The treadmill: Love it or hate it?

Love it
Hate it
Other

I really can't say as I don't have access to one and have not used one.

The cards are mailed, as are the packages. All I have to do is pack myself and clothes, etc., to last for four days. We are visiting our daughter in Albuquerque. So...no decorating! No cooking! Yay! The outside of the house has Christmas lights all around, thanks to DH. I put a wreath on the door and a Santa Claus costume on the front porch goose. I am carrying Grandson #1's gift with us, but we will buy Grandson #2's gift when we get there. We will have to wait til after New Years to have dinner with our son and give him his gift because he is leaving town as we return.

All my decorating is finished. We send $$ to all the kids and grandkids since we are in TX and they are all up North in MN and WI. I have a few things to wrap, but feel pretty caught up. Next week will be my busy week - cleaning the house and making appetizers and food to bring to my mom for Christmas Day.

Are your Christmas/Holiday preparations about done?

I have some more to do but this year I kept it quite simple. My son and grandsons are getting money! I did very little decorating or baking. It's just hard to get into the spirit this year.

I grew up with real trees and preferred them, but we did break down and get an artificial one last year.

We think real trees can be hazardous if they don't get watered enough. We have an artificial tree that we keep year to year. Actually, it's permanently decorated.

Do Those who celebrate Christmas, put up a real or artificial tree?

I wasn't going to put one up this year but decided to put up my little fiber-obtic tree.
It makes my house a bit more joyful.

I do all the decorating inside - lots of decorations and my husband does outside with lights on Palm Trees and around the house and on some of the bushes and we also have a lighted Joseph and Mary and baby Jesus in the yard. When it's 75 degrees outside, it's not too hard getting outside to decorate. I also made 3 wreaths out of deco mesh for my door and 2 on the garage lights.

I've never tried any of those types of milk. I like just plain old 2%.

I've never tried any of these

The only one I've tried is almond milk and it's pretty good!

Wow, for me I don't think eating healthy costs more. We always shop what's on sale as far as meat, veggies, and fruits. And here in the Rio Grande Valley, everything is less expensive down here as compared to WI, where we are in the summers. I think if you shop right, you can eat health cheaper healthy junk food.

Yes. Poor children don't eat fresh foods very much. There were several kindergartners who were amazed at a peach pit inside the peach. The newspaper article had done a story on improving nutrition in the schools and included their picture and their reaction. Junk food costs a lot less.

Do you think it costs more to eat healthy?

Yes
No
Sometimes / It depends
Other

I think you pay more at the store for healthy food but when one considers the health benefits, that makes the cost less!

I have the spark tracker and I've been very please with it. I do have to re-classify my workout when I do the Leslie Sansone workouts, but that's not a problem.

I have both a fitbit and spark, but much prefer the fitbit to the spark! Perhaps its because I've used it longer, but it just works better for me! I've had for over two years and am for the most part very pleased! I'm hoping to get the upgraded FITBIT bracelet for Christmas!

As for the "spark" it was okay... but didn't seem to be as accurate as my fit bit, it ended up being "faulty"... returned it for a new one, which I've had for months and months and never even taken out of the package!

I used an Omron hj112 (I think it was) that only tracked numbers was very accurate but had to have a pocket or something on to clip it on. I just got a Garmin Vivofit bracelet/watch type fitness tracker and I LOVE it! I got this because it has the NUMBERS of steps on it rather than "dots" that light up for every 2500 steps...I want to SEE how many I am walking without getting on my phone or computer. It also has time on one screen, is water resistant, syncs to both my computer and my iPhone....goal is on another screen, miles on another, how many steps left to hit goal on another. It can be paired with a Garmin HRM (heart rate monitor) but I don't need one for what I do...can't run...and I just LOVE this thing! It's on my wrist so I don't have to have ANYTHING on to have it attach to.

I use a fitbit and a Spark tracker. Both are very effective and mostly accurate although the numbers are not the same on both. I think the spark tracker is most accurate as it doesn't track body movement from the arms.

Today's question is a bit different. For those of you who have and use a fitness tracker. can you tell us what you like about yours and what you wish it did or what you don't like about it. I'm thinking of getting one and would like to know more! Thanks for your responses.

Some of it's ok and I will eat it. It does satisfy my sweet tooth with just a little bit. But I will always love milk chocolate.
