Every day there is another thing that challenges us.
I decided that I would not only do the blogging and journaling, I would take me time to read a book that with inspire and motivate me. What I chose to read is Michael J. Fox's new book, Always Looking Up.
He is truly an inspiration for me. He has a paragraph that i would like to share that really made me think.
" Work ,Politics, Faith and Family. These are the struts of my existence. These are the critical supports of my life. Together they form a bulwark against the ravages of Parkinson' Disease. My identity has so much to do with my ability to self-express, to assert my creativity and productive worth (work), my rights and the rights of whatever communities I'm a part of and therefore responsible to (politics), my freedom to seek spiritual purpose(faith) ,and to explore the complex bonds I share with those I love most (family) and without whom I would have long since succumbed to darker forces."~Michael J. Fox from
Always Looking Up
So much power in those words and how much I and maybe others who read this can relate to it.
I am so To all the SP I have met and yet to meet, Let's keep looking up, One day at a time!!!
Have a great and Sparkling Day!!!

Today I have been overwhelmed with stress. Trying to get it under control is definitely one of my personal challenges today. One the bright side of this, I am not emotionally eating Sitting here is doing and blogging is working out better than I expected. Eating lunch too is helping. Keeping everything right in between all the values won't be that bad today. One Day at a Time, One Baby step at a Time Today!!
Thanks SP for giving me the tools and members who give me the spark I need everyday.

During my lifetime, I have had a difficult time reaching out to others when I needed help and support. I was there for others, but would stuff my feelings and hide what was really "eating at me". I think I was bulimic way back in the 60's before they term was out there.
yet nobody knew. Paying the price for it now, but I have learned that when you take the first steps, it becomes a lot easier to tackle problems by asking for advice and help.
So today I reached out with a problem to SP immediate help and with some great member advice. I succeeded in keeping my sodium in between the values tonight. ok it's been only 2 days out of the week, and I messed up in completing this week's challenge...But You know for once I say Ok there is next week to keep trying to keep the levels in between.
Oh my SP you are creating a self motivated, a reaching out to others, exercising, water drinking, blog writing, working on life changes Woman.
