This past month has been extremely busy for me. As many of you know I chose to lead a Spark's Class team... Oct.11-17/09. This has been a wonderful experience and one I'll never forget. Introducing new members to the great world of Sparks has been alot of fun, but overwelming.
It's kept me very busy, especially where I have a full time job also. So now I get to the point of this blog. It's time to refocus on me and my Spark's journey.
No I'm not giving up on my new team, I'll always be there for them, however I am moving myself up to the top of my priority list, which is where I need to be in order to stay on track.
I will be focusing on me and my goals. Take time to smell the roses once again.
Now for my POA- continue to drink 10 glasses of water daily, focus on my daily food intake (no more extra treats), focus on my workouts (no more making excuse why I won't)

DON'T LOOK BACK
As you travel through life there are always those times
When decisions just have to be made,
When the choices are hard, and solutions seem scarce,
And the rain seems to soak your parade.
There are some situations where all you can do
Is simply let go and move on,
Gather your courage and choose a direction
That carries you toward a new dawn.
So pack up your troubles and take a step forward -
The process of change can be tough,
But think about all the excitement ahead
If you can be stalwart enough!
There might be adventures you never imagined
Just waiting around the next bend,
And wishes and dreams just about to come true
In ways you can’t yet comprehend!
Perhaps you’ll find friendships that spring from new things
As you challenge your status quo,
And learn there are so many options in life,
And so many ways you can grow!
Perhaps you’ll go places you never expected
And see things that you’ve never seen,
Or travel to fabulous, faraway worlds
And wonderful spots in between!
Perhaps you’ll find warmth and affection and caring
And somebody special who’s there
To help you stay centered and listen with interest
To stories and feelings you share.
Perhaps you’ll find comfort in knowing your friends
Are supportive of all that you do,
And believe that whatever decisions you make,
They’ll be the right choices for you.
So keep putting one foot in front of the other,
And taking your life day by day…
There’s a brighter tomorrow that’s just down the road -
Don’t look back! You’re not going that way!

I want to thank all my Sparks Pals who honoured me by voting for me as a Sparks Motivator.
It really made my day yesterday when I recieved the e-mail from Sparks.

A Birth Certificate shows that we were born
A Death Certificate shows that we died
Pictures show that we lived!
Have a seat . . . Relax . .. .. And read this slowly.
That just because two people argue,
it doesn't mean they don't love each other.
And just because they don't argue,
it doesn't mean they do love each other.
That we don't have to change friends if
we understand that friends change.
That no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt
you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.
That true friendship continues to grow, even over
the longest distance. Same goes for true love.
That you can do something in an instant
that will give you heartache for life.
That you should always leave loved ones with
loving words. It may be the last time you see them.
That you can keep going long after you think you can't.
That we are responsible for what
we do, no matter how we feel.
That either you control your attitude or it controls you.
That money is a lousy way of keeping score.
That my best friend and I can do anything ~ or nothing ~ and have the best time.
That sometimes the people you expect to kick you
when you're down will be the ones to help you get back up.
That sometimes when I'm angry, I have the right to be angry,
but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.
That it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others;
sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself..
That no matter how bad your heart is broken, the world doesn't stop for your grief.
That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are,
but we are responsible for whom we become.
Two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different...
That credential on the wall does no t make you a decent human being.
That the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.
'The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything;
they just make the most of anything

Today's weigh-in .... down 1/2 pound.
Talk with consultant. In order to keep those pounds going down, recording bigger numbers need to be more consistant with workouts.
Yes, I workout everyday, 15 min. walk here and there throughout the day, 15-20 min. on Wii Fit, or recumbent bike. Wallies or lunges throughout the week. But she wants more.
Oh my dear. My poor legs are paining most days and it stops me from doing more, but if she wants more it's what I'm going to have to do. I am 1/2 way to my goal and want to reach it before my next birthday in September.
So this week's goal, 2 - 30 min walks - 5 times this week. Spend 30 min. on Wii fit 3 times this week. 30 min. on Recumbent bike 3 times this week. Up my wallies to 100 each day and lunges 50 each day.
When sitting in front of tv will work dumb bells or stretchy bands.
It is all doable goals, and I will do this.
