This is 2014 and time for some new Goals, As I age, this year I turn 74 so I'm just trying to keep my body healthy, moving and full of energy.

Basically, I want to do 3 days of Strength exercise and two days of Carido. I have to walk at least 30 minutes a day on the treadmill. Walking my dog in a quick stride, about 2.5 or 3 speed. I'm going to be doing a video exercise that will be enjoyable and helpful on keeping my body moving and giving me more spirit in moving faster. I really hate to be labeled and old person. I know I have some new wrinkles on my face, and some grey hair, but I sure don't want to be slow, I know with time my body will slow down as I'm sure it will, but I will keep it moving and trying to be strong, as long as I can. Thanks to all of you that send me encourangement. I wish you well and hope that you all reach your goals, that you have set for this year.

Sparks always has some interesting suggestion and articles with different Helps and aids. I love to follow their exercise plans that they offer. I'm getting use to the new formats. We all have to make changes in our life.

If you are truly working the Sparks Program, I would love to have you as a friend and hear how you are doing. Just let me know.

Thanks. Virginia

Received your Spark Goodie, thank you. I've learned to laugh as I stumble through the Coach Nicole DVD's. Sticking with it seems to be the key and as your body adapts and changes it does get easier.

I saw a quote about age that I like: "Forget your age and live your life"

THANK YOU for being a positive example of a beautiful woman in her 74th year.

All the best of health, happiness and hope to you this day!
