I'm starting to see how the spark streaks can really be an effective tool... Today I woke up thinking "I've been good for a while... what if I just fudge a bit?" Thankfully, the VERY loud internal response was "NO WAY!" I've worked hard and I'll keep working hard. Besides, the more days I add to my streak, the easier it gets to (a) learn my patterns and (b) fix the problems.
We went sledding today at the best little hill in town, which happens to be about 6 blocks away from my house. As we walked home from the hill, tired, hungry, and happy, I pulled both boys behind me (the roads aren't really plowed around here). I figured "let's just keep up the exercise!" I knew how much I wanted to eat for lunch because I'd already tracked my breakfast and snack.
I'm looking forward to the personal challenge of keeping this streak up: I'd like to make it the rest of the week having "good" days. Not so hard, right? I'm half way there!
