I finally updated my Spark Page! Not a lot, but some. I rewrote my introduction and defined some of my goals. Hope this gives me the kick that I need to get that last four pounds gone! I need to have someone take some pictures of me that I like so I can add those to my page as well. Good thing we've gone digital...it may take a very long time to get a picture that I like! LOL!
In June, I will celebrate both my two-year Spark-iversary and my 20-year anniversary. I'm trying to decide how to celebrate them both. Any ideaas?

Kids are watching Titanic. I wish they weren't. I bawled like a little baby when the mommy put her two little kids to bed while the boat was sinking. I do NOT need to see that again!
DH took me out to dinner. Buffalo Wild Wings. Tried the boneless wings...not impressed. Don't have to have those again. Think of all of the calories I'm saving!
Need some new workout shoes. Keep hoping that I can get the time to go buy some, but it hasn't worked out.
My baby is turning 11 on Wednesday. So far, I've bought pumpkin and frosting for his birthday. He is very excited! No...it's not what you're thinking! (Dirty birds! LOL!) Since he cannot have gluten and is not a big fan of chocolate, I am making a pumpkin cake for his birthday. It is really very tasty even without frosting. But, he likes the frosting, so he gets frosting. Really need to buy some gifts, send out invites, generally plan the whole darn thing! LOL!
Making potato soup tomorrow. If I don't, have of my lunches for this next week will be air. Air is not very filling, in case you were wondering.
Taxes have been filed and we are getting a refund. A new dishwasher is in my future!!! Dish machine...not new kid to hand wash.
Did my fifth day of JM's 30-Day Shred. Good thing it's only 20 minutes! Dang that sucked! But I felt so much better after I did it. I even did full (boy) push ups for the whole first 30-second interval and then four more in the second one before I had to switch to modified. Yay me!
Really should start some more auctions for DH but I don't wanna. I have so many things I should do and I just don't wanna. And I'm a grown up so I don't have to so there. Ppffftttttt!
Okay, that's enough for now. Brain is less full now. Not of anything important, mind you. But I'm sure we'll all sleep better now for my sharing. tee hee

Does anyone else hate that saying? I realize that it is supposed to be motivating, but to me it just isn't! I figure there are two ways to interpret it.
First, I did it so that means you should be able to. If you can't, you must be the biggest loser ever! Well, I happen to love geometery, especially the logic problems (yeah, I know NERD!). So, to me logic problems make sense and some of them are easy. If I can do them, anyone can! NOT!! LOL!! I have a very good friend who is very intelligent. She just isn't a math person. She can write very well. Very descriptive, very well worded and she'd probably tell me that I used the word very too many times in this sentence. Just cos she can do something doesn't mean I can. And vice versa!!! Ugh!
Okay, second intepretation. I am such a total loser that I can't do anything at all. I did manage to do this one thing. Since I can't do anything and I did this, anyone else can do it, so I'm still not special. WHATEVER!!!! You should never downplay your achievements! Everything you have worth having, you worked for and earned! Don't put yourself down by saying anyone could have done it. You did it and you should be proud!
What put me up on my little soap box? I was watching the Dr. Oz Show at the gym and he started some neighborhood weight loss challenge. The leader of the team was some guy named Rocco (or Rocko or Rock Oh, I don't know how to spell it!). Apparently, this guy has lost about 45 pounds in 6 or 7 months. That is amazing! It is hard to lose weight. If you lose weight because you worked at it, be proud. Rocco is the one who said that if he could do it, anyone can. Grrr.....No, I'm not starting my rant again! LOL!!
Okay, on that note, I'm going to finish my sparking fun, finish my book (only 30 pages left!), and then go to bed. If I can do it, anyone can! LOL!

Not only can I say it...I can act it out! LOL!! I'm going to start out with a list of excuses. None are valid, but that matters not! I'm doing it anyway.
Really long, boring day at work. Tired of being bored and asking the boss and having him not rearrange some of the work...especially since the new guy is buried!
Hungry all day. Don't know why, just was. Ate all of my healthy snacks that I took and did not go to the vending machine.
Gave blood. 'Nuff said! LOL!
Kids didn't do their chores...again. Made me cranky! Okay...crankier! LOL!
Anyway, after dinner, DH said that he would buy if I would fly...ice cream. Okay! said I (after about a millisecond hesitation, if that). Of course, I didn't want ice cream. Mostly, I wanted out of the house. Went to the grocery store and bought ice cream for the family and Lorna Doone cookies for me. I had two servings (and no servings in the car on the way home! I wanted to, but I didn't!) and then I put the cookies away. STEP AWAY FROM THE COOKIES! DANGER, DANGER!
So, not only did I enable DH's craving, I enabled my own! I also didn't go to the gym, even tho I dressed for it. I decided that I needed to stay home and get some work done. After all, I gave blood and I'm supposed to rest up. (Told you I had a list of excuses!)
I'm feeling less cranky now. Tomorrow is Friday and another chance for the boss to give me something to do! Plus, it's pizza night. Chicken, garlic, artichoke, bacon pizza, here I come!!
Oh yeah, and when I asked my son what I should blog about, he said to blog about how handsome he is, how much I love him and how much money I'm going to give him. So here it is...Very, Lots, Zero!

The Spark People Wheel, that is. I have two, which I will now explain to you in great detail. That's great as in wonderful, awesome, outstanding. Not great as in lots of details.
First theory...if you spin the wheel last, after you've done everything else to earn Spark Points, you will get more points. I have proved that this theory is true on many occasions. There are days when I have very few points from other activities, I spin the wheel and get 1 point. Other days, I get as many as I can and then get the top prize, sometimes as many as 25 points! Unfortunately, I've also proved this theory wrong when the exact opposite happens. Not ready to say this one is busted though. More study is required.
The second theory is that if you add up all of the points you've ever gotten off the wheel and divide by the number of times you've spun the wheel, the number will be three. Three is the most common number (it seems like anyway). If you win one of the 500 Spark Point prizes (for Goodies), you get three points. One plus five, divided by two equals three. Same with 4+2...I have neither proved nor disproved this theory. Mostly because it would require that I keep a running tab of how many points I get each time I spin the wheel. Not that I'm opposed to that! I LOVE stuff like this and Excel is awesome for it. In fact, I'm composing what the spreadsheet would look like as I'm typing this. And it includes both theories!! I'm brilliant!!
Anyway, back to why I haven't done it yet. I keep forgetting. Hard to track trends if you can't remember what they are! LOL!
BTW...I got three points on the wheel today.
