I just finished reading an awesome story from the Daily Spark. It was about a strong woman who has changed her life for the better. She did it for her daughter and now she's the active Mom who does things with her child. She is doing what I aspire to be doing more and more of!
In case you missed it, here's the link:
Besides doing this for myself, I want to be there for Emma. I want to be able to go on the moon bounce and not be afraid-remember "My Face Broke My Fall" blog last month? Now I admit that a few years back, I wouldn't have even attempted that. But I'm still not fit like I want to be. I was still feeling a little helpless to get my child out. I don't want to feel like that again!
I am so happy because I feel so positive and focused on my journey. This week I have exercised everyday. Yes, a lot of the days have involved shoveling exercise, but I am getting stronger with each dig. I have exercised at least 50 minutes each day with the exception of Monday where I did 20 minutes. But you know what? That's ok! Doing something is better than having done nothing! I am doing my best and that's what matters the most.
I have talked with a couple of Spark buddies about blogging. I want to look into becoming a professional blogger. My boss is the one who originally suggested I should do that about a month ago. Then after thinking it over and talking about it, it's really something I want to pursue! I want to do so much with my life. I don't want to be held back by my weight. I WANT THIS! I will continue to Shoot For The Moon and Reach For The Stars.
I want to be the
Simone, mother, wife, daughter, cousin, niece, and friend that I can be. And I am able to do that with God and the help of my DEAR DEAR Spark family
! Thank you SO much for your support & encouragement. Without it, I definitely would not be able to stay inspired & motivated on my journey!
WE CAN DO THIS AS LONG AS WE STICK TOGETHER!
