One of my Spark friends had this on his status (4/28/2016) -- THENEWMICHAEL "When it comes to measuring progress, the mirror is a better instrument than the scale."
WOW!!! That is something we all need to take to heart!

JOHAL52 is still in a holding pattern over life. But that's okay--sometimes holding patterns can lead to growth--it's up to me :) -- Her status for 2Aug11 -- A small comment that speaks volumes.

CATINCJ Never set your goals at some else's pace or evaluate your performance by someone else's standards. Added 2May13 from her feed that day.

Member Since: 8/24/2009

Fitness Minutes: 85,274

My Goals:
To exercise more, get more toned, and get to a healthier weight. I would like to stave off any joint problems in legs and hips.

Another goal which I have is to get rid of a lot of the "stuff" I possess, way more than I need to have.

My Program:
Portion Control - although I haven't been real successful in doing this, I am more aware of what portions are and try to stick with them most of the time.

I use the nutrition tracker and follow no particular weight loss diet, just try to get more freggies, less carbs and fat. I have been customizing the "my favorites" list to include the foods I use the most. I have been also making use of the exercise tracker, getting at least 10 minutes of cardio every day. I try to do some strength trainig 3 days a week.

Personal Information:
I live in Northeastern Montana. I work more than full time at a desk job. I spend way too much time on the computer...

Jan, 2016 -- All of this still holds true.

Other Information:
Am a cat person. Like to knit, sew, quilt, garden -- but don't seem to get much of them done.

2/24/2013 -- Several fiber craft people have been meeting during lunch hour once a week to work on projects, visit, and show off our latest projects. We also share techniques when someone has a problem with their project. Some are also starting into spinning using drop spindles.

    Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, Not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. ~~~ Anonymous ~~~

    Hot and smoky but know it's going to get hotter and smokier. Hope you are surviving the heat and that it's not too bad. Harvest is going pretty well. We're at 35-40 bushels/acre so much better than expected! I come home every night with straw hair from the sweat and dust! Could grow my own crop in the bottom of the bathtub!!

    You were born to be real, not to be perfect.

    You are here to be you, not to live someone else's life.

    Every day you make some progress and every day
    You make a few mistakes.

    Through it all, your wisdom continues to grow

    and your experience continues to broaden.

    Be gentle with yourself.

    Accept who you are,
    Where you have been,

    and what you have to work with,

    for in this moment you can make positive
    Use of it all.

    Reach in and touch the purpose

    that makes you feel most alive.

    The world around you is filled with
    places where that purpose can do great things.

    It is never too late to offer your unique

    and genuine gifts to life.

    Now is the time to do great things,
    Even in the smallest of ways.

    Choose to fully and graciously live life as it comes.
    The richest rewards by far are the ones to which
    You most sincerely give of yourself.
