At least, in the Photo Gallery! I still have to do much about exercise and eating and tracking.
But I have changed my background from a scene outside of Cuzco to one in Barranco,part of Lima, Peru...and added photos all from this year except the one with the tree roots. I love to be able to share from the word of God, to be used as His vessel to bring healing and deliverance, to build relationships within the Body of Christ, and have fun with brethren on outings or at meals. Intercessors are particularly dear to my heart, as we share a kindred spirit. I really want to get back in shape so that when the Lord DOES send me back it will be with even greater vigor to accomplish His purposes.

Okay, at last I have managed to load some photos from my most recent journey. The next thing I want to do is take a chance on loading the 3 weeks worth of photos and videos from the 2 memory cards of my defunct camera, onto my home computer, and then save them to a disc along with the pix I've gotten from Abel, Esli, Dany and Johel. One of these days I may even get prints for a photo album, but I haven't even done that for my summer 07 trip! (the last ones I printed were from the Feb 07 trip) But at least I've got a start. And it's been fun reminiscing as I finagle the fotos.
What in the world does this have to do with Spark? Well...I hope to get back on track so that I can get the weight back down (I put on 15 -20 pounds since I got back - faliure to exercise mostly, and careless eating). Because I want to return to South America in better form than when I left!

We finalyy have a home co9mputer, thanks to tax return, and with it, INSTANT MESSAGING! I have finally been able to chat with my "kids" in Peru (you see some of them on my page).Now I have to get an exercise bike with what remains of the return. I have strayed off track and it shows on the scale. It's been a hard winter! But spriing's a comin' (though this morning's 8 degrees belie that) and perhaps that will give me added impetus to "move it, move, move it" (picture hyperactive Lemurs)

Means little by little, and the phrase has a funny sentiment attached to it: While traveling by bus in Lima, peru, an older fellow boarded and, as is common among beggars in that country, began this harangue about how his mother worked, little by little, his father worked little by little, and so they made him work, little by little, little by little, working, working little by little...this repeated for the duration of our bus ride; and Lima is an enormous, sprawling cituy, which can take a few hours to traverse 9fortunately, i think we were with that only about an hour). But Esli, Abel, and I looked at each other and said in English (because bear in mind, all the aforementioned was in Spanish) how we wished he would shut up or get off the bus! So every time anyone said Poco a poco, we'd look at each other and giggle or smile.
ANYWAY...little by little I WILL get this weight off. I figure, really, I have been MAINTAINING the past couple of years: fluctuating between 195 and 205, with occasional brief forays below 190 (even made it to 180 for a couple of weeks). The thing is to be CONSISTENT, and I hit occasional obstacles that break off the tracking. So...I'm back to doing the cardio, at least, andhope that during the 2 weeks of Christmas vacation I'll get back into the strenght...I'm tracking what I eat a little more, but of course when I'm home away from the internet, that'll be interrupted. But I'd done it enough that I have a good idea as to what to do. So...poco a poco...
