Day 10 of S2S Boot Camp - WooHoo!!!

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

Boot Camp is giving me something more than what I expected to receive: a sense of community. I do the water aerobics and chat with the folks who come regularly and cheer on the new people. I share with my family meals that are nutritious. So doing the Boot Camp in the privacy of my own home I thought I would be alone with the laptop and Coach Nicole was my ME time.

Today a thought came to me that I'm one of 21, 000+ and that at the same time I was doing the 7-Minute Seated Resistance Band Workout for Upper Body someone, somewhere was probably doing the same exercise. Maybe someone was and I could be mistaken. It doesn't matter, what does matter is the sense of community I felt when I realized that 21,000+ is only a small portion of the big picture. I don't know the exact number of Sparkies, but there must be millions worldwide.

And I am a part of something that is saving peoples lives. When the thought occured to me then I teared up. As I think about it again now I smile and feel a great sense of belonging to something great.

That makes every meal I plan, every push-up I do affect millions of people. Talk about a sense of responsibility and pride. WOW!!!

    You are an amazing woman with an amazing insight. I never thought of Sparks that way before, but you are certainly right.
