Just a quick note. Hadn't realized it had been so long, time flies so fast. Your moving and probably won't be on for a few days now.

We finished INSANITY and now are doing a P90X/INSANITY hybrid. We borrowed the P90X dvd's from someone. I really like them. I like weight training, not so much of a girly girl. I like to have muscle.

Hope everything goes well with your move and drive safe. I'll write a longer post next time.

Well I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I went over to a friends house Sunday and then my parents came down Sunday and we went to the coast on Monday! It was alot of fun....but I got sunburned...lol....surprise! Caught a huge crab that was trying to get my mom....heh...she was amazed I picked it up...lol....then a bird pooped on my head....so gross! then on the way back someone hit a turkey and we turned around and got it out of the road and cut it's wings off to make fans for our regaila at Pow Wow....kinda hillbilly and really gross....but we figured we saved other animals from going out there and getting hit while trying to eat the bird....so...yeah...still sad and gross and very hill bill....but....oh well...

Anyway, I cant seem to get past 180 so I was talkin to my friend and she said to try the Cabbage Diet....So starting tomorrow I am gonna be on that for 7 days....hopefully get past 180! When I was out buying all the veggies and fruit for the diet the lady at the register said that I was getting alot of veggies and so I told her why and she said I inspired her to try it! So I am glad that I was able to inspire someone else to get healthy! YAY! :)

17 more days till I get to move! 10 more days of school....Joy is excited! and I am excited to move! CANT WAIT!!!

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

The weights are awesome....and while they are expensive...I really think they are worth it....I wish the INSANITY wasn't so spendy....I'd like to try it...heh...but for now my Supreme 90 day is working....I see results.....I think it's gonna take 180 days...not 90...lol...

No, that people who were supposed to look at the house cancelled...then she thought she had someone else interested, but when she did the background check on her, she had lied about a lot of things....so the landlord denied her....so if you know anyone who is looking for a rental please lemme know...heh

We have given our 30 day notice and we have arranged for us to move out on June 15th! We are all very excited! As far as I know the school will let out for summer vacation June 12th....I'm glad the strike is over....it was really intimidating taking Joy to school on Monday....and glad that Michael came down Tuesday so she missed that day....so she could spend it with him...and then Wednesday was closed anyway....I asked her if she wanted to finish the year online or at the school and she decided to spend it at the school....so, I'm glad for that....it'll make the next 28 days go by fast....then we move....WOO HOO!

Scary stuff with your baby....I hope he gets better fast!! Did you call the Y and tell them that he has this? Kinda like when a child has lice....ya wanna let the staff and other parents keep an eye out....so it doesn't spread....anyway, just a thought....

Anyway, with Michael here 2 days, my eating went down the drain....only gained a pound though...and I am right back on track with working out and eating right...so hopefully that pound will melt away....I want to lose 8 pounds in 28 days....so I am 170 next time he sees me....that is my goal anyway....heh...

I hope you all are enjoying the weather! make sure and post pics of your cakes! You are an amazing baker!!!!!

How are those weights working out for you? We've only got just over two weeks left of INSANITY. Then I think we are going to try P90X. My sister in law has it so we are going to borrow it. I know it is more of a weight training program so I might do an INSANITY/P90X hybrid workout. Someone described INSANITY as cardio on steroids, that is such an accurate description.

Did you place get rented? Do you get to move earlier? Have you heard anything new about how long your daughter has to be in school?

Moving is so exciting but such a big job.

Well the next couple of weeks will be crazy. I have a cake for this saturday, one for the 3rd and one for the 8th. We will be out of town memorial day weekend. I have not been to the gym once this month but still doing my workouts at home and do some c25k when I can get up early enough. The baby got a terrible looking rash, dr said it was molluscum contagiosum. Now when the word contagious is in the name, it must be bad. It's apart of the pox family and can apparently stick around for two years. That's just crazy. He, however, seems to be healing quickly. All bumps have scabbed over except one. I'm hoping it will go away fast, otherwise I can't leave him at the gym daycare. Although I think that is where he got it from so do I want him going there?????

I must stop procrastinating with my cake and just go do it. I'm so behind with it.

Keep breathing. Keep sweating.

Well all....I finally talked myself into getting the 10 pound weights....it's amazing what a 2 pound difference can do!

We got the place in Gresham....and our landlord here in Eagle Point is showing our house today at 4....so if we can get it rented....she asked if we could be out by June 15th!! WOO HOO!!! It'll save us 1400 bucks to break the lease! Though with the schools on strike, I am not sure if they will have school extended....cuz if they do, there is nothing I can do to stay here...hopefully the new school will be able to work something out to make sure she moves onto 4th grade....

Anyway, exciting stuff goin on! Plus the weather has been wonderful!!! I hope you all have a wonderful Friday!

Take Care! emoticon

Awesome that you are able to get to the Y!!! I'm sure you will find time and make it there as often as possible!! emoticon

Yeah, I want 10 pounders, but I cant bring myself to pay 40 bucks for 2...keeping an eye on Craigslist and Amazon for a better deal though....my 8 pounders are still challenging for about 50% of the work out....so it's still ok....

We may have found a place up in Gresham! DH will know if we are approved in about a week....and then we will be moving in June 29th....so a little more than 8 weeks! I am excited to finally have a DATE when I will get to see him again!!
emoticon

The place is a little smaller than here...and only 2 bedroom....but it'll work...we are having to down size though....so if you know anyone who needs a computer desk or punching bag and stand...lemme know...heh....oh and a washer/dryer....but those I need till June 25th...heh

Anyway, kiddo wants to go out and ride her bike...so I'm gonna get....just thought I'd share the good news about finding a place up in Portland maybe! emoticon

We did get back into the Y. $35/month for the whole family. Now it's finding time to go.

Weights are so expensive. I wanted to buy a 5 pound weight for each 5 pounds that I lost but then I looked at the prices so I don't know if I am going to do that. I was telling DH that I should do that but stick them in a back pack and carry them around. That way I burn more calories.

We will be going to Cali to take my father in law down there. He will be staying there for a day then heading down to Mexico for a couple of weeks. We are staying an extra couple of days for a mini vacation.

I am getting back to my C25K. I really want to do a 5K. Been looking at them throughout Oregon. There is an event in Sun River that I think would be so cool, especially for the kids. And walkers are welcome for the marathon and half marathon, not that I am doing that.

Baby is crying, gotta go find out who pinched him.

Hope all is going well and everyone is able to enjoy the nice weather.

Hello fellow sparkers! :) Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!

Naomi, yeah, I am doing better....I think I am getting a hold of my emotional eating in the evening....so these last few days have been going well with eating....I only missed one day of working out this last week...but have been on track since....so chuggin along....though I am thinking about getting 15-20 pound weights for some of the exercises that are getting too easy with the 8 pounds....I try and use both if it's an isolated movement...so I figure a 15 pound would be awesome...just gotta wait till I have 20 bucks to spend on the weight....heh weights are spendy....gesh!

Anyway...were you able to get into the Y ? How are ya feeling....I hope your cold went away! and CONGRATULATIONS on the weight loss!! WOOP WOOP!!!

I hope you all have a wonderful week!!

Hope things are going a little better for you, Amanda. If the evening is the hardest, maybe that's when you could get out of the house and go for a walk or take your daughter to the park. It's supposed to start getting sunny this weekend and with it staying lighter later, it makes for nice evenings.

I missed two days of my workouts last week due to my cake. Now I have a cold and missed yesterday as well. I have, however, lost a total of 6.25 inches in 3 weeks and a little more than 6 pounds. I'm happy with that. I have found lots of inspiratinal quotes and sayings on Pinterest that I would like to print out.

I really want to get back to the C25K. I think I need to just sign up for one and that way I have something definite to work towards. I know I can walk it all, I was doing it at the gym, so finishing wouldn't be a problem. I was looking at the SO Runners website and found Granite Man in Applegate. While I don't think I can accomplish that 5K, they do have a triathlon for kids. A timed and untimed one. My son wants to do it so bad. He's not in great shape so I told him he really has to work hard in order for me to sign him up. I would just do the untimed one for him as it is slightly shorter. He would still need to swim 100yards, the length of a football field. That is still a long ways. But if it motivates him, I am all for it.

Have an apt at the Y today to see if we qualify for financial assistance there so they would lower our monthly payments. We joined and only lasted a couple months at the $65/month and we missed a lot of that because the boys were sick. The boys love the pool so I hope they can help us out.

Gotta go, lots of things to catch up on from yesterday.

Keeping Breathing. Keep Sweating - my favorite quote from ISANITY.

Well, yesterday was a miss....couldn't pull myself together enough to workout...and I had like 3 bowls of cereal after dinner....ugh...I hate being an emotional eater....

Today I did force myself to workout...and run....I'm on week 3 day 2 of the C25K....so chuggin along....so far doing good with eating today...but it's harder for me in the evening....emotionally....as that is when my husband is supposed to be home....and he isn't...so I struggle....and while I didn't cry last night....I did stuff my face...which isn't ok....so that will be my goal this week....to not over eat just because I am adjusting to being alone for a while....heh....

Anyway, thinkin about gettin out in my garden today and plant my veggies...they are getting to big for the cups they are in....so hopefully there wont be any frosty mornings....OH and hubby and I decided to try and grow an avocado seed...and so far both of them are beginning to sprout! Those will be coming with us on the move....since they take years to grow into a tree...heh...but hopefully I can keep them happy and growing!

Hope everyone is doing well! :)

Well hubby left yesterday for Portland...it was a very emotional day....but...today we are all doing a little better....I think it was just a shock to us.

Hopefully I can work really hard while he is away and when he comes back be at 170 and maybe he'll notice that I am smaller...we shall see....

Anywho, I told my daughter we could go do something fun today....and since it's sunny...why not? hehe...so I gotta go jump in the shower and get ready...

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

We moved last September out to EP....she has been attending LBE this year....and MAN DO WE MISS MVE!!! Such a better school!

We want to keep her at this school since there are only 9 weeks left until school is out for summer....and then we are looking to move up to Portland late June early July. So it'll be a few months until we get to see DH again....as we have to save save save to buy the lease out here (unless we find someone to move in here when we move out...which is very unlikely) and have deposits and rent at the new place....plus the money for a uhaul and gas...so more than likely he wont be coming down again until we are moving....

As for my veggies....they are vine plants....pumpkins, squash and such....so it'll be really hard to move them cuz they will be quite large by then...and hopefully already producing veggies that are getting larger....so, I figure maybe someone who moves in here will like all the veggies....who doesn't like pumpkins right? hehe....

Anywho....Since we only have two days left with my hubby he is taking us out for a fun day today...hehe...it's a surprise where we are going...but he is giving me the...hurry up....look....so I gotta get!

You shouldn't take yourself off of team leader until you are closer to moving. Do you know how long you will have to wait to move or is it just until your daughter finishes school? You live in EP now? Did she change to the EP school or is she still in MV?

Too bad about your not being able to reap the produce of your veggies. Maybe you could carefully replant them in pots while they are still little so that you can take them with you. My mom does all of her gardening out of pots now.

Will your DH be able to come down and visit regularly while you are still here?

Finished week2 of INSANITY yesterday and today is a rest day. Tomorrow is the fit test to compare to when we first started. I know I've improved. That has to be good enough for me because I still don't have much weight or inch loss.

Super busy this week. Have a huge cake to do for a wedding. Feeds 300 people plus a side cake that is sugar free. Having to make all the flowers for it. I'll try to be on more regularly.

Well, today is my hubbys last day at his old job....then he has one week here with us at home...then he leaves for Portland to start his new job....while we are stuck down here...waiting to move....sigh....it's scary...I have never lived on my own before...I have always had someone living with me....and while I will still have my daughter....it isnt the same as having adult company....this will be a tough trial for sure!

On a good note...got some gardening done...and more of my seedlings are sprouting! Though with us moving in a few months...I'm not sure why I started my seeds....I'll never get to see them produce my veggies....guess it's just what makes me happy....I finally have a green thumb and I like to use it....heh

Anyway, I decided to remove myself as team leader....since I will be moving outta Southern Oregon...but I'll keep posting here just to keep the thread goin...heh...

Have a very Hoppy Easter everyone! emoticon emoticon

Hey Naomi, welcome back!

Wow the insanity workout I hear is tough stuff! I am doing the cheap version of those kinda workouts...and while I haven't lost weight....I do see a big difference in my muscles....so I guess I am replacing fat with muscle....but at least I am seeing results finally!

My parents got me a treadmill for my birthday...so I got to start the 5K training today....WOOT WOOT! I'm really excited about that! emoticon

My husband got a job up in Portland...so he will only be with me 2 more weeks and then he is going up there....I am stuck down here until we have the money to move up there with him...and we want our daughter to be in one school....not change schools so close to Summer vaca....sigh....but it is going to be hard without him here....as I still am not driving....but the plus side is living in Eagle Point...I'm right down the way from wal-mart and at least I can get everything we will need there....plus lots of walking back and forth...heh....

Anyway, glad to see you are back to it Naomi! WOOT WOOT!

Take care everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Well my sparkpage says its been 462 since I've been on. Really? Has it been that long? Ummm, when I look in the mirror I can confirm that.
But I am back.......again.
This time I have help, my husband. We are doing INSANITY together. Well, so are the boys. We just got the package yesterday. You should see the baby trying to doing the exercises. So you could say we are a family of 6 INSANE for INSANITY. I've been laughing at my 12 year old and my husband just doing the fit test. My husband literally looked as if he were going to pass out. No more laughing, today it's my turn.

Amanda ~ you are so good, posting regularly checking on everyone.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone else.

Well still no weight loss for the week...ugh...not sure what I'm doing wrong here...but I'll keep chuggin along...

Got a job being a caregiver out here in Eagle Point...not sure when I start...but kinda excited to get back to working...

Getting a BIG tax return this year so we will FINALLY be able to file bankruptcy and I'll be able to get my license back! So we are excited about that...though we'll have to buy a second car...not sure if we should pay off the Honda first and then buy a new one...or save up and buy a cheap car right out...hmmm...but I am excited that I will finally be free to drive again...it's been a LONG 5 years!

Got to hike up table rock today! Did it in 30 min!!! Last time it took my hubby and I 2 hours! ( I went with a friend today...who is in shape...heh) I only had to stop once...so I was glad about that...with that kinda endurance I'm thinking I need to get back to the 5K training which I thought I wouldn't be able to handle till I was down to 180 again...but after today...I think I will do that tomorrow...we'll see...

So some good news this week...despite the non weight loss...guess ya gotta take the good with the bad...

anyway, Hope you all have a wonderful week! Take care! :)

Well, not a pound lost this week...ugh! My husband has lost 9 pounds!! and all he did was start the Paleo diet with me...and he's lost 9 pounds in a week! Doesn't seem fair that I work out and eat less than he does (he still eats a lot of the new diet) and yet HE is the one losing weight...

Oi! Anyway, I hope all you guys are doing well! I hope you have a great week!

Well welcome Bekki! I know what ya mean about having kiddos and trouble with eating! My daughter is 8 and it seems like it's been 8 years of down hill with my eating...My husband and I have started the Paleo Diet and he has already lost 6 pounds in a week!!!!!!! I have only lost two...but, I am not AS overweight as he is...plus I know men lose weight easier than women...heh...(the frustrating part is that I work out...he doesn't! grrr)

We are a quiet bunch, but those who are here are really nice! :) Ran a 5K with Parnili and Kclark over a year ago...it was purdy cool to meet people who are trying to lose weight and be healthy like me! :)

I hope this site helps you accomplish your goals!

I'm 34 and I also recently found out that I have high LDL cholesterol. It's been so hard for me since having my son almost 2 years ago eating-wise....I've had such a bad craving for junk food ever since that time.

I thought I'd give this new website and community a shot and try to connect with locals on here to keep my motivation going.

Well Happy Monday everyone!

Tried that Eggplant Lasagna Saturday, and my husband and I really liked it and we WILL be having it again!! My daughter didn't like it though...heh...kids and veggies....gesh!

Anywho, I'm down 2.5 for the week...so I guess I did something right this week...heh...though I am hoping that the slow weight loss will be better at staying off than the fast weight loss of last time...

I hope you all have a wonderful week!
Take Care!

Wow! That is awesome! I have asked my hubby several times to add more vegetarian foods to our diet and he has always said no...but with my cholesterol being high and the doctor saying I need to eat better he is actually on board with it...

We are trying eggplant lasagna tonight...it doesn't call for any beans...you should try it too! Just do a search in the recipes for Steph2003 eggplant lasagna...

I printed off 7 vegetarian recipes to try...and we went shopping for them last night...almost 200 bucks for one week of food!!!!! We normally spend 200 for 2 weeks of food! Good grief, no wonder I'm a cow...it's cheaper to eat like one!! Hopefully during the summer we can grow our own veggies and not have to spend as much...but good grief healthy food is spendy! I know part of it was gettin spices that we don't have...but a lot of it was the veggies...need to find a cheaper place for veggies!

Anyway, looks like I will be in the weight loss of 1 pound again this week...it's frustrating, but at least it's going down...and hopefully it'll stay off this time!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! emoticon

Amanda great advice for me to focus on eating first. I think I just might try that. :)

I recommended to my dh last night that we should eat more vegetarian meals and - are you ready for this - he AGREED! I couldn't believe it! Sadly, he has been having a gout outbreak for almost a month now and one of the things he is supposed to avoid is beans. Bummer. I want to find some more lentil recipes...

I love the last part about "would you eat that naked in front of a mirror?" Um nope! Guess I need to plant a new mental image for myself when eating.

Have a great weekend everyone and try to say dry. Here's to hoping we don't grow webbed feet!

Yeah, but I have wanted to incorporate more vegetarian food in our diet anyway...so this was a good excuse to make my husband get on board! Muhahaha....hehe It's just a lil scary knowing I might have a heart attack...

Maybe you should just focus on getting your eating back in line and then worry about working out after things at your job slow down...heh...I know I know, it's easier said than done...but just trying to be there for ya lady! :)

Anyway, we tried a black bean burger the other night...and it was actually really GOOD....heh...so far this vegetarian thing aint too bad...I am anxious to try an eggplant...hopefully I will like them and we can grow our own this spring! :) I really like gardening...so making room for more veggies is exciting!!! (No room for fruit trees...but I can try cantaloupe and watermelon again...)

Well hope you all have a wonderful weekend...and remember....would you eat that naked while facing a mirror? lol...something on the Tonight Show...about how a model makes sure and eats the right food...lol...hey, makes me think twice before I eat something I shouldn't...lol...

Bummer on the news from the doctor. That stinks but hey, healthy alternatives can be a benefit to everyone. Even if they don't want them. hehe.

I have been awful with my eating. So awful I am not even going to get close to the scale. Work is keeping my far too busy. Something has to give and unfortunately it's been my diet and exercise. Time to get some consistency in my life.

Weighed in yesterday...well...for the "official weigh in" and I'm down 1.7 pounds for the week...not as much as I would like...but, at least it's down...I suppose...

I'm not sure what the difference is between last time and this time, but I was losing about 1-2 pounds a day last time...and this time it is much slower...ugh! It's frustrating...it's still going down...but I hate that it's slow this time...

Anyway, I hope you all enjoyed the snow here in the valley! Have a great week!

Yeah, it's tempting...heh just not sure I'm ready like I was last time...

Glad the scale is on your side this week...mine is fluctuating a lot...and I'm not sure why...I've been eating good and exercising everyday...but my weigh in isn't till Monday and as long as it goes down for the week, I guess that's alright with me...heh

Anyway, hope you all have a wonderful day! enjoy that COLD sunshine...hehe

If you start now you could definitely be ready for the Pear Blossom - there's still 4 months to train. I'm just sayin... emoticon

The scale cooperated and did me good this morning. Here's to hoping I can keep it up!

Everyday is a struggle...heh...though yesterday seemed to be the failure of the week...hopefully back on the food track today!

Glad you are able to get out there and run with your back keeping up with you!!!

I doubt I will do Pear Blossom this year... I haven't run in over a year now...so not really anywhere near ready...but someday I wanna run Pear Blossom..heh

Anyway, hope you all have a wonderful day!

Weekends are where I struggle. While I didn't go all willy-nilly, I wasn't as "clean" as I could have been over the weekend. I'm giving myself until Wednesday to clean up and weigh in.

I did get 2.5 miles in yesterday and my back is still doing good. I'm so excited!!

Anyone planning to do the Pear Blossom this year?

Awesome!!!

I was down 6.4 yesterday. I think a lot of it was water weight though. But I don't count it "official" because it wasn't weigh in day. I'm weird like that.

DIGHUMOR25...I just ordered the new Zumba Workouts. I do my own cardio and circuit training at the gym, but, the Zumba class is always crowded so I thought on some days I'd rather get my family involved with the DVD's and laugh too!! emoticon emoticon

I donno if I'll zip past this time...the motivation last time was so intense...and now it's a struggle to force myself to do it...not sure what happened to my "spark"
emoticon

But I do refuse to be more than in the 170-180's...so...like it or not...I gotta just chug along and hope for my motivation to come back and maybe reach 160...heh...we'll see...

anyway, I hope your back isn't hurting today...I think once I am back to doing my 50 min Biggest Loser DVD...I will start up running again...then I know I will have the cardio to do it...cuz right now...I surely do not....heh

Have a great weekend everyone! emoticon

Amanda-well, you and I are starting out in the same place. I'm sure you'll zip right past me with weight loss. I know you can do it, you've done so great with it before and you can do great again.

I did get in a run today. My back was talking to me a little bit at first and then it seemed ok. Now sitting here in the chair I'm not so sure it was such a good idea so soon. Guess I'll see when it's time for sleep.

Yeah I would love to take a Zumba class...but I would be scared to be the only "white" girl there...heh

I'm sorry your back is outta whack....I hope you feel better soon! Watching what I eat and not working out is my BIGGEST struggle...so GO YOU for sticking to it!

Finally decided to see the damage I caused over the holidays...5 pounds!! I'm 2 pounds away from being back at 200!!! So, that was a big wake up call to really stick to it again...and stay with it this time!

Anyway, gotta go help the kiddo with homework! Take care everyone~

Another white gurl here! Nope, I can't dance either. I've wanted to take a Zumba class for awhile now but too chicken - afraid I'll make a big ol' spectacle of myself!

Since my back is still not cooperating and exercise is out of the question (putting on my socks is a workout these days) it's all about controlled eating for me. It's taken me a couple days to get back into the groove but I think - no, I know I can do this!
