Epiphany ... again ...

Monday, December 31, 2012

Yesterday we got home from church and I was milling around on the computer. I found the mobile apps for Sparkpeople and got all a-twitter when I (purchased) downloaded it to my Kindle. After I got it on there, I just HAD to go surfing around to see what all it had in it ... and that's when it hit me (AGAIN) that having the tools and not using them is REALLY DUMB! I can download a ga-zillion work out programs and eating plans but having them isn't going to make a bit of difference if I don't put in the work!

So, I grabbed my work out bag and swung through the living room to let my husband know that I was going to change and go for a walk. He gave me "that look" ... you know the one where you just said something that the other person wants to comment on REALLY, REALLY bad but they hold their tongue! Well ... about 3 mins later, DH shows up to change too and off we went on a 3 mile walk. It totally struck me that my journey isn't just about me ... it's really for us. If I decide to stop being physically active, my husband will too. Fair ... maybe not but it's a fact. I want our next year to be even better than this year has been and I'm re-energized after yesterday to put in the planning and do the work to make it happen! We eat what I shop for, what I cook, what I fix. We exercise together when I make the effort to just do it. His fitness and health journey will always be HIS to direct but I am reminded that I do really does count!

No more excuses ... I think I have a much brighter illumination on where I'm headed with those resolutions for 2013 ...

emoticon Happy New Year!

    I don't know how your blog got dropped from my subscriptions. But you and I are on the same page. My husband and I are the same way -- we are each other's best cheerleader OR each other's partner in "crime."

My goal for 2013 is to have each of us motivate each other to the greatest good, and not the other direction!
