SparkPeople Penn State University Students and Alumni Team Messageboard This team is for anyone currently attending, planning to attend, or having had the joy of attending the Pennsylvania State University. WE ARE...PENN STATE! SparkPeople Penn State University Students and Alumni Team Messageboard September Chat I see this team is about as active as Nittany Nation is, which is sad. <BR> <BR> September challenge: eat as close to "whole foods" as you possibly can: minimally processed foods, good sources of protein, fresh fruits and vegetables, complex carbs, good fats. <BR> <BR> I want to incorporate kale into my salads - any suggestions? Tue, 1 Sep 2015 14:46:50 EST June Chat What new things are you planning on doing this month? A new recipe? A new day trip? A new fitness activity? Come here and share with the rest of the team! Thu, 4 Jun 2015 02:17:10 EST March Madness Hi everyone! <BR> <BR> To help us out of the winter doldrums, let's challenge ourselves to do an additional 10 minutes of fitness every day during the month of March. It can be any kind of fitness, your choice, just an additional 10 minutes of it! <BR> <BR> I did 10 more minutes of ST today!! Sun, 1 Mar 2015 16:40:49 EST ABC's of Penn State Lauren started it with A. <BR> <BR> B - Business College Sun, 12 Oct 2014 18:17:32 EST Ireland game Anyone going to the Ireland game next week to see PSU and UCF play? I am, and am so excited, but this threat of an Icelandic volcano eruption is dampening my spirits a bit! Looks to be a day-to-day thing, but I hope it holds off a little longer! Would love to hear if any others are going. Thu, 21 Aug 2014 10:09:21 EST This is an easy one for me I have friends that live near the Ohio border and root for the Buckeyes. I have always looked forward to those days and just the joy of seeing them beat makes my day. PSU will be back on top again and the Buckeyes will be crushed. They will soon be seen at the Black Eyes Mon, 2 Jun 2014 19:19:16 EST Sorry I've Been Gone Hello team- sorry I've been gone so long...I got preggo after my wedding, and now am staying at home with my little bundle of joy. Thankfully I get to stay home with her until October...then it's back to work on the weekends, all day...*cry*. Hope everyone's been doing well! Sat, 17 Aug 2013 20:56:20 EST Penn State Pain So, in light of recent events.... <BR> has anyone received any backlash from what has been going on with Dear Old State? I feel almost sad to say I'm a graduate, and I don't want to have to feel that way- but people always say how sorry they are about it and it makes me feel a bit pitiful. Anyone else experiencing this? Wed, 25 Jul 2012 00:02:59 EST New Member Hello everyone! <BR> <BR> My name is Celeste and I am 27 years old. <BR> <BR> I have been a member of SparkPeople probably 3-4 <BR> times. <BR> <BR> I keep trying to do this alone, and I can't do it. <BR> I am tired of trying to do it alone. <BR> <BR> I need help. I admit it. I ask for it. <BR> <BR> I am 5'1 and weigh 196 currently. <BR> <BR> I am enrolled with Penn Foster back on April 6th of this year, for the Vet Tech Program! <BR> <BR> Celeste Tue, 24 Jul 2012 01:18:06 EST Favorite (Healthy!) Place to Eat Out at PSU... I don't know about the rest of you, but every time I make my pilgrimage to State College (about 4 times a year, once per season), I have a really difficult time finding places to eat that aren't going to break the calorie bank. So far the only thing I've found is Mamma Mia's pizza on College Ave- and the only reason they are good is because I know the chef and he'll make me something without using the fryer! I wish there was something easy AND healthy! Fri, 4 May 2012 14:32:01 EST Brand-New Team! This team is BRAND-NEW as of February 3rd, 2012! If you are an interested student or alum, feel free to join! I haven't gotten anything up and running quite yet, but until we get some members on here, this will just have to do as a place to meet fellow Penn Staters. <BR> Good Luck in all you do, everyone! <BR> ~Kat~ Fri, 3 Feb 2012 15:19:24 EST
