When they were babies....
Snow in El Paso...yes, deserts can have snow...left it all at 5 AM to travel back home.

Hey there... from Texas,
I have been with SP for a few years but really got a jump-start from swimsuit bootcamp. I hit the half-century mark age-wise this past April (08), and I want to keep my body from deteriorating. I also want my family to become more atuned to health and fitness...even if it is by osmosis.
SP has the best videos and exercises to fit in anytime. You don't have to waste time with traveling to a gym, and you can split your workouts in any way that works. What a deal!
Now that our family has been working out on the Wii Fit, our home has become an even better gym. I can't wait until they come out with something else similar to Wii Fit.
I have been discovering so much more on Spark. I have the Spark page as part of my home page which helps me build my days closer to a healthy lifetyle.
For now, adios...and best of luck with finding the treaures hidden in Spark People.
My goals are to use portion control, develop food constraint at buffet-style or potluck meaks, to maintain daily exercise even if it is not substantial, and to eat a healthy diet in spite what my family eats.
Breakfast and lunch on my own are small portions of healthy food, when I work out I use weights and use SP videos. I am working on drinking enough water, and I constantly look for red meat substitutions.
I am originally from El Paso (desert Southwest) but right now my husband, kids, and I are stuck living in a suburb of Houston. My brothers, sisters, and mom are spead from Illinois, El Paso, and California.
At a high school assembly, I remember seeing a 60-year-old woman walking on her hands, and I told myself I wanted to be in that shape when I was that age.

Here’s a little tidbit you may or may not know about Prebiotics:
It’s actually considered a ‘slimming supplement’! According to the latest Canadian research – overweight adults who took a prebiotic supplement lost an average of 2 pounds over 12 weeks, compared with those on a placebo.
The recommended intake is to try to get 4 to 20 grams a day of foods such as garlic, onions, artichokes and fortified yogurt or supplements.
The health bonus is that prebiotics stimulate the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut to regulate digestion.
I hope you have a really great rest of the week and a super weekend!

The year is being swallowed up by time at a rapid rate and I’m caught in the vortex of its ever swirling center. Ever feel that way?
I read something interesting in the latest issue of one of the health publications I receive that I thought note worthy to share:
If you take an herbal supplement, be sure to let your health care provider know.
I’m all about natural supplements, but I’m careful about which ones I take and the reputation of the company that makes them. Labels can be misleading. Half of the herbal products sold online erroneously and illegally claim to prevent, treat, diagnose or cure specific diseases.
Moreover; it is estimated that up to 70% of patients don’t report their herbal supplement use to their doctors. This is a mistake because some herbs can present serious health risks; for example, some herbs can thin the blood or interact with medications.

OK we can do this together we can achieve anything!!!!!Come on everyone pull up those boot straps and get on BOARD!!!!
YOURS TO BUILD
An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. He told his employer of his plans to the the construction business and live a more leisurely life with his family.
The contractor was sorry to see his good worker go and asked if he could built just one more house as a personal favour. The carpenter said YES, but in time it was easy to see that his heart wasn't in his work. He resorted to shoddy workmanship and used inferior materials. Not a great way to end a dedicated career.
When the work was done, the employer came to inspect the house. He handed the front door key to the carpenter. "This is your house," he said, "My gift to you." The old carpenter was shocked!
What a shame! If he had only known he was building his own house, he would have done it all so differently. So it is with us. WE BUILD OUR LIVES, A DAY AT A TIME, often putting less than our best into the building. Then we realize we have to live in the house we have built. If we could do it over, we'd do it much differently. But we can't go back , we can only go forward.
YOU ARE THE CARPENTER. Each day you hammer a nail, place a board, or erect a wall. (Choose the thoughts you think, the people you associate with, the food/drink to regenerate your body) Life is a do it yourself project. Your attitudes and the choices you make today build the house you live in.
BUILT WISELY!!!!!! START BUILDING TODAY, THE HOUSE YOU WANT TO LIVE IN TOMORROW.
