I haven't posted a blog for almost a week. I've been fighting a cold and some days just didn't feel like sparking. I'm going to try to have a normal day today.

    Oh...dear one...I hope you are feeling better. How about a big ole' bowl of chicken noodle veggie soup. You know I'd make you one myself if I were able to...and then I'd give you a big monster hug and a box of keen-nex and tuck you into bed and let you watch t.v. or read or listen to music all day long!

Know that you are loved! emoticon emoticon

Relections on the Lime Fall Challenge

Sunday, November 13, 2011

I love my Lime team. But it's been another challenge with them that I've not done well. I can't seem to get it together. With winter being my busy period with work and the holidays, I will step back and be an honorary member.

Our LTC's we get from Niki every week have been awesome, she has really gotten us to work ourselves. Thanks NIki.

The leader of our team Shannon is one in a million. And Ginger does a fantastic job of keeping track of the Lime stats every week.

Our members are very supportive, inspiring and wonderful.

I'm hoping that I will be ready in the Spring Challenge to participate fully as a Lime once again.

    I've only just maintained during the fall challenge and can't seem to get it together either. We just have to keep plugging along. Soooo agreed that we have awesome leadership on this LIME team, THE BEST team on spark. I also want to thank you for being one of those awesome leaders.

    I understand busyness, so amid the busy work season, make yourself your number one priority this Winter and then you might be ready to make the team part of your priorities again this Spring.
Lots of love,

    Barb, your daily posts and motivations were a shinning point for me. They always lifted me up and inspired me to do better in many ways. By touching the lives of others, yes, you have done exceedingly well in this fall challenge - don't sell yourself short. I am glad you will be an honorary member and still here.

That's a nice blog! I agree about our leaders...Lime team has AWESOME leaders! They work hard for each of us. They make us want to be committed 100% to the team! Barbara, if there is one thing I learned about you during this fall Lime challenge is that you are one of the sweetest people. You ARE positive and I've enjoyed your cute lil posts with positive messages. Sometimes just what I needed for an extra smile that day! I know you put smiles on a lot of people's faces. I completely understand how busy things get. Hang in there and get yourself rested and ready for Spring! Best wishes!

Happy Anniversary Ruby Team !

Wednesday, November 09, 2011

Wishing the Ruby Team and the Ruby-Lites a very happy 3rd anniversary.

And a very special congratulations to our yearly Ruby-Lite, Lainie (LAINIESNEWLIFE). She holds a special place in my heart and truly deserves to be honoured.

From the time I joined and became a Ruby-Lite I knew I had joined a team that made me feel welcome and loved. Our leaders have done their utmost to keep the team going with great challenges, discussion threads and always welcoming new members and recognizing every one of our achievements.





" An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow. '

Sunday, November 06, 2011







Last week was the week I was going to turn it all around, I did much better with food choices, except for a couple of slip ups, but I thought it was better, the scale said different.

I am getting so tired of doing this, but I know I can't quit. This is my life, and it's up to me to get healthy.

I just got the new Spark's Cook Book, I love it. I will be trying some new recipes, I think I'm tired of cooking the same things over and over, time for something different.

Please help me as I struggle to get back onto the path of healthy eating. I'm putting one foot in front of the other, I am going to get it right.


" Get up each morning, look at yourself in the mirror, and see yourself not as someone who is overweight or out of shape, but as the someone you will become. " Dr. Phil McGraw

    good quote from Dr.Phil... the scale is not our friend --for awhile stay off the scale and see how your clothes fit... measure .... by the end of Nov. if you stay on track eating healthy like you know how to... then weigh in and redo your measurements.. see how you feel..and your clothes feel ..
