So last week (well, half of it) was my first week back on Spark. I have decided it's way beyond time for me to get back on track. It's been a tough summer. My thyroid has blown out of control; my diabetes has blown out of control and my arthritis has blown out of control. Now mind you, I've stayed active, been eating right so I really don't know what's caused everything to go haywire. Just my weird genetically flawed body playing tricks with me once again. I had to have surgery on my face last week to have a growth removed and have been dealing with stitches down the side of my face...... just been a tough summer. So last week I decided I would get back on track with Spark. Well I kind of failed at that too.
I got on Spark; that was about it. I didn't eat well; I didn't exercise like I should and I didn't track like I should. So I don't consider that I really got back on Spark. Spark can do SO much more for me than just giving me Spark points and goodies! Spark can help keep me on track; help me to be healthy; help me to be fit. It can encourage me to eat right and exercise; above all it can help me to be healthy. And that's what I need!
The good news is, I guess, when I got on the scale this morning I hadn't gained an ounce. Not one. Schewwww! Dodged that bullet. Now granted, I didn't lose an ounce, but at least nothing came on. So for that I'm grateful.
So now, today, in this pouring rain (yet again) I will work hard this week to use Spark for it's intended purpose. To track and eat right; to get in those fitness minutes and to feel good this time next week when I get on the scale!!!
