Sparkpeople has been very fun and helpful to me in the past, until a busy season of life made it feel more than I could keep up with. We relocated from Illinois to Louisville, KY about a year and a half ago, and I am feeling the need for the connection and accountability again, so, as the Terminator said, "I'm baaaaack!" My goal continues to be to switch from a mindset of seeking easy and immediate gratification to one of making the kind of choices that will lead to more self confidence, physical and emotional well being, and self control. On a more specific note, this translates to a desire to get to the weight and fitness level I desire and to STAY THERE CONSISTENTLY! I've heard this is possible. Rumors and legends abound. My personal quest is to find my own route to this magical place and set up housekeeping there. "Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it." - Goethe

    I wondered what the life insurance is for those guys that climb to the top of the towers. Of course they have their safety harness. I saw the last guy clip the harness to the helicopter before it flew off. My stomach did turn though lol. I'm pretty gutsy, but not that gutsy. Hope your Friday is a good one!

    That was the San Bernardino Mountains where your Son lived. We had a fire that got that close to us as well a couple of years ago. Where is your Son living now?

    Thanks for your comment on my blog--it reminds me of quote. Unfortunately, I don't quite remember it, but to paraphrase---if I didn't laugh, I'd cry, and I'd rather laugh than cry." Yeah, definitely. Anything that doesn't kill you hopefully you can laugh at later *grin*
