e3.) Read a daily spark article
4.) Logged into Spark people and connect with my team and spark friends

Here are some inspiring quotes. For the day

Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.

It doesn't matter what you're trying to accomplish. It's all a matter of discipline. I was determined to discover what life held for me beyond the inner-city streets.

Excellent and Funny Thoughts About Walking
1. Walking 20 minutes can add hours to your life. This enables you at 85 years old to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at $8000 per month.
2. My grandfather started walking five miles a day when he was 60.........................Now he's 97 years old and we don't know where he is.
3. I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.
4. I have to walk early in the morning, before my brain figures out what I'm doing.
5. I joined a health club last year, spent about 450 dollars. Haven't lost a pound. Apparently you have to go there.
6. Every time I hear the dirty word "exercise", I wash my mouth out with chocolate.
7. I do have flabby thighs, but fortunately my stomach covers them.
8. If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a very small country.
9. I know I got a lot of exercise the last few years....................just getting over the hill.
10. Every time I start thinking too much about how I look, I just find a "Happy Hour" and by the time I leave, I think I look just fine.
I don't jog............. it makes the ice jump right out of my glass.
The Not-So-Dumb Blonde
A blonde and a lawyer are seated next to each other on a flight from Los Angeles to New York. The lawyer asks if she would like to play a fun game. The blonde, tired, just wants to take a nap, so she politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists and explains that the game is easy and a lot of fun.

He says, "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me five dollars, and vice versa."

Again, she declines and tries to get some sleep.

The lawyer, now agitated, says, "Okay, if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500."

This catches the blonde's attention and, figuring there will be no end to this torment, agrees to the game.

The lawyer asks the first question: "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?"

The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a $5.00 bill, and hands it to the lawyer.

"Okay," says the lawyer, "your turn."

She asks, "What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four legs?"

The lawyer, puzzled, takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references ... no answer. He taps into the air phone with his modem and searches the Internet and the Library of Congress ... no answer. Frustrated, he sends e-mails to all his friends and coworkers but to no avail.

After an hour, he wakes the blonde and hands her $500.

The blonde thanks him and turns back to get some more sleep.

The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, stirs the blonde and asks, "Well, what's the answer?"

Without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5, and goes back to sleep.

And you thought blondes were dumb.

    Can you start and lead a new team for all of your friends to join? Then you could keep their spark going too. Keep your head up and keep on sparking, you will make it through.

    I'm sorry to hear of the events that resulted in a spark loss. I'm fighting to regain mine as well. Just haven't been feeling myself lately & making myself workout has been tough for sure. But day by day we can get back on track.

    Hi KarenMarie! Who was kicked off spark - a SparkLive leader? Not Krystie?? I didn't hear anything about a SparkLive leader being kicked off.

    I have been struggling lately, too..

    You are making a plan and you can do it!!

    Sometimes are flames begin burning out but hold on and stay strong. You will get to the point there the flame burns so bright it is blinding. It may take some time, but I have no dount that you will get there. Those are some great healthy habits you have accomplished!

    So sorry to read that you feel like you are losing your Spark. Hang in there, this is just one of those "bumps on the road", or obstacles that we talk about. Let others be your guides, not your goals - like we talked about in class last night.

    I love that you have a plan to stay on track this week. See, you are such a success and an inspiration to others.

    Your jokes brought a smile to my face. I think it's wonderful that even though you feel like you're losing your spark, you still added happiness and laughter to your post. That just goes to show that your spark is still there! Keep it up and before you know it, your spark will burn like a wildfire!
