New Icons Speak Volumes About SparkPeople.com

Friday, July 06, 2012

As of yesterday there are a LOT of New Icons that we can use for illustrating our Blogs, Comments, and Message Board Posts.
emoticon emoticon emoticonThe Dancers are some of my FAVORITES and you can look forward to seeing them often in my Posts (maybe just because their outfits are Purple, LOL).
I am glad that SparkPeople updates the icons fairly often as I LOVE using them!! But the ones that touch me the MOST are these 2: emoticon emoticon. And the fact that they are included under the "Fitness Tab" makes it even BETTER, in My Opinion! No matter what you position or ability level, there really is No Excuse for being Inactive.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
THANK YOU SparkPeople for giving us the Tools to get more fit, and the Fun Reminders that we CAN get More Fit no matter where we are right now.

    I liked them too! love the dancing ones especially as I am really getting into Zumba and some of the dance steps are complicated, but the bottom line is letting yourself go and have fun!!

    I love the dancing ones too, probably for the same reason--can there be enough purple in the world?

This is my personal motivation, right now! emoticon

    I love the new icons also. I got to use some of them yesterday for the first time. You are so right no matter what the position level we are in our fitness level there is no excuse for being inactive. When I want to complain and say "I just can't do from the pain. You are my example. "You have come a long way Baby!" emoticon emoticon for being my SP emoticon. Because of you I emoticon.

Which Future Are You Designing?

Sunday, June 10, 2012

Every Decision, and Every Choice we make is affecting our Future. The Scale may not be moving like we'd want it to, or the Changes may be subtle in our Health. But we are changing our Future every time we make a Good Food Choice, or we Choose to go for that Walk, or head for the Gym.

Turtle Fitness

Saturday, June 02, 2012

It is amazing what you can find on the World Wide Web!! I was relaxing after work today and I Googled "Turtle Fitness" and this is the first thing I found!!

Ok, Not exactly what I had in mind so I kept looking. Thinking "Yoga" I found "Upward Facing Turtle".

By then I was starting to get hungry, and I saw "Watermelon Turtle". I figured it might be a healthy recipe.

My Friends are always trying to talk me in to Biking with them. I am not sure that I belong on a Bike. Some Turtles seem right at home on Bikes, though.

Then I thought of all of my Family and Friends who are struggling right now with various Health, Financial, Relationships, and Many other problems. I can't fix their problems or mend their injuries, but I CAN Share a Prayer, a Smile, and a Hug!

Now, I am Off To Find my next Cup of Coffee!! Keep Sparking, Friends!! We are WINNERS!!!

No Fear Zone!!

Monday, May 28, 2012

I know that Sparky doesn't act like he is afraid of anything - Cats, Dogs, Cars, etc. I came across this picture on Facebook this evening and it proves that Turtles are really NOT afraid of anything!! I am not positive, but the Turtles in the picture DO look like Red Eared Sliders!!
