emoticon The NovemBurn Goal was to burn 10,000 Calories for the month. I burned 22,532 Calories so --- 225% of the Goal, LOL!! I wonder if that makes me An OverAchiever?

emoticon December's Challenge is to "Run Like Rudolf" -- at least 50 Miles this Month. I am at 25 Miles today.

emoticon My Sister gave me the Spark Tracker last Saturday Afternoon. If you aren't familiar with it, when you register it On-Line you are Automatically entered in to a Month Long Contest (Oct 1 - 31) to get 100,000 Steps in 30 Days. I had not planned on even thinking about the Contest because I got it so late in the Month.
emoticon Then, yesterday Afternoon I realized that I was already at 58% of the 100,000 Step Goal -- Thanks to a Nifty Little Graph that is added to your Fitness page when the Tracker is Active.
emoticon I stepped up the Walking Today, rode the Recumbent Bike for 50 Minutes Yesterday, and for 45 Minutes Today. As a result I am now at 89% and we haven't even walked to the Store yet!!

Hi all! Just wanted to check in and wish you a great weekend. It is beautiful here in California and I have had a wonderful time hanging with my daughter and taking some walks around the lovely Berkeley hills. No baby yet but that's okay....we are ready when she is ;). I'm looking forward to hearing what is happening in your lives. Take care and Spark on!

AND, the BEST Part is that I found out this evening that My Sister and My Dad will be there too!!!!

That sounds like fun, Jeannie! Did you guys get married in Vegas originally? I have only been through Vegas on my way further west but my daughter and her husband had a wonderful vacation there a couple of years ago.

I will see the the ocean but I won;t be going in. The San Francisco bay isn't exactly my idea of a beach vacation ;).

I'll check in later in the week when I get settled at my daughter's.

DH wants to Re-New Our Vows at the Little White Wedding Chapel on our 25th Anniversary and while we are there we may take a Day Trip to see the Ocean in California. No Definite Plans or Dates yet.

I've been busy this week getting things done before I leave for California next week. Today I had a double cleaning and didn't feel like doing much after that. The weather has been good for outside walking but I just haven't felt motivated. I will definitely walk tomorrow.

I hope everyone is having a great week. Anyone planning something fun or exciting for the weekend?

emoticon Glad that you are moving on and Learning from this little detour. Hormones are Not Nice!!! I am glad that you got to spend time with your Daughter.
emoticon Got Very Sick after Lunch yesterday, and did not eat or do much at all the rest of the day. I did go to my Early Morning Job because it is basically just Sitting for 2 hours and repositioning the patient once. I felt like I could handle that, but I called my Client at the Nursing Home and told her I would wait until tomorrow to see her. She is Much More Lifting and Work. By about 4:00 this afternoon I did feel better, and I think I will be close to 100% tomorrow.
emoticon I did end up getting in a Kettlebell workout and a couple of good Walks today.

I hit a bit of a rough spot this past weekend. I was really looking forward to my daughter and her boyfriend coming to stay and it was wonderful to see them. But, I found my mood just plummeting on Saturday and by Sunday night I felt SO low. I'm pretty sure my hormones are to blame but I just lost all motivation and ended up eating a whole bag of Liquorice Allsorts (600calories) in ONE sitting. Of course, that just made me feel worse :(.

Anyway, one of my strategies in maintenance is to try to leave my "all or nothing" perspective behind. So...even though I had a bad day yesterday, I am moving forward and not letting my set back become an excuse to throw in the towel. This morning, DH and I went into town to walk around the lake. My knee was hurting a bit but I made it around the 5.4 miles. My eating today has been controlled.

I hope everyone else had a great weekend!

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. I had a wonderful weekend. DH and I had the house to ourselves because our adopted son was away. It was pouring cats and dogs off and on all day Saturday but we still had a chance to fit in a walk around Lake Fayetteville (5.4 miles). That evening my DIL took us out for dinner and I was able to enjoy a glass of wine and only eat half of my entree! Then today, we went into town to church for the early service, out for breakfast and then took another walk. It was SO relaxing and active!

The week ahead beckons....it is a new chance to make every day count. Whatever happened last week, it's in the past. If it wasn't good....forget it and move forward. If it was good....take that positive energy into the coming week and keep on keeping on!

It has been raining all day here for the first time in weeks! They are promising us cooler weather after the rain moves out which will be wonderful. This weekend, our little town hosts a big festival called, BB and BBQ (Bikes, Blues and BBQ) so there will be thousands of visitors and LOTS of noise. We live out of town but I think that we will head even further out and go hiking tomorrow. emoticon I am taking a break from exercise today to help my knee heal but I will look forward to getting some activity.

I hope everyone enjoys their weekend! emoticon

emoticon Not exactly what I would call "Fall" Weather, but it has started to cool off a little bit. And it has rained at least a little every day since the State Fair opened.
emoticon Yesterday there was even a "Downburst" of Wind and rain (not sure what exactly that is, but that is what the Weather Dudes have been calling it all day) right over the Fair Grounds and there was a fair amount of damage and even a few injuries.

Hoping to get in a Walk before work this afternoon, it is 'Only' in the 80's right now. Not sure how much warmer it is supposed to get.

Hi all....just a quick check in to say "hi" and that I am back in California for the rest of this week. I hope everyone is doing well. Today, my daughter and I will be running around Berkeley getting things for the nursery and, hopefully, choosing fabric for the baby quilt that I will be making for my new granddaughter in November. It's a beautiful day here in the Bay area....what's happening in your worlds?

Just checking in to see what kind of a week everyone is having. It's already Thursday here down under so I am on the downward slope of the week. I have struggled all week with a lack of energy and the feeling like I might be coming down with something. Today, I decided that, come hell or high water, I WAS going for a walk. I just got back and, as usual, I feel better!

Anyone got interesting plans for the weekend ahead? Tomorrow, DH and the family and I will be taking a 10K coastal walk. I am looking forward to great views of the ocean. I will be flying back to California on Sunday so I will be out of touch for a bit.

Hope everyone is doing well. emoticon

What about this fall? Do you think we will have some nice colors on the trees? I live in the Ozark mountains and it can be SO pretty except in drought years when everything is just brown. I'm hoping for a beautiful fall!

I think that it is one of the wettest summers on record in Northwest Arkansas too! Since I have been on vacation, there has hardly been a day when I haven't received a thunderstorm or tornado warning on my phone! DH and I remarked on how green OK was when we drove through earlier this month on our way west....that explains it. I wonder what kind of a winter we will all have? Can anyone say, "Lots of snow?"

emoticon I am in Central Oklahoma. We have had a Crazy Amount of Rain this Year. But the weather is Cooler than usual so I am enjoying the Walks more.
emoticon emoticon emoticon We have 2 Stray Cats who adopted us, and a Stray Turtle (Red Eared Slider) that I found on a Walk 3 Years ago. I had No Idea how Big he would get and how much Personality a Turtle can have, LOL!! The little Male Cat LOVES to follow Hubby and I when we walk to 7-11 every night. Total is a little over One Mile. But he keeps up with us pretty good, and waits outside the Store while we get our Drinks & Snacks.

I'm in central Kansas

Biggest challenge is getting my exercise in....I tend to do it halfway!!

Biggest success is getting my eating under control....no over eating or extra treats!!

I am currently not working and home alone all day long waiting for my dh to get home from work....we live in the country on a farm although we don't farm. It's about 5 acres and an old old farm house....I do have 11 chickens and about as many cats...and a large garden.

My youngest dd lives about 45 minutes from me...her little family consists of my 1 year old grandson and her dh.

My oldest dd lives in Denver with her hubby and my 2 granddaughters...1 and 3

My son lives about an hour away and is single and farms and has cattle.

The change begins with me and it begins now!

We spent the day touring around the Hunter Valley and doing some wine tasting. Lots of fun but NO exercise to speak of. If I was at home, I would pop in a Leslie Sansone DVD and at least get a mile or two in but since I am not and it's late, I will have to wait until tomorrow morning.

Where do you live, Jeannie? You mentioned that it was 70F in the morning an was probably going to heat up...are you in the South?

emoticon Got in a 3 mile walk this morning. It really is a Beautiful Morning here, too! No wind and still in the mid 70's so far. I am sure that it will heat up soon, LOL!!

I am headed into Sydney for the day today (it's already Saturday here :)). Anyone else have something fun planned for the weekend?

Too much time has past to pick up the previous conversations so let's just start from here shall we?

Why don't we share some of our biggest challenges these days as well as our biggest successes?

I'll start...

Right now, I am spending about 6 weeks traveling to visit my kids and grand kids. My biggest challenge is not having control over the meals that are being prepared in the various homes. My biggest success was asking for a scale to be put in the guest bathroom so that I could weigh daily.

Now you...

There is so much talk about sweeteners, you don't know what to believe. I like Splenda, I have tried Stevia, it just isn't sweet. I don't like sweet/low and don't really care for Equal. Problem with splenda is I get gas in the evenings. Now, if I don't have to be in public, it's no big deal, just my hubby has to put up with it. My friend says it gives her gas too. But, there isn't anything I like better so far, so it's worth the complication.

Has anyone read the book " Sweet Poison " by Janet Starr Hull ? That book will literly scare you to death, if you've been using aspartame. I had cut back on diet sweetners, but never paid any attention about the different ones. It was all just diet sugar to me. But I will never ever use aspartame again.

Hope it helps. That's bad about how you hurt yourself. Hope the chiro can help it.
Have you tried using heating pads on the area? I know for me, heat works better than ice anytime.

Nothing special happening, just trying to keep going and not get discouraged. I've had a set-back with my body. Slipped on some ice a week ago Sunday and messed up my neck from catching myself. It's like I have whiplash. So, the nerves down my arm to my elbow burn and itch and my thumb and index finger tingle and are numb at times. Trying the chiro thing for him to straighten up my neck problem. Seems to be worse at times, but I know that happens before you get better. I sure hope something kicks in soon. Hard to work at my job in data entry when the burn is on. So, I've prayed and got the rest I need and used cold packs on it and taken Tylenol arthritis so I can get through the day. Then, I can think about that I really need to get to my arthritis water class, And I think I will do it today and see if the water can help break up what's going on. I won't go overboard, just try to move my arm a bit. Gosh, it has to get better, can't get much worse. But it gives me that wake-up call that I MUST get some weight off this body and take better care of me. Wish me luck in exercise class.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Tuesday. Doing anything special?
