Short and sweet...

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

I read this on a fellow sparkers page....

Don't be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.-John D. Rockefeller

It seems that most of us are afraid or at the very least intimidated by change... but often times change helps us become better/stronger/etc...

Have a great day!

    Change requires some effort and being out of our comfort zone. Same as doing exercises...once they get easy, you have to change up or change over.

    I really like that! I am striving daily to make "better" choices and focus on progress...not perfection. I think that saying ties in too...because I need to be willing to give up "good"...and go for something better...that could turn out to be great! But I can never have great...when I hold on to "good." Hmmm. Thanks for the food for thought. Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on! emoticon emoticon

Is there anything better than early morning snuggles with a grandbaby? Perhaps, but not today, no not today!!! Feeling blessed this morning!

Grandsons and Exercise!!

Saturday, June 01, 2013

Today... my exercise included playing with three very active grandsons...nothing to extreme just being grandma... BOY am I tired tonight, but it's a great tired... ended up with over 15,000 steps on my Fitbit! Getting ready to go to bed so I can be ready for these little guys in the morning! So blessed!

Have a great day!

My poor bike but...

Friday, May 31, 2013

Bright and early yesterday morning, I hopped on my bike for a ride... the wind was fierce... but I made it to the park and decided to park my bike and get a walk in... I parked in a grassy area and was almost finished, when I noticed the city mowers pulling in... so I finished my lap and opted to move my bike to the paved parking area... absolutely didn't want it to be in the way of the mowers.... :) As I was coming around from my LAST lap... I noticed my bike was blown over..... the wind was so strong it knocked my Schwinn down... scraping the fender and cracking BOTH comfort grips on the handle bars... I was so aggravated at myself.... especially when I realized the mowers didn't come anywhere near the part of the park my bike was in.... I did manage to get a little over a 6 mile walk in... before riding home for a total of 3 miles on my bike...... Now to search Amazon for new comfort grips!
Have a great day!

    At least you got the good mileage in! We need new grips more in the summertime. Enjoy the new ones! emoticon

    That was SOME wind! Hope you can find the replacement grips. I envy folks who are so comfortable on their bikes. Even after an expensive professional tuneup, I can barely keep air in the tires. Why do they go flat so fast? Perhaps I need to sign up for a bike maintenance class at REI.

    Sorry to hear that. Hope you're able to find what you need quickly and inexpensively.

    Sorry your bike got damaged. Am amazed at the mileage you clocked, I can no longer do that. That is what I could do as a kid but today 1/4 mile would be a great feat for me. Have a great weekend.
