Some very special friends gave me a pep talk and a kick in the butt today! Sometimes the answer is so simple, but I can't see it. As we say in the South, "If it would have been a snake, it would've bit me!"
The answer? Spark in the evening.
In the past, I always sparked in the morning. Now, due to several things I won't mention because it's really not important---I find it difficult to settle down at the computer in the morning. I was trying to make myself, but...I didn't and I continued feeling horrible, not doing the program, and gaining weight. As I related all of this to my friends, someone said--"Spark in the evening!" To me, it was so profound! The absolute worst time of the day for me and cravings is after dark, which is early here. We had decided that I eat because I'm bored. Sparking in the evening keeps me busy, keeps all the ideas and motivation in my face when I need it most!
