Will the Spark site thwart my attempts at behaving? Technology is distracting
Saturday, December 27, 2014
I fell away from my original reason to use Spark; tracking my food. I happily blog and read others' blogs getting great advice, shoulders to cry on and in turn give back.
However, today I jumped back into the Food Tracker with both feet to get that next big grip on myself.
The attack of the flashing commercial banners and video advertisements.
I saw something shiny.
My computer was not happy and neither am I. I have a self-diagnosed Adult Hyper-Activity Attention Deficit Disorder.
Slow. Frozen. Restart.
It became a game.
I typed something, the advertisements moved.
I stopped, they stopped.
I typed faster and they STILL caught up with me or slowed my computer down so much I was ready to throw in the towel.
My laptop is not outdated; my patience is.
In the end, after spending 10 minutes wiping out duplicate foods and finding the ones that didn't get selected when frozen, I ended my day of leftovers in not such bad shape.
I HAVE learned something!
I also learned that if this is how the tracker is going to affect my patience, mood and morning, I may have to find something else if I wish to be successful.
