It's me again! Trying and trying one of these times it will stick and I won't look back and see it has been literally months since I have Sparked!
Since I was last on regularly Sparking I finally got a new job! Which is wonderful! I will miss the good parts of veterinary work but the lows were just too low for me.SO back to my new job I am working in the financial end of human medicine. Mostly processing payments and filing mail. MY favorite part of the building I am working in is just outside my office is a water machine with crushed ice! I KNOW that shouldn't be as exciting as it is but hey it is keeping me happy!
Also the building is very large and one lap is a quarter mile, and they encourage us to get out there and walk the track on our breaks which I have been taking advantage of.
There are also weight loss incentives and things so all these things are looking good for a fitter me!

    Stopping by your page to say hi and wish you a good week. Also, if you would like to try something different with a little challenge...I have one for you to consider. It's a small private team that competes with others within the larger X-Weighted team. Doing various challenges. Runs for 8 weeks. Stop by my sparkpage and click on the X-Weighted 10 Challenge....Dwindling_Divas team. Join, look it over and add your name to the sign-up thread. Main requirement is to post weight weekly...other activities, all though very beneficial, are optional.

    If you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks.
