Haku/Welcome & Hello!
It's my goal to be well and fit; I would love to lose weight, but my bigger aim is to keep myself well. I am trying to be more active, and am working on keeping fresh, local foods around. I want to care for myself, so that I in turn can care for others-it all starts from within. I do alternate day fasting/day up day down supplemented with healthy foods on the up days. I am a deeply spiritual person, and this truly contributes to my wellness, the ability to practice my traditional spiritual practices keeps me strong, and in balance.
I want to be able to walk along a beach easily, run with my kids, teach my kids how to eat properly themselves, and walk in nature often.
Blessings to you!
To be well
To care for myself
care for others
Eat locally, freshly

Ok, you've been here awhile, but my standard welcome apparently missed you the first time you logged in, and I found you on the recently re-active page.
I just stopped on your page to say "HI" and welcome you to Spark. You're in the right place to reach your goals, but promise that you'll stop in every day and log your water, log your veggies and fruit, log your food, log your exercise, and read, and post, and log your water, and write on someone’s page, and read some more, and blog, and log your water, and LEARN that you are not alone, and we're all right here with you! Did I mention that you should log your water?
WHEW! Ok, I know you're overwhelmed getting to know this site, but use those buttons up there, especially the MY TRACKERS drop down list, and then either the START or MY SPARKPOINTS. Both of these helped me learn about the site, gain momentum and meet new friends.
Speaking of meeting new friends, this place is like a cocktail party. If you stand in the corner, you won't have as much fun. Make eye contact (or in this place, leave a message on someone's page, or add your opinion to the bazillion conversations going on) to say HI, and you'll meet new friends quick. Oh, yeah, WRITE A BLOG, let me know when you’ve posted it, and keep them coming! It’s the catchy title that brings folks to your page and you'll meet new friends even faster!
Stick around and come back every day! I was here, and left, and came back when I got serious, and I'm so glad I did. Don't procrastinate like I did, dig in now while you're here!
Coming here every day adds a great level of support and accountability. Explore, learn, and never be afraid to reach out for help (meaning: post on the OTHER person’s page, not on your own). We're all in this together! Stop by at my page and introduce yourself around to some of my friends too! You'll be glad you did!
Doing it together, success is inevitable!
