    I try not to stay on the computer to long because I am in front of one at work. Complete my Spark and do something else is my daily routine.

That's the irony of SP! It is easy to spend time here when we could be playing outside.

This site is horrible today!(Jan. 29)

Friday, January 29, 2010

Everything is slow, messages don't load, I am not getting my daily sparkmails, message board notifications, team notifications, nothing, but I know if I post a questions I'll get the "oh no! It's NOT The Spark site, it's YOUR internet connection, it's YOUR computer, it's on YOUR end," heaven forbid there is a problem with this spark site, oh no, NEVER!

Today's SparkPeople Daily Desk Calendar note says:
Develop a support system today. Choose people who are encouraging or knowledgeable in ehlpful ways, like swapping healthy recipes, exercising with enthusiasm, or sharing weight loss tips.
Kind of hard to do when the site doesn't work right!

    Same problems here. I was wondering if I hit some kind of turn-off-my-mail button inadvertently. I seem to be getting my mails today (Sunday)

    I was having all the same problems, and sometimes couldn't get a comment site to open! IT's all straight now, I think it was just a site overload!

    Yep, mine has been acting funny too. I haven't been getting the spark people emails either. It usually takes a few days, then they straighten it out.

I know you are just venting when you say "this site is horrible" because we both know this is a wonderful/helpful site that is free to all who are willing to partake of it.

Hang in there girlfriend, it will smooth out.

Hugs, Anna

    Mine was doing yesterday evening and I thought it was my computer, I bought a cheapy due to immediate need and not a lot of extra $. Glad to hear it not just me.
As for reporting problems I to never do that b/c all sites always say it is the users issues not the site.

    hang in there - it can be a problem sometimes - I hear about it often - I think just too many on the site at one time - no real fix for that just patience I guess. take care of you!

    Can't load photos onto blogs or pages
Emoticons erratice
messages coming in 4 hours later than "they" say - nothing wrong with my service provider! Popping up suddenly 25 messages down the list long after everything else has been read
Still waiting (6months later) for feedback on IT problems I reported to SP - worked it out myself and with "friends" assistance

Thinking of snail mail - back when I first came to South Africa it took 2weeks for a letter to get a reply so I never bothered my family with my problems - I'd either be dead, in jail or out the other side of any problem before I got a reply :))

    It's amazing that just, what?, 20 years ago we would have had to use a pen and paper maybe a typewriter to communicate. WOW! We have become dependant on the internet. You are not alone in your frustrations. Thank goodness these problems are not all the time.

    Mine seems to be working fine, so far. Hopefully it will be working for you soon! I think it may be updating the site. Usually when it's running slow, they are doing upgrades or something. :) It always gets back to normal before too long.

Why Friday/Sunday? Here in Saudi Arabia, Friday is like Sunday in the real world, the last day of the weekend and the holy day of the week when noon prayers last for over an hour. Today is my day to catch up on laundry, and is a general lazy day. I will still do my exercises today including bootcamp video.

I did well this past week and the scale stayed at the lower end but sadly on Thursday/Saturday, I just simply didn't feel like cooking so in DH's way home from an airport run he stopped at Pizza Hut and picked up a "new" calzone they have here. I did eat the whole thing. We definatley won't be getting those again though, ewwwww, it was yucky. So, I'm brushing myself off from that sinful eating day and forging ahead with the new week.

    Yup...that's what it's all about girl. We allow ourselves foods to eat we don't normally eat every day and then get right back to it. For me it's the only way to stay true to myself. If I don't have goodies like pizza once in awhile I feel deprived. But that's the beauty of the program....always everything in moderation.

Glad you got some good workout time in! Do a little extra for me too since I can't exercise yet. emoticon

Take a breath

Thursday, January 28, 2010

Take a breath, slow, deep breaths can help; conquer stress and lower blood pressure. With your eyes closed, practice inhaling deeply into the belly and exhaling slowly. Tey this several times throughout the day.
That was the SparkPeople Day at a Glance Calendar note for today


Bootcamp for Tuesday Jan. 26

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

Today's workout is my favorite, the dumbbell workout on the stability ball. You would think that after doing this video almost once a week for a year I would be able to use heavier weights but I'm still on only 3KG weights. I can do a 4KG weight once in a while. I also did wall pushups, push ups on the ball at my hips and legs.
I did my Leslie Sanson Walk Away The Pounds 2.5 mile walk for the cardio part.
I might get myself organized and do the bootcamp again next month, how about you? Are you with me?

    I'm going to try the heart healthy challenge for February and the 28 day challenge too - although this boot camp has been a good one and I haven't missed a day yet!
