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

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

    “Perhaps the greatest charity comes when we are kind to each other,
    when we don't judge or categorize someone else,
    when we simply give each other the benefit of the doubt or remain quiet.
    Charity is accepting someone's differences, weaknesses, and shortcomings;
    having patience with someone who has let us down;
    or resisting the impulse to become offended
    when someone doesn't handle something the way we might have hoped.
    Charity is refusing to take advantage of another's weakness
    and being willing to forgive someone who has hurt us.
    Charity is expecting the best of each other."
    ~ Elder Martin J. Ashton ~

    ~~~}{~~~}{~~~ I GRIEVE TODAY~~~}{~~~}{~~~

    "I grieve today for the times I have loved so much
    ---that I forgot about myself and my own needs.
    I grieve today for giving so much and forgetting
    ---that I should keep a little bit back just for me.
    I grieve today for getting so caught up in helping others
    ---that I overlooked I needed a little help as well.
    I grieve today for thinking I could just do it all, denying
    ---that I also have my limits. And sometimes having limitations is a holy thing.
    I grieve today & pray for the ones who have lost their lives,
    ---their loved ones and those who are hurting.
    ~S. C. Lourie ~
