It has really helped me trim up, and kept me from getting depressed. My favorite exercises are walking/running and Callenetics. I like Callentics because it is almost like relaxing into fitness, and it is very gentle. As I have been seriously working on my cardio-exercise and sleeping better, my energy ...
I teach English as a Second Language at Southern Utah University. I also enjoy gardening, music, reading, writing, and walking my dog. I am amazed at what a difference exercise has made for me. It has really helped me trim up, and kept me from getting depressed. My favorite exercises are walking/running and Callenetics. I like Callentics because it is almost like relaxing into fitness, and it is very gentle. As I have been seriously working on my cardio-exercise and sleeping better, my energy and mood levels have been rising. My dog, Shadow, is a great walking partner, and is really into this walk run thing, which is a great motivator for me. I have really been enjoying using the SparkPeople website.

"Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice.
The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING.
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE."
-Lorna Jane

For I have come to have much joy and comfort in your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you ~ Philemon 1:7.

I rejoice over you. As I prepare to close out my account with Spark People on the 12th, I want you to know that God has used you to refresh my heart and I have found much joy and comfort in your loving ways and caring presence. You will be in my heart and in my prayers as I take up my cross daily to follow Jesus. Keep up the good work, beloved. God bless you on your way.

Blessings and emoticon

"Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long.
Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals.
No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders.
How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come."
-Og Mandino
