    This is from the Cleveland Clinic and I thought it was so good I had to copy and share with my Spark Friends!

    "What has your body done for you lately? A whole lot, actually! Focusing on function, not form, can encourage healthy habits.
    Daily Dose
    Loving your body and treating it well — with nutritious food, regular exercise and enough sleep — go hand in hand. Understanding your thoughts and feelings about your body can be useful, especially since that mirror, mirror on the wall can be the most fickle of them all. emoticon The media messages we take in, from Facebook to advertising, as well as other people’s opinions, can strongly sway how we view our bodies. Create a wellspring of inside-out body love by taking a trip outside the appearance paradigm. Instead of focusing on what your body looks like, focus on what it does for you. Perhaps it allows you to run around with your kids or grandkids, walk up stairs, or sit on your porch and wave to neighbors. Maybe it supports you while walking, playing tennis or climbing mountains. emoticon emoticon emoticon Consider your senses: Does your body let you see sunsets, listen to music and laughter, and smell fir trees? Your body, whatever its shape, size or condition, allows you to live your life. Make a list of all the things your body does in a day, and be especially sure to include those little things you used to take for granted. Then spend time appreciating it — you’ll be even more motivated to eat well, move regularly and keep up the other habits that contribute to a strong and healthy you!"

    Welcome to the 12 Weeks to Walking Team. It's a very diverse group from all over the world! Some can't walk 100 steps and some are doing 5K Walks. Look over the LINKS with the 3 levels, Best Foot Forward, Beginner and Intermediate and decide where you should begin. Print off the schedule in the level you choose and just start walking with us.

    We'll be waiting to learn all about what you see as you walk along on this journey with us!! We want to hear all about what you see and hear where you walk. We get lots of weather reports and spring flower sightings. Those things are posted in the "Walking with Purpose" thread. Hope you'll join in the geography lesson!
    Please let us know if there is anything at all that we can do for you! We hope you'll be active in posting and blogging. Glad to have you along on this journey! Please stop by "Introduce Yourself to the Team" thread and introduce yourself! "General Chatting" is self-explanatory! and you can check out the "Dance" thread for some funny dance videos for extra fitness for days you aren't walking...or book reviews I think you'll find we're a rather wild and crazy bunch...and we have a lot of fun!! Please don't open new topics or threads. Just post those new ideas in the General Chat thread. Thanks.

    “Today stretches ahead of you waiting to be shaped.
    You are the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.
    What today will be like is up to you.”
