I just noticed that this is the February thread--there is a new one for March!

IT has been cold but back into the 70 today. Gorgeous outside.

My son is away on business this week, home for a day and half this weekend and then off for another full week. I'm hoping I get to see him on the weekend but it is very likely that he won't have time for poor old mom. So it will be pretty quiet for me.

Today is Suddenly Sleepy Saturday! My SIL has narcolepsy which can be very debilitating. Today is a day we are going downtown to a walk for awareness. Do take a look at the link here and educate yourself on the necessity of sleep. It is so important to your overall health.

High today in the 40s, but I've decided that I'm going for a walk this afternoon anyway! I've got to stop using the weather for an excuse--I love to walk in the snow, so temps in the 40s shouldn't be a problem!!!

Our weather has been the same, 60s for a couple of days and then 30s for a couple more days. Unfortunately the colder days seem to fall on the weekend!

Good job on the walk, Barb. Just think of all that Vitamin D your body manufactured.

Frannie, glad you're back on track after the oreo celebration. It's important to celebrate a friend's birthday occasionally. :-)

Very warm yesterday and still 80 today but it is supposed to be cooling down again later this week.

I just took a good long walk after mah jongg. THe center is near to a Trader Joe's and I figured why not? It turned out that it was a longer walk than I realized but once I started there was no turning back! According to my pedometer it was 32 minutes of aerobic activity.

Hi all, it is really cold here today, it was 21 this morning! They are saying it will be warmer later but BRRRR! I did walk to work this morning despite how crazy everyone thinks I am. I cannot wait to walk in warmer weather.

I did terribly food wise this weekend! It is the 100 year anniversary of the oreo (my favorite cookie!!) so I felt it wise to celebrate! Oh, well, today is a new day and it really was just a brief lapse. I am back on track today with yogurt and fruit for breakfast and home made chicken noodle soup for lunch!

Barb, I am looking forward to riding my bike outside, but for now will stick to the stationary bike. I want to make sure that knee is totally healed since outside riding is more challenging. I don't think it will be too long before I try it though! For now, my outside activity is walking.

Today I want to try to get in 2 cardio sessions--just different routines. I had hoped to walk, but the weather isn't cooperating. If we had snow, I was going walking anyway, but a cold rain just doesn't appeal to me! I may try some of the WII workouts this morning then head to the Y this afternoon. Working the polls tomorrow for 14 or 15 hours, so exercise may not be an option! Somehow I need to get in extra minutes for the March Into Spring Challenge, especially since I missed cardio yesterday as well.

Nothing here, and I assume that you're ok. Everything I heard was in the Ohio-Indiana-Illinois area.

I love going out Sunday mornings to the gym. There's no one on the road, and the gym is almost empty when I get there, although by the time I leave, it has filled up. I had planned to try a new piece of weight equipment this morning, but I chickened out. I kept looking at it as I did the elliptical, and I realize that it is unlikely that I can do it because my upper body strength is not what I would expect it to be after all the exercise. Maybe I will get there.

I am still very proud of myself for making the gym a 4 time a week trip, and doing more each time. I guess there is still hope that some day it will result in the scale going down.

Anyway, beautiful again today--over 80 outside. Perfect day here for you to ride your bike!

Barb, we always heard that March could go either way. If it came in like a lamb, it would go out like a lion, and vice versa.

I hope everyone got through this week's storms with no damage or injury.

Toni, welcome back. Hope you can visit often.

March is off to a great start here today--the temps are in the low 80s, it's sunny and the wind is blowing about 20 mph. I'm afraid of what the end of the month will be like if March comes in like a lamb and goes out like a lion! :-) Since it's supposed to rain for the next 2 days, I'm off for a nice walk to the Y for a stationary bike ride and some strength training!

Hi everyone! Today starts our new March into Spring challenge. If you haven't had a chance to take a look it is posted in the Challenges forum. You only need to add 30 minutes a week to your cardio! Easy-Peasy!

Hi everyone, I haven't been here in a while....just to busy I guess! My daycare kids keep me quite busy through out the day.

Frannie....thank you for letting me know about the March challenge, I'm always up for a challenge. What about also a weigh in once a week? I know it would definitely keep me accountable.

Have a wonderful day:)

Becca, like that attitude! What is important is that remember to pick ourselves up, dust off the seat of our pants, and get back on track whenever we slip. Have a great day!

Garvco, enjoy the swim meets. My daughter has been on the local Y swim team for 10 years (rural area and high schools don't have teams), so I know how you're feeling. I hope their meets go well, and you have a great day getting those tasks done today.

This afternoon I have to go to an election officials meeting for the Republican primary next week. I hope the meeting is short, but there are several new pole workers, so we're having a mock election so they can better understand what is happening. I just hope I get out of the meeting in time to workout before dinner! I have several other things to take care of this morning, so I may have to do a mini workout instead of my usual hour or more.

Liking that post Becca! I too hope to have a good day. I am running errands today - have 3 tasks to get done (my mini-goal/task view of life) and am getting more nervous by the hour....about Thur/Fri..

Why the nerves? Well - 2 of my high school kids have their major District swimming champs Thurs/Fri. My son is in 9th grade and on 2 relays with mainly seniors hoping to get to the State Championships and their performance at Districts (time&place) determines if they go. The relays have a very good shot at it, but he knows he has to swim his personal best times. Watching my daughter's relays will be very exciting. They are not in the running for anything - just very excited to qualify for the meet. Swimmers work so hard Nov - March and it is a thrill to cheer them on in their final races of the season.

So to calm my nerves I am taking on my "tasks" for the day - head on!

@becca - sending you calming vibes....as the saying goes: this too shall pass. Take a walk? finish 1 short and doable project/task? don't beat yourself up on the food thing, its just a simple speed bump. road is smooth on the otherside.

Hi Kathy, welcome to the team! I started this almost 5 years ago and it has helped me so much! I know that you will find great support, good advice and tips and friends with this team!

Are we ready for the March into Spring challenge? I challenge you to add 30 more cardio minutes to your current routine in March. If you already have a regular cardio schedule, try adding a few minutes more each day you exercise! If you haven't really gotten into a good cardio groove this is a good chance to begin adding those minutes! Are we all up for a challenge? Check out the challenge forum to join in and then keep us posted on your progress weekly.

Kathy, welcome aboard. I'm Bonnie and live in the eastern part of Virginia. Just be patient and remember to not let the slips in life get you down. They will happen, but we just have to pick ourselves up, dust off the seat of our pants, and get back on the right track.

Hi Kathy from Vermont - Welcome & best of luck to you. I am Barb from New York State. I am 56 years old now. (It's not so bad on this side of the hill!) I have two granddaughters and a third grandchild (sex not yet determined) also on the way. I joined Spark quite a while ago, but didn't stick with it so now I am back again - unfortunately with even MORE weight to lose this time. I know I can do it (you can too!) and Sparks can help (if we let it!). Nice to make your acquaintance!

Great story. It is interesting how random little things turn us for the better or the worse.....

This morning I decided to tell myself that I have gained a couple of pounds of muscle this year.....which might be somewhat true. I definitely have biceps and would have triceps if not for the batwings, but muscle is supposed to burn fat better. Hmmmmm.....

It is so easy to get off track, but what is important is that we take steps to get back on track as soon as possible. The best one that happened to me this week was husband intervention (that he still doesn't know about)! I was having a strong urge to get a Wendy's hamburger for lunch Wednesday. Just as I had almost convinced myself to jump in the van and go get it, dh called and wanted to know if I was going to be around the house for a while. He was getting ready to do a computer project at work and thought he might need my advice. As a result, I stayed at home and ate healthy foods, even though he figured out the problem by himself and didn't need my help!

We hit 75 here yesterday. Right now it is 77 with a wind chill of 79, so obviously the wind is blowing from the south! LOL Thunderstorms and 35 mph winds are supposed to come through this afternoon, so I want to get a nice walk in this morning, and then hit the Y for a bike ride and strength training this afternoon.

Have a great weekend if I don't make it back on here today.

Good morning.

I went out last night with DH. We had a nice dinner. I did good until dessert. I had salad & boiled shrimp but my sweet tooth took over. I ate some pie.

Ouch! BUt I agree that it happens to everyone. Sometimes I think that those kind of slips are necessary to reinforce the good behavior. I had a piece of cake last night for dessert, and I should not have, but it is what it is and I have to just get back on track.

Becca, most of us do that, I certainly have had more than my fair share of "little incidents" with those trigger foods! We all just have to pick ourselves up and move on.

Good morning all!

It's suppose to be in the 80"s here today. Snow sounds great! We hardly had a winter at all this year.

I went to grocery store yesterday, past the donuts, then went back and picked up a pack. I ATE 4 DONUTS YESTERDAY! I sent them to work with DH this morning so I wouldn't eat anymore.

Oh well. I'm trying again today. I know it's funny all my trying and messing up. But if I don't try I SURE won't lose weight.

Have a wonderful day!

Hi all, they are calling for major snow tonight, 4 - 6 inches for our area. I really can't complain, we haven't had a lot of snow and what we did have melted and didn't stay on the ground for weeks! What an odd winter!

Well didn't take mom to doc. She decided she didn't want to go today it being a check-up. That was fine with me. LOL!

I'm going to take a lazy day. I do want to get my walk in. But that is stress relief for me. Going to eat lunch with DH.

Vicki, I hope everything gets out with the xrays and the doctor. Hopefully you can get the infection cleared up quickly.

Barb, good job on yesterday's elliptical training! You are really getting good at that machine.

Becca, sorry you had such a "running around" day yesterday. Hopefully you'll get right back on track today with healthy eating and exercise, but also have a chance to rest.

Frannie, a spring challenge sounds great. I need to gradually increase the cardio to my pre-surgery levels, so a challenge may be just what I need. Glad your mom has finished her treatments, but am sorry that they were only able to slow it's growth and not eradicate the cancer.

Today I need to get some house cleaning done as well as planning to get outside and enjoy the warmer weather (mid 60s today, mid 70s tomorrow and Friday) the rest of the week. I"ll probably walk to the Y to workout--I'm looking forward to being out in the sunshine and making some Vitamin D!!!!

Hi everyone, hope you are having a good morning! My mom finished her last round of radiation yesterday, we are so glad. It is a long drive to the hospital. But she is done and hopefully it will keep her cancer from spreading to her brain. She is doing really, really well physically, mentally it is up and down. She gets a bit depressed when she thinks about the future. Her cancer is not gone, just slowed down for awhile and that is sometimes hard to face. But over all she is good.

I would like us to try another challenge for March. A March into Spring Challenge! My thought is that we would all add to our cardio routines. If you are not getting any exercise this will be a good chance to jump start that. If you are already exercising regularly, and I know many of you are, we can add to that just a bit. Maybe 10 minutes a day or 30 minutes a week. What do you guys think?

Oh man! This has been a very busy day. I went to town 5 times today. It's only 2.5 miles to town, but 5 times? That's ridiculous. Went to doc first, came home went back to P.O. & ate lunch out, came home, went back to library & grocery store for mom, came home, did church bookwork, went back to town to bank, came home, went back to town to pick up carry out for our supper. Ugh! I'm so tired. I didn't eat too good today either. Too much stress. But I did get in a 30 min walk & some strength exercise.

Good Morning. I got my walk in yesterday and this morning. It's up in the air right now if I'm going to be able to get the needed x-ray in the morning at the hospital. Billing is squaking over the payment plan we've had for the last 2 years. They want me to up the monthly payment 10 times what I've been paying monthly and we simply can't afford it. The woman in billing was going to talk to her supervisor today and call me back but depending what she says I may not get the x-ray. I went this morning to my doctors office and explained what was going on and asked for an antibiotic for the infection. It won't show what's causing the infection but maybe it'll clear it up. I'll know later today if I'll get the prescription or not as I couldn't talk to the doctor myself. So I'll keep you posted on what's going on.

Hi Everyone,

Wrapping up a major painting project at home this week. I have finished priming my dining room and now I am ready to put the final color on it. While paining isn't hard the 10 foot ceilings make it a bit of a challenge and it is tedious, especially the cutting in portion. I am always glad to finish that part and do the "easy" part of rolling the walls.

Rain finally stopped (after 5.5 inches on my gauge) and it is cool and windy this morning. Cloudy too. After almost 24 hours of just about non-stop rain I am really ready for some sunny weather.

Hope everyone has a great Sunday.

Cathy
