Getting together and Sparking

Thursday, October 31, 2013

Some members of the
Sacramento spark team got together and got into the Spark People spirit.
We are planning to start meeting again more frequently.
I think next time may be another of the walking meetings we have had at local parks.
But it was one of our members birthday so we celebrated.
Mis_Viv thank you for remembering Snuzsuz's b'day.
Also in attendance was Getdone looking smashing.

We are really using the site to change our lives.

PS I am the shorty in the middle. Tee hee.

Everything old is new again.

Friday, October 25, 2013

I found a Spark menu choice board that I used when I started five years ago.
I am going to start choosing my food from that for a while.
I do not know how I found it but I have it on my bookmarks.
Less guessing and easier to find.
Don't you just love the new spark start page?!?!?
It is such a kick. I will be able to lavish my spark friends with Goodies.
I am so glad the staff is keeping spark people fresh.

    Where is the extra bonus points? I will have to check out the new start page a little better:)

    So glad you found something that you can use that you have had success in before. Kind of like finding a favorite pair of jeans, smaller size of course, that now fits!

I also like the changes here. And that is saying something coming from me.

    Spark is GREAT.
I wish they'd been around when I was younger and it was easier to lose weight! emoticon

    I like the extra bonus points, but I don't always adjust easily to change.

Food plan is elusive

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

I have been a failure at the food plan.
I have been eating the way I eat for so long, it is difficult to change
I am eliminating the things I should not eat.
I have a way to measure and weigh my food.... something I do.
I post my food, even if I cheat.
But trying to eat the things on the monthly food plan just takes more than I am able to deal with.
Sometimes the items on the menu are more expensive than other choices just as nutritious and on sale or on special. ( though I am resisting the three packages of keebler for the price of two.
) I seldom go to the middle of the store. Shop the fresh vegetable and fruit department but not so much they spoil before I eat them. And I am eating breakfast, which I really have to force myself to do. But I do not always want to eat what is up for that day. Or I do not have all the ingredients cuz hubby ate what ever I need two days before. I mean it is his house too.
So I am just going to try the old pick your food system that was in place when I first got into Spark. I am mentally ready to be the really attractive woman that I have kept hidden all these years... I won't even wear makeup.
Does anyone else find the, "OMG you look so good"! intimidating?

    I don't use the food plans...I try to eat in a balanced manner with plenty of fruits and veggies.
I haven't worn make-up for years - my first husband didn't care that much for it, and I'm grateful that my fiance doesn't either.
I DO color my hair though.

    I truly don't care if other's think I look good, thin, young, etc. As to your food plan, pick what best suits you and tweak it for healthier.

    Yes I did at first but since I'm closer to my goal I'm ready and on the days I feel good I put on makeup
As for meal planning that's getting better but still hard!
Just keep trying then hubby will replace your food because he will like that hot mama!

Wish I could take a picture...

Thursday, October 17, 2013

I still do not know how to take a picture with my I phone and transfer it to this site.
I am going to talk to my friend who will know how to do it.
then I can take a picture of the headboard my son found which matches the 1944 dressers my mother and dad had when they got married. We have the original headboard but it fit a double bed and we have a king. I could never find one I liked. Well he is the wood working king and it looks so nice when I enter my bedroom. emoticon

I am having some seasonal allergies and am not sleeping well, so I need to take the time to go to bed earlier. But then when hubby comes to bed he brings the cats and puts on the light and reads and this breaks my sleep. I just will not be driven from my bed so I go to bed earlier but I wake up at the same time. My cats want their attention.
So I am just going to have to find another way to get my sleep. But sleeping for more than a half hour in the daytime just is not good because then I am not sleepy at night.
Any suggestions? And no, hubby will not change. We have been married mucho years and I have changed what I can. Like he washes his own clothes and cleans off the sink in WC.
But in this he is intractable he puts on the light, reads in bed for a while then drops off.
Just enough time to wake me up.

    Can you give him one of those little clip on reading lights so he doesn't have to blast your eyeballs? Or - how about getting those eye-covers for yourself so you don't notice the light? (Movement is another thing)
It takes me some time to pick up on technology. I only have a basic cell phone. But I know how to download pix from my digital camera...at least that's something. But one doesn't always have a camera with them - I hope you learn to do it from your phone! Then you can share with us!

Found my tracker

Thursday, October 10, 2013

I was searching all weekend for the tracker I misplaced and sourt of gave up.
I just sort of let it go.
WELL I get my car washed and vaccuumed about every week or so and I was past due so I took it to the car wash and they found it while vacuuming the back seat. I do not know how it got there .
So I took the time yesterday to do a ten minute" work out " by walking back and forth while I was waiting for an appointment. I ended up walking over 20 and I did a routine my water aerobics instructor taught us. My brain could not wrap around it but it goes.
Right leg knee up, left leg kick forward then right leg kick right,
left leg knee up, right leg kick forward then left leg kick left.
And I am still slow, I have to concentrate, but I can do it on land.
Next water aerobics it should be easier to do the side kicks in the water. emoticon emoticon

    Glad you found your tracker!
Every now and then we do a cleaning project that goes beyond the daily stuff, and it's amazing the things we find. "So THAT'S where this was!"
