Spreading the Spark
Friday, February 24, 2012
I came home from grocery shopping after work. It was another lovely day here in OK, and my daughter was outside playing with her good friend and neighbor, whose mom I took to the gym with me yesterday. The girls came running over to me, so I asked my daughter's friend, "How is your mom today? Was she sore?" and she said, "Yeah she was.. but she's down at the gym now!"
I was so happy. This woman who was, just a few days ago, afraid to go to the gym went by herself after just one time with me. She had felt so good yesterday, it filled my heart with pride. I inspired someone. I did exactly what SparkGuy asks of us... I spread the Spark.
I may not have lost a lot, if any, weight yet... but people are noticing my efforts, if nothing else. I might not be a good dieter, or a good runner, or a good biker, BUT I AM a good FRIEND. I have that totally going for me right now as I make friends on Spark as well as in my neighborhood. I've got the guys at work cutting back on coffee and drinking green tea instead. I'm making small changes for me, and in turn, changing the world around me. These are such small feats in the scheme of things, but hopefully they lead to a much, much bigger change. Until next time....
PS- My doctor doesn't want me to weigh myself except for once a month at his office. I am having a mental difficulty accepting that order. IDK... I know I have gone down a pants size since I started... should that be enough? Or should I sneak in a weigh in? Opinions please?!
