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 59 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 recently rescued and adopted a Peke-a-Pap puppy who will be a year old in February 2015 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

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 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 BITS OF THOUGHT ABOUT PARKING emoticon emoticon emoticon

"Always look at the brighter side of things..whenever a car is stolen, it creates another parking place"

"One of the best bargains you can get these days is parking what's left on the other fellow's dime"

"A hick town is where you can park as long as you want to, but don't want to."

"Once it was ambition that kept people on the move. Now it's NO PARKING signs.

Weekends are wonderful!!!! But, they can also be a time for us to be challenged by events and situations that can sabotage our desires to live a healthy lifestyle. Here are some tips to help you have a healthier weekend:

**Moderate sugary and alcohol drinks. Many people fail to realize a good portion of their caloric intake comes from beverages. Whether sports drinks or sodas, sugary beverages do little to satisfy and could cause you to eat more. A John Hopkins University study revealed that individuals lost more weight over 5 months by eliminating calories from beverages rather than solid foods.

**Start a meal with salad or broth. Instead of diving right into the main course, begin your meal with a low-fat soup or salad. But pass on creamy soups or salads topped with heavy dressings. Eating the first course reduces the amount of food you will eat during the main course.

Take care emoticon and stay fit emoticon

HAVE AN AWESOME WEEKEND!!!
