Today I received a long article from a very health conscious friend. I took lots of notes for myself, but it was a very long and informative article and worth reading and sharing. There were two web sites mentioned, one was www.Authority Nutrition and the second was Wellnessmama.com If you are interested check them out.
One long article was called:
"9 reasons to avoid sugar as if your life depended on it."
Very informative and had lots of comments too. Being that Sugar is a "TRIGGER" food
for me, I was happy to find out so much about this. Another article talks about how- Grains are slowly killing us........Take it for what it is worth to you..... The second web site gave lots of articles on nutrition and what is healthy, meal plans, recipes and lots more. So, even though this is not my words, I thought some people may be interested in reading some new thoughts and ideas on Wellness. Let me know if any of this is helpful to you. I am a long way to getting to goal, but do enjoy new articles to help me lose weight. It is a daily chore, but so necessary to become healthier and feel and look better. I need to do this and will not quit. No one ever said it was going to be easy
to plan healthier habits and get in a trim looking shape. Many of you have motivated me to keep trying and keep pushing We are worth it!! Thanks for reading and hope we can help each other and Spark our motivation up!! hugs to all, Irish Ei

Hello dear Spark friends, good morning to you. Twice now this has happened to me and two friends from Spark-- are now gone. it is so hard to explain the feeling I have. Special friends on Spark are the ones you talk to daily and when they are no longer here, it is so sad and hard to accept. The most recent friend, who has passed, had been ill and she did share some of her illness with me. I think what makes it hard to accept is, there is no closure when someone is far away and you cannot go to the wake or funeral. So now, all I can do is cherish the precious memories and fun talks we had. Her family has to be devastated. I am hoping she is no longer in pain and is in a better place now. God bless her and let her know I enjoyed our three years of friendship and sharing.
Everyday is precious and not to be taken for granted. Enjoy your family, friends and loved ones and spend time together. Thanks for letting me share these sad feelings with all of you. I feel like she was a gift to me and really felt lucky to have known her. I celebrate her life now and will keep all her family in my prayers. They will really miss her so much.
Hope all the Father's out here in Spark have a Happy Father's day tomorrow. Thanks for reading and being such a special website for me and all the joys and motivating times we have gone through together. We are really in cyberspace when you think of it. Do take care. I love you all! hugs, Irish Ei

"Today is the first day of the rest of your life." Make it a good day and reach for the stars!! Track your food, burn some calories, smile and make a plan. It is all up to us.
We can do it. Sharing with others and being positive really is a way to keep motivated. Random acts of kindness are wonderful to receive and give. Do something nice for someone and don't tell anyone. In other words, give for the sake of giving and not expecting anything in return. It is amazing the joy you will feel inside afterward. As in all things ask for God's blessings each day to do the next right thing. The journey to better health can be long, but can be rewarding!! If we plan our day with goals in mind, smiles and gratitude for all we are lucky enough to have it will be so much easier. We can do it!! Keep Sparkin and Don't sweat the small stuff, do one thing at at time, quiet your mind and you will develop your passion.
Many of these thoughts I learned through trial and error and also a great read,
by Richard Carlson, "Don't sweat the small stuff.....and it's all small stuff."
Thanks for reading my blog. Let's help each other plan for success.
hugs and best wishes dear friends, Irish Ei
