My points!!

Thursday, May 13, 2010

Yeah I'm here doing my SP, going into what I missed & here I thought I was being given points..
I seen I had 91 points so far-ok that's really great,BUT here I am thinking I'm collecting more points just to go & check it out that I still have 91 points..(did at least 10 I missed)
When we click on to receive points if we reached our limit we get a message on SOME of the points limits but what gives..
Sitting here with my butt killing me trying to get all I have done for NOTHING!!

    You can always check it out on clicking on the my points and see what points you have gotten and where you can still get points. Somedays because of my internet connection it doesn't matter what I do it just doesn't give me points, hope it works for you today! Hugs!

    Do you mean when you read another article and you've already received the max points for articles? That's happened to me too. I think it would make more sense to have a day maximum rather than a maximum by item.

ALL I wanted was a NICE garden....

Monday, April 26, 2010

YES that is just what I tried to do..
BUT little did I know that the 'good'I THOUGHT I was doing was creating a GREAT heath problem for me.
YES I had a very busy day yesterday with work & all BUT I was taken to the emergency room cause of a 'reactin' my skin was having after working in my garden on saturday before going to work.
I had purchaced 8 bags of the red wood chips to place around in my garden to look nice.
WELL the stuff the company treats the wood chips with has a weed killer in it.
YES I wore long pants socks sneakers & I had long sleeve shirt on & heavy garden gloves.
YES I moved the chips around by a gloved hand & I racked them out too.
I didnt know the weed killer was hurting me(the dust was in contact with my clothing).
I when finished with my gardening I had to get ready for work which yes I had to take a shower which felt like the water was kinda too hot.I kept on turning up the cold water so I could finish.
WELL that shower activated the weed killer on me,I have blistered skin everywhere on me except my face which the Dr, thought was strange.
I am now on prednisone for the next two weeks,I even HAD to miss my workout this morning for no sleep last night didnt get home till almost 4am.
I couldnt even get on here to do my SP,cause of being in the hospital.
SO this BLOG is a warning to all who garden PLEASE beware of what is in the wood chips, heck even the bag never listed the what was in it the weed killer poison control contacted the Company to get them.
I was also told to beware of the mulch you get from bulk/trucked cause it may have poison ivy or oak in it.
I never used it before & NOW I am ever so sorry I did.
SO this is heads up to all!

    Well I'm still having problems with my hands.
The Dr, put me back on steriods & I have a steriod based cream that I have to put on my hands & fingers.
I still have no feeling on my finger tips.
So PLEASE all beware of the wood chips you buy.

    I am sorry you had a bad experience, but it truly stop me from whining about breaking my hosta plant apart and planting it in different locations through out my yard, when I came home they had fallen flat, thought they were thirsty, but realize i didn't plant them deep enough. Life is so funny, there is always a story to share.

    You had a very severe allergic reaction! I am just so thankful the doctors were able to get it under control!

You are actually a very lucky lady since your body was going into anaphylactic shock.

My DH is too cheap to buy mulch so I am pretty safe myself.

This was a terrible way for you to learn what is in the mulch and chips.

The prednisone should help but I am really sorry it is needed.

    How scary! I don't use wood chips, but have in the past. There should definitely be a warning on that. I do hope the medicine starts working soon. It's a wonder someone hasn't filed a lawsuit about that. Did you contact the place you bought it from so they could contact the manufacturer?

    Wow. That's scary. So happy to hear that you are getting treatment. I heard of some mulch made from cocoa plants that was making animals sick too. What the heck are they doing with these products??

Glad you are on the mend.

    Go figure, I join your team and you're now getting booted. Is that just a coincidence?

Good suggestions from the previous posting. I was having issues using Internet Explorer so now I use Mozilla Firefox and no problems.

I wish you well my friend and hopefully things will look up for you soon.

    Sorry you're having problems with SP. Do you have this problem with other sites you have to log into?

Some things that might help:
- Delete your browser history and cookies
- Delete your temporary internet files & defrag your computer
- Run a virus scan on your computer.
- Post on the tech support message boards here (if you computer will let you) asking for advice.

If you have questions about how to do those things, just send me a spark mail and i'll explain.

Work it like a MAN!!

Friday, April 16, 2010

Yepper all you women out there.
To get a full benefit from your strenght training they say to NOT use the little girlie 3lb weights yet not even 5lb weights.
YA got to shoot for a weight that is a bit of stress & you can feel with each lift.
I was watching the TV show the Doctors, & they said that to keep your engine burning you have to create muscle & you cant do it with the little weights & 1000 reps!
Ok Me I use a controlled weight lift
I'm up to lifting 110lbs which is 55lbs on each side..
GOT to laugh about this cause my hubby cant do it!
HE is 50lbs heavier than I & he can only control 45lbs on each side.
BUT i watch him & he is doing it like it's so easy.
I told him to add more weight ...YEAH RIGHT.
WELL I know that the TV show is so correct cause I feel muscle & see more muscle & I'm truely LOVING IT!!
SO work it like a MAN!!!

    you've got it!! work it, baby.

I have read some info from bowflex, and they talk about increasing the weight until you can only do between 8 and 12 reps....if you can do more than that, time to up the weights.

    I like ur title Chris! LOL!

But also lets be real and say add caution to that becz I have lifted heavy when i was not ready to and I have pulled a few things on my body. I wld add to lift a weight that is difficult to get finish the last few reps and you will still gain the muscles. When that gets easier and you can pump out more then of course it is time to up the ante! But you work it girl!!!
