Linda,

When I signed up, I could try spark coach 10 days for free which is under One Time Challenges for 500 points. Then under Daily Sparkpoint challenges it states visit Spark Coach for for 25 points. I really liked it. I went Spark Diet (90+ Days). I really liked it so I paid for a years worth because there are are 3 different programs. Daily I go through 5 pages. 1-Welcome; 2-check-up which I check off how I ate, how I exercised, my motivation level, and how I did over all; 3-program page which either one of the coaches talks or I read something. This one really teaches me something different daily; 4-tracking page where I track 3 more goals; 5-community page where I can either update my status or do a task the suggest. I was rushing through it as a leader and didn't even realize I was missing a lot of good information. Yesterday encouraging me to check out a 10 minute challenge. Today reading other people success stories! I didn't realize SP had either one! I really desire to get out of SP as much help as I can. Once a week I can email the coach a question. I felt it was so worth the money. When I realized I was not getting out of it everything, I started over. I am on day 4 again and not day 90! You may have done the 10 when you started.
Marty

Little mini-challenge for you: Gain energy from eating some vitamin C-rich foods.

Over the next few days, concentrate on adding foods rich in vitamin C to your meals or snacks. There are plenty of options, including red or green bell pepper, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, strawberries, kiwi, cantaloupe, and papaya. Or get a liquid dose with a glass of orange, grapefruit, or vegetable juice. A chewable vitamin C is also a viable option (I find this easiest, actually).

A deficiency in vitamin C may deplete your levels of carnitine (a substance that helps your body burn fat for energy) by as much as 50%. As you'd expect, that can make you feel a lot less energetic! Many of us don't get the C we need, so adding one vitamin C-rich food can help you bring those levels up and keep you going strong throughout the day. emoticon emoticon
