The virtual world is so educational, but it is also very fun. That is the reason so many of us are couch potatoes now. Sparkpeople is a dream answer for many of us. Hey we are on line anyway, right? But then we discovered that there are no gimmicky, easy answers on the spark site. They don't even offer a magic pill, super drink, starvation diet, phew. They want us to get up and move, play, interact,exercise, run, walk, ring around the Rosie. WHAT ? I am stunned. No one has mentioned exercise to me unless they were trying to sign me up for a fancy gym membership, in twenty years. But, against our better judgement we decide to try this. We have tried everything else, and here we are. So we get busy moving. Some of us faster than others. Some walk, some run some do sitting exercises, aerobic, yoga, some do several things, but suddenly we are all headed in the same direction. And up ahead their is a road sign that says "RIGHT DIRECTION". Eureka. Then we notice changes. They are small changes at first, but just like the snowball, the changes get better as they gather momentum. We are winning. No. We are winners. Now, I as m sorry, but I need to take my speed walk and I have a dozen people to text about the new me. Then I have to work on getting to the next level in Candy Crush. I never said Sparking would change everything.
