The Challenge That Keeps Me In Check

It's a Beautiful Day!
You know that feeling you get when you get to do something on your Bucket List, a real Big Ticket item--whatever metaphor you use? I got to do that last weekend. I wanted to share part of the experience with you, since so much of Sparking is abo... Read more
Okay everyone, take a deep breath. Remain calm. I'm not trying to start a riot on SparkPeople with this video. Yes, it mentions doughnuts. Repeatedly. I realize that seems like blasphemy here on the "Live Healthy and Happy" website--
