I have fallen in LOVE with that girl's blogs. It's like she reads my mind and writes down exactly what I am thinking. Such insight into this whole process...for being so young.

Today, I had a really productive day and that sure makes me feel good. Slept in but not too late. Hit the Mall to find shoes for my new outfit - scored at Ross! Came home and did a good bit of housework and then did a cardio workout. Got a couple of projects for work completed and emailed. About to hit the sack feeling like I accomplished something. Hope y'all had a good day too. emoticon

I love when the opportunity comes up like that to talk about SP. Last week I ran into an old friend I had not seen in a couple of years at the bank. She walked up and told me I looked great and was so skinny. Made my day of course but also gave me a chance to say "I joined sparkpeople.com and lost 40 pounds".

So Carol, if your week is busy, does that mean the weekend comes faster? I have been busy at work too but I swear today, I could not believe it was only Wednesday!

No. I just use my Wii, hike, walk my neighborhood and use my treadmill. In other words free and easy to access. I think the Y will let you visit free. We used to have a family membership years ago.

Angela, I am a wimp in the heat so I have been exercising indoors. Can you join us on Saturday mornings to walk in Cordova Mall?? It is a nice way to start the day and great company to walk with.

I was thinking about the Sanshaker, but I have a pretty full weekend already. I do the McGuire's run every Tuesday. Next week is number 10 for me, then I will be out of town the next Tuesday. The week after that, I want to try the Hopjacks run on Wednesday's for a while.

Does anyone plan on doing a 5K this Saturday? There's one on Pensacola Beach, the Sandshaker; and also one in Florala, the Alligator Trot. I'm trying to decide which one to do. Has anyone done either of these before?

Also, does anyone do the McGuire's 5k Tuesdays? I thought I had read that you had Carol. I'm planning on starting my first of ten next Tuesday.

Heavy cleaning is on the tracker for SP. Maybe you mean your Cardio watch, though. I don't have one as I'm too frugal to spend money on one, since I wouldn't do any more or less if I had it anyway. emoticon

Although I was scared at the idea and had not done it before, I tried a new activity on our vacation. At my DS's suggestion, we all went on a guided kayak tour of the area. None of us had ever been kayaking so a guided tour was the best option. It was great and I would SO go again. It is quite a bit of work on the upper body and core. It was a 2 hour trip. The area we were at is very calm but it was windy that morning so that increased the challenge. Saw a dolphin so that was a plus.

Has anyone else tried kayaking?

Heather, I paid $55 for the original watch thru Amazon.com--it was model 920. I bought it over a year ago (Feb 2008) and they didn't even ask for purchase info--they just replaced it. I was thrilled with the customer service--I emailed the problem and they emailed where to send it.

Carol, thanks for the info. I actually didn't buy the watch for the calorie feature but it is a nice bonus. Glad that it might be comparable to yours--that lends some measure of accuracy.

I have a Sportline Solo 925 that doesn't require a chest strap. It is a watch with a touch button for HR and it calculates calories burned too. I had to send my old one back--it malfunctioned after the battery was changed on it and the company promptly sent me a brand new one--newer model. I am looking forward to checking it out compared to Carol's.

I've been cleaning too! I wish we could track that as exercise.....

What kind of HR monitor is it? One you strap on your chest? I like that watchlike one you had the last time we walked together.

Hope everybody has a great weekend. I spent the day cleaning house & paying bills. So I should have an easy weekend. I still need to get my outdoor exercise in so maybe a walk around the nabe will do it. My DH is playing in a golf tournament so it will be a solo walk. Time to try out my headphones and new HR monitor.

Boo
well its been forever since i was here, lots of this and that going on....
haven't felt well since the holidays, found out 2 weeks ago i had shingles ( virus apparently you get when your run down and had chicken pox as a kid) but....... good news is i finally feel a lot better.
spent the day at the sausage festival today with family, 3 kids and 4 grandkids, had a blast, but came home tired.
so my new goal, now that i am starting yet again on this quest, is to do something outside everyday for at least an hour ( oh yea, i apparently had a vitamin d deficiency) and enjoy life again.
will be checking in more, thanks to all for just being here, i will be active again soon

I should keep my words soft and sweet, in case i have to eat them.

Yes - the sun is out and I'm THRILLED! My yard needs attention and it's a beautiful day - temperature is perfect.

I see where Carol asked about Skopelos ... it was AWESOME!! Since then I've discovered Shang Hai take-out steamed vegetables ... they are SO GOOD and filling! Who could ask for more?!?!? Awesome goodness delivered to the door in a throw away container? Now ... if only Skopelos delivered ...

Ty, I thought so, but didn't take the time to track the original thread.

I have learned that I must love myself where I am at rather than some unattainable concept placed in my head by distorted media social norms. And guess what? I kinda like who I am.

Just us being silly. If you are tempted to over-indulge, you resist and instead give it to the chunky monkey to eat. Kind of like a challenge. Does that make any sense?

I hope that is the right way to explain it--that is how I understand it.

Thanks, Rita.
We went to the Cancer Center at Sacred Heart yesterday and he saw the Oncologist, who happened to have gone to Medical School in Boston, and he "hit it off" with Nathan, since Nathan lived in Boston and worked at the Cancer Lab at MGH.
He told Nathan he will need to have 3 rounds of ChemoTherapy with a 3 drug combo and that he needs to "bank sperm" because he could be sterile after the treatment. BUT, it should be alright in the long term. It seems that Testicular Cancer has more movement outside the body, where sperm are to go, so it isn't like having a lung cancer tumor, etc.

Just checking in! I haven't been too good on the dieting lately (too much candy around) but I have been doing a mile on my treadmill almost every day for about 3 weeks now, so I hope that helps.

Hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day! Too bad about all this rain, though.

My son, Nathan, had his CT Scan at Sacred Heart and it didn't show any Tumors in his abdomen or lungs,but the 3 types of cancer cells that the tumor had from the testicular cancer is the aggressive type and so he will have to have at least two rounds of Chemo. We are waiting now to see the Oncologist and get treatment started which will take about 3 months. Thanks for all your support.

Thank you for the support concerning my son, Nathan. His surgery for Testicular Cancer was at SACRED HEART and went well. Now on Monday, he has a CT SCAN there to see if it has spread, as the Pathology report showed the tumor had 3 types of cancer cells. He is 24 and healthy as he works out daily and does JUDO at NAS. At any rate, he says it will make him a better doctor, as he will have more sympathy for patients after he is through medical school.

I know what you mean about the ticker. I DID NOT want to move mine back up when I got home from Vegas. I finally did, (after I had lost some of the weight) but when I gained again over the holidays, I didn't move it up again. But, when the new year got here I decided to let the fishy do the backstroke and push it back up. It was hard...but it is what it is. I'm not perfect. All, I can do is get back on the plan and get the weight off.

Congrats on your big drop. That IS very encouraging!

On Jan. 2 when I last posted here I weighed in at 197.4 (the weight I didn't want to move my ticker to.)

Today it is down to 192.6! I'm still not moving my ticker until I can move it down. Moving it back up feels like defeat to me, but leaving it where it is, is encouraging - I did it before and I can do it again, and the ticker is proof of that. Just the way my mind works, I guess.

I think it helped to get back to work and be up and moving around instead of sitting on my backside all day. The next 5 pounds will probably be harder, but this has encouraged me.

I didn't lose and didn't gain ... I nibbled on this and that; however, counted calories and when I reached my max I quit eating. I reached the high end of my desired calorie range a LOT!! I'm hoping to pick up the pace this month - gotta lose 12 pounds by Valentine's Day. I usually weigh once a month so I'll check my progress the end of January. Thank you Carol for the "Valentine's Day Challenge"!!

Well Carol, I have the secret to no holiday weight gain--get a really nasty virus (or maybe it is the flu)! New years day I ate 1 graham cracker and drank gingerale. Friday, I ate 1/2 a bagel and drank gingerale. Saturday, I ate a bowl of cereal, 1 graham cracker and gingerale. Today was my 1st full meal. Oh and I have ABSOLUTELY no cravings for chocolate which is somewhat miraculous but I bet it won't last. Obviously I was down a couple of pounds but not in the good lasting way so actually I don't recommend my method to any of you my friends. BLEH! emoticon

Sooner or later, you gotta face the truth. Then you can build your strategy to deal with it. As long as you avoid knowing where you are at, you avoid dealing with it.

I almost wish I hadn't weighed myself this morning! But I don't want to change my ticker. I think I will look at that as my next goal. I wonder - if it goes on quickly, is it easier to lose it again?

I did some time on my treadmill this morning, too.

If anyone made it through without gaining, I'd like to know how they did it! My fishy on my weight ticker will be doing a little backstroke come Saturday. It's time to get serious and get the holiday pounds off, plus press on to meet my final goal.

New year...New start...anyone with me????

My cards are done, except for just a few more. I still have lots of shopping to do. I will bake a little the week of Christmas...but nothing like the massive baking I have done in the past.

Got some shopping done today so that I can start my holiday baking. Not doing too much but want to make some things for neighbors & co-workers. Now I have to start on my Christmas cards--I bought them but it does no good if I don't mail them. Slowly wrapping gifts too.

As of right now, I just hit 10,000 Sparkpoints! It is a symbolic milestone. My next real milestone is 1 year on SP which comes up in January. I am proud of these milestones--it means I am sticking to it. Yeah!

I too love Christmas! Our tree is up and the house is decorated ... I even wrapped a few gifts today while Christmas music played in the background - I especially enjoy the old hymns. There is something magical about Christmas! Even those who do not share the Christian faith can, and do, appreciate the message of peace and hope that Christmas brings. I wish each and every one of you a blessed Christmas filled with family, friendship and love.

Nancy...I'm getting there...in the holiday spirit. Put my tree up yesterday and did a little shopping. This week I'll be mailing packages and Christmas cards. So much to do, but it's fun!

JIBBIE...I did enjoy the Zumba class. I've got a ways to go to learn those moves. I'll check out YouTube. I'm feeling it in my abs today. Nice!

Carol, I'm so glad you went to ZUMBA class. It is so much fun!!

I love the clips on YouTube as you can learn a lot of the moves for free. It is all in the "hips" so they claim. emoticon

I am getting so excited about the holidays. I am like a kid about the decorations--mesmerized by the lights. And the gift I ordered for my DH was delivered today!

How is everybody's holiday prep coming along?

Cyndi,
I hate to see you go--you will be missed. Of course I understand about being spread too thin. I wish you all the best and if you ever want to stop by and say HI, you will find a friendly ear. Happy Holidays to you and yours.
Hugs, Nancy

Pensacola Sparkers: I moved away from Florida in June and you were kind enough to let me stay part of the team. We have settled in Oak Harbor, Washington and I am a member of the Washington Team. I was just thinking today that I have so many teams that I do not have time to be active in all of them. SO, I am leaving this wonderful team. I want to thank you all for your support. Keep up the good work on your weight loss journey. Keep up the great support and motivation for one another! I wish all of you a Blessed Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!
Good Bye, Cyndi

I guess I am a "purist"! I like a real fireplace with real logs burning. I like poking at the fire and rearranging the logs to get the most heat. I lived in a house with no furnace for a few years, and every day I would come home and get the fire going! It was cold, but very cozy. Later we did get central heat, but I still loved that fireplace.
