Whew...And I am Still Catching UP!!!!

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Hello emoticons

It seems that July is just as busy as June if not busier! The kids are out of school so they keep me occupied during the day in addition to all the demands of being a mother, wife, student, instructor, "wanna be" runner and inspiring Sparker.

I still manage to get in my fitness and definitely make supporting all of you a part of my day! I know some of you do not mind me missing a day on checking in on each of you...not me so much; you all are my family!

To be honest, I do not have any one around me or in my LIVE life supporting me! I do not have a support group or any friends interested in being healthy. I have heard all of their excuses and totally get for me, there are NO more excuses! Sure we ALL fall down and get stuck yet WE ALL eventually get up and keep it moving, well not anyone around me!

Anyway...I am still catching up on a lot of things and hope that you all continue to be patient with me as well as check in on me!

    I know what you mean about not having support people around in the immediate circle. ...yet! I didn't either, but when. I started with Zumba I found the class was really sweet and encouraging in a delicate way.
My spark community was a really important support network and still is THE most important source of support, but after I had been Sparking for over a year and had become a regular exerciser and started showing results, DH started to exercise and change his eating patterns, too. Not from anything I said directly, but fromeverything. Now a whole bunch of folk at work are exercising and talking abut their programmes with me, just from seeing me keep at it and get results. When they would say what did you do in the weekend I would say, Zumba, and A couple of hours at the pool, or they would ask, what have you got on tonight and I would say, two hours in the warm pool, yay! and I can see now, it made them think, gee, if she can do it, I can too.

    My husband is my greatest supporter in real life; he puts up with my eating changes and motivates me to go to the gym when I'm too tired to go. I used to invite people on Facebook to go work out with me because I used to have a membership to the gym with a free pass, but no one took me up on it. My personal trainer was my other supporter, but the sessions were quite $$$$$. (I only have one kid and that has been keeping crazy busy lately. Of course, being stuck in the house is not as fun as going to the park or library or museum or zoo.)

    I feel the same way. I get a lot of support from Spark friends.
I do have a group of LIVE friends that are supportive, try to be very active and eat right. But I think the part of Spark that I like is the sharing of deeper more personal thoughts. Guess I should be able to be that open and honest with my friends, but we live in a small town. It seems that what you tell one person ends up being known by everyone in town!

    I am trying to relax and enjoy summer, but I already feel fall lurking around the corner. Trying to work ahead a bit so it won't be so rushed, but you know that never really works completely. Felt blessed today because it rained hard all day except for the hour when I was walking and jogging. So happy I wasn't forced to take it indoors!
