Spread The Streak

Monday, July 08, 2013

Recently I checked out The Spark from the library. All I can say is WOW! I had NO idea where SparkPeople started. Well, I knew it was created by Spark Guy, but other than that, I didn't know where the inspiration came from.

I've been floundering with this site for a few years now. I'm finally at a point now where I'm actually using the site and learning new things about it all the time. Some things about this site absolutely amaze me with the information I gain. Others inspire me, like Spark Streaks.

SparkPeople started from streaks. He was all about his streaks and this extremely shy man started telling others about his streaks and the spark was spread.

My longest streak for simply logging in is 17 days. My current streak is 4 days...I forgot to spin the wheel on the 4th even though I was on the site...I remembered about spinning the wheel at 12:15 Friday morning. emoticon

The streaks aren't just about getting points. The streaks show you how far you've come. I never would have cared what I ate a few months ago. Now I've been tracking my food every day for more than a month. It shows me not only where I need to work on my menu to get healthier, but also helps me in determining where pain is coming from (most of the pain in my body is food related).

This site has helped so many, but mostly it is helping me! I can't help but tell others about it. So, help your friends and family. Spread the Spark and join with them in challenges towards a healthier lifestyle.
