The field trip was nice - the kids all had fun too. But Seamus (my son) was picking the berries and shoving them in his mouth faster than I could stop him - he was covered in juice and super sticky but really enjoyed eating warm berries. He was a little out of control with it so I did have to remove him from the picking area and deposit him into the sand area. My daughter Jillian picked beautiful berries and ate half of them as a snack after school yesterday. Fun and yummy. But you know - I didn't get to eat a single one yet - maybe I can sneek one while Jilli is in school.

I hope every one has a great day. I bought a seat for my son to ride on the back of my bike yesterday so I'm gonna see if I can put that on my bike today so we can get out and ride in the mornings - he no longer wants to sit in the stroller for walks so I am not getting as much excercise as i would like. Hopefully he'll like this better.
Hey Sheila maybe I can ride over to your house some day - you're not too far away.

Peace love and recycling!!

Hello emoticon

I had a lot to do yesterday but wasn't feeling real good so I didn't get much done. But I have today off too so maybe I will get it all done today. Procrastination is my middle name somtimes...I will have to work on this too.

I only got one mile in yesterday but it was fast paced. It was better than nothing I guess.

Heather, how did the field trip go? My daughter took her two little ones out there. She just sent me pictures. I thought it was especially cool that they had the sand area for the kids to play in. It looks like they had a ball. She didn't go on a field trip, she just took them because she wanted the kids to get the experience.
How productive were you? Enjoy those strawberries and have one for me. You can't hardly get a good strawberry in the stores today. I need to get out there before it is too late.

I PLAN on having a OP day today!

Will be back on tonight emoticon

Well, I have unoffically walked over 10,000 steps today but my pedometer reset a few times so it didn't actually say that but I did see it at over 5,000 once and over 3,000 twice. I'm still trying to find the right place for it on my waist band so I don't reset the darn thing.

Peace love and recycling!!

Happy Birthday Paula!!

I'm going to pick strawberries today with a troop of kindegarteners - my duaghter's field trip - wish me luck. I have been a little leary about going picking because my 2 year old is usually all over the place - Hopefully I can get a little picking in rather than just running after him (which is good excercise too but fairly unproductive). Good job Fran with the walking and water drinking!! Keep up the good work!!

Peace love and recycling!!

Hey everyone! Fran, you Rock! You are doing great!! Larry and I were out of town today, getting back just a short time ago. I haven't done any exercising today...I may do the 30-day shred in just a bit...before the Biggest Loser comes on!

I'm staying on track somewhat, but I'm taking tomorrow off. Larry is going to grill me a steak for my birthday!!

Fran, I don't know why Jackie doesn't have a page. I did write to her and suggested that she do one, but I've not heard from her.

Have a great evening, and I'll check in later this evening or tomorrow!!

Where is everyone???? Am I the only long winded person on the team?

I didn't quite make it to the four mile fast walk this morning...I started out but my legs started hurting so I stopped a few minutes...then I saw that only one mile had passed, so I got up & finished to the end. I have never had my legs hurt like that before. I usually get a little winded, but I guess the the other exercises & doing all that walking yesterday got to me.

I have stayed within my calorie range so far and plan to do so for the rest of the day. emoticon

I am working on my 20 oz 3rd bottle of water and will try to get the fourth in by the time I go to bed.

Today will be day #2 of staying on track! I hope all of you are doing well?

P.S. Paula, do you know why Jackie doesn't have a page?

Good morning to my favorite sparkers! Yesterday was a great day as far as my eating went. I didn't get any exercise in, but I did help unload a 2100 piece truck at work. I did a lot of walking for 8 hours. We have to upack, price, and put away all 2100 pieces. There are usually 4 of us to do this, but one is on vacation, so it made it a lot harder on the three of us. Anyway, I am not looking for sympathy, just wanted to give you an idea of what kind of exercise I got. I got home at 8:30 last night & was exhausted so I ate a little something and went to bed. I am off today and being totally lazy so far. I plan on walking to Leslie Sansone's 4 mile fast walk. It is interval, walking fast for 3 minutes and then switching to a 2 minute jog. It really gets my heart pumping!
I already have my day planned out for my "live it" (not "DIE it") and I am totally motivated.
What is everyone doing for today? I may go pick some strawberries later today...thanks to Sheila's suggestion. emoticon

I hope you all have a great day! Let's keep each other posted...I think that might keep us on track a little better!

Great minds think alike!!! I'm so glad we have this team, too!!

Alan has a page....it's URBANSTRIDERS. I have him as a friend, so you can always click on his link from my page.

PODRICK (Jackie) does NOT have a page. You can send her a spark message, tho. To find her, I had to go to the official Georgia Team, find the Valdosta Rally Sign-up thread, then find her name, and click on send message.

Also, Amy is actually AMY-DUCKY on here, not DUCKY-7777.

I know we will grow this team and be much more supportive of each other! Spread the spark everyone!!

Thanks, Fran!

You have NO IDEA how thrilled I am that we have our own team! I suggested to someone at the rally about it but I didn't know if anyone paid attention!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you Paula for starting this team.
I was starting to lose my incentive a little and almost didn't go to the rally, then I thought maybe the rally would jump start me again....YEP! I am so hyped right now! All of you have given me such hope!
"Today is the First day of the rest of my life!" The pictures are great! I love all my gifts too!

Lenora, thank you so much for helping with the rally, you and Paula are my HEROS!

Has anyone been in touch with Allen or found his page?
Also, I cannot find Podrick's (Jackie) page...anyone have her on your friends list?

I was going to ask if anyone was sore from our little training session...UMM HMMM! You felt it too Eh Sheila? I am off tomorrow and just might go strawberry picking myself! My daughter went last week but I didn't get to go with her.

I sent Judy,(JBuwa) Theresa,(Bluerain2009) Sarah,(SBuwa27) and Holly (Pickypebbles) an invitation to join the team. WooHoo! emoticon

I had a really fun time! I very much enjoyed meeting everyone. I love, love, love my raffle prizes!!! That "little" circuit training course actually kicked my butt. I am really feeling it this morning! emoticon

"There is no use trying," said Alice; "one can't believe impossible things."
"I dare say you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."

Our Valdosta Rally was great! We had 12 people come out to enjoy this beautiful day, meet new friends, and get some exercise! There were fellow sparkers from Valdosta, Omega, and Morven.

We began the day with two personal trainers from Moody AFB. They were fabulous! They brought some equipment with them to demonstrate, then allowed all of us to use the equipment during a circuit training course they set up for us! I think we all learned a few tips from these amazing trainers!!

After the exercise portion of our rally, we ate lunch, took a “spark quiz”, held our raffle, and spent time getting to know each other better. A couple of people played volleyball…kudos to them for the extra exercise!!

I would like to say a special thank you to JAVAQUEEN2 (Lenora) for her assistance and for helping to secure not only raffle items, but our time on the radio! She did an outstanding job!! Thanks, Lenora!!

We had three people come out to join us who read about our rally in the newspaper. They were all very interested in joining SparkPeople.com, so hopefully we will see them in the group soon. Two others read about the rally in the paper, joined SparkPeople.com the day before the rally, and then came to the rally.

We all had a great time and pictures will be posted soon!!

Paula
