Just got back from seeing the movie "Gnomeo & Juliet" with the family. It was a cute kid movie but I am getting real tired of spending an extra $2.50 per person to see these kid movies in 3D. . The 3D effects were nominal and just plain boring. emoticon
I did get in my cardio today even though it was not my day for cardio. And I will do my strength training this afternoon. I need to do both core and lower did upper yesterday. Other than that no other plans for today. School begins for the kids tomorrow so my routine will be somewhat back to normal. I am looking forward to it.

After a late night on Friday- I took Sat off. I will be back on track on Sun. Would have loved to be out shopping but instead spent the day doing laundry. Hopefully will finish up on Sunday after lunch with my parents.
Hope you all have a good Sunday.

Nick- good luck on the race!

Good Afternoon

Well, my family and I went out shopping today. We pick up a new microwave. Our old one still works Okay but it was getting so dingy that even when clean it looked terrible. Plus our circular dish has been gone for well almost a year now. So, after almost 12 years we thought it was time to say good-bye.
I was able to put in over an hour and a half of cardio plus worked on my arms. I plan on relaxing the rest of the day but maybe just maybe I might work on my legs and core. We will see.

How about you all? How are you spending your Saturday?

Hello everyone! I have been busy! I am hoping I get more time next week. We are finishing up February and marching into March! Let's go into it on a positive note! I hope everyone has a great weekend! I have a race tomorrow, so hopefully it will not take me most of the week to get the race report done.

Good Morning Team,

How is everyone doing?

It has been a tough 3 weeks. Between the family visit and my children being off I am so off my routine. I even forgot to weigh in this morning. Probably a blessing. Still I would like to know the damage so I may do so Saturday morning and between Sunday and Monday do my monthly measuring. Ugh!! emoticon emoticon

Take care,
Anne

Terry- enjoy the time with grandkids- they grow so fast.

I have been trying to get some of my spark challenges done in the morning before work. It's a little rush rush in the morning- but at least I have been able to get a least a daily exercise and huddle in before work. Gets me going for the day!! emoticon Hopefully it will last!

Good Morning,........How is everyone today?

Nell......let me know if you find more ways to fit stuff into your day, I need help with that too.

Aria.....feel better soon, allergies and headaches are no fun.

I am babysitting my sweet five month old grand-daughter today. Poor baby has a cough and stuffy nose but is napping peacefully right now. Yesterday I spent time with my other three grand-kids. I am blessed

ok, so i took a week off Spark.. ok so it wasn't a week just Sat through today... but it just felt right... I have been dealing with headaches, and allergies... and focusing on the computer screen has fallen low on the list... partly cuz i need my eyes checked.. and can't go do that until we get our tax refund as we don't have any health insurance right now...

anyhow... I am here, just short bursts... I am trying to make sure i at least log in daily and do the bare basics at least... I expect tax refund Friday... so hopefully soon after we will be able to get our eyes checked...

Blessings

Glad you are doing a bit better Aria- hope you continue to improve.

Getting ready to go out of town for son's basketball game His last night's game was a win so thinking today's will also be a win. Only a couple more weeks of basketball- so hopefully I can get back on a schedule for myself, at least before Track starts. (love being a mom!!)

Hope you all have a wonderful Sat- will check back with you all later this evening.

Understand about the weather... Nel, i hope you got some exercise in...

I am doing a bit better today.. but i ended up with a migraine on my left side.. those are the worse for me as they lodge behind my left eye.. and affect my speech, and my whole left side...

Finally got my neck to pop a bit.. and relieve some of it.. (so i am typing) but keeping it short
blessings... have a great weekend!

change of plans- since the weather is cold and crappy, I decided not to go out of town for the game tonight. Feeling a little guilty but will drive to tomorrows game.
Work was a little stressful today- guess this is when I can tell that I haven't been doing enough exercise- things just bother me that much more. Time to get it together and get more exercise in. emoticon emoticon emoticon

wowsie!! the food and veggies sound good.

We had burgers tonight... I cooked and drained the fat as i went... so i could keep the calories down.

I woke up with red swollen fingers, and knees. I so know about the feeling of bloating. I took my diuretic, and added a midol a few hours later and i still feel like i have sausages for fingers.

Blessings

Hope your stuffed peppers were good. I tried a chicken and asparagus recipe (from Sparks). My first time ever eating asparagus- not too bad. The best part is- the boys liked it!! Oldest one had seconds- said he liked the mushrooms and asparagus more than the chicken. WOW!!! Guess that recipe is a keeper.
Taxes got done today- yeah!!! Now I have to sit down and figure out FASA application (financial aid application for college for my son in the fall).
The next couple days are going to be spent running to basketball games out of town- so it will be a little crazy but I will check in when I get a chance.

Summer grilling sounds like a dream~~~~

Well, we did not have hamburgers yesterday...we had Chinese food. So, between the sodium from the Chinese food and aunt Flo's visit I am bloated!!! I may not weigh in Friday morning. Why disappoint myself last week the usual plateau so I am sure this week would be a weight gain. We will see sometimes I surprise myself.
Oh yeah, I made the stuffed peppers for tonight's dinner. Smells soooooo good.

How is everyone else doing?

I was going to my stuff peppers today but DH forgot to buy the ingredients. And by the time I got home from my daughter's play-date it was almost 3:30pm. DH said well why don't you go now and but the stuff? Ah because by the time I get there, collect it, wait on line, pay for it, and the drive home it will be almost 5pm and I still have to prepare...slice, dice, saute, etc... He made a face like it was just an excuse. He not really a cook and what he does make a dish here and there I am his "sue chief". And chances are I have already bought the ingredients in advance for him. Hamburgers it is!!!! emoticon

I so agree, I wish i had my children's social life (except for my son's ... he's not a social butterfly at all. )

I ran circles with normal errands today... doing my best to do what is needed and feeding the family right now..made home made corn bread, and steak.. with broccoli should be pretty good.

:) glad i helped you keep in perspective going out on Valentine's (something i rarely do).. but honestly the restaurants we saw were not very full... except the ones that require reservations anyway.

Aria- that is one of the main reasons I would rather eat at home than going out. You just never know what you are going to get when you go out and I just hate the thought of spending any money on bad food, or worse- getting sick from it.

Hi All,

Nell, so glad you had a great time. I need one of those as well.

Aria, sorry to hear about your evening. I guess staying home for me was a better deal! LOL!

I hope everyone else had a great day. I stayed at my children friend's V-day party and talked to other moms. It turned out to be fun between good conversation and watching our children play games and dance....I will say it again I wish I had their social life. LOL

talk to you all soon...

Hope you all had a great Valentine's Day!

I went out this eve with one of my house -mates, shara, to Applebees I had one of the worse meals i have ever had from them. The Manager took 30 % off our meal.. and tried to make it right.. but we agreed we wouldn't be doing that one again soon.

I left wanting to throw up ... partly cuz of the way it was prepared, and partly cuz my tummy does that sometimes... (there was a good 3-4 Tablespoons of butter on the Alfredo sauce... that had separated..) Anyhow... my g/f's salad chicken was so strongly seasoned she couldn't eat it all either...

So we had an ok Valentine's Day .... I will be making Dan a steak and Rice dish he asked for... Blessings

Anne, Yes I did make it to the movie. "Just go with it". Then the girls and I went to a Mexican restaurant for dinner and a margarita. It was a wonderful afternoon with friends. So needed.
The boys will not be home until Monday afternoon. Missing them lots but know they are having a good time with their dad's family.
Spent the afternoon, again, clearing more snow from the roof. A good 2 hours, in knee deep snow, raking off the heaviest snow from the roof. I am going to be so sore tomorrow. emoticon

Hello Team

Today day is the last day of week two for challenges...please log in. Monday starts week 3!

Terry: My brother and DH are bringing them to Chuck E. Cheese today to cheer her up for not being able to go to the party. As for V-day I know what you mean, we just thought since my brother was here we would take advantage of "free" babysitting!!! No big deal.

Aria: Sorry to hear about the computer but so happy you are back!!!! I missed you too!!

Nell: Did you get to go the the movies? Are your boys back yet?

I heard from Claire and Birdie the other day they are doing fine as well.

Today's plans:
DH, DS, DD & myself went to church this morning. I plan on doing strength exercises including the "Feature Exercise of the day" maybe cardio but doubt it. I am spending Sunday afternoon with my mom. So, I will fixed us a light lunch and then catch up on my DVR recordings. I might bring mom up to my home gym room. It would entail two flights of steps but bless her heart the woman may have slow down a lot but she still got it. Thin all of her life...always ate healthy always ate small portions and always loved to walk everywhere. {but then again Queens county had sidewalks!!!!}

Have a Blessed Sunday!

Good Sunday Morning, All

Happy your computer is up and running, Aria. I'm lost when mine is down.

Nell.....I have the same problem getting rid of things except for my old clothes. I know I culd so easily grow back into them if they were waiting in my closet.

Nick.....Five seconds is great! Congrats.

Anne....my five year old grandson has the same problem when is sister gets something and he doesn't. Regarding Valentine's Day.......I always cook at home. Going out is just too nerve-wracking......it always seems like the whole town is trying to get into the same restaurant.

Welcome back Aria! emoticon

Feeling very good this morning. Did a little cleaning of the closet and am getting ready to get rid of some clothes- why does that seem so hard??

Good for you Nick.

Terry- I went to see "Just Go for It". It was a pretty good funny movie. Then the girls and I went to a new Mexican restaurant- margarita and some nachos- yumyum!!! It was a very nice afternoon with friends. Now just me and and dog to do some more laundry.

Hello TEAM! The Valentine's Day 5k was a nice race. I did get a PR. It was only 5 seconds, but I will take it. I will get the race report done tomorrow. I hope you all are enjoying your Saturday! Phew! More fun to come for me this weekend. I think I'm going to do 12 miles tomorrow.

Good Afternoon Team

I just got back from my Zumba class. I left after 45 min. I wanted to shower before we took Logan to his friend's B-day party. I feel awful my little Sylvia is upset that she has no where to go. She seems to forget that less than two weeks ago she had 3 b-day parties and Logan did not care one bit. Oh Well she is only 5yo.

Any plans for V-day? I am still not sure if DH and I are doing anything. We might just wait for another weekend when restaurants are less crowded.

Good Morning, Team! I hope everyone has a wonderful and active weekend.

Nicholas.......I'll have my fingers crossed that you PR this weekend. Stay warm!

Anne.......I hope you go out as a couple, it's so important to spend time together. I know how tiring it can be caring for a parent. I cared for my in-laws and mom before they passed away. It is a labor of love.......

DeNell.......don't work too hard cleaning. What movie are you planning to see?

Nick- WOW is all I can say. It just amazes me how many people run.

Anne- think positive- you deserve a night out as a couple. Take the time.

As for me- the boys are gone for the weekend down to their dads. Guess that means it is time for me to do some heavy duty cleaning. emoticon

I do think I am going out to the movie tomorrow afternoon- and dinner after. Should be fun.

Happy SparkVersary to all member of Sp Class May 2nd - May 8th

emoticon job Nicholas

Terry: My mom does not live with us. But when she visits it is up to me to take care (wash her, dress her, feed her, watch her) like I would my own children anyhow. I don't mind it is just tiring.

Kids have b-day party and v-day cards to write out. We might go out as a couple...doubt it!

I hope to do very little this weekend except for a little exercising.

Hello TEAM! The 15k was an amazing experience. I have a 5k tomorrow and I hope to get a PR. We shall see. The trail may be covered in snow, but that's not going to stop me from running. Have a great weekend everyone!

Good Morning, Team.......

Anne....congrats on 30 pounds gone and your Sparkversary. I'll bet you feel great. I didn't know about your mom's dementia. Does she live with you? I hope the weather holds and your kids will be in school all next week too. I have no idea what we'll be doing this weekend, maybe that's a good thing emoticon

ABSOLUTZER0.......congrats on your 15k.....wow, is all I can say!

I am almost afraid to jinx myself but will there actually be an entire week of school for my children this week? Will I actually be able to hit the gym 6 days this week? One could only hope...

How is the rest of the week going for the rest of the team?

How is February treating everybody?

I reached my 30lb loss mark this month which was a nice present for emoticon !!
I have not plan anything special for making to my 9 month SparkVersary. How about any of you?

Terry:
I went to Zumba today and will be strength training this afternoon. This evening I will take my son to his religion class and my daughter to her dance class. I have my good friend coming over to watch my mom for us (I mentioned she has dementia right?) DH is going with my brother to BJ's so I must write down a list for them. And yes I also am doing laundry in fact load # 3 is about to be put in. Thanks for asking.

Hi team, sounds like everyone is doing well this weekend. I have been somewhat lazy again, busy with cleaning,laundry, scrapbooking and a movie with a friend. So it was somewhat of a fun day for me.

Everyone ready for some football, Super Bowl Sunday tomorrow!! I am not much for football but I have two teenage boys that love it so guess I will be watching it also.

I wish everyone a wonderful weekend.

Aria, I am so sorry to hear about your plumbing issues. I hope it is under control now.

I agree Nell, a nice quite weekend sounds heavenly!! I hope I get that too. But with my mom, brother and another brewing snow storm I am not counting on it.

It is now 11:48, the pipes in our house have now been fixed for a whole 2 hrs!!! Now we are trying to get the insulation, and cupboard to dry out.. (but Wal-Mart is out of space heaters)... and we are using a portable fan until we can get a space heater...

We had 3 pipes burst all on the back of the house... Dan spent most of the afternoon, dealing with it, before the plumber came out... to do the prep work so he didn't have to pay the Plumbers for a couple of hours for stuff he could do himself...

Hoping it will be a quiet, and warmer weekend.... I should be able to check back in tomorrow *Crossing fingers*

I live in Maryland and I think we may have been the only state not to get majorly hit by this huge storm! I am so glad...it's such a pain to get up in the morning, shovel snow, THEN drive to work and work all day. I wish companies just closed as often as schools...I need a break from work!!

Morning, Schools are Cancelled.... Meaning that Dan, and Seth are both have no work/school. Dan being a bus driver only gets paid for the days he works.. so this short month is gonna be even shorter.... good thing Tax returns are in....and coming soon!

I slept ok.. other than i seem to be turning off my cpap sometime during the morning... not sure when... I think it was just for a short time...

Anne: Yes i understand -- hope you are doing well, and the damage will be minimal!
mama: Yep it is cold, snowy icy, sleet... here too.. but not as deep.. you all.... but for Albuquerque, New Mexico... when we get it, it shuts a lot of us down... joys of being at a mile high...
All of ya :) Stay warm and dry!....

Yep, the northeast is being hit hard. I believe my brother told me that the last time NY been hit this hard was 1918? Don't quote me, because I can't remember for sure. My children are off from school again today! Even my husband stayed home from work. We were hit harder last week but this time between yesterday snow storm and last night freezing sleet it making the roads dangerous!

This makes is officially 8 days my children were off from school. Not to mention the two hour delays on two other days.

Besides cabin fever and entering stir-crazyvile...I concerned for my children having to go to school in the hot weather. There are no air-condition in these school. I feel bad my DH has to use vacations days for his safety. And of course the damage that is being done to our home. I can't even imagine. I hope it is minimal or non-existent. Still can't help but to worry until I know for sure.

Lastly, I miss the gym and forget the outdoor activities. Except for shoveling snow, which has hurt my back and shoulder especially the right side, I don't even think of going out there. Well, I did go out and make a snowman (more like snow-thing) with my daughter. My very active outdoorsy son would not even venture outside. He tells me, "Too cold mommy! And I can't even run around!"

Oh my.....it must be so tough on everyone who lives where there is so much snow. When I see the news I think of my spark friends. I am blessed to live in California where it is only windy and not cold by snow standards. Keep warm and safe everyone.
