Today's Hike

Saturday, July 16, 2011

So today i decided that i was going to set a new goal for myself. We just recently moved to our city where we re currently living and we re just getting to know the city and its surrounding. The city has many different hiking trails that are part of the rainbow route so i decided why not make it a goal to walk them all by summers end. The trails are of various lengths and level of experience and there not just level walking trails . We re talking rugged rocks and lots of climbing. Pure wilderness. So today's walk was on the trail called Oak Forest .so far i have walked blueberry hill and Oak forest both moderate level yay me

Sparkpeople and the power of its community

Friday, July 08, 2011

Ever since i started sparkpeople i knew it was a great thing. It has everything and so much more anyone looking to regain control of there lives and and wanting to start a healthy lifestyle. Everything from tracking tools, information, exercise videos, nutritional plans, motivational pages and so much more i could go on for hours. I think one of the most powerful tools on spark people is simply just that "THE PEOPLE". The motivation and support the Sparkpeople community provides is truly amazing and its a place you can come to with out prejudice. Its a place that offers something for everyone from age groups , to those struggling with many different aliments as well as those with different goals in mind. Today i witnessed first hand just how powerful that community can be. Today was one of those dull overcast days and i was extremely tired i didn't want to exercise much less get off the couch . I came to sparks as i usually do and read team boards .One of my team mates were talking about the exercise they had managed to do today and as i said in my previous blog i thought why cant i do that . So that's just what i did i went out used that motivation that i received from that person and i walked 45 mins of brisk walking. Before i headed out on my walk i blogged of my intentions and off i went. Well tonight a fellow spark buddy of mine who has been away from sparks for quite some time came by. She's being trying to get herself back on program and she is trying to find her motivation or her SPARk if you will. She read my blog and that's where i knew just how powerful it is to be an active member for you see when she read my blog it did something for her too , it motivated her to exercise just as i had been motivated by another spark buddy of mine. Then i thought this truly does show you just the power we as people have. Its like a chain reaction or a wild forest fire burning out of control. Guess that's where the spark comes in . It starts out as a spark and turns into a raging fire one person helping another often without even realizing it. So just as people say to smile because you never know when someone may be falling in love with your smile i say this to you. Blog , post on the boards, join teams because you never know when even the smallest thing you do could be in turn motivating someone else.

    It is so true how motivating someone else can be even if you have never met that person.
Thanks for reminding me how important spark is.
