Hi everyone! I have been fighting a sinus infection and a bad cough! I pulled a chest muscle from coughing so much....ouch! I still have the sinus junk, so my energy level is not up to par! But just wanted to pop in and see how everyone is doing. Happy March....spring is just around the corner! emoticon

Yes, being accountable is a big plus in staying focused. Is there anything we can do to help you with this?

Did you read the Sparks book? And did you enjoy it?

Hi wanted to ask for your guys help. See I lost my focus and got off track and I want to get back on track again.
I know that I am accountable for my actions and spark is the place to get help..

I also like the second part of beign accountable for our own actions. It's easy not to be but I take pride in owning what I do although many times wished I hadn't stuffed myself. I do own it and then get back on track. Life is a journey and each day if we pay attention we learn a little more about ourself and others. Have a blessed and healthy day! emoticon

Just checking in. A few days off and up in the mountains relaxing. I was able to focus on nutrition today and did well with healthy food. Tomorrow will work on the exercise as well. Just read, watched a movie and knitted. WOW...it was wonderful. I agree it's the now we should enjoy, not worrying about tomorrow. Appreciate what you have family and friends. Cherish the moments you get to spend with them. Enjoy the weekend. Might get some snow tonight. emoticon

Anyone who visits my page will notice how I try to stay positive in every day life.

So much going on in this world can be so depressing, but we need to stay positive and realize how fortunate we are.

Have a great Hump Day !

Good morning team. Hope everyone are enjoying Sparking.

I saw this on another team and thought I'd share with everyone here.

"Is your glass Half-Full?

Is your glass half-full or is it half-empty? Put a different way, do you focus on what you have (and staying positive) or do you focus on what you don't have (and being negative)?

This is extremely important and is one of the key factors in you being successful in reaching your fitness and weight loss goals or you giving up.

Today, if things go wrong as they often do, try to stay positive and focus on everything you have to be thankful for. If one of your biggest worries is whether you can fit in your workout, THEN LIFE IS GREAT. Don't overlook the fact that you being healthy enough to move is a true gift.

Spend today and going forward with a "my glass is half-full" attitude and watch what happens with your workout consistency and your results. Get ready to shock yourself with who you become! "

Have a great day !

Hi everyone. I snagged this from another team Alot are reading "the Spark" I haven't gotten my book yet but will definitely be reading it. The reviews are all good. Anyway, in the book it encourages us to make a motivational collage.... here's what I snagged from the other board on it:

per Spark - a Vision Collage. In it, you’ll find all of your goals and dreams. You’ll see what you want your future to be, and have a beautiful collection of visual goal reminders. Children are dreamers by nature. A little bit of arts and crafts fun like this may be just what you need to recapture some of that spirit and magic. The future is yours. Let’s find out what it looks like.


Here’s how to build your own Vision Collage:

(Supplies needed: scissors, glue, construction paper, a willingness to dream)

Collect a bunch of magazines, newspapers, family albums, calendars, advertisements, post cards, books, posters or anything else with pictures and big, huge words.
Find somewhere to be alone and pile them all around. Spend some time leafing through these materials. Whenever a picture or headline action word catches your eye, whenever you respond strongly, positively and instinctively to an image, cut it out or set it aside.
Once you’ve selected a nice stack of images and words, pick out the dozen or couple dozen that really represent something meaningful to you and your life. It could remind you of many things: a goal, person, principle, lifestyle preference, achievement, purpose, cause, activity, accomplishment, pastime, hobby or profession – anything that shows how you want to spend your future.
Get out the glue stick! Spread these pictures out on your construction paper to create a single collage (a single picture made up of a number of other pictures).
Hang up your Vision Collage where you can see it every day. Feel free to add to it whenever you like.
This is the collection of goals that gives you a clear direction and a motivating, energizing, kick-in-the-pants reminder. This is your vision. This is who you are.

Hi everyone, hope you are signed up for our weekly challenge. It's same as last week, but instead of doing a blog, you must visit 5 of our team members and give them a goodie, or comment on their page or their blog.

Sparks is all about support and it works both ways, receive it and give it !

have a great day !

Stephanie, I'm so happy for you.

I just became a motivator for Sparks in the fall, but never picked as one for the day.

Obviously they felt you deserved it and justly so !

So I guess I am the "Motivator of the Day"! I've gotten a whole bunch of notes of congrats and thanks on my page.

Only thing is, what does this mean? I thought it was the 'feature page' but that isn't my page. Where and how are people seeing this? Anyone know?

The notes have been so sweet, and all the 'thank yous' and goodies and stories have made me feel so good!

I love sparkpeople. *grin*

EDIT: I figured it out! And I have TOTALLY signed up for that email. Did I mention I love sparkpeople? What a great girft today!

Good morning. How is everyone doing with their program?

I've been doing good since New Year and want to keep the momentum going. I booked my trip yest. to the Domican Republic for one week in April, so this is just the motivation that I need to lose some weight.

I posted a new thread. Please take the time to go there and post.

Hi everyone. Well we officially got a foot of snow over the weekend. I was housebound until this morning, once the grader did our lane so we could get to our road, then I went into town and got groceries. it has been a really nice day, no wind and the sun is out. I helped hubby shovel when I got home so lots of good exercise there.

Food has been on target today and also did my Wii Fit this afternoon.

I went to the beach to walk yesterday, just like I did last New Years day, and smiled as soon as I hit the sand.

Then I got the urge to...jog. (Erm...wot?)

I am not a jogger. Nope. Nosiree. But it seemed like the thing to do.

I jogged about a quarter mile. Amazing what four months of swimming will do for your endurance (the last time I tried running I made it two blocks.)

And OMG, my calves are making me pay for it today. Running, on the beach, in wet sand, with no shoes.

Ow.

Good luck to you on the boot camp challenge.

I'm from Canada also, and yes they don't allow us to win on any of their contests.

Not sure if anyone knows, but my profile pic has me on the left and my friend I met from Sparks, we met for the 3rd time in March and will be meeting again in April. This time we are going to meet in the Caribbeans for a great vacation, so need to get slim and trim for that trip.

As always, I'm excited about a new start. I noticed (well my sister noticed and called me) the sparkpeople january bootcamp challenge, so for January this is my project, it's too bad that Canadians can't win the prizes, but the challenge is exiting.
Hope you all have a great start to the year.
Brr it's cold today, no exercising outside today, yay for treadmills.


What if the hokey pokey isn't what it's all about?

Hello team. I am glad to see that some are getting ready to work their program again.

I have some friends coming in tomorrow night and have some good healthy foods planned but also some unhealthy foods.

New Year's Day I will be much more stricter with myself, however I have done alot better since Monday.

No ideas to share!

We're getting back on track here. I think I may have gained a pound, I know I didn't lose any!

I'm looking forward to further progress. I may not be in too much as I really must spend less time in front of my computer!

Looks like it's been awhile since I've posted on this thread.

It's time to get back on track as the holidays are winding down.

I don't know how the rest of you made out over Christmas but I partied too much and am suffering for it. So am getting back on track. I plan on posting a Spark Mail to the whole team once I come up with a new Challenge to get the team back in action for January 2010.

If anyone has any ideas post them or spark mail me

I'm exhausted.

Retail (jewelry business).

I have barely worked out in two weeks.

Did I mention I'm exhausted?

It's almost over...

I usually barely find time to post what I've eaten and to track my exercise which is why I don't post msgs. But I'm on vacation now. I stayed at a B&B on the way from Palo Alto to Seattle, and the woman had a great set of phrases on her cupboard: "Do you love it enough to wear it?" "I've come too far to let a cookie be in charge of my life." I forget the 3rd one. Anyway, what I try to do these days is just have a small taste of some Christmas treat and then get busy with my hands doing something else. I usually swim for exercise but can't while I'm up here, so am taking frequent brisk walks (lots of VERY decorated houses in this neighborhood so it's quite fun) and will be doing some yoga (dvd on tv).
Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays to all. My nutritionist says that the goal for this season should be to maintain (not gain, not expect to lose) and that seems practical and kind to me.

Hi everyone. So sorry I haven't posted for awhile, just caught up in getting ready for Christmas.

One more thing to bake then gifts to deliver.

Oh, yes, I am working until Thursday noon before I can sit back and enjoy the holidays. And back to work on Monday.

Wishing all a Very Merry Christmas !

Good morning everyone. So how are we all doing?

I am taking time to enjoy the festive season. Yest. my husband brought home our Christmas tree, this year he didn't get one too big, it's just nice about 6 ft and not really wide. He put it up and then decorated it for me, all I need to do is put on the final touches.

So far our dogs or cats haven't bothered it.

today will be spent doing some cooking and wrapping. All gifts are bought so I'm doing pretty good as far as getting ready goes. That is a huge stress relief.

thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. Until mom gets her phone I must rely on my sister for any news of mom, as I'm 1500 miles away from my family.

Hang in there, Barbara. I have an elderly mom to take care of too. I don't think any of us ever expects to become the caretaker of our parents after they took care of us. I'm thinking of you.
