One of the best things about Sparkpeople are the teams and the people you meet. I belong to some great teams, some are encouraging, some are fun, some keep me honest (on track) and some get me movin.
One of my first teams was "Are there any Nascar Fans". I have since become co-leader. Hoping to keep the same fun spirit that it has. Also incorporate some different topics such as picking top 3 for each race. There are some really nice people on this team, wish we lived closer to meet them. We have a lot of fun ribbing each other when our driver does well and there's doesn't. Everyone knows it is just for fun and we don't wish any driver any ill will. OK maybe the Busch brothers but that's all.
Crazy for Quilting, very small group. People seem to not stay long. The leader has had a really rough three months and hasn't been able to be on. We miss her and wish her the best. Though only a few people they would be there when I would need a prayer. We truly care about each other and they are in my prayers everyday and night.
Nascar 2007 spark challenge: This is purely for fun and only on once a week to list my picks. I'm not sure I like how the points are calculated and probably will not stay on it next year. Boy can I tell you I think I dropped from 3rd to almost last in 2 weeks. So pick carefully.
Late In Life Mommies, this is group keeps me motivated. There are great challenges, the team is very active and love to chat. Very friendly group, would recommend this group to anyone that is older and has young children. You get great support and have a lot in common.
Virtual Racing: Keeps me moving. Wish they had more races scheduled. I love doing the 5K and hopefully someday can do a 10K.
Around the world in 80 Days: is almost over and I don't think we are going to make it. There is enough interest to do it again and hopefully make it this time. The team was pretty large and everyone ran, walked, biked, hiked their hearts out. We can do better though.
Classic Book Club: I love the classics and had looked for a team like this a while ago and could not find one. I happened across this one from someone elses page. So glad to find it. I just started an Oscar Wilde "Picture of Dorian Gray". Easy reading but you have to really listen for the meaning. I am looking forward to the discussion, am only on chapter 5. My favorite author is Jane Austen, so I am in hopes of reading something from her soon.
Community Team: Just joined this team about a week ago. I never read other peoples blogs so I am finding this very interesting. It's funny how trying to help someone else is ending up helping me. Finding others with the same problems, such as weekends. Wish I had more time to spend reading others pages and blogs. I now check out the spotlight everyday and see who it is and read about them. IT has opened a new part of Spark I did not know before.
Thank you SParkpeople for all you give.
