Hi fellow sparkers!! I hope everyone is making it through the week on track! Thanks to everyone who wished me well when I was sick. I really appreciate it! I am feeling much better and now I am jumping head first right back into my healthy lifestyle. I did go a little too hard yesterday and was in a lot of pain in my joints last night (chasing around a toddler when your knees and hips hurt with every step is not fun). I decided to give my self a day to recover, so today I just went on a walk for my cardio and focused on strength training (arm day). I am also trying to build my savings, so I attempted a "no spend" May. Well....that didn't work very well and I already bought a few things. I work at Marshall's,( which is a retail store for anyone who doesn't know) so temptation is always there and , apparently, I have approximately zero self control in multiple aspects of my life. I was thinking about maybe starting with a goal of a few days or a week and then as I achieve my goals, slowly increase the amount of time I go without making unnecessary purchases. Smaller goals seems to help with my weight loss goals so maybe they can help in other areas of my life. If anyone has any tips on how to stop compulsive shopping and/or help build up my savings, I am always open to ideas. Have a wonderful night everyone!! Weight: 153.0lbs (-3.0lbs total)

    I love Marshall's and don't think it would be easy to work there especially since you can monitor when new things in your size come through! I also live in a very small condo and "things" are getting to be too much. Good luck with you goals - little steps.

    I am glad to hear that you are feeling better and getting back on track. Your idea of starting a small doable Savings goal is terrific!!
