I've got SparkPeople to thank for a lot of things, but I think this one is at the top of my list.
Today, four months before I turn 40, I've discovered I can find it within myself.
No more looking to others to ask me to go for a walk, or attend a fitness class.
No more making excuses for not finding the time to work out, or not wanting to do it if I'm alone.
I've found I have a Spark inside me that fires myself up to do the things I know I should do.
I've found a desire to be the best shape that I could be in for "40".
I've found a wonderful attitude that makes me want to have those toned arms and legs and the beginnings of a washboard stomach for no one else other than me.
I've found that having those things I listed above makes me feel better... not because I think I'm turning heads, but because I can do things without it exhausting me.
Best of all I've found that I can make changes in my lifestyle gradually that will stick with me the rest of my life and thanks to SparkPeople I'll be able to enjoy that life without getting out of breathe or being uncomfortable in my own skin.
