Out for lunch

Saturday, July 27, 2013

Today I went for lunch with a very good friend that I have known for years.
While we were out I started telling her about the color run and how she and her young daughter should sign up for it next year. She had not heard of the color run before so I started explaining what it is and why I had signed up for it.
I explained that after joining SP that I had decided I wanted to run a 5K and I had seen others blogs about the color run so I decided that would be a fun first 5K.
Then I went on to tell her about this great site and the great recipes, the trackers, the educational articles, everything I could.
By the end of our lunch, she was sold. I said that I would be her spark friend and I would encourage her to exercise every day. She had lost weight in the past but one thing leads to another and you fall off the exercise wagon.
We went directly to Target after lunch and she purchased the fitbit to keep her motivated as well.
I am so proud of my friend and can't wait for her to join so that we can motivate and inspire each other every day.
I told her all about my wonderful spark friends and how they keep me accountable and how many have inspired me to stay on track on this great journey.
It just takes one spark to start the flame and I am always so happy when I can spread that spark and help people to join this great journey!
So thanks again to all my spark friends and let's keep on sparking each other and new members too!
Way to go people!

    Holly, you do more than spark people, you are more like a flame thrower! LOL! You are wonderful encouragement and a fantastic cheerleader! A great big Sparkly welcome to your friend and a huge thank you to you for being such a great friend.
