Sat. morning and all is well and quiet. I have 3 days under my belt going without ice cream. I bought myself some snack puddings and keep them cool, having them at night instead.
Normal weekend here.

God's peace

Ash Wednesday- I gave up ice cream for the next 40 days. Only God can help me do this.
We are supposed to get snow again today but only an inch or so, I am tired of shoveling.
Have a great day-

Hi ladies,

We got hit with a foot of snow last night, so I spent time this morning shoveling us out.
Then my husband and I went cross country skiing for a couple of hours...love it! The sun was shining and the skiing was great. Did a 6 mile trek...kept up with the guys, so my working out is paying off.
We are thinking of skiing again tomorrow after church.
Have a good weekend. I agree...need to get this team motivated again...somehow?!

Saturday, I need to relax some. Work is stressful and taking its toll. Home life is stressful at times, it is hard when people don't consider others with their actions. This is when I need to control my emotional eating.
Each year at Lent I try to give something up-last year I gave up Milk Duds candy, I was eating boxes sometimes daily. I haven't had a Milk Dud since, I don't even crave them- Thank You Jesus. As I have been praying and thinking of what to give up this year and the same thing pops into my head Ice cream I have a bowl 90% of my evenings. This will be a tough test of my strength but that is what I am giving up. Please pray for me, I Love ice cream.

Today I will do the normal weekend stuff cleaning, laundry, making my menu for the week and I should go grocery shopping today as a big snow storm is coming in later today through Monday.
Take care

Hi ladies,
glad to see you posting- I just loved what this team was doing last year. Let's try and get this team moving again I am all in.
I am busy at work and tired when at home but still plugging along.

Ho Hum, another day at the coal face.
We had over booked clinics all day to make up for last week when everything was in survival mode after the floods. More of the same tomorrow! Thankfully for us, not for the women, not all of them came today so we didn't run too late.
Foodwise, I'm still behaving. Have a long way to go on the exercise front!

Hi there all,
I'm doing pretty well food intake wise and weight loss wise this year....Did I tell you that I put on heaps in the last three months of last year. Just couldn't seem to stop eating everything in sight and put on almost 1 kg /week on average! Back on the wagon. I've had an interesting past weeke. I'll copy and paste the last page of my Christmas letter which I've now actually sent out to all my friends......just to catch you up on the latest goings on in my life. It's all pretty dramatic.

"January Update:
Some may think this extreme, and they are no doubt right but I really did not want to move. (I'd been given notice as my land lord was selling.) The 4 bedroom stand alone unit I was renting was in a great location, so close to work and pretty well suited me…..well….yes …. even more room to accommodate my hoarding may have been useful but some compulsory curbing of that will do no harm!
So……I made an offer on the place I was renting and after some haggling I have a contract, signed on my end Friday morning. It was the most atrocious weather to be out in but I’m a New Zealander so I’m used to it. Besides it didn’t seem that bad. Well the weather didn’t get any better over the weekend. It turned out to be the beginning of a cyclone. The beach 16-20 km away was hit by 6 tornadoes in 24 hours and large areas devastated. Bundaberg (where I live, situated next to a river.) was thinking it had got off pretty lightly when the river started to rise……and rise……and rise……and it just kept on rising in a totally unpredictable fashion. Hence, we are in the middle of the worst flood in recorded history. Over 7000 people are displaced including many elderly and frail who are now getting sick in the evacuation centres.
The hospital has been evacuated and running emergency services only. 2 of the 3 emergency generators drowned and there has been a little water damage to the main building from falling water (not the flood.) Bundaberg received 480mls of rain over the long weekend.
Once the rain stopped of course the river continued to rise due to the heavy rain in the catchment area. Currently it is receding but the rumour mill is predicting another rise which may be even worse tonight!
I have a rather small culvert running behind my home which I watched fill and overflow and then gradually cover the paddock between me and it. I moved everything from the lower floor off the floor and what I could move easily went upstairs including my bed! (GREAT exercise!) Meanwhile, I’m wondering if buying this house was such a good idea and contemplating if/how to get out of the deal?!?!?!?!?!?! The waters came to about a metre below me. I’m taking heart in that it is the highest levels ever recorded and a metre is a long way….it didn’t feel that far watching it rise though.
SO the bottom line is I have survived the flood and I have a new permanent address with enough spare beds for your visits. "
Blessings to all
Margaret
This week:
Everything is getting back to normal at the hospital and people are trying to normalise as much as possible.
The town looks like a warzone and the army are here cleaning up but some homes will never be fit for habitation again. Some no longer exist - they were washed away in the 40knot waters that broke through the river bank and swept everything in its path.

BUT God is good. So many from church have amazing testimonies of God's keeping hand. One of the pastors house is in the worst hit area and yet pretty much untouched. Other houses in their street were completely destroyed. Their neighbours on all sides have major damage, with debris all over their yards and their house and yard look much like it always does. Another friend from church was in the path of 4 of the tornadoes. Every other house in the street is roofless and all they have is a bit of damage to their fence. Yes some from church suffered much worse but I still see the hand of God there.

Love you all
Keep up the good fight.
Margaret
So may YOU all be blessed and kept safe and strong.

I am just starting to find my way around and learn how to do different things. I joined, but had no idea what to do next.

Well, ladies, no more chatting to yourselves. Let's keep talking to each other and pushing each other towards our goals!!!

Have a Super night!

p.s. I'm down 1 lb this week! Yeah!!!!

The only difference between possible and impossible is the strength of one's determination.

***THIS IS FOR YOU, JESUS!***

Lol, love what you said...still chatting with myself. Not much going on except the usual day to day. Still cutting back on my sugar intake and getting my exercise in when I can.
I feel bad that our team has fallen apart, but a big thanks to those who keep checking in.

Hey all. I took a pretty large spark break but I am back around. Have been for a couple weeks or so. New Year does that.
Things are looking slow here but I will be checking in some as I try hard to undo the past year really.

I apologize for not being on our team site in quite awhile. I have only been doing the bare minimum on spark for the last few weeks.
I am doing well, eating better, getting in my exercise when I can. So I feel good about what I am accomplishing in spite of the busyness of my life.
The Lord is awesome and I am really trying to concentrate on getting closer to Him and getting spiritually "fit". To me, much more important than the physical.
Hope everyone is doing well and working toward reaching your goals.
Praise God, Karen

The weekend- I guess I can say that the first week of the new year is off to a slow start. I did track my food for 2 days, I did drink all my water daily. I have a walking club that I started work the clients of my job and I walked 2 miles our first night-(we mall walk)
Today I am going out for breakfast and shopping with my sister-I need a new winter jacket I have a big rip in the one I have now.

Tonight is the big game Vikings vs Packers--GO VIKES!!!!!

Happy New Year!!!!
I was working Christmas which was pretty busy and then went away the following weekend for a long weekend to my friend Julie in Brisbane. Some of you will have 'met' her when she was doing SP. It just wasn't her thing so she's not here anymore.
We did some bush walking and on the whole we ate pretty healthily. (She is weight watching and I was just being relatively good!) I started the 17-day diet yesterday to kick start my year. I am pretty pleased with myself. I had lost three and a half kilos since coming back from Tasmania mid December (can't remember if I told you I was going?) and I am only 1 kg more than that after all the Christmas/New Year madness. I'm expecting by the end of the week that will be off again.

Just before Christmas I found out I have to move out of my home. (it is rented and the landlord is selling.) It is so convenient and I will miss it. At the moment I'm trying to decide whether to buy or rent. I'm thinking renting in the meantime. I'm wondering about buying a block of land and building a dream house on it! Dreams are always free. (It's just the fruition that costs!!!!!!) Anyway that is the non-work focus of my life at the moment.
Packing everything up is such a huge job for this hoarder! Maybe one day I'll learn. Doubt that it will be anytime soon :)

My brother and his family have just told me they are coming to stay this year. (Sept/Oct) I'll take some leave and we can explore a bit more of this part of the world that I don't normally get to. Can't wait. Love that family!

Love you all
Do hope 2013 is all you need and want
Margaret
