My Spark Punishment...

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

It is no secret that I just love Spark People. I love my Spark friends, I love the tools, I love the motivation, I love it all! I also enjoy blogging, that's probably why I have an excessive amount of them. emoticon I have been super off track lately, I have been honest and accountable about it... I have a had a reality check, a long hard talk to myself, I've done it all. I am aware that I'm in "all talk and no action mode"... but I just keep doing it.

So I thought to myself today I need some sort of punishment or consequence to being off track! Feeling my pants get a little tight should be punishment enough, but apparently it wasn't. So I decided that I needed a time out from Spark.

Now before you think you are getting rid of me, let me explain. My Spark time out is in reference to being able to blog. I really do enjoy it, and I've decided that I can not blog til I am back on track! To make sure that I am fully on track and not just having one good day, I need to have 5 days in my calorie range, tracking and measuring all food, exercising and getting in all my water. More importantly it must be 5 days in a row, not total. So with each slip up I will have to start over. The way I've been going I might not be able to blog for a month. But it was the only thing I could think of as a punishment.

I would never give up Spark in it's entirety because me getting back on track relies heavily on Spark. I need the nutrition and fitness trackers, and I need to be able to read other Spark Friends blogs and progress because that is where I get so much motivation! All of you continue to inspire me and remind me what is important! So there you have it... what could be my last blog of 2013 IF I don't get my act together. I wish you all nothing but continued success and a very happy holiday season! To all my US Spark Friends, I hope you have an amazing Thanksgiving! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    If everyone on Spark who is consistently slipping up, including me right now, stopped blogging like you mentioned, there would be very few bloggers at this time. Think about that.

    As to punishment, facing your fears, your guilt, your shame and blogging about it would probably be the best medicine. But, hey, that's just an opinion from a stranger who doesn't know squat, right?

    Do what you do, but realize the consequences of your absence my dear.
