No matter what's going on, whether you're on plan, or way off track, keep logging in to Spark no matter what. If you're off track, it will keep you mindful and eventually your connection will pull you back in, and get you taking care of you again. Never give up!
When I'm lacking motivation, I ask for support in a status, a blog, or a message board post. Yesterday I requested a kick in the pants to get outside and moving, and my Spark Friends were right there, urging me out the door. On Spark People, if you ask, you shall receive.
