I have been accused of doing much of what I do here on the internet purely for the attention it brings me. Sometimes that's true. But when you see some of the things posted on Facebook, I have to admit that what is posted by myself and others who have a blogging backround is much more original than the usual "repost this if you love Jesus" posts that we all have the tendency to see. And believe me, I don't have to prove I love Jesus by reposting a message.
Now that I have my rant out of the way, let's get to the subject of the post. I have noticed others around me are wanting to start working out. I was told by one coworker that I have inspired her to come to work early and spend about 15 minutes working out. Another coworker wants to check into Weight Watchers. I received an email last week from a friend who reads this blog. He told me that he joined Weight Watchers.
Top all this with my wife wanting to get walking, but not with me at 4:30am, and I feel that I'm doing a fair job encouraging others. This encourages me to do better for myself.
Another bit of encouragement came in the comment section from my last post. Syd always gives me a good word, and Busy Bee Suz always brings me a smile. There was a comment from someone who come to visit for the first time, Strong Beauty Val. After a little bit of following links, I found that Val writes a blog on women's fitness. So for someone like that to come over to this blog and offer the encouragement that she gave me, I felt that was a privilege.
So if at all possible, offer someone some encouragement today.
