Wandering Thoughts

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

I think I'm just winter-weary, but I am also assessing my fitness/nutrition/Sparking program.

My primary care physician told me last week that anyone who had lost weight during this winter-that-seems-to-never-end is doing VERY well. Of course, I liked that, because I showed a 4# loss since I had seen her back in January. emoticon

I am trying to find a happy place for the time that I spend Sparking, and I am not sure just how that needs to be done. The teams that I have joined have all been for one purpose or another, and those purposes haven't changed. Perhaps I need to focus on two or three, and then check in with the others occasionally, or perhaps if I have already delegated them to not being my primary focus already, I just need to delete them in the first place.

I find that I am going through much the same thought process in other areas of my life. If I haven't used it in 2?3?5? years, perhaps I never will. Why am I allowing it to take up space?

So these are my thoughts today - I don't know that they are necessarily good, bad, etc - just my thoughts today.

    I go through my teams quite often, and delete the ones I don't visit very often or don't feel especially supported at. They truly do get to be too much.

    Tammy, I agree with you totally!! I am doing the same thing. I'm cutting back on the SP time, computer time, and devoting more time to me and what I want to do. It's not easy but I've had to let go.

My doc told me the same thing as I had gained when I went in. But since I've lost it. It is so hard to keep a balance.

Be good to yourself first!! My new mantra!! emoticon

    Tammy, I've been spending less time online in the last couple of weeks and then struggling to catch up on my teams. I only look at FB every other day, which has gotten easier to let go :)

When BLC ends I'm taking a break and just staying active on two teams - naturally the RV team is one! emoticon

    I have learned over the years to eliminate some of my teams. I still spend probably too much time Sparking but it's a better balance.

    I find that any kind of clutter (stuff, time or mental/emotional) just distracts me from my real priorities. I think it's a great exercise to clean it all up on a regular basis.

emoticon And the doc is right - good from you losing the pounds.

You can get rid of your teams but you are stuck with me. Bwaa haha haha ! Just don't leave altogether. I want to see you do your walking goals You area already at or near your goal so losing 4 # is awesome ! It is good to spring clean and get rid of the things we are not using. Every time I do that, I regret it when someone needs something I had but got rid of. LOL !! We do need that change once in awhile. It renews us and frees us for better things. TC

    I hold onto things I have not used for years too. I am trying to break that habit, not easy to do. I want to get rid of it all in a yard sale but for me that is a lot easier said than done.
I hope you find your happy place on Sparks.
Congratulations on the Weight Loss!!!!!!!!
