Always Looking for the Sweet Spot (and I don't mean the donut shop)
Wednesday, May 04, 2016
Sometimes I get really tired of logging every little thing. Logging my daily food and exercise isn't so bad because of all the nifty electronic trackers. But last month I was completely overwhelmed by the tracking at my gym and on my sparkteams that I had to take a step away from the computer. Don't get me wrong ... I am encouraged to see what and how much I am doing to move toward my goals and I love the support. But when I started feeling like I had to play catch up during computer time rather than reading articles, blogs or checking in on friends it took the fun out of it.
When I think about it, this fits into my other struggles, balance. I have been working on finding the right balance of foods to keep me satisfied. I am finding my sweet spot of exercise that is working to change my body. And too, I am struggling to find the right amount of time to spend on the computer versus all the other activities that I want or need to do each day.
What works for me might not work for someone else. We all have different priorities and those may change on a daily basis. Juggling life's daily needs requires us to find balance and flexibility and the awareness that every new day may require a new tweak.
