Day 44/120

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

I just spent the last 45 minutes flipping through Sparkpeople...looking at blogs that people have written..looking at some of the folks that posted on those blogs and noticing the link or commonality of those folks..and I came to a sudden realization ...

I guess I am somewhat 'alone' in my journey here! I have added a few friends and sent many friend requests.. I have sent a good number of 'work-out Buddy' requests as well !

This is NOT meant as a statement of pity nor am I feeling sorry for myself! It is the knowing that I got to 267 pounds by myself and I guess that I will be alone getting back to my fighting weight!

I have strong a strong Vision of where I have envisioned I need to be and what I am here to accomplish!

My goal: To be in the 2016 Olympics for Archery! My Total Gym gives me a number of exercises that are strenthening me to build a strong frame that will empower my Vision to go from rural NY to Rio de Janeiro . . . from garden archery to Gold !

    I haven't made any local connections, but have made connections through teams or groups that I've joined. For example I joined a males over 50 Sparkteam. I don't know if there is a archery Sparkteam, but maybe you can look for one or even start one!

    I thought people would be more in to being spark buddies too, when I first started, but didn't find it to be true, so I just figured I'd be doing it myself. I tried to find someone in my area to go walking with too, but when I contacted a person who lives in my area they did not contact me back. I just gave up after the first contact, although I really shouldn't have. Just because 1 person is like that doesn't mean they all are like that. My point is I do know where you are coming from. I think it is easier to find someone in your area to be a sparkbuddy than over the computer. it is just more motivating for me I think anyways.
