Making Spark work for the new me
Tuesday, May 15, 2012
I joined this site Feb. 6, 2010 obese and clueless. I dropped the weight that year and slowly drifted away. I came back a few times, vowing to be as active as I was but never coming through.
While I'm still on the same account I'm back as a new person. I'm here as someone who has run three marathons and is a Spinning instructor (so, I guess I can sort of call myself a fitness professional!) Maybe I should, maybe I shouldn't have, but I deleted all my old posts, left most of my teams (I'm still on SparkColumbus!) and joined a few new ones.
My weight has fluctuated. I'm now just three pounds over where I was at my skinniest. My goal is to lose those three, and then 10 more, but not at the expense of other goals.
So how can I make Spark work for me?
The biggest change I've faced recently is having to go Gluten Free due to a food intolerance. I joined the Gluten Free SparkTeam, and of course I love the recipes.
I want to be a better Spin instructor! I joined the Spinning enthusiasts SparkTeam and may look for a few more teams for instructors.
I've still been reading the articles. I might as well get the points for them! The resources on this site continue to be invaluable.
I have again vowed to track my food, but sorry Spark, I've defected to My Fitness Pal. It works better for me. I still love you, I promise!
