I had a thought today.
Scarey, I know!
Then I was reading another SP friends blog, and she made a comment about how she decided not to blog every day because the daily thing just got to be too much, and it resonated with me.
When I come onto SP, and I LOVE Spark People, I can spend anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours updating everything, earning points, logging in my trackers, checking my teams, responding to spark mail, reading articles (and yes, I DO read them!) - even longer if I decide to update my Spark Page!!
On busy days, I resent the amount of time I spend here. The daily checking in.
I wouldn't get the support from friends that I need.
I wouldn't learn the correct way to do my exercises.
I wouldn't know how many calories I was eating every day.
I wouldn't learn about health and wellness.
I wouldn't know how much fitness I was doing daily, weekly, monthly.
I wouldn't be able to give encouragement to other people who need it.
I wouldn't be encouraged to move beyond my "comfort zone".
I wouldn't be pushed to do more.
I wouldn't try new foods, new recipes.
I most likely wouldn't have lost the weight I've already lost.
So, is it really just too much?
NO, I don't think so at all!!
