Ive wanted to try ball room dancing since i was a kid, I just always thought it seemed so beautiful and effortless. (And safer than figure skating!)

What food would you be most upset over if it stopped being made/sold? (Chocolate does not count!!)

I used to change the furniture twice a year (the Christmas had to go where the couch normally is) Now that we have a 125 gallon saltwater reef/fish tank, I don't move anything . I had to go out and buy a smaller tree. lol


Is there any type of exercise you have always wanted to do, but haven't ?

That is a great question.

I know this is kind of broad, but probably my Spark family. My initial drive came from myself. I knew no one could do this but me. My goal was to prevent the preventable - all the bad things that took the lives of my parents way too early. So initially, I wanted to do this for me, but also so that I could postpone being a burden to my family for as long as I possibly could, and spend as much quality time with them as I could.

But it wasn't until I arrived at spark that I started to gain any real ground. All the resources sure helped, but the people cheering me on, being able to read everyone's journey - the ups and downs - and I also try to give that same encouragement to others and that really fuels my drive and helps to keep me on track as well.

My favorite camping spot is hmmmm I guess the holiday inn, doesnt count, so anywhere that I can take my horse. We went to J Bar S last, which is by Truman Lake.

I hate putting away the dishes. I would rather wash the dishes than to unload the clean ones from the dishwasher. I am weird, I know.

I suppose crime/mystery thrillers, like Patricia Cornwelll and John Grisham. Used to be into like true crime stories, but the older I get the less I want to know about how horrible people can really be.

What chore do you hate doing the most?

I love to read and have just completed a six book marathon (all of my books I requested from the library came at once). I am currently reading Cat in a Topaz Tango by Carole Nelson Douglas.

What is your favorite genre?

I usually spend vacation at home. When I was a child, we always traveled. I occasionally still do, but it is mostly mini-vacations or day-trips for me.

What is your favorite leisure activity(s)?

Was there ever a time you did not own a TV?

I like working out indoors when I count minutes for ticker tape, but leisure bicycling and walking, well for leisure.

I didnt have any problem staying on track, as I totally changed the foods that I eat and I don't keep the bad stuff in my house, yet I know life happens - like birthday cake. Right now I am eating the same foods as before, but with specific foods on specific days, a bit more challenging, but I stay with it & motivated because I am seeing results, and there are more results I want to see emoticon

Shoot - I can't remember what has already been asked.

Okay, Are you a cat person, or a dog person? emoticon emoticon

We eat dinner for our evening meal. But when I was a child my grandmother would feed us "dinner" at noon and supper at 6pm.


What do you do to motivate yourself to stay on track? Is it a little saying in your head that keeps you from eating no no foods?

Afraid of heights? Sort of but can push through if I have to.
If allowed to bring one item on a tropical island what would you bring? My husband. He's the type of person that can make something out of nothing so that would be handy.
Favorite spring activity? Planting my gardens!!
How often do you try a new SP recipe? At least 3 times a week or more I would say.
Favorite part of new healthier lifestyle? Not having the guilt after eating something (or a lot of somethings) that aren't good for me. I'm able to feel good about what I eat now.
Where/how do you strength train? I'm lucky. I've had a home free weights gym for years but it's just starting to get a good workout.

Honestly I don't really vacation in the same place twice! Too much to see out in the world to do that. One of my favs is northern Michigan and Table Rock Lake here in Missouri.

Buying smaller underwear! That's all I can afford right now, though I'm looking forward to bras next, then summer clothes, then winter clothes. Boy, did those size 8s make my day when I put them on this morning!


Where/how do you do strength training - or have you not yet started this?

Maybe once every couple of weeks. I like that I can then add it to my tracker, rather than guessing or adding a new one. I should use it more often. Thank you for this question emoticon

It's a tie between country and classical. I'm still waiting for SP to come up with workout playlist in these genres!

This is a great way to learn new things about one another that we may otherwise never express or tell about ourselves usually. Here we can get to know one another, one question at a time. Here is how it works... I will post a question at the bottom of this post, the next person will ANSWER the question and then post another question for the next person who comes along. It's a lot of fun and very interesting! Sooo, the first question is...

If you won the lottery what is the first thing you would do?
