Take A Break From Tracking, Once In A While

This Sparked Me!

Sometimes you get 'burned out' from being obsessive about tracking food, answering questions and earning points every day--give it all a rest for one day and see how refreshed you feel when you get back to it!

    I agree. At times I get too obsessive about accumulating points and I spend hours in SPark. That is time that I don't have so when I get too upset that I could not log in I know that is time to take that break.

    I have too much drama going on in my life to take a break at this point. Knowing my personality and my track record, if I take my "eyes off the prize" days will go by and I will have taken a step or steps backward. I just allow myself to not be perfect every day, but I still track.
