Uh Oh! I SPARKed something.

Saturday, October 06, 2012

Since I quit smoking 3.5 years ago, when my son does his Special Olympic Bowling I used to excuse myself to go have a cig... now I excuse myself to go for at least a mile walk.
Apparently I sparked a couple of the other parents. One mom joined me on my walk and a dad brought his bike to ride. It warmed my heart to see folks doing something good for themselves.

    Hey I just read your last three blogs and everyone was a good one!! I saved that youtube video and I'm going to give that workout a try tomorrow morning. I really need to get some stretching in so thanks for that.

Congrats on getting a couple of others walking - you should be very very proud!!

I really liked Travelgrrl's suggestion of eating an apple or something healthy before dinner. I think I'll give that a try since dinner time is my worst time as well.

Keep up the good work!!!

    Too cool! We know the research tells us that if we hang out with overweight people we're more likely to be overweight. So maybe the reverse is true too??

Thanks for your good wishes!

    You should be sooo proud of yourself for quitting smoking 3.5 years ago! I quit in 2000 and it was one of the hardest things I ever did. You have replaced a horrible, life-sucking habit with a life-extending habit. Good for you!

I was challenged by a Sparkfriend to post pictures of myself, and I'm going to challenge YOU to do the same! You should be so proud of what you've done and how many people you inspire.
