Following the path with heart.

'Look at every path closely and deliberately, then ask ourselves this crucial question: Does this path have a heart? If it does, then the path is good. If it doesn't, it is of no use."
(Juan Matus, from Carlos Castaneda's 'A Separate Reality'.)

Get fit (130-135 range) by April 13 (vacation!)

I've been enjoying our Red, White and Blue team competition. It's been helping me stay on track.

I know what you mean about feeling like your online quite a bit, me too. I find the SparkPeople application for my phone useful because of this. I can track food whilst im at work, or add blogs whilst i'm travelling. I think sparkpeople is the best place for motivation! :) My family are great, but sometimes i don't feel like they fully understand what i'm trying to achieve. They see it as a diet, not a lifestyle change.

I love the food tracker feature most because you are able to visually see where your calories are coming from, and what areas you could change. More protein, less fat for example. Also, i didn't realise just how quickly calories could add up before I joined. The articles are great too :) I get lost in them a bit too much sometimes though! haha

What is your favourite feature? :)

Hope your having a great weekend emoticon

The wedding shower was fun, if dangerous.... we had 16 cupcakes to taste test, and 10 wines..... happy party!
