BREAST CANCER AWARENESS WEEK/MONTH.
Oct./2010-Tho not a "pink" person, I've changed my page color in honor of this imp. issue & it's survivors. My way of showing support this month, tho I don't have cancer myself.
July/2010 - Well, I'm finally getting to update this page, as it's my 1 yr. Anniversary on SP this month. WooHoo!!
I'm please to say that I am NOT a couch potato anymore! I exercise every day. I LUV the pool and walk a lot. Even do strength training all week long. So, that's my steps forward...
On the food front, it's steps backward. Tho I'm eating healthier, I still eat too much...way TOO MUCH (LOL)! So, I go over my calorie allowance consistently. That's my big goal for this year, to stay within my allowance consistently.
SP has been GREAT! this year. I started out slowly last July, and built 'til I'm getting awards for attendance and consistency. WooHoo! I love racking up the points! and buying Goodies for myself and others. LOL
The rest of my life is pretty much the same. I do a lot at my Church and am starting a job caring for a man just out of a nursing home. I'm depending on SP to help me stay motivated and focused, so I can reach my goal this year.
July/2009 -I've been on every diet and have lost and regained weight time and again. Now my health in involved as I have diabetes, so it's not just a matter of my clothes not fitting and wanting to look good. My current goal is modest, only 8 pounds over the next month. Help!
I'm retired and living the good life in Florida. I thank God every day for this wonderful life I have by much volunteering at my Church. Getting down to my goal weight would make me more comfortable on my feet during these activities.
I definitely would like to lose weight...100 lbs.
Keep increasing cardio and strength training until I reach recommended amounts.
Food: the SP caloried guidelines: less than 1700 calories/day.
Cardio: 20 min.6x/wk
Strength: 3x/wk, working up to acceptable sets & reps.
Flexibility: Stretch after each session above & start some Yoga.
8 glasses of water/day
55 Spark Points/day---for motivation & fun.
S, F, 65, no children, no pets, no smoking (LOL)
I grew up on Long Island, NY and worked the last 20 years in NYC...so I'm a real NewYorker. But in between I lived in Vermont, N. Dakota, and California. Now, I'm in Florida...retired.
Who would have thunk, but in this life I'm a "church lady." All my activities revolve around my Church and my trust in in the Lord to see me through, even this constant struggle with my weight. I'm involved in two main projects: a Literacy program to teach English to people whose first language is not English, and we cook dinner for a homeless camp of 300 people once a month.
Secrets of Success
A friend is like a shade tree
Beside a summer way.
A friend is like the sunshine
That makes a perfect day.
A friend is like a flower
That's worn close to the heart.
A friend is like a treasure
With which one will not part.

but to someone else, you may be the world.

The Gift Of Knowing You
There are gifts of many treasures
For both the young and old,
From the tiniest little trinkets
To great boxes filled with gold.
But, put them all together
And they could not stand in lieu,
Of the greatest gift of all
The gift of knowing you.
When your times are filled with troubles
Sadness, grief, or even doubt,
When all those things you planned on
Just aren't turning out.
Just turn and look behind you
From the place at which you stand,
And look for me through the shadows
And reach out for my hand.
I will lift from you your burden
And cry for you your tears,
Bear the pain of all your sorrows
Though it may be for a thousand years.
For in the end I would be happy
To have helped you start anew,
It's a small price to pay
For the gift of knowing you.

I pray you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.
I pray you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.
I pray you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.
I pray you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.
I pray you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I pray you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I pray you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.

There is a quality about you
That touches me deep in my heart
This quality is so special
It sets you quite apart
You're a kind and generous person
Who can brighten up my day
Bringing much joy to my life
With your kind and thoughtful ways
Thank you for all you do
And all that you've done
Too numerous to mention
Thanks for each one

Drain the colour from the rainbow,
Let the stars tumble from the sky,
Mute the bird’s morning chorus,
Steal the beauty from the flowers.
All these and more I’d sacrifice,
And surely would survive.
But friendship . . . .
Not a moment could I bare,
To be without the friends I love.
For they are life’s true wonders,
Filling my heart, my soul, my senses.
With all the colours of happiness,
With every sight and sound of joy.
