One of my Spark friends had this on his status (4/28/2016) -- THENEWMICHAEL "When it comes to measuring progress, the mirror is a better instrument than the scale."
WOW!!! That is something we all need to take to heart!

JOHAL52 is still in a holding pattern over life. But that's okay--sometimes holding patterns can lead to growth--it's up to me :) -- Her status for 2Aug11 -- A small comment that speaks volumes.

CATINCJ Never set your goals at some else's pace or evaluate your performance by someone else's standards. Added 2May13 from her feed that day.

Member Since: 8/24/2009

Fitness Minutes: 82,848

My Goals:
To exercise more, get more toned, and get to a healthier weight. I would like to stave off any joint problems in legs and hips.

Another goal which I have is to get rid of a lot of the "stuff" I possess, way more than I need to have.

My Program:
Portion Control - although I haven't been real successful in doing this, I am more aware of what portions are and try to stick with them most of the time.

I use the nutrition tracker and follow no particular weight loss diet, just try to get more freggies, less carbs and fat. I have been customizing the "my favorites" list to include the foods I use the most. I have been also making use of the exercise tracker, getting at least 10 minutes of cardio every day. I try to do some strength trainig 3 days a week.

Personal Information:
I live in Northeastern Montana. I work more than full time at a desk job. I spend way too much time on the computer...

Jan, 2016 -- All of this still holds true.

Other Information:
Am a cat person. Like to knit, sew, quilt, garden -- but don't seem to get much of them done.

2/24/2013 -- Several fiber craft people have been meeting during lunch hour once a week to work on projects, visit, and show off our latest projects. We also share techniques when someone has a problem with their project. Some are also starting into spinning using drop spindles.

    Funny you asked. Royce can run on the treadmill. I will have to post a picture this week.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving a lovely comment. Hope your Easter has been good too. We went for a drive today and then enjoyed the sunshine at home. This morning I coloured just two eggs for our traditional Polish sharing at breakfast.

    Whatever you give away today or think or say or do
    Will multiply about tenfold and then return to you;
    It may not come immediately, nor from the obvious source,
    But the law applies unfailingly, through some invisible source.
    Whatever you feel about another, be it love or hate or passion,
    Will surely bounce right back to you in some clear (or secret) fashion;
    If you speak about some person a word of praise or two,
    Soon tens of other people will speak kind words of you.
    Our thoughts are broadcasts of the soul, not secrets of the brain;
    Kind ones bring us happiness petty ones, untold pain;
    Giving works as surely as reflections in a mirror —
    If hate you send, hate you'll get back, but loving brings love nearer.
    Remember as you start this day, and duty crowds your mind,
    That kindness comes so quickly back to those who first are kind;
    Let that thought and this one direct us through each day —
    The only things we ever keep are the things we give away.

    Easter needs a garden where its peace and joy may grow, like daffodils that brightly bloom above the melting snow. So find a little time each day that you can set apart to cultivate some flowers in the garden of your heart. And then, throughout the busy days your happy heart will sing. And to the people that you meet, you'll be a breath of spring!

    Wishing you quiet moments to relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds think about the blessings in your life and feel renewed by the promise of Spring.

    *Ran out to WalMart just before 7 p.m. Thunder, then lightning and more thunder and then the skies just opened up and the rain came pounding down! Was up to 78 and the sky was good old Montana blue at 5 when I left work? Just can't figure it out. A really strange year!
