I want pictures!!!!! Of Everyone!

I loved being Minnie Mouse - as an adult.

I haven't planned to dress up tonight, but I sure plan on having some deeeelicious eats too. And desserts too - just no candy.

So glad you're not bailing water, or feeling your way around in the dark with no heat Tricia - but that cold sounds brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

emoticon emoticon Not me, we are having Halloween Chili party today at the office! I plan to eats lots of chili. I made candy corn cakes, I plan to eat a little one. My girls are Minnie Mouse today, yes both of them, couldn't talk them out of being copy cats.

Sandy did no damage to my neighborhood, but man is it cold! Felt like the middle of winter the last couple of days. I hear it is going to be a cold winter this year. I crave soup, stew and hot chocolate!

Happy Halloween!!!!

Taking a deep breath......

Happy Halloween Everyone! Who are you going to be tonight? I'm going to be a virtuous goodie goodie. Yup! No candy for me. Just doesn't fit in my game plan to be healthier - and slimmer - by January 2nd.

But I still plan to have lots of fun. We've got a pumpkin to carve, candy to hands out and loads of costumes to admire in this sweet neighborhood.

Have fun everyone!

Oh Tricia! You're in our thoughts! And everyone else in the path of the storm.

It's even kicking up the wind out here in Illinois! But nothing dramatic like you're going through.

Great day to stay home, cuddle, snuggle and breathe!

Hey guys, Sandy is the coldest hurricane I've ever been through. No damage so far and if I didn't know better I would say it was just a cold wet day. I'm not sure what will happen in the night but do far we are very fortunate. Thanks everyone for thinking of us. I will be thinking of the folks further east and north. They will get the brunt of this one.

Hope everyone had a great day!

Taking a deep breath......

Happy Sunday everyone! Still sunny in my neighborhood. The hurricane is supposed to really start affecting us tomorrow. They are saying it isn't to be as bad here in my area as originally thought but there is a chance we will lose power. Not my first hurricane and won't be my last I'm sure. They blow through the area every 2 to 3 years. Tornadoes scare me more.

I will keep you guys posted on how we are doing. Going out today to batten down the hatches and get a few things just in case.

Taking a deep breath......

My front yard is covered in leaves this morning. Again! Every day we take away what we can. They are beautiful. They're helping me to exercise. So here I go. Every few minutes I'm going to do a BodyFlex breath - gives me energy!

Here I am again. Hoping to keep track of you all again. I have new goals and writing in each group is one. After the passing of 2 brothers and 2 friends and other close acquaintances, this year was not my best. Now I am making it better. So see you around.

Hi Everyone!

Well it's almost Holiday Season when temptations are everywhere. I've been trying to think: How can I make this a time when I feel proud of myself instead of regretful?

I keep reading that ritual helps to achieve goals.

So today I am telling you all that I am establishing a new 10 minute ritual: Advanced BodyFlex every morning before breakfast.

My excuses for not doing it have been: 1) It bothers my husband. Answer: no it does not. He's used to it and can wait a few minutes for me to finish.

2) I get bored with it. Answer: Who cares? It's boring to keep complaining about being too heavy when I have such a terrific tool.

How about you? Do you have have ritual? Tell us about it out tell us what your new ritual will be.

If you feel like it, please tel us your excuses and how you can answer them.

Happy breathing everyone!

Who out there is enjoying this glorious fall???? I am loving the cooler days and nights. I think it is at the perfect temperature. I tend to get cold, so I don't like it when is below 50 during the day, but I like it right where it is now.

Anybody doing anything fun? I am taking my kids to get apples in the mountains. I love apples, especially pink ladies, but they aren't quite in yet. I always get those in November.

Taking a deep breath......

Don't you just love hope you can focus on your breathing without anyone knowing what you're doing? Just take a second away from what they're saying and count 6 for your inhale, and 6 for your exhale. Let it go. You'll be more "there" for yourself and for everyone else.

I've been thinking about how important the diaphragm is. If we don't breathe our completely, we can't breathe in completely.

Keep your diaphragm strong. There are loads of breathing exercises that help to strengthen the diaphragm.

Try BodyFlex. Try yogic breathing. For example: breathe in and hold your breath. Put a finger against one nostril and breathe out through the other. Then breathe in, hold the breath, switch your finger to the other nostril and breathe out through the other nostril. Keep switching for at least five breaths throng either nostril.

Ah. Feel the energy.

maybe I could use an umbrella when I'm exercising so you can have that exercising outside feel without the rain soaking you....lol

I hate that when you can't sleep and then sleep when you need to be up.

I know DS9KIE! I had one of those nights. But after I posted, I fell back asleep - heavy and woke up late.

It's raining hard right now. I am so glad that I know how to BodyFlex - no need to go outside to get my aerobic workout.

Have a great weekend.

Seems like Tricia (fearless team co-leader) might still be having gall bladder pain - haven't seen her in a few days. Not like her. Please take a moment and send her a kind word so she knows we're thinking of her. Let's hope she's not suffering and it's just that she's busy and having a good time.

Hey - It's October - I hope you're all getting some Fall weather.

Did you know that you can do your breathing exercises while you're out walking at this great time of year. I mean, I would keep away from crowded shopping malls - or other places where people can see you, but when you find yourself alone, go ahead, do a little Oxycise! or a bit of BodyFlex. You can walk and do Breath of Fire (check youtube for instructions).

Do some in your car, do some when you get up, get some breathing exercises in! (I'm saying this to myself as much as to everyone else! emoticon )

One keep of the things I love about BodyFlex is that it gives me a great aerobic without without jumping around.

With fears that this might be TMI, I find it very hard nowadays (a in the last two years) to do any major aerobics or cardio because my boobs are too big, no bra fits and holds me comfortably and I can't enjoy any movements that make them bounce all over. I keep expecting them to get smaller as I lose weight, but not so far!!!!!

Unfortunately, I've really been slacking off from my BodyFlex of late. Gotta get in that great practice groove again.

On the plus side, I am going upstairs (and down) more.

Balance: get some work done, get some exercise in, get some household chores done, etc etc. Balance!

Anytime out there who can relate?

Thanks DS9KIE! It isn't easy to handle even though I know what's going on. She gets so insanely paranoid that I can't tell her that it's bothering me or that I think it's the meds.

Just something to breathe through!

My sister has a lot of problems and one of them is asthma. Lots of times she needs to take prednisone. It really helps her a lot. But it has terrible side effects including really among her up. She tends to be very hostile and negative on the best of days, and with the prednisone, she is really hard to take.

Yesterday, during a conservation with her my awareness of breath was really tested. She jumped on me for something she misunderstood. And the shouting & berating me continued.

I kept thinking: "Breathe" and it really helped me.

She is very sick and I just try not to go into reactive mode with her. It's not good for either of us. But she is a major challenge!

I find it helpful to try to be conscious of my breath whenever I can be, then that consciousness can be there when I really need need it like yesterday.

I have been putting up the halloween decorations and....hehehe scared a few kids...going down the stairs to the studio I have eye ball light, bunch of halloween pictures and a skeleton, then I just put up pumpkin light,spiderwebs and another skeleton in the entryway were they first walk in. Today I'm going to put up the pumpkin man...he will be sitting at the dinning room table playing a game. He looks like a person (he's that big) with regular clothes, but he has a pumpkin head that has a light in it and its so funny.

I have 3 big events coming up, the group lesson is coming up this weekend, then a Halloween party and then the Piano recital...makes Christmas look easy.

Sounds like a great day DS9KIE. I cannot believe it is already October. My weight has fluctuated so much this year that I'm glad to be back down to where I was in April even though that is hardly my goal weight!

Make sure you check out October's goals. Tricia came up with two great ones.

I hope to see all of you a lot in October. We all ned the support and encouragement. I have a feeling we're all going to be mighty proud of ourselves by the end of the year.

Sorry DS9KIE - my mix up. I would suggest going to youtube and checking out a variety of vids on yoga breathing - especially Breath of Fire. For those of you like me who's yummy is always a problem, this breathing technique targets the abdominal area without sit ups.

I hope everyone enjoys this last day of September.

That's quite a picture!!! emoticon It thought that was the English name for kabalbahti breathing - or you might know it as Kundalini breathing.

From now on I'll add that image to my focus when doing the breathing exercise. emoticon

But seriously, you got me back to doing yoga breathing. And it's amazing!

I'm thinking it would be great to hear more about Yoga breathing techniques.

I've been incorporating short bursts of Breath of Fire into my day and finding that I've got so much energy. Thanks DS9KIE!

I am very interested in your experiences with different breathing techniques. Please write and tell us about them.

Building self awareness is such an important part of the gift of being on sparkpeople. And building awareness of the breath is an important part of being on this team.

Doing my breathing exercises helps me build awareness of how tuning in to my breathing helps me relax. Have you ever noticed yourself gripping your phone with way more intensity than necessary? emoticon Or finding that your teeth are clenched tight?

Let's all take a moment right now and unclench the jaw, move the jaw around and let ourselves breathe gently. Ahhhhh. That feels good.

Good idea DS9KIE. Now to figure out what kind if candy I don't like. Hmmm.

On the home front, I'll probably make brownies topped with orange flavored frosting.

Tricia, I totally feel your pain. I think the real trouble with most chocolate its that it is paired with loads of fat. But I'm pretty sure it is addictive. Maybe I'll make spice cake instead.

Will start looking for McDougall friendly recipes

Me too, I buy stuff I know I won't eat, which is pretty much anything that isn't chocolate. If there is chocolate in the house, I am doomed! I love it, love it, LOVE IT! Up until recently, I would have these major chocolate cravings all the time, but I have gotten over it for the most part and I don't think about it as much. It took a long time and a lot of will power to get to this point, but I will always be a chocoholic.

LOL Rose,
yes, I can imagine it's too tempting when you're left with candy, huh? I always try to portion my kids' candy and am always thankful to being vegan so most of the candy isn't even an option for me, so my hips are safe! LOL

Oh yes, Rome is totally different from Sicily! The entire mainland is actually completely different and both sides are very firm on making sure everyone knows that! The Sicilians think they're better than the Northeners and vice versa! emoticon
Interesting that they actually have started doing Halloween by now too!

The real trick for me is what to do with all the treats after Halloween if they dint all go out the door with the neighborhood kids! Lol

Last year was our first Halloween here and we loved trying to figure out who everyone was - mostly the parents waiting on the sidewalk gave them away.

Interesting difference between Sicily and Rome Val. For several years now the Roman children have ben dressing up for Halloween (and calling it Halloween). They go from store to store - not house to house - for their treats. I believe it has caught on in London too.

Tricia,
that Trunk or treat sounds like a great idea! As does the 1K for families! I'd love to do that!

Oh I'm sure, once we're in the US, we'll have to get used to being in a new neighborhood and not as secure as we're used to from base housing!..

LOL DS9KIE about your students!

emoticon If you have candy, they will come................LOL!!!!

Yes, it doesn't have to be Halloween for kids to want candy, but I was asked about Halloween, what would be in our candy bowl and who was taking them to ToT this year and where they were going.........

Trunk or treat has been popular the past couple of years. I know my Y does it and also has a 1K for the families to run/walk in the nature trails in the woods and then the decorated trunks in the parking lot are filled with candy! My mother loves this! Her driveway is a 1/2 mile, so no ToTers unless you count my girls. This way, she finally gets to enjoy the thrills of Halloween! Our local hospital does it for the staff's familes and several churches. Not that ToT is dead by any means, but I guess people aren't as eager to knock on stranger's doors. Me, I don't take my kids to a house I don't know, but living in a small town, we know everybody!

Val, I can imgaine the flood gates opening up and I would be overwhelmed by a tital wave of kiddies coming for candy!

Taking a deep breath......

Tricia,

no, Halloween is something typical American and the Italians here don't really know it -unless they have contact with Americans. They're being let on base housing for ToT too, which, to be honest, puts a slight damper on the fun here as many Italian kids aren't even dressed up (their dress-up time is in February for 'Carneval', typical in Europe) and often don't even speak English and just hold out their hands for candy.. (They literally flood the gates when they arrive.. The first year we witnessed it, it was almost scary to see! LOL)

Being German national myself I can say it's nothing I ever grew up with; only now Germany is slowly starting to celebrate Halloween as well, but it's not traditional like in the US! emoticon emoticon
I really look forward to being back in the US next year for my favorite season!!! emoticon

The weekend is on its way!!!! The kids have swimming lessons at the Y so I will get some laps in and then they can have some fun at the kidcare while I jump on the treamill for a little while.

Hope everyone is having a great week so far! Loving the weather down here!!!! emoticon
