Welcome to my Spark Page!

"We SPARK to know we're not Alone." I am here because I STAY motivated when I surround myself with other like minded friends on the same journey as I. It really helps my progress to be held accountable by supportive mentors.

Successfully losing 70 pounds several years back was the beginning of my journey and maintaining my loss was successful too. Then I developed plantar fasciitis... a long story to be sure, but not without a happy ending. After following podiatrist's orders and wearing custom made orthotic inserts daily, my feet are HAPPY, and I am thankful to be pain free.

However, I slowly gained weight during the past 3 years - applying the brakes to my fit & active lifestyle produced a more sedentary lifestyle as well as my allowing bad eating habits to creep back into my life.

Notwithstanding, I am a Rebounder, and I'm back to tracking all meals and my daily fitness. 2019 is MY year for reclaiming once conquered ground and maintaining for a lifetime!

SLOW progress IS progress and celebrating each small step is what I do now. A little progress each day adds up to BIG results.
I eat less, and move more, and what a ..:::GIFT:::.. it is just to "move"!

“Sometimes the things we do second time around are better and hold more value because we take the time to reflect and review, and revive them through a higher love.
Don't be afraid to try again and do over with greater wisdom, a fresh set of eyes, and a renewed hope.
Life is not a straight line of first time successes.
It's the road that is paved with failure and seemingly wrong turns that provides us with character, emotional grit, and inner muscle to find new perspectives.
The only expiry date to your dreams, intentions or goals is the one you allow to soak into your soul.” ~ Christine Evangelou

"Success is not a destination, it's a journey."

"Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond to it."

    We practice unconditional love – loving ourselves as is. It is a declaration of self – I am enough. Right now. It’s not unconditional love if it’s conditional. Karly Randolph Pitman

    Happy Friday!
    After being housebound for the week I think it's definitely time for some fun with a few jokes and riddles that I'm hoping will bake your day just a little brighter and batter.
    Nuttin's better than starting the weekend off than a few good giggles, and here's a variety of cookie jokes you can pick and chews from.
    Some of these jokes are a little nutty, just like me.
    Feel free to indulge and enjoy because they're calorie free!

    Why did the cookie go to the doctor?
    Because he felt crummy.

    Why couldn't Cookie Monster make his bed?
    He couldn't find a cookie sheet.

    What cookie can make you rich?
    Fortune Cookies

    Why did the thief rob the Keebler Elves?
    Because they had a large stash of dough.

    Why did the little cookie cry?
    Because his mommy was a wafer too long.

    How can you tell that a blonde has been making chocolate chip cookies?
    There's M&M shells scattered all over the kitchen floor.

    The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray: "Take only ONE. God is watching." Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies. A child had written a note, "Take all you want. God is watching the apples."

    Have a great Friday and enjoy the weekend, in spite of how the cookie crumbles!
