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

    I run.....
    I'm slower than a herd of turtles,
    stampeding through peanut butter...
    But...I run

    "A house becomes a home when you can write "I love you" on the furniture."
    I used to spend at least 8 hours every weekend making sure things
    were just perfect "in case someone came over" Finally I realized one day
    that no-one came over; they were all out living life and having fun!
    NOW, when people visit, I don't have to explain the "condition" of my home.
    They are more interested in hearing about the things I've been doing
    while I was away living life and having fun.
    If you haven't figured this out yet, please heed this advice.
    Life is short. Enjoy it!

    Dust if you must....... but wouldn't it be better to paint a picture or write a letter, bake cookies or a cake and lick the spoon or plant a seed, ponder the difference between want and need?!
    Dust if you must, but there's not much time . . .. . with rivers to swim and mountains to climb, music to hear and books to read, friends to cherish and life to lead.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Dust if you must, but the world's out there with the sun in your eyes,
    the wind in your hair, a flutter of snow, a shower of rain.
    This day will not come around, again.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Dust if you must, but bear in mind, old age will come and it's not kind. .. . ..
    And when you go - and go you must - you, yourself will make more dust!
    It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived ...
    and remember, a layer of dust protects the wood beneath it.
