Live in northeastern Montana.

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!

We all have a whoops day. Its what you do the day after that counts... Kaliswalker

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: 79,409

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.

    "You are capable and worthy of being and doing anything.
    You just need the discipline and determination to see it through.
    It won't come instantly, and you may backslide from time to time, but don't let that deter you.
    Never give up. Life is an ever-changing process, and nothing is final.
    Therefore, each moment and every new day is a chance to begin anew."

    Hi,

    Thank you so much for the SparkGoodie - it has really been a very long time since I logged in to SparkPeople and your message/goodie came like a real blast from the past. Life has been crazy hectic for the last few years but that does not mean that I have not been thinking about you and wishing you well in my heart for your journey.

    I am hanging in around my goal weight (after getting back down to that again recently with a 12 pound loss over the last year or so). Life is an adventure and hubby and I have been working too hard, travelling a lot and planning a roving retirement in Mexico and Central America where we will be able to afford to retire comfortably and not have to worry about healthcare costs.

    Hope that everything is going well with you and that you had a lovely Thanksgiving.

    "The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true....action precedes motivation. You have to "prime the pump" and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals. Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day."

    "The difference between try and triumph is just a little UMPH." ~ Marvin Phillips
