Good morning BINGHAMTONIANS!

Another BEAUTIFUL sunrise again today...just spectacular! And earlier too...woo hoo!

So far it looks like Sat. @ 3 pm works best, but I'd really like to hear from others regarding ALL three factors: WHERE, DAY OF WEEK and TIME.

I only mentioned Denny's however have no special investment in this. I am WIDE OPEN to ideas...especially as our first meeting is liable to be small, it hardly matters WHERE, but would love to get this off the ground!

Still waiting for my SparkPeople T-Shirts...the blue one and the tangerine...

DDORN, I have a shirt (as you can see); it's my 2nd Sparkpeople shirt..and I bought the page-a-day desk calendar for myself for Christmas. It's on my desk at work.....along with a few dog calendars. I love the pictures..what can I say?

Meeting sounds great...week days are usually not good for me and it would depend on the weekend. I've met other local sparkers in the past and it was fun. We met on a Saturday for lunch. I'm not a huge Denny's food fan myself, but I'll keep checking here to see if I can make it when something is set. Even if I just have a coffee. Thanks!

I can do it!!

I'm leaning toward Sat. afternoon, but either works for me...how about others? What works for everyone?

Sounds Great! I would love to meet some fellow "sparkies". My schedule is very flexible but I would need a good deal of notice. I love Denny's, but I have to admit I'm not the best at making healthy choices, I would need to be held accountable by my peers. By the way...I lost 2 more pounds this week. emoticon

sounds good I am sure we can find the "right" food anywhere.

I am a last minute type person. It all depends on how my parents are doing that day

Okay, I'll toss this idea out there, as I know other groups who have regular gatherings at this restaurant, so I'd imagine they would be open to US possibly having regular gatherings at their establishment.

Denny's, Upper Front St. Binghamton...Northgate Plaza...? Wonderfully healthy cuisine...nah! But we Sparkies can tease out some relatively healthy choices there, I'm sure.

What do folks think? I'm VERY open to ideas, suggestions...!

My life is often last minute for everything because I care for my elderly parents but I would love to get together.

I finally bit the bullet and splurged by buying some SparkPeople stuff...couple of t-shirts and a stainless steel water bottle. Hope they get here by Jan. 16th! I'll still enjoy them whenever they come... :-)

Some of our local restaurants are friendly to the idea of having groups get together at their establishments...does anyone think this might be something we could choose to do during the winter time? In better weather I like the idea of being outdoors at one of our local super parks!

Hey, with all the local hoopla about drilling for natural gas I would urge folks to take a look at my latest blog:

Flow: For Love of Water

Would like to hear what people think.

Must run...the crazy / busies continue...!

I would love to meet some of you...if something were organized I would do my best to come. There are actually some people who I have told about the group who might actually follow through if they had actual faces to put to the website.

How about catching up with each other at a local park, say Otsiningo, maybe bring a yummy healthy dish to pass, head out on a walk? There was an organized bike ride fundraiser or some such last year that I passed on, but would like to join in if / when it comes around...a contingent of SPARKIES would be impressive, no? :-)

A spark rally sounds like it could be fun, but might be tough to pull something together so quick unless it were a pretty casual "drop in" kind of thing... but I'm not great at organizing these things - if someone has any ideas, I'll try to make it!

Another thought - if we wanted to do an outdoor, active sort of get together, sometime April or later might be better unless we plan a ski trip or something like that emoticon

The last of the new year events are finished on my end as well. Over all I think I did pretty good...only gained a pound which I have since lost. And, thanks to the motivation of so many on this board, I have been faithful to exercise. Maybe by the time next year rolls around there will be a little less of me to love. emoticon

Well, the last of the goodies are gone! Made it through New Year's without indulging as I had during Christmas. I felt a bit guilty bringing the leftover goodies to work and tempting all my co-workers. Had thought of dropping them off at the landfill's hazardous waste disposal...but for some reason I think they might have NOT considered this "radioactive" stuff hazardous! Go figure! :-)

Hey have people seen the info about the upcoming Show Your SPARK Day on January 16th...? There's some info about it at this url:

www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivat

n_articles.asp?id=1248


One of the ideas that piqued my curiousity was Spark Rallies. Apparently they are catching on and being held all across the country! Do we think we could possibly organize such a thing by Jan. 16th? If not, we could still hold one any other time of year.

Here is more information about Spark Rallies:

n_articles.asp?id=1229


What do folks think? Can we RALLY ourselves to SHOW OUR SPARK?!?!
