I go to Jazzercise and every session during the cool down time at the end, the instructor gives us a few "Words of wisdom". Last week, she gave us one that I keep thinking about. She said, "If you are so fortunate as to still have your parent... Read more

bad idea? Every Friday, my work, which is business attire all week long, allows us to wear jeans on Fridays. I have had this pair of skinny jeans in my closet for a very long time. They never really fit. Last night I tried them on and they a... Read more

Ugh!!! I should toss it out in the trash! I hate that I'm so addicted to it. I weigh myself every morning even though I know it's not the right thing to do since women's bodies fluctuate due to the time of the month. As long as I'm doing eve... Read more

we must eat and we must feed everyone! Ever since I can remember, every family function I've ever attended has centered around food...well, I guess most family functions center around food, but what makes Greeks different is that they are not h... Read more

Today is my husband's birthday, but to most people, it's a day of remembrance...a day that will forever bring back sad images and hopelessness. We come so far since September 11, 2001. Americans are resilient. Just like Spark People. We pick... Read more
