I'm a mom of 4 and a grandma of 7! I'm tired of being overweight and want to get back to being my fit self again. I'm excited to be apart of this Spark Challenge where I can have clear-cut goals for myself while being encouraged by others who are doing the same. I'm a happy person, I try to see everything for what they are, I see that the glass is half full not half empty. I try to count my blessings and not the mishaps in my life. I try to be open minded that everyone is someone important enough to take time for and be a friend. And I pray to be a virtuous women and to be what God wants me to be. And I pray that I can be a friend to those who feel like they have no friends.

Trust in God, Believe in yourself, dare to dream.

Heroes: My Parents &
All those who have face adversity, Kept their faith and remebered what Jesus said in John 15:5 "Apart from me you can do Nothing."

Live simply... Love generously... Care deeply... Speak kindly...
Leave the rest to God...

Written By Regina Brett, 90 years old, of The Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio

"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most-requested column I've ever written."

My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick.. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck..

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.

16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

19.. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'

27. Always choose life.

28. Forgive everyone everything.

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

33. Believe in miracles.

34.. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.

35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's,we'd grab ours back.

41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

42. The best is yet to come.

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

44. Yield.

45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."

Trust in God, Believe in yourself, dare to dream.

    Hi, hope all is well with you. I did enjoy my Zumba class and love it! I've actually gone a few more times. It's hard for me to catch the classes at the gym because of my son's practice football schedule, but I have the DVDs (along with many others) so there's no excuse not to exercise. I am still walking during his practices. I am having surgery tomorrow morning so I won't be able to do my power walking but I still plan to do some exercises with my weights. I'm looking forward to this week's weigh in. My scale is going down! Guess that means my weight is too! Take care.

    I really dont think spinning is for me just yet, but I am thinking of doing the cardio pump at my gym on Monday. They say you really burn calories there.
    Ive been doing the treadmill and illiptical, also the weight machines.
    Take care.
