    Yo-Yos are the worst. But if anyone can do it, we know you can...and will!

    Thank you for the bike goodie! You are an inspiration to me - and, who knows, maybe I will give a tri a try :) I would have never thought I could run a half-marathon, but through the inspiration of you and a few other sparkfriends, I've done TWO! Pretty cool how we can cheer each other on even though we've never met in person.

    You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!!

    Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!

    Again, Congratulations Beautiful!

    "Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.
    Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements.
    You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward.
    Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
    -- Ralph Marston

    Success is a Choice
    "Today I will make many choices, and each will have a consequence. Today I can choose to tell myself that I am worth the effort, or I can tell myself doesn't matter, I'll do it tomorrow. Today I can choose to journal, or I can choose not to. Today I can choose to drink my water, or I can choose to be
    dehydrated. Today I can choose to stay in my points range, or I can choose to hinder my goals. Today I can choose to be more active, or I can choose to take the easy way. Today I can choose to be motivated, or I can choose to tell myself "I can't." Today I can choose success. IT IS MY CHOICE."
