Posting pictures-a vent

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

Ok, I'm going to complain big time in this post. WHY don't people follow simple rules/requests? I have visited several blogs today of people posting "reflections" or Affirmations or whatever they are along with photos from someplace on the web. Did they say where they got those pictures or do you think they got permission to post them? I don't think so. So WHY ARE THEY STILL ALLOWED TO POST THEM? Are they somebody special here? I know for a fact that If I posted a funny picture that I got in my e-mail today I would be chastised for it and told to take it down. I have reported a couple of "copy and paste" bloggers but when I went back to look at their blogs after I got a reply e-mail from SparkPeople, the pictures and the copy and pastes were still there. So WHY make those rules? If you are going to make those rules, then INFORCE THEM FOR EVERYONE!

SO, here is my picture for today

    Two wrongs do not make it right. I say this to myself everytime I want to chew apart my exhusband but it is just going to make things worse. Just do what you do and send it to Spark if they don't take care if it then they will have problems from the owners of those pictures not you. Don't sweat the small stuff it just causes more unnessary stress. Have a nice day.

    Good point! I love that comic too! thanks for venting/sharing! I do have to agree, but on a defensive note - sometimes people just don't even realize that it is wrong or against the rules - but when pointed out - should fix it and follow the rules - I know only because I did something similar once - not a picture but pages in a book - it was so great I wanted to share not realizing that it was wrong to do so. got my slap and adjusted it all and haven't done it again. I just didn't even give it a thought.

    Looks awesome! I am currently working on our at home gym in the spare room, which is much smaller than your guest room. Love it!

    Loved the tour. I don't have a spare room. I use my living room, that is where I have my exercise balls, weights and everything else that I need. I would love an extra room, but that is not in the plans. Thanks again for the tour.

    Impressive! My home gym is not as organized, but we have equipment in two rooms as our extra bedroom is our craft room!

My equipment is in our bedroom, and my husband's is in his home office.

Do have a lot of the same equipment you have!

While waiting for the video blog........

Sunday, March 14, 2010

I made (what I thought was a brief) video blog this afternoon showing our spare bedroom that is 1/2 an exercise room/gym. It has been uploading for 3 hours now. Between SparkPeople acting up lately and everything that is running on our home network, it may take awhile.

Anyhow, I used my new dumbbells the other day and I really like them.

What's up with Spark People lately? No mail for days, then we get mail and it's been sent before and can't get points, then at certain times EACH day, the site is down. Somebody needs to get an upgrade and it isn't me.

Poor kitty had a rough workout here

WE had another sandstorm today and my sinuses/allergies are acting up. My nose is so sore from blowing it, I'm tired of sneezing. I hope this means the temps will drop for a couple days again.
Anyhow, I hope the video uploads so you can see our exercise room.

    Glad you were able to post some stills of your workout room and some of its equipment. I have similar problem with Spark website not working as expected nor the emails working right. Best wishes for continued success along your wellness program.

    Are you having one of those days that it seems like you should just go back to bed. Don't let it get you down, I am also having problems with the Spark People Web site. The same you just spoke of. I am just answering them and taking credit for me that I have attempted to answer them all. Gives me practice is my take on it!!Even the Yanks are having an off day losling 10-5!! We can't have perfect every day right.

I have permission

Saturday, March 13, 2010

I got permission to post the SparkPeople Daily Desk calendar notes. As long as I only post them on SparkPeople.

March 13/14:
Daylight Savings Time begins on Sunday. Springing forward (losing an hour) may disrupt your sleep for up to a few weeks. Try to stick with your sleep routine so you can adapt to the time change more easily.

How can that short time disrupt sleep for weeks? When I go from here to home, I fly across 8 time zones in 20 some hours. When people who can't deal with 1 hour can say that, then they have a reason to complain. Go to bed earlier, sleep 1/2 hour longer.
They don't do the daylight savings time thing here, it always stays the same. So now we will only be 7 hours ahead of Yankee Stadium!

    Haha! And when you factor in the earthquake's having knocked the earth atilt on its axis, God only knows what daylight savings time will do to us this year! emoticon

Hmmmm, I notice there is a new not below this message box about posting articles and pictures. I wonder if certain bloggers will adhere to that message. I know several that don't care if they post this stuff or not.

Today's SparkPeople Daily Desk Calendar note - oh wait, I don't think I can post that anymore. Oh well sorry. Who do I get permission from to post it?

DH bought me a new set of dumbbells yesterday. The kind that you can add your own weight to. I'll get upstairs later to try them out.
