This was another one of those days where I made a lot of stupid poor choices (eating ice cream out of the box) and then making better choices (going for a walk, sweeping the floor, etc.).
Plus, in platting the walk to my neighborhood map, I keep forgetting the name I gave the route. When I go to the place where I can click to access my saved maps, it has a left frame with all the names of my various routes - starting with A, B, C, D...going to at least V (because it turned out the walk we walked tonight was #V - what happens when I have more map routes than there are letters in the English alphabet??). Then there's a big gaping hole. I've always thought it would be great to see little thumbnail clips of the walk so I could visualize the walk that I just finished and match it up (because I end up giving them complex names, based on which surrounding streets I walked and in what order. That's complicated!! Maybe I can explain more another day, if anyone really wants to know, but since they are all labeled anonymous or private, hmmm oh well.)...
Anyway so I just suggested that to the SparkTeam and we'll see what happens next time the want to get ambitious and redesign some of the pages!!
My DH is wanting me to shut it down and go upstairs to sleep, perchance with him... ;-)

For awhile now, I've noticed we have an Official Spark Wichita team (does SparkPeople set it up first? how does it get to be "Official"? And I also noticed we have a "Wichita Women" Spark Team.
The Wichita Women team is leaderless, and thus, not a lot of activity going on... I've no idea who started the team, or the history (or herstory, I guess?). Several that I've met are ladies who live just outside the Wichita metro, I think one lives south of town, and I'm north of town. I think I found it by searching for "Wichita", rather than "Official Spark Wichita" or whatever.
In any case... I wrote a note about it inside Spark Wichita and already I've received a few comments that they didn't even know there was a Wichita Women's team.
Do we even need two Spark Teams for Wichita? Do other cities have two or more teams just specifically for their city? Places like NYC I can see maybe they might - like one for Manhattan, one for Queens, one for Long Island, whatever (I don't know all the Burroughs, sorry, I've never lived in NYC.).
I'm guessing someone wanted a "Women Only" team so they could feel comfortable discussing "girly" things without embarrassing any of the guys? Who knows.
Not sure what all a team leader does for these online teams or whether or not I want to take that on...I'm mostly gathering information. So it would be interesting to find out what the history of that team is?
Gotta go figure out what the captioned movie is for this Sunday at the E. 13th Warren - check it later http://tiny.cc/WMOCMovies and hacker alert: this is an "announcement only " Yahoo group, so members can not see other members' email addresses for harvesting...buzz off! I have and will be happy to ban any who are spamming our members. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. (just in case there are any who do that sort of thing around here but I kinda doubt it, so please don't feel like I'm picking on you specifically! heh!!)

Didn't have any real plans today, so nothing much got done. About the only thing was our family getting haircuts from my girlfriend. Son had homework and wouldn't take it seriously that I wasn't going to let him go see the captioned movie today ("Cowboys and Aliens") so he got mad that I wouldn't cave in and take him when he just kept goofing and figuring out all the creative reasons why he just could NOT do his homework. SIGH.
I need some lessons on Tough Love. Back in the day, "Tough Love" was a beating with a belt, but that's not kosher these days.
Gotta get up early and go walk. And I want to start juicing again. My girlfriend is having good results juicing without fasting - she's still eating, but I guess the juicing just helps feed her body the nutrients she's not been getting for so long and she's seeing a lot of benefits. I on the other hand muddle through with a sense of foggy brain...muddled thoughts... tiredness. I just need to be more consistent in exercising!!

I had my time zone fixed at one point some time ago. Just now realized SP was tracking something of mine as if it was already 9-11-2011 ...
Went to Start Page and to the Edit/Account thing under my name and got to the time area. It says:
Set Local Time
Select your local time below to customize SparkPeople.com for your location. This will adjust how you view message board posts, your trackers, SparkPoints, and more.
Default Date and Time: 9/11/2011 12:43:03 AM
My Date and Time: 9/10/2011 11:43:03 PM
New Date and Time:
So I fixed "New Date and Time to have our current time 11:43:03 pm but after I hit the "Save Changes" button, it reverted back to saying that the New Date and Time was 9-11-2011 at 1:43 AM.
WHAT'S THE DEAL!!
I'm tired. Will deal with it later.

I went to bed before 10 pm last night I think it was, and slep well enough until about 2 or 2:30 am. Got up for bathroom and drink of water, but seemed like I was up several more times after then (keeping in mind that the previous week I was only going to bed AT 1:30 or 2 am!!).
Finally woke up again around 5 am and felt sluggish and dull and achey as if I hadn't slept at all. So much for going to bed early...
Went for walk and stars were so bright. And then I remembered that I'd forgotten to go outside and see the auroras (or at least see if there were any this far south. I did get a YouTube link for a video shot overnight in Minnesota...
It's a lower resolution camera, so doesn't have that lush look like you see in some movies. It takes a fairly high resolution high powered camera and lots of $$$ to get those really super gorgeous shots... and places like Kansas there is usually so much atmospheric interference (haze? dust?) that the auroras were never that big and rippling, at least not the 3 or 4 I've seen - colorful, yes, but not like this one.).
But I digress... so I just got to enjoy a nice long walk...came home and ate some cereal and a few hours later was still hungry so ate leftover veggies from dinner last night.
Anyway I feel really tired, so I'm gonna go to sleep soon. Won't get all my possible points but oh well.
