Today when I viewed the Spark Coach video the question Spark Guy asked was 'What is your weight loss goal?' My first thought was 'well to lose weight and be fit of course'. But then he said there is always a bigger goal so find yours. Hum...it took all of 5 seconds to realize I want to lose weight and be fit for my family.
I got married in my mid 30s and had my children in my late 30s. When some of my friends were attending their kids' high school graduations I was attending to diaper changing. Aging is natural and I am ok with that but I don't ever want to feel too old to be there for them or want my fitness or lack there of to limit my involvement with my kids.
Getting into a fitness program has so many non-scale victories - like energy and more positive attitude. This benefits not only me but my relationships with my family. In my last blog I talked about walking with my daughter most nights. It not only makes the time and miles fly by but has brought us closer and I get to hear more about her day than if we spent the same time watching TV. So even without reaching my optimal fitness level I am already reaping benefits.
So got to thank Spark Guy for helping me move my focus from the scale to the bigger picture.
Hope everyone has a great day and take time to focus on the big picture-it is such a motivator!
