My 3 FastBreak Stage Goals
Tuesday, June 03, 2014
So recently, I've decided to give SparkPeople a true try. Over thee last few years I have been not done well. I wonder if the program works. Whenever I wonder if something really works or not, I choose to follow it. By its own defintion, both in letter and in Spirit
So I am now doing the SparkDiet and reading the book "The Spark" by SP founder Chris Downie. I am also going through the new member welcome guide.
As I read the book this week, I am reading the chapter on The Cornerstone: Focus. The chapter that focuses on purpose, core values and motivation.
For the SparkDiet, I have picked the following 3 FB goals
Tracking calories: This was always something that I shied away from. I ate too much to track when I first started. The tracker was not very user friendly. Now I find it very easy and my eating is such that it is easily trackable.
Tracking is the one thing the SparkPeople have most consistently sworn by and I have most consistently shirked. So let's see if it helps.
10 minutes of exercise per day: 10 minutes is not the challenge. It's the consistency of it. ON the site it talked about streaks that involve not missing a day (with an ambiguous, but if you miss a day). The book's version of the diet talks about 5-7 times per week. That's what I am striving for.
Read from an inspiring book: I'm reading the Spark. It's making me think. The focus section is encouraging me to put together a plan and clearly state my motivation. I plan to blog about this mid next week.
I'm reading the chapter over and over again at this point, because I seem to notice something new each time. I'm going to write down my core values and corresponding long term goals (with short term building blocks) and see what comes of it.
Again, I'm not just going through the motion. I want this to transform my life beyond, "Wow this sounds like a good idea.
So we continue.
