So the journey begins again. My small little town is doing its best to get everyone up and moving. One way this is happening is by hosting this walking program in our local high school. One of the teachers has mapped out several routes throughout the school to walk. You can walk up and down the main corridor 11 times for a mile, or add in the little wings and do it 3 times for 1 mile. This has been very successful and as of the last 2 years I have succeeded. I should mention our school is 100 miles from the mighty bridge that is in my background picture on my spark page, so we all think we are walking up to the bridge in 100 days. This walking program not only gets people up and moving but it gets them out and being social. It is nice to see them standing and talking after the walking. I got behind 2 women last year, who were slower than me, but they were discussing a recipe, I finally asked one of them to copy it down and bring it tomorrow. She was happy to do it and I think even happier to get me off their heels. Gosh I didn't mean to invade but it sounded so delish! I guess I am blogging about this walk because I am ready to get motivated again, I need something to look forward to, even if it is just totalling my miles on a big chart in a high school cafeteria. I normally love to walk and lately I have loved to not walk, so heres to my kick start! Wish me luck!!!

Today I decided the spark wheel not only makes me feel old, but it hates me. I should probably explain that a little.When I first joined spark people, there was no bonus spin for gathering 25 points, This makes me sound old when I say that. Also when I first began my spark journey, we had a set limit of points we were able to earn a day, again dont I sound old, back in the day....which is really no big deal. I am not complaining about it, I just think oh my even spark people has changed enough since I joined that I can say when I joined this is what we had.... The food tracker is different, the exercises are way better, the polls and quizzes are more accessible and I even enjoy a lot more recipes. But I digress. The spark wheel and I do not get along. It hates me!! The majority of the time its highest point is a 10. I am lucky to get a 20 or a 25. I NEVER get a 100. Prizes? are you kidding? I think prizes on the wheel is just for newbes. But I spin it daily anyway and get my little 3 or 5 points and move on with my life. When I do get my 25 points and get to spin the bonus wheel, guess what!! The same thing little bitty numbers!!I am stubborn though I will not give up. I will continue to spin that wheel until it decided I am an ok person.I have stopped hitting the mouse so hard when I hit spin, maybe that will help. I also walk away and dont watch it spin, do you think that will work???? any suggestion is welcome. I hate feeling old and being hated by the wheel!!
Thanks for reading!!
