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: 85,867

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.

    Thank you for the Welcome back Moonchaser, I actually have not been outside to see the smoke or smell it.. I've kind of been being a shut in again. emoticon My husband said it's all around us though.. and this morning I heard there's a new fire in Glacier.. it's been such a dry season they're popping up all over.. even a couple here in town.. or near town. We need God to send the rain to put them out.. the one over my Lewistown sounded the worse.. but then thats because I have an aunt living over there in Winnet! Hey, lets keep at each other, I need all the help [encouragement] I can get! emoticon

    In the middle of our busy lives
    it can be easy to forget to say
    two little words
    Thank you for all the ways you
    make Spark Life better
    the ones that seem small and make you wonder
    if anyone notices (I do).
    And the big ones that show the world
    what a truly amazing heart you have (you do!)

    "Your thoughtfulness has given me great joy and encouragement"

    thank you. So sorry to hear about your son. And thanks for your words. I was really devastated when my dad died 4 years ago. My mom has been ill (dementia and other things) for a long time so have been grieving a lot for her over that time. It still is hard.
