Good evening everyone,

I am going to start something new that might motivate me. For every spark point I am going to add a penny to a jar. For every fitness points I will also add a penny. I'm thinking it might even motivate my son to work out also. He is always asking for money for this and that. I'm thinking that this will be a good way to earn the money he is wanting.

Had a good morning. We went to church this morning. This is the one year anniversary of the church being open. My son is looking forward to this Friday. The church is planning on a tail gate party while the home coming game is going on.

Exactly!!! And it didn't help that I didn't want to be at work, so my mind kept wandering, to food of course.

It's the premise of the carrot in front of the horse...you want food because you can't have it.

Why is it most days, I feel fine in terms of how hungry I am when it comes to lunchtime at work? But today, when I can't eat lunch as I need to fast for blood work later, I am STARVING and can only think of food. I was on Pinterest earlier and had to stop because all these good recipes kept showing up and it wasn't helping my hunger. It's going to be a long afternoon, even though it's only 3 hours until I get my blood work done

Much of the time, just getting the right diagnosis is all you need!

It is hot here, and I have been running around doing errands. Now I am ready to relax a little!

Did my second 5 K yesterday. Went walking on the natural trail with my son and his friend. At the end of the trail is a McDonald's. We were hot and soaken wet so we stopped and got a 32 oz water and sat to talk before starting back. It took us 89 minutes to do the round trip. That doesn't include the stop at McDonald's.

I found out yesterday why I haven't felt like working out lately. My thyroid blood test turned out to be abnormal. I called the doctor because she had sent me a script for a drug I didn't know anything about. The nurse was not available but the receptionists said you have high thyroid. She said the doctor wants you back in in 6 weeks for another blood test. I took the script to the neighborhood pharamacy. The pharmacists said this med is not for high thyroid but for low thyroid. I asked him what the symptoms were for low thyroid. He said tired, not sleeping well and depression type symptoms. He asked how I have been feelin'. I told him tired and just want to sit on the couch and watch TV. I know that I need to stay active and will get dress to work out but then wouldn't have the drive to complete it. Bobby told me that with the rx you will start to feel better in a couple of weeks. You will be running a squirrel and have more energy.

So my son said that he would like to walk his 2nd 5K with his favorite mom. I told him okay.

I hope everyone has a good time today with whatever you do.

I have been house bound--voluntarily--for the last two days. Yesterday was just chilling out, and today I did my housework this morning so now I will relax!

I'm hoping that today will be an eventful day. I'm supposed to go over to a friends home and help her with a party. She has invited 20 people to. My son is looking forward to it also. Summer vacation is also over with. With only 22 days til school starts, I have started buying school supplies but will have to wait til August 6 to get the rest. We won't know who Robert's teachers will be until then.

Hope everyone has an emoticon Monday.

Good Evening Everyone,

Today was semi lazy. I went to church with my son. Then we came back home for lunch then back out again. Today was community service with the church. Every 5th Sunday we go out into the community and help people with their laundry or lawn care. Some of us went and paid for people to wash their cars. Another group went and paid for sno cones for 2 hours and also handed out 50 gift cards at WVValmart with water or soft drinks. We arrived back home in time for me to start supper. Then sit down and watched the Olympic games on TV.

Hope everyone had a good weekend.

My foot was bothering me a little this morning so I did the elliptical instead of the treadmill. Had a good workout and have done a load of laundry, had a healthy breakfast and read the paper!

Hi guys,
Had a good weekend with the family. We went swimming on Saturday and then my husband decided to go to church with us Sunday. Yesterday I had an appointment with the doctor for a check up. It went well. I showed her the reports that I printed off of Sparkpeople and she said to keep up the great work. She told me that she doesn't want me going down to 110 but instead aim for 125. I told her that 125 keeps me in the unhealthy category. So I will see when I get down there. Still have a long way to go.

I went back to the clinic for a blood test after fasting over night. All that the tv has showed this morning is food commercials. Ugh. By the time I left the clinic it had been 14 hours since I had anything to eat. I was so hungry that I stopped at a convenience store and bought a sausage biscuit and a diet dr. pepper. I then came home and picked up my son for basketball practice.

I hope everyone has an Awesome morning with whatever you do.

So very hot. It is supposed to hit 100 today, but I am fine so far. I have the fan on because it is hot in front of the computer, and I am sure it is not comfortable upstairs, but I'm good.

Spent the afternoon at the peach festival in Clarksville. Was asked about 30 minutes after getting there if we would relieve the cashiers at the entrance to the kids area. I told Eric that Robert and I would but could only stay until 5 or 6pm. So after 4 hours I told my son that I was going to go and look for some cheap water. Some of the vendors were selling it for 5 dollars a bottles others were selling for 4 down to 2 dollars. I went over to the booth that was taking the profit to help build a new swimming pool at the high school for the swim team. They were selling water for 50 cents and diet soft drinks for 75 cents and regular soft drinks for 1 dollar. I went back to the kids area and my son said you didn't bring me anything. I told him that he didn't want anything and I wasn't going to buy him a regular soft drink and he doesn't like water.

About 20 minutes later our relief came and I told her that we no longer have any ones, fives or tens. She said that she would take care of it.

I hope everyone has a good evening.

I don't think so because it was directed to a different friend obviously complaining to the other person about me, however I was the only one who got the email. There were about 3 emails going around between the 3 of us and I think she accidentally wrote her reply to me instead of the other person. It sounded like they been going back and forth about me between the 2 of them and she may have accidentally written a reply complaining about me in my email instead of the other person's.

Just a head's up for people. If you're sending an email to someone and are talking about another person, make sure the person you're sending the email to is NOT the person you're talking about. Just got an email from a friend that was apparently complaining about me to another friend. I don't even think she knows it came to the wrong person. I didn't even know the thing she was complaining about was an issue for her (it really has nothing to do with her), but it sure changed my happy Friday mood to now being quite upset and hurt.

Good Evening Everyone,
My son Robert and I met my husband over at El Parian for lunch. We emoticon walked over there while my husband drove over. Then my son walked back after eating while we stayed and talked to friends.

After I returned home my son asked if we could walk a 5k emoticon tonight. That there are people gathering up at the University and walking to McDonalds. I said sure. I didn't know when I said yes that it was a night time walk that started at 8pm and ended when you got back to the starting line. I took my pedometer just to see if they were right at 5k. My pedometer measured 5.5k. The pedometer also said it took me 82 minutes to do the round trip. I have been wanting to walking a 5k so now I can mark that off my list. I am emoticon tired now but happy that I did that for my 12 year old son. Because we were not going to let Robert go alone because 1.8 miles of the trail is through woods and there had been rumors of a bear hanging out there.

I hope everyone has a good evening with whatever you do.

Good Evening Everyone,
Robert and I got up this morning and went to church. The old church we used to go to was like pulling teeth to get Robert to go. But now the new church he loves and cannot wait to get there. Steve keeps telling me that he is going to go but when Sunday rolls around he doesn't want to get up and go.

I have all my water in now and also stayed within the calorie range.

I hope everyone has a good time with whatever you do.

Until next time,

Good Morning Everyone!

I am pretty pumped today. We went to the bowling alley yesterday for Robert's weekly league. After getting there, we were told that Robert and one of his team mates came in 10th and 11th on the Arkansas State USBC Championship tournament last May. This was out of 1400 participates that signed up. Robert told me that he was a little disappointed because he didn't make it into the top 3. The top 3 got to go to Dallas for the Regional Bowling and then the top 2 gets to go to Nationals in Hot Spring.

Oh, so very hot!!

I have been running around all day. Went to the gym this morning and then to the doctor because, as a result of the antibiotics I was on for my sinus infection, I seem to have developed a UTI. Then to the grocery store to do some of my weekly marketing, then off to the pharmacy to get my RX. I'm tired.

Good Evening Everyone,

Spent the day with Robert cleaning the house. Robert did a good job cleaning the dinning room while I was still in the Kitchen. We are having Robert's Counselor over on Friday for a home visit so that is the reason for not working out right now but house cleaning.

Robert had an appt with the doctor at the Counseling clinic today. I was hoping that Robert could get off the ADHD meds today. At the end of the appt the doctor advised us that Robert has improved 100% since 2006. So the doctor told me that we can start winging Robert off the meds. I was thrilled about it.

We then went over to a friends (Debbie's) house. Her granddaughter is away at band camp and was wanting company. Debbie was thrilled with the info about Robert's improvement. She told Robert to go in and pick out a drink and a bag of candy. So Robert did and after 5 minutes Robert lost a tooth. Debbie told me that Robert will have to put that under his pillow and the tooth fairy will bring him something.

Tomorrow we are going to finish up cleaning the house and then I can get back to working out and ranking up points. I know sparkpeople says that house cleaning don't count as fitness.

I have got in all my water today and stayed in my calorie range.

Hope everyone has an Awesome evening with whatever you do.

Good Evening everyone,

Do you know when Biggest Loser starts this fall.

Today my husband decided to stay home an extra day from work. I worked out at the house while he took Robert to the gym and worked out.

Robert surprised me when they came back home. He brought in a diet Dr. Pepper emoticon . I told him I couldn't have it until I get in all my water. Because that is one of my July goals. Robert told me so you don't want it. I told him no that I will have it later today with supper.

I have started cleaning the house and getting ready for the busy fall and school activities. I figure that if I do a deep cleaning now that I can keep up the day to day cleaning every day.

I hope everyone has a good day with whatever you do.

I'm doing the same thing--I just finished season 4. Bob has said that he plans to stay with the show as long as it is on the air.

So this might seem silly, but I've been watching Season 1 of BL on Netflix and it's amazing how much Bob has changed! I wonder if he's going to be on the show next season. Does anybody have an inkling?

Hi guys,
Yesterday we spent the day getting ready to travel north west Arkansas to see a minor league team emoticon (The Naturals) emoticon . I had won a couple of 25 dollar gift cards to Steak emoticon and Shake emoticon so we went there to eat. Before leaving though I put in one and half hours of working emoticon emoticon out to help with the junk food. Robert was a little disappointed that he didn't catch a emoticon baseball. I told him that since we are sitting behind home plate not too many hitters foul off emoticon balls this way much.

Because of the drought we could not do fire works emoticon on the 4th. After the game the home team had a fire works emoticon program.

Today I went to the gym and worked emoticon emoticon out for another hour and a half. I stayed within the calorie range but am having problems getting all the water emoticon in.

We are looking forward to going swimming emoticon at a new lake this weekend. I told my husband that I don't know about turning Clarksvilles drinking water source into a fishing and swimming emoticon area.

I hope everyone has a good evening with whatever you do.

My regular gym is good already, in fact, they upgraded the equipment at Christmas. There were other reasons for them having to do some remodeling right now. I had hoped that this other location would be ok, because it is so close to my house, but it was pretty much what I had expected, and why I didn't choose it to join when I first got themembership years ago. It's all good.

Good Evening Everyone,

This was my lite day today. I work out for 9 minutes with the Biggest Loser on WII. I did 3 loads of clothes and one load of dishes. Now I am enjoying watching TV with my husband (Apachesteve). This is his first week at Sparkpeople.

Barbara hopefully your gym will be better than before when the remodeling is over with.

I hope everyone has a good evening with whatever you do.

I went to the gym this morning for the first time since last Saturday. It was tough and I didn't do much. Some of that was because my regular gym is being remodeled so I had to use another location, and frankly, it wasn't very good. Old equipment, very crowded, although it was really jumping!

Good Afternoon Everyone,
Yesterday I went to the gym and worked out. I rode the emoticon bike for 47 minutes. Attended the emoticon Silver emoticon Sneakers emoticon Class emoticon for one hour. Also did the weight emoticon machines for 40 minutes.

I'm getting ready to work out to the biggest loser on WII. Then I will have to take Robert to wednesday emoticon bowling emoticon league. The team that Robert is on won all 4 games today. I was proud of them. After that I will take Robert to his counseling session then back home to cook supper.

I have lost 3 more pounds this week.

Hope everyone has a good evening with whatever you do.

Good Evening Everyone,

I went to the gym today and worked out. I walked on the emoticon treadmill for 44 minutes. Attended the emoticon Silver emoticon Sneakers emoticon Class emoticon for one hour. Came home and did one load of Clothes and one load of dishes before going out with Robert. We went over to see how dad was and took him some peaches. He wasn't home so I left the peaches with the caregiver and she said that we have a celebrity in the house. She said that dad enjoyed watching the weather that Robert did on Channel 5.

We came back home and I started supper and now time to rest and get caught up with the teams and food logging.

Hope everyone has a good evening with whatever you do.

Good Afternoon everyone,
Yesterday was one long day. Started out getting ready for Robert's big day at a TV Station as a winner of the Junior Meterologist contest. I have written a whole blog about it along with the pictures if any of you are wanting to visit. I think that I over ate yesterday but don't know because we went to Golden Corral and didn't have a chance to measure anything. I also didn't go to work out yesterday since I thought I would get in some walking at the station. During a break my son and I played a little one on one in basket ball at the stations basketball goal.

Today has been a recovering day. So far I am doing good with staying within the calories and getting back on track.

I hope everyone has a good Sunday with whatever you do.

Sounds like a good idea! Summer colds are the worst and when you're feeling as bad as you do, it's best to get it checked out. Take care, drink plenty of water and get some sleep (I hope).

Thanks, Dragonfly. I had a problem with coughing all night so I was exhausted this morning again, but at least I didn't have the sweats. One thing I have noticed is that I can't hear very well--everything sounds very far away.

Hope your acquisition lunch went well...

My work just got acquired by a huge Dutch company and today is the official acquisition party. We have a company-wide meeting this morning, followed by a catered lunch. It will be interesting to finally get some information. I wandered through our cafeteria this morning, which is where the meeting is taking place and I saw a large table of champagne glasses. Looks like we're having a toast. Then out back of our cafeteria is 3 large tents for our big luncheon. We all found out about this about 2 months ago, but until the acquisition was completed, we have been getting almost no information. The only thing we're confident in is that they have no plans on shutting down our facility. While I know companies have been told that before and then a couple years later it happens, I do feel confident that they will not do that to us. We do medical products and to shut down our facility and move us elsewhere would be a HUGE undertaking, as there are so many FDA requirements that make it very hard to do that. Plus, this company has expanded there business elsewhere by acquiring companies and has kept those facilities open as well. Regardless, they promised nothing will change for the rest of the calendar year, we will still follow the companies current vacation schedule, pay, insurance plans, etc. I do hope we can find out what may at the start of next year as it would be nice to know of any big changes. Although I have a feeling all that will be hush as well. Anyway, a busy day ahead and I'm excited to find out what will be going on. Of course, my husband thinks he's funny when he keeps asking me if I'll get a pink slip at the end of the day, haha. Although.....then I could be a stay-at-home mom, which I would LOVE. I'd miss the paycheck though.

Hope everyone else is having a GREAT Friday!

Good Evening Everyone,

Today Robert and I went to the gym and worked out. I rode the emoticon bike for 62 minutes. Attended the emoticon Silver emoticon Sneakers emoticon Class emoticon for one hour.

Then I took Robert to Hibbet Sports to get a basketball for practice and shoes he will need this next year. He wasn't too happy when he found out I was putting everything in layaway. I told him that he didn't need the stuff until August.

We then went 30 miles to Russellville to go grocery shopping. Finally returned home at 7 pm.

Hope everyone has a good evening with whatever you do.

Oh Barbara, I'm sorry you are feeling sicker again. Sounds to me that rest is the best for your right now. There is times of sickness that you can still workout, but then there are times that rest is much better for you. I hope you can get over this quickly! Take care!

Well, I had a relapse last night and am wiped out today. I had to change the sheets on my bed this morning because they were drenched with sweat. And I could not get up. I had planned to go to the gym and do a very, very light workout but just couldn't. I have a feeling if there was something that I had to do, I would and I owuld probably feel better but I have the luxury to pamper myself.

Good Evening Everybody!,

Found out yesterday talking to a neighbor that he was robbed last week. They had gone to Peru to see his wifes family. Usually they come over to tell us that they are going so that we can keep an eye on their home for them. They didn't this time. I don't know if it would have made any difference or not. I wasn't home much with having to take our son to basket ball practice and going up to the hospital every day. The person or person's got away with $700 that the family left for a lady to pay the utilities with. All the rx meds that was in the house. The wife used to be a RN so some of the meds were pain pills and diabetic pills. Took a cell phone and keys to the truck which they couldn't get out of the garage. The garage doors has to be open with a clicker and the clicker was in Little Rock at the air port.

I have a ? for you ladies. I made 9 trips to the hospital and walked a total of 2 miles each to and from the hospital room. The tracker wants to know how much time it took me to walk a mile. I don't know. I didn't keep track of it when Steve was in the hospital. Would I put down the same amount of time it takes me to walk a mile on the treadmill.

emoticon I lost 5 pounds this week. I like one pound getting to oneder land. I cannot wait.

Today Robert and I went to the gym and worked out. I rode the emoticon bike for 19 minutes. Attended the emoticon Silver emoticon Sneakers emoticon Class emoticon for one hour.

I then took Robert to wednesday emoticon bowling emoticon league where they won 3 out of 4 games. He received his 1st place team trophy and trophy for highest scratched scores for 11 and under.

I hope everyone has an emoticon day with whatever you do.

I am feeling a bit bettter, and had a good night's sleep but still could not get out of bed this morning. I woke up coughing badly. Once that fit finished, I was wiped out and went back to bed. My problem right now is that one of my ears is clogged, I'm sure from the cold/sore throat.

Sounds as though your husband has changed his mind about losing weight.

I am still under the weather but there has been definite improvement. I didn't have the energy to do much this morning, got up very late and just changed the sheets and did a little spot cleaning.

The temp here in Arkansas was over 100. The A/C has been running constantly. We went to church today. After church I did three loads of clothes and after supper going to do a load of dishes. Went for a walk after hanging the clothes out. I am now tired and sore. Hope everyone has a good day with whatever you do. My husband just joined Sparkpeople. I wish him well on his journey. He asked me earlier today if it cost anything to join Sparkpeople. I told him no unless you want SparkLive.

Hi everyone,
I helped my son out side today with the lawn. Then we came in and I did a load of clothes and took them out and let the sun dry them. It was hot here in Arkansas today. My son was telling me if we could fry an egg. I told him no that is just a saying that people say when it is hot outside. My son asked if I was done with everything so that we could see a movie. I told him no that I have to do a load of dishes. He told me that he would unload the dishwasher for me. I love it when kids want to help. It gives me a chance for a teachible moment with him.

I hope everyone has a good everning with whatever you do.

I think he really don't care. He mentioned tonight that he guessed that he does need to do something but what. emoticon guys for all your encourging words and thoughts. Had Ladies Night Out tonight at the church. This month was Women's Self Defense night. One of the instructors asked me where Robert was. Robert used to be in Martial Arts under this instructor for 6 yrs. I told him that he is home playing nurse maid to my husband who has been home now for 2 days. It was fun learning how to defend ourselves against muggers and preditors. I brought desert home to my fellows afterwards. The guys enjoyed the cinnamon rolls and told Robert that the instructors said hi and that they wished that you were there. Robert told me I told you so. But I figured since it was Ladies night out they didn't want any boys there. There one lady that brought her daughter to it. My dad had to stay an extra day in the hospital. The nurses are now saying he is getting out tomorrow some time. PT was started on him Wednesday getting him up and walking around. Hope everyone has a good evening with whatever you do.

My husband and father have both been in the hospital at the same time. My husband had a 10mm kidney stone and my father is 85 with pneumonia. My husband had surgery yesterday and today is back home. The surgeon told me yesterday that he suspects that Steve has Metabolic syndrome.I asked him what Metabolic syndrome was cause I have not heard of it. He said that it is a umbrella for diabeties, high blood pressure, and over weight people like my husband (385). He asked if we had internet at the house. He said that if I wanted to know more about it look it up. He suggested sending Steve to a weight control center in Little Rock. My father is still in the hospital and won't get out until friday. That will be in time for Father's Day. I already gave dad his father's day gift though. I haven't even logged anything since Sunday or Monday. I hope everyone has a good day with whatever you do.

Until next time,

Sharon

Finished Season Three yesterday. Interesting seeing Erik thanking Bob over and over, but when they did that where are they now a couple of years ago, and Erik had regained so much of the weight, he didn't seem to be so thankful. I wonder if he did take it off again?

Hey everyone! I just got back from vacation yesterday. Good times, but as always, it went by too fast. I ate crappy for a week, but did TONS of walking. My DH and I are big walkers and would rather park our car once and then spend the day walking to see the sites. And since our trip from home to our vacation spot was a long drive (about 11 hours), while we don't mind doing that in 1 day, it's not something we wanted to do with a 4 year old and a 1 year old, so we broke up our traveling out and back over 2 days. That gave us time each evening to stretch our legs, so we did lots of walking on our travel days as well. The only thing that disappointed me was that about 2 months ago I bought a Fitbit Ultra, which I've loved, but on the 2nd day of vacation the dang thing stopped working. I tried everything to get it working again that I found on their website and in the forums, but nothing helped. Of course they haven't responded to my email I sent over a week ago, so I'm trying to figure out what is up. I was annoyed it happened at the beginning of vacation as I really want to record my steps and mileage each day to find out how much we did.

Just watched another episode in season 3 via Netflix. I am discovering that there are drama queens in every season...

I read yesterday that Jillian and her partner adopted a little girl and then the partner gave birth to a little boy.

I have been really busy and it looks like it is not going to slow down. I am eating right. Not getting the exercise I should working on that. Not getting on here the way I would like. Hoping in a little while thing will slow down.

Interesting point about bob being more laid back earlier. I started watching in season 5 and I believe the same thing. I also remember consistently Jillian always training the winner. I think what Bob found is that the people who come on the BL frequently (but certainly not always) want an easy fix. They want to change but don't really want to work so hard. Jillian always blew up that mirage early on with lots of shouting and breaking them out of their comfort zone. I know from Jillian's books she believes very much in shocking someone out of their comfort zone when trying to make a life change.

I think bob may have adopted that a little through the years.

The people that come on the show are not the usual person that would go to a high profile trainer. I think outside of the show someone that would go to a top trainer would be someone already in some shape that wants to step to the next level. These folks on the show frequently have not exerised for 20 - 30 years. To reverse that sometimes it requires a shock.

I'm watching season 3 on netflix right now. Interesting to watch. There were a couple of women who were so annoying. And Bob is different--seems more easy going.

That has become the norm. I heard recently that a lot of the shows are trying to figure out some way to more accurately compile how many people are watching a particular show, since most people don't watch at the original air date.

I record everything and never watch when it is on, I just don't have the time. So matter what is opposite of it I will be able to watch it.
