Hi! I'm Janey. My purpose here is to share about the positive direction my life is taking through good nutrition and exercise. I have always been passionate about saving money around the house, especially when feeding my family. I hope you will enjoy sharing some of the best things I have learned on my journey!

My vision is to be a great example of heart healthy living.

I love that my DH and I enjoy exercising together. I continue to add running events to my fitness schedule.

I thank SP daily for what we have accomplished nutritionally. The changes we are making are adding quality and happiness to our lives. Who knew that eating healthy and exercising could be so fun?!!

My main Health goal has been to focus on my own choices and quietly go about my wellness business.

The true joy in my Spark Journey has been every time a family member or friend asks about healthy choices for thier own lives.

Janey thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words on my Blog of 1000 Days. I am excited for change that is possible, and changes that are already happening. I know putting my trust in the right place, is going to be a BIG help! You are so right about a quiet revolution. We can do so much, when we just stay calm, and carry out our business, and keep on doing the next right thing.
