Alright team, I'm excited to start fresh this new year. I'm looking for the O's to have a winning season, but most of all, I'm looking forward to us all being winners by being LOSERS!! Let's get healthy and have fun doing it.

Success comes in CANS!
Failure, comes in CAN'TS!

Go Laura! I had to do an exercise video this morning as Hurricane Ida is dropping tons of rain and wind on my part of Maryland to go out!

BTW, I really like your cat icon...

It took me 30 minutes to make myself get up and do it, but I got in a 40 minute brisk walk this morning. There are dirty dishes in the sink and the bed's not made, but my body has been well exercised! emoticon

Hey Team... I hope you haven't gotten lost. i'd enjoy hearing what's going on in your world.

anyway, I'm doing fine except that the Yankees got WAY too many runs emoticon last night. I do not like to admit it, but they will most likely go to the W.S. and they'll probably win. Oh well, at least Mike Mussina won't be getting a ring...

Is that sour grapes or what? emoticon

Good morning, Tim! emoticon
Your goals are great and I will help you succeed any way that I can.
However, I recommend that you make them more specific. For instance, about going to the gym. How many days of the week do you want to go? What time will you go? How long will you stay? What specifically will you do with your time? All cardio, or all strength training? Or some of each?

Just work on one of your goals to start with. Give yourself two weeks to start a Spark Habit. Once you feel that you have control of that goal, start another one. You don't need to overwhelm yourself.

If you would prefer that I not give you the benefit of my opinions, emoticon , just say so. After all, we ARE Spark Friends!

Absolutely!! My goal right now is to get back into the gym and workout. My goal is to eat right so my workouts in the gym will be paid off. My goal is to discipline myself.

Good for you. Tim!
I now challenge you to choose 1 Spark Goal and let us know what it is. Then we can support you as you move towards it. Start simple; you can get complicated later emoticon

I like that 'circle of life' thing, too. However, I'm beyond reporducing and am happy to leave it to the younger generation. emoticon

Hi all,
It's been a while since I've been here, and I think it's finally time I come back. I've been busy along with Pam trying to kick our new business venture off the ground. We've gotten into High Tech Marketing and it all looks promising. We are marketing major cell phone services, Dishnetwork, all the way to Vitamin suppliments, health and beauty aids by Peter Lamas, and even Amusement Packages. We even offer gift certificate sales to about every major store in the country for less than what you can get them at the store for. Everything offered is wholesale or less! If interested, please SparkMail me and I'll send you my website.
But, back to the team. I'm about ready to recommit myself to a healthier me. I have done NOTHING but eat, and not exercise for the past few months. I can feel it. I don't like the feeling!! I'm sick of it.

Last Tuesday night we went to the Traverse City Beach Bums professional baseball game. It was Coast Guard night so we got free tickets! As I looked at all of the other Coast Guard families, which are much younger than us, all I saw were kids and babies!! Tons of reproduction! So, Connie, plenty of life going on out there. It's all in that big "circle" thing, huh? emoticon

Let's use this space to share whatever is going on with ourselves--whether it's food and exercise or something else.

I continue with the feelings I expressed recently in my blog; so much change in my life. I found out last night that my uncle (my Dad's last remaining sibling) has been told that he has 3 months to live. We're not sure how true this is, but my uncle has been and still is very depressed. Their cousin died last weekend...
My husband's brother found out last month that he had colon cancer. However, the cancer was removed and it looks like further treatment is unnecessary.
Even though I know this is part of growing older, I get tired of hearing about one more friend or family member who is ill or dead!
I'm going to think about living today! going to go for a walk with my friend after work!
