Was running errands the other day and had my younger kids in the car and popped in a CD. First tract plays - up tempo song. Second tract comes on and starts slow. My youngest daughter (age 4) complains that the happy song is not playing. Only in my car and my family could Flogging Molly's Drunken Lullabies be considered a "happy" song. I had to laugh to myself.

Wed, 31 Oct 2007 12:23:34 EST hey http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x828x9690974 i'm siri, and i'm new to this group, but i've been on the sparks page awhile. i'm actually serious about this now, though. i'm 25, sing, play guitar and bass, and i'm really into art and music in general. i like bands like crimpshrine, jolt, onetime angels, jawbreaker, the bananas, etc. dirty pop punk, mostly. so yeah, i guess that's about it.

Thu, 8 Feb 2007 20:45:05 EST HELP! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x828x4803422 I keep going over my calories at night - not eating junk, necessarily, but lots of high fat/protien stuff (i.e., granola, peanut butter). I will eat my dinner and a snack and be within my calories, then just completely say f--- it and go overboard! <BR> <BR> I had a problem with this when I first started SP but thought I had kicked the habit - apparently not. What to do?!?!

Sun, 28 Jan 2007 16:48:29 EST What is Your Exercise Profile? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x828x4533444 I took the Fitness Personality Profile over at http://sparkpeople.com/myspark/fitness_pro<BR>file.asp just to see what kind of workout works for me. <BR> <BR> I came out a 6 in Social Scene Exerciser, and a 4 in Independent Thinker. My two highest are almost opposite of each other! Either I'm really well balanced, or I'm completely wacko. Hmm! <BR> <BR> How about all of you?

Mon, 22 Jan 2007 10:33:39 EST ACK ACK ACK! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x828x4482150 I am freaking out b/c I think I may have accidentally bought regular string cheese instead of the "light" variety. I just ate two and thought they tasted different than the ones I'd been eating - not as crumbly or something. <BR> <BR> Yes, I know it's not the end of the world, but it pisses me off. And I won't know for sure until I go home tonight and look at the THREE PACKAGES I bought on sale. DAMN! Fri, 19 Jan 2007 16:40:49 EST Workout Songs/Uplifting Songs http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x828x4368474 So there is a thread on the Fastbreak board about workout songs and uplifting songs, and frankly, I just can't roll with the Bon Jovi and Rascall Flats, right? <BR> <BR> What songs/albums do you listen to listen to when working out or when you need a pick-me-up? <BR> <BR> Right now my CD player is giving me the fitts, I am saving up for an MP3 player to take to the gym, but I have had a good time working out to River City Tanlines, The Donnas newer albums, and The Muffs/The Beards.

My calories are 1200-1500 (a little more on days I work out). <BR> <BR> Please join me if you have a mini-goal for this month! <BR> <BR> (I figure I can maybe stick to this better rather than just saying I want to lose xlbs by 2008.) Mon, 1 Jan 2007 13:12:28 EST Newbie here...r represent! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x828x3879527 I was referred to you ladies by a great girl on Punkrock Domestics (my name on there is Mishe). Since I was always asking about exercise. I've lost 2 dress sizes since I started working out in late September/early October. I've cut my calorie count to half (approx. 1000 or less) and I've started some major cardio/brisk walking 3 - 4 times a week, including some in-home exercising. However, I've learned that my problem spot is my tummy. I can't get rid of it and it driving me nuts. So, I...

I'm just so stoked that there is a Team like this (having always been 'the freak' at previous diets like Weight Watchers) and I want to get to know everyone. <BR> <BR> So, I thought I would start this topic because I don't know about you guys but when I am on a diet my mind can not get out of the food-clouds so I am trying to distract myself with my next favourite subject. I thought if I could get a load of pun...

Underneath my chubby exterior is a cranky fed up food and connivence addict. I do not know if this is just my town or what. I live in a big city north of Dallas with a small town mentality. I think I am the only one to notice the weekend pop-up restaurants . I mean it is bad. The only new businesses we get are restaurants. At least we are making for a healthy job markets for servers, but damn. <BR> <BR> If they are gonna keep us fat then they need to frea...
