I really like this! I want to use this and for myself add one more Re - reuse, meaning instead of buying more things I will look for ways to reuse/recycle what I have into new things. I am new to Spark and am looking forward to a positive new year!

Happy New Year!

December's goal recap..a day late and a few pounds short haha!!

Saturday, January 01, 2011

Hi Happy New Year everyone!!
I'm a day late with this but I have a bad case of the flu!! It felt like a bad cold coming on but yesterday I woke up with sore throat, body aches, fever and chills and running eyes and nose!! Today it's more of the same with no voice and nausea :( Not how I planned to ring in the new year!! I couldn't drive my neighbor or go to the party!!oh did I mention it was -20 with a wind chill of -35 all can only get better from here..well maybe not since about 2 hours ago the water works in the basement sprung a leak's all fixed now but hubby had a melt down first..Happy friggin new year to you too, haha

Now for my recap of December's goals..

emoticontea..I did drink tea most days and it did help lots :)

emoticonexercise..rode bike most days and did lots of activities (cleaning, painting etc)

emoticonwater..8 cups and tea..most days :)

emoticonhealthy food, portions and small amounts of treats..well had a few too many days over my calories and a few more cookies than necessary!!

emoticonhome most of my painting finished and happy with results :)

emoticonChristmas preparations..everything got ready and was just wonderful for all my Christmases :)

emoticonstreaks..kept up all my streaks (caught up with some tracking but logged on every day) and only missed a few blogging days :)

emoticontime for self..really did take lots of time for myself, finished reading one book and half done another, read lots and lots of magazines, took time to connect with friends, family and sparks...tea and a few too many treats :(

emoticongive something to somebody daily..well I sent out over 50 cards, gave gifts to all my family and lots of friends, shared baking trays with about 10 people, gave all my spark friends Christmas gift goodies, daily shared positive encouragement to spark people..success!!! :)

emoticongoal weight 195..I was quite conservative with a 2 pound loss goal, I started at 197 and an now at 199 so instead of losing 2 pounds I gained 2 pounds but I'm not too badly disappointed as it could have been a lot worse and I did partake in every kind of holiday party and treat, just in moderation so I'm happy with this out come!!! Hope you all had just as a successful on to January and the new year..fresh start, turn the page, fresh page etc....

I'll put my New years resolutions in its own blog. so I'll sign off now..hope you all had a great new years eve and were not sick like me..We watched some jr. hockey, had pizza and beer for supper, talked on the phone some and then watched a movie and was in bed by 11 pm...

Have the best 2011..keep on sparkin'

Love Donna

December's almost over!!

Thursday, December 30, 2010

Hi..just a quick blog..we went to Weyburn and did a bit of shopping's really cold here :( Hope it's nicer for tomorrow night..we're invited to a party!

When we got home I made a quick supper, put away my shopping, hubby did chores..a friend from BC phoned to have a holiday visit...My neighbors daughter left a message while I was on the neighbor's brother died this afternoon...She needs a ride to Weyburn tomorrow morning as her son has chores to do, so I'll drive her up unless it's storming..then her son will drive.

I have the start of a cold coming on so I had some raspberry tea with honey and lemon..feeling yucky :(

The year is flying by and I'm looking forward to a new year and fresh start and all that.. tomorrow I hope to do my December goals wrap up..and then post new years resolutions and January goals on Saturday!!

Happy New year to you all and keep on sparkin'

Thanks for dropping by for tea and a chat :)

Take care, love Donna...

    Thanks so much Donna for the reminder that I need to start working on goals for the New Year. I think I'll start with small goals and work up to larger ones.
Time for tea for me too!

Best wishes,

I'm back blogging....

Wednesday, December 29, 2010

Hi I'm back after the busy Christmas...I did log on everyday and eventually catch up tracking food and exercise so now that I'm all caught up I'm back to blogging.

We had a really great Christmas..strung out over a week long!! with early Christmas the weekend before and that was fabulous to have all three kids home :) Then we had neighbor over for Christmas Eve, then went to son's girlfriend's parent's for Christmas Day ( We had a great time but I was feeling a bit blue over how spectacular their house was compared to our retched shack..gotta get over those Christmas blues!!) Then son and girlfriend were here for 3 days :) We played games, watched tv and movies, drank beer, watched hockey and ski-dooed and over ate..of course. Then yesterday other neighbors came to I've had a busy week since I last blogged!!!

I have been riding my recumbent bike lots and watched my new shred video (Not much calorie burn in watching it haha) That just goes to show what a lazy week I've been having and the scale has reflected's up a bit but nothing drastic!!! Son hooked up my Wii Fit and we've done some of the activities on that and other Wii games!! When I stand on the Wii fit board it goes "oh" and hubby says it's saying "owww!" haha.

I've been getting ready for my December goal update and working on New Year's Resolutions (always make them!!) and January goals too!!

I finished one Christmas book and have started on another one..I like to read while I ride my bike :)

The weather is supposed to turn really cold and snowy for the next few days so hope it`s not so cold we don`t go out New Years Eve..a ball team friend is having the party..I asked her what we should bring and she suggested our pjs I guess in case the weather turns bad or we over party haha!!

Well it feels good to be back blogging..I missed everyone and all your kind comments!!!

I have a little article to share from Woman`s World magazine....

This day is a gift for you to unwrap. It`s a fresh start if you want it to be. It`s a chance to let go of old hurts, discover new joys and take another step forward toward your beautiful future. And it`s the perfect time to take time for you!! This day holds 1,440 minutes. Enough for you to spend some on YOU!!!

I`ve really slacked off on tea..instead did some evening snacking..not good. But now I really know how good the tea works just to get back to it..I`m all for fresh starts in the new year...look out we come :)

Thanks for stopping by for a chat and some tea :)

Take care, keep on Sparkin` and see you tomorrow!!!

    So glad your back blogging. I love to read your stories.
Always so cute and uplifting. That needs to be my new years resolution, blogging. I love reading others but don't like writing them.
Anyway thank you for sharing your thoughts.

    Hello Donna -- We're in the middle of a blizzard watch, so you probably are either in it, or expecting it. It hasn't been too bad so far, I think I could still get my car underway were I so inclined... However, I just made myself a nice cup of cocoa, so I will sit and have that while you have your tea.

I hope that your livestock have good shelter. I'm glad I don't have to go anywhere tomorrow.

Yesterday I got stuck on the county road into work. I picked the wrong set of ruts to follow and got high centered right in the middle of the road about 2/3 of the way through the drift. So I had to hoof it the rest of the way and get someone to pull me out. I got my cardio in for sure. I've just lost my touch for navigating in this much snow.

Ah yes, this too shall pass --- in another three months or so...

Merry Christmas Eve...

Saturday, December 25, 2010

Hi..we had the neighbor over for supper so this will be a quick's getting late and tomorrow is Christmas :) Woo hoo!!

I got all my goodies delivered!!

"And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so?
It came with out ribbons. It came without tags.
It came without packages,boxes or bags.
And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something, he hadn't before.
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store?
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?"
Dr. Seuss

Here's hoping your Christmas is everything it should be!!

Love Donna
