While listening to Mama asking the same ?s ever 30-45- seconds, I have been doing the silliest things, while making my carrot juice I forgot to put the pulp catcher on the juicer and decorated my counter and wall with the most glorious orange random sized polka dots. I just examined it as I finished making my juice looking for the beauty. Put juicer away and Mama is busy cleaning it up while I say hi team!! emoticon

Great job on the movin the body DS..

Rosa good habits until 2013 and beyond!!!

Have a great day! Hugs!

Good for you Tricia getting back in the pool.

I don't have any obvious breathing problems, but if I don't do breathing exercises like BodyFlex, I find that I am often short of breath going up stairs or walking briskly. And breathing in a pool has always been challenging for me. So extra kudos to you Tricia.

Hope everyone had a fun holiday and that you're able to keep exercising and eating right.

I actually feel pretty motivated to close out the year with good habits. Thanx for being there. I feel your support.

Thanks everyone for your support. I really appreciate it.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Mine was for the whole weekend, but that was ok. I didn't overdo it, so I didn't gain any weight and I am proud of that, but I didn't check in and no exercise. I hope I do better during Christmas.

I am hitting the pool tonight for some aquaerobics, going to get back on the exercise wagon today!

Taking a deep breath......

Trisha I am so sorry you lost you cherished kitty. It is good that the girls were spared seeing her..
Good luck with the husband being on board..We can never replace the one that is lost, but it sooths the heart to fall in love with another..

I haven’t had the joy of owning a cat, many dogs..My kids have cats and keep them indoors always..I am going to pass on the info. on pine nugget kitty litter..Rosa great info,

DS you are so right, you have sparked my hope..

Have your best day lovely ladies! emoticon

So much heartbreak out there - that's for sure.

Well, here are the tips that I can think of right now

1) never ever let the kitten outside - that way it will be used to staying in and won't run in and out. Hopefully it will be like mine and not even try to get out.

2) Use pine nugget kitty litter like www.felinepine.com/original/ instead of any of the clumping litter. We used to have the clumping kind and it stunk to high heaven. It's also real bad for cats because they lick themselves and then they get it in them and it clumps inside of them! This stuff is amazing. We never ever smell anything from the box. You just scoop out the solid waste every day and let the wet waste stay. We change it all once a week. It is well worth it in every way.

3) Keep a little mat next to the litter box so that when the cat leaves the litter box anything trapped on it's feet gets caught on the mat. Here's an example: www.catscenterstage.com/review-petma
te
littercatcher.shtml


4) Do not have the cat's claws removed - it's cruel. But do get some clippers and from time to time you'll know it's time to clip them. Never clip into the "quick". You can find instructions on line. Get several cat scratch posts like www.petsmart.com/family/index.jsp?ca

That's just a few things off the top of my head Tricia. Does anyone else have any tips?

I hope your girls are ok. It's so sad.

well Kimmy being that your brother will be in bed and can't get up.....oh boy the possibility...Have him ague this...Everyone need fruits and veggie to live and junk/processed food is not food...how can any one ague with that (especially after heart surgery)


TDMTBIRD...ooohhh sorry about your cat...i had a student who came in crying ....found out that the cat was sit behind the tire of the car and they didn't know that and the cat got runed ove, the cat squealed and went running across the yard, stopped by a tree....they were on the way to piano lessons when this happened so they came but didn't stay for long.

That is soo sad, I hope you and your kids are doing well.

Thank you Rosalie! I would love some tips. When I was a kid, we lived a 1/2 mile from the road so our cats and dogs never had to worry about the highway, but where I live now, it is hard. My dog sticks to my yard, but the cat was a hunter. She even brought me a present on my birthday. Anyway, I have never had a pet in the house, but if I can convince Andy that he would never know the cat was in the house, it will make my argument a little easier.

Taking a deep breath......

Oh Tricia! I'm so very sorry for your loss and that you were the one who found your sweet kttty like that. emoticon That's really really hard.

My husband and I no longer let any cat of ours out of the house. We had one too many similar tragedies. I hope your husband sees how hard this has been on you and your girls and changes his mind.

Thank you so much for letting us know what's going on in your life. It's really what we're all here for: Support! And we are definitely here for you.

If you want, I can send you some tips for making the house "cat smell" proof. Just let me know.

I hope things look up for you all today.

Hey there team! I know I have been a little MIA lately. Last week was a rough one. I did enjoy my day off, but it went downhill from there. I had to work late every day, my husband was out of town, but worst of all....I came home one night and our cat had been hit across from our driveway and was dead. I was so glad the girls couldn't see her because it was so dark. That is a hard thing to explain to a little one, why their beloved pet isn't there. I told my husband if we are to have a cat, it must stay inside, but I can't sell him on it. He isn't crazy about cats and this one just happened to come live with us and was so sweet and my girls loved her. I am going to work on him, maybe I can get him to change his mind.

Kimmy, I have family members that are similar. We pick our friends, not our family. We get to deal with family more often than not. Be patient the best way you can, I know that is a HARD thing to do.

Taking a deep breath......

Oh my goodness girls thank you for the advice, AGAIN!

I feel rather embarrassed about my post. I should have some empathy for my brother’s situation…Self-pity is usually not one of my characteristics.:o(

I would love to be able to give him some advice on diet. BUTTT… As not to boar you with a long story. He thinks he is superior to all. I am not exaggerating. He was accepted into Mensa when he was a young man. High IQ does not always bring with it functional life. Being bipolar is only one of his maladies His son asks me, “how come you can get along with him?” My response was: “I have by no means ever disagreed with him.” I learned not to open that gate when I was a kid… He loves a good argument. He has driven everyone from his life. His arrogance and combative nature has only multiplied with age… In the past I would give him reading material that I felt would benefit him. I ask him to read it and give me his opinion. I will try this approach during his recovery.

I realize that it is up to me how I deal with the situation. I will get off of my pity party. Today and everyday is only as good as we make it!! We create our own experience! I chose to have the best day today and all the days that are gifted to me in the future!!!! We are in charge!

Keep your brightest light shining! emoticon

Oh Kimmy! DS9KIE is soooooooooo right! Vent/Breathe/Vent/Breathe.

I knew that you were already taking good care of your Mama. I know that she'll adjust once she sees that you are there. Awwww. I'm so sorry that your brother is so messed up.

Maybe once he has his surgery, he'll be willing to read Dr. McDougall and try to turn him on to Dr. Esselstyn - his work is very specific to heart patients.

The thing is, people are always nicer once their diets are plant based. So aside from the benefits to his poor body, by switching to this WOE (Way Of Eating), you'll get bennies too.

Thank you for sharing what's going on - and please - keep sharing. We are here for you.

Thank you Rosa for the goal setting tips..I remember reading that method somewhere but I haven’t tried it, I haven’t been much of a goal setter lately.
You are an attorney- I thought you had to be well educated. Good for you..

Decorations, I have a wreath for fall and one for Xmas..That pretty much sums it up for my holiday décor. We always spend Xmas with the kids. When the kids were home I went nuts, painting windows, red, green, sparkle and santa everywhere. I tried to make it as magical as possible. The years I host Thanksgiving I make more of an effort.

My life as I know it now is over for a while..My brother is having a triple by-pass next week..I should say my cheese eating, beef eating, butter spreading and heavy cream in his cottage cheese eating brother. I am not happy with him..Long story short: He insisted on moving in with my Mama, after he lost his home. He claims he wants to care for her. I wanted to use her house to help keep her in a nice care facility (she has Alzheimer’s and it is time) . He treats her like crap!! I have felt for sometime that he just wants her house. He is an a$$..Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.. Any way…I will be caring for Mama . I am looking forward to bringing her a bit of joy. I am going to try to bring her to our home, although she has a hard time being out of her environment. I will just have to see how it goes..Thanks for listening..

Have a beautiful day!! emoticon

I love working for myself. I've done a lot of jobs in my time and, yeah - love being my own boss even though sometimes she makes me work crazy hours. But most of the time she's ok and the commute is great! emoticon

Decorations! Hmmmmmmmmm. Haven't even thought about those yet. We are in my parents' house and they were almost always gone during the holidays so there isn't anything here that I know of. All our stuff is in storage in California. And there are boxes everywhere. So, not sure we'll be putting anything up this year.

How about you?

Hey Hey Hey! Getting closer and closer to Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years! In other words, it's almost 2013!

Have you reviewed your goals from the beginning of 2012?

Here's a trick I learned a long time ago about goal setting: Draw a circle on a piece of paper. Start making "pie" slices for all the things you do in your life - Family, Exercise, Household, Work, Spirituality, Recreation, Creativity,etc. - make the slices the size you want to give to that activity.

This way you get a starting spot for how to make sure your goals address all you do realistically - and you make your wheel round.

Maybe now is a good time for all of us to start thinking about next year!

Kimmy, I work for myself - attorney. I hate going to court so provide other kinds of legal services - all pertaining to nonprofit and small businesses. All my clients are in California.

DS9KIE, I hope you feel better by now.

Kimmy, have you tried going on youtube to search Kundalini Breathing? Just a few seconds/minutes of these techniques gives me so much energy.

Have a lovely day everyone!

Good day team

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend! I sure did!

Trisha, Santa shopping..How fun is that! I miss those days. Embrace the time w/ your little ones for it is fleeting..

Rosa, I did not know you worked outside the home..I do not know why I just assumed that you were a SAHW..

DS Sorry to hear of your fall..Still giving you trouble after 3yrs..Yikes..I have been thinking about getting those spiky things to strap on my boots..It is such an old people thing to do..But if the shoe fits..Or. if the spiky thing fits..

Have a wonderful day, remember to hug yourself!! Big squeeze!!

Have a wonderful day off Tricia. I know you will. It sounds like you have wonderful plans.

For those of us who are working today - let's all consciously take a few deep breaths - hold them for 6 beats - and slowly release them. Heart way to start any project.

And let's all enjoy ourselves today.

Well in my neighborhood it will be 70 tomorrow just like today! Short sleeves are still needed but they say it will get colder. I hate up and down weather. It needs to stay cold, people get sick a lot when it is like this.

I hope all enjoyed their weekend. Today is quiet for me. Tomorrow I have the day off and I get to spend the whole day with my husband. We will be Santa shopping since the girls will be in school and daycare. They have swimming lessons tomorrow at the y so I will get a water aerobics class in while they are doing their thing.

Taking a deep breath......

Happy Sunday Girls

Grab your coat an get your hat, leave your worry at the door step
Just direct your feet to the sunny side of the street..La la la sing it! On the sunny side of the street…….I can’t get that old song out of my head this morning. I guess that is a good thing…

My Man is home this weekend, so nice to have him. He is spending time in his man cave. It gives me time to spark!! yoo hoo

We awoke to a snowy cold day, 8 degrees. Brrrrrrr Trisha and DS enjoy your heat wave!

I am going to embrace this beautiful day!!

Thank you for all the advice! Shine on!! emoticon

You can get body flex on DVD if you want the gym bar resistance band. You do the whole thing in a chair. I think the whole kit is 37 dollars. I like the original moves better but you can only get that on VHS, pity.

YAY Oxycise! Let us know how you do with it Kimmy and DS9KIE.

I would also recommend BodyFlex too, but that's VHS! No DVDs! There is a book called Be A Loser! www.amazon.com/Be-Loser-Lose-Inches-

It's actually quite helpful.

Glad you had a good birthday Tricia. You and me - we have a lot in common. I love books too. Sounds like you are expecting more cold weather this winter.

It's hottish here - but not 70 degrees! Crazy weather everywhere. Right?

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

Hey there team! Thanks to all of you that wished me a Happy Birthday yesterday. You guys are the best! I had an awesome day and got enough book money so I have books to read all winter.

Snow! I would love some snow, but won't happen, supposed to be 70 on Sunday. Tropical heat wave for one day!

I am glad I could send you down memory lane Rosalie. I love visiting my family down at Duck and I can imagine folks getting stuck in the sand. My dad says back in the 70's there was nothing there, built up a lot since then.

Kimmy I like Oxycise, they have an easy does it dvd on the main website, amazon may get in one of those. You can do it anywhere, so quiet, that is why I like it, but I like the body flex moves, so I combin the two. As long as you do the breathing, you can do it your way.

Taking a deep breath......

Thank for the link Rosa. So many of them are out of stock..The ones available are for level 2 and 3 and from private sellers. I have Oxycise! Level one on my wish list. They will notify me when it becomes available..Until then I will check our local library. Thanks DOLL

Snow is so beautiful - especially that first magical snow. Congratulations! I bet it will sparkle in your paintings today.

I love increasing flexibility too. And the breath seems to be such a big part of it.

Try going back to Amazon. I think this is the link for the Oxycise! DVD:

I'm so glad all of you are here.

We have snow this morning..Snow over tons of leaves that I didn’t get cleaned up. It is a beautiful day!!

Know that you deserve to have your dreams come true and that you have the power to bring them into being. Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to support and encourage . If you can see it you can be it!!!!

Rosa, do not feel sorry I should have done more research. Although I did it again yesterday. I am sure it is doing me some good. The ones that I can do involve breathing deep and vigorous with specific movements and some meditation in between each set. It is very invigorating..Thank you for the breathing team as I would have not ever tried anything like this before. I use to do Yoga with Rodney Yee at home with a vhs..Olden times..I think I did that just so I could look at him..hehehe Do you have a particular yoga DVD that you would recommend..I looked for the Oxcise on Amazon..They didn't have a DVD. I would love to find something for beginners that would help with my flexibility..

As my friend Shannon would say: PEACE LETTUCE LEAFS

Sorry that dvd didn't work out. I wish there were a way to preview them before we buy them.

I know how hard yoga is and I haven't found one easy. But you could just do some of the yoga DVD until you are getting used the moves then keep adding as your better at it.

Hi Girls,

Life is good!!

Happy Birthday Trisha!! May you have a day filled with Love and Laughter!

Duck, stuck in Duck, hehehe sounds like something that Dr. Seuss would have fun with.

I received my Kundalini Yoga dvd yesterday..OH MY..I am not very supple…I did what I could, buttt, I have a ways to go..I may need something more my speed. Any suggestions.

My Man left me to work on a job that is three hrs. away.. I am afraid he will be there through the winter..I am not taking it very well. I am acting like a big baby..Like that is going to change things…I’ll snap out of it.. He is just to wonderful for words!!

This quote reminded me of our team leaders:

"If you come forward and share your gifts, you will inspire others to do the same."

SHINE ON!!!

I'm from North Carolina (Chapel Hill) and I LOVE Duck! When I was in high school, I was with a bunch of friends and we decided to go to the Outer Banks. Some time around 2 in the morning we got stuck in the sand. We were Stuck in Duck! We kept saying "We're stuck in Duck" "We're stuck in Duck". It was so funny - we were laughing about that for weeks.

Good to go down memory lane there for a minute Tricia.

Great day today! I voted early this morning and got to spend the day outside. A little chilly but a pretty day.

Kimmy, fall is beautiful here in Southside Va. I am an hour to the NC line. I can be in Raleigh in a little over 2 hours. I have family that way and in Duck so I get to go down there from time to time. I'm still partial to VA.

Hope everyone had a good day!

Good morning team..

“Laughing is good exercise. It's like jogging on the inside.”
My spark friend Meriana coined this quote..Love it..

Rosalie, Thank you for the link ! Interesting very interesting..(Artie Johnson from Laugh-in use to say that, hehehe, you are most likely to young to remember him) I looked for a Brikram yoga DVD on Amazon and all I could find were books…Rats…I ordered the Kundalini Yoga . I am excited to start my dragon breathing..What ever that is..

Trisha, I bet fall is beautiful in your neck of the woods..Our daughter lives in North Carolina. I have had the good fortune to be able to visit her in the fall..It was absolutely glorious!! So many exquisite colors!! Many that we don’t see in our area. I hope you sinus infection is getting better..:o)

Today I expect to have a marvelous day!!!

Shine on!!

Happy Monday everybody! I take it all had a good weekend? I did the family stew was a lot of work but very delicious and lots of fun. My family can get a little crazy sometimes but it is fun. My best friend came from Roanoke to join us.

It is so crisp here, a glorious fall! I love it!!! I do have a sinus infection but I am breathing through it. I can't get a handle of body flex but I can do Oxycise and it helps open me up. Being outside is good for me. I have some farm visits to make tomorrow so I will get to spend a lot of time outside and stay out of thee stuffy office.

I'm really excited to have some new members! Our team is growing. I love it that more and more people are learning about the benefits of using air for exercise!

Taking a deep breath......

Awww Kimmy! You're already spreading your wonderful sunshine to our team. Thanks.

We have another new member today: CHERYL8868. Her sparkpage is set to private so you will probably have to send her a spark mail. Maybe you can convince her to open up her page so that we can get to know her better. Of course, it's a private decision and there are many reasons to keep it private.

I am about to do my Bikram class - this time with a heater in the room. It won't be as hot as it gets in a Bikram studio - but it will help loosen up my muscles.

I just love the beginning pranayama breathing in a Bikram class. This is from a copycat type of yoga but the instructions are really clear and precise:
. www.youtube.com/watch?v=EyRZWg_2yTI

Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday full of magical joyful moments.

DSKIE, Cool you teach piano, how rewarding. I bet you were proud of your students at the recital. I have had learning piano on my bucket list for years. Too many buckets too little time…

Trisha, looking forward to getting to know you…

PAM :O) How special that you have that lovely little voice. What a wonderful reminder.
Morning team!! Nice to be here!

Shine ON!!

I am so excited that my wonderful friend KIMPAINTS joined our team! Please go to her sparkpage to welcome her. And boy oh boy will you get a treat yourself. Kim is a gifted andprolific artist and her website is a joy to see. Kim introduced herself to the team in the intro section. Anyone else focusing on Kundalini here?

So, Everybody, what did you do with the extra hour this morning? I planned on either getting a little work done or sleeping in. Guess which one won? But hey! We all can use a little more sleep can't we?

I hope everyone has a wonderful and restful Sunday and remember to take at least a few conscious breaths.

Be sure and get both 1 & 2.

It is an AWESOME workout - really hard but so great. Love the breathing part right at the beginning. Oh - and get a heater going because it's nice to loosen up your muscles with a bit of heat.

Stew is such great comfort food Tricia and it sounds like a fun time for everyone.

Yes, it's quite cold here in Illinois - but then some days it's still warm. I try to enjoy all the seasons. But I'm so sorry that some folks still don't have power - they must be really cold.

Everybody have a great Friday!

Great job Pam! Breathing will help keep you calm, I know it works for me.

It is really cold here, is it cold every where else? I know I have seen it snow in November before, but I am not used to it being 70ish one week and then 40ish the next.

Going to a family stew tomorrow. I love stew! Awesome stuff, pain to make but well worth it in the end.

Taking a deep breath......

Hi Rosalie emoticon I want to thank you again on this thread for being so upbeat. I want to do the "Gratitude list" thread and this one too! Will do the breathing with you emoticon this reminds me. One time I was taking my Grandniece to her Nan's house and for some reason I got frightened while driving. So innocently from the back I hear, "Aunt Pam, breathe in, breathe out, breathe in, breathe out." When my conversations turn to breathing I always hear that little voice, and I do it. Just wish I could hear it all the time LOL

Welcome to November 2012!

I hope everyone had a great Halloween and you're ready for a new month filled with wonderful deep breaths.

Thought I'd try breaking out the new month with it's own thread.

This is the month of Thanksgiving. So I thought I'd we could make a little Thanks list. I'll post it below in the challenges area.

This is a great month to become more breath aware. So let's really step up the conscious long slow breaths. I'm getting into some good Pranayama breathing these days: breathe in 6 counts, breathe out 6 counts. Simple.

What are your needs from us this month? How can this team support you?

Have a wonderful month!
