I hope everyone is safe after yesterday's storm! Shoveling out of this mess is going to take me a couple of days.

Welcome back, LACYJO04! It's good to stay active on this site. I've found it keeps me motivated to keep my weight headed in the right direction. I've slipped up a bit because I've had some mobility issues, so I have to lose weight I've regained. We are all in this together!

Hey all...I'm not new, I just haven't been here in a while...as in, over a year. I just weighed myself for the first time in a LONG time the other day and was shocked at the result, so I am back on SP to get back into good habits. Any and all advice you can throw my way is appreciated...feel free to hit me up via PM if you would rather!

Until then, I'm gonna get this figured out!

I led a team of 4 to cook a large dinner last night. It was a rousing success! We made penne pasta with butternut squash and sage, fresh asparagus with lemon butter, and apple oatmeal crisp. I wasn't sure we were going to get everything finished on time, but we were spot on. We dished out 100 servings. Needless to say, I slept very well last night!

Yesterday over 42.5K individuals gifts totaling over $8.1 million were made to MN nonprofits during Give to the Max Day. This doesn't count matches and bonuses. It was a wonderful statewide day of support of our many nonprofits. This is such a generous state!

Weekend went well, didn't seem to notice the difference in the extra hour of sleep, but everything was good. I'll be working out in full effect at the YMCA this week and I'm trying to convince my boyfriend to join with me. We'll see how that goes!

It has become a bit discouraging that I burn more calories at work than I do when I walk around Lake Calhoun, but I still did my walk this morning. If anyone know s why that is or have the answer please let me know. I may have to kick it up a notch as far as my walk is concerned.

Today it's all about burning calories. I noticed that I burn more calories at work than I do walking around lake calhoun. I do find that kind of weird but it's okay. By the time I'm done at work I done burned 628 calories, and that includes my walk as well.

I enjoyed the movie Conviction and this weekend it's just me and my son. Nothing special planned except a birthday party that we're attending. I'm just going to relax and read a good book this weekend!

Today I'm just going to some house cleaning. It'll be light because I don't have much to clean up and after that I'll watch some movies like I did yesterday. I'm relaxing this weekend especially since I don't have any kids, yay!!!

@ DIJOHNSON2010, It's so hard though, trying to be careful of what I buy to cook at home. I have to read every label and make sure there's nothing that's in there to set my son's allergies off. But you can give up pop though. In the last year I've had 3 cans of pop, which is good. In the past three weeks I've only had two pieces of chocolate. You can do it, just stay positive and stay focused, you'll do it.

I couldn't imagine giving up all the foods I love. Especially meats. I don't eat a lot of meat or at least not as much as I would like. I do however try very hard to give up, pop which is hard, but since my body doesn't need pop. But I crave meat and I know there are other foods out there that has what meat has for the nutritional value, but I just can't do without a steak or other meats. However those who can give it up for whatever reason, I give kudos too.

Can you imagine giving up dairy emoticon , tree nuts, peanut butter, berries emoticon , shellfish emoticon emoticon , watermelon emoticon , cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple emoticon , soy, soybean, wheat, honey, cinnamon, caramel, chocolate, pork, garlic, bananas emoticon , etc?
I have, my son is allergic to everything that I just mentioned and more. I was recently diagnosed with a dairy allergy myself. Since it's going on a year that I gave up soda, I guess I can add on to the list. It's been so hard, but I managed to have one piece of chocolate/candy in the last two weeks. I'm getting better with the food tracker and logging my fitness minutes.
It has taken me a long time for me to get to this point and I'm proud of myself. emoticon

I stocked up on fresh foods at the Dollar days sale at my local County Market. ( Kicking myself for not buying the $1.50lb pork sirloin.. was scared off by the big, blobby bag!) Mental note: need to learn to cook better! I'm considering taking one of those quickie classes offered through Lund's/Byerly's!! order.lundsandbyerlys.com/category.a

I cleaned out my fridge and restocked it with vegan friendly foods. Now I have lots of fresh veggies, fruit, Ezekiel bread, coconut milk, soygurt, and all kinds of good things to choose from. I picked up a couple of kinds of dal at Cub to add to my legume/bean selection. Tomorrow I am going to put a curried lentil stew in the crockpot when I get up. The hardest meal to change will be breakfast because I love to eat eggs a couple of times a week. I found a recipe for tofu scramble and will try that one morning.

I've always admired vegans for their dedication and their self-discipline. I'm such a carnivore, though, that I can't even imagine going for more than a couple of days without meat. Eggs too, I just love them.

I am not a true vegetarian, but I don't eat a lot of meat. I've decided to try going vegan for a while, so I am going to try to do the 21 Day Kickstart starting Monday. Here's a link to the program if you're interested in learning about it www.21daykickstart.org/ There are lots of great recipes and resources on this site.

I'm looking for an exec asst position right now. I am sending off some resumes this weekend for positions that have been posted recently. There's a lot of competition. Some folks apply for everything even if they're not qualified. I'm glad I'm not in HR!

I'm going to the St Croix Valley Kennel Club cluster show at the Washington County Fairgrounds later today. If you love dogs, the judging continues throughout the weekend. www.scvkc.org/Premiums.php Admission is free. The Lions Club cheeseburgers are wonderful!

Summers are so busy! I am swamped through Labor Day. Hopefully my life will calm down after that. I'm still looking for a job, so that consumes a lot of my time.

Sorry folks,

I can't pull anything together this month for a rally. I've got way too much going on. Maybe next month.

Jackie~ Thanks for getting this going! I am not sure which date would be better for me. Soccer is going on right now so Tuesdays and Thursdays are definitely out. We are also going camping the weekend of the 13th. Trying to fit everything in before school gets out. What does everyone else think for a date?


This weekend can't come fast enough! I have been wiped and really need to recoup. I won't be though until my run tomorrow morning. My friend and I are going to run a 7 miler. I have been running really good and then this past few weeks have only been running once a week. So going to change that!

What does everyone else have planned?

I've been considering a weekday evening mini spark rally - walk in the park type thing either next week (Aug 10, 11 or 12) or the following week (Aug 16, 17 or 18).

If you are interested, chime in now and offer a location for an evening walk.

The metro area has plenty of parks to choose from. Input from our team members would be great.

Uh-huh. I was noticing that on the Anoka County page today too. Dead in the water, and I don't like it! So, what do we do about it? We clearly know we're the coolest people in the world - so we should dream up something really cool to do to cap off the summer!

Hello Mpls/St.Paul team,

I've been sort of absent from the boards lately - just trying to deal with life's complications. I should be back a bit more regularly now.

Did everyone get out and have a great weekend? What's in store for you in the week ahead?

Jackie

Hey Minnesota Sparkers!!! Hope everyone is doing well.

Thanks Neraus on the well wishes from my race. It ended up being an awesome race and I made the time I was expecting. I blogged about the run if you are interested.

Well my hair turned out pretty good. I had an appointment yesterday for a cut and color which I desperately needed. I LOVE the cut but I am still getting used to the color. My normal color hair is dark brown with some red hints. Well my hair dresser put in some carmel foils and some more red. I like the red, but the carmel makes me look more blond. I have been getting compliments on my hair and it does look nice, just didn't think I was going so light.

Tonight is my girls night out with my sis! I am so excited!!!! We are going out for dinner and drinks and then going to see Eclipse. It should be a fun time and I need this get away.....

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

This weekend for the 4th we are sticking around town. We will be going to a few picnics and having a gathering at our house on the 4th. So I won't be around until Tuesday. I hope everyone enjoys their long weekend and has a fun and safe 4th of July!!!

Hey Teammies!!!

Well my nerves are finally hitting me now. My first 10k race is tomorrow morning. I have a headache, my neck hurts, etc... I think my nerves are getting the best of me. I feel like I hurt myself for not running at all last week but I should be ready for this. I have been running so much. It is just the fact that it is a race and I am a very competitive person. (Especially against myself!) So the nerves are coming in strong.

My sister offered for me to stop over and sit in her hot tub tonight. Considering this invitation....


Other than that, I have been plugging along. Things have been somewhat busy here at work. And of course, it is ALWAYS busy at home. The boys are almost done with their baseball season but then soccer will start up for my daughter. I love keeping my kids active but it really starts to wear on the parents!

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!!

I did not sleep very well last night. Not sure if it was because I had too much I was thinking about before I hit the sack or if it was because it was humid out. But I didn't sleep barely at all. So today I am super tired and can't wait for the day to end just so I can get some Zzzzz's. Hopefully tonight will be a better night in the sleep department.


Max~ Hope you make it back to MN safe and sound. Enjoy the extra day you received by the delayed flight!

How is everyone else doing? This thread has been very quiet lately. Stop in and chat!

Until tomorrow..... emoticon

Elaine, sounds like you had a great vacation. Congrats to Jacob for coming in 1st place and Andrew for 4th. You should join a softball league - I bet you would really enjoy it.

Well I should be back home in Mpls/St. Paul tonight but my Delta flight out of the Norfolk airport was cancelled. No other flights to MN today so have to wait until tomorrow. Talk about a pain in the behind. Otherwise it was a nice trip out in Virginia visiting with family.

Hope you all are having a good week.

Max
