My Sparkfriends ROCK!


Tuesday, November 24, 2009

I just wanted to drop a quick note of thanks to all you who left encouraging words & great ideas on my previous blog. I really appreciate all of the support. I'd write you each individually except this week I am not sure which end is up between working, cooking, cleaning and general nuttiness.

My dinner guests will be here Thursday at noon & won't be leaving till sometime on Saturday - so I won't be able to send them home with leftovers. However I feel much better about the whole situation. I'm going to make Thursday my "free" day. Wednesday, Friday & Saturday I will stick to my calorie allotment.

I have also decided that a BIG walk after dinner will be a great idea provided the weather is good. I am certain that my sisters, niece & nephew will join me on a walk after dinner. And - as an added bonus I purchased Wii My Fitness Coach. I've been wanting a new fitness game and finally decided on this one. Saturday when the family leaves I'll be burning some calories on my shiny new game.

It's good to have a plan.

Thank you again my dear Sparkfriends. You know - even though we all live miles away from each other I feel so honored and blessed to have crossed paths with you all. This year has been really incredible for me and each one of you has helped to encourage me to keep on keeping on. And that means the world to me. You are the bestest!

Never, ever, ever, EVER give up!

    Have a great holiday. You deserve it. Know that the blessing is on us to have crossed paths with you. I'm doing the stairs tomorrow and taking your spirit with me.

    Gracias amiga! You are a great asset to Spark People. I love the idea of a walk after Turkey dinner. I believe I will be doing the same. Keep going...you are doing great!

    Sounds like a good plan!!! Another option - getting everyone in on the Wii action (bowling, tennis, etc.) would be an active, fun way to engage after dinner too (maybe after your walk!) :)

I really need to find a way to get in some exercise or some activity on Thanksgiving!

Enjoy the day!

    Wow! Well, work's been so crazy that I missed the original thread, but it looks like everybody had great ideas for you... I just want to add that I know you can handle this, so just relax a bit and enjoy your Thanksgiving!

As for me, I'm burning up so much energy trying to get my house straightened out before *both* my mother and my mother-in-law arrive ( emoticon ) that I might have some calories to spare by the weekend!

Happy Thanksgiving!
