Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

Day 6

Day 6 was the best yet. I didn't even workout – it was my day in between strength workouts, but I didn't even make an effort to get in some cardio as I have the other days. Yesterday I had to be in Harwich from 8-3, stop in Dennis to see if the fit coach made it back from a doctor appointment on time, then I had to be in Mashpee (at a restaurant not the club) for dinner with friends at 5:30. There was literally no time to sneak in that extra cardio and what happened to my step count? I had my best day yet. When I took off my watch last night I had 13,686 steps. Whoa. How did I do that?

Since starting the 10,000 Step Wellnes Challenge I have learned two things. For me, logging 10,000 steps a day is not a challenge and raising my awareness of where sugar is hiding in the foods we buy and eat have changed the way my husband and I shop and cook. Sugar wise I've been able to keep added sugar at or below 25g a day. Last night at dinner my friends and I split a wood fired pizza and I even went about that with a different attitude just knowing that wonderful tasting crust is white flour and sugar. Instead of gobbling the thin part of the crust in anticipation of getting to the crispy edge, I just ate the very thin part and left the edges on my plate. Even though I know I should abstain entirely from white food, once in a great while, when eating with friends, I can allow it. My old rule of it's all about what I do everyday, not once in awhile, that makes the greatest difference in my health.

And so, as another day goes by, let day 7 begin, I can't wait to discover the new people and things God is going to lead my 10,000 steps into today, and… I have written.
