Good Stuff, and Annoying Adverts Hijacking our Words on SP

Saturday, January 22, 2011

The good stuff? I can do proper crunches at last! All that practising sit-ups on the bed has meant that my abs have enough oomph in them to lift me now, and I can lie on the floor on a yoga mat and crunch. Not a huge number, and probably still needing a little form work, but it is there and I'm doing them! YAY!!! I also tried Crunches with Twist (trickier), and Bicycle Crunches this week. This is the joy of using the exercise generator. I am trying to do everything it offers me on any given day because I figure that if I don't try at intervals I won't know if I'm improving. :-)

I still don't feel particularly comfortable laid on the floor, but it is better, definitely. So, something else I thought I'd never manage is accomplished! How cool is that? :-)

I Iz A Happy Exercise Bunny! :-)



Now onto my irrits for the day...

Who else has seen their words transformed into pop-up ads on their team pages etc here at Spark? Can I just say I hate this intrusion into my posts! It implies that I have something to do with these ads when they are attached to my words. It suggests that I endorse whatever is being advertised, which I absolutely don't, and this is unacceptable! Not only that, but the damn things open if you accidentally hover your mouse over the highlighted word, and then you can't see to read your friend and teammates' comments. It is like having some rude person keep interrupting when you are trying to have a conversation with friends. We won't put up with that in real life, so why should we put up with this rudeness here at SP?

Don't get me wrong. I am fine with the adverts around SP, because they help keep the site free to use, and I get that and have no problem with it generally speaking. This is a step too far however, and I have registered my complaint on the community boards here:

www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageb
oard.asp?imparent=22692192&imboard=5


Just in case anyone else wants to add their name to the list. :-) There is a growing number of topics started on the Message Boards by people unhappy with this intrusion on their posts.

OK. Moan over. :-)

Enjoy your weekend! And if my blog contains any ads, please feel free to ignore those that don't involve sending me cash. LOL

Hugs,
Lex xxx

This is the kind of advertising I like:

    So that's what it is! I saw some words highlighted in a blog or message board post, can't remember which, and it was a link to an ad. That is going way too far. Good job on the crunches!! I cannot do them properly yet, so will try on the bed, too.

So far I've been very fortunate that I haven't had to deal with the any of the ads popping up, but then again I'm usually only on the team page or my blog...after working on a computer all day, I don't spend much time looking around SP site. Not sure if that is cause or not...but yay so far!

Have an excellent weekend my friend.

I haven't had that ad experience. Guess I'm not posting enough these days. I've seen them on other sites, but I haven't encountered them here yet. I'll keep my eyes out for them.
Hooray on your good work with your crunches. You are taking a great approach to building your strength. I have been inspired to follow your lead in the ab department. Thanks for the boost.
Have a happy evening and keep up the good work.

It must be the Full Moon!

Friday, January 21, 2011

It must be the Full Moon, because people and dogs around here are acting crazy! I feel like howling, and not just at the moon! Seriously! Yesterday's walk at Highwoods was incredibly stressful, which is something I never thought I'd say. Every snappy, snarly, aggressive dog in the area seeemed to converge on Highwoods during the hour we were up there. We were both nervous wrecks by the time we got home, and it took all my courage to go out there again today.

Today, by comparison, was serenity itself, apart from the fact that I thought I was seeing things when we walked into the park and the poo bin was gone! I did a double-take, and a triple one too, blinking, and even checking to see if I had my glasses on! LOL But it definitely wasn't there.

Today I had to stand and stare!
I met a bin that wasn't there,
It wasn't there when I came back,
I think my brain is out of whack!

The man who came to clean the bin,
Well, I was just as stunned as him.
He looked and looked and all in vain,
And so he went away again.

But then his boss went deeper in,
And in the park he found the bin.
Someone had moved it in the night,
My gosh they gave us all a fright.

They parked the bin much further in,
But buried the pedal for opening him,
Now who would move a dog poo bin,
From by the park to further in?

And move some other bins as well,
But not a soul decide to tell?
Today has certainly been weird,
The day the Poo Bin disappeared.

By Me xxx

Enjoy your day everyone!
Hugs,
Lex xxx

    hahahahaa yesssss, if only...
Thursday, my day from hell, things got like that here on the island. Not only was I ..errr, a little under the weather (HAH!) but I was also seriously PMS-ing and to top it all, after I made the effort to arrange a play date for my dog, she decides to run all the way out of the park and to the garbage containers and have herself a feast of who-knows-what! needless to say, I had had enough and took that dog home and ignored her until next day. Was only later that I remembered meeting people with dogs on leashes (highly unusual on the island) saying it's because their dog went too far exploring ...Then yesterday we all got to talk and decided must have been something in the air because every one of us had a bad dog on thursday.
And I thought you were not writing your blogs! Lazy as I am, never came to check ...tctctc emoticon

Lots of Wedding Photos

Friday, January 14, 2011

Sorry the photos aren't in a proper order as such, but I had so many to go through it would have taken me all weekend to do them chronologically. These are just a small selection from the total, and there are still more to come apparently. Feel free to skip this blog if wedding photos aren't your thing. For those who have been waiting to see these, I hope they were worth the wait. :-)



My favourite Bride and Groom Photo, which came about because the registrar said that as the guests would spend most of the ceremony staring at their backs, it might be nice if to start with, they turned and faced us all and did whatever they felt was appropriate. :-) So they did. :-)



Listening to readings:



By the Bridge:



Uncle of the Bride (my brother Chris) escorts Bryony to Rob:



Waiting for the Photoshoot on a cold December day. Need inner glow, so Real Ale, obviously! LOL I made the bouquet by the way. :-)



The bride and Groom and their helpers:



I am picking you up. Stop wriggling!



Bride, Groom and bouquet:



The Chef responsible for the fabulous food. The venison casserole with dumplings was beyond magnificent!



The College gang:



The Wedding Cake:



Cutting the cake:



Rob's Mum and Dad:



The complete wedding party:



And Harry, Rob's brother, the guy who took the picture!



The Hen Party, and yes, it did include Adrian as an honorary hen for the evening. Don't ask! LOL



I guess as we were in the country at a Manor House, an air hunting party was inevitable (like air guitar but with guns) LOL



Left to Right:
Harry, Bryony, Robert, Debbie, David (aka Rob's brother, Bry, Rob, Rob's Mum and dad)



Kissing... Well, it is a wedding! LOL



Being a gentleman, Rob insists on carrying Bryony across the wet grass, but he forgot she was ticklish... or did he...



Aah, that's better...



Mother of the bride doing her reading:



Me and my Children :-)



My Family and Other Animals:



My side of the Family - Left to right...
Brian (engaged to Liz my sister), Liz (my sister LOL), Tara (daughter 2), Me, Lydia(step great niece), Bryony (Bride), Rob (Son-in-law and Groom), at Rob's feet is Robbie (little nephew, son of my brother), Chris (my Brother), below him is Dan (slightly bigger nephew), Sas (Sarah, Brother's partner), Steph (Niece, daughter of my sister), and lastly another Rob (hubby of Steph and father of Lydia) Does that make him my nephew-in-law? LOL



In case Bryony forgets her new name:



Alternate method of transport over grass:





Exchanging of Rings:





The rings:



Signing the register:



Smells good:



Tara:



The start of the Uncle of the bride speech. If you can see clearly enough, you will see some intersting brides and grooms on the wall. LOLOL



Guitar Heroes:



And finally, the most important part of a modern wedding ceremony....
Changing your status on Facebook to 'Married'! Because you aren't married until you do that are you. *grin*



Hope you enjoyed the show!
Hugs,
Lex xxx

13th, lucky for some! :-)

Thursday, January 13, 2011

Today marked my older daughter's 27th Birthday, my best friend's 47th birthday, and five years for me as a non-smoker! It also marked the day I finally got a link to a collection of photos from Bryony and Rob's wedding, some of which I will share tomorrow, once I've gone through them. :-)

It has been a very good day today, even though I felt below par today, and yesterday. Physically I lost a dollop of oomph somewhere, which left me short on my exercises yesterday, and struggling on the Highwoods walk this morning. Uphills were hard! Temper was short, which isn't like me when I am out in the countryside, and I was muttering and moaning under my breath about so many things it wasn't funny. Every little thing was irritating the whatsits out of me. I actually had to make myself shut-up! LOL

So, I did my core exercises yesterday, but didn't manage the cardio exercises with Leslie Sansone. Today I edited my exercise plan, to change my strength exercises around. Since before Christmas I haven't been consistent with the lower-upper-core-lower-upper-core-day off week I'd originally enjoyed after doing the 28-day bootcamp. I would do a few days, but the core segments were making me very unenthusiastic about keeping it up, and yesterday's core exercises were the last proverbial straw!

Instead, I've switched to doing a minimum of 1/2 an hour full body exercises three days a week - Tue, Thur and Sat, which are the three days a week I am least likely to go shopping, making it easier to fit the time in after breakfast. I'm using the exercise generator, and working through the options, doing the best I can with the exercises it gives me, only swapping out an exercise from the set if I simply cannot do it at all.

Today I got to do:
One lower - Skater Squats, which were new to me
Two core - Hip Flexor and Dumbbell Side Bends
Two upper exercises - Boxer with weights (my choice to add the weights having done it in the bootcamp) and Wall Push Ups.
Plus a decent selection of full body stretches.

I have a slight twinge in the left side of my waist from yesterday,so took the core options easy. I know you aren't supposed to work the same part of your bod two days in a row, and I guess this is why. :-) I'm hoping that by hiding the core exercises in the group I won't notice them so much. *grin*

I made a Chilli Con Carne this evening. I had very little cash to play with at Waitrose, so I bought one 400g tin of Mixed Bean Salad in Water, one 400g tin plum tomatoes, an onion, a courgette, three mushrooms and an orange pepper. The plan was to make a beany ratatouille, but alas, I couldn't afford the aubergine to complete the recipe. So, I came home figuring I'd make a beany bolognese instead, but then I remembered I had a pkt of Colmans Chilli Con Carne mix in the cupboard. I checked the ingredients list on the packet, and realised I could make a veggie one using the bean salad mix instead of the usual kidney beans, so that's what I did, and it was utterly scrumptious! Right on the upper end of my heat tolerance, it was a very tasty dinner, and I have enough sauce left for two more substantial platefuls. So the leftovers are portioned out and in the freezer now, to stop me munching any more of it tonight. :-)

I did look at the dried mixed bean mix in Waitrose, and it would save money in the long run, but there are two beans I have little love for - red kidney beans and butter beans - and both are in the dried mix, and neither are in the tin.
The tin mix has pinto beans, blackeye beans, chick peas, haricot beans, lima beans, borlotti beans, great northern beans, flageolet beans and cannellini beans. 80 grams, which is a little less than a third of the actual beans once drained equals one of my 5-a-day, and 7 grams of protein. Nice! :-) Total cost per serving just over £1. That is a bargain! :-) Next time I'll add carrot and green beans to the chilli for more veg content. Yum! :-) Might even do a meaty version.

So, I am just about falling asleep here, so I need to get to bed.
Take care my friends,
Stay safe and warm (or cool if preferred) :-)
Hugs,
Lex xxx

    It seems, judging from your second photo, Ned had really learned a lot during his post-modernist art classes before coming to live with me. And here I was thinking he was just Destructo-Dog disguised as a short haired Border Collie! Thank you so much for clearing that up! I can now learn to appreciate his masterpieces (previously thought of as wanton destruction of all things valued by me) for what they truly are - incredible doggy art masterpieces! Can he ever forgive me?

Congratulations on 5 years as a non-smoker. If you can do that, there is nothing you can't achieve once you make up your mind to do it.

I love meatless chili too - far better than with meat, I find. Looking forward to seeing those wedding pics too.
