I have finally found the spark

Sunday, March 04, 2012

I have read and re-read The Spark and have been on Sparkpeople since July of 2009. I have the best motivation in the world my husband, my son, and my daughter. I am pre-diabetic and am scared of death of leaving my children early like my mom did. No matter how hard I tried I couldn't find the spark until now. I don't know what it is. I don't know if it is the Sparkpeople's Couch 2 5K program, my buddies in Waist Management facebook group, my local ppd group, or what but I have finally found the spark. Chris always talked about how 10 minutes of activity filters down in your life and I am finding this so to be true. Even with my asthma being a butt-munch I am still craving being active. Once I could breath the first thing I did was go to the park with the kids. I haven't been able to actual exercise this week on the Prednisione and with pneumonia and all, but I am finding my base activity level increasing. Also normally I would have give myself a free for-all because Prednisone makes you hungry and with it being my birthday and all, but I didn't. I had my cake but I didn't eat the whole thing. I let myself eat but make smart choices. Yesterday Tyler and I spent hours playing the kinect and cleaning and today we danced and cleaned the day away. And I can't wait till Monday to restart the Couch 2 5K walking program because I am going to complete it. Oh and I have lost a 2 lbs in my 10 days on Prednisone, 4 more to go and I am done.
