For a spark team challenge, I need to write a blog entry about someone who inspires me. It's hard to pinpoint just one person because many different things inspire me.
My non-spark friend, Pam, is one that I always use as inspiration. She began eating healthfully when her father had a heart attack. She decided that was not going to happen to her. She reads labels and looks for organic food. She allows herself to indulge with a nibble of her favorite sweets. It's always so funny to open a box of donuts and find one with a sliver cut out of it. Everyone knows it's her, and someone finishes the donut for her. She can stop at just the one nibble, and I want to be like that.
Also, the show The Biggest Loser inspires me. I feel like I can do anything when I watch that show. If only the good feeling from that show lasted until the next week, I think I would be an exercise machine. haha.
Much like my BSG buddy, Christine (RICECHEX), I am inspired by the people who have what I would like. I try to hold onto that inspiration throughout the day. It's hard sometimes, but it's there if I just look for it.
But I always know that I can come to Sparkpeople and be inspired whenever I need it. On the BSG, by looking at the progress of any number of people here, or by reading board posts. I thank goodness for Sparkpeople every day!
