It Takes a Village: Day 19!

Day 19! The usual, spark, workout, work, home…this is becoming instilled in my routine, love it! A few days ago a friend started a fb support group for a few of us that are actively trying to better ourselves. I’m so blessed to have such awesome people that have been supportive of me, I find that any time you make a change you are going to have people who are there for you waiting to see you succeed and people who are there just waiting to see you fail. Its so awesome to be surrounded by people who want to see me do my best and succeed.

Over the past 19 days, I have been to many social functions where I would normally be partaking in junk food, drinks and crazy late nights….well two of those things I have been successful in avoiding, the junk and drinks. I so happy I have great friends who instead of pushing me to ‘just have a taste’ or ‘just have one drink’ have been uber supportive of me, oh sure there is the occasional ‘do you want a beer’ but when I say no thanks its no big deal. I don’t expect people to change their ways just because I’m changing mine, but its sure nice to have people not push me to ‘just have a little’.

People often say it takes a village to raise a child..but it also takes a village to just live and survive in this world sometimes, I’m so happy I have an awesome village of people that are cheering me on. Such a great feeling!
