WELCOME TO SPARK!!! Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time.
A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.
1. Put together your own Spark page. This is a great way to communicate with other members and build relationships that will support and motivate you. You can do this by going to the START page and the green section has something about your Sparkpage.
2. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.
3. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.
The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family! *~ Paula *~

Hello everyone! My name is Niquole & while I'm no stranger to health & fitness, I am new to this site. I believe I have been on it previously in passing, however I now plan on becoming a regular here. My goal for the new year isn't going to be the cliched "lose 10 lbs" (I'm already working on that) instead it will be becoming a healthier person.
I intend on reinforcing some of the good habits I have picked up this year such as drinking more water, eating more fruits (I'm pretty solid on veggies ) & maintaining a cheery outlook. The main thing I want to work on is stressing less, & being as pleasant as possible (being grouchy does nobody good).
Question of the day for all of the lovelies on here: What is your New Year's resolution, why & how will you execute it?
I also intend on finally entering & completing some 5ks next year, after January I will be able to get my knee the MRI it needs to determine when I can resume training
