January 01, 2019 - Is this the year magic will happen? Get Lean in 2019. It won't happen unless I make it happen! One is not suppose to give up. You just pick yourself up and brush yourself off and try again. Late 2017 I started watching Food Documentaries. They did motivate and inspire me and I managed to get to ONEDERLAND.

I do encourage all my SparkFriends to watch a few of the Food Doc's. There are quite a few of them out there. I don't know how anyone can watch these Food Doc's without wanting to make better food choices, not just for themselves but their whole families. I definitely will be eating more freggies. And cutting way back on my sugar intake in 2019.

I am starting 2019 with BLC39 Spicy Sparkologist Team and Leader of the STOP Team. I will continue my FitBit Challenges with FitBit and SP friends. I will also continue my virtual walks at I am going to try to make use of the Food and Exercise Trackers too.

    Thanks for the sparkgoodie. Reminds me of the song: If I had the wings of a dove, I would fly away and be at rest. It’s an old Caribbean sound:
    I understand the quote is taken from Psalms 55:6. When King David was running for his life from King Saul

    Thanks for the info regarding taking Fitbit into water. I meant to order a small waterproof pocket thing that is designed for ell phone protection and I figured Fitbit would fit in there, too. But, of course, neglected to order. I figured it would be good for beaching! You still amaze me with all your productive activity. Well done, my Friend!
