It's amazing what a few days and a few friends can do to "jump start" a healthy eating and fitness program like this...especially when the friends are sisters-in-the-Lord. I'm relatively new to SparkPeople and to this team, but I particularly noticed a difference when the "Monday work-day stress" hit again today. Instead of feeling overwhelmed and depressed, the exercise videos, articles, SparkPoint activities and the interaction with teammates encouraged me to keep going; to get up and do a quick 15-minute workout during lunch (instead of eating at my desk), and to grab a bowl of blueberries INSTEAD of...well, we won't go there! :-) To anyone new that might be reading this blog, please know that we are here -- to encourage you, to celebrate your successes and to pray that you will realize and continue to be all God created you to be! And to those who are on this team...especially those that welcomed me and my dear sister "nerfie99" who told me about this great place...THANK YOU! You are the best!
