Make May the Month for Fitness

Friday, April 30, 2010

The end of the month is when leaders check where their team's standing in their category for monthly Spark Points and Fitness Minutes. I found my teams are wow on Spark Points and ok on Fitness Minutes. That says something about progress of the individuals.

May is your month and my month for exercise and fitness. No excuses.

Our wonderful leader Nicole gives us advice as well as exercises. Review her lessons. Act on her advice. Thank you Coach Nicole.

My Spark Life

My Spark life.
Sunday, April 18, 2010

How long have you been a SparkPerson? Since May 27, 2009

How did you hear about SparkPeople? On the Today show I saw the mother of 5 who is a Dr. and looks beautiful.

What does your user name mean? grandmother on web

How many teams do you belong to? 20...a few more than I have time for...

What teams are you leader or co-leader of? Dr. Oz Show Fans; Fit Buckeye Fans; and Kappa Delta

Have you dropped any teams and why? Yes, too little time.

Have you ever had a team get together? I sure have! they are LOTS of fun

Any Meet and Greet in planning now? Yes, Fit Buckeye Fans meet June 19, 9-1 at Lake Erie, Lakeview Park, Lorain OH at the shelter. And Ohio Buckeyes mee June 19 1-5 at same place in the gazebo. Northeast Arkansas Sparkers are invited to meet up with me, et al in July tba.

How many Spark Friends do you have? -213 ,,,,Need to be a friend to the members of the 3 teams I lead, people who first befriended me and support me, relatives on Spark, and teammates who have befriended me so kindly.

Have you ever met any Spark friends in person? Yes I have!

Do you use any of the Spark exercise videos? DVDS's All the time!

Do you use the Spark fitness plan or do you do your own routine? A little of both.

Do you follow the Spark meal plan? Much of it.

Do you have a Favourite Spark People recipe? Sticky Chicken YUMMMM!

Do you have The Spark book and have you read it? I have hard copy and DH has CD's and DS has hard copy and GD has hard copy. Have listened, read, reread, and continure...

Have you ever bought anything from the Spark store? I sure have and I really like the Spark products. My next reward is to be the pink fitness in progress tee.

How many people have you gotten to join the Spark family? 3 or 4 joiners. Many interested.

How many Spark points do you average each day? I try for at least 90-100 but on weekends only get around 80

Have you ever GOOGLED your username? Try it! YES I did and things I have done show up. I could set my page to friends only?, but it limits my team interactions, so I won't at this time!. I now mark my recipe books private not public----1 less entrance to my page...and am cautious bout using no family names or others and what I say since it is public. I do not link to Facebook anymore. I wish SP could be as private as hotmail,

Have you learned from Spark People? So much from articles and blogs especially.

Copy and paste this to your blog and put in your answers.

    emoticon I love the show because it's funny and informative.
The animations because I can not watch a surgery.
The audience participation games test knowledge of health and nutrition.
I don't have much trust in doctors but Dr Oz puts things simply enough for me to take the info and search it out for myself.
He has been a tremendous help to me on my weight loss journey

Famous Lady quote....Martha Washington...

Saturday, April 03, 2010

I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.

    ...or in modern day terms...FAKE IT 'TIL YA FEEL IT!!! I have found that when I am in an "off" mood - if I make myself smile and talk about uplifting things - that "off" mood quickly disapates.
Thanks for the reminder!

BIG smile!
