Ah, The New Year's Wave!

Friday, January 24, 2014

So everyone has good intentions on Jan 1! The wave sweeps SparkPeople like a tsunami! I want to see eveyone of you still here on Jan 1, 2015! In fact, I challenge you and hope you never forget that challenge!
emoticon

So this is for all the newest SparkPeople AND those that have been "plateauing" for the last few years!
emoticon

TWO WORDS
PATIENCE! It won't happen over night!
PERSEVERENCE! Stay with it! The easiest way is to just embrace a healthy lifestyle and let nature help YOUR effort on the journey to realizing your dreams and goals!
emoticon

I admit that it took me about 1 1/2 months to get into Sparking regularly! To date, I have only one SparkStreak! I have logged in 1186 days in a row. Every one of those days, I have used the SparkPoints list as my daily checklist. I do the essentials first thing in the morning. The rest is logged as the day progresses. Start out by doing a little a day. Soon, it will be second nature. Then you will start doing items you hadn't "seen." Eventually, you will own SparkPoints...BIG TIME!
emoticon

Don't try to grasp straws and look for an easy way to get there. There are bumps in the road. Face them, champion them, and move forward! ( Believe me, sometimes I think I've hit every single one of them!) This is a life journey! Live it!
emoticon

I wasted 40 years of my life! It took me less that 5 months to change it all and be on the journey to a healthy lifestyle. I want everyone to experience that same joy. Abuse all of us that are walking the walk! You are never alone and we want to share our experiences with you! Everyone starts on the same line! It's also more fun when everyone is at the party!
emoticon

Stay strong, stay focused, be well, and much love to all!

Currently working on the sign in spark streak...though that should be the easy one for me, since I sign in every day to start the board. emoticon

    LOL! "Frozen". I hear you! But start with 10 minutes a day, even inside! Coach Nichole has some great 10 minute cardio videos right here on Spark People! Monty I will never catch you on that streak!

    emoticon Great streak!

emoticon I could not agree more. Do not let the bumps in the road, major road blocks. Build on all the little successes that occur day in and day out.

    Good advice. And I intend to follow it as soon as I can escape the cold North. I am starting to feel like a scene from the movie, "Frozen".
