Good morning! I am new to this team and excited to also be on a BLC team challenge for summer. I'm very pumped about it and am hoping to get to 'Onederland' by August. I've got 15 lbs to go! Woo Hoo! I look forward to getting to know you all!

Smiling! I am looking forward to tomorrow. Due to surgery I received on Tuesday, my arm is still in a brace, bandaged up and I need to keep it elevated. I am taking this time as an opportunity to plan out my new, "Healthy and Fit", diet and schedule.
Tomorrow will be one day closer to my arm being healed. If it sounds silly to think of it that way, fine. A smile on my face makes my journey of fitness a bit more simple. emoticon

Leader needed for this team.

Just got a notice that a team leader is needed. I am thinking that most of us have moved on to greener pastures but still drop in from time to time as I have done. I have always liked that we were a small group. Will some one step up and motivate!? Let us talk!

Good Morning!
I am still in the dark ages with all the tech stuff. I have a plain cell phone and we have been talking about smart phones but really have no clue as to what all the hype is about them, giggle with me! That you can ck on food while your dining out sounds great!
It is a new week so let us all charge into it!

I should have no excuses for not exercising for I am only working 9-6 on monday and tuesdays. Only thing is I stand on hard tile all day, and by the end of the day my feet hurt so badly I can hardly walk. I am going to Walmart and see if those expensive insoles will help at all. If not, I might have go to to a doctor and see what I need to do. I am sure being over weight is not helping me at all!

I have been keeping track of what i eat. That has helped a lot! My new phone helps with it, I can log in what I eat when I am away for the house. I Use both spark peoples log and another app. where if I am at a restaurant, I can check the menu and make even smarter choices before I order. The temptations are still great, and the excuses still get in the way. But, I am determined more than ever!!!
The main reason is, Friday, My son Nathan( you might remember he is at Auburn 4th year with an Air Force scholarship) He found out That he did get a pilot slot for the Air force. So I want to be healthy and of course look good at his graduation next year. He will be commissioned at his graduation . I know He wont think much of it, but i don't want to be embarrassed for him next year in his pictures we will all take.

So what do you want? I like a goal, I like to measure up and say I DID IT and I know you do too! We all are working for .... weight loss, health..A better life and image of ourselves!
What do you want? This Is Feb. Get your idea's in here now, we need to work!
Create yourself! You are Fabulous!

Hi ladies! (and men if one reads this)

Well, it is never too late to begin again!! Getting the right mind set is the start. Keeping motivated and caring about ourselves helps. I think we can all fall into sabotaging ourselves. We ARE worth it....every bit of effort!!!!!!

Keep on chatting and we can encourage each other!!

It's me yet again. Trying to do this yet again. I keep saying this time I want it to work, but I always let my excuses get in the way. That is the first time I really called it what it is, Before, I would blame my weight and health on my husbands bad habits. I have to decide to be the influence of healthy eating and exercise instead.

Aww! What a great gift of a story! I wonder if I could be such a Grandma. I know I am old enough! ;) I miss little kids, well I miss mine!
How is everyone holding out? Are you stressing about christmas? Five days OMG! only five days. were not doing much this year, no money and less cheer, much less cheer this year. No nothing drastic just a series of events to slow us down. I on the other hand am pleased
with the baggie pants I wear.
So, let us know what your up to!

Telling my 3 year old grand daughter. "I feel I can fly!" She told me to fly. I was pushing her in a stroller at the time. I explained that I couldn't fly and then she surprised me. She shouted, "Run, Grandma, Run!"
I ran, we hopped over curbs. I Pushed the stroller all wiggly, I ran more, hopped another curb and then I slowed down. It was so much fun to see the joy in her cute, little face,
warning: Wearing your brace is not going to stop your back from hurting if you over do this. It was a bit idiotic for me to behave this way today. Hopefully a soak in the tub will take sway the pain that my pain med.s didn't. That beautiful smile on my grand daughters face was worth it.
Guess I tricked myself into exercise again. emoticon

Hi all! i am frustrated with not keeping in touch. we are all trying to do the same thing, weight loss, getting into shape. Balance, tip toeing the tight rope. What's your challenge for this month? do you challenge yourself?
Me, OMG! I think to much and do so little, gosh, with all the pondering I do, I could have fed all that were hungry, clothed the naked and solved all the energy problems. The world has some big , big issue's Start small, with yourself. Create your self, one small step at a time!
One step! other steps will come and you will make them! Oh gosh, shoot me! Did I just hand out this advice? SHOOT ME NOW! Put me in a padded wagon and drag me away!
Take care my friends, stay in touch!

Trickery! I often need to mess with my head to get myself to do what needs to be done. Crocheting, stuffed animals for my grandchildren has got to be done. I need my exercise time too. I turned on music, grabbed my yarn and hook, and I 'boogied'! I really enjoy this. With all the steps, kicks and lunges I do, I get a work out. I was exercising for over an hour.
Today is a great day for me. I'm re-learning the things that I need to do to lose weight and get into shape again. I hope that you have a great day too.

Negative results? Hog wash! Today is going to be a great day. Your *awareness* of the '"merger being terrible on your health" is fantastic. You saw the problem, you see the solution. You just go for it woman, you've got it solved!

My spider bite infection is cleared up, but practically my whole family has come down with a terrible cold/flu. We're getting it whipped though.
I had a great day yesterday, and today is going to be fantastic too. (I'm not letting upset stomach or congestion get me down. It sure beats having a spider bite infected foot.)

I've been gone for so long, and I'm seeing the negative results. This merger has been horrible on my health - I can't even remember the last time I got in a good workout. But that's changing today. My bag is in the car, and I'm set to leave work at 6:00 to get in a run. I have a 5k on Saturday, and I want my time to go down, not up.

So happy Tuesday! Make it a great one!

Goal: Have a Great Day! Woo Hoo! This morning was my last dose of 'Spider Bite Infection Medication'! Party Time tonight. My two year old yoga instructor and I are going to work out with some DVD's tonight.
Don't laugh. This tot knows what he's doing? I saw him doing yoga with his mother and it blew me away. He is such an inspiration.
It is now time for me build a healthier life style and schedule. It's weird how becoming impaired by a spider bite infection can open your eyes.

Hi all,

I've been MIA for several weeks. My company is being acquired by a much larger CPA firm and I've been so involved in the transition process that it's taking all of my time. I haven't been able to work out in several weeks, but I'm hoping to get back on track once this becomes effective (November 1) and most of this work is behind us.

I love the goal of a great day - that should be a permanent goal for everyone!

I have been ailing for days now. I learned something though. If you are into exercising, and you become sick, you need to remember to stretch, even though you feel terrible. My muscles got so tight, I had to soak in the tub.
If you feel like you 'just can't fix something healthy to eat', don't do the quick fix. Take a little bit of extra time to eat right. I don't even remember what I ate, but I had so much acid in my stomach it burned.
I've already done some stretching today and I am going to eat some oatmeal for breakfast.
Have a great day. A great day is my goal today too.

Hello Team. The Huddle Wall looks good and motivational today. It is good to see. I over did it a bit yesterday, but, I did remember to get my sleep.
Tonight I am having a dance party. It'll just be me and my little ones. I have a good DVD that the children dance to. And......... yes, my grand children do these dances so well, they make me feel like a 'wanna be'. haha
I wish you a splendid day.

Sleep-I did it! I went to bed by 9 last night I woke up in two hours. I made my self go back to sleep, and I got up at 6:30 this morning. 44 years old and I'm 're-learning' how to schedule my life.
I stretched, did leg lifts and reverse plank, before I ate 1 serving of oatmeal. I'm doing alright. I'm trying to schedule my life for a healthier me.
One pack of cigarettes lasted me 3 days. Can I make this pack last me longer? I believe I can.
I plan to hike up the hill today with my dogs. My dogs motivate me to run.
Oh my goodness! I was complimented on my weight loss, by my boyfriend. That was weird. I didn't think he's notice until I get back down to 137 pounds. I still have around 40 pounds more to lose. His positive reaction is motivating for me.
Come on Team, we can do it!

Sorry to hear that you're not feeling well, but use that weight loss to help motivate you. Remember what it feels like to have your jeans on, and once you're feeling better, work to keep the weight off.

Becoming ill 6 days ago, I'm not eating much. I'm still taking care of every day chores and things, but I am sleeping alot. I can fit into my jeans again. It is weight loss from being sick, so it doesn't count. I refuse to write it down.
I've got new plans for my health and weight loss. I can't wait until I feel better to start. I am starting now with recalling the importance of water and sleep.
My motivation is high and I can feel success in my efforts coming on. It's amazing how you can feel so sick yet, yet hope and motivation is still there.
Sorry for rambling on...... but I think I've found the right mind set.
Let's make it happen!

We're definitely seeing fall today - it probably dropped about 20 degrees from yesterday! But that's okay - it's kind of nice.

I'm not sure why I took off so much time with running. I think part of it was the workload during different parts of the year, and not wanting to run inside on the treadmill. And it was too hot to run outside. I can't get up early to run - if I did, I'd never get any sleep. And that makes it harder to make sure to get my workouts in. But I have to stop making excuses and just do it.

The Tinker Bell 1/2 is Disney's newest run, in Disneyland. My sister and I thought we would go there and visit family, since we're from there.

Good morning!

It seems my summer is really over. It has just been ugly out, leaves are falling the rain has been hard. With that happening I just have not gotten myself up and moving. I think most of my problem is the lack of light. 5AM 43 degrees

Tricia why so long off the running? What is the Tinker Bell run for? I know you can do this!



I will not give up or give in.

I will be my own best friend!

How's everyone doing? I actually made it to the gym last night and did my 30 minute run, and threw in some sit-ups with it. It felt god, but it was hard to run. I feel like I'm so out of shape with it. I have 1 1/2 weeks until my training official starts, but I'm trying to get myself into a pattern to run 3 days a week. I haven't been doing that since February! Not good. So for the first week or so, my knees will be tight, but that's okay - it's for a good cause.

I keep disappearing and reappearing. It's so hard to get back into logging in my food and exercise, and getting on the groups. And it shouldn't be so difficult. I know once I make that commitment to do those things, it'll be easier to get this weight off and get my workouts in. I guess this is as good of a time to start as any. Tomorrow is my first day off where I'm home in quite some time, and I'm looking forward to getting up early to get a run in before enjoying the rest of the day.

Amy - 48 degrees? That would be nice now - it's been so stinkin' out and muggy out!

Hey there, Hi there and a big hello!
So, school started today and I did the happy dance...and then I did the homework of filling out all the paperwork tonight, paid the fee's etc.

So I know most of you are still in summer mode, I now have 48 degree's and rain and I expect more of the same, it is the start of fall here. I actually got on my elliptical today. Oh boy, the batteries were dead and someone had left the machine on a high tension mode! I tried doing it for about two min. Then went scurrying around looking for batteries! Boy did I luck out with finding the 4 that I needed! Soooo I got some inside work out time.
Hope all is well with all of you!
Amy

Hi all!

I'm trying to keep on sparking and keep the fire going!! It's been a bit of a challenge with the kids home and work. Getting to the gym is harder. On the bright side...I've been going on some bike rides with my daughter. They're not long ones, but still get the blood flowing!! It all adds up, right?

I'm trying to increase my fruits & veggies lately. Fiber is good and keeps me fuller!!

Spark on!!

Jem

Good morning. How are you doing on your 'health journey? I'm going to make this an exercise 'adventure' day. I'll work on dancing jazz, and then I'll go hike the hill behind my house.
Have a pleasant day.

How's everyone doing? It's been a tough week trying to get in my running. I'm great about doing weights, and I do them every other day. But getting the motivation to either go to the gym or run outside - that's another story.

But, I just signed up for the Tinker Bell 1/2 marathon in January, so I have to start training again.

How is everyone doing? Any big weekend plans? I had to work today - it was supposed to be my day off, but too much is going on so I switched it. So that means I couldn't run this morning - I'll go after work instead. It's really nice out, not too hot, so I can run outside. Tomorrow we're doing touristy stuff in DC - some of the museums. Sunday I get to scrapbook. And in my spare time, clean house, declutter, get in 1 run and 1 weight workout.

Hi all ~ it's been a long time since I've been here - probably over a year now, but I'm trying to get back into this. I figured the beginning of the month was a good time to start. I'm training for a 1/2 marathon in January, and hope that will help to shed some pounds.

What a wonderful day! I have really weird hours. It was really hot here yesterday, but I hiked up and around a hill for a couple hours anyway. Whew! It's going to be in the 90's for the week. I like that hill hiking. I'm going to do it again today.
Does anyone care to share what they are doing to Spark today?

Hello & Good night!

I am super tired after working today. I work 2-3 days a week with senior citizens. Some days I am spent. I know you all know how that can be. Anyhow, I really need to be careful when I am tired...too much mindless eating!!!

Amy, I can't believe it's been a year! I hope Mother's day wasn't too hard for you. My mom passed away 13 years ago May 31st and i still miss her. Those of you who still have your moms...hug them and appreciate them. They are special and I do take comfort that my mom's love is always with me...I have a magnet that says "A Mother's love lasts forever"

Well, it is late...and I need to get more sleep. I think that will help my eating tomorrow. I notice that if I'm rested up I do a lot better!!

GO TEAM!!!!!!!! Jem/Janine

Hi there team!

What's happening with everyone?? Sorry, i haven't posted more. It's a balancing act, sometimes, working, sparking, family, sparking, gym, etc, etc.

I am doing well, despite falling off the sparking wagon at times...lol!

WE CAN DO THIS!!

I do and say goofy things all the time, just in my day to day activities. I don't really think about what others may think about it ,or care, for that matter. Do whatever you wanna do when you have some time do do whatever you want. At this point, I have a lot of that time and think it's really cool..most of my other time i spend at the gym trying to look like the 27 year old that I feel like

Okay, in the past I have said or done some really goofy things. Tonight, a really rare treat, husband off doing driving duty with our 12 soon to be 13 year old daughter, I have 2 hours alone! What in the heck should I do? CD in the player, turn it up, way up to hear it in the master bath! Cause I want to shave! What a treat. I know you were thinking naughty. Well I was listening to Barenaked ladies!
Enjoy some things in life!

Happy Monday to you!
How is the new year treating you?
I know I have retreated to the indoors, although the sun has been out the past few weeks it has been bone chilling cold out. Buurrrr. Last Tuesday it was about 21 degrees and I did jump on it and went for a hour walk along the bay.
What have you been up to?

My name is Amy
I live in Alaska
I have two children...man 21 and girl 12, yep it's true, 9 years apart. seems more to me!
I was recently stunned (may) that my son could be offered beer at a party and I had no say in the matter. (I made a step or two forward, then tripped myself) LOL
Now how about you?

Good Morning!

Yes, I saw the poll about hiding wrappers and food. lol! That's funny, but true sometimes. Hopefully, we don't get into too much sneaking around.

Amy, a snow day in Alaska? It must have been pretty bad. So, your daughter has Spring Break next week? My neice in Oregon has Spring Break next week, too. Our kids have the week after Easter.

I confess, I have been eating Girl Scout cookies. My daughter has been selling them and I caved. Well, at least I am trying to limit them. Yikes!

Keep in touch Sparklers!

Good Morning to you all!
We had a school snow day yesterday. In all my years here in Alaska,we have had flood days or volcano days but not a snow day!
Did you read the spark people email about being a sneak? That's me all right! I sneak alot of excise in my day. Today I will not sneak...to much snow to shovel LOL!
I am home till Thursday and then off to our cabin for spring break week.
Hope you are all doing well.

Hi there!

Amy, good to see you chatting! I know about the stress eating, since I have a history of that. Hang in there with your mom! It's great you can help out and you won't ever regret that.

I am doing pretty good, but still trying to get off my plateau. Is it age??? I can try harder!!!

Take care and keep in touch!!

Hi Ladies!
Wow, everyone is getting slammed with weather.
Hope all is well with you and your family.
I am so a stress eater. Really trying not to do that but it is hard.
I have been home this week but go back to Mom's in the morning for a week. One day at a time and one step after another. Just keep plugging along!

Hi there!

So, we're already half way through February...wow, where does time go!! I haven't been doing the "extras" on Sparks. So, here I am. We're all busy, I know.

Let us know what's happening in your life and how the Sparking is going!

I am trying to tweak my work outs and so I'll see if that helps jump start my progress.

Hi everyone,
Today is week three since my Mom's diagnosiss.
I am going homer in the morning for awhile. All the visitors have come and gone and my sister and I have set up the house so it will be easier for my step dad to manage on his own. She is fine for now just tired and we do not allow her to use and sharp tools or cook. She getting platlets twice a week so that helps with the fear of here bleeding out from a cut, but an infection of any kind is just as deadly.
So now they can have some alone time and I can come over whenever they need me to. My sister is leaving Sat. She may or may not be able to come back but she had quality time as well.
Hope all is well with you and hope to talk with you soon!

Jem, thank you!

Amy

Hi there!

Amy, I'm sorry about your mom. It's hard, I've been through it. My mom passed away from lung cancer 12 years ago. Treatment, usually just buys some time. Hang in there! Well, there's not too many active participants on our team. I feel better knowing there's someone else out there rooting for the team.

Take care!

Jem

Hi
I have been at the Hospital with my Mother since New Years day. She has cancer and has opted out of any treatment and we are looking a 3wks to 3 months. We are now at her house and every thing is just so sad. I wont be around much.
Just wanted to let you know.
Jem...really you should look into a new co-team leader.

Hey there!

Well, I am feeling more motivated. We watched some home videos from this past year. I felt like I looked heavier then I thought I was. I have been stuck on a plateau for a while. Well, I need to make some bigger changes to make the difference. So, I am going to focus on more water, more fruits and veggies, and less snacking. If I track my food more it will make me more accountable. I track breakfast and often don't track the rest of the day.

Sparking on and on!!!! Jem

Hi there!

Yes, those goodies do us in don't they. I'm up a pound, but really need to take control and lose more!! I am going to try to track my food better and exercise more. It's slow going for me.

We were going to go to friends for New Years until my son fell on his skateboard. We have an appt. this afternoon to get it checked out. H has a paper route I'll have t help him with and my husband has to work. So, we will stay home and watch movies. Well, I better get ready for the appt.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Hi everyone!

I hope all of you did better then I this year.
I stepped on the scale,knowing it was going to be bad. Its just the number that stung 150# It's only 3# up but that 150 just kills me!Today is not my weigh in day so I know that number will go away by Sat. I like my own logic thankyou very much!LOL

So christmas tree is down all the needles vacumed up and decoration stowed away,but the left overs linger as do the cookies and candies my in-laws send every year....ugh I have got to take control again and not eat it!

Anything special for the New Years eve?

Take care and Happy New years!
Amy

Hi there and Merry Christmas!

Sorry, I haven't been keeping up with the chit-chat. Amy, I'm glad your Aunt is fine. My Aunt has had breast cancer with a mastectomy, also. Her daughter was diagnosed (in her 50's) and had a double mastectomy to not take any chances. Scarey! I wonder if all the processed foods have increased the Cancer risk.

I will be busy cleaning my house to get ready for Christmas Eve. We are having two of my sisters, their husband, and a neice and nephew over. My daughter is in a children's Christmas muiscal at church. They will come to that and then come over for some food and merriment. A little wine, too! One of my sisters is a wine connouiser (spelling?) and she usually brings the wine.

What are your plans Amy and anyone else who reads this?

Enjoy! Jem

HI Jem!
I have been busy with my daughters b'ball! Dinner for three nights a week are a bust.
Has everyone made plans or x-mas?
Sports child is new to me. I am glad she is doing it and I just need to re-adjust for meals.
I hope all of you are watching yourselves. I have given myself a 3lb watch. So far 2lb is the thing to watch. Watch is what I am saying. Watch your self and remember what it is that you want for yourself! Have fun and remember to balance your act!
