Wed, 16 Feb 2011 13:35:15 EST Warmer Weather is Coming! I am so happy to see that we will be getting some warmer weather! Having just moved to Stamford this past summer from Maine, I was quite surprised at how much snow we got here this year. What kinds of workouts does everyone like as the weather warms up and the ice and snow melts away? Which parks are your favorites around town? I'd love some tips as a Stamford Newbie, especially for hiking with the family. Tue, 15 Feb 2011 13:07:42 EST Happy New Year! Ok, so it's a little late, this being Feb. 10 after all, but I hope everyone is off to a great start to 2011. What is your plan to reach your fitness goals this year? How would you like this team to help? Let's get The Stamford Sparkers ACTIVE this year with lots of motivation and member support for all of us committed to living healthy.

Sun, 14 Nov 2010 03:38:46 EST How do you plan on getting through the holidays? I thought it might help to share ideas on how to get through the upcoming holidays without the weight gain and reduced exercising. How are you planning to stay on track? Wed, 27 Oct 2010 14:08:29 EST What did you have for breakfast this morning? And did you track it in your Spark journal? I had half of a banana, one slice of Wonder Smart White bread, toasted, and 1 tbsp of Trader Joe's Almond Butter with Flaxseeds. I LOVE their almond butter! SO hard to keep it to one tbsp! Fri, 22 Oct 2010 09:17:41 EST What are your goals? I am curious about the goals of the group here. For me, the holidays are filled with lots of baking, and this year, we will spending Christmas with extended family in the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee, where I am sure food will be a centerpiece. My husband and I will be in the middle of doing INSANITY, so that is good. It is portable, and requires no equipment, so we shouldn't have to sacrifice any workouts. That is my way on staying on top of my fitness through until the new year. Plus, it h... Tue, 19 Oct 2010 09:26:49 EST New Member - Recently Moved To CT Hi Everyone!
