joke of the day

Friday, February 17, 2012

Cindy noticed her husband standing on the bathroom scale, sucking in his stomach.

She commented, "I don't think that's going to help."

"Sure it does." he said. "It's the only way I can see the numbers."

Today is the birthday of the only 2 awesome women I had in my wedding party. My sister & a good friend.
I apologize to my spark friends about not have a healthy reflection today I haven't received half my spark emails so I'm just winging it, lol. Hope I get them tomorrow. Anyone else only getting half their spark mail, very odd. It's not even in my options any more :( Wonder if I screwed up my settings somehow. Anyways did a half hour of Zumba this am followed by ypump. Called my sister to wish her happy birthday in the afternoon which flew by. Did well nutritionally, which I find crazy since I ate like 4 poptarts after dinner tonight. I was happy to get my chocolate fix though. Getting close to that TOM, hope that isn't too much info for you. I'm so excited only a few more days before I leave for Australia. Have a Happy Valentines day tomorrow spark friends!

    Happy .Valentine's day to you also. I had some chocolate dipped strawberries, but Baily helped me out by licking the chocolate off so that they would be less fattening.

Healthy spark reflection-Insight into learning

Sunday, February 12, 2012

Every season in life is full of learning experiences. One step leads to the next and we can draw on the past and walk confidently through trials as our wisdom grows. Our thoughts eventually turn into our habits, which determine where our lives go. Put your dreams in capable hands--your own. Don't let the "wisdom of the world" become the internal voice that guides you. What has your own life taught you? What experiences have brought you to where you are now? Think about what it takes to overcome the roadblocks in your life. What skills do you need in order to achieve you goals? Take a writing class to jumpstart the book you've always wanted to write. Shadow a friend who knows how to sew, or research a trip to the country you have longed to visit. The common denominator for all successful people is having the right tools to realize their goals.
I find writing down & talking about my goals w/others helps me to achieve them. Best wishes spark friends on achieving all your goals!!

    You are so right! All of these questions need to be asked before we can accomplish what we are meant to do.

I too find that talking about my goals helps me to achieve them. I keep them close at hand and close to my heart! emoticon

What we can learn about patience from a diamond

Friday, February 10, 2012

Trying (but failing) to see your goals realized can be frustrating. Margaret Thatcher once said "You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it," and she was absolutely right. You've got to believe that you will succeed! Never admit defeat as long as time and effort remain. Our greatest asset is patience; our greatest weakness is throwing in the towel. Banish discouragement and feelings of impossibility by working hard, doing more, and not giving in! A diamond was only made beautiful after millions of years as a lump of coal.

Even if our efforts of attention seem for years to be producing no result, one day a light that is in exact proportion to them will flood the soul

- Simone Weil


What leaps of faith are you willing to take?

Thursday, February 09, 2012

Trying new things can give you a real zest for life. Pushing beyond your comfort zone in a responsible way helps you grow confidence and creativity that you can apply to your everyday life. Do not let fear control what you do (or don't) do? While taking risks can be scary, doing nothing is a big mistake, as it produces nothing fruitful within you. There is a direct relationship between the things that we achieve and the effort we put forth to obtain them. To reach the fruit, you have to climb the tree first!
I feel this way about exercise. Never thought I could do 3 days @ the gym doing 2 back to back classes each day but I succeeded this week! Now to work on controlling my mindless eating at night.
