    I have only gone waterskiing a couple times so I never learned how to do it on one ski - I think I tried and then promptly face-planted. :)

Definitely something on my list of things to do again. I remember it feeling like flying over the surface of the water... great sensation of speed.

I did it in CELEBRATION.....

Sunday, August 22, 2010

Celebration of a friend and his MAJOR mile marker on his journey.....

here's the setting:
ToddJames is a friend! He was 1 lbs away from being OVERWEIGHT, saying goodbye to Obese forever! Well....I threw it out to our team that they MIGHT want to encourage and push Todd this week because if he didn't make it to Overweight, there would be a physical challenge for the entire team in his honor. Fair enough, right...all it good fun ofcourse! WELL, this brought a stir to the forum as you can imagine, cheering for Todd, pushing , etc...THEN Todd opens HIS mouth and says something like, "You can count on me team, I will lose this pound, AND when I do, Jerome has to UP his Sunday morning run by 20%"!!! WHAT WAS HE THINKING??? Oh OK....all in good fun...I can do this I thought. Then Larry(the FlaBeachBum and Mari (MGriffith32) and Nicholas (absolutezer0) all jumped on board with me, extending their Sunday runs as well, HOW COOL IS THIS!! A friendly challenge tossed out that has the team up and moving....I LOVE THIS I thought to myself!

OK.....Friday Morning Todd PROUDLY announces that he's no longer obese emoticon and we all celebrate with him, that's a big day really, I remember my day when that happened!

SO here we are on Sunday Morning......I got up and I DID IT IN CELEBRATION.......

    OK...so I have thought about it all morning...honestly Jerome...I STILL have NO WORDS! I am NOT sure there is another Team Leader out there...that would take the time to challenge a fellow team member to push themselves to be their BEST and think to motivate the ENTIRE TEAM at THE SAME TIME!

Don't get a BIG HEAD...but you are BRILLIANT!

Thanks again...now...enough about that...people from other teams are questioning the MAKE IT HAPPEN LOVEFEST!

    First off...the funny guy is STILL at a loss for words (tough for me...)! All this fuss...over a pound!

Jerome, you and the team have shown me WHY this website is quickly becoming such a HUGE part of my journey AND becoming a HUGE SENSATION throughout the world!

Often on this journey...you can feel alone, frustrated, emotional, and about 10,000 other emotions! Occasionally, you get lucky enough to find the right friend, the right team that becomes like a family, and the right support to make it happen!

So yes...it was only one pound...but it seemed to inspire me, you, and a HOST of others...and THAT my friend...is greater than anything measured by 16 ounces!

Thanks to EVERYONE for their support...we ARE IN IT...to WIN IT!

So, give me 10 minutes to get ready.....and I'm off. 4 miles--a new record for me----in honor of TODDJAMES-------who needs to fill me in on the Ranch Dip River!!!! Jerome says that's up to you, buddy!!!!!

Shenanigans at Gymnastics Club

Saturday, August 21, 2010

So the gym had a back to school bash today that was done right!

Potluck could have been more healthy, but you know how that goes. Fried Potato wedges, fried chicken, cookies galore, chips, there was a fair amount of salads, pasta salads(I made the BEST on there!!), sandwiches, etc. I didn't do too badly I don't think.

I LOVE these events because its' OPEN GYM and the parents get to play on the equipment if we want! WELL GUESS WHAT...I WANT!!

I got on the Trampoline for probably 45 minutes and had a blast. The girl on the tramp next to me about fell off hers when she saw me to a backflip! I laughed!! She looks at me and said "but you're old" I laughed again, harder! I'll show her I thought. So.....she would do a trick and I'd follow her and do it also. She complained about my back tuck verse my back layout, whatever little girl...I DID IT!! HAHAHA I did back flip after back flip, and a few front flips too. (front scare the pee water out of me) I did NOT get a pic of the trampoline worth keeping, sorry.

Then I moved to HIGH BAR!! I only did this for a little bit, because the last time I got a HUGE rip in my hand bleed everywhere and hurt for a week or better! I was trying to swing on the bar and do a back flip into the foam pit below. Well, I never made it around, but I tried! It appears that it's really harder than it looks.

I had my 6 year old take this pic on my phone just to prove was there.


Tons of fun.......burned some calories.....hung out with some friends.....not a bad day at all!!

APPENDIX.....I WILL get video of me doing a backflip!

    Please tell me you didn't pee on the trampoline while front flipping! And I pray you didn't pee in all that foam under the high bar--although it looks kind of low from the pic or are you very tall----oh, yeah, it's a kids gym!!

Did I read somewhere that your oldest is 6? My oldest, well my only, so that makes him my oldest, youngest, and everything else--is 28!!!!!!! How dare that little girl call YOU old!!!!

SPREADING THE SPARK

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

So I went to the chiropractor today about my sciatic nerve issue. I pretty much know WHEN and WHERE I hurt it, but I wonít go into that.(Gotta protect the innocent) I admit that I donít visit the Chiro much and I had to be talked into going. (Thanks Michelle for you and your husbands thought and advice!!) Nice office, fairly typically first visit, sign a million documents, get a quick tour, put in a room and wait. Spoke with Victor the Dr. Assistant first, question after question, poke here, pull there, bend me this way, then that way, and oh by the way, does this hurt, WELL DUH!! It wasnít too bad really, only everything he did on the right side hurt, left side, no issues. So Victor leaves and Iím alone again, playing paper toss on my iPhone, HA.

Here comes the Dr. McCormick. Typical meet and greet making some small talk about the information that Victor had taken. We got to the question about weight gain/loss. Heck, the question was there, so I answered it honestly. He asked how Iíve managed to lose 93lbs since December?! I told him that there is the website that I use called SparkPeople.com. Iíll have you know he wrote it down!! I talked about the fact that there are meal plans available, the stages of the diet, nutritional tracking, fitness tracking, etc. We talked about the teams and the importance of that, the forums and support that is offered from member to member. Dr. McCormick starts to smile and said he was just 10 minutes before talking to a client about their nutrition, or lack there of. He spoke of the training that his office staff is doing to help others with full health and wellness. I started smiling and interjected that I am now passionate about helping others these days. He clapped his hands and said he loves that word! PassionÖ. Dr mentions the fact that heís holding classes at his office twice a week now on wellness, would I be willing to share my story at a meeting, well, anybody that knows me, knows I said YES right away. I then showed him my before pic and his jaw hit the floor!

In the long run, we spoke A LOT about SparkPeople and the great things SP does every day. The Dr. mentioned that he thinks he and I will be friends for a long time due to our focus being so similar. I will be back at his office on Monday evening to give my testimony and spread the SPARK!!

I had to share this story because I left his office feeling GREAT and even MORE PROUD of SparkPeople than I was before.

Iíve said it before and Iíll say it againÖÖ..I LOVE SPARKPEOPLE


(btw - I'm doing therapy now for the sciatic issue)

It is so great that medical people are on board with it too because that adds a note of legitimacy if you have never heard of it before -- my wife heard about it from a nutritionist at Mayo Clinic and that is how we got started.

  Congrats!!! I just started running this spring and missed all of May & June due to a broken foot. I am running in my 2nd 5k next weeked. Super excited!!! My goal it to do it in 37 minutes...I am a VERY slow runner!!! I did my first on in 41 minutes so that would be a great improvment.
