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: 89,538

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.

    Once a month would make it easier to save calories, but DH and I have a date night every Saturday. He's too exhausted from work to do anything other than go out to eat and head home. So, eating healthier is a good second option!

    emoticon Happy Groundhog Day emoticon
    Old Groundhog stretched in his leafy bed.
    He turned over slowly and then he said,
    "I wonder if spring is on the way?
    I'll go and check the weather today.
    If I see my shadow between eleven and noon,
    I then will know that I'm out too soon.
    I'll crawl back in bed for six weeks more,
    Pull up the warm covers and snore and snore. emoticon
    But if no shadow gives me a scare,
    I know that spring is in the air,
    I'll wake my friends and wish them cheer,
    With glorious news that spring is here."

    Check out my Groundhog Day Blog!!

    I don't think it makes one whit of difference what any old groundhog says...
    BUT, if the radio alarm goes off at exactly 6:00 a.m. tomorrow and starts playing "I've Got You Babe", you might be in REAL trouble!!

    *KRTV says 5-8 inches of snow between now and Sunday. As long as it's not that freezing rain mixed in I think I'll survive.
