Day 37: Thanks SparkPeople!!!
Thursday, April 10, 2014
Last week I started my Spark-break because I found myself spending too much time sitting at the computer, mostly Sparking. There's just so much great info here and it's easy to get carried away. Especially the social interactive opportunities - SparkTeams, SparkFriends! Oh my!!
So I decided to step away from the computer for a while. I've been Sparking for a year and a half, I thought I could do it myself. But I'm finding It's hard to keep on track without checking in every day.
Not that I'm going after donuts and candy bars . . . I'm keeping with my good nutrition and fitness plan. . . .
it's just hard to keep it all straight in my head without having it all in front of me at one well organized place.
Just take a look at our start page - it's got everything we need right there!
and then there's the fitness and nutrition trackers . . . I found that without those trackers, I get distracted and lose track of what I've eaten. I've tried to keep a mental calorie count through-out the day . . . only to realize - too late - that I forgot to add this or that . . . which has put me at or over my daily calorie count a couple times.
So, even though I really miss my Sparkfriends, reading all your blogs and keeping up with my team activities, I'm going to stick with the 'social' Spark break, at least for a while. But I'll be checking in and using my nutrition and fitness trackers so I can track more accurately.
After all, I am in this to SUCCEED! And to do that - I need to Spark.
Does that make me a Spark-a-holic????
