Good Morning, All!
If you type in "aerobics" on the search space on the Fitness Tracker, it will come up "Aerobics, low impact (including walk away the pounds." This works well for me because on different days I do different amounts of minutes. I have a tape, but there are others on YouTube.

Leslie Sansone 5 mile walk is my DVD .... LOVE IT

I track it under 15" mile walk (Leslie says that in the tape) comes up to 240 calories burned for 60"(I just lost more weight and the numbers changed; love this SP magic) also, I recorded this to my headset and can now move to Leslie without waking up my household

How does it come up on the Aerobics emoticon

Hello, Ginny! I also do Leslie Sansone and it is listed under Aerobics, walking. Not by the mile, but by the minutes. Unless it is advance walking, shouldn't it fit there? When you click on the Fitness Tracker, Aerobic walking should come up. Hope this works for you. emoticon

Good Morning All emoticon

It's sunny but chilly at 11:10 a.m. 39 now was 17 at 7 a.m.

I am glad you are feeling better Mary Alice. I hope you are on the path to recovery.

I have a question for you all.

I just bought the Leslie Sansone 5 mile walk. Does anyone know how many calories you burn while doing the whole 5 miles? I put it in my Spark Fitness but it is not listed so I don't know the calories. Any help appreciated.

Have a great day everyone.

Karen, thanks for sharing that you've lost another pound. That's why we are here!! I love to hear of successes!!! emoticon

I love the dentist! Okay, I don't love going to the dentist, and I really don't love my dentist per se, but I love that we live in a country where if we have teeth problems, there is help close by. I have wonderful teeth, but they are getting old ( emoticon ), and so I'm having more trouble with them. I had a cap put on one tooth this morning ... just so thankful!

I had soup in the crockpot ready for lunch when I got home. Exercised today even though I didn't really want to. Just do it!!

Life is good. emoticon

Hi, the best I can say is I'm in an upright position. I guess my body didn't like yesterday and let me know today. I wore up with a monster of a headache. It is 2:30 and I have gotten out of my PJ's and into a rode. As for food I've had 2 mouthfuls of oatmeal and one of veggie burger.

emoticon on your Olive Garden Choices CALLIEANNE. Load your choices on the nutrition tracker and I'm sure you will find you had less than 500 calories. I love minestroni soup. I didn't know they had a lighter version of their dressing. I will ask for that next time.

Evening, I made it though the day. I was on the register most of the day, only doing service canter when someone needed a brake. I didn't do much in customer service, todays was one of those days when the customers didn't believe what I told them and asked for a manager only to be told the something and to ask for another manager. I would end up just walking away when there where more then 3 managers. Well I'm off tomorrow.

Now if Olive Garden just didn't use meat broth to make their soups.

Hi Barb.....Minnistroni soup only has vegetables and a little bit of pasta. And the base is a tomato broth. I really enjoyed it and my waitress was very helpful in suggesting it because I told her I was watching my calories and wanted to eat lighter. Eating all the salad and only soup was very satisfying...emotionally as well as physically.

emoticon Ginny & Sharon. I did exactly that. I ordered salad with dressing on the side and the waitress also told me that they have a very light dressing that tastes just like the dressing that they usually put on it. I also ordered the minnestroni soup (broth based as you said). I had no breadsticks...3 small bowls of salad with very little light dressing and 1 1/2 servings of soup. I am thinking I might have had 500 cals all total but probably less. emoticon AGAIN for telling me about that option.

Welcome back Calliann! emoticon

I live in Prescott and it is only 43 here today and the wind is blowing like crazy.

Yes, Olive Garden has very good soup and salad as Sharon said. Ask for the dressing on the side and eat the broth based soups.

Hope you have a fun time.

Hugs,

Thank you, Sharon...I didn`t know I could ask for dressing on the side. I figured I had to take it "as is". I did know about their soup and all you can eat salad. I hope I don`t indulge in all you can eat breadsticks... emoticon .Good that I eat less in front of others. Wonder if they have a low cal dressing.

Olive Garden has a nice soup and salad lunch. You can ask for dressing on the side to limit the amount you use and choose a broth based soup rather than a cream/cheese based one.

Good a/m everyone! A beautiful day here in Phoenix, Az. Going to be 69 degrees...and when the sun is shining that is a beautiful day. We are going out to lunch at the Olive Garden with our 20 year old grandaughter visiting from California. I will need to go and check out their menue online to see what is the best low-cal thing I can eat. Does anyone have any favorites that they choose when they are there? emoticon

Good a/m...everyone. I am new to the team but not new to SP. I have been away from SP for 2 years and am happy to be back. I have not finished setting up my page yet, but I do want to be an active part of the team. I will do my part to motivate because as much as I motivate others, it also keeps me motivated. I have had a weight problem all my life...as far as I can remember back to 3rd grade. I am always struggling with eating wayyyyyy too much and under exercizing. (sound familiar?) emoticon Hope we all have a successful day and take it one meal at a time one bite at a time.

Good morning, I know I said I wouldn't be here, but I got confused. I work 6:30 to 11 tonight and go in at 7:30 tomorrow.

Last night was a red letter day. Last week one of the managers was nasty yelling at me for something I not only didn't do, but who ever did had no control over, and she did it in the middle of the store. Another manager got very upset and went to upper management. The first manager wouldn't talk to me. Even when I spoke to her, and there were times I had to, she just stared at me. Well last night she needed me to do something. she called me by my right name, even asked with a please and when I told her I would do it said thank you.

Barbera, When I was six i had really bad headaches. The DR. noticed when I headaches my blood pressure. The Dr told my mother I had headaches because me blood pressure was so low and I should drink 5 cups of coffee a day. Well he had cause and affect backwards, but at 6 I was addicted to 5 cups of coffee a day. I have tried several times to quit. I'm down to 1 cup a day, but every time I try to stop that last cup, I get a headache. The Dr finally said my 1 cup of coffee wasn't doing me any harm and there was no reason to put myself though the pain.

Irene, the printout the Dr gave me suggested doing a rice protein drink. Last fall, when I went for my yearly checkup, the paperwork said the same thing. However, it has come up some. One of the tests, I think the urinalysis, showed that I had some undigested protein. So, the rice would be easily digested. I have some pea protein here that I am going to use. They want to recheck me in four to five months. The charting here on Spark People is helping me see that my protein is indeed low. SO, I am going to try to stay on the high end of it. As for the adrenals, on the site "Woman to Woman" , they have a program to help the adrenals get healthy. I just have difficulty giving up "all" caffeine. I like my cup of tea in the AM.

Have a great day, Everybody! emoticon

Good morning, I'm not sure what I did last night. I was in customer service and can only remember 1 large heavy return and I never took it out of the cart, but his morning y triceps hurt and my back is stiff and sore.

I won't be on tomorrow morning. I get off at 11 tonight and have to be back at 7:30 in the morning. Some how between 11P and 7:30A I have to get home, eat dinner, shower, sleep, eat breakfast and get to work bright eyed and bushy tailed.

Hope the DR finds your energy

Hello, Team! I have not been on here for a few weeks. Have been so terribly tired. Saw our Dr on Friday, and one of the tests she ran said I am still not getting enough protein. The tiredness seems to be coming from stressed adrenals and hormones run amuk! Oh, the joys of senior hood! LOL Hope everyone is doing well!

Hi everyone ... I'm home from vacation and ready to get back to SP. It's lovely to read your posts.

I'm pleased with my trip. I got in 10,000 steps most days and watched the diet as best as I could ... lots of salads. It's always lovely to go, but it's lovely to come home again.

Have a wonderful day!

Good morning, I'm off and have cloths to wash and it's raining. Why is it dry till I'm off and going to do laundry? Kellie made bail, went to the hospital. She was released after 24 hours, that is what the can hold her against her will. So I don't know if the Dr decided she was fine, or she refused treatment. Either way not good for her legal problems.

Good morning, Well I really confused myself. I told everyone last night that I can in at 9 this morning. When I got home at 11:30 last night I checked my board to see if I was working the service center or cashier. I go in at 9 tomorrow morning, I'm working the service center today but couldn't read my own writing to tell what time, I got on the computer this morning I go in at 4:30 this evening.

"Never let life's hardships disturb you…no one can avoid problems, not even saints or sages."

Good morning. Mutt never got his bath yesterday. He is rolling on the floor, Freyja is chasing his legs as the swing around.

When I started at Wal-Mart they wouldn't use my full name. I finally made my own name tag with MARYALICE on it. Customers spend their time trying to pronounce it. When they finally get it right, they say it sounds like the name of a southern bell. I tell them my British mother named me. They then say it must be my southern father must have run the names together. No my Texan father called me Mary.

Well about a week ago of the managers called "Miss Mary", I answered. She then told me that she now had two Miss Marys, I suggested she use my real name. Well a new casher called out to me the other day. Her name tag said Mary. She wanted to know how I got MARYALICE on my name tag. I told her I did it myself. She said she didn't want to put the Alice under under the Mary, she wanted it run it together like mine. She is Maryalice, I'm MaryAlice, but with our names all in caps they are the same She doesn't look like a southern bell either, She is about 6 inches shorter then me, about the same weight, and I'm not sure which is darker her hair, eyes or skin. I don't see very many MaryAllice's and this is the first time I've ever worked with one.

Be careful, MaryAlice. Since you already have a headache and breathing difficulties try not to overdo things. Do you have family you could call on to bathe the dog for you or at least help with the lifting?

Good morning, I did get a walk in yesterday and will try for one today, but I woke up with a headache and can't breath. I worked 8 hours yesterday, am off today and work 8 hours Sat.

Mutt needs a bath so bad. He hasn't had one in awhile since He won't get in the tub on his own, I'm not strong enough to put him in the tub and it is too cold to wash him outside. The temp is going up to 70, not good be better so this afternoon maybe he will get a bath.

Good morning. A beautiful day out, Mutt is ready for his walk. I want to walk but am wondering if I need to save my strength, I think I'll go for a short walk cause I want to. I thought I went in at 2 today, but just checked the board and it says noon, so I guess I better get on line and check my schedule.

Good morning. I'm fighting a cold luckily I'm off today. I don't like to work with the customers hen my nose is running, but don't have any choice. Management wasn't real happy because I kept stopping to use hand sanitizer. When they would give me the "look" for not calling the next customer fast enough, I would point out to the next customer that there was a survey on their receipt. There have always been surveys, but no one has ever pointed them out.

Today is mom’s weekly lunch date, so DH and I will be dining at a local restaurant. I will “pick my meal wisely” then head to the mall with my $10 coupon. Love those coupons that make you go to the store, this pays for the gas getting me to town. Not sure what to buy but a REWARD for myself is do.

Good morning, I'm trying to find a way to talk with Beka about what is going on with her mother. Beka is hiding her true feelings. She acts like nothing is going on, but then yesterday I had to get her from school for cramps that came and went all afternoon. Kellie is charged with aggregated assault with a deadly weapon. The deadly weapon really increases the time and the aggregated means she has to serve 80% of the time before she is eligible or parol. The lawyer is talking 5 years at best hopefully in a mental hospital, but this is Texas and that is a long shot. Beka is holding on to Kellie's lawyer getting her off with 6 months in a mental hospital. I hope Beka is right and don't want to take her hope from her, but wonder about preparing her for the fact 5 to 10 years is more likely.

Beka's brothers have always teased her and well acted like big brothers. Now they are calling her and sending her hugs and kisses. Beka hasn't quite gotten her head around this change, but I think she likes it.

Good Afternoon All.

My son Michael is going home from the hospital today.

It turns out that he did not have double pneumonia after all. It was a virus that attacked his hart. The Drs. said that he probably had it for 6 months. He has to wear a vest that acts like a pacemaker for the next 6 months. If it isn't doing the job he will probably then have a pace maker put in. He is going to be off work for quite a while. Please continue to pray for him.

I thank you my Spark friends.

When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece.

- John Ruskin

Good morning Something interesting happened yesterday, about 8 in the morning a guy knocked on the door. He had tried to turn around in our driveway and ended up in the ditch. He wanted us to pull him out. I told him I didn't think our mini could do the job and they should go to the horse ranch next door and ask if they would. They had a tractor. He said he call someone. About 1 in the afternoon when i was getting ready for work someone pounded on our door. It sounded like they were going to beat it in. It was the police. The guys that drove in our ditch were turning around didn't want to go to the ranch because they had just they had just robbed it.

I saw something on the todays show. Myths about fast food.

Myth one, if you order off the $ menu it is cheaper. The lady bought food for a family of 4 for a week, she did have seasonings and some staples at home, the family eat a well balanced diet with plenty of fruit and veggies. It cost her $125. The man eat off the $ menu at fast food places, just him it cost him $123. He got lots of fat and next to no fruit or veggies.

Myth 2 it is fast. The lady spent 15 to 45 min a per meal cooking for her family. The man spent an ave. of 30 min a meal getting fast food.

So, that I can stay accountable to my myself, it is important that I check in about my weekly progress.

Since Jan 1, I have lost 4.6 lbs. It should be 7 lbs by now.

Loss to date 63lbs.

My goal is 5 lbs per months although I am falling a little short right now, I know, it will pick up.

Have a good week.......team.

Good morning, I worked out the stiff and sore yesterday, but woke up stiff again. I'm fast getting sick of this.

Beka's father found Kellie's inmate #, so Beka wrote to her last night and is feeling much better.

Everyone in the blizzard. Just hunker down and stay put. Good luck to you.

Good morning Spark friends.

I have a prayer request. My son Michael who just moved from CA to CO is in the hospital with double pneumonia. They have also found out that his heart is only pumping at 25%. His lower chambers aren't pumping like they should. They also have found out that he is now diabetic. Since they have just moved to CO he has no insurance at his new job for another month. Now he is farther away from me than before. Prayers for his recovery and be able to get back to work soon.

Thank you so much.
Ginny

"If one scheme of happiness fails, human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we make a second better."
– Jane Austen

Good morning, today is an exercise day. not the normal weight loss exercises, but the ones to get the kinks out of this old body. I'm only 59, the Dr says my life expectancy is 105, most of the time I don't feel like what I see in other 60 year olds, but today I feel it.

Kellie kept trying to call yesterday. I couldn't have answered her calls if I wanted to. The jail doesn't let the inmate calls connect to cell phones. Beka is so upset, she thinks her mother will think she hates her because she won't take her calls. I wasn't going to do anything, but it looks like for Beka's sake I need to find a way for her to write to her mother. I have an address, but haven't been able to get Kellie's inmate # and the jail won't deliver a letter without the inmate number.

Sounds like Beka would be better off with you. We lived in the country when I was in the 5th and 6th grades and I have fond memories of climbing trees and riding my bike down the mile long road out in the country where we lived. before that I was a city girl.

Who I am really keeps surprising me.
Be unstoppable!!!!

"The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty."
– Winston Churchill

Good morning I thought I went in at 2 this afternoon, no I have to be there at 10 this morning. I sure wish I had a set time.

Several have asked about Beka. Beka has started getting her own water. I still make sure she has a glass of water before school and takes a bottle with her. Beka is upset about her mom. I haven't given her many facts, for 1 I don't know much and 2 I keep don't think she needs to know much. Her 1/2 brothers saw what happen so she will learn more then she wants to know from them.

One thing. Beka has been living with me since her mother started having problem. Her father will be transferring from community collage in San Diego to university in LA. Now he is thinking he should get a place where Beka can stay with him since he feels she should be with a parent. We haven't decided what to do and DS hasn't found a place in LA. Beka has mixed feelings. She wants to be with her father, but we live in the country and she has a one acre yard, climbed trees rides her bike and does all the things children can do in the country they can't do in the city.

How sad for the little one. It's a good thing she has you to depend on, care for her and give her the loving attention she needs.

"The most important things to do in the world are to get something to eat, something to drink, and somebody to love you."
– Brendan Behan

Good morning, I have 3 loads of sheets and a load of cloths, it is raining and not expected to stop till late tonight. I'm off today, but go back to work tomorrow so I have to wash cloths. Looks like my house will have cloths hung all over it.

Beka is running slow this morning, but it is hard to be upset with her. Yesterday we got the call that her mother had totally flipped. Kellie had stabbed her boy friend in the gut, putting him in the hospital with a lacerated liver and cut intestines. If the boy friend doesn't have any infections from the bacteria in the intestines he should make a full rapid recovery. Kellie is of course is in jail charged with assault with a deadly weapon. One of beka's 1/2 brothers called us. He was very upset and didn't say when this happen, but Beka spent Sunday with her mom and the boy friend and the brother called last night. This isn't helping a little girl settle in.

I value the friend who for me finds time on his calendar, but I cherish the friend who for me does not consult his calendar.

- Robert Brault

Morning, I think it is, I worked till 11 last night and go in at 11 this morning. It was a mad house yesterday and I expect worse today. Yesterday all the people that were trying to get every thing for the Super Bowl, today all the people that forgot something for a Super Bowl Party, and the blue laws say we can't sell beer till after noon. many cashiers figure we will see many of the ones that bought beer yesterday again this afternoon because the beer didn't make it to today.

They just came on TV to say the vets are seeing ,more and more dogs that have eaten something they shouldn't. Remember people meds aren't good for dogs, Tylenol is poison to dogs, but the pills look like treats to dogs. Many dog meds are made to taste good. Many cleaning products are poisonous to dogs. Read your label, they will say that pets and small children should not come in contact with them keep them locked up, but dogs will lick the counters before the counter dries. Think of your dog as a curious 2 year old. They will find it and they will put it in their mouth.
