Being a Christian isn't about religion. It's about a relationship with the One who made us. I'm so thankful to be one of His.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

Do not ask the Lord to guide your footstep, unless you are willing to move your feet.

God grant me the serenity to accept those I cannot change, to change the one I can,
and the wisdom to know its me.

Just wanted to touch base and say Howdy... I have been under the weather then Mom was in the hospital and I had to make a trip to West Virginia. Thank the Lord she is better now and I got to come home. We need rain but this weather is beautiful...I love spring.

Sorry to hear about your brother, but glad to hear he's doing much better. I too am enjoying the rainy (hopefully more) weather. I didn't make it to the gym this morning, due to a sleepless night. Probably gonna take a nap before the day is over. emoticon

Staying busy, but feeling pretty lazy today.

Whew! My brother is doing better. My dog is healing. My baby turns 2 next week. Things are going so much better....I need a long nap after this week, but that's perfectly okay. We are very blessed to have so much going on and to have everything turn out just fine.

I'm enjoying the rainy East Texas day. It's relaxing and sleepy....which may not be great for my work production, but it's fabulous for my need of zen :)

My quiet evening didn't quite go as planned. On my way to pick up my little guy, I got a frantic call from my mother saying that my oldest brother was rushed to the ER. Come to find out, he had a horrible reaction to a medication. He did get to go home last night. He's at the doctor right now. They may admit him, but hopefully he's making enough progress that he can stay home.
I did get to watch Biggest Loser though.....it was just much later than anticipated.
Tonight I have a meeting at church. Then I plan on just chilling out the rest of the evening.
There has been too much adventure the last few weeks for my taste. Lol

What a day, what a day! I have nearly drowned in paperwork and have dealt with a disgruntled mama....Her kid didn't turn in the work her mother thought she had. Another student is emotionally prepping for surgery next week. And another just got home from travels to South Africa (Home to him right now is in Mozambique.).

My little one has a stuffy nose and hoarse throat.

So, I am planning on making a very quick and simple dinner, spending some quiet play time with my baby and hanging out with Biggest Loser and the elliptical tonight. The husband is busy with track practice and football meetings, so this evening is going to be very quiet.

Poor puppy :(

We got to take Riley Maddox home, and she's doing really well. Dr. Taylor is shocked she lived through being so sick.

That sounds great! I have Spring break next week, so I will be available in the mornings. In fact, I will pretty much be off for BOTH jobs all week. emoticon So, my schedule will be pretty free.

We once had a rottweiler with parvo we had to take to Dr. Taylor. We had to have him put to sleep due to the cost involved to try and save him with no guarantee that it would work. Dr. Taylor is an excellent vet.

Anytime you are game for a walk on Boorman trail, just let me know. I will private message you my name and phone number...and you can call or text when you are available. I go to the gym a minimum of two days per week and that is usually Tues and Thurs mornings.

Just call or text and if I'm free we can meet down at Lois Jackson park to walk. emoticon

I have a very sick little dog :( :( But I must say that Taylor has been an INCREDIBLE vet.

We have worked with him for several years. He helped us nurse our now 3 year old lab back to health from Parvo.

The dog that is sick had a horrible infection and was rushed to surgery yesterday morning. She came out of the surgery well, but still is not eating. Prayers would be appreciated. She is the sweetest dog. We rescued her nearly 4 years ago. She is precious to our family.

Anyway, if your animals ever need care or just routine checks/shots, I would highly recommend Dr. Taylor on Gilmer Rd. in Longview. He and his staff have been great.

I've enjoyed this mild winter as well :)

Saturday school went great! The kids were well behaved, and I got to read a couple hundred pages in my book. I'm ready to sign up for it again. Lol

Yep, we haven't really experienced winter at all here in Longview. You won't get any complaints from me though...I don't like the cold weather ...that's why I moved to a warmer climate 14 years ago!! emoticon

Have a blessed weekend, friend, even if you do have to work a little. It's what we make it to be.

What a crisp morning we have, East Texas! It's going to be a beautiful day! I'm a tad jealous of my husband. He's at a track meet on this gorgeous Saturday, while I'm stuck teaching Saturday school. :( At least one of us gets to enjoy it. Lol

We're back to the rainy weather. My poor baby is bouncing off the walls in some serious need of quality outdoor time. Sunday, I let him run and jump in the mud puddles. He had a blast....I used a lot of oxy-clean in my laundry that day.

I'm thankful for the rain, but I'm ready for some good sunshine and a park date :)

I go to Ladies Workout Express at least 4 X a week. If the weather is sunny and warm outside I will walk outdoors anywhere from 3 - 5 miles. We have a lovely walking trail just down the hill from our home.

When I go to Ladies Workout Express, I usually do 60 min. on the treadmill, 40 minutes of circuit training and 30 minutes in the sauna.

I also own a stationary bike and Accu-Hoop at home that I use if all else fails.

The weather sure has been yucky the last few days. It has put quite the damper on my baby and my park regime. I'm ready to see some sunshine! But I am very thankful for the nice temps.

What are you guys doing to stay fit when it's cloudy/rainy outside?

Tough Sunday and Monday for me. Felt overwhelmed, down and ate too much.

I have done 1.2 miles on the elliptical this morning with another 5 miles scheduled. I hope you have a good Monday.

No elliptical today. I only do elliptical workeouts Mon thru Friday.

Went to the farm to work on the garden tractor a while. Then I went shopping with Donna to find supplies to built her a distaff for spinning flax. Ate lunch ate a new place called Cheeseburger Cheeseburger. We split a cheeseburger plate.

I hope everyone has a great Saturday.

Stopped by to say hello and see how you all are doing. I stay busy with my two main sparkteams and their challenges so I don't get to visit my other teams as often. I am sorry for that.

I hope everyone on this team is seeing progress toward good health. I celebrated my 6 month Sparkversary this past week and have lost 63 pounds so far on my journey.

It has been a good week and I just wrote a blog today about my journey to self-esteem.

Best wishes to you all and please stop by my Sparkpage when you get a chance.

Keep Sparkin'...it works!!!

Yep, we are enjoying the break in the heat. We actually have the heat on in the house this morning, since it was only 30ish outside this morning. Frost on the pumpkin! Very unusual where we live, and a rare occurence. Have a healthy week!

Hi ladies, I empathize with what you are both going thru. I am very thankful for good health. My situation has changed recently as well, since my bedridden mother-in-law is now with us here in our home. We also have my sweet friend, Sarah living with us as our caregiver...so the household is busy and fuller than we are accustomed to. Thanks to Sarah's presence I am still able to go to the gym each morning. I am thankful for that.

I have recently discovered that the 5k I was planning for our "meet and greet" at the Tyler Rose Festival is on a Sunday. That just will not work for me - and with the disabilities you are both experiencing we may have to postpone our team meet and greet to a later date.

Stay in touch and I will continue to keep you both in my prayers.

Hey ya'll. I haven't been around in a while. I've been in a slump but I'm trying to get out of it. I don't like being like this so I'm working on taking control.
I'm having surgery in a couple of weeks for a torn rotator cuff in my right shoulder and would appreciate your prayers. Everyone keeps telling me that this is such a tough surgery and it's really going to be painful. I hate it when people do that. It's like when you are pregnant and someone finds out and the first thing they do is tell you how horrible labor and delivery are. WHY????? No one needs to know that.
I know it will be painful. The surgeon is going to cut into my shoulder it's gonna hurt. Duh! I know physical therpay could be painful and difficult. It's okay. Nothing worthwhile comes easy. Including being healthy. If it were everyone would be healthy.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change you will get results.

I'm having a hard time staying in my calerie range I think its because I'm so bored. I do ok all day but at around seven I get super hungry and a snack won't due,I blow it. Tonight i ate a pbj. I did use double fiber bread but still to many calories. My range isless than half of what I was taking in because i was burning 2460 calories at the gym everyday. Im just so hungry!

Yes.GG this reminds me of my first summer living in Texas. I was never so exicited to see rain! Winter can't come soon enough for me Hrmph! I do so much better when I have someone pushing me.and holding me accountable. I found in the past that it does help to track your food etc.and let the others in the group have acess to your info.Of course I haven't started tracking anything as of late .I better get busy doing just that starting tomorrow.I don't know how far away you are from Linda and I but maybe once a month we could meet and do a face to face get together. Let Us know! Connie

If u look on Craig's list under free stuff u can get some real good stuff and it is a good way to share stuff that u no longer need.

FREE??? Wow, that's awesome! My daughter just got a Sissex machine at a bargain basement price off Craig's list. If you scrapbook, you will know what that is. We are having a scrapbook social next weekend and are looking forward to using it.

I shop alot at Garage Sales, Goodwill etc; I seldom buy anything that isn't on sale...Love my bargains...

That's got to make you feel a little better about things right now. I know your plate is FULL...pardon the pun.

Woo Hoo! Daily Chatter on this "barely making it" team. I'm in for the duration! Us E. Texans gotta hang in there. I'm not the original, but a transplant..Oh well...love it here.

Thanks for your vote of confidence. I'm trying to breathe new life into this team...but it ain't easy. My co-leader hasn't even been around lately, but I'm sure she will show up soon.

Right now I've been trying to figure out how to change some of the topics etc; and get Tx.Patricia off the headings...since she no longer leads this team and is the one who recommended me to take over. I may just have to message her and see if she can give me some tips.

Goatgirl, I sent you some flowers and am so sorry to hear of your accident. I pray you will be well before Oct.

Connie, Sounds like you've had a rough go as well...but have the confidence to get back up! That's all that matters. I will check in tomorrow. Thanks for posting, you two!!

When is it? I was going to the gym and doing so well then last wk i fell out the back door of my trailer. I had to call 911.I just got out of the hospital and I can early get up just to go to the rr. I know TMi sorry. I broke my knee cap, tore my maniscus, and tore the ligaments and the cartridge. We have no insurance so i cant get the needed surgery to fix it i just have to pray it heals right.my goal was to be able to walk a five k by oct. My new goal is just to be able to walk at all. I'm depressed and frustrated. When i started sp three months ago i was at 304 and I could not even walk a quarter of a mile. I started walking and now I can walk a mile and a half . Im down to 280. I joined a gym and could only do two minutes on the eliptacal now I do twenty min on the ARM bike, fifteen minutes on the elliptical,ten minutes on the treadmill, then I reed water for thirty min with leg weights,take a water Arabic class then swim laps for twenty minutes. Now I'm back where I started, sitting on the couch feeling like my goals are not antainable. I'm already gaining weight back and I feel crummy. But im praying that my knee will get better and ill be able to go back to the gym.

Hi everyone. I hope you all had a good 4th of July. Ours was nice. I got up sick Monday morning with what I thought was a bladder infection ut after going to the doc yesterday he determined it was a kidney infection. I started my antibiotics and am feeling much better already.

I don't know if you read what I wrote for the huddle today but it was a line from a song I heard this morning while getting ready and it just really stuck in my head.

Good morning. I am happy to report that I made it through yesterday without trying to eat to get rid of my tiredness.
A dear friend made me a wonderful lunch yesterday which was such a treat, then I had pizza for dinner with my husband and I didn't go overboard on that either. I had a glass of 1% milk before I went to bed because I felt kind of empty. It was a good day.
I also got plenty of rest last night and feel really good today. I hope everyone has a great day.

Grace

Good morning team members. I would like to say I'm just thrilled to death that it is Monday and a new work week but it is a sin to lie. I'd really rather be at home in my bed asleep right now. I stayed up too late to finish a book and then the book had a lousy ending. Go figure. I should have put the book down and went to bed and got my rest.
I don't know about you all but being really tired is an eating trigger for me. So, I am asking for help today. I don't want to try and wake myself up with food because I know I will only feel more tired if I overeat.
I need to get a some paperwork done and tidy my desk. Everyone have a great morning.

Good morning fellow team members. I have been struggling to stay on a program here lately. I have one good day and two bad days. My biggest challenges are 1. lack of consistent planning 2. emotional eating. I know eating stuff I'm not hungry for doesn't help me feel better and it certainly doesn't solve anything but I do it anyway.
I'm reading The Spark again but very slowly this time and really trying to absorb what I read and then hopefully put it into practice. Last night I was reading about Spark streaks and this is what I have decided. My streak is going to be consistently tracking everything I eat for 30 days. I'm tracking points because I have chosen to follow the WW plan but whether I track here on SP or on WW as long as I'm tracking consistently I will accomplish my streak.
I hope you all have a great day.

Hello everyone! How is your week so far??
I finished up Week 2 of Spark's summer bootcamp yesterday, onto week 3 today! I have to add the goal of 5 fruits or veggies everyday. This one is always so difficult for me! But I stocked up on apples, bananas, frozen mixed berries, baby carrots, and spinach at the store today. Oh, I also got a lot of those Steamables... the frozen veggies that you just throw into the microwave to steam right in the bag! I love those! I have such a hard time keeping fresh veggies on hand, so this makes it a lot easier. And I'm getting to where I don't really like canned veggies anymore! That's good, I think!!

What are you guys up to today???

Good morning. I'm back from vacation and ready to get busy. I watched Extreme Makeover weight loss edition last night and it was very interesting. The guy made several references to food as his comfort and I could so totally relate to that. I've consumed a lot of food to 'comfort' myself but the only thing it gave me was a big behind, bad knees, loads of guilt poor self esteem and a boat load of regrets.

I was at a family reunion in Georgia over the weekend and there were so many of my relatives who are as big as me or bigger and it made me sad. Type II diabetes is rampant in our family and we just lost a cousin a couple of weeks ago who would have been 50 this summer. He died of complications of diabetes and COPD and weighed well over 400 pounds.
He really died from lack of self love and care. I don't want to do that.

Back to work. I have tons of catching up to do which is the only downside of going on vacation.

i didn't finish what I was saying about the pictures. The reason I was disgusted with myself is that I looked terrible. I felt really good about the clothes I was wearing until I looked at the pics and those really need to be my last 'big girl' pics. I told my sister those were going to be my 'before' pics for my new start.

Hey ya'll. I hope everyone is doing well. I am on vacation and typing this from my hotel room. We have been traveling and I've made a few good food choices but for the most part I've not been real good.Yesterday I was up on a mountain with my sister and my best friend and we were taking pictures and I was thoroughly disgusted with myself.
Tomorrow is our family reunion and there will probably be few good choices as I come from a large family of good Southern cooks. We all specialize in comfort food and we all have weight problems. No surprise.
When I get back home I am going to get seriously on track and start counting points again and going to thge gym I belong to. I haven't been in several months because I have been suffering [seriously] with a shoulder problem. I won't be able to use an of the machines that require you to use your arms but I can use the cycles, ellipticals and treadmills. I have a condition called impingement syndrome in my shoulder and it is very painful but I know that I cannot use that as an excuse not to exercise the rest of my body.

Goatgirl, don't be hard on yourself. Just start over and make all the good choices you can. You can do this.

Good morning ya'll! Did anyone else get some much needed rain last night. It rained at our place for a solid 45 minutes. It was a beautiful thing.

The weekend was good. I did get some exercise and thought for sure it was going to kill me. LOL We had gone to look at our son's property and it is quite hilly. We had walked down to the bottoms to see the creek and on the way back up I had to have a walking stick for each hand and I used them like ski poles to pull myself up the hill. My husband joked we could go back down and do it again and I told him he would be burying me if we did.

I tried to get online at home so I could log in and get my sparkpoints but we have dialup [yuk!] and it just doesn't cooperate. Well folks, it is time to get to work. I really hope that someone joins me on here. The journey is so much more interesting when you have someone to make it with.

Well, I'm back again. Looks like I was the only one posting anything yesterday. We need to get some excitement stirred up on here. I don't like talking to myself. It is bad enough I do it at home and now I'm doing it on the internet. Come on folks. We North East Texans can talk the ears off a jack rabbit so let's get on here and chat it up by encouraging each other.

Helloooo, is there anybody out there?

We had a nice Memorial Day with our youngest daughter and her family. I'm getting ready to go on vacation next week with my sister. Girl trip!! Going to see my BFF in AL and then on to GA for a family reunion.

I was reading the 25 Ways to Get Back on Track article this morning and getting back on track is what I need to do. I've misplaced my motivation and cannot seem to find it. At the beginning of the year I was on track more than not and I was getting some exercise on a regular basis. Then I started having really bad shoulder problems and the exercise stopped. I realize I could have walked or rode a bike and it wouldn't have affected my shoulder but it all came to a screeching halt. I saw the doc about the shoulder, got a cortisone shot and it has improved but I still haven't started exercising again. I was going to weight watchers but have stopped that too. I felt like I was spinning my wheels and wasting my money.

I could really use a friendly push in the right direction and some encouragement. I know that I am responsible for any success I have but it would be nice not to feel like I'm doing this all alone.
