Great SP Sacramento rally/meet up last night!

Tuesday, February 01, 2011

With all the cold, wet weather we've been having in Sacramento, a couple of us local Spark peeps decided to have a rally/meet up at the Arden Faire Mall to get in 1+ mile of walking done and then headed over to the food court for some refreshments and to get to know each other and catch up with those that we knew.

We walked in groups of 2 or three and kept a nice healthy pace. It was really great to get out of the house, get some exercise in, encourage one another AND make some new friends.

Keep on walking!

starting to get better, FINALLY!

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

Thank goodness I'm finally starting to feel better! I'm still coughing, but the sinus drainage has at least slowed down. Sheeeeeesh! I can't believe what a big whiner I am when I'm sick. I simply can't get motivated to get out and walk or even do any yoga inside. My hats off to those of you who have been getting your exercise in, even when your sick.

Ok, since I'm feeling better today -but not good enough to go outside in the cold; I've set the goal of going for a walk at the Arden Faire mall at 7am. I JUST NEED TO DO IT!

    You can do it! You will feel so much better if just get out and start moving a little bit, I know it has helped me feel better!
God bless.

    I feel you. I'm trying so hard to get moving but I keep using this miserable cold (the drainage and wiped-out feeling are the worst for me) as an excuse not to...even though I know moving about will actually make it feel better.

sick & trying to hang in there

Thursday, January 13, 2011

Morning all, the illness continues today and has definitely set up household in my sinus area accompanied by a head ache. I'm trying to at least read some Spark blogs today and other material, but I just don't feel like exercising at all. Whine......

    Drink some extra water to help your body fight back and get some rest.

  I love your flowers in the background. They are gorgeous. Did you do that? Remember you have to get better so you can tend to them.

There is nothing worse then a sinus headache and I don't think you are whining. Hang in there.

    Hang in there Mims.. If this is your FIRST go-round with this KRAP this season, you are really lucky. Many have been hit with at least twice. It is MEAN STUFF.
Take Care...

SacSparkles rally/walk meet up Jan 31, 6pm

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

Winter in Sacramento is usually cold & wet and sometimes keeps some of us locals from getting out and walking. This month the SacSparkles team would like to meet-up at the Arden Fair Mall Monday Jan. 31st, at 6PM. Below is announcement we've posted on the SparkSacramento.com site and other local team sites.


Spark Sacramento: Fitness Walk - Even when its cold & wet!

Monday January 31, 6-8pm
Arden Fair Mall, Lower level entrance
Next to Sears adjacent to the parking garage
1689 Arden Way
Sacramento CA 95815

Join Spark People from around the Sacramento area for an informal 1 mile (2 loops) "Walk for Fitness & Life-Even when it's cold & wet" inside the Arden Fair Mall Monday January 31, at 6pm.

Please use the lower level entrance next to Sears adjacent to the parking garage. The SacSparkles team will have a small check in table set up near the "Inside Track Mall Walker" news & info display.

Folks living and working in the Sacramento area know how cold and wet our winters can be. So the Sacramento Sparkles team wanted to instigate an impromptu Spark Rally, or meet up, at the Arden Fair Mall to inspire people to get out and walk at the mall when the weather is cold and wet outside.

After the walk, we'll head up to the food court tables on the second level for refreshments and to hear how everyone is doing with their New Years resolutions and personal fitness goals.

Please send RSVP via "SparkMail" to: MIMULUSBUG, SMASHY1, & JAY75REY if you think you might be able to come, if you would like additional info about this event, or might be willing to help us with set up on the first level or with refreshments/water at the food court. An RSVP will also give us an idea of how many people to prepare for.

We look forward to meeting new Spark Friends!

    Great idea Ladies!! I will be happy to help in any way that I can! Lets see what I can do with this knowledge and maybe
that will help me remember that this game I am playing is NOT getting the weight off--exercise and watching what I eat is necessary
