Having a hard time drinking all your water?

I have tried keeping a 32 oz cup full of water and drinking two of those during the day but failed. Now I just drink one 8 oz cup of water every hour all day long. It works for me!

I am terrible about this. Trying to stay on track can be hard when you forget the healthy lunch you packed and get stuck with the vending machine. Had to fix that! So I thought to put my CAR KEYS in my lunchbag. Haven't forgotten since!

Falling off track

I have seen a lot of sparkpals disappear when they fall off track, never to be seen again. I have had a rough week but I still keep coming here every day and it helps. Don't quit sparking when you start to slip. Keep coming back and keep tracking yourself. You'll be back on track before you know

Clean ceiling fans easily!

An easy way to clean the ceiling fan is to cover your hands in a pair of old socks. Dip them in warm sudsy water and run your hand over top and bottom of each blade. Next time you clean the blades to your ceiling fan apply a thin coat of floor wax to them. It will keep future dust from clinging!!
