One of my Spark friends had this on his status (4/28/2016) -- THENEWMICHAEL "When it comes to measuring progress, the mirror is a better instrument than the scale."
WOW!!! That is something we all need to take to heart!

JOHAL52 is still in a holding pattern over life. But that's okay--sometimes holding patterns can lead to growth--it's up to me :) -- Her status for 2Aug11 -- A small comment that speaks volumes.

CATINCJ Never set your goals at some else's pace or evaluate your performance by someone else's standards. Added 2May13 from her feed that day.

Fitness Minutes: 75,874

My Goals:
To exercise more, get more toned, and get to a healthier weight. I would like to stave off any joint problems in legs and hips.

Another goal which I have is to get rid of a lot of the "stuff" I possess, way more than I need to have.

My Program:
Portion Control - although I haven't been real successful in doing this, I am more aware of what portions are and try to stick with them most of the time.

I use the nutrition tracker and follow no particular weight loss diet, just try to get more freggies, less carbs and fat. I have been customizing the "my favorites" list to include the foods I use the most. I have been also making use of the exercise tracker, getting at least 10 minutes of cardio every day. I try to do some strength trainig 3 days a week.

Personal Information:
I live in Northeastern Montana. I work more than full time at a desk job. I spend way too much time on the computer...

Jan, 2016 -- All of this still holds true.

Other Information:
Am a cat person. Like to knit, sew, quilt, garden -- but don't seem to get much of them done.

2/24/2013 -- Several fiber craft people have been meeting during lunch hour once a week to work on projects, visit, and show off our latest projects. We also share techniques when someone has a problem with their project. Some are also starting into spinning using drop spindles.

    Are you coming on Thursday? I usually leave for the fields by 4:30 so 3-4 is kind of my busy time but I'd make a special attempt to meet up for a bit! Let me look through my spark mails to see if I can find your phone #. OR, I'm usually back in Havre about 7? That would work better for me but I'll be stinky from wheat dust and sweat!! I'm such a wuss I hoped the rain from Tues would give us rain day on Wed but Havre got it and not the farms near Kremlin!!

    “If you’re struggling, you deserve to make self-care a priority. Whether that means lying in bed all day, eating comfort food, putting off homework, crying, sleeping, rescheduling plans, finding an escape through a good book, watching your favorite tv show, or doing nothing at all — give yourself permission to put your healing first. Quiet the voice telling you to do more and be more, and today, whatever you do, let it be enough. Feel your feelings, breathe, and be gentle with yourself. Acknowledge that you’re doing the best you can to cope and survive. And trust that during this time of struggle, it’s enough.”

    Started Tuesday! I take out a hot meal in the evening and pack lunches for Nick to pick up on his way out to whereever they are cutting. He lives in Havre too. Some times I have to drive out and drop off lunch but it's no biggie. Actually easier because of all the ice and beverages I have to haul so two trips is better for me but they all think it's too much. Yeah, it's about 35 miles???? Hello??? This is MT??

    Fed the Indian Tacos tonight that I got at the senior center since that is one of their fund raisers during the fair-except they do it at the center now because they couldn't get enough volunteers to man the booth for the required noon to midnight anymore. So it's a great choice since it supports a good cause and also means I didn't have to slave over a hot stove. Did bake a blueberry pie but that was early morning.

    Just as I was packing up the car yesterday we got pounding rain. Had quit about 3 miles later when I drove past WalMart and then even the ground was dry before Kremlin. We were harvesting north of Gildford and they said no rain at all but had watched the big storm clouds move through really fast. Weather warnings were for Box Elder and Big Sandy and Kennilworth and then headed to Blaine County. Think it's supposed to cool down on Sat but it's been breezy so not so bad...and the breeze at least keeps the bugs away. We have been invaded in our neighborhood with 3 kinds of wasps. It's horrifying out in the yard on a hot no-wind day!!

    More in a couple of daze. Just trying to get back into the swing of this...takes me a few daze to get back into the rhythm. Took my mom out tonite to see this year's winter wheat. It's between waist and shoulder high in some places? Amazing stuff...and 2 neighbor farms are growing lentils and some kind of peas so will be interesting to see how they harvest those. Bet there will be a few days break between winter wheat and spring wheat. Lots of the spring looks pretty green!

    "Never neglect the little things. Never skimp on that extra effort, that additional few minutes, that soft word of praise or thanks, that delivery of the very best that you can do. It does not matter what others think, it is of prime importance, however, what you think about you. You can never do your best, which should always be your trademark, if you are cutting corners and shirking responsibilities. You are special. Act it. Never neglect the little things.”
