Hello Everyone! and Welcome to Spark People all you new folks!
I'm new to the MSP TEAM, but am approaching my 1 year anniversary on Spark People. (Don't ask me how I didn't notice there were CITY teams in addition to state teams! SMH)

I've lived in the Twin Cities since the early 1990's (mostly near the U and then a long time in Nordeast Mpls) and I have lived in Roseville for the last 9 years. Geographically, I can walk a mere 3 blocks and be within the St. Paul city limits! ;)

Over the last year I have had some weight loss success but recently the number started climbing up a bit so am in the midst of an April reboot/relaunch of my efforts. I did quite a bit of distance running (3-5 miles 3 to 4 times a week) last year but am focusing on High Intensity Interval runs and workouts in 2016. I enjoy the Spark People website, but as far as workouts go I'm a big fan of Fitness Blender and PopSugar Fitness on YouTube. TMI?

Best wishes to everyone for a successful and productive April! May it SOON be warm enough that our winter gear does NOT have to be dug out of storage for an afternoon run! ;) (stupid wind chill)

Do they make "Days of the Week" sports bras? ;)

Hi, I'm Becky--I'm on the MN FatKickers team and I see some familiar names here. I live in Brooklyn Center and teach at MCTC in Minneapolis. I'd like to be able to find people that I can connect with closer to home to try to get myself motivated.

Blessed be.
Becky

Welcome, Linda, and thanks for the intro! Your lunch sounds delicious! Glad to hear you started biking last summer. I can't wait to be back on the trails! Let us know whenever you need encouragement or support! Setting up your own SparkPage and making it public/accessible will also make it easier for others to provide you with support, motivation and encouragement!

Hi, My name is Linda. I had just noticed there is a Mpls/St Team and I would like to join this team. I live in Blaine and work in St Paul. I just started biking this summer and discovered a bunch of trails up here. This winter I have been doing exercise videos and walking around North Town. It would be nice to meet people from the area and give and get support from each other. Today is Fat Tuesday and I am eating a salmon sandwich with avocado, it's pretty tasty.Have a good week. emoticon

Welcome to the Minneapolis/St. Paul official Sparkteam.

Going from -15 on Monday, to almost +20 today is awesome. I'm hoping some of the ice might melt on my driveway!!

We're glad to have you here, and wish you all the best. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me!

Spark on.

Hi everyone! I'm working on taking better care of myself and getting healthy in the process. I know I'll need support to stick with it for the long haul. Nice warm up today, eh?
