Since this is a new year, I thought it would be a good time to update my page! Welcome! I love this page! It's a place that gives me the opportunity to meet Sparkers who, like me, are changing their lives one day at a time. A place for me to receive the motivation and encouragement I need to keep going on my journey. A place that encourages me to motivate others to reach their goals. I hope this page is as inspirational to you as it is to me! Please come back often to visit!

A little info about me....my name is Laura. I am 60 years young, a wife, mother and grandmother. My hobbies are gardening, jewelry making and crocheting. I love nature and enjoy spending as much time as possible outdoors. I love animals and am "mom" to a 2 yr old Peke-a-Pap and a 2 year old Bengal/Tabby cat.

The following poem about success is a favorite of mine so I thought I would share it.

Success is not a race, be patient.
Success leads to success.
Success is always a work in progress.
Success doesn't come to you--you go to it.
Success is a journey, not a destination. Focus on the process.
Some people dream about success... while others wake up and work hard at it.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who try-and keep trying.
Everyday is a good day to SUCCEED!
If at first you don't succeed-try, try again


Member Since: 7/9/2011

My Goals:
1) 4-8 glasses of water.
2) 3 healthy meals
3) Stay within my daily WW points.
4) Take all prescribed meds/supplements.
5) Track all foods
6) Track fitness
7) Walk at least 10,000 steps each day.
8) Use spark tools to my
advantage and
connect with teams
and members.



My Program:
Keep a daily diary. Be honest and accountable for each day's events. Track everything I eat and watch my portion sizes. Concentrate on eating more veggies and fruits and drink more water. Set small, realistic goals then work to achieve and build on them. Always remember that "My life tomorrow will be the result of my attitudes and the choices I make today."



Personal Information:
In Oct 2011 my husband retired after putting in 30 years as a firefighter/EMT. We decided we needed a change so we sold our house on the Massachusetts seacoast and bought one in a small rural town in the Berkshires. We love it here. Life moves slower and we are surrounded by beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife.


Other Information:
"Our lives improve only when we take chances... and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves." ~ Walter Anderson

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon September emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    September brings fall, with the leaves falling, changing to colors of red,
    orange, gold, yellow, and brown. It brings cooler temperatures, shorter days,
    as we start to wear long-sleeved shirts, bring out the sweatshirts we've had
    packed away for months, and the jackets we wished we did not have to wear
    for awhile. We smell fall in the air, as we the pick the vegetables from
    the gardens, & the plants we bring in before the frost.
    We see flocks of geese traveling to warmer weather, and enjoy watching
    the children playing in the leaves, as they laugh, smile, & have fun.

    Most of us try to avoid hills, but what's so good about flat?
    Think about it..flat tires, flat hair, flat returns, and -the ultimate-flat-lining.
    Life happens on the hills. They're opportunities to prove to yourself that
    you're stronger than you ever imagined. If you never attempt the ascent,
    you will never know the the thrill of swooshing down the other side.

    It will take time, effort, blood, sweat, & tears. But I will get there.

    I like your Wolf Totem profile image. (I saw it on JimA64's page.) I have been doing bead work and making regalia - something I've never tried before. I know that I am part native, a tribe form Mexico which has been decimated, and my wife is half Cherokee. We each hope to have regalia ready for next year, and attend some pow wows.

    Laughing hysterically, dancing your heart out, star gazing, shopping,
    going to the beach, listening to the rain, ice-cream on a hot day,
    feeling wanted, personal jokes, compliments, receiving text messages,
    late night phone calls, Christmas, hugs, kisses, good dreams, holidays, summer,
    knowing someone misses you, knowing someone is thinking of you,
    good hair days, your first kiss, lying on the grass starring into the sky,
    seeing a shooting star, running into an old friend, jumping into a warm bed
    on a cold night, talking for hours about absolutely nothing, looking back on the laughs, receiving presents, giving presents, birthdays, weekends, sleeping in,
    air conditioning when it's hot, being full of energy, being home alone,
    seeing your spouse/friend, watching someone do something stupid,
    and then thinking no one saw, finding $5 on the ground, nice smelling perfume/cologne,,
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    bubble baths, reading a good book, watching the sun come up,
    jumping on a trampoline, sitting in front of the fire on a cold evening,
    falling in love, smell of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies,
    singing into your hairbrush in your room, turning up your stereo as loud as it will go,
    being so happy it makes you cry, warm nights, finally completing something
    you started a long time ago, achieving a long time goal.
