    10/24/2014 1:15:33 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    I kept telling myself that . . . Whatever this bug is that's kicked my booty for the past week, is no fun whatsoever. There were several times when I... Read more

  • Not the preferred way to lose 4 pounds!

    10/22/2014 1:46:46 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    It's been a long time since I've spent the day sleeping, but that's exactly what I did yesterday. Not sure if I have/had a stomach bug or just the change of the seasons (as my neighbor attributes it to), but it kicked my booty. Thankful to be feeling better this morning, tho I did nap f...

  • Recipe #1 Harvest Squash

    10/22/2014 10:13:00 AM, by FIT4MEIN2013

    I love squash! With holiday eating, though, everything is laden with unwanted calories. This tastes like a million, yet has less than 200! The link is here: recipes.sparkpeople.com/

    Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid. ~Albert Einstein The same goes for each of us . . . if we try to live our life accordin... Read more

    10/15/2014 2:30:17 PM, by ERIN_POSCH

    Plateaus....are often seen as problems. Stuck at a weight we don't want to be at. Working and seeing NO RESULTS. The matter of loosing .4 today and putting on .5 tomorrow. YUCK!!! Instead I will choose this philosophy: ... Read more

  • Working hard

    10/13/2014 10:59:48 PM, by FIT4MEIN2013

    For some reason it is difficult for me to get my steps in lately. I understand Saturday. I was in a conference all day, then had a 3 hour drive home. Rich met me and we had dinner. It was then 8:30pm. Today I got my 23000 steps in, but not until almost 8pm. Tomorrow, I *must* do some walking or... Read more

  • Tea and sympathy...

    10/12/2014 5:59:04 PM, by ERIN_POSCH

    I believe in the power of tea. I have chamomile every night before I go to bed. I drink 2 cups of green tea a day when I'm a work. I rely on peppermint tea to help settle a sour tummy. I have an assortment of blends to choose from on the weekends For myself I generally just brew by the cup.... Read more

    Today was Molly's birthday so we started the day making Dutch Brother rounds to get her free birthday coffee. Then we headed to Denny's for her free breakfast. Have you tried those awesome pumpkin pancakes? ... Read more

  • Friends and Frangipani

    10/7/2014 10:54:40 AM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    I had a great time at the reunion lunch yesterday. It was great to catch up with former co-workers and see what's gone on in their lives these past 25-30 years. Most of us are grandparents now, and we're all moving a bit slower. A couple of the ladies I used to work with I did not recognize at al... Read more

  • Fast and Furious

    10/6/2014 11:13:37 AM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    Another fast and furious weekend. Most of it was spent taking care of business. This week will be another busy one. Today I'm driving back to the city to have lunch with a group of former co-workers from a job I had from 1986 - 1991. Then I might as well take care of some errands while I'm... Read more

  • Oh, my aching body!

    10/4/2014 9:55:37 PM, by FIT4MEIN2013

    Molly and I walked today. 7-1/2 miles to a 'local' restaurant. Each way. It was 88 degrees today and we both ache from head to toe. Molly has some wicked blist... Read more

    10/4/2014 3:21:44 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    Last week I celebrated - and I do mean celebrated - my two year Spark-anniversary! What a difference SparkPeople has made in my life. I absolutely love that SparkPeople does not offer a quick weight loss diet plan . . . but a whole new outlook on life... Read more

  • What I've learned....

    10/4/2014 12:13:34 PM, by ERIN_POSCH

    This was a trying week for me. It was a week of trouble.... I had audit problems at the office and no management to assist. I know how to find information I know about, but how do I supply information on what someone else knows and why they do what they do .... am I wrong to think "take it u... Read more

    9/30/2014 11:56:58 AM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    I watched hubby ride off to work this morning bringing a rude end to a great vacation. Well, maybe not so much a vacation as a much-needed time off, break from work. For the past 9 years, DH has been commuting 2 hours a day to work. Sun, rain, wind, hail, sleet, snow . . . it doesn't matter. ... Read more

  • Ok, then......

    9/28/2014 11:09:22 PM, by FIT4MEIN2013

    Too much to do today. I had Bible study before church service, then a pot luck for Relay for Life, then a breast cancer tea and fashion show. I left the house at 8am and got home at 5pm. And I ate wayyyyyyy too much junk. I stayed at my maintenance goal for calories, but it was lousy quality food. U... Read more

    Do any of you play "Panda Pop"? This game keeps me going on the rebounder/treadmill/elliptical and the pandas are so darn cute. It bothers me every time I lose a level, though, when all the Pandas cry when I don't get every l... Read more
