"When I say itís you I like, Iím talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.Ē Mr. Rogers

I'm back on Spark People for the 3rd or 4th time. Never been able to stick with it, but I seem to have hit a wall. Something needs to change so I can either climb over it or go around it.

I have a major move across country coming up in 16 weeks and that seems like a good goal date. To keep at it and live healthy until moving day (and thereafter). Here's hoping 4th time's the charm.

Run if you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must, just never give up.

Welcome back!
It sounds like you have a good plan in place!

My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in palliative care for stage IV breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Hi! I'm Barbara.

I've been on and off Spark a few times since 2010. This time I think my priorities are in order and maybe I have a REAL shot at success.

I've been back as a regular for almost two weeks on Spark. I am currently on day 32 of a 40 quest toward better living. I started sparking (again) about a week and a half ago. So many of my old friends have moved on so now I am finding myself as an almost lonely sparker. That's not good for me. I need the support and it helps me to be supportive of others as well.

So here I am... anyone out there curious about the 40 day quest? I'll be starting a new one in 9 days...April 15 will be Day 1.

The program I've been following is basic and simple. Eat healthy, move more.

My next 40 day quest is going to include goals of:
drink 5 water bottles daily
exercise 15 minutes daily
incorporate more fruits and veggies
get those 3 dairy servings in each day
daily vitamins & supplements
keep a written log of all food & exercise
spark daily

This is not my first 40 day quest, so some of my goals may be different than what you want to set for yourself. It's your quest, you set your goals.

My Sparkpage has more info about me. I've written lots of blogs. Feel free to read through them and see if maybe we can help each other, one day at a time, for 40 days.

Thanks for reading...

Be good to yourself...
