I haven't been on SP as much as I use to when I first joined, or should I say, since I join Facebook.
The time I use to put into exercise, I find I'm on farmTown plowing, planting and harvesting. Or, I'm in Yoville doing coin runs or whatever.
Just pure lazy.
I've already had a bowl of ice cream, Ritz crackers, Dr. P. and York Peppermint Patty. Sure, I did have food...a sloppy joe sandwich.
My jeans fit tight, at least the ones I can get into.
I liked when we had individual challenges, someone would post something to your page to do something. A team would have fruit/veggie challenges for the week, etc.
Well, I'll see how well I do this go round.
We're going to Taco Bell for supper.

I think BLC is my favorite team. Playing virtual kamp has been fun, but hectic. Lots of post to keep up with. If it could have been real camp, it would be better. Actually rowing across the lake is a lot more fun, than cleaning the bathroom at home. Having a pillow fight verses scrubbing the kitchen floor.
What it does do is work my body. I've been so lax lately. I finally made it to maintenance, but didn't keep up any routine. Personal matters came into play that took my time as well.
Now, I'm back. I still have to work on my diet. I've gotten back into the Dr. Pepper, ice cream and potato sticks craze.
Going to 'Kamp' I'm getting back into doing exercises and keeping accountable.
I look forward to starting the new challenge in Sept.

Life is a changin'. My mom lives here now. I went to Ohio to help her pack up, etc, etc.
I help her get up in the mornings, after she rings the little bell. (I saw it at her house and thought it was cute, duh!). I help wash her. I let her do what she can as she needs to keep her limbs limbered up or she'll be bed ridden.
She can walk with the aid of the dining room chair on wheels.
I guess I am lucky. She could have dementia and not be able to do anything for herself.
Who knows what time will bring.
I've let my eating and exercise habits go. Fortunitly I am still in my weight goal. I can feel the inches adding on though.
At least I know I can lose the inner and outer thighs and hips, it is a fact!
Mom's room was our junk room. Now the den, where I exercise, is our junk room.
I know, I know, get rid of the junk. Not as easy as it sounds.
When I was up north, I was inspired to get rid of my clothes and paraphanelia. But, being back home...I lost the inspiration. Maybe a little depressed, selfishly.
Jim and I could go out to the grocery store and not worry about how long we'd be gone. I do have an ex-nurse coming to help get her up, breakfast, etc while I go to a doctor appt with Jim.
Some say I need to schedule some alone time with Jim, go out to dinner, etc. Maybe someday. Whatever.
I am blessed that I have this time with my mom and that she is of sound mind and gets around somewhat and can do somethings for herself.

What would I do without SparkPeople? I've learned how to exercise and eat. I've lost inches. My quads haven't been this thin since...can't remember. Now if I could just get my triceps in shape. I can even see some daylight between my legs when I stand with my legs together. It makes me feel more confident and I can wear smalls again!
I noticed that my quads are still a bit saggy when doing the shoulder stand. You know when you throw your legs over your head and your quadriceps are hanging in your face. Not a pretty picture.
I've got to really get into better shape, so when I go up north on vacation I won't have too much to do when I come back home. I won't have my treadmill up there or all my exercise tapes or computer...unless I can borrow time on a friend's PC. I'll know how to eat and what exercises to do while I'm away.
That's all for now.

I hope Wilddear gets this Blog as I was unable to pull up your sparkpage.
One thing that you can do on the Wii Fit that you can't on a video is to see your trainer from front or back. You can change the view.
You create your own little person and as you run she runs, if you slow, she slows. It counts the steps and minutes of your exercise.
If your Wal-Mart has one set up, you should try it. Wal-Mart has different gaming stations set up. Usually kids are hogging them.
I still like to use videos too, but you go at their speed.
You can train on balance too.
I think you'll like it.
