Hey, I Really Like Spark Coach!
Saturday, August 11, 2012
My friend, HANAHSCLOUDY talks about Spark Coach in her latest blog. She said at first she wondered if Spark Coach would be redundant, but she's found that it helped her get her MOJO back!
I was also wondering if Spark Coach was redundant. Instead I found Spark Coach makes me more accountable. It also helps me to see the good things I'm doing. I never feel as though I'm good enough and I don't handle compliments well, so I never give myself enough credit for doing well. I'm very hard on myself, however, it really does help to have someone tell me that I'm doing a good job and Spark Coach does that. Oh, don't get me wrong, my Spark friends tell me that, too and positive feedback is always welcome! I believe it's something we all need.
I have learned how to use the Spark People site, so I don't need much help with that, but at times I have found that all of the information can be overwhelming. There is so much information about exercise that I occasionally find it contradictory and confusing and when I've asked questions on the community message board I get even more confused. Perhaps with Spark Coach I'll be able to get a more definitive answer since I will be able to ask an expert. I like that Spark Coach directs you to specific articles that complement the video of the day because it gives me a clearer picture and it's not so overwhelming.
I'm thinking of continuing to use Spark Coach! I never thought I'd say that. Spark People is such a positive place to be and I've been able to build a solid foundation of good habits. Spark Coach goes even further and takes that positive attitude and provides a positive environment that helps to reinforce those habits. Of course, now I have to wonder, what happens in 12 weeks? Do you start at the beginning all over again? Just what is the next level, because I started in May 2012 with 100 pounds to lose and repeating the first three months over and over might have me tearing my hair out!
