    Hmm - maybe I can pass off my latest cooking experiment with this excuse. Made everything go bad. Got a good laugh - thanks. emoticon

    Thanks for sharing this article. I was cute to read but I don't think I will be doing this. The thought of my shoes and food in the same freezer kind of turns my stomach. I think I will try the baking soda trick.

Vacation so far

Thursday, June 10, 2010

It is good to be back at the gym! Holly makes the time go so much faster and really helps me stay accountable. It is so much easier and so much more fun to have someone to work out with and ask advice. We vent, share, worry and laugh. I may whine somedays about having to drag myself from my cozy warm couch to the gym but I do feel so much batter after a workout. Thank you Holly!
I really wish some people would use gym etiquette though. There was a man come in and start running on the treadmill next to me. All well and fine until he got to going and sweating and STINKING! OMG did he stink, and the grunting just from the treadmill. I do realize that you need to put some effort into working out but enough grunting and if you know you are going to sweat and stink, please take precautions before hand! I had to stop my exercise and go into another room to get away from the smell.

I did get my Wii the other day but it is still sitting in the boxes, I haven't taken it out and hooked it up. Most days I'm just blah, sitting on the couch with the remote flipping through the tv channels because I CAN and they are all in English and lately it's chilly, damp and rainy.

So that is my week!

    Yes the time does go so much faster with a great buddy! thanks buddy! and I'm so glad I ended up late and didn't have to be there for that! OMG it is terrible sometimes and I'm sure he has no clue at all - perhaps if we spray him with a can of lysol??? lol he would get the hint?? lol see you tonight!

    Robin are there any English shows on TV where you usually live?
I can't imagine our gym having that. We go to the Y and it's marvelous there. People also wipe down the machines. I stopped a man the other day from sitting down on a machine because I hadn't wiped it first. He seemed happy that I was so considerate. Maybe we should send some of our manners up your way. Hope

Surprising Healing Benefits of Spices

Friday, June 04, 2010

I was browsing Yahoo this morning and came across this interesting article and thought I would share it with you.

***NOTE: I DO NOT AGREE WITH NOR DISAGREE WITH THIS ARTICLE, I AM JUST SHARING IT WITH MY SPARK FRIENDS

Chances are you sprinkle cinnamon into your morning oatmeal or add a dash of oregano to pizza without giving the spices much thought. But did you know your favorite flavors can actually do your body good?

    I have heard of some of these. Thanks for the report. Did you know that cayenne will also stop bleeding when you get cut. The brothers that traveled with the James brothers got shot up and survived it even though they were shot 20 or more times. However because they took cayenne pepper in their food and drinks they survived the shots because they didn't bleed to death. I got that from a relative of the James brothers.

great article, but would have been better if it was more inclusive.

    I knew I loved cilantro, but now that I know it acts as a diuretic and can help with that water weight, I REALLY love it!

Thanks for sharing, Robin!

A new bootcamp!

Wednesday, June 02, 2010

I joined another bootcamp team yesterday but I can't start it just yet since my daughter will be here for a couple days and I haven't seen her since October. I'm excited about it thought! You do it at your own pace. It's called Official 28-Day Bootcamp Workout Challenge teams.sparkpeople.com/28DayBootcamp It looks like fun and I can't wait to start it.

Today was the 2nd day to work out with my friend Holly and the time just zoomed by so much faster that it did when she wasn't there the other day. I talked to her and asked how she lost the weight and toned up so now I got the pointers I have to do it too!

I'm waiting for my daughter to get here and I'm so excited!@

Being HOME feels good!

Monday, May 31, 2010

My trip went well, took off a few minutes late but landed at JFK 45 minutes early, got through immigration in no time, waited forever on my luggage but no problems with customs. Got over to the Jet Blue terminal, checked in, then had a Coors Light for breakfast!! Then walked around for a while. Looked for Yankees stuff but there wasn't much there, but I GOT THE SPARK BOOK! I was thrilled. I even started reading it.
My flight left at 12:40 and got to Boston at 1:35, waited on luggage then waited for the Concord Trailways bus at 2:40. The bus had WiFi so I checked e-mail and actually got to do my sparking. I got to hug my son at 4:45PM local time!
I walked quite a bit while I was in the airports, I did stretching.

I spent the night with my son so I didn't get to my house until Friday morning.
I met my friend Holly at the gym on Friday evening and had a GREAT 30 minute workout on the treadmill.

Today I woke up at 5AM in a panic because it smelled like the house and the woods in my backyard were on fire. I had trouble sleeping again. Found out there is a fire in Canada and the wind and air current is blowing the smoke down this way.

I've been enjoying my pork sausage and bailey's Irish Creme for Breakfast, YUM!

    Welcome back! Kudos on having your priorities together - if not successful with Yankee paraphernalia, at least you have...

    Welcome home, Robin -- glad your trip was a good one!

We panicked as well when we smelled the smoke yesterday morning. Very strong! The wind shifted yesterday afternoon but this morning it was back and worse than ever. Amazing that it travels that far!
