Hello SparkFriends! If you are interested in learning more about the history of SparkPeople and how we can make it free, here is an article that talks about this .

Please note: Since we have millions of members, unfortunately I can't answer SparkMails that ask questions about someone's program or about site features. Please ask these on the message boards and you're likely to get better support than I could give.

I love to see so many people using SparkPeople to reach all types of goals. Each new success story we see motivates us to keep making the site better. Thanks to all of you - and our great team - SparkPeople has turned into a grassroots movement that is spreading around the world!

SparkCheers!

Member Since: 11/19/2001

SparkPoints: 56,607

Fitness Minutes: 44,428

My Goals:
1) Working on my new and improved fitness streak! I'm currently at 170 days, headed towards 200 if I can! (remember, this isn't extreme - I only need 10 minutes to keep the streak alive)



2) Make SparkPeople into a company that helps millions of people (I'm the Founder and CEO of the company and am passionate about helping people reach their goals!).

My Program:
I do a well-rounded fitness program that I can fit into a very hectic lifestyle (having a young company and 2 young boys is challenging!) - most of my fitness program can be done at home. This includes cardio, strength (mostly pushups, crunches, lunges, body squats, and other body weight exercises), sprints and jump rope, stretching, and tennis-specific practice.

My wife helps me eat fairly healthy and I help motivate her on fitness - we're a good team!

Personal Information:
I live with my wonderful wife Karina in the San Francisco Bay Area (even though SparkPeople is headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio and that will always be my hometown).

Other Information:
My wife Karina and I have 2 young and active boys. I love seeing them mimic my exercise. Some of our best quality time is exercising together, they love exercising - especially bouncing on a mini-trampoline.

Bula (hello) Chris,

I try to read everything that you write or post, and I admire you for the way that you try to motivate others like me. I have been on and off SparkPeople for a couple of years now. I live on a small South Pacific Island island where my people are not really into the whole idea of exercise. I shouldn't blame that on my lack of exercise but I just can't seem to stay on schedule. I have 4 kids and I'm a full time lawyer for the government here and apart from there being no facilities for exercise, I just lack the drive.
How does one stay on track? For 2015, I want to be able to start something and continue it till I actually see results.
Here's hoping.
Una

I just read this poem & felt it too good not to share on this CHRISTmas Eve! God bless!

{This is another version of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' }


'Twas the night before Jesus came
and all through the house
Not a creature was praying,
Not one in the house.
Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

The children were dressing to crawl into bed.
Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.

When out of the East there arose such a clatter.
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!

The light of His face made me cover my head
It was Jesus! returning just like He had said.
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

In the Book of Life which He held in His hand
Was written the name of every saved man.
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame.

The people whose names had been written with love
He gathered to take to His Father above.
With those who were ready He rose without a sound.
While all the rest were left standing around.

I fell to my knees, but it was too late;
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

In the words of this poem the meaning is clear;
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There's only one life and when comes the last call
We'll find that the Bible was true after all!


(by Reverend Edward M. Gionest, Sr.)

To those who receive Him, He gives the power to become the sons of God, even to those that believe on his name. Repent and declare with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved.
