One thing we were challenged to do is to update our SparkPage and post some goals.
I. I am doing the SP 28 Day Bootcamp Challenge
2. Walk 10 minutes a day, building up to 30 min a day in 10 min segments (Achilles calcification tendonitis requires this) Mon - Sat
3. ST 2-3 days a week M,W, and/or F

1. Eat less, move more
2. Eat a variety of foods, minimum of 5 Freggies & 8 glasses of water daily
3. Measure portions weekly to be sure my eyes are truthful
4. Chips maximum of 2 times per week (My comfort food)
5. Recipes ready
6. Grocery List & Shopping weekly
7. A variety of foods already on hand, perishables purchased as needed
8. I've followed this plan before & was successful when sticking to the plan & fitness
9. Can't clean a lot out of the kitchen because of DH, but I can practice self-control (that's why I need challenges-accountability)

Other Information:
I love to read for relaxation, or information, or anything else. My husband tells people I'll read anything, but that's not true:) I haven't read the dictionary or the encyclopedia from cover to cover. I am learning to quilt, but it is slow going due to 3 part-time jobs & life.

    thanks for the visit. Things are finally moving in my favor. I got my disability friday and I was approved for heating assistance. So I am amazed at just how much God is working in my life seen and unseen. I wish the team the best and I appreciate the leaders working with me when I had no internet and had to visit the library. I have not forgot the kindness and understanding when I had to vent about the wasband and all the other things that changed in my life. emoticon

    emoticon my gecko friend, just stopping by to wish you an emoticon week.

    Failure doesn't come from falling down, but it comes from not getting up.
