Hi!

I just am trying the two week free trial for SparkCoach. You know what? I am liking it so far. Yes, it walks you through using the site. However, for some reason that seems to be the little push I need to actually exercise. Also, to just do what I can now and not wait till some perfect time which never seems to be today.

Definitely wait until you are feeling better. Give yourself a break! :-) I just got over a very weird virus that gave me a lot of fatigue that lasted for a few weeks, and then this odd thing called viral arthritis. If I had listened to my body instead of to my insecure feelings, I wouldn't have thrown my back out *and* hurt my foot, which gave me yet another week off of exercising!

I think that being sick makes you feel down emotionally. I suggest you take care of your own self! You will have time later! emoticon

Hi guys,
I just signed up for sparkcoach yesterday. I haven't explored all the ins and outs, but so far it's pretty basic. You get a generic message of encouragement as you complete the tasks and there's a generic fitness message via video. I think it could be more helpful if you communicate with the coaches via e-mail. I just had minor surgery, so only light exercise and no weights above 5 lbs. for 6 weeks. And I am feeling pretty motivated right now, so I don't really have a reason to e-mail the coaches. soccerwife- I would wait until you are feeling better too. Save the free week until your back to yourself and can benefit more. I haven't seen the cost of sparkcoach anywhere. Does anyone know?

Spark Coach is more about guidance for using the Spark site and has some motivational aspects, but that's about all. You can also get a direct email from one of the Spark coaches.

You should definitely rest up and wait until you're feeling better before you worry about sparking. You have to feel up to it!

Has anyone done Spark Coach? If you've signed up for it, what's it like? Does it kick your hiney? Do you like it? I'm so tempted to try it, but am sick right now (on tamiflu and amoxicillin) and have no energy. Afraid to sign up today and already feel defeated as it's all I can do to be awake and keep the puppy from chewing everything in the house, the 3 year old entertained, etc. Should I wait until I am well to sign up?
