That $@*&%^ ad is back

Sunday, March 01, 2009

I noticed today that on a couple of my Spark pages that damn Vaseline video and ad is back, it locks up my computer to where I have to reboot every single time it pops up on a page. I have reported it twice but apparently Spark people doesn't care.

I may be spending less time om SparkPeople, I really want to do more cross stitching.

I did do a 57 minute walk this morning but I haven't gone to my map site yet to figure out how far it was.

    If you're using Mozilla Firefox, look for an add-on called "Flashblock" - it will prevent flash-based ads from coming up (unless you click on them), and might solve this problem!

One think to note about flashblock: it will "block" flash item on all sites (i.e. videos on youtube) unless you click on the item you want to see...but I like that! It reduces clutter and things blinking "you're a winner!" in my face all the time, and one click lets me see the content I want. It can also make your internet seem faster, because all the extra ads aren't loading!

Hope this helps!

    Perhaps you can come on once a week. Maybe on a day when you have more time. I hate to see you go emoticon

You've gone over your weekly calories burned

Saturday, February 28, 2009

So I go to put in my 2.38 mile, 47 minute walk today and this message is at the bottom of my screen:
"*You've gone over your weekly calories burned goal by a significant amount. Your calories eaten goal will not adjust automatically. If you have increased the amount of exercise you are doing, you should update your fitness settings here to make sure you are consuming enough calories to support the additional activity."
All I can do is laugh because I haven't lost any weight OR inches. Not sure about the muscle though, my calves do feel tighter but that's about all. Not to mention I CAN'T enter some of the food I eat because it is food from here in Saudi that IS NOT in the Spark database nor can I enter it because there is NO NUTRITION information on the packages and even doing google searches NOTHING comes up for these foods ANYWHERE.

    I know I was doing the nutrional data when I started it said to eat about 1,500 to 2,500 calories a day. When I started exercising more it upped my calories to 2,500 to 3,500 because they didn't want me in a starvation mode. If you are exercising a lot then its time to eat more, I know it doesn't make sense, in order not to go in starvation mode

Explination of TAIW

Friday, February 27, 2009

I live in Saudi Arabia, our weekends are Thursday and Friday. TAIW means Thank Allah It's Wednesday, the same thing as Thank God It's Friday in the rest of the world.
I'll be back at my HOME in the USA around June first until mid October.

    It must be interesting to live in that part of the world. I bet you get to see a lot of culture. Do you get to travel a lot?

It's our weekend here but I did manage to get out and walk today even though it was only 32 mintues and 1.67 miles. Then we went grocery shopping. I ran through 3 different stores looking for something specific for a friend but couldn't find it.
I didn't do the boot camp workout today but hopefully I will do it on Friday.

TAIW

Wednesday, February 25, 2009

TAIW = TGIF in this country's language, LOL

I only walked 58 minutes and only did 2 1/2 miles today, but did the day 5 video and some jump rope.
