Something Magic Happens!

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

Something magic happens when one participates in Spark People, because people who need people are the luckiest people in the world. Remember that popular song 'People' sung by Barbara Streisand years ago? Well, I must be one of those lucky ones because I need Spark People. Since I have been away I have been made aware that even though I would like to think I can stay on track on my own, I really did so much better when I had the support of Spark People. Giving as well as taking strengthens us all.

What I have to admit is that I am excessive in the things I like to do and am going to have to learn temperance (moderation) not only in my eating habits but also my Sparking habits. I cannot be sedentary too long during the day or that exacerbates my health problems. I need to make sure I get up and walk every day and keep track of my daily goals not only in eating but exercising. Blogging helped strengthen me in the past too.

So I have decided to come back on a limited bases. I love you all and desire to be an added strength to you as I learn to overcome the flesh through faith in Jesus Christ who showed us the way. That way is to love God with all our heart, might, mind and soul and our neighbor as our self. That is the fulfilling of the law. In so doing we have no more disposition to do evil or to treat our bodies with disrespect by not taking care of them.

There is so much love going around in Spark People that we cannot lose with God's and each other's help.

God bless us all in our personal journey's toward health and well being.

    I now wear a pedometer every day and track my steps and mileage on a spreadsheet. That way I know if I am too sedentary (i.e. spending too much time on the computer) That being said, I'm so glad you are back!

    Glad you are back. We can help one another with setting boundaries around our time so we do not overdo the good things we enjoy and neglect the things we don't like so much. emoticon Hugs.

    So nice to read your blog and uplifting words - I know I feel better as I continue with my Steps and Stairs. I feel stronger as a person and my Fitbit and I will be just fine...
