Comment of the day

Tuesday, March 17, 2009

This is today's page from my Spark daily desk calendar:
Happy ST. Patrick's Day! Research shows that moderate drinking can prevent certain diseases, but binge drinking is never a good idea. If you do imbibe, limit it to 1 drink daily for women and 2 drinks daily for men.
I WISH I could have a REAL beer or a REAL margarita or a REAL glass of wine, there is NO alcohol here but DH does make his own beer but it's just not the same.

I did my 2 1/2 mile 53 minute walk this morning and will do my walking video this afternoon.
My internet seems to be back up and normal today.

I've got the Spark~!

Monday, March 16, 2009

My husband's co-worker came back from the US the other day with some things for me. I now have a SparkPeople daily desk calendar, a SparkPeople monthly calendar, a Spark People t-shirt that I can wear here when I walk because I bought it 3 sizes too big and some Spark People "business cards" to hand out. Those were freebies. These are GREAT goodies! Woo Hoo! And since I'm an avid cross stitcher, I got a piece of graph paper and tried to chart the Spark People Logo to stitch, LOL. It would make a GREAT LUGGAGE TAG TOO! Hint hint Spark bosses

My internet is not working right today, IE is so very messed up and won't load 1/2 the pages no matter how often I clean out cookies, cache, history, reboot, dump temp internet files, reboot, log out of everything, reboot etc. Firefox works a tad bit better but not much. I won't be able to log a lot of stuff I want to today.

I did do a 52 minute, 2 3/4 mile walk today and I did the walking video. Woo Hoo!

    If you have Yahoo they are working on the site and a lot of people can't get on the site. So if spark mail is in yahoo you may not be able to get in on it. That maybe why you're having trouble.

    Hi Robin,
Sorry to hear about your internet, it must be very frustrating! emoticon
I love the idea of the luggage tags. Maybe it will catch on.
emoticonwith the walking! You are doing a great job. I am just starting to excercise more now I have lost some weight and mainly concentrate on walking.

No title for today

Sunday, March 15, 2009

I did a 45 minute, 2.4 mile walk this morning, it was 80F at 9:30AM. Getting warmer now.
I also did the 2 mile Leslie Sansone walking video.
Still hovering at 141 which is good! I haven't kept up with the 8 cups of water a day though, I just can't get it down right now.

Not much else happenin' right now to blog about.

Is it June yet?

    Does the water taste bad over there and have you tried lemon juice in it to cut the taste?

Today is my 8 month Spark-Aversary & it's Friday the 13th

Friday, March 13, 2009

YAY! Happy Spark-Aversary to me! Sadly in 8 months I've only lost 20 lbs and not the 25 I should have lost, but I did it with the help of my Spark Family so that is important! I learned to like exercise and eat better, I've read very interesting and informative artices and made some great friends here. I hope to be here for awhile.

It's Friday the 13th too. Friday the 13th is my lucky day, I gave birth to my son on a Friday the 13th at 2:55AM way back in November of 1981.

So it's our "Sunday" here, laundry day, clean up day. I didn't get in any exercise yesterday unless you count the 1/2 belly dance/1/2 hopping dance I did last night to music I just can't sit still to. Today is up and down, in and out day with laundry and clean up day. I put my worthless pedometer on to see how worthless it really is.
I may even stitch today!

    We all have our ups and downs, just stay focused. Remember 1 pound lost is better than one pound gained. emoticon

$12.80 for a package of Oreo cookies!

Thursday, March 12, 2009

Would you pay that price? US$ 9.00 for a box of Saltines, $8.00 for a container of cottage cheese? New arrived items at our grocery store today. Haven't seen Keebler saltine crackers in a couple years or vanilla wafers, Keebler cookies. No thanks, I can do without $13.00 Oreos, they stayed at the store. Then there is the $10.00 a pound imported fresh peaches or the $12 a pound sweet potatoes.

EDITED TO ADD THESE THINGS ARE ALL IMPORTED FROM THE USA TO SAUDI ARABIA WHERE I AM AT RIGHT NOW. THIS IS NOT ANYPLACE IN THE USA!

It's our weekend here so I'll probably do a walk video later. It's 99F at 3:45PM and it was grey, overcast and VERY humid again today.

    um...I can't hardly stand paying $3 for a package of oreos, lol, I think I'd pass too. At those prices I think I'd be going native....at least where the food is concerned.

    Oh My Gosh!
Somewhere deep down, I wish that ALL junk food was that expensive because then I couldn't afford to buy it :)

    Those are HIGH prices. Where are you at? They are outrageous. Who can afford prices like that.....OUCHIE!! on the pocket book. I am so thankful prices haven't gone to those extremes yet here in California.

    I've heard in Iraq that it gets to 127 in the summer and the winter isn't that good either. I can imagine the heat over there. I see why you leave in the summer. I wouldn't pay that for those either. You can always make cookies and some you don't have to bake. My mom does a peanut butter one that she mixes. I'll send you the recipe later. I have to go now.
