I had a 1,162 day login streak spinning the SparkPeople wheel. That's more than 3 years of faithfully coming here every day. Well that streak is over. Was it because I forgot to log on? Was my Internet service down? Did I not have access to a computer? Nope!! I was here recording my food and exercise, reading e-mails, and even earned enough points to get a bonus spin. I just didn't notice that I didn't do the initial login spin! Don't know how it slipped my mind, because that's usually the first thing I do. So when I logged on the next morning, I was surprised (and heartbroken) to see "You have a 1-day streak. Your longest streak was 1,162." It's really even more disheartening because I was on SparkPeople the day the streak ended, so it's not like I wasn't here.
But I'm not going to let this get me down because I knew that one day the streak would end (I secretly hoped it would be the day I die LOL!!), but the irony in this is that the streak ended on my birth month and year! Yep, 11/62. Now how's that for some good Karma? Maybe it's good because I can login and see my birthday every day and know that I now have a new goal -- to continue to come here everyday and vow to pass this streak.
I'll have to revist this post in 2017 to see if it happens.
