My goal is the same as most others live a long healthy life! SP has proven to be a great tool in the past. Interactive challenges, specifically group/team goals were great motivators.

I have let my home & family life interfere with taking good care of 'me' & it shows... no ones fault but my own! Having moved changed my routine & I tossed in the towel. That was almost 5yrs ago...& I while I have not gained ALL the weight I lost back, I feel like crud. NOT acceptable! I do walk/hike/bike occasionally...but not enough to get the heartrate going like I need to. UG...

Going to lurk around & see if there are any team challenges out there I can join in on. Hoping something starting soon... Like the beginning of May.

On aside note...I have a newer dog (1yr old) whom is extremely high energy. I need to get in shape to keep up with him, LOL! Planning on biking & hiking with him this summer & need to build my endurance so I don't do a face-plant on the bike ;-)

Tone muscles, enduring strength, a relatively flat belly, along with health & energy are my goals...I'm not asking too much, am I? I hope not!

    emoticon Great to see your Spark Friend, LIQUEURLADY as The MOTIVATOR OF THE DAY. What an honor for her. emoticon

    I was an "older mom" as well. I got married at 19, but we didn't have our first child until I was 25 & I stayed working until I was 34 & then had our 2nd. I stayed home and had my other 3 at 37, 39, 41. When some kid would make a comment to my kids about how old I was, I'd ALWAYS remind my children that I could have had kids when I was in my 20s, but WHO WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN BORN? Oh, they knew the answer, "ME". So, they didn't care that I was an "old Mom."

    Stopping by to say "hi " to an old spark friend. I laughed when I ready you spark status. It does get better but it definitely takes a while. Hang in there :)
