Lost in Cyberspace

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

No, not me - my blog. Once again I wrote my blog and it disappeared, not to be found. It can be discouraging to think, create and type, only to lose it to cyberspace. I lost my gumption and could not bring myself to try again. So I spent time on the site looking around and reading, catching updates. I feel better now so will try again. I see that Spark is going to connect activity and nutrition, similar to what Fitbit does. I haven't decided if I will take that option or not. The fact that you can't change your mind and go back has me stymied. What if I don't like it? What if it is different than Fitbit? Maybe I don't need to bother at all - just use my Fitbit and come her for motivation, support and community.

What do you think folks? I'm not into entering everything twice, it's tough enough to get it all into one system, two programs is not how I choose to spend my day. I have syned my Fitbit with Spark but will that be activity only?

My first week with my Fitibt was the week I taught Vacation bible school. My mileage, steps and activity levels were very high. The next week was a normal week and my numbers were still pretty good. This week I spent 4 days at our cabin up north and my numbers were much lower. So I have some catching up to do. Tomorrow will be good for that as I am caring for two of my grandchildren, ages 3 and 2. That should do it. emoticon

I have been a lousy Sparker this year. I like supporting others but feel I have so little to say about my own program. I would like to blog at least once a week, I'll work on that. The rest of my program has been pretty darned good so it's not like I'm running away. What is my problem with blogging? Been there and done that? Loss of our core group?

Thanks for listening.

    I know what you mean.... It seems that many of my SP friends are mia. While I miss them, I realize that stuff always changes, as do we. We all evolve, our lives change, our needs change.

    I hear you about the logging , tedious, but think about what would serve you and your goals best. Doing both would be a PITA. Would the new method serve you better? Ultimately only you can tell what is best for you. Whatever you choose, I know you will be amazing at it.

    Always great to hear from you, BLW! Sometimes when my internet is running slowly (or my computer is acting weirdly) I'll write my blog, then COPY IT in case when I press the "post" button it goes into never-never-land. That way I can open the blog window and just paste it in. Another idea would be to write it in Word and then copy & paste into the blog window. I know what you mean -- the second try never seems as good or heartfelt as the first!

    I know a lot of our "core group" has come and gone (me at times, too), so I've reached out and gotten more people into my "core." Every new person I interact with adds something to my program. I still have 15 pounds to lose and have re-committed to losing them in 2013. It's not over until I WIN!

    I have not heard about Spark connecting nutrition with activity...can you tell me where to find the article?
