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.

Fitness Minutes: 74,499

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.

    emoticon for commenting on my blog. I was feeling a bit hard on myself yesterday and frustrated. What I've learned is that many foods that are cut back or cut out as part of a healthy lower carb lifestyle(starch, sugar, potatoes/night shades) are connected to inflammation. Its been known to improve those conditions when the foods are eliminated. Conditions like MS, Colitis, Arthritis, High Cholesterol and Diabetes have responded well to the way of eating and allowed people to control them without medicines or with a significantly reduced number of medicines. So at the very least the SAD diet will not help my daughter. And the fact that she seems fairly symptom free w/o her meds and with our current food changes to much lower carb would indicate to me that I am on the right track with food finally.

    We have a cat that absolutely no matter what we have done to deter her, she gets on the counter when I am cooking. I've tried even using vinegar water in a spray bottle to get her off my counters. You'd think she'd learn but no! And I'm always tripping over Anre who thinks being under my feet in the kitchen is cool. One of these days I'm going to trip over 1 of my 7 animals though. Can't live with them or without them - ha!

    I read this in Woman's World magazine and loved the message! Thought I'd share it on a sunny Saturday! emoticon

    "I can" and "I will" are so much stronger than "I can't" and "I won't." Hope always outlasts doubt. Negativity only has the power to hold you back - but positivity has the power to make things happen.
