So here it is August 1st! I find it hard to believe that summer is half over, and that I've been Sparking for three whole months now! Progress has been . . . well, inconsistent. So much coming and going, during the summer, when I couldn't access my Spark account; so many "special events" and holidays, birthdays and outings that all involved high-calorie foods . . . . But also so many opportunities to get outside and enjoy the nice weather and different, fun types of exercise! And so much farm-fresh produce to enjoy!
So today, the beginning of a new month, my goal is to take a fresh grasp on my life, and get consistent about doing what I know I need to be doing. The motivation isn't hard, this time of year, especially with all the positive energy and support of the Spark community! But what's hard is consistently finding time to exercise, eat right, drink my water, and track it all daily! So my goal for the month is simple: see how long I can make my streaks in each of those areas. At least 20 minutes of exercise each day, tracking my food each day, drinking and tracking the water each day. I know if I am consistent, I'll see good results! So to make it more fun, I've decided to reward myself at the end of the month with a trip to the mall for some just-for-fun luxury items, if I can keep my streaks going all month! Wish me luck!
