Adventures in Living ... Resuming in 2013

Life is one of the greatest adventures given to each one of us ... enjoy every day as much as you can ... learn to choose the things that will make you the best you can be.

My first year with SparkPeople (2008) was a success! I did manage to lose 35 pounds, Now it is 5 years later I've retired, and have decided to restart the program. I'm hoping the extra time on my hands will help me to visit daily, and the support will from teammates will help keep me on track.

Hi! No, there doesn't seem to be much happening on the Erie Sparkers team right now. Several people have expressed interest in getting together to work out, but no one has really committed to anything.

I'm not sure if the Passport is going to happen again this summer. Even if it isn't an official event, I'm hoping to hit all of the parks this summer anyway. You can check out the website http://www.letsmoveoutside.org/

Have a great day!

Where do you find chick peas in a grocery store? Today I looked in the canned vegetable section and didn't see anything. emoticon

You made a comment that you make hummus, would you mind sharing your recipe? Yours sound good with the pepper and tomato. emoticon

Hi Lynn, thanks for stopping by to say "hello" on my page~

I had my weekly weigh-in last night, was really hoping for a 3 lb. loss for the week, but I missed it by .2 lbs. still, 2.8 is close enough. I'm shooting for 2 lbs. a week, that's my goal. I've lost 12 lbs. so far in 2013.

I joined the "Eat Better, Feel Fitter" Challenge 3 weeks ago, I start my 4th week tomorrow. The challenge is to try and eat more veggies and fruits daily. Check it out!

I see on your page you are retired. What kind of job did you retire from? I work in Law Enforcement (25 years) and I'm looking forward to retiring in a few years. I'm "eligible to retire" now, but I'm too far away in age to get medicare and SS.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Lawanda

It's sunny and mild temps in Atlanta, Georgia today!!
