emoticon Smiling is infectious: you catch it like the flu, When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too. emoticon I passed around the corner and someone saw my grin When he smiled I realized I'd passed it on to him. emoticon I thought about that smile and then I realized it's worth! emoticon A single smile, just like mine, could travel the 'round the earth. So if you feel a smile begin, don't leave it unprojected. Let's start and epidemic quick, and get the world infected! emoticon
Have a great week. Keep tracking, drinking your water and getting in some fitness minutes! emoticon

Hey Proud- Grandma!! I'm back in the saddle albeit I need a bigger saddle. I missed Spark but let my bad habits of not focusing on me to creep into my days. I am starting over and giving myself a clean slate. I also let that crazy fitness lady back into my life.

If at first you don't succeed, try try again, right ?
