Sparkpeople Motivator!! Say What?!

Wednesday, July 27, 2016

Hey Sparkies,

So first of all I just have to take the time to say emoticon emoticon emoticon to everyone who took the time to read my previous blog and leave a comment. It was really a pouring out of my heart and I am so happy that so many of you could be inspired by it. Enough so that you thought I was worthy of being a Sparkpeople Motivator and voting for me as such. It was such a nice surprise this afternoon to open my email and be greeted by the words "You are a motivational member." I can't begin to explain to you all how honored and overjoyed I felt that my struggle, failures and "successes" too could be a motivation to so many of you that you voted for me to be a motivational member. I keep opening my SparkPage and looking at my new badge of honor. emoticon So again I just want to emoticon all.

Funnily enough I seem to also be taking on the role of relationship motivator. My DH has decided once again that his weight is at a level that he's uncomfortable with and so with my help he wants to do something about it. I am so happy for this step (though it is one he's taken about 3 times emoticon ). I really hope it actually becomes a lifestyle change for him this time around. I see his struggles though- he has a few health issues that make working out or at least working out consistently a challenge and it doesn't help that he doesn't share my love of exercise. I think we can make this work though because he even signed up for Spark this time around. emoticon

We started walking about mid-week last week and he's stuck with it and today he decided that he wants to step it up a notch by starting Insanity:Max 30. I'm excited to share this with him but I'm not sure how I'm going to make it work while doing PiYo too. I guess I can figure it out though because though the PiYo videos are challenging, they challenge you in a different way than a Insanity: Max 30 video so I think maybe the combo might be good for my body if it doesn't tire me out too much that is. And if that happens I think I'll just put off the PiYo until we complete Max:30 together.

All in all this is really a welcome change and just what both of us need to be happier, healthier versions of ourselves.

I think I'll end my rambling here because I don't want to take up too much of your time but again I just want to emoticon you all for your love and support. It really is what keeps me going on some days. As usual don't forget to emoticon because emoticon
