    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.

    emoticon Well a hectic life has kept me from checking in with my SPARK friends! Hope you are happy, healthy, and on target with your goals. emoticon

    emoticon I completed the Casper marathon on June 5th and was a little slower than I predicted due to the heat. All in all it was a good race and I was happy that I set that goal for myself.

    I decided I needed to detox my body - never tried it before. I am using the Fasttrack Detox method by nutritionist Ann Louise. I will consume liver loving and colon cleansing food for 7 days, fast a day and finish with a three day phase. It is short enough not to get bored and I love the rational behind it. I will be posting a daily blog as I go. I haven't seen a new thread or team on this one since 2009.

    emoticon Summer is going by so quickly. The days are getting shorter. The good new is my garden is really taking hold and I have enjoyed many fresh greens and herbs, strawberries, and onions. Time for the real veggies to appear. emoticon emoticon

    emoticon emoticon emoticon Take care and stay focused. My each day a happy wonderful one!

    emoticon Happy June!
    emoticon Been away from SPARK for awhile due to life's busy chores.
    In the last three weeks I have:
    emoticon gardened, gardened, gardened. the rainy weather made the grass grow so much, I had 8 new rose bushes, annuals and perennials to fool with and weeds, weeds, weeds.
    emoticon My Son graduated from high school and ALL the family came in. I did ALL the cooking for a whole week which meant groceries, cooking, cleaning, and starting all over again. Plus, the house needed to be in tip top shape. Have I made you tired yet?
    emoticon Training for that marathon was a priority. I kept up with it and the big day is Sunday. 26.2 here I come. emoticon
    emoticon SPent the last two weekends up at the cabin. Boy is there snow and no internet. Trying to fit in laundry and household while working during the week makes it hard.
    emoticon Now that I have complained....how are you doing? emoticon I hope all has been going great and you are on track with all you goals, dreams, desires, and plans. I hope to go back through your blogs and reward your success. Take Care and thanks for being my friend! emoticon

    Every year it seems to me I hear complaints about spring. It is either
    "late" or "unusually cold," "abnormally dry" or "fantastically wet,"
    for no one is ever willing to admit that there is no such thing as a normal spring.

    Well is April is half over and I think over the last 15 days we have had everything from 70 degrees sunshine to 2 inches of snow on the ground. Yesterday was so blustery, I felt I was in the Hundred Acre Wood with hufflelumps and woozles.

    So dear friends in honor of April, I present to you the following quotes:


    April showers bring May flowers.

    April is half March, half May.

    April weather: rain and sunshine both together.

    April weather is more capricious than winter.

    April weather likes to repeat the April Fool's Day.

    April showers bring Spring flowers.

    Don't ever bet on April weather.

    April wet, good wheat.

    A cold April brings us bread and wine.

    emoticon Remember that is WINE not WHINE...which I appear to be doing.HaHa.

    emoticon Hope you have a happy, healthy, joyous week. Keep me posted on your successes...except the number of SPARK points you get. How come so many of my friends are so lucky? Love you all and may you gain strength and lose pounds! emoticon emoticon

    emoticon emoticon Okay so I am high from a wonderful week. WHY?
    1. I completed a lot of pending things at work.
    2. It was spring break here and even though we work all year, I took some time off to garden.
    3. My yard looks fantastic and now I am just waiting to plant things. I can start the hearty crops mid May but nothing I don't want to die before June 6. We get hail really bad in May.
    4. I ran the fastest time trial 5k in 28:00 flat and then finished the run off with another 3.5 miles. Getting stronger with every run makes me high.
    5. I have time for myself to just relax, read, and catch up on SPARK.

    Mike Kramer, a Spark contributor, wrote a wonderful article called "Top 10 Strategies for Success". Short and to the point. http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motiva
    tion_articles.asp?id=518

    With that in mind, I hope you have been able to do at least 3 of those steps consistently. The three I was able to keep in the forefront this week were trusting my plan, never stop learning, and having fun.
    emoticon

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Keep on blogging, it is the best way to stay in touch with you, and remember to make time for yourself!
