I did 25 minutes of fitness today.
Today's highlight was just getting outside after our regular quarterly SparkPeople Board meeting. Board meetings are somewhat stressful anytime when you are the Chairman of the Board and part of the management team because you have to put together a bunch of information and be on your toes presenting the information and answering questions. After the meeting finished I headed outside for some mini-trampoline and stretching. One fun part of the meeting today was discussing a super-secret project we're working on. I can't wait to launch this one in a few months or so! (Sorry to tease about this, but I've learned that I can't share competitively sensitive information. We did that at my first company and eBay watched us and said they tried to implement any of our good ideas on their site before we were able to launch them on our site. At least I have a great story about that now since they ended up buying us :)).
Here's a fun SparkMail I received today that the member said I could share on my blog – love hearing that her doctor knew about SparkPeople!

Subject: THANKS FOR THE DIABETES MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
Message: I would like to thank you and all the Staff for putting together The Spark, both the book and Website.
I came aboard Spark in March of this year, mainly because I was discouraged with my endocrinologist after six years. I went talking with my Primary physician, and got better support, questions and information of Spark. as she had heard of the website.
Prior to going back to her for Diabetes I was on the same two Insulins and 6 - 7 shots a day. I was determined this was going to change as I felt I was getting to much Insulin, knowing the body's Demands change with weight loss and activity of any kind. Tuesday I went for my second follow-up visit for Diabetes with her. Much to my surprise she told me she had a reward for me as well as a challenge.
From my lad. reports and weight loss she was happy with the work I was doing with Spark She had just read the article on Nicole Nichols in a previous News Paper. She and her family showed interest in Spark. So we talked for a while about the website and what was available.
I think I got her hooked !
My reward: no more seven shots a day or 2 Insulins day. Now just I type of Insulin and 2 shots a day. Same carb. range Blood Pressure is fine, breathing is fine and most of all I am more active. Yep, she is happy and I am happy. COULD not have done it without Spark and the help of the coaches and Everyone on the Teams I am with. I Insulin gone I would have been happy but two.....Celebration is in order. I have one month to do even better on this new Plan and you know what I CAN and I WILL
Thanks so much for your Support...............Micheke142.
I hope you had a great day! Did you get at least 10 minutes of fitness? What's your highlight?
