Lyn, hope it gets resolved. We hate to lose you!

I've been up since 2am. I jumped out of bed for some reason. The dogs were all up and roaming. I let the border collie out. Coyotes? I didn't want the others out til she came back. I was coming out of the bathroom and catch one of the older, should-know-better, dogs peeing on my husbands trunk. I ended up letting the other 3 out and none have come back. I may have to get hubby up if they don't get back soon.

Hopefully today I will get back on track eating. I was ok except for the cookies this weekend.

Good morning!

Lyn - did you try signing in to SP from a different computer? If so, were the pages still wonky?

Just a short hello today. I'm taking a quick break at work and need to get back to it.

I hope everybody's doing great! Hugs!

I didn't mean Support, I meant the message board where other SP members talk about quirks with the site. Sometimes other users are more helpful than the IT dept!

I have tried tech support. No help there. I don't want to leave. I can't read these pages!! It took me 12 minutes just to answer this post!

Very strange! Other than SP support, you could search the technical message board and see if anyone else reported the same problem. I haven't heard of anyone se having that probkem, which is why I thought it might be your computer, not the website. Anyway if you want to leave I won't stop you, just wish you could find a technical solution!

No other web site does this. Yes, I ask tech support, they just told me to use another browser....I did and it didn't work. I tried opera, chrome and internet explorer.

Do any other websites do that? It might be the screen resolution.

I haven't had any problems with the new layout, dune things are at up differently but they mostly seemed like good changes and everything displays correctly.

Did you ask in the Technical section of Message Boards?

I have tried different browsers, it's the same thing. That's why my son said it has to be this site.
I really hate to leave, I love this team, learned a lot about new and old britcoms. I'm going to miss you all soooooo much!!!

Checking different browsers is a great idea, MAGNOLIA416. I have software at work that works fine in Firefox but doesn't play well with the other browsers, especially Internet Explorer. My first question to people who call up with problems (well, my second question, after "Did you try turning it off and then turning it back on again?" LOL) is to ask what browser they're using. Lyn, have you tried different browsers?

Not that you should have to. It sounds like SP's latest software update isn't playing well with whatever browser you're using.

At any rate, we'll sure miss you on here, Lyn! Wishing you success in all your future endeavors!

Hugs!
Leanna

Good afternoon

I will be closing my account June 30th. This site is so confusing plus I have the distorted pages to contend with.

I love those posts of fb about wine. I have a lot of them!! :)

Have a great day!! emoticon

The SP tech team sounds even less helpful than Moss and Roy. "Did you try turning it off and turning it back on again?"

emoticon

This goes for everyone on our team - I'm on FB, Google+, and also have my website, leannawidgren.com, so if you do decide to jump the SP ship but still keep in touch, you can find me there.

OK...back to my writing retreat. So far, I've spent nearly four hours modernizing and reworking my entire resume, so that's something! And, I cleaned up my FB timeline of anything a potential employer might find questionable. There wasn't anything to remove, really, except an odd post about wine. Even though I don't in reality drink it very often, I'd hate for someone to get the impression that I'm a wino through my FB funnies.

I hope you all have an excellent, productive, healthy day! Hugs!

Good morning,

Leanna - yes all activity counts!!

I got a response from the tech people here. They told me to use a different browser, that no one else has complained. I used a different one and the problem still exists. I don't use spark much anymore, just to check in with the team a lead. I don't even care anymore if I get points or not. I just don't like the site anymore. I will give you warning when I do close my account. I want to keep in touch!!

Getting ready to go to curves. Another hot one here. I guess summer is here!!

Hello everybody!

Gardening counts! I say all physical activity counts! I think, technically, the only thing that doesn't count is sleeping and jumping to conclusions. Everything else is fair game!

Lyn, sorry to hear you're frustrated with the site. I haven't noticed much since their last big update but I don't track so there could be changes there that I haven't seen. Mostly, I just pop into SP to say hi to my favorite team (BCL!) and a few people and that's it. I'm in a down turn of the pendulum so have really been taking it easy on myself and not pushing myself extra hard.

If SP is the only page that is causing you problems, you might consider writing to their tech help before you cancel your account. They may have settings recommendations for you or another way to help. We'd hate to see you go. I'd miss you for sure!

OK...off to do some reading and then hit the sack. I'm house sitting so have my parents' house all to myself until Friday morning (I even took tomorrow off work). So, I've got a "writing retreat" planned. So needed!

Catch up with you all again soon! Hugs!!

Good afternoon!

So sorry I have not been on. I'm having a problem with Sparkpeople. My page and these forums have been distorted for the past few weeks and it's getting annoying!! I'm ready to close my account. My son says its the web site, not our computer. GGGRR!R!!

Summer is going fast!! Hope everyone is enjoying it!! I know I am!!! emoticon

Bri - My husband used to have a hammock, he loved it!! He would lounge in it when he would bbq. He wore it out!!

Hi Everyone! Happy Father's Day! I heard this being spoken to all kinds of folks today, male and female. It was strange to hear one day saying it to a lady he knew while shopping at the supermarket.

I have been throwing lots of energy into gardening. My arms are so sore I can't lift them up. It is important to remember that physical activity is exercise and it is important to stretch after. I guess I forgot shoveling and tilling by hand. Too bad. Not just the soreness, but it's said you lose about 30% of the bene if you don't stretch after.

I got hubby a hammock for father's day. He's not feeling well and is napping after meds. Had I thought ahead I'd have had his hammock set up so he could nap in the garden.

Thanks for listening! (((hugs)))

It's another lazy day. I'm feeling that exam from yesterday. That guy pulled on me and manipulated.

I stuck the pot of flowers into the container (not planting) and caught a hen picking at the leaves! That explains why my pepper plant is nothing but a stem.

What possessed me to do laundry today I don't know. I'll have to dry it indoors. It drizzles off and on so it doesn't make sense to let the fresh air dry it.

Have a wonderful day! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm out in la la land. I had a chiro appnt this morning and it wiped me out. Funny thing. I waited quite a while to get season 8 of "as Time Goes By". Waiting for me was season 9! Now I can just sit back and relax.

I did get plants to get into the ground, but between the lethargy and an approaching storm I will hold off planting til morning. I feel like I've done duty! (army speak)

Y'all enjoy the rest of your day. emoticon

Hey everybody!

Saddened to hear of the death of Rik Mayall, who you may remember from The Young Ones or as Lord Flasheart in Blackadder. He was such a comic talent and will be missed! The BBC wrote a nice article, link attached.

I hope you have a wonderful day! Beautiful and sunny here (for now!). Hugs!

Lyn, glad everything turned out ok. Stressful stuff in the meanwhile.

I was writing of something that happened to me yesterday but turned it into a blog!

I got home yesterday and it got chilly and dark. There is nothing like getting to relax on a day like that with good shows on. What a smile that came to my face when I found season 8 of "As Time Goes By" in the mailbox! I had a wonderful afternoon watching. (hubby was away at army)

Sans going out in the morning, today should be similar. Hope you all can enjoy the same peace.

Hello!

Lyn, glad to hear that your hubby's cancer stuff is all well. Sorry to hear about your dad, though! Sometimes it's hard for us all to slow down and remember we're not as youthful as before. We are all prone to overdoing it.

Not much going on here today. Writing, working in the garden, walking and playing with Moose. Incidentally, he still thinks he's a young pup, too. (And there's a good chance he thinks he's human, as well!).

I hope everybody's having a great Saturday and that Sunday is good too! Hugs!
Leanna

Good morning,

Had a busy Friday yesterday. I went to my husband cancer doctor appointment with him, all is good there. While there, my mom called me on my cell, my dad was admitted in the hospital for chest pains. He went through all sort of test, nothing was found. Come to find out he had a pulled muscle in his chest. My dad will be 80 in September, but he thinks his in his 30 and can do anything!! That is so hard for him to understand!! He's coming home today. I'm going with my mom to pick him up.

So, another busy day!!

Hope you hall have an amazing day! emoticon

Hey everybody!

Bri, could be stress causing the cold sore. It sounds like you've been stressed to the max with a new puppy, new meds, and fires. Just try to take it easy and get better!

I've been carpooling with Mike this week so my exercise schedule has been wacky. Tomorrow I'll be marooned at home, which I'm looking forward to. I can work out, write, and do all the things I need to do without feeling like I have to go run errands.

I wish you all a very happy Friday and a great start to your weekend!

Hi Team.

Fire near my property yesterday. I was a mess. Trying to relax today because the bp went up so high.

New meds to adjust to. Also getting a letter from the doc and won't be going to Curves for awhile. I'm just wasting $ by only going now and then.

That's the scoop!

Just trying to stay awake this afternoon. I need to take some meds but they make me so drowsy.

I have a cold sore. I haven't had one in so long. I don't know why all of a sudden. Trying to leave it alone.

The new puppy is keeping me plenty busy. He seems intelligent. I can't seems to catch him before an accident. He has a favorite spot in the middle of the kitchen floor. At least he doesn't go on the carpet like that other rescue dog.

Good morning!

I'd never thought of having a BBQ for a wedding feast, but I did attend one wedding where the food was pizza. Just pizza. No, wait, pizza and bread sticks! And the family was a group of die-hard meat eaters who didn't consider the vegetarians in the family, so I didn't eat any. I got a lot of "can't you just pick it off?" comments from people who don't understand that, no, you can't just pick off pepperoni and make the pizza magically vegetarian. It's OK. It was better for my waistline that I didn't indulge.

Planting the garden today so I'd better get to it before it gets too hot.

I hope you have a terrific Sunday and a good start to your week!

Good morning!!

Hello Leanna!! So good to hear from you!!

We went to a wedding reception last night. My nephew got married in Mexico April 30. Had a good time but the food was very different. The had pulled pork, baked beans, slaw, brats, potato salad and lots of desserts. The problem was all the food was spicy and the desserts were very soft and melted. It was very hot and humid yesterday. The wine was good!! LOL!!
Thank heaves I ate a sandwich before I left. I could not eat anything on my plate last night.

Hope you have a wonderful and relaxing Sunday!! emoticon

Hello, and happy Weekend to everybody!

Not much going on this weekend - still playing catch-up from my trip last weekend and the odd Internet outage that struck our area for nearly two days. Funny how we've all become so dependent on the Internet (although I still think it's kind of fun when it goes out - it reminds me of life before the Internet!).

I overindulged last weekend and am recovering slowly. I've been exercising and avoiding wheat and sugar, which really makes me feel so much better that I always wonder why I don't do this all the time.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I've missed checking in with you all! Hugs!

Good morning!!

We made 250 hot dogs on a bun yesterday and wrapped them in foil. Today it's a deli sandwich. 250 again!!

The head cook was in a fowl mood yesterday, I hope today is better, but I doubt it. I'm so glad I will be done from there next year!!

I will be late checking in tomorrow. I'm going to work at 6am, to help clean and close the kitchen. Then we have the end of the year ice cream social (which I'm going to do my best NOT to eat!!!)

Have a great day my friends!! emoticon

Congratulations, Lyn! Now you can enjoy the summer off with that to look forward to! Woo!

Welcome, Snowmaiden!

Off to Seattle for a few days so I won't be online much. I hope everybody has a great weekend and, if you're in the US, a great holiday!

I also meant to say, Lyn, that I like the idea of a June challenge. I was thinking of challenging myself to keep improving with my exercise (go longer, or faster, for example). Perhaps we could do some type of challenge where we, personally, task ourselves with improving something each day, week, or session. Someone with consistency problems might challenge themselves to improve consistency by doing something X number of times per week. Or those of us that do exercise regularly could challenge ourselves to go beyond our previously set limits (which often are plateau-shaped!).

Just some ideas. Thoughts?

Hello! Thanks for the encouragement, Lyn!

I'm actually back on the wagon, too, of sorts. I've started running on the treadmill again and that has done WONDERS for me physically and mentally. Sorry for the rant the other day - but thank you for indulging me!

Good to hear you're on track and losing weight! YAY!!

Happy weekend to everybody!

Good morning,

I'm sorry you are both feeling down. I too gained this weekend. I ate pretty good, it was the wine (saw my MIL on Saturday emoticon )

Would you like some kind of a challenge in June? It can be anything, Let's all think on it.

It's still cool here, in the 50's and rainy.

Hope you lovely ladies have a wonderful day!! Remember, emoticon

Good morning, everybody!

Bri - big hugs to you! I know very well that feeling of being stuck and the frustration of trying very hard and seeing poor results. Despite my efforts, I seem to only gain or lose-lose-lose all week and then gain it all back and more on the weekend. That's the really frustrating part. Do I need duct tape on my mouth on the weekends? How is it that I can gain the equivalent of eating two full packages of pure butter in one day?! There is something wrong with this picture!

Anyway...so, I am frustrated, too. It seems my metabolism just tanked in the past couple of years, despite daily exercise and healthy food. I'm not sure of the answer. I'm re-reading Martha Beck's Four-Day Win book about achieving "thinner peace." I feel like I'm constantly at war with my weight and am dangerously close to raising the white flag and surrendering to carelessness. It really wears you down. Hopefully, I won't just roll over and accept it!

Wow, so how's that for negativity?! Sorry, guys! Just venting a little.

I hope everybody gets out there today and does something special and healthy for themselves! Or just watch a British comedy...and - speaking of butter - maybe try wrapping your brain around Alice Tinker's "I can't believe the stuff that is not I Can't Believe It's Not Butter is not I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. And I can't believe that both I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and the stuff that I can't believe is not I Can't Believe It's Not Butter are both, in fact, not butter."

Ladies, we're slipping. That or we're overly busy. In my case it's me slipping.

My dd is doing a skinny fiber plan. It's a 90 day challenge. I already get my fiber - when I'm diligent, but I do want to participate in the challenge. I got through day one yesterday only doing some of the exercises. I have to work into some of them.

This will sound negative, but I just feel stuck. Like these last 20, make that 25, pound (I gained back some) are just how I am. My brain tells me just look at the success stories yet I can't seem to accept that for myself.

Netflix surprised me with an extra disc yesterday - Salsa dancing! Maybe that will pep me up. That exercise is fun. Raking and cleaning property only to have the winds come and bring it all back only worse, is not.

Let's encourage each other. I sure could use some. (((gentle hugs)))

Good morning.

Bri - Please don't feel bad. I didn't know she passed either and it was her Birthday. I sent goodies and Birthday messages, then I read her page and realized she passed. I felt horrible.
I wish the old huddles were back. I don't like it when they change stuff. At least let us check it out first and vote!!!!
I didn't realize Spark radio was gone. I like to listen to that once in a while.
I love good ole Hyacinth. I love her on the horse!! LOL!!

Hope every one had a nice Mother's Day. My dh and I went camping. I ate way too much. My dh is a great cook!!

Have a great day and stay on track!! emoticon

I feel bad answering that huddle. Ididn't know Train had passed.

My huddles aren't showing up at all today. I guess they are working at getting the bugs out of the new formats. And speaking of changes, what happened to spark radio? I used to listen to that while doing my housework.

I watched an episode of Keeping Up Appearances today. The one where they get a flat in a country mansion. Cracked me up. I hadn't seen that one in some time.

Good to hear from you both! A friend recommended The Hacker's Diet. I read it last night and while it is WAY TOO TECHNICAL for me, I gleaned that as we lose weight our pounds will go up and dowm, but an overall down trend. In the past I've been a slave to the scale and given up when I've followed my plan and gained a couple of pounds.

For now I'm eating less - and exercising. Logging on to here really does keep me motivated.

Tonight I'm cleaning out my closet and watching Are You Being Served - my first intro into British comedy - 30 years ago!!! I used to watch it on PBS.

Good morning,

Callmecordelia - First of all, congrats on exercising and logging it!! It will be second nature to you soon!! I found out fad diet plans don't work well for me. I can't do low carb I get constipated. I've tried weight watchers, counting calories, you name it. The counting calories did help me lose. I joined Curves in March and that has really helped me!! I have lost 15 pounds in a month and a half. It is a bit expensive, so if I were you, I'd try tracking your meals here on spark. It does work if you stick to it!!

Not much going on today, housework and laundry, lots of laundry!!

Have a nice and relaxing Sunday everyone!! emoticon

I just did the doc oz rapid weight loss diet. I did 10 of the 14 days and it helped me so much. It was a little rough days 3 & 4 for me - every plan I've ever tried is. However, no carb or sweet cravings.

I stopped early because I want to get back onto the Fast Metabolism Diet for 28 days. That will bring me just past Memorial Day. Then I will see from there.

I am upping my walking to 2 miles per day this week. I want to do better on my time. 18 1/2 minute miles need to eventually be 15 minute miles. dh will still do evening walks but my solo walk yesterday energized me. I may continue to do that as the mornings aren't usually windy around here and it usually is after dinner.

sorry for such a long post.

UPDATE: FMD didn't work while on meds. I gained 3 lbs in one week. Frustrated.

Hello all!

I still haven't decided what is the best plan for me. So I'm tracking my exercise for now. In the past, with either counting calories or points, I become too focused on those numbers - and less on eating healthy.low-carb works well, but not sure if that is the best to do.

I WILL decide on something. Meanwhile, I'm happy to be exercising.

Have a great weekend! You all are an encouragement!

Hello!

Welcome, CallmeCordelia! Glad to have you with us!

All is well here. I am doing a game/challenge this weekend because weekends are always a setback for me. I challenged myself to weigh on Thursday and then not to gain by Monday. I have been doing great all week, was on track and had lost nearly two pounds by Wednesday's weigh-in. But then Thursday, I'd mysteriously jumped back UP those same two pounds! So, I guess this challenge shouldn't be all that hard if I just stick to my plan. I've already gotten rid of one of those pounds (silly water weight). If I were a true glutton for punishment, I'd make myself use Wednesday's weight for my game!

OK...off to run errands and then...more errands! I hope everybody has a happy Friday!

Hi All,

New to Sparkpeople - just trying to figure it all out! What I DO know is that I love British television!!

Just introduced my step-mom to dear Hyacinth 'Bouquet' last week! I also watch Vicar of Dibley, Miranda, Yes Minister, Mr. Bean, Lark Rise, Downton Abbey, Endeavour, Rosemary & Thyme - and the list continues!

Hope to have fun!!

That is fantastic! Congratulations! emoticon emoticon Talk about motivation!

I weighed in yesterday at home and couldn't believe how much I had gained. Today I weighed again at home - down a few pounds. That was a weigh with just my nightie on. At Curves, middle of the day mind you, the scale read 162, clothes and shoes included. I prefer the Curves version! I was upset on an 8 lb gain.

Day 3/14 of my plan tomorrow. I have been very creative with the low-glycemic foods I have to work with. It's actually fun coming up with creations.

Have a sweet sleep. See y'all tomorrow. emoticon

Good evening!!

I weighed in at Curves today. I have lost 8.25 inches and 13 pounds so far. The lady that works there was amazed!!! She said keep up what I'm doing, it's working. I'm so motivated!! I got my spark back!! I would love to be in Onederland by September but that may be pushing it. But I'm gonna try!! emoticon

Hope everyone had a good day!! The weather here is beautiful! Tomorrow I'm going out with my mom, it's supposed to be in the 80's. So she should not be cold!! LOL!!

Have a nice evening!! emoticon

Ok, ladies. You can come out of hiding now! We miss you around here.

Day one of my "pampering my body". I didn't make it to Sprouts yesterday so will rely on what is already in the house. The only thing I don't have is rice protein powder. I'll have to sub soy out of necessity. Tonight my reward is a hot soak in Epsom salts and baking soda.

The soak alone gives me incentive to clean the bathroom!

Have a marvelous day everyone! Happy cooking, Lyn!

buffet lunch with the girls today. I'll choose pot roast - the healthiest entrée. The rest, well....

Tomorrow I am going to start a 14 day plan to hopefully motivate and push me to the next level. Once I get the 7 lbs off that I put on over the winter I'll be much happier with myself for achieving a goal.

Have a brilliant day!

Camping is so much fun! Glad you had a great getaway,

It is so windy today. I was hoping to do some yard clean up. I've cleaned out one kitchen cabinet so will probably tackle another if outside work is out of the question. It's amazing what gets pushed way back, especially when you can't see in without standing on a step stool.



Have a lovely day.

Many of you have a four-day holiday weekend ahead and, to you, I say HOORAY! ENJOY!

For the rest of us, I also say, HOORAY, ENJOY!

Because Life isn't about what comes our way, it's about how we meet it.

I hope you all have a wonderful Friday! Hugs to you!

Good morning!

Back at work, though still feeling under the weather a bit. I have my daytime cold medicine (which is at war with the nighttime medicine that is starting to wear off) and my box of tissues. Funny though, I came in and found my computer is all set up with a new operating system so I am having to reinstall my browser, reset all my bookmarks, and set up everything again like it's a new computer. It makes me wonder what I missed the past two days!!

I hope you have a wonderful day!!

P.S. Lyn - thanks for stopping by my blog. Have you tried the "if/then" game yet?

Yes, the water did help. I'm not so swollen.
I'm sorry you are not feeling any better. I hope you kick this stuff in the butt soon!! My allergies are still acting up a bit, I'm stuffy.

Hope you have a nice evening and get some rest. emoticon

Good morning!

Home again from work. Feeling better but still under the wheels of it. I am amazed at how this has really hammered me. It serves me right for saying how pleased I was that I had managed to escape it even though Mike's been sick for weeks. (That'll teach me!).

I hope you have an excellent Tuesday!

Hugs!

Hello!

Not loving this being sick stuff; hoping it's a swift cloud just passing by. Two full days of it, though, and it's not showing any signs of letting up. Fingers crossed the breaking point comes soon! Thanks for your get well wishes!

I feel like I pay for everything I eat, no matter what! Pizza - sodium. Bread (in any form) - puffiness and bloating. Sugar - don't get me started. I'd be doing so much better if I actually could subsist on a diet of celery and carrot sticks without going totally insane. Lyn, I hope the water and the workout takes care of your sodium/water retention and that you feel better soon!

OK...off to drink some water and get ready to crash early. I hope your day went great!

Good morning!!

Oh no Leanna!! I'm so sorry you are not feeling well. I wish you a speedy recovery. emoticon

I didn't do to good yesterday, I had some pizza. I'm paying for it now. My hands and feet are swollen from the sodium. I will drink a ton of water today!!
I'm also going to work out tonight.

I hope you are feeling better today!! Have a nice day my friend!! emoticon

Good morning!

Well, it turns out that the tickle in my throat was most likely NOT related to the coconut flour but was more likely related to the Black Plague that Mike has passed on to me. OK, maybe not the Plague (!), but definitely the same illness he's been fighting for the past week. I'm feeling pretty miserable this morning, although I feel mentally clear (that could be the allergy meds I took to fight the itchy throat, eyes, and sinuses). I will take Moose for an easy, slow walk but that's about all the exercise I have planned. While I hate being sick, I must admit that I enjoy that I can give myself permission to lay around, read, and watch TV as much as I want!

I hope you have a great day!
Hugs to all!
