Now I never said that I do them all LOL so in terms of the "No LEFTOVERS" HA, I'm right there with ya! Lots of foods tste much better as left overs!!! But again, for some reason they chose to place it under being a healthy choice! :o)

Well, keep on striving for a HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE my friends!

Project: My Fitness/Health in 7 Words

Monday, January 25, 2010

Hey, just came from a Poetry/Writing class at the Cancer Center today. And I decided to do a spin off project, if you would. Would you like to help with the first part?

Using only 7 words please write about "Fitness/Health". What are your thoughts re: Fitness, Health, Healthy, Exercise, Workout, Fit or Strength?
BUT you can ONLY use 7 WORDS
:o) It can be your experience or whatever comes to mind when you hear/see those words. Write a sentence or just the words themselves!

Thanks so much for sharing and being a part of my project!

*A Charm School Grad trying to get organized & back on her feet after being very ill?
*Picking up life after being sick?
*Living in the City?
*Going Back To School &Changing Careers in Your 30's?
*Church Stuff?
*Share a Proverb or Bible verse/passage & relate it to something happening in my life or in the world today?
I value my SparkFriends Opinions, so any comment is helpful & encouraging...

    emoticonBOBBIENORTHERN! I also like a lot of those ideas. I would stay away from the E & C in Society though. That might turn into quite a bitch-fest. I know I'd rather not show "That" side of me...but while we're on the subject...What's with people who have conversations on their cell phones in public? and wha't up with... emoticonoops, never mind.

    emoticon emoticonAll of the above would be good and interesting. As for titles I am at a loss emoticonI am not too good at titles. Another thing you could blog about is your relationship with the Lord Jesus, that always good for interesting communication. I love blogging about the Love of the Lord and what His going to the cross means to us and how we are now free from the curse of the law because He went to the cross. Have a great day. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
