Thank YOU WONDERFUL SPARK FRIENDS FOR YOUR PRAYERS! I know she felt them all. This is what you call Support and Encouragement. I Really Love ALL my SPARKFRIENDS! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am strong in faith but I wondered what I would do in this circumstance. She had been feeling pain and knew to go get it checked out. I pray that all of you make sure we are not neglecting the cries of our bodies when something may be out of place. Not walking in fear but using Wisdom to know what to Pray against. I have never gotten a Mammogram. I'm thinking of getting one real soon. My Life in God is valuable and I want to be Whole to reach the loss.

Ok...I'm doing great on my workouts and nutrition. Thanking God that I know I'm walking in Consistency which makes me happy! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

So what's up for your Wednesday? I'm working a lot today and I'm doing some type of High Intensity Cardio today or 30 Day Shred by Jillian Micheals. That's High Intensity! emoticon

Enjoy this Beautiful Day Wherever you are. God Loves You!
Blessings and Prosperity in Every Area of your Lives!

My son's 21 year old sister is going for a Biopsy of her breast today to see if she has breast cancer. She was having pain in February so now they want to do the Surgery. It's at 1:30 cst and I just found out about an hour ago.

She's a strong young lady who takes care of her 3 year old son. She works two jobs as a Registered Health Care Provider for the elderly. Her grandmother passed last summer from cancer and I know she's scared. Any prayer you give is deeply appreciated. She's in Oklahoma but prayer is only a whisper away.

Thank You Faithful Spark Friends!

Love You!

    I'm saying a prayer!. My 25 year old cousin just had a lump removed from her breast. (Breast cancer runs in her moms side). Thank goodness it was not cancerous. I'm praying for the same outcome for your son's sister.

Peace & Blessings...

    I will add her to my prayers. Oh boy. My good friend was diagnosed last August. It's been a long haul for her, and she is still in treatment. I wish your son's sister all the best, whatever is in store for her.

From friend to friend! Here is a blessing I received from a friend today. "May today

there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to

be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and

others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has

been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this

knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance,

praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us."

Happy Wednesday Everyone. Just Stopping by to let you know how my walk/run workouts are going.

Well I think they are going great! emoticon

I'm going to start following my training plan to get my running longer. emoticon

I also want to check myself on different terrains. I mostly have been running on concrete sidewalks or on asphalt or parking lots. The high school running track is asphalt but it appears that I have to try harder to run on it. I don't know if my tennis shoe is incompatible with that surface or not. I guess I have to get use to it. I also desire to run at the park on the trail that is gravel and dirt to test my time there also.

I'm going forward and can't wait for the 5K in April. Each person can do it where ever they want. I'm thinking I want to do it at the park so maybe Thursday or Friday I'll check it out. I'm running inside the house too. In place to practice.

How are you doing on your workout plans? Are you making progress or do you feel like you are treading water? DON'T GIVE UP! emoticon

We can do ANYTHING if WE REALLY want to. It starts in YOUR MIND!
Love You Great Friends and I am Praying for Your Success!!!

I was running, but I think it has fizzled out, or as you would say, I am "treading water" emoticon
Keep up the great work. Your 1st 5K will be emoticon

    Good Day Deb! I am sitting here trying to spark before I go to work & not have to do it all day at work. I'm almost done & I do know about that walk/job in place from indoor w/Leslie. I think you should make sure that your shoe is compatable for your workouts. Its going but slowly but I won't give up. It is not an option.

God bless & thank you for this blog!

Well I'm doing much better and learning a lot. I also have learned a lot from the quizzes that they have placed on the points page. I actually learned that a serving of meat is only 3oz and not the 4-6 oz that I would eat sometimes. Not all the time. It's important just like making the correct moves during workouts, to eat the correct portion control. I have decided that I will load up on the green vegetables that can be considered a FREE food. That's why I think a salad before a meal with out all the heavy dressing is the best weapon against too big of a protein serving. emoticon

During this month I am also working on eating more and more vegetables especially the ones that I don't eat a lot such as asparagus. As always I'm working on getting my 8 glasses of water per day. emoticon

Making a better choice in the type of food that I eat is very important for me. I want to eat enough that it is filling and not calories that contribute nothing but useless extra calories when I could have eaten a serving of brown rice or mashed sweet potatoes. It's a conscience choice and ours to make for success. This is the beginning of our entire lifestyle change. emoticon

May you have a GREAT week in every area of your life. You are ABLE to take the steps needed to be a success. One day at a time and one step at a time! I love you!
Many Blessings!

    Glad to hear that you are making better choices!! I have done pretty well this month too. Just need to work in more green veggies. I do have a salad most times with dinner, but still need to work on incorporating more into my diet. emoticon

Keep up the great work!!
