Met Spark People Members!

Saturday, March 02, 2013

Crap! I barely went over my calories for the day. It's been a while since I've done that but everything else about the day was excellent!

I met up with some fellow Sparkmembers for dinner. It was really cool. I probably talked way too much. I have a tendency to do that when I get out with adults after a while of staying at home! It was a lot of fun meeting everyone and it gave me a serious motivation boost. Just meeting people in person really helps. I'm not sure how to explain it. It just makes everything seem more real and that makes the whole process better. I read about other people all the time and love the motivation from that but meeting real people is, well, real. (Yeah, my descriptions are really good tonight.) emoticon

DH was chosen to participate in his company's first wellness program, so tomorrow morning we're meeting with others in the program and going for a walk to a local farmer's market. I'm really looking forward to it and to staying active with him and the kids because they are trying to include family as well.

After that, we'll spend the day walking around Fiesta Texas with in-laws and tons of kids, so I should easily exceed all of my step goals tomorrow.

    It was so good to meet you as well, and you know what? I totally understand the meeting people in person motivation thing. I mentioned my writers group last night? Most of us participate in a 30-day international challenge in November called NaNoWriMo, where we're supposed to write 50,000 words during the month. It's hard, and what's most motivating to almost everyone is all the dinners and write-ins we plan. Actually meeting with other writers is definitely the best thing we can do!!

    And you *didn't* talk too much at all! It was great that you talked - we really got to know you and I think we all shared stories pretty evenly. It was fantastic! :)

    I understand what you mean, it is wonderful to meet Sparkfriends! I met two in Athens, Greece, yesterday, as I had a few hours between two flights. It was wonderful! Thank you for sharing your experience, I hope it will encourage others to meet their Sparkfriends too.
