I miss the blog part too! It was so nice to get ideas and just show support to your team members. I know a lot of spark teams are really trying to get the message out that they want it back.

Hello I am new to spark people & noticed that there was a Lubbock group. I just wanted to stop in & say hi. My name is Leesa and I have been struggling lately with getting motivated to move & eat better. I decided I would join to make an effort to do better. Wish you all the best in your journey & if there is anything I can do to help please let me know. Have a great day!

Maryann- sounds like you haven't been feeling well for awhile. I hope it isn't anything serious!

I also remember when the Lubbock team was more active; although , I think I joined when it was on the downward slope.

I failed miserably when I tried to get the group together. As things go, everyone is always so busy.

Maybe we can try again as the weather becomes more predictable.

Hi Holly and Everyone,

Holly thought I would go ahead and help if you need me. I really don't want to see this site go totally down. Maybe its memories of how active it used to be and plus I started my journey here with this team.

Moogie, the inches count *just* as much as the scale! I have heard that our cells hold onto water, sometimes making the scale sit stubbornly still, and then sometimes, out of nowhere, whoosh! 2 or 3 pounds are gone. Congrats on the measurements!

Hi Holly! I spent 30 (or more)minutes looking at Einstein's online nutritional information and menu last night, I was hungry lol. I can't decide between a bagel thin egg white sandwich, or a yummy full sizes bagel with spread. The honey almond sounds good, but then again so does the garden veggie. Today is my higher calorie day, so I enjoy these days very much and want to make every calorie count!
Anyhoo-have a wonderful Saturday Lubbock Spark team!!

Welcome Texsherbear to Lubbock Sparkers! I hope you enjoyed Einstein. I LOVE their bagels. The bagels sandwiches are higher in calorie than I would have expected. So, I ususally just go for a bagel and some spread. As you may know, they have a nutrition guide online and I always find it best to look at it before I go out to eat instead of after.

Hi, I just found SP today. It's kind of overwhelming! Lol I tracked my calories for today, ate about 200 more calories than I thought, guess adding calories in my head is not my strong point. I don't exercise, but want to start.
Tomorrow I'm going to Einstein's for lunch. Any recommendations for a low calorie meal?
I have been watching what I eat since December 15, and have lost a little. I eat very low calories every other day(under 500). The diet plan I'm on is called JUDDD. Every other day I eat about 1800 calories, so I eat under 500 one day and under 1800 the next. My calories average about 1150 a day. I have 35 more pounds to lose.
I'm glad to have found this group, I was surprised.

Hi Holly,

The past months my siblings and I have been taking care of my dad, so I have tried to be consistant, but It didn't happen the way I wished it to. Anyway I now am back knowing that my dad is being well cared for. I am so excited that you are the Leader of this group. Hope you have a fantastic day .

I too am not a fan of strength training. I think it is because I get bored with it. This is something I am hoping to focus on this next year. Hopefully my new XTrain dvd's from Cathe Fredrich will get me headed in the right direction.

I really need to schedule some strength training in my workout plans. Why do I dislike strength training so much? I hear so many people say they love it -- what am I missing?

I wish I can say I ate well on Christmas Eve and Christmas day but I can't. However, I did add all my food into the SP nutrition. Today, I went to Planet Fitness and worked out on the elliptical for 50 minutes while watching Breaking Bad on Netflix. I am addicted to this tv series - only on Season 1.

I am not a fan of cardio machines but when the weather is bad... It a good alternative to go the gym.

Holly/Texas. Time Zone: CST; Don't do anything today you can't maintain for the rest of your life; Studies show a mere 11 minutes of weight training 3 times a week is enough to reduce your body fat and raise your metabolism.
