Hi Team,
We sure have not been posting! Summertime is coming, so maybe we can take advantage of the good weather and get together. The beauty of a geographical team is that we can actually meet.

So if anyone is still around, come on over and post.

Sparkfully Yours, Judi

Hi all! I'm back on Sparkpeople after a couple of years. I reached my goal of 139 in 2009 and kept it off until 2012. Now I am back to 160. I did it before and I can do it again. Sparkpeople rocks!!

Happy New Year, Naperville Sparkers! I have some serious changes to make in my eating! I hope everyone is doing OK. Come on over and post. Maybe we will have an outing some time.

They are considering us an inactive team because there have been no posts in three months! So here is a post. I hope everyone is doing well. Anybody want to go out for coffee?

Hi, welcome. Glad to see you posting here. (We are a pretty quiet bunch.)

I exercise at Seven Bridges in Woodridge (but live in Naperville.) I hope some team mates answer you and live near you!

Hey everyone- new to group. I'm trying to find a workout buddy but sadly, I'm in the Lockport area so going to Naperville several days a week can get to be a hassle for me. Anyone on the team close to Lockport/Lemont/New Lenox?

Finding someone with similar exercise goals would be great motivation!

Hey, HI-NRG, I have not completely disappeared. I am still struggling with my eye situation. Also we went on a vacation. We should start thinking about another coffee date.

Yes, there are a couple of us still around. Glad we can stay in contact through SparkPeople. I am into week two of the 5% Fall Challenge. Gotta keep trying to stay motivated. It's so easy to not visit the site and not be bothered tracking.

I've been up and down a little myself lately. Keeping up the fitness but the food intake is rising along with it. Something to work on that is for sure.

Hope more people check out the team.

Hello there, Naperville Sparkers. We sure haven't been posting much! I think most of us are active on other teams. But I do want to keep this one alive because it is nice to have a local team.

If anyone sees this post, come and say hi. Tell us how you're doing.

My weight is up some, and it makes me mad at myself. I have not really been doing what needs to be done!

Hey Team! Is anyone out there? (I guess I have not set up a team outing yet. Life keeps getting busy.)

I am starting a new meetup (as in meetup.com) in Naperville called the Math Success Forum f Naperville. It is geared toward parents of kids in middle school through college as well as college students themselves and also tutors and teachers. I hope we will get some good discussions going. Check it out if you are interested. So far, I have the first meeting set up for July 11th, and four people are coming: me, my daughter-in-law, and two other tutors! ha ha. But I do hope some parents come. It is NOT going to be one big commercial for tutoring. I have tons of topics I want to discuss!

I might set up an outing for June. Stay tuned.

That sounds good. I would hate to see it die out.

I am going to give people a few days to write me back from my mass mailing, and then I'll have a feel for what people want to do. In any case, we will do something soon!

Please keep on going with the team. I didn't join before because it did not appear to be very active, but I would hate to see it gone. I will try to Spark some of my friends to join and sign up for the Naperville team. Maybe we should try a meetup. Possible?

I just wanted to come over and see if anyone is still interested in having this team. We are all leading busy lives. I had TWO major deaths in the family. But in the past, we have enjoyed an occasional meeting together. That is the fun of having a geographical team.

Anyway, I will post this, and maybe I will also send out a team email.

What are everyone's plans for the holidays?

We are going to a New Year's Eve wedding, so that will be fun.

I just heard from a friend that the Santa on the Riverwalk is really a good one.

Edward's is sponsoring a 5K race next Sunday, 10-30-11 in Oswego, IL. It's called Fraidy Cat 5K. I signed up for it, if any other Naperville Sparkers want to join me, just go to www.fraidycat5K.com. I will check back on this page to see who signed up and we can establish a meeting place at the race. I plan to walk and run portions of the race.

Hi Team,
How about an outing?!

Saturday, October 15th
10:30 a.m.
Meet at Centennial Park: take Jackson just west of the beach, and turn into that parking lot. Go through to a smaller parking lot right at the playground.

We can hang out in the park (and there are also rest rooms there) and once we think people have arrived, we can go for a walk if we want. Then afterward, anyone who wants to go out to lunch can do that.

Rain Plan: meet at Pancake Cafe instead.

So, what do you say? (I will post this on the other threads too.)

Judi (please send me spark mail so I will know who might be coming.)

Hi Team,
I got a nasty little note from SP for not posting on this team for a while. I am "team leader" because we need someone to be able to send out emails to the whole team when we want to meet. We are not a big "posting" team. But if anyone wants to start posting more, I will surely reply. I don't think I am just going to come on here and say "hi" in case someone is looking!

Anyway, hope you are all well. If the team feels like an outing, let me know. Maybe we can get together.

The place I go to is in Plainfield on Rt 59, it's called A Cut Above, pretty decent prices and good stylists. I know that's a bit south of you but as long as you can find a way to circumvent the rt 59/rt 30/rt 126 construction nightmare it's a great place :)

So, Team, who else is out there lurking? We talk about zumba a lot! But you can come over and say hi and talk about other things too.

For example, the weather has improved lately! I'm glad to be out of the worst of winter! (In our area, you never know for sure, but it looks promising!)

I'm finally catching on a little more.

I know I have to do some modifications for my knee and my overall condition (age, weight, ...) but I am starting to be able to do more and more of the moves.

My goal is to be moving the whole time, to have fun, to not hurt myself, and to learn more and more steps so I can participate. I like it!

ZUMBA tomorrow!!!!

I went to one class and then I missed one (while on vacation) and then I went to another one. I did much, much better the second time, so I am hoping it is a trend!

Who else is coming tomorrow???

I went to zumba!

I just ordered my new shoes and also a couple of used dvd's to help me learn more of the steps. I was pretty uncoordinated today, but I had fun and I KNOW I burned some calories!

Nice meeting you Pat.

Kirsten, was that you who waved to me at the beginning?

Hi Pat,
I hope you can make it! I am bringing along a friend who has also been wanting to try out zumba (so I will see what she thinks about a nice quick cup of coffee).

Thanks for the offer about the shoulder. I have a massage therapist that I see once a week who lives down the street. She is working on this! I know exactly what I did - - - I have started dragging my laptop around and using it in ways that are NOT set up at a good level. Even though it is a laptop, I usually just use it at my regular spot that is all set up with a trackball mouse and an extra keyboard so that I have the screen raised to eye level - - all the wise things. So recently I started taking this to school with me and also bringing it up to the family room to use while watching TV, and I have really messed myself up!

I have had fibromyalgia for about 20 years, so for me, it's always something. But this is a new one!

I am really looking forward to meeting you!

Sparkfully Yours, Judi

Judi,

What's wrong with your shoulder as I can possibly help you, I am a LMT. Let me know if you want me to take a look at it after zumba, hopefully I can make it. My daughter has what I think is a sinus infection so a trip to the clinic is in order. When she gets antibotics she should be fine.

Hope to see you tomorrow and I am up for coffee but have to work at 1 so cant be too long!

So, is tomorrow the big day for zumba? I am seriously planning to go. Last week, I had a terrible pain in my shoulder and when I read that Pat couldn't go, I bailed.

My shoulder is still giving me trouble, but I feel like giving this a try! I want to show up, buy my punch card for seven visits, and DO IT tomorrow! I hope I follow through.

I'll look here later to see if anyone else is going.

(After zumba, my 1 pm student is not coming, so I have time after class. If anyone has time for coffee or lunch, I'm game. (We'd go in our exercise clothes.)

Sparkfully Yours, Judi

Hi Pat,
I'm glad I read this note. (I have been behind on checking Spark.) I got up to go to zumba for my first time, and I think I will just wait until next week to go.

See you soon.

Judi

Hi Judie,

I apologize but I can't meet up with you this Thursday for Zumba and out for coffee as I forgot I have an appointment that day, I got my weeks mixed up. And then the following Thursday I am not sure as I am supposed to meet up with my accountant to do my taxes, very important! So sorry about that but hopefully we will meet up one of these days.

Have fun!

Pat

Judie, If I were to shower I would just go home as I live right across the street from the Y I am not a big fan of public showers. I was thinking just to run out quickly for a short visit in our exercise clothes.

That sounds great to me! I will probably have a student at 1 pm, so I will eventually need to get home to change.

Do you shower and change there? Or do you leave in your exercise clothes?

If we stick around and get showered and dressed, then I will want to go somewhere than I could get a bite of lunch rather that just coffee before my student, but if we just run out the door, then I can have coffee and visit a bit, and then get home and change and eat lunch.

Sparkfully Yours, Judi

Hi Judie and Kristen,

I didn't go to Zumba either, the alarm in my garage is beeping so I had to take care of that this morning.

Judie, I wear my Capezio dancing shoes to Zumba, you are right sometimes the gym shoes stick to the floor too much when you are trying to do the steps. The Capezio shoes are the ones I wear to BodyJam too, they are like hip hop shoes, they are black and very hip!

Since we are all trying to go next Thursday did you all want to go out for some coffee or in my case chai tea after? We could go to Caribou right down the street!

Pat

Hi Pat and Kirsten,
I am going to start coming to the Thursday zumba class next week! I almost planned to come today, until I remembered a standing appointment that I have on Thursday mornings. Now I have changed it to Tuesdays. I really want to do this!

I called about the non-member punch card, and that sounds great to me. I can't wait. I have never done this before, so I hope I will not have too much trouble catching on.

I am thinking about shoes. I would guess that people wear gym shoes, but I am considering wearing my dancing shoes. I am wondering if the rubber bottoms of gym shoes will make it hard for me to make the moves, and maybe cause troubles for my knees. My dance shoes have slippery bottoms. I wonder if I will look like a geek if I wear them.

Any thoughts?

Judi

Hi Pat - sent you a message thru spark mail too...
I'm so disappointed because I don't think I can make it to Zumba today :(. I've been to every class since the new year and I was looking forward to meeting you. My daughter is home sick today & I have to go into work for a few hours. Hopefully next week...If I am able to make it work, I am about 5'8" with dark hair (just past my shoulders). If I'm not, I will definitely be there next week & hope to see you!

Oh boy, it is actually possible that I could try zumba! I have thought about it for so long. Maybe I will call over there and get the details. If I figure it all out and decide to come this Thursday, I'll post here telling you.

Yes I am planning to go to Zumba this Thursday, maybe we can meet outside the door of the studio if you are going. My name is Pat by the way!

Struggled this weekend too! My son had a bball tournament in the Dells and it was hard to find healthy choices - went out Sat night with the other parents and had drinks which doesn't help either! I managed to gain a few too! Hoping it's mostly water & will come off quickly. So, PCW, are you going to Zumba this week? We should try to meet! I would love to meet for motivation also, but the weekends are challenging, unless it's early Saturday (except this Sat).

Judi,

I think you can buy a punch card for the classes if you are not a Y member, it is seven punches for $70 the last time I checked so $10 a class. I don't know if they are still doing that or not but you can check it out and see or I can ask for you next time I go.

I didn't eat that great yesterday as it was Super bowl Sunday but I am back on track today. Got to wear a swimsuit by May so I am seriously motivated! emoticon

Rachel, you can give me crap any time! (Pardon our language!)

I am sure I would love zumba but I never seem to be able to fit into the timing.

The Thursday morning one could work, but I don't belong to the Y any more. I wonder if they have a non-member fee for that class???

As for an outing, I'm game. In the past, Saturdays seemed to work well for a lot of people. That is still my best day.

Zumba is a cardio based Latin rhythm dance class. the music is upbeat and the steps are very basic, it is a lot of fun. Of course it helps if you can keep the beat and can do basic dance steps, otherwise you might feel awkward. I love it because I love the music and it gets me pumped up and it doesn't feel like exercise...it is FUN!! Better than walking on a treadmill anyday which I find deadly! emoticon

Kirsten I am so glad we were able to help.

What is zumba? I've never even heard of it.

Anyone up for an outing soon? I think it would help all of us to get together and meet each other so we can really hold each other accountable. Just ask Judi... I used to give her crap all the time if she wasn't staying on track :). Just kidding... luv ya Judi.

I took that same Zumba class this morning at the Y! You are right she was really good, that was my first time in a long time. I do the BodyJam classes there a few times a week, Angie and Lynn are great, Angie teaches on Friday mornings and some Monday evenings, and Lynn teaches on Sat mornings. I can't be there every Sat but every other one I am there!

Thanks for the motivation! I joined the second week in January and have been really motivated until a few days ago - your note came just in time!!! Being home with the snow took me out of schedule and feeling like, "who cares what I eat." Trying to get back in the swing of things today. I have a zumba class that I love but it's at the YMCA on 95th Street in S.Naperville. It's so much fun! The instructor I like only teaches Thursday at 10:20 a.m. but I know she said she does two classes for Naperville Park District also. Her name is Kristen. She's great.

Hope everyone has a good day tomorrow!
Kirsten

Yay team! We are posting now!!!

Where is there zumba around here? I have never tried it yet but always wanted to, but I don't know who has it. I belong to Edward at 7 bridges, but their zumba is just one time a week and I can't make it then.

Hi Everyone!

Darkdreamer ~ welcome back. I hope you have recovered from your surgeries and illness and are feeling healthy!

A big thanks to Judie_Cutie who got me started with SP in late August. I've lost almost 40# since 9/1/10! I'm THRILLED!! Been exercising about 6 days per week.

For walking in the winter, I do the Leslie Sansone Walk Away the Pounds videos at home or do the dreadmill at the gym. Because I live close to downtown Naperville, I love going to the River Walk when it's warmer. Got a new bike last summer, but I was so heavy I could barely make it around the neighborhood. Looking forward to riding more this year! Will check out some of the bike paths that were mentioned.

Love the accountability here ~ I log my food every day and collect my sparkpoints. I post several times a week on a monthly challenge board. It's great to read about everyone's successes and challenges. Hanging around other people who are losing has helped me to lose too. It inspires and motivates me.

Take care!
Fran
