Well yesterday was pretty awful. I was sick, I am guessing 24 hr bug. I did go to volunteer just thought I could work through it but boy was I wrong. I was so glad when it was time to go home, yes I could have left early, but hate to leave them short handed. I was to go on a couple of errands, but that didnt happen. Nor did part of my exercise. I came home got in some warmer comfortable clothes and got a warm blanket bundles up and had some soup. It didnt help or hurt. I just felt awful in general. I did get the laundry folded and jello made for DH lunch. I was a crab.
I didnt get to spark really or anything I had wanted to do.
This morning I am feeling better. Need to get groceries and run errand for DH but first cardio did 30 minutes. After I got home did another 30 so feel really good to get that done. Tuffy our big boy had to go to vet, think he might has a bladder infection. He is still there they needed to do some test. I will be getting him n about 30 minutes. Hope he co operated. Hope is not too sick too.
I have gotten on some sparking and that makes me feel better too.
I did have one friend who blogged about the frustration she felt, she wants to help more people learn to love who they are now so that they will have better success in weight loss. I have to agree there is still too much focus on body image even on SP, its the weight loss that is talked about. Now I know that weight loss is why we are all here, but we got to this point because we have eating problems and more. We have to know that unless we take care of the problems, weight loss itself is not going to make us happy. I have learned to love me for who I am NOW, I know that if I dont love me, weight loss will not make all things good.
I do understand my friends feeling sad, I too wish I could reach more people and help them too, but I am not really important or noticeable, except by a few and mostly my friends. Am I sad sometimes, but if I can help one person help themselves than I am having success. Hey I had like 13 people comment on my last blog, I was floored, some were new to me, that was cool.
I do care and want just honestly everyone to have a positive experience with their journey to better health and getting fit. I want them to feel the joys and thrill of some surrcess, to get motivated and keep it going. I will not give up my this desire of mine. Slow and steady will win the race and I am patient. So dear friends I am going nowhere and will be here to give to anyone who needs a friend. Love friends, love you all.

    So sorry that you were feeling sick yesterday. Glad to read that you're feeling better today. You're always such a sparkling friend, it's a big deal when you're not able to spark. WE MISS YOU! I love you my friend. Love, Dawn

    That nasty bug is making its rounds all over the place. You needed a day where you could just take care of Debbie. I am surprised you were feeling better enough to exercise today. You need to make sure you are better.

    You do reach people here on Spark People. You do so much for the Team with all of your mentoring of team members that have gone MIA. You are so important to the Team as a Leader and you really care about the Team members and their success on their journeys. I think you reach more people than you think.

    Keep on Sparking because you do reach others and touch their hearts. emoticon emoticon
