should do it and keep that crazy woman off my back, you know she's a Sparkaholic right?

    LOL! I love this blog. #1 still has me smiling. You have a fabulous sense of humor! I adore that.

I can relate to the obsession. The scale mocks my ritual...pee, strip, exhale both ends if possible and step up. Yeah...that kind of needs to stop.

I am focusing on water so much I feel a tad bit of guilt when there is a tremor where I live. Everyone else thinks it's the Fracking being done for Natural Gas, but we know otherwise, yes? Sinkholes. *nods*

Good luck with your goals and watch out cause you've just been friended. ;)

    Ha! I get too obsessed with the scale when I'm losing weight then avoid it like the plague when I'm gaining. Good luck!

Keep your spirits up! Keep blogging.

The goal is for this to be a lifetime thing!

Starting with 78 days is a great start to the rest of your life! Pace yourself.

Each of of those 78 days will come one day at a time....
