Another year has come and gone. What is it that you wish you did differently this past year? If there's at least one thing, then now is a great time to start working towards a better year this year. Pick one thing at at time, start small and remember it takes 21 days to set a new habit. Whether it's spending more time with your family, learning a new skill, working out, doing more healthy cooking, exploring a new adventure. Combine any of these if you can, too! Wishing us all a great 2011!

I LOVE getting the spark people awards in my email and on my sparkpage at the end of the month and seeing the number of weeks of my SparkPeople fitness streak increasing!
After I saw them the first time, I eagerly awaited to see what I would get at the end of the next month! It keeps me motivated to see them! I also love seeing the sparkstreaks of how long I've exercised! ! Seeing the streaks keeps me from missing workouts because I don't want to break my record!!
I have found that I start to "hunger" for things like Dairy Queen (when I'm not hungry) when I keep seeing banner ads on the sides of facebook and other websites that I search. So I minimize the browser window to a smaller setting, so I can see what I want, and miss all those pesky ads. The power of seeing a familiar logo sets me craving for things not good for me and this is how I prevent some of that.
I have noticed that for the most part, the banner ads on Spark People have been better than most, when coming to foods/cravings. This works mostly for the side ads and maybe not so much for the banner ads on the top and bottom of pages
