One of my Spark friends had this on his status (4/28/2016) -- THENEWMICHAEL "When it comes to measuring progress, the mirror is a better instrument than the scale."
WOW!!! That is something we all need to take to heart!

JOHAL52 is still in a holding pattern over life. But that's okay--sometimes holding patterns can lead to growth--it's up to me :) -- Her status for 2Aug11 -- A small comment that speaks volumes.

CATINCJ Never set your goals at some else's pace or evaluate your performance by someone else's standards. Added 2May13 from her feed that day.

Fitness Minutes: 92,295

My Goals:
To exercise more, get more toned, and get to a healthier weight. I would like to stave off any joint problems in legs and hips.

Another goal which I have is to get rid of a lot of the "stuff" I possess, way more than I need to have.

My Program:
Portion Control - although I haven't been real successful in doing this, I am more aware of what portions are and try to stick with them most of the time.

I use the nutrition tracker and follow no particular weight loss diet, just try to get more freggies, less carbs and fat. I have been customizing the "my favorites" list to include the foods I use the most. I have been also making use of the exercise tracker, getting at least 10 minutes of cardio every day. I try to do some strength trainig 3 days a week.

Personal Information:
I live in Northeastern Montana. I work more than full time at a desk job. I spend way too much time on the computer...

Jan, 2016 -- All of this still holds true.

Other Information:
Am a cat person. Like to knit, sew, quilt, garden -- but don't seem to get much of them done.

2/24/2013 -- Several fiber craft people have been meeting during lunch hour once a week to work on projects, visit, and show off our latest projects. We also share techniques when someone has a problem with their project. Some are also starting into spinning using drop spindles.

    As days become shorter, look within.
    Are there any old habits that you could allow to
    fall away and "leave' behind?
    Is it time for you to change your colors, too?

    Thanks for the blog love on the cats in boxes post. I did not give him a belly rub in the last one as he was fast asleep. I do not know how that position could be comfortable but he slept for another 20 minutes after I noticed him. The box is about three feet behind my computer chair so he could have been there a long time before I saw him.

    Yup! You said it was free from Book Bub! So that must have been it. I'm going to Billings on Thursday otherwise would be great to see you again. At least this trip you can shop & get home earlier. I'll keep you posted though because maybe we could meet at the Buff on my way home? Having a "girls' weekend" so don't know if I'll stay over on Saturday or not.

    It's Festival Days here this weekend so make sure you check out the book sale at the library. Buck a bag and they are open til 8! Sale starts Wednesday so shouldn't be too picked over on Thursday afternoon.

    One of my friends from South Dakota will meet up with me & 2 coming from Great Falls for 60th birthday party. It should be fun. I'm taking her 6 milk crates of books - 3 of them kids books for her grandkids.

    What was the book series you mentioned when you were here? I think you said there were 4 of them? Detective/mystery?

    "You are capable and worthy of being and doing anything.
    You just need the discipline and determination to see it through.
    It won't come instantly, and you may backslide from time to time, but don't let that deter you.
    Never give up. Life is an ever-changing process, and nothing is final.
    Therefore, each moment and every new day is a chance to begin anew."
