Since I first got on SparkPeople, I have always added anyone who 'Friended' me to my Friends List, and sent them a SparkGoodie. At least that is what I THOUGHT I was doing.
Through reading a Blog on one of my Spark Teams the other day I discovered that you can go to your "Mutual Friends" List. It will show you a list of Friends who have Added You, but you have NOT added them. I discovered a WHOLE Page of people who have Friended me, but I have not reciprocated!! I am shocked, and embarrassed!
My first impulse was to add all of them immediately. But then I realized that many of them do not seem to be active or they have had nothing posted on their Pages for several months. Now I am not sure what I should do.
If you want to check for your own Friends, it is easy. Just go to your Friend Feed, and near the top of the Page it has a paragraph that explains the Friend Feed. Within that paragraph is a Button that says "Click Here to see or edit your list of Mutual Friends". That will take you to Your Friends List.
For anyone who has Friended me and wondered why I didn't Friend you back, I hope you will let me know. I will add you and we will continue this Wonderful Spark Journey together.

I woke up this morning to discover that I had been Voted Motivator of The Day! I was blown away by all of your Comments, Spark Goodies, and SparkMails. In so many ways I do not feel that I am worthy of all I have received today. But the one thing that I want to say to all of you is that YOU are why I am here. Right from the first time that I Logged On to this site I have felt Encouraged, Supported, and Empowered. Without the Unconditional, Constant Support of my SparkFriends ~ And My 'Real Life' Curves Friends And Family ~ I would not be here today, and I certainly would NEVER have been considered 'Inspirational' or a Motivator Of The Day.
On the way to my Day Job, I pulled in to "Our" 7-11 to get gas and found a pile of 19 Pennies behind my Car!! Too bad I needed more than 19 cents worth of gas, LOL!!
I got off work a teeny bit early, so I was able to go by the Gym on the way to my EveningJob and jump on the Elliptical for 30 minutes (2.27 miles!!).
Tuesdays and Fridays are Very Challenging Food Wise (that is a whole other Blog entirely!) but when I got off work this evening No Way was I going to come home and cook. Hubby met me at Chili's and I had the Guiltless Grill Salmon Platter. Since I 'Just Happened' to have several packets of Green Tea in my purse, I even got to have a healthy drink! I have not tracked my Food yet, but I am pretty sure that I did OK, Calorie-Wise.
It was 24 degrees tonight, but No Way did Gary and I want to miss our Walk to 7-11. We have walked for 10+ Minutes for 277 days in a row!! We found another 13 cents in the Parking Lot, and the clerks had saved 2 Pears for me!! I am not sure that this day could get any better!!

I am REALLY tired of the Wind!! I know that I am lucky that I don't have the low temperatures that some of you do, or the Snow and Ice. I do feel bad for those of you who are having to deal with that.
It was almost 70 degrees here today, but because it was so windy, after work I decided to go to the Gym and ride the Recumbent Bike rather than fight the wind again. I got in 7.29 miles in 40 minutes.
Gary had to work late, and when I got home, it was still daylight. So, I could not resist a quick 20 minute walk. Well, like my SparkFriend 2Kitties reminded me, at least the wind adds Strength Training to my Walks, LOL!!
When Gary got home, he had time to eat Dinner and then it was time to walk to 7-11. I think we were both kind of glad to make it a short walk tonight. And, to add insult to injury, they were out of Pears at the store!!! GRRR!!!!
