Send Yourself A Text Message!

This Sparked Me!

I schedule exercises in my SP appointment book and then I use the REMINDER option to have a text message arrive an hour or two before I need to get the exercises done. (Look at "MORE" to find out how to do this. ) I also send myself a motivation message the same way :)

If you have never sent yourself a text message from the internet, for Verizon, the "address" is your entire verizon phone number PLUS "" Example:" You have to find out what your carrier "SMS" address is, if you do not have verizon.

    Great tip! I used to let Monday afternoon 1:1s with my boss irritate me all evening. Now I have a walking appointment with a SparkPal 30 minutes after the 1:1. I set a reminder half an hour before and immediately after the 1:1. The first one reminds me I have a healthy activity to look forward to with a supportive friend, and the second one helps me make sure the meeting ends on time.

    What an AWESOME idea! I didn't even know we had this function.
I am SO going to do this for a lot of things!

    I have found a program through Amyway called "Slim Living" it
really has worked well for me along with reading the wonderful
Spark messages and the good Pastor's challenges.
So far I have lost 47lbs and have 13 more to go to my goal.
