It's Fair day again

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

DH wants to go to the small local fair we have in the area so I guess we're going in the drizzle. It will be good to walk around but I will NOT eat the junk and will take my own water. Also gotta find those bottle lights, small lights stuffed inside booze bottles, they are so neat!

I got extra exercise yesterday by helping DH move boxes and stuff out of the nasty unfinished basement to the garage so we can get the basement finished. Up and down ladder, hoisting boxes overhead, up and down stairs, in and out, plus getting to the gym for 90 minutes, WOO HOO!

A GREAT weekend

Sunday, September 20, 2009

Saturday was our New Hampshire team meet and greet right down the road at our lake. It was very windy and chilly but it was fun. We talked, shared our stories, shared help tips & stories, laughed, ate good food and met our team members. I had a good time. We also got our strength training in by lifting and moving the heavy picnic tables back to where they were. I look forward to doing it again next summer.

For some reason SparkPeople the past couple days will not update my daily points accumulated. Right now I have posted replies to several messges on my teams, added food and it says I only have 1 food item added and 12 points for messages replied to. I give up! I like participating on the message boards so I will post away.

    I am glad everyone had fun at the lake! I too think it should be a yearly thing and hopefully next year I can make one! I haven't noticed any problems yet, but if I notice any at least I know I am not the only one with the problem!

    That is soooooo EXCITING that you had a MEET & GREET!! Sounds like you PEEPS had a really GOOD TIME!! Those can be really fun when PEEPS show up, LOL, not like the FRESNO TEAM, but I am working on getting them off their "butts" and get them motivated into doing something.

Hugs, Anna

    I know sometimes the site doesn't work like it should, however I'm back every day as well. this place is like my blood and as corney as it sounds, I need it and everyone here. . .you are always so positive and strong Robin and for that I say thank you - those were heavy tables that is for sure. . .but the end result was amazing - there is nothing that can't be done with a little team work. . .it was good. and to think the wind even died down so we could get it done. . .lol

thanks again for finding the perfect spot - it really was so beautiful.

    I have been having the same problem with points the past couple of days. It's been frustrating, but like you, I keep posting anyway. It sounds like you had a great time yesterday. We were going to have a fall meeting, but it didn't work out. Hopefully, next summer we'll meet.

AAAhhhhhhhh!!!!

I went back to the gym last night after a week off for my family visit.
I had a great workout, stationary bike, treadmill, gym machines and dumbbell workout.
My DH also bought me one of those plastic balancing discs. I don't know where SparkPeople gets the balance board, it's NOT a board, it's a round plastic disc. Hopefully I'll get the hang of it soon, it looks easy.

Hard to believe that in 30 days I will be getting on a plane and heading back to hell, I'm not really looking forward to it, but I guess it's better than trying to keep up 2 households and not having money left over after the bills.

    I imagine that is expensive. I'll be sorry to see you go. You've been such a support to me this past couple of months. I am getting that netbook. It fits in my purse and is 2 lbs. I feel like I'm going to miss you but know that I will always be in touch. Behave yourself like your cat if you have one.

It's all quiet now

Sunday, September 13, 2009

My family has gone back to NY and my DD has gone back home so it's just DH and myself again.
It was a busy week but a lot of fun. Eating healthy kind of went out the window but I tried. We did a lot of walking in and out of shops and here and there. So now it's back to the gym this week.
Today we went down to the beach for a Seafood festival, it was packed! All up and down the main road there were tents and stalls with seafood, drinks, stuff for sale, just like a fair. I only had fried shrimp since I can't eat lobster or clams.

I got my car back from the body shop and it looks as good as new. Let's hope I don't have another stupid dumb accident.

    Sounds like you had a wonderful time with the family. I'm sure the place must seem really quiet now. I find it's great to visit with family but always good to back on my regular eating and workout schedule :)

Hope you have a great week!

    Good to hear you had a good time with your family. I always say it is nice to have them visit but it is nicer when they go home. You get to set in your ways.
love Syl

Getting ready for family visit.

Saturday, September 05, 2009

This weekend and this coming week are busy. My parents, sister and niece are coming to visit for a week! It's a fun week when we go shopping, browsing, out to eat, take side trips and have a good time with my whole family.
My mother's birthday is Sunday when they get here so I have a cake and flowers. Friday is their 63rd wedding anniversary so we're going out to a place they've been wanting to go for several years.
I'm going to have a house full and of course I will not be allowed to go to the gym while they are here because that is "un necessary" according to my mother. They are coming to visit me so I should stay home and be with them.

Today DH, DD and I are going to the fair to see the demolition derby tonight so that means fair food for dinner. I can handle it and make the best choices I can and YES I WILL BE COUNTING ALL THE WALKING AROUND I DO.

So if you don't see me around for a few days, I'm busy playing tour guide.
