So February is a hard month. The winter simply takes extra work to follow your habits of maintenance. Shopping, exercise,driving are often more difficult in the cold and icy roads.
The overcast days led me to turn to music, flowers, bright colors and trying new recipes.
I decided to try the Spark Activity Tracker as a way to increase my exercise and for a little fun in motivation. It works for me. It is fun to see your steps tracked and graphed. The virtual trophies are also nice.
The funny part about this is that my husband and my son do not understand why I am doing this. My husband jokingly said it was somewhat obsessional. Well this obsession has led me to exercise beyond what I normally do. After working out at the gym I came home and discovered that I was a number of steps away from my goal..so I walked some more! I also walk as I talk on the phone.
It is motivating to me to look down at my shoes and to have that Spark Tracker with me all day.I feel like I am doing something healthy for myself. It adds a Spark to my steps!
I am secure in this weight journey and will continue to do what I need to do to stay on track. Husbands can and do get used to my new healthy habits!
I admit it is comical to wear tennis shoes with my pajamas the first thing in the morning as my tracker is on shoes.
Thanks to all you at Spark for your support. These last winter months have been warmed by the lovely kind posts here!
