Does anyone else agree that Spark needs to be more accessible for handheld devices? I have an iphone 4s and I feel like all I can really do without hassle on it is track my nutrition, fitness, and water on the app. But I would love to be able to... Read more

Tuesday, February 07, 2012      4 comments

Well, I'm not proud of how I've been doing. I am unfortunately an "all or nothing" type of person at times. And when I took a break on my workouts because I hurt my leg, I unfortunately started eating (and drinking) everything in sight. It doesn... Read more
