Taking a break...

Monday, November 22, 2010

Just wanted to let all my SP friends know I will be taking a break from the site for a while. Lots going on with family and I have no time to spend for now and need to concentrate on my family situations. Still lots going on with my cousin Kevin and his battle with cancer. My parents are older and depend on me and their needs for now require my assistance. My sister and her husband are also going through some very hard times. Please keep me and my family in your prayers and I will continue to pray for all my SP friends daily. Hope you all have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving and Christmas....Please remember to tell the ones you love how important they are in your life. Give hugs freely and just be kind to one another. I will miss you my friends but will try to pop in once in a while and I will hope to be back after the holidays when life is a little less hectic! God bless you all and thank you for all the support I have received. Sorry to my Planet Fitness Team for having to step down but it would not be fair to remain a leader knowing God has other plans for my life right now. Take care and will check in ASAP!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

What are you Thankful for?

Monday, November 15, 2010

Really think about this....what are you truly with all your heart thankful for? First and foremost for me it is that I have a strong faith and believe with all my heart and soul that Jesus is my Lord and Saviour and I thank God for giving us salvation through Jesus! This is all about Love....with love in your heart and soul you will find all the answers that you search for...I am thankful I have a husband and a family who love and support me through thick and thin! I am also thankful my needs are met and I want for nothing. I am thankful I have a voice to share with my friends and my prayers are for all of my brothers and sisters to have a relationship with Jesus. I am thankful I have a church that gives me a place to worship with peace and truth from The Bible. I am so blessed and so Thankful for every day and every breathe I get to take...I want to be a better person each and every day. What are you Thankful for? emoticon

    SHARON, your joy and love for Jesus is CONTAGIOUS! I could feel God's presence through YOUR words! Thank you!!!! I'm ALSO thankful beyond words for a BELOVED friend who never, ever, ever quits on me! None of those whom have been given to Him from the Father does He lose! Isn't that comforting. He keeps us in all our ways! Glory to Jesus! {{{love and hugs}}} Susan

Get out and vote!

Tuesday, November 02, 2010

Did you take the time today to vote? It was not that long ago that being a woman we were not counted in this country. The right to vote should not be taken for granted...our grandmothers and great-grandmothers lived in a time where our rights were not as they are now....think about it! I honor the women before me each and every time I cast my vote to count. Not something to take so lightly...I thank God I live in a country where I have the freedom to choose and to count! We may not agree or even like the candidates but it is important to show up and use your voice...I voted today proudly! Did you? emoticon emoticon emoticon

Is your workout working?

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

Just a reminder....every couple of months re-evaluate your workout. Do you need to amp it up? Are you using weights? Make sure you keep your body guessing so you can burn the maxium amount of calories and continue to see the changes in your body! If you are on a standstill...probably time to do something more or even something different! Make it fun so its a part of your life...not just a chore! Make your workout work! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
