It's Really Just Not About YOU!

Friday, March 04, 2011

Ok for those of you who know me, know I'm not a big time blogger....So if I am blogging then I am either extremely excited or....the opposite! Well, with that being said I am the opposite LOL

This to me is a motivational, educational and inspirational site! I LOVE SPARKS! Most of you may know that I am a Sparks surfer...I don't get to post on most things that I read here...I am a serial Sparks surfer...I've read a ton of blogs, Sparkpages and even when a status is updated...
I come here for support! So if Sparks can provide that for us...then why can't we provide that for SPARKS! If you don't like something, would a little note of the oversight being sent too much to ask? Sparks has to appeal to a very large spectrum so it's really NOT just about YOU!

This isn't anything personal or towards any ONE person...just a few things I read tonight and what makes it so bad...I'm not even on some of the teams...just random things I read. Soooo I was thinking (ut oh lol) I bet Sparks get tired of reading all the things they (which some might say) aren't doing...So I wanted to say HEY I APPRECIATE YOU SPARK PEOPLE SPARK FRIENDS!

This world and its existence is larger than life...sooo It's really Just not about YOU!

whew!!!! I said it :)
SP ROCKS!

    You are absolutely right. Spark is for everyone to begin their program. Teams are chosen to the liking, and to your specification. But, only you, the individual has to adapt to ones self in this. You are really what it's all about within you.
Great blog!

    Isn't that what we work with our kids on- you are not the center of the universe? Yet so many people seem not to have learned that.

I love Sparkpeople and am so grateful for it- and for the marvelous people I have met here- like you!

Ok So....At What Cost?

Monday, January 31, 2011

As my ds would say awwww maaaan! Some may already know because I have posted this several places today - that I am 37 minutes away from getting my FIRST ever Spark 1000 Fitness Points for the Month of January!!!
emoticon emoticonright? Yea whatever LOL
At what cost for me??? Well, I AM going to do Walk It Out right now for 40 mins at a slow pace why?? My body has said ok ENOUGH lol
Fibro is yelling at me and Arthritis hit me LOL
I'm aching and my knees are swelling! So I will taste this award once and NOT go for it again for a while LOL
So my January reflections is to do what I can and what I can do is more than ENOUGH for me :-)
Kudos to those that can do 1000 or more but I shall gracefully bow out of that race from now on LOL

Luv ya Sparkies!!

    I HAVE OSTEOPOROSIS AND I'M BEGINING TO FEEL THE ATHRITIS WHERE I'VE HAD BROKEN BONES. WHEN I FALL I BREAK:( I DON'T HAVE WHAT YOU HAVE AND I KNOW VERY LITTLE ABOUT IT, BUT I'M FINDING MORE AND MORE PEOPLE WITH THIS DISEASE. I ADMIRE YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENT AND I TAKE OFF MY HAT TO YOU GIRL BECAUSE YOU ROCK AND IF YOU CAN SUFFER THROUGH 1000 FITNESS MINUTES OF EXERCISE A MONTH WE SHOULD BE ASHAMED FOR THE TIMES WE HAVEN'T TRIED TO DO SOMETHING. YOU TAKE IT EASY AND DO WHAT YOU CAN BECAUSE ANYTHING YOU DO IS MORE THAN MOST WOULD DO IF THEY WERE IN YOUR SHOES. YOU ARE AWESOME AND I'M PROUD TO BE YOUR FRIEND!!!!

Where have I been??

Monday, July 19, 2010

Where do I begin? lol First of all, thanks to my co-leaders for catching my slack :) Thanks to my SP Friends for being most understanding!
Let's see my last week consisted of a golf merit badge camp, a merit badge camp 45 mins away and a swimming and dive camp for both my kids! Wait, not finished yet LOL...My mother's car put her down so in between camps I had to take her to work and pick her up. Then a sick child and flare up from all the running around! And after ALL of that...no sporadic internet service Friday and Saturday!!!!!!!!!! Well!!
So I apologize for my unintended hiatus LOL...and can't wait to visit those SP Pages soon!

Fortunately, I was able to walk while the camps were going on but I have to now go back and remember and post all that walking...Anyways, I'm catching up today!

Love ya SP!

    Wow - busy! Sending vibes for a more calm time ahead. I just blogged about "I Cannot Do Everything" - so your blog entry especially reinforced that there are some times that are just going to be hectic and even with unexpected activities...we have to prioritize and then return to balance...and of course, it's that much easier to get through a crazy period with good friends along supporting you!

Tuesday, June 01, 2010

Let me tell you a short funny story...My dh saw me on Sparks early this morning because I had to leave for merit badge camps. As he continued getting ready he was like you got up early so you could "Spark" before you go?? I'm like DUH..yeah LOL
He so he was like you eat breath and sweat SPARKPEOPLE? Got the T-Shirt?
Hmmm...good idea hunny I said, and kissed his cheek and showed him the T-Shirt's that HE didn't think existed...HAHA I'm so ordering one LOL!! Maybe even 2... One for him!!!

Had to share!!!
Motto for June~BRING IT ON!
