Igniting another *spark*

So this is the second week in a row that I have gone out on a late night run with my husband, Tim. I can't even begin to tell you what great motivation and inspiration we bring to each other. I think in all our years together (all 7 years), these runs of ours are probably the activity we get to connect on the most. It's our quiet time together... when we walk, we get to talk about stuff we don't or won't talk about in front of the kids. When we run, we push each other to do our best. Having him there telling me, "C'mon, babe, You can do it" means the world to me!
I mainly want to lose this weight for myself, you all know that, and you pretty much can't successfully lose weight for anyone BUT yourself. But there is a part of me that wants to lose it for him, too. He just worked so hard to lose the majority of his extra weight (50lbs! that's our 2 kids combined!) I feel like I owe it to him to keep myself healthy as well, plus we are setting a mold for our children as well.
So yeah, doing this together, really feels good. Something about it just brings us closer. Even just planning for it gets us excited. It used to be going for dinner that we got excited about!
