Laurie, thanks for sharing, I can just imagine from that picture just what he was up to, it's nice when we see our DH interact with a little person again. It sure sounds like there was a good family visit all round. I am envious, I will have to make plans but DH hip has to be evaluated first so I am trying to be patient, I cannot go alone simply because DH needs me around and I prefer to be around he forgets too may things these days. He is my rock so I can always sort my priorites and he is number 1. I am hoping to do SKYPE with me so I can at least seea and talk to them. I might plan that for tomorrow after school,

Out bachelor son still lives alone, has a really good job but he is such a workaholic, I doubt he has much social life. He always insists it is what he wants to do so I rarely ask him about it any more not that I ever did ask very much.He is 44 years old so he is not a kid any more just still a loving son. Thanks again Laurie.
I am torn between ellipticals and treadmill our very old treadmill still functions very well. My DH has a problem knee too, he uses a gazelle and it does not hurt his knee. I have looked at but never tried elliptical . I am still having a good time walking really fast with Leslie Sansone. I never owned a DVD till Amy gave me one. HUGS Pat in Augusta emoticon emoticon

Congratulations. A wedding to look forward to. My son is 27 and we wonder if he'll ever settle down and get married. One of these days, I suppose, but not for the foreseeable future.

Yes, Mitchell sure is cute as far as we're concerned. After this latest visit, his grandfather is convinced he's a genius. Probably because Mitchell repeated everything DH said and even said things with the same 'tone' DH used. He was being a smart alec, just as DH was and they had a 'word war', DH would say something, Mitchell would stamp his foot and repeat it, then DH say something else and Mitchell would do it again and they kept playing that game for a while until Mitchell just starting laughing and couldn't go on. They'd get louder and louder until they were practically yelling at each other as they played and this is probably the first time they really bonded well. Not that Mitchell hasn't always liked DH, but after their foolishness this weekend, Mitchell will NOT forget his Grampa.

I'm exhausted now. I never want to miss a second with that little fella, so wherever he is, I am. He's so funny, he's always walking around chattering or singing. I watered my veggies seedlings and showed him what I was doing and I think it was the only time he was quiet. I told him what I was doing and he was fascinated with it all, watching me so closely, saying "water", but otherwise, not saying anything. Next year, I'm going to give him something to plant and grow of his own. He'll be 2 and old enough, I think.

DH and I are looking at ellipticals. I want to buy one. I love using the one at the gym, but so many days, I have things to do at home or errands to run and I hate having to run errands when I finish at the gym and I'm sweaty and/or out of breath. DH wants to work out and he did want to get a treadmill....neither of us want the manual one I have....but I told him I don't like treadmills and the elliptical would be so much better on his knees. I think we should get one this week. No time like the present.

Hello All,

I am so sorry that I haven't been on more often. I hate to say that my computer is acting up. When it feels like it it will just shut off. It doesn't make a difference what I am doing. I have to save all my typing almost for every sentence that I type because if I don't then I lose everything that I was typing and it is making me really angry.

Right now we can't afford to buy another one or too put this one in the shop. I don't know what I am going to do. I will just have to take my chances and use it until it dies permanently. I also have been trying to save all my files off of it too. That is also giving me a hard time. It keeps giving me error messages. We are going to go and get a better CD that goes faster to see if that is the problem. I don't want to lose all my work that I have on this computer. This computer is really old, it is around 11 years old. We have practical rebuilt it with all of the repairs that we have done to it.

I will try to keep you all informed to what is going on. I might just be able to put up a blog or something.

My leg is still pretty sore/painful. I am wearing my compression stockings all the time. When I don't have them on my leg turns to a dark purple color. It really doesn't look good at all. I am going to call the Wound Center tomorrow and see what they say about it.

Hope everyone is doing ok, I wish that I could spend more time here with all of my wonderful friends that I miss so much.

Best wishes to you all.

Your Friend, Dot


Best wishes to all!


I will keep you all in my Thoughts and Prayers

Thanks Laurie, I remember when he was born and I saw a picture of him. Later I commented and you put up another picture because he had grown so. He sure is a handsome boy.
Our jouney,to the nearest one is over NH and Vermant then Lake Champlain. It is a day to get there because we both like our stops but this weekend I am hoping to be there. The first opportunity this year since there was so much snow and probably floods in Northern VT.
The campground in New York where we usually stay was under water and closed the entire year. We are expecting it to still be that way so we need to find another one. That is just over a mile from their home on Cumberland head in Plattsburgh NY.
Take care have a fabulous visit it willl be nice to have a mini-family reunion and lots of friends Have FUN. Take care. Pat in Augusta emoticon emoticon

Pat, Mitchell turned a year old on April 5. We traveled to their place for his birthday and they had a huge party....they have a ton of friends. They actually live 4 1/2 hours away, so it's quite a hike, but one of our nieces is having a baby shower this weekend the relatives who we know will be there haven't ever seen Mitchell and DD put in a lot of overtime at her job this week. She's able to take Friday off and this is the family's opportunity to get to see Mitchell. I'm the one who usually travels to NH to see them. It's easier for me and yes, 4 1/2 hours is so much closer than across the country like I know some are.

Looks like a beautiful day for today. I'd love to be out in it, but another work day.

Laurie

REL I hope DH is feeling better by now. It sounds like you had an interesting day , I hope so.Dot I will catch up with you some time soon I hope you give us a headsup about you wound center visit. Hopefully you will not need them soon and you can enjoy the summer . HUGS Pat in Augusta.
Miss Jean how old is that little person now. Its great you are close enough in distance to be able to have them to visit.
Once they are in school visits are much more difficult to set up. Great to connect with you again I always miss this post, I do not mean to I just get moving around the site. I really should do better . I hope you have a more productive day tomorrow, Take care and have a great weekend with DD and GS, HUGS Pat in Augusta.

Last week I was so busy with projects and I accomplished so much and so far this week I've been doing nothing. I'm back at work, but I sit at a desk during the day and even then I'm having a slow week. I'm just not doing that much and by the time I get home, I'm actually exhausted from doing nothing.

I told DH that we need to get an elliptical. He wants to run, but his knees have just started to bother him a bit. Not much, but he feels them from time to time. I told him this would have no impact on his knees and when I've gone to the gym...something I should do again...that's the machine I want to use. I hate the treadmill and I'm not crazy about the bike. We have such terrible black flies here that walking can be miserable, not fun. Now to narrow down what we want.

Rel, I hope you both feel better and get back to normal.

Dot, I hope the visit to the wound center goes well for you.

I'm going to get busy when I get home. Not with real exercise, but I do have to scramble around and get things ready for DD and our grandson to visit this weekend. Should be great fun.

Laurie

Good afternoon - and a lovely day it has been. Bank yesterday from a week of vacation in Vancouver. Tried to eat sensibly, although not always successfully (wine and french fries called my name...), and walked my feet off all week. We were right down town and lots to see within walking distance.

Rel - most of those fitness minutes were from walking all over every day last week. Sadly, back to work today, so the minutes will diminish greatly...

Holding steady weight-wise and so busy there is little time to do more than post water and fruits/veggies each day.

Hope you all are having a wonderful spring!!

Hi team!

Dot, I hope you are feeling much better today! And that your visit to the wound center went well. I am glad you have a chance to stop in now and again to say hello.

Serena, I hope you are having a good day as well! I hope we see more of you the threads. This is your team, and I am glad to see you posting. emoticon

Not much is up today. iIve had the day off from work. DH isn't feeling too hot. He didn't sleep much last night. So, I've been doing laundry, playing with the cats...I think they've enjoyed having me home today. lol. And been going back and forth between a book, FB and SP. And not much more but the same for this evening. Except to watch the Biggest Loser.

Have a good evening! And a great tomorrow!

Hello All,

I am sorry that I can't stay and read all of the posts of my friends and see how their day is doing.

I am not feeling all that well myself today. I am having a upset stomach, headache, and a lot of pain. I think that weather has something to do with it. We are having rainy weather for about 6 days. I am not looking forward to that.

I have to go back to the Wound Center tomorrow. I am almost sure that it will be my last visit. Then I can concentrate on getting back to some kind of routine.

I want to thank all of you for being there when I need you. You all have really helped me through this very tough time. You are all so great.

I am going to go and lay down for a while and see if I can get to feel better. I just wanted you all to know that I was thinking about you all and was hoping that your day would be a good one.

I will be saying prayers for all the ones that are having a tough time. I am here for any one that needs to talk.

Hope you will enjoy your day.


Best wishes to all!


I will keep you all in my Thoughts and Prayers

Good evening! How is everyone doing? Not much happening here. Been forced to lay low today by DH. I coughed all night, didn't sleep much. This morning, I took a shower, and wrapped in a towel, and my head wrapped in a towel, I laid down for a moment, and fell asleep. You should have seen my hair when I took the towel off! lol. Even the cat thought I needed to stay put, and laid on my chest. He does that. Funny thing, he didn't lay where it would bother my breathing, and with the weight of him, he's a 14 pounder, I didn't cough under his weight. he's such a good boy. DH woke me up. I think we, me and the cat, made him nervous. Me wrapped up in towels, on the bed, feet on the floor, eyes closed, cat sitting on my chest....

What a nice day we've had today. I thought it was supposed to rainy, but we've had sun most of the day. It's getting really windy now, so the rain might be coming.

It's been a wonderful week, though.

Rel, during the summer months, I'm inside more than I'm outside, because I can't stand the heat and I just melt in any humidity. This week, though, I've been spending a lot of time outside. I've also had my windows open all week and I had to shut them up. I think that's because I still have DS's two little dogs here and our pug and among the 3, there are more allergens inside my house than outside and my doc thinks they are one reason my migraines have been worse. Could be.

I'm also inside an office all day long, so with the chance to be outside in the fresh air that's not clogged up with humidity has been wonderful. I'm loving it, even if it just to walk around the yard for a bit. It has been a glorious week and I'm loving every minute of it so far.

Gus is a very big boy and when he paws me and I'm not paying attention, he can knock me off my feet! He doesn't do it all the time, but he really thinks I should pet him when he's next to me and I've been doing all sorts of things outside that have nothing to do with him.

Time to get dressed and get busy with my day. I think this is going to be our last sunny day of the week and I want to enjoy it. Great day to everyone!

Laurie

Laurie, that is funny that your newfie paws you. I get slapped my my male cat all the time, and when my female cat is on the back of one of the chairs, and I walk by, she'll give me a slap too. lol.

I hope you are all enjoying this nice weather! Me, I'm content to be in the house. I never use to be this way.

I've been busy with tons of jobs around the house, a lot of basic household stuff and then other jobs that I just seem to pass by because I don't always have the time. I have the time now, so I've done some and today I'd like to wash the mini blinds. At least get some of them done. I can feel the pull in some of my muscles, since I've been squatting and bending and moving in ways I don't usually have to.

My newf loves it, because I'm outside with him so much, but he's really not much help to me. He thinks I'm home for him and if I'm actually working outside and ignoring him, he hits me with a paw to let me know he's there. His paw is as big as my entire hand when open...including the fingers...so that's quite a whallop!

I've lost 2 lbs from just working around the house. Too bad I can't put it on my tracker, yet. I've gained back so much weight that I have a lot way to go before any losses can be tracked, but I like seeing this.

Good evening!

Hi Diane! Yes I remember you. lol. We pulled you up Mt Katahdin in an inner tube didn't we? and we all hopped on when we reached the top, and slid back down. lol. Sorry your foot isn't any better. :(

Tee, my plans for today was to drink all my water, and get 30 minutes of exercise in. I got both in. I didn't plan goals for the month. I know....boooo! I do well to go day to day. I am not a beach person, but I could stand a week with my fanny in a beach chair right now. emoticon

Good Morning All,

I'm trying to get back on track here. I've had a very busy two weeks and had to make me and SparkPeople a low priority for a bit. But I think things are slowing down now and I can be here more often.

I started the "Digest Diet" today. It's a 21 Day eating and exercise plan. It's by the author of The Flat Belly Diet who is the editor of Reader's Digest magazine.

What a beautiful day today. I'm hoping to get outside and putter around. I'll be going for a nice long walk later with my DIL.

What are your plans for today? What are your plans and goals for April?

Saturday started our April vacation and I was busy all day. I expect the same today. I was feeling very good. I had a nice talk with my doc. She gave me back my good meds for my migraines, so if I do get one, I have something to take that will knock it out. She's also increased my preventative, so hopefully, I won't get them...or so many...in the first place. Now I should feel like doing more.

The only problem is, I can't sit down once I get started. If I do, I fall asleep. I know that being active and/or exercise is supposed to give you more energy, but all it does is make me tired. I've learned that once I'm in motion, I have to stay in motion or at the very least, stay upright. I sat down at 3:00 and fell asleep until 3:30. Can't do that.

I did get a lot done yesterday and I'll do a lot today. No formal exercise, but with all the cleaning and moving and repotting of some very big plants outside, I'm calling it exercise. My quilts have all been washed, hung on the line and are back where they belong. What a great day for that. Should be a good week.

Laurie

Good morning! Well, I made it through Friday the 13th without a glitch. lol.

Laurie, you slug you! lol. I hope you got some answers from the doc. Have a great weekend! It is going to be so nice out..last I heard.

Pat, sorry your computer was down. I would be lost without mine. lol. I've been trying to get away from it for longer periods of time, so I've been reading. I have found that between SP and FB, I am just way to nosey to really get involved in a book. Which is sad, because I love to read.

Have a good day!

I've been so bad and this is my first post of the month. Once again, I've had too many migraines this month. Finally, I see my doc today and we'll see what we can do about them. Wouldn't you know, I've felt much better since Friday, so I have to remember to make sure to tell her how awful I've been feeling and not just tell her that I feel really good today! We need to make some changes in my meds.

Last weekend, DH and I were in NH celebrating Mitchell's 1st birthday. Now that was fun. He's changing as we watch him. Walking, talking, teasing. He has the best personality, with a bit of attitude tossed in. We're both having Mitchell withdrawals right now, but DD said she'd come up for her cousin's baby shower, so we'll see them at the end of the month.

With the migraines coming, I have still been very bad, not exercising as much as I should. I do what I can, but some days I'm a slug. April vacation starts this weekend and I think it's going to a sunny start. I want to do some yard work, more work inside the house and it's time I get out to do more walking. Serious walking. Time to get moving.

Hi everyone, Here it is already April 10 and this is my first post of the month. Not sure what I have been doing but I will try harder to get here more often.

Well, I did it! I signed up for the Fit at 5 5k which is on June 30th! Now keep in mind I am Not a runner but thought I would give it a try. A good goal to work towards. My 25 yo daughter is going to do it with me. She ran track and cross country in HS. Hope she doesn't mind waiting for her old mom. lol

I see you guys are doing a walking challenge. Guess I will head over to that thread and join the crowd!

Good morning! So...how'd you do with all the Easter candy? Did you eat enough of it that you need to work it off? Luckily, there are no kids here, so that means no candy.The store will be busy this morning with ladies looking for the chocolates that are on sale. I hope they buy it all before I get out of work. lol.

Have a great day!

How is everyone doing? It's been a busy week. At Hannaford, and with Craig's baseball tryouts. I got nailed in the butt tonight with a baseball. lol. I don't think I will bruise like I did last year. haha. I had a couple of good ones.

I hope you all have a good Easter Sunday!

Our team virtual walk leaves Monday!!! We leave from Orlando Florida, and we are walking to Cancun, Mexico!! I'll be posting the thread tomorrow (I hope to, anyway) with how the walk works. SEE YOU THERE!!

Good Afternoon - just got home and need to start supper but thought I'd pop in for minute. I got out of work early, but had a couple errands to run. When I got home, dear old dad asked if I would take him to visit his sister. Now normally DOD gives orders or demands things and then I REACT and refuse and we get into an argument that no one wins. This time, because he actually ASKED nicely, I agreed to take him for a visit. I'm glad I did. We had a great afternoon laughing and visiting with my aunt and her daughter, my cousin, who was visiting also. While we were there, the nursing home had an Easter party and we got to stay for that. The staff had made little bunny cupcakes and served them with a scoop of strawberry ice cream. By the way, my aunt is 103 and my dad is 90. There were 9 children in my dad's family. Dad and Aunt Gert are the only ones still living - the oldest and the youngest.

Rel, I stopped at Hannaford's in Augusta this morning to get my prescription and also to pick up a couple things I remembered I needed for Easter dinner. I walked in the store, took one look at the lines at the check-outs and decided to get my prescription and get out. I'll try to go in very early tomorrow morning to get my few things.

Sandy, hope you are feeling better.

Pat, did you get caught up on your sleep. How was the game?

Off to make supper. Be back later.

Good afternoon! Had a short day at work today. And weren't we busy!! Holey shmoley! It was as busy as it is the day before Thanksgiving and Christmas. It will be busier tomorrow. The why will be 2 fold, 1, because Sunday is Easter, and 2, we are closed on Sunday, so there will be panic shopping. All I have to say is...good thing there isn't a snowstorm coming! You wouldn't be able to get near the place if there was. lol.

Tee, I do that often, think I hit post, and hit the close button instead. It is very frustrating. Hoping you got the more quiet day you were looking for!

Pat, I hope you had a good day at work.

Craig has baseball tryouts tonight. Not sure when I will be back. Have a good evening!

Good Morning,

I stopped in here last night for a few minutes just to catch up with you all and wrote a short post, but it's not here. What the???

Anyway, I've been crazy busy for the last couple days, but things should start slowling down so I can catch up with you all.

Heading for work soon, but only working 3 hours today. See you all this afternoon.

Busy day at work today. It being Easter week. Selling lots of hams, and a few turkesy. it will be busier tomorrow, fo rsure!

Samdy, IO am glad you went to the doc. Glad you are on meds.

Mary anne, did you get to thte store? what flavor did you get? I lookef for other flavores ar our store, and they have just the basics. I was not impressed. How many different kinds of chocolate do they need to carry!

Pat, glad you had a good time. I bet you took a nap, or you are going to bed early tonight.

It is on the warmer side of cold today,e ven with the wind howling like it is. I saw abut 10 snowflakes on the drive home from work.

WEll, i guess I ddn't do tooo awfully bad with the typos. lol. I just got tired of changeing the 7 mistakes, and said..."leave 'em." I promose to change them next time. I'm thnking I need a nap.

You guys are making me hungry.....I'll have to go to the store and pick up the ingredients. I want to try it with either carrot or lemon cakes!!!

Sandy, hope you are feeling better soon and the antibiotics knock it right out of your system.

Hi everyone,

I did got to doc this morning, you name it I seem to have it! I now have antibiotics to knock it all out! Hoping in a couple of days I will really start to see a difference.

I did the 3-2-1 cake with double chocolate. I am looking to try lemon next time. I envision it with a couple of fresh strawberries and a squirt of whipped cream! I think the chocolate will last forever though!

I would love to go to the flower show, but think I need to stay home and get back on my feet.

Nice to see everyone in this thread! Have a great rest of the week!


Sandy

Hi Mary Anne! I made the cake with the strawberry cake mix, and I bought carrot cake cake mix today. My next will be chocolate. Then I will have a trio to choose from. Now, I am one, if I have a full size cake in the house, I will eat it just to get rid of it, so it won't be around tomorrow. I haven't made a 1 2 3 cake since Sunday, and the baggie is on the sideboard. And it has the texture of Angel food cake, too. Put of dollop of cream in a can, and wha-la!

Glad to hear your Mom is feeling more like herself, and your Dad is feeling better about it. And I loved seeing you. I had been a while. emoticon

The flower show is in Bangor this weekend. Maybe just Saturday? Not sure, wasn't paying that much attention. they didn't have it last year. It got cancelled, but I don't remember why. Ha! I'm full of knowledgeable information, huh? I feel like I sprained my neck. Maybe I slept wrong last night, and i'm just starting to tighten up. Not sure what is up. I'll take some tylenol, plus one more, and go to bed early.

Have a good night! I work 7-2 tomorrow, and Hale has a doc appointment at 4. It will either be really early, or really late when you see me tomorrow. lol.

Hugs!

Ha, Ha...I'm still trying to get caught up on spark. Rella, glad you liked that recipe. I haven't had a chance to try it yet but I've always loved Angel food cake.

I was up in Maine for a week and got to see Rella twice. She and Hale were there to support me during a difficult time. Mom is doing great after a very scary episode. This has in turn helped dad to feel better.

I've spent the afternoon working out in the yard again. My cherry trees will be blooming shortly and I can't wait for that blanket of pink. I have a picture of them on my spark page. I just with the flowers lasted longer.

Have a great night everyone! emoticon

Have fun Pat!! Enjoy the game!

Sandy, I hope you are feeling better today. It stinks being sick.

I am off today. Thinking Hale and I will go to Bangor for a few hours, just roam around. I found an old book, printed in 1911, by a publisher who no longer exists. I've been looking for a place to take it to see if it was of any value. All book appraisers are in the Portland area. The computer said there is a bookstore in Bangor that might help. Bett's. I wonder if they are still open. Bookstores are dying left and right.

Hooray for art class! emoticon

I am on my 12th day of a sore throat/cold/cough virus. It is really dragging me down. I seem to gain a little each day, but it is still very much in the forefront! The plus side of it is that I am not craving much of anything, Keeping food healthy had been pretty easy!

I have a goal of entering 'one'derville before I turn 60 in June. That gives me 9 weeks to lose 12 pounds. It is very possible. But I will be content to just keep making progress in the same direction. I am just too old and wise to set myself up for failure any more!

Hopefully I will gain some strength and be able to go for some walks soon. Right now, I have no energy! I am doing well to make it thru the work day and crash for the evening!

Hope you all are doing well!

Sandy

Good morning!! Well, during class last night, the adult ed director came in like he does every week, and we gals asked if it had to be the last night. He said the programs didn't run through the summer. We told him that it was only April 2, and we are only talking through May. Well, he asked Scott, our instructor, he said he was good with it, and he said he needed at least 6 interested people. 6 hands went up, 2 were mine, because one girl went to the ladies room. He said he had to go crunch some numbers. He came back, and said he can extend till May 14th!! He had a room full of happy ladies!!

Tee, I hope your Planning Board meeting went as well as my class did!..but a short one! lol.

Have a good day!

Chickwit- Sounds like a great goal! :)

It is a beautiful day :) Just got a little darker and breezier a bit ago but I still need to make it out for a walk. I'm thinking I can squeeze in a walk before dinner :)

Teammate MILLISMA posted this recipe on her SparkPage. It is rather yummy! I made it today with Strawberry cake mix....

3, 2, 1 CAKE
These individual little cakes are amazing
and ready to eat in one minute! They are perfect
for whenever you feel like a treat without all the fat
and calories that cake can have. Genius idea!

INGREDIENTS:

1 box Angel Food Cake Mix

1 box Cake Mix - Any Flavor

2 Tbsp Water

Makes 1 serving.

DIRECTIONS:

In a ziploc bag, combine the two cake mixes together
and mix well. For each individual cake serving, take
out 3 Tablespoons of the cake mix combination and mix it

with 2 Tablespoons of water in a small microwave-safe
container. Microwave on high for 1 minute, and you have
your own instant individual little cake!

KEEP remaining cake mixture stored in the ziploc bag
and use whenever you feel like a treat! You can top
each cake with a dollop of fat free whipped topping
and/or some fresh fruit.

Helpful Tips:

This recipe is called 3, 2, 1 Cake because all you need to remember is:

3 tablespoons mix,
2 tablespoons water,
1 minute in the microwave!"

TRY various flavors of cake mix like carrot, red velvet, pineapple,
lemon, orange, etc. Just remember that one of the mixes has
to be the angel food mix; the other is your choice.
The flavor possibilities are endless!

NOTES:
The best thing is, you open both cake mixes into a gallon
storage bag, one that 'zip locks' or 'self-seals', or a
container that seals tightly, shake the two cake mixes to
blend and then make the recipe. Storage of mix is simple,
put it on a shelf. No need to refrigerate, since the mix is dry.

Always remember, that one of the cake mixes MUST be
Angel Food. The other can be any flavor.

I joined the BLC18 challenge. It was one of the best SP moves I've made for myself. It got me pointed in the right direction again. It was just what I needed. I can't wait for BLC19 to start!

For anyone looking for a great challenge, BLC19 will begin on April 25th. Sign-ups are happening now.

How often have you wished you could find something to help you with your "stick-to-it-ness"? Have you found that you LOVE Sparkpeople, but have just hit a lull and need a little extra something?

This 12 week challenge places you on a team with 30 other members who are all working toward the same goal - to lose weight! By setting a 12 week goal, and weighing in each week, you make a COMMITTMENT to yourself to DO something. At the same time, you socialize and make lifelong friends who will help you on your journey after your 12 weeks are over.

This challenge is tried and true. This is our 19th round and our 5th year. We have lost THOUSANDS of pounds together. There are a wide variety of groups, personalities and committment levels - and you get to choose 3 that you like best. When you use the link below, you will visit a thread to read about each team, and then sign-up in the registration thread and list 3 teams! Make sure to read the rules, they aren't too heavy, but we DO expect a committment. We promise that if you put in the time, you WILL lose the weight.

So, what are you waiting for! Come join the BEST 12 week challenge in SPARKPEOPLE! :-)

Good morning all. Congrats Tressa.

I am hoping to get out today and do some 5k training. I'm definately mixing things up a little in hopes to brake through the wall I've seemed to hit.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Happy April! You ladies are right! Time to start fresh, new routines, new ideas, keep things interesting :)
Sandy, it's good to see you! Your profile pic is cute! :)
Rel, you have definitely kept your spark, and your a great leader :)
Tressa, looking forward to getting to know you! :)

I hope you all have a great sunday! Saw some frost out there this morning, I'm hoping my baby carrots are okay as I left them out last night :/

from Jan-the end of march I'm down over 30 lbs :) I hope that by my birthday in June I can be another 30 lbs down :) More would be great but 10/lbs/month is doable and by sept I should be at my goal weight if I can keep it up :)

Welcome to the month of April! Spring showers and beautiful flowers!
A time of all things new and fresh! Do you need to freshen up your goals? Your food or exercise plan? This is a great time for that!

Tee, I am so glad that you have agreed to be a team leader for us. Poor Rel has been flying solo for way too long!

Rel, you are one faithful Sparker and Friend!

Hugs
