Hi everybody!

I'm back from the Cinci Convention. All hyped up and ready to start anew. Start? Is anybody really surprised? Yes, I quit for a long while. The good news is I didn't gain it all back! I am still 6.6 lbs under my starting weight. I'll take it!!! Lol!

The convention was awesome. About 250 in attendance. I was shocked! I thought there would be a cpl thousand! I can't wait til the next one! They practically paid us to go with all the perks. We stayed in a gorgeous suite along the OH River. We were on the 8th floor with balconies on the interior on each floor and wonderful city view from our rooms. Plants and a macaw and fountains were in the main lobby on the 1st floor. Glass elevators, an appetizer get together and a wonderful made to order omelet and breakfast area were also included. We were really made to feel special.

I met Sparkguy and Coach Nicole and Chef Meg and other staff. They were all teriffic. We received a nice goodie bag w a special Cinci SP Convention tee shirt, key chain, pen, notebook, magnet along with the canvas bag. Also included were samples of udderly soft lotion, popchips, trail mix and cranberry raisinet treats. We received a folder w agenda, maps, coupons and I forget what else. I didn't run into anyone I already knew, but we received 16 SparkYourLife Goodie Cards to pass out w our user name on it to make more connections. I met top notch ppl. (Of course we all knew That SP ppl were just that!)

We observed a cooking demonstration by Chef Meg with a recipe card for Blueberry Flax Seed Muffins and plenty of samples. Coach Nicole led us in a yoga stretch session which felt so nice! Sparkguy told us his and the site's story. Very funny! He is very personable. He also told us of a new book entitled The Spark with a more in depth explanation of the four stages and personal stories which will be out in November (?). You may pre-order it here, I think. It was 42 on Amazon's best seller list that day and it hasn't even been released! It's now #8! Chris may be promoting the book on a very popular TV talk show very soon. The largest audience day time talk show which we promised not to tell. She is a billionaire and is of color! I didn't tell!!!

We were taught The Perfect Plate Planner and were given quizes to determine our eating personalities and eating styles. We also learned of The Four Mindful Bites concept.

It was awesome!!!

I can't wait to go again!

Sorry I didn't see you there. :(

Hello Miss Woo Woo!!

Haven't talked to you in a while, I've been struggling with continuing pain from the accident I had in 2008. P.T., massage therapy, countless pain pills and two surgeries later, I'm now trying to get into a pain clinic. This whole business has really fried my fibromyalgia!
I hope all's well with you and yours. LOVE your cockers!!
Take care,
Sandy emoticon

I just read a cure for bad Mondays!

It said that when you're feeling groggy or foggy to sniff ground
sage for an energy boost. Research showed that sage aroma
suppresses the enzyme acetylcholinesterase that prevents the
brain's ability to feel alert and happy! Not only that, but aromatherapy
experts say sage can improve mental focus AND memory!

My personal suggestion is...fresh ground or a good brand of coarse
ground sage. The cheap stuff is very offensive to my nose.

Have a great week and remember to stay focused!

emoticon Hello again, I'm back to see how you are doing and to let you know I'm thinking of you. I sure do miss you!

Here's my tip for today:
You can't be happy all of the time; but you can focus your thoughts on happy things such as family, friends, job, hobbies, or whatever you find important.

Sparkpeople has a great selection of positive articles and comments, here's one of my favorites: http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/quotes

I hope you have a really great week!

Hi, it's been a while since I've stopped by your page to check on you so I thought I'd take a quick moment; how are things going for you?

I read somewhere that one lady stacked empty butter cartons on top of each other as she lost the weight so that she could see what it looked like. Now I picture every pound of my excess weight as a brick of butter; which is also pure fat. So any weight I lose, I mentally stack in the corner of my mind to remind me what it looks like.

Hey... Keep reminding yourself how hard you worked and that you deserve to lose for your efforts; and by all means, keep on keeping on!
