Hello SparkFriends! If you are interested in learning more about the history of SparkPeople and how we can make it free, here is an article that talks about this .

Please note: Since we have millions of members, unfortunately I can't answer SparkMails that ask questions about someone's program or about site features. Please ask these on the message boards and you're likely to get better support than I could give.

I love to see so many people using SparkPeople to reach all types of goals. Each new success story we see motivates us to keep making the site better. Thanks to all of you - and our great team - SparkPeople has turned into a grassroots movement that is spreading around the world!

SparkCheers!

Member Since: 11/19/2001

SparkPoints: 56,180

Fitness Minutes: 44,382

My Goals:
1) Working on my new and improved fitness streak! I'm currently at 170 days, headed towards 200 if I can! (remember, this isn't extreme - I only need 10 minutes to keep the streak alive)



2) Make SparkPeople into a company that helps millions of people (I'm the Founder and CEO of the company and am passionate about helping people reach their goals!).

My Program:
I do a well-rounded fitness program that I can fit into a very hectic lifestyle (having a young company and 2 young boys is challenging!) - most of my fitness program can be done at home. This includes cardio, strength (mostly pushups, crunches, lunges, body squats, and other body weight exercises), sprints and jump rope, stretching, and tennis-specific practice.

My wife helps me eat fairly healthy and I help motivate her on fitness - we're a good team!

Personal Information:
I live with my wonderful wife Karina in the San Francisco Bay Area (even though SparkPeople is headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio and that will always be my hometown).

Other Information:
My wife Karina and I have 2 young and active boys. I love seeing them mimic my exercise. Some of our best quality time is exercising together, they love exercising - especially bouncing on a mini-trampoline.

Good Afternoon Chris (SparkGuy),

I Really Liked Your Blog On SAD. It Was Very Interesting.

And It's True That Certain Times Of The Year Can Bring On Depression.
Sometime It's Caused By The Death Of A Family Member Or A
Close Friend. And When The Anniversary Of Their Death Comes Around, It Brings Back All The Emotions You Were Feeling When
The Pass Away.
Sometime It Could Be Something That Happened To You Personally, Like A Family Member Becomes Estranged From You, Because Of Something That Happened To Them, That You Had Nothing To Do With It Yourself, But Because You Were There When It Happened, They Take It Out On You.
I Try To Tell Myself When Something Like That Happens, To Just Give It Some Time, And Maybe They Come Back Into Your Life.

I Guess That's It For Now. Take Care, And Stay Well!


ALL THE VERY BEST TO YOU,
LESLIE (LESCANTOONOW) emoticon emoticon emoticon


Thank You Very Much For Sharing Your Blog With Us.

I just found this site and look forward to learning how to use it! The chickens sound like fun. We have wild turkeys that come to our house and peck at the patio door for their breakfast. My goal would be to walk without pain again and I am starting today with meditative walking as spoken of in the article on 29 ways to deal with pain! It is something my husband and I can do together. (He has moderate dementia) emoticon Have a great Thanksgiving everyone.
