Hello, Fellow Sparkies!
I hope everyone is doing well! On Father's Day, we took my DH to see Madagascar III in 3D.
It was a great "feel good" family flick. We were planning a bike ride later on, but unfortunately, it was too hot to take a bike ride that day.
It has been a hectic few weeks. I'm thankfully feeling back to normal after a weekend of the dreaded stomach flu! Blech! I felt terrible not being able to eat properly or get moving at all. But, I did manage to log on to SP during those days to cheer me up. I joined more groups & I even signed up for a 1 mile virtual run next month. This is week 7 of Couch to 5K training for me. I can't believe the progress I have made in these last few weeks. Jogging/running for 20-25 minutes straight is attainable for me because I am going at my own pace & from all the amazing support I get on SP. After yesterday's run, I felt on top of the world. :) Last night, I even wore my workout clothes to bed, so I would just get up & go on my W7/D2 run.
5 AM this morning. Different story. DID NOT want to get up...pressed snooze 3 times. I read a few pages of my new book, "THE SPARK" :) in hopes it would motivate me to get moving. That got me out of bed. As I logged in this AM, the blog photo flashed of a woman running with her dog that read: "Think of how good you'll feel when you're done." *Click!!!!* I warmed up, stretched & hit the pavement. Woo-hoo! Day 2 of week 7- DONE! And I did feel WONDERFUL & de-stressed! I love you, SP!!!
In the last 2 weeks, I received 2 new books: The "SP Cookbook" & as I mentioned above, "The Spark." After glancing through both, along with logging in everday, FAILURE is not an option.
I know too much (& learning more each day) to just give up on my health & well being. Small changes in my lifestyle adds up to big results. The support from SP all around is unbelieveable. I am so happy to belong to the SP community.
I am looking forward to diving into each book & watch my own success story unfold. :)
As always, thank you for the encouraging comments, adds & likes! So until next time, MOVE IT, MOVE IT!!!!
