______________My Mantras__________________

The Bible~ Ask, Believe, Receive.......

Positive attitudes~ reap positive results

Toxins~ remove all toxic things in your life

Form~ is everything

You must do something different~ to get a different result

Goals~ have some that challenge you

Life is short~ take time for fun

Mistakes~ grow, then move on

Learn to love yourself~ there is only one YOU

Charish~ people in your life that make a difference in you

Reflect~ on your thoughts to keep yourself mentally healthy

Faith~ Have un-waivering faith, believe like you know you know

Plan~ If you don't plan, you will become someone elses plan

__________The Successful SP Plan______________

People always ask me as a trainer what to do.
Here are some of the things I feel will make you successful with SP site:

1. Find others you bond with, and stick with them for support.

2. Pick people you WANT to become like, they are already there and know what it takes. Join the teams that reflect who you are and WANT to be, that you share like mindedness with.

3. Use the SP tools and log your food and fitness and do it EVERY DAY! Save the foods you eat often on your favorites so its quick to log in. The easier you make it the more likely you will stick with it.

4. Get on the site DAILY and stay on the site, don't quit its FREE! Yes, FREE!

5. Mix up your routine every 3-4 weeks and challenge yourself. You have to make the body work if you want results. Its hard work, but YOU are worth it!

6. Focus on form, its not about how many you do. If you can do hundreds of something you are not challenging yourself. Do them slow, controled and be mindful of form. LOVE A FULL LENGTH MIRROR! I use one to be sure my form is correct, and I have been a trainer for over 25yrs.

7. Eat for fuel. Diet is 80%. There are many articles on this site devoted to that by professionals that know there stuff, USE THEM.

8. Don't be afraid to put yourself out there with the tools. Post your ticker, your food log, your exercise log to PUBLIC view. Others can help you by the information you provide. You may be suprised by how many people started off just like YOU.

9. Set your goals, blog or post about them, rally to keep yourself accountable. Only YOU can make it happen!

10. Have fun with your workout! This is so important. If you love what you are doing you will get results. 3% of the world wants to work out, the rest of us have to.
If you keep at it, be consistant it will get easier and you will get results. BE PART OF THE 3%!

Im adding this for me from my friend FLYFIGHTER:
"The grocery planner on SP really really helps cut any wasteful food purchases--I highly recommend pre-tracking & using it."

The �Dirty Dozen�: Must-buy organic foods:
* Apples
* Cherries
* Grapes, imported (Chili)
* Nectarines
* Peaches
* Pears
* Raspberries
* Strawberries

* Bell peppers
* Celery
* Potatoes
* Spinach

Lastly this is YOUR life, you only get this one to make your dreams come true. Don't waste time, it waits for no one. Don't be someone that says, I should of, if only, I can't.....You CAN and Sparks will get you there if you truely desire to become who you want to be....the possiblities are ENDLESS.

Thanks for stopping by!
