I don't like the cold and especially the shorter days. But I do like the fall. I don't really consider this cold weather too cold...now winter is a whole other story.

See ya all over at the new Coffee Hut real soon.

We have quite a few gyms to choose from in our area with one common theme - expensive!

I like cold weather. What I don't like about winter are the shorter days.

Rainy days make me want to curl up with a book too. Good job going to the gym.

Have a good day team!

Wish I was enjoying the cool weather with you guys. I dislike the cool/colder weather. Yesterday it was rainy and cool and I would have preferred to sit inside and read a book. BUT I did go back to the "no frills" gym. Yesterday was treadmill day- it felt really different on there. We tried to do our intervals (did some just not the full 45 min), I feel the need to hang onto the handles, hopefully in time that will pass.
As for a fancier gym- not in the cards around here. This gym has more than one treadmill, bike and elliptical- the other gym only has one of each. The only pool in town is at the high school. The disadvantage of a small town- very limited on things.

I love fall...the cool crispness in the air:) perfect for biking and walking!! Lots of homemade soups...fires in the evenings. Yep I love fall emoticon

We have a whopping 2 gyms to choose from. the YMCA...which is ridiculously expensive and open limited hours. And an even more expensive exclusive gym. So we walk and bike year round...barring a blizzard emoticon and do the videos on spark. Hubby has some free weights in the garage. I would love to join the Y for the pool...but the open swim hours are 5 am to 7 am...not happening.

Have a great day everyone!!

I too like the fall, in fact I appreciate almost all the seasons...not a fan of winter.

However, the allergens are tough on me this year in particular. And I always dislike the shorter days. I find it depressing.

Hi everybody emoticon

I love the fall! emoticon . The trouble is... the change of seasons seems to make me tired all the time. I don't know if it's the darkness coming earlier or all the allergens in the air. Also, all the extra traffic that comes with back-to-school. I feel so rushed and always like I'm forgetting something. But, still in the end, I love it! I can't get my mind off apple crisp! Anyone have a healthy recipe for it? emoticon

They call gym like that no frills or sweat gyms. And they are great too. They are usually less expensive and most likely closer to your home. I am lucky that my gym happens to be close to me as well. My gym is not cheap but for all services and options that it has it is the cheapest around here.

I started off only on the cardio machines for about 4-5 months then added yoga because I always like it. Eventually I took some interesting classes like kickboxing, spinning and Zumba. After that I only went on cardio machines when no class was available. Than I started working with weights...then weight training classes.

Point being it takes a long while before you get bored with the machines then there will be the weights then boom spring will be here. Then walking/jogging outside will be back. If you find yourself going 3-5 days for cardio and strengthen plus itching for more then maybe look for a more expensive gym with the bells and whistles. Now you will know if it is worth it. If the core of the gym (machine and weights) are enough than you will be able to afford to find a separate studio that teaches something else you may be interested in like...Karate, dance lessons, archery, etc...

Now I am being to "rethink" the "gym". No pool, no sauna, no classes- just treadmills, couple elliptical, bikes and weight machines. One changing room and one bathroom, not even a shower. All kidding aside- I will stick it out for the remainder of the month and see how it goes.

Fall is here already in MN- it has been chilly. The furnace has been on for awhile

The first day of Fall 2009 was on September 22. The autumnal equinox (first day of Fall) always falls around September 21. Fall in 2012 will be on September 22.

I will be changing the Seasonal Coffee Hut back to simple the Coffee Hut 2012- 2013. I think an annual one is enough to keep up with.

I am suspending the daily Seasonal Challenges to a simple "Check List" we know what we need to do and a simple reminder is enough to keep our healthy habits in our foremost thoughts!

Check for the following changes to start ASAP no later than first day of Fall.

Give the gym a chance DeNell, you will learn to love it. Try classes, weight training equipment, swimming pool and of course all the fun cardio machines. Personally I like the sauna room the best!

Let's move on to Tuesday!

so Anne- just up so early Sparking emoticon

Well day off today and I am still up at 5:30am. Today is the day for the dreaded annual exam at doctor, then after to son's cross country meet. I thought I would get up early to hit the grocery store before our morning bike ride at 8am. Unless I get my butt in gear- that just may not happen

Have a great day team!

Lalabeen...a grumpy husband? That is so unusual! emoticon On a serious note, he will get over whatever put him in a mood. Don't let it get to you.

TDonovan: I truly know what you mean about lack of motivation. I am in no mood myself lately but I keep on coming back to SP each day because you guys make me feel better even if it is for a little while.

dDawn: I hope all the medical issues will be okay. Let us know. Okay?

Thanks Laleebeen!

Thanks for coming back TDonavan!

Anne, it is a hard time right now-- you are ok, to be sad, to be ok, to be here. Thanks for being here and honestly where you are.


emoticon Let's go TEAM.

So grateful to be able to comeback to a team so strong and honest.

OH dear DeNell! Sounds like your week was a weird one. Too bad about the job thing- This upgrading of systems can be tiresome! Getting rid of workers is such a shame. Not letting people know WHO before they start bandying about the idea is really cruel.

Roebunch-- so glad that your son is NOT going to Afghanastan this trip and I do hope you can see the kids again soon.

Sorry about grumpiness Laleebeen.

Anne I hope you are doing ok now.

..
I got some medical news and some choices re some treatments- Luckily it is stuff that can be dealt with at least over time. But darned if it is not exhausting to try to take care of after work and before finishing take home work and all that. Think i will blog about it so I don't whine too much here.

...
One thing I am so grateful for is that the weather is perfect for me to get into the pool here (one reason my rent is so high so it makes sense for it to be used!). Just back in from it and I feel snuggly. Sorry I wasn't up to a social event, but at least I got into the pool.

Now for a late salad. After the weirdest eating day I've had in a long time!

Hang in there Roebunch. It's had to see them go.

Sorry about your work issues Nel, I hope it works out for all of you.

As for me, my husband woke up in a mood and is ragging about everything. Its not like he has to work tonight standing for eight hours dealing with rude customers who think your only purpose is to take their abuse.

Here's hoping everyones animals start behaving. Have a good day all!

Hang in the Roebunch- its not "goodbye" - its "see you later". Sorry that the "later" is probably longer than you would wish.

I cleaned up as much TP as I could. Neighbor is not happy at all as some has been blowing in her yard. Funny how people have a difference of opinion on the issue. Will post pictures of it.

As for the "access" at work. A system we use, they decided that we had access to do things that are not part of our job (even though we dont know what it is or what to do with it), so they started changing things and it kind of back-fired on them as they took away so much that we "couldnt" do our job!!! Bad news at work today- they have decided to ship some of our work out to India, which means there are 5 people that will be moving over to different jobs. At this point we dont know who will be moving on to different jobs or what those jobs will be.

glad everyone is hanging in there!! ahh the days of being tp'd. however the retribution my son used to give out minimalized the frequency;)

ahh dog barf, cat barf...it is why I have a love/hate relationship with my animals...the shelties have just started getting into the bathroom trash when we are gone. Now explain why after 6 years they all of a sudden have this compulsion to eat kleenex?

well this afternoon we take Kev to the airport...ugh...so I will be a basket case for the weekend. It just doesn't get any easier to say goodbye. Oh to be rich so I could fly to see him more often.

Love you all!!

Oh my, toilet papered porch! It is Halloween already?
On a more serious note...Your sons friends? Enemies? Were there other homes on the block TP?

Yes, I know the feeling of dog up chuck! Zhanne tends to puke on the family room rug. I sure it is because it is the only room with a rug! Bed sheets is her next favorite to soil anyway she can. emoticon

Not sure what less access means for your work but maybe they expect less work from you all! Okay that does not sound right either!! LOL

I hope things turned out better for the rest of the week.

Have a great day team.

Thanks for your concern. I am hanging in there.

it has been one of those days.

Woke up to the whole front yard being toilet papered!

work- well they decided to had too much access in one of our applications so they took some away- well both my co-workers did not have access to do their job. I had partial access.

While working- my dog decided to get sick and throw up in my bed- so I am now busy washing sheets

I so need Friday to be here already!

Labor Day weekend- the end of summer, means my son is done working. It was a pretty quiet weekend for me- nothing exciting other than my Aunt and Uncle's 50th wedding anniversary party on Sat.

School starts for most kids today (my boys started last week). Running buddy and I are going to have to see what exercise times work out. I wish I could get up earlier to get it done right away, but know that is not possible. I just feel like our routine is still hectic and leaves me with no time to myself.

emoticon swimming along as i get back to taking care of health and heaviness! Gratitude is possible again.. and for that i am even more grateful. Can't tell yall how happy i am to have had a couple of days off in a row where i do not feel guilty about everything!

i refuse to feel guilty about not being on here, but will definitely push to celebrate the gratitude i feel toward this team and this simple website community.

Good luck finding that second job, Roebunch and with your two jobs Laleebeen. Remember to take care of yourselves when so busy.

Hi all. I'm sorry I've been away but I had to take another part time job. Between the two I have, I'm almost getting full time hours which will be such a help. On the flip side, I'm tired a lot of the time and lately I've been crabby and irritable as I'm on my feet for 10+ hours a day three to four days a week. Fortunately, I have time to do a "real" workout before I go to job one.

Tdonovan- you are so right about the technology. I mean with Skype I actually get to "see" the kids. So i shouldn't complain. And I am thrilled they are out of this rotten county!! Unemployment and drugs are our claim to fame. I really want to get away from here!! I have had to start applying for a 2nd job again. Not looking forward to giving up my weekends again, but just can't make it.

Glad you are back Ddawn!! emoticon I missed your encouragement and positive attitude!! emoticon emoticon

So sorry Anne, it is so difficult. Especially the anniversary times. Praying for peace and comfort!!

Going to be a soggy day, going to have to get creative fitness wise emoticon

Great to year from you Ddawn! I love the wordiness especially because you been away so long, I wanted to hear what you been up to. Sorry about the 20+lbs weight gain but I too gained weight from vacation that partially comes off than comes right back on. So technically the weight gain has not come off.

I put in the time for exercise but the routine change somewhat. Less intense. I believe that equals to less calories burned. And I did not adjust for that in my nutrition. Well, at least I will be prepared for maintenance.

Yes, this is the week my brother was dying and I found out. This is the month that both Ralph and daddy passed on. I am finding it real hard.

Have a blessed day!

Hey yall,
Seems like forever since I was up to being on here. I forgot that coming on can help me be up to other things. Duh!

Anne, it must still be so difficult to deal with your losses. The time thing is weird. There has to be time when you are happy and living your life well-- i'm so glad you are! But again there is time when you just feel so sad so sad about the losses. I hope you can give in to those when needed and live the rest of the time.

DeNell! Poor thang dealing with computers and work and plans and and and. I hope you can reschedule and get along.

Hey Roebunch and everybody. Missed yall, I did.

I got all excited about having some time off this weekend. And then I was able to get into the pool, walk the dog longer and take care of some business that had needed attention bad like!

While in the pool I fullly remembered how much yall helped me one year ago. Now I'm still settled somewhere I am not thrilled with but man oh man there are worse places and I'm paying for a pool and insurance and and it is time to start living and taking care of what needs taking care of--- me. That other way, well, it just didn't help.

I'd put on 25 of the 54 I'd lost instead of moving on to lose the full 100 I'd 'planned' for last year. WEelllllllllll, now I don';t need to lose a full 100. But I do need to be betterer for/to myself. Sure am glad yall are here taking care of what's what and your you! GREAT role models.

hugz and sorry for the wordinessssss,
dDawn

DeNell, sorry about your dilemma. I hope your new plans work out even better then your original ones.

Tdonvan: I understand completely September is not only Ralph's 1year A-day but my dad's 3 year. Time is not healing me but eating away at me. I still cry horribly when I think of grandpa and grandma memories...I was in my twenties when they passed on. I think of all of them everyday. But at least they were all older, Ralph was just 50yo. He was strong and healthy so I have a major problem why he was taken from me (us).
