This is 2014 and time for some new Goals, As I age, this year I turn 74 so I'm just trying to keep my body healthy, moving and full of energy.

This is 2014 and time for some new Goals, As I age, this year I turn 74 so I'm just trying to keep my body healthy, moving and full of energy.

Basically, I want to do 3 days of Strength exercise and two days of Carido. I have to walk at least 30 minutes a day on the treadmill. Walking my dog in a quick stride, about 2.5 or 3 speed. I'm going to be doing a video exercise that will be enjoyable and helpful on keeping my body moving and giving me more spirit in moving faster. I really hate to be labeled and old person. I know I have some new wrinkles on my face, and some grey hair, but I sure don't want to be slow, I know with time my body will slow down as I'm sure it will, but I will keep it moving and trying to be strong, as long as I can. Thanks to all of you that send me encourangement. I wish you well and hope that you all reach your goals, that you have set for this year.

Sparks always has some interesting suggestion and articles with different Helps and aids. I love to follow their exercise plans that they offer. I'm getting use to the new formats. We all have to make changes in our life.

If you are truly working the Sparks Program, I would love to have you as a friend and hear how you are doing. Just let me know.

Thanks. Virginia

I am a Texas girl, from deep in the heart of Texas, living in Calif.

We came to California 48 years ago, We now live just outside of Sacramento, Ca.
I've been married 56 years, had 5 daughters, youngest is 34 year old, with Down's syndrome she still lives at home. My oldest daughter, lives closeby, and my only grand daughter lived in Canada, and has moved here in April 2012. In March 1977 we had a house fire and at that time 3 or my 4 daughters died, Bonnie, Tammy and Marilu. We are all Christians and we have faith, and plan to see our daughters again in Heaven, as well as all of our ancestors and those that have also trusted Christ as their savior. (John 3:16) In Dec 1978 my youngest daughter was born.

I have one Miniature Poodle named Silver, that has a long tail and two cats, Cleo and Farrah.

"Conditions are never perfect. ‘Someday’ is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you.
If it’s important to you and you want to do it ‘eventually’, just do it and correct your course along the way."

"Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.
Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements.
You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward.
Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
-- Ralph Marston

"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone, and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

Success is a Choice
-Unknown
"Today I will make many choices, and each will have a consequence. Today I can choose to tell myself that I am worth the effort, or I can tell myself doesn't matter, I'll do it tomorrow. Today I can choose to journal, or I can choose not to. Today I can choose to drink my water, or I can choose to be
dehydrated. Today I can choose to stay in my points range, or I can choose to hinder my goals. Today I can choose to be more active, or I can choose to take the easy way. Today I can choose to be motivated, or I can choose to tell myself "I can't." Today I can choose success. IT IS MY CHOICE."

Hugs,
