Join our team

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

This is a team for Mothers, Daughters, Sisters, Friends who want to challenge each other. If you are interested in this team, please, come and join us. We also have a spreadsheet to keep track of our weight.

Older members, I am also team leader on Anyone over 70, we also have a spreadsheet for keeping track of our weight. It is NOT a challenge unless you want it to be. It is just a tool to keep aware of where we are and what we are doing. Go to my Spark Page and click on the 70 speed limit sign and go to chat away if you just want to chat or if you want more information.

Someone sent me this morning on a fast way to peel garlic. If you have a hard time peeling garlic, try this.

    Fast but noisy, I use a knife and crush it with the skin on and then pick out the garlic

    Great idea! My DD is a SP but doesn't log on. She has dropped a dress size and is looking so good!! DDil also has lost 45 since the Spring and is looking fabulous. She says she doesn't have time for SP either. LOL I am sticking with SP but as a loner, I guess! AT least I am making progress!!

Another good Healhy Reflection

Sunday, July 24, 2011

I read the Healthy Reflections and many are too good to leave. I repost here because I am not sure everyone gets the Healthy Reflections daily. If you don't you should sign up for them.


You must be careful how you walk and where you go, for there are those following you who will set their feet where yours are set.- Robert E. Lee, Civil War General

Be worthy of imitation

They say imitation is the greatest compliment, but are your actions worthy of imitation? We are all in some setting of leadership. Whether it be as a parent, boss, or friend we should constantly examine the example we are setting for those around us. Are you being a positive role model? Are you treating others in a dignified way? Be a cheerful and diligent worker, parent, and boss to those around you. Children, especially, are like sponges taking in your every action and word--they naturally want to be just like you. So be mindful of your word and deed, you never know who might be watching and silently learning what you are demonstrating.

    Thanks for sharing it. Sometimes I like the Healthy Reflections, and sometimes I don't. I do subscribe to them, like you, but sometimes they seem like just more fortune cookie wisdom. Sometimes I get one I find meaningful though.

Today's Healthy Reflection good for everyone

Saturday, July 09, 2011

Great Healthy Reflection today. We all need to follow it.

If the world seems cold to you, kindle fire to warm it.- Lucy Larcom, hymnist

Lighting fires in the cold

It is very easy to complain about the state of the world and point fingers, especially when you're having a bad day. What is not so easy--and yet desperately needed at times--is for people to step up and make a difference. Don't be intimidated by others, wallow in your own negative feelings, or sit back and assume someone will do it when you are capable yourself! Relating to others around you isn't always easy, but lending a helping hand, extending a hand in friendship, or expressing a word of encouragement can make a big difference to someone. The fate of many has been changed by the actions of just one person who has grown tired of "how it's always been done" and instead turns and does something more positive. The world does not demand of you to give your entire life, but we can all be instruments of positive change. What can you do to make this world better?
