Been on and off again for some years. A comment I read from another Sparker recently Sparked me into action--well some action, anyways! I tend to get lazy and hopeless, so I am trying really hard to stay Sparked!

My Goals:
I am a Rowdy Rebel, who won't settle!, in the first 5% challenge of 2020, so I am setting my goal to loose 5% of my weight in the weeks of the challenge. For 2020, I will continue with my 3 three simple, BUT achievable goals: 1. Do Something, Anything! 2. Track everyday. 3. Exercise at least 10 min daily.


My Program:
I've been drifting along making tiny changes each week...do something, anything. Do s, a for 5 min. Do s, a for 10 min--which is now pretty consistent and more than 10 most days. Log my food. Log my exercise. Got very good tracking, but couldn't for 2 days, so it doesn't look very long of a spark. Next week, get that water up there will be the key. Planning my food better will be the following week. Figuring amount of food intake to meet my goal will be the third week. 2020. Focus on DIFERENTIAL--Its the key that unlocks the weight loss door!



Personal Information:
Married for many years, retired, all the kids have families of their own so I am blessed with many grandchildren!


Other Information:
3-22-19. Disappointed in myself that I did not meet my 5% challenge. Lost a bit, gained a bit and pretty much evened off. Fighting off that disgusted negative self talk that accompanies a non successful attempt. On the upside, though, when I'm looking up, haha, is that I've established a habbit of excercise EVERY day again, that I am still tracking everyday, that I still know that IF I follow the spark program, I will be successful despite myself! And, I like the challenge, and competing in it, so I will continue to do that for sure. The solution is out there---I just need to apply it, or apply myself to it!
6/1/2019. Well, again did not reach 5% goal---BUT I did lose 6 pounds, and I am excersing every day without fail, & I am tracking every day without fail. I decided at the beginning of 2019 to do those 2 things--and I think this is the 1st time EVER I've still been doing in June what I vowed to do in Dec! Go, me!
9/7/19. Did not make 5%, but am down 5 more pounds, excercise ev
