Hello All, My Name is Kelly Mahoney and I live in Central Florida. I consider myself an aspiring ragamuffin. Not ragamuffin as in a cat or a rag picker or something, but a ragamuffin as defined below:

ragamuffins--The unsung assembly of saved sinners who are little in their own sight, conscious of their brokenness and powerlessness before God, and who cast themselves on His Mercy!!! (Brennan Manning, The Ragamuffin Gospel)


Join me in the Journey!!!


Member Since: 1/4/2011

Fitness Minutes: 40,898

My Goals:
Be able to walk and run without my thighs rubbing together and chafing.

Increase endurance when running so that I can sustain a running pace for 60 minutes.

Learn to keep my core activated, and carry myself with better posture.


My Program:
I am tracking food, exercise, and water intake.

I am STILL nursing an aggravated foot so exercise is nore challenging than ever. I am committed to 10+ minutes ST a day and 20 minutes cardio.

I am working on establishing a more regular sleep cycle. My goal is to get a minimum of 6 hrs sleep at night.

I am making it a point to connect with each of my Spark Teams at least two times per week, and each of my Spark Friends at least once a week.

Spark On!!!

    Just a little progress

    Even just a little progress, is progress. Even the smallest step forward is very much worth taking, because it maintains a positive momentum.

    If you’re not moving ahead as fast as you’d like, don’t get discouraged. Get creative, get inspired, get focused and get truly enthusiastic about the direction you’re going.

    Then, take the next step, and keep yourself moving steadily toward the goal. Remind yourself that even when you’re going slowly, you’re going solidly in the direction you’ve chosen.

    Yes, the setbacks will certainly come, and when they do, you’ll know exactly how to quickly recover because you’ve been doing it all along. Get back up, face forward, and take the next step.

    Even if it were possible, you wouldn’t want all your dreams to be fulfilled at once. It’s far more satisfying to savor each milestone as it comes, and to know that there will be many more.

    Spend this day celebrating, enjoying and making use of your chance to make a little progress. Feel how great it feels to continue moving forward.

    For Christmas

    May you have joy
    in the mad rush
    of preparation;

    May you know peace
    in the tiny margins
    of time around
    the busy days;

    May you have star-shine
    in clear night skies
    for looking at;

    May you have silence
    now and then;

    and, above all –

    beyond all else –

    May you have love
    to give
    and to receive.

    (Elizabeth Searle Lamb)

    Merry Christmas!

    Never Quit.

    If you stumble, Get Back Up.

    What happened yesterday No Longer Matters.

    Today’s another day, so get back on track, stay on track, and move closer to your dreams and goals.

    YOU CAN DO IT!

    Recipe for a Merry Christmas

    To a cup of tradition, time-honored and dear,
    Add a generous portion of holiday cheer,
    Combine with the memories of Christmases past,
    Then sprinkle the mixture with joy unsurpassed.
    Add a dash of good spirits, stir fondly until
    You set it to rise in the warmth of good will.
    Pour love over all in generous measure,
    And garnish with laughter and heartwarming pleasure.

    ~ Barbara Burrow ~

    This Holiday Season, give yourself the gift of self-motivation:

    1. Review your reasons for wanting to be healthier.

    2. Think about how you felt when you began your new healthy lifestyle. You remember . . . tired, low energy, lots of aches and pains, miserable, embarrassed, etc. and pay close attention to the smallest changes in your body. Think about how far you’ve come so far.

    3. Challenge yourself . . . the try some new, healthy food options; a new form of exercise; walk farther; run faster; whatever. Just make sure the challenge you set is realistic for you.

    4. Set up reminders to keep yourself on track – they can be sticky notes taped to your computer monitor, automatic text messages/emails you send yourself, or anything else that will keep your goals front and center in your mind.

    5. Surround yourself with others who are positive and motivated.

    6. Read success stories or watch them on video.

    7. Learn as much as you can about healthy lifestyles. In this case, education CAN be free! There is a ton of good info on this site or in your local library. Knowledge is POWER!

    8. Just Get Moving! Once you start, you’ll want to keep going.

    9. Keep a record of your progress. Seeing concrete evidence of your improvement will motivate you to do even more/better.

    10. Help others when you can.

    Keep going!

    You are SPARKTACULAR!
