What's your excuse? Huh???

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

I caught a glimpse of a photo on television this morning with this caption. It was of a beautiful, slim young mom in her two piece swim suit with her three small children. She reminds me of my dd, naturally slim, always active (or she goes crazy), trophy wife with three young children. I think that's great. However, though there are lots of excuses, there are also a multitude of reasons why most of us don't look like them. As we make healthy choices we can be the best us we can be. We don't need accusing fingers pointing our way. I wish all my fellow Sparkers great success toward all your goals!

    I saw the picture. I thought t was nice, but obiously people took it as haughty, a put down, using her kids, or insulting people who don't have a gret figure.

    When I firt saw it, it said, if I can do this with all my young children, anyone can.

    Just like I don't get insulted when once in a blue moon you see some past 50-70 year old that does things most don't.Instead I was glad and happy for them. They looked healthy and vibrant. I thought use it or lose it, or do what you can to be your best and don't waste away from inactivity.

    I don't know what the lady said, if she was prideful or only wanting to sell stuff.Maybe her message wasn't good... I don';t know enought about it.

    We here at Spark have made a choice and time to take care of themselves. That is positive! emoticon

    It's interesting that we accept Chihuahuas and St. Bernards as dogs but WE should all be one size??

    Coach Nicole blogged about that young mother (she's all over the web) and ended by asking what we thought of her- motivational or quite the opposite?
    Nicole said she works out for 2 hours most days and eats very lean, clean and healthy and will never have that body- and she doesn't even have children!
    I am absolutely doing the best I can on any given day- not perfect but the best I can.

    I agree, there are better ways to motivate and inspire people than that.

    Woohoo! Let's do this!

    We can't let people with attitudes like that to stop us from being where we want to be. Those people are closed minded and judgemental. Don't let them get ya down. emoticon

    I blogged about this today too. It is a very negative way to "inspire" people in my opinion. Everyone's journey is their own.

    That is a rather rude caption.
