I sent a sparkmail to Carolyn just in case she doesn't check the daily post. Maybe I can find out that way. It seems a shame to make it private since then fewer people can join unless invitied.

My boots look GREAT! I feel so sexy! Both pairs are so comfortable. I am so glad I brought them. I have wanted a pair of boots for years. I have never had the money, or they wouldn't fit. These are beautiful!

Good Morning. Wondered when the team became private. It's always been open to anyone but now it shows it's a private team. Just curious.
Got in a good workout at the fitness center today and my menu for the day is healthy and within my guidelines. So I'm doing pretty well for middle of the week. Hope everyone is having a terrific day.

My weight is back down this morning big time, but my menu for today will be a little over sodium wise, so it may be back up tomorrow. Hopefully not as much though.
Hope you're all having a good Tuesday. We're getting ready to have bad storms all afternoon and just above us, there's a huge tornado watch going on. Going to be a wet and stormy day.

It's been stormy in Florida since Friday. I don't know if I'll ever see the sun again. It put a crimp in my exercise routine.. usually the weather is good enough that I don't need to move my routine indoors.
I guess it could be worse. I didn't have to dig my car out of a snow bank to get to work this morning.

I am too right now but hopefully tomorrow it'll be going back in the right direction.
My weight is way up today but I know it's excess fluid so I'm not going to worry about it. Tomorrow it'll probably be back down. Being really careful over what I eat today. Hope everyone is having a great Monday.

Today is a cloudy day and rain is expected but it's a warm day too. Guess we can use the rain too.
I have left over homemade stew that we're going to have over rice for supper. Sounds good to me.
Hope everyone is having a good Sunday.

Well, we're at the end of another week. Hard to believe only 5 more days in February. Where has the month gone?
This month I've made some progress emotionally and maybe even a little physically. My eating still stinks but I'm trying to get a handle on it. At least now I know more of what I want and in March I'll be working towards that end.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Well I paid my dad part of what I owe him. Now I don't owe my sister anything! That is a wonderful emoticon moment!

I get my transcripts send to the school in two weeks. Another step to complete my New Year's resolutions.

I have a new futon. Its so pretty. Now I don't have a mattress on the floor. This week I am grabbing a new curtain for my bedroom and a shower curtain. I shouldn't say a new one. I am getting one since every other room in the house is completely decorated. My house looks alike a home except my bath and bedroom. emoticon

I am going to the gym this weekend. I am taking Jamie and the kids. I think they are going to really like to being in the pool. At least, I know Kaleb will.

I am very happy I have my car...makes life so much easier!

emoticon All bills are paid! Almost... one more will be paid as soon as I get a hold of the lady. I am ordering my transcripts. I am going back to school no matter what.

I ordered my new boots! I have had my old boots for 7 years. It was very much time to get a new pair. I found a sale and a coupon. I ordered a black and brown pair for less than one pair including shipping. They should be here by next Thursday. I am so super duper excited.

I also purchased AAA. Next time I have car trouble I am set.

I also applied for two jobs within the bank. I am keeping my fingers crossed. The man that trained me went to the same department. I figure I have a real good shot. I also talked to my boss and she is going to network for me. emoticon

I am so excited my life is getting better. Randy will be here next Friday. We are going to spend the weekend together. This is to see if something is still there. For me, I have feeling but I am not sure how much I feel. I know I like him. I liked the pictures. I am taking this slow. We agreed. We both have to priorities that need to be complete first.

I am feeling very responsible.

I got my spring challenge workout in early this morning. Today I finished Week 3 and now I'm on the LAST week of this challenge. I will make it to the finish line!

Today was a "rest day" in the challenge. So I did 2 Coach Nicole strength training videos for a total of 20 minutes. I've also been a firm believer in cardio, but never made much of an effort to include strength training. This challenge has showed me the importance of including both. I see such a difference in my range of motion.

Have a health day everyone!

Blessings,

I picked up my car last night! It drives so well. I am so glad to have it again.

Randy is coming to see me in 9 days. I am so excited. It makes me feel great that I am desired. I hope things work out.

I am going to the gym in the morning. I was going to the gym today but I forgot my clothes at home. At least, I will have them ready.

Now, if I can get a permanent job I will be set. Things are finally starting to get back to normal.

Congrats to turning down chinese for the home cooked meal. Family pressure is hard.

I went to jiu jitsu for the first time in a year. I'm getting too old for it, but I have no patience for weight lifting.. so I let this serve as my core strength exercise. I'll see if I can pick up my hands and put them on the keyboard tomorrow at work.

I too was starving and almost gave into pizza, but I managed to dig my heels in.

I almost got Chinese for dinner. I wanted Chinese. My mother said "hey let's get Chinese" .... And I said "I have this chicken that needs to be cooked, how about I make something.

It was Indian Korma, with chicken, white beans, and a ton of veggies! It was and I know that my body is silently thanking my willpower for being the voice of reason!

I am still talking to Randy. He will be visiting me the weekend of the first. I am excited and nervous about seeing him. It has been almost 20 years.

I am preparing for his visit. I want to look great... I foresee a haircut, mannie and peddie! It has been over a year since I have treated myself to those things anyways! Spa weekend with my bff, Jamie!

Went yesterday and today to the fitness center and plan to go tomorrow too. For some reason Bob has been short of breath this morning so I'm making him take it easy. It could be the pollen in the air but I don't like for him to take chances. He said if he got to feeling better after lunch, he might go out to his workshop for a little while.
Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday.

Just got my spring challenge work out completed and I'm feeling great. I didn't get enough sleep last night so it was hard to roll out of bed. That will probably catch up with me this afternoon. But for right now the work out has given me enough energy to tackle some tasks this morning.

emoticon

Tomorrow is the last day of week 3 of my challenge. Then week 4, the last one. It's hard to believe. I'm so proud of myself for getting this far and I know I'll make it to the finish line. I can't wait to earn that trophy!!

Have a wonderful and healthy day everyone!

Boy, I'm late checking in here today! I've spent most the day preparing for a 5% challenge group I just joined. It's been a lot of work, but my spark page is new and sparkly! :)

I got my exercise in early this morning and also accomplished my 5 servings of fruits/veggies. Two more days and I will be on week 4 of the Spring into Shape Challenge. I'm really starting to notice a difference in my energy and strength, maybe even a teeny bit in my clothes. Yay!!

Well, off to bed so I can get up early and workout. Have a good night everyone!

Blessings,

Thanks Bluejeans. I need encouragement! It's SO cold today. I want to bake things that smell cinnamon-y and then eat them with hot cocoa! Instead I will go sledding with my kids, and hope my pedometer realizes how much more work each step is in 2 feet of snow with a child in tow. :-)

It is really chilly this morning. Our heater ran almost all night long. Only supposed to get up to 62 for the high today ( it's 33 degrees right now). Got our exercise in and now we'll hybernate the rest of the day.

This week has been good. I stayed on track and managed my fitness targets. I have lost 7 lbs since last Sunday which makes up for the disappointing previous few weeks. emoticon

Congrats Kminehan77! I've been averaging about that same amount of weight loss (2 lbs/month or less) for the past 2+ years and it does add up over time. I live in Maine and winter is my toughest weight loss time too. My body just does NOT like to give up the fat when it's cold out! One of those biological things programmed into us I guess.

Keep plugging away at it!

So... I'm down almost 2 lbs in 4 weeks. Down is down right? That is 8 sticks of butter that I am no longer carrying. We've been shoveling a lot up this way, and I'm trying to stick to my "don't watch TV unless you are in the stationary bike" rule, but somedays it's easy to lie to myself and just pour a glass of wine and turn on the electric blanket instead.
Winter makes me want to hibernate.

I decided today to step back from the scale for the next 6 months. I want to see what I can accomplish in that time frame without being focused on the numbers on the scale. In the past I've said no more scales EVER and all that did was screw with my head. This time, I'm just setting a time limit and see how that works out for me. This way I can concentrate on being healthy, not worrying about the yo-yo-ing my body goes thru on a day to day basis. And I feel pretty good about making this commitment and can't wait to see what progress I make both in fitness, and in my over all health and spirit. emoticon

Congrats on your inch lost!!!

I worked out in spurts today- stayed inside since it was a little chilly out :)

Tomorrow, I plan on getting on my bike and getting another ride in. Since we don't have school on Monday, I don't weigh in till Tuesday for our BL challenge!

Finished my challenge exercise early this morning. 45 min. cardio and 6 min. Coach Nicole strength training DVD. I went to my daughter's girl scout even where they were highlighting states with crafts and food. The food was in little bite size portions so that we could all sample 11 state's worth of food. Some was healthy and some was not, but it made me think of how I could be satisfied with a 1" square of cheese cake or two spoonfuls of key lime pie. It's all in the mindset! :)

Had a good start today. I found I had lost an inch from my thighs since I last measured two weeks ago. Everywhere else was the same, but that's an inch I'm pleased is gone. emoticon

Good Morning....

Life is getting better! I received my State taxes back. It was the exact amount owed on my car to get fixed. My car will be ready within 10 days. I am very happy about that! FREEDOM!!!

I am going to the gym on Saturday. I can burn some of my stress off. That makes me happy too!

Last night, I pick up last minute supplies for my project this weekend. I am all set to fix the kitchen. By Monday, my kitchen will be Sage Green and the floor will be fixed.

I cannot wait to start my three day weekend!

It's a wet and chilly day here today. The cold front got here and we went from 80 degrees weather down to low 60's for the high. But by mid week it'll be back in the low 80's again.
Hope everyone is having a good day and looking forward to the weekend.

Got my exercise in for the spring challenge today. I was able to up the cardio to 45 minutes. I started this challenge at 12 minutes cardio. It's amazing the difference that 16 days has made! Now to work on adding the 5 fruits & veggies to my diet. I'm looking forward to the challenge.

Have a great day everyone!

Salvaged a not so great eating day with jump rope and some running. To avoid the crowds at restaurants tonight, we'll eat in and drink some champagne. Save the nice restaurant for tomorrow. Now I've gotten chilled and it's time to hit the hot shower.

Happy Valentine's Day!

It is an okay V day. I miss my Grandma. I always celebrated with her. Our own private birthday party. Everyone always had plans. Grandma's bday was yesterday.

Well this weekend I am painting my kitchen. Its going to be sage green. My bff's husband will be helping with the painting and redoing the kitchen floor. The kids are off Friday. I am off on Monday. It makes it a nice Adult project.

I have actually been talking to a man...a man from my past. We dated when I was 16 years old. Oh man...were we hot and heavy back then. We live four hours apart. We have been talking for months. Nothing but friends. He actually asked me to be his Valentine. It came out of no where. I was shocked, surprised and happy! We are talking about getting together in two weeks. Twisted!

I decided to take a mini break from job hunting today. Just not in the mood to be frustrated!

Good for you, TUBJUMPER, that you turned a frustrating day into a positive. I hope you celebrated that!!

Today I've completed my exercise for the spring challenge. I'm in Week 3 now and am so excited to have made it this far!! I hope to make a healthy Valentines treat for my family to enjoy when they come home. My husband and I will be going out tonight, so I need to be researching some healthy choices.

Have a wonderful Valentines, everyone. Do something loving for yourself!!

*sgh* what a day! I weighed in this morning and gained 1.2 lbs. Went to town to cash a check and forgot the check. I went to the gym and felt better, no use driving 15 miles for nothing.

Good Morning...

I am remaining positive... as much as I can. I cannot wait to get my taxes back. I will have my car soon. That means I will have my freedom as well. I hate having to rely on other people.

I send out a total of 20 resumes in the last two days. I am hoping to get at least a third to responded. I am not sure if that is expecting to much. I really need to know what I am going to be doing by August.

My plan is still to enroll in school. I have to figure things out as I go. That makes my anxiety level raise uncontrollably. I make list. I am not sure that helps. Its better then nothing.

Today I completed week 2 of the Spring into Shape Challenge. I'm at the 1/2 way point!! :) Today is rest day so it was just a bit of strength training. Tomorrow will be the same. Then after that we're to add 10 more minutes of cardio to our routine. That will be 40 minutes total. I'm not sure if I'll do that in the morning or just add another short video sometime later in the day. I'm leaning towards the latter.

Have a great day everyone!

I am trying to stay positive. I wish it was a Friday because then I would be looking at a three day weekend! Not that I am doing very much this weekend. Maybe I will have the kids clean the yard. I don't know yet.

I just finished my challenge workout for the day: 34 minutes cardio and an SP strength training video. This is 13th day in the challenge and I'm starting to fight the desire to just skip it. But I am not going to give in!!!

I saw this (or something close) on the SP motivational quote page: I regretted that workout said no one ever.

Have a beautiful day everyone!

I am so frustrated. My exercise at the gym is crap because I without my car. I do some things at home. I feel less productive. My car should be fixed in less than two weeks now.

I am frustrated with my job. I love my job. I love coming to work everyday. However, knowing that within 7 months I will be out a job is what is getting to me. I finished my resume and cover letter. I have sent out 5 resumes today. Today, I found out every hour of my overtime lessens my contract. I was told it is my choice to do overtime or not to do overtime.

That is the question!

For you people who just got a butt load of snow..
Do you move your exercise indoors or just put on snow shoes and keep going?

I live in the florida (almost, not quite central time zone) and was spending time in nc. Just that little bit north and east knocked an hour of day light off the afternoon and that was enough to put a crimp in my routine. Not sure how I'd handle winter in a new england state. I have tried cross country skiing and liked it.. who knows, maybe I could adapt.

Just got back from the fitness center a few minutes ago. Bob decided to check out the cardiac section. They have a 16 week program but the schedule isn't what he wants so he's not going to do it. So he'll continue with the pool exercises and maybe try to stationary bike once a week. But I intend to keep using all the machines I'm currently using.
Hope everyone is having a great Monday.

Good morning, Slowest Losers! I've got my workout in for the Spring into Shape challenge. I found that I'm kicking higher today. I love seeing these little changes. It's been 12 days now of exercise. I'm hopeful that by the end of this 4 week challenge I will have a lot to celebrate!

I just finished Day 4, Week 2 of the spring into shape challenge and I'm basking in the glow! :) It was hard to get up this morning and face it. The timing seems about right for me. But I conquered today and I'm going to revel in it.

Here in Ohio it is projected to be a rather warm sunny day, in the low 50s. Sorry to all of you buried in snow.

Have a great day everyone!

I just had a great morning workout! I'm doing the spring into shape challenge. This Day 3, Week 2 and I saw great improvement on the strength training video compared to last week. It's amazing what one week will do!

I started at 12 minutes cardio + video. Now up to 30 minutes cardio + video. 10 days. 10 days and such a difference. I didn't expect this so quickly. And I'm overjoyed!!

So I got a hold my car guy. He accepted my payment arrangements. He will be starting my car on Monday which my car is already at the shop. emoticon He will have my car fixed and ready in two weeks!

I am so glad this week is almost over. My birthday is Saturday. emoticon I am not doing to much for my "Happy" day. I had a choice. I could go out and have a party day or I could put the money for good use and get my car fixed.

I am still feeling a little emoticon sorry for myself because life is just put me on another roller coaster right. I am sad my friends are no longer at work. I am sad that I am single even though according to my friends I shouldn't let that bother me. I am frustrated that if I don't find a job by September I will not have money to support my son.

I am trying to improve my situation. I just finished my second draft of my resume. I have made 5 different styles. I am taking them home tonight to have my friends look them over. I have given myself a deadline to finish my final draft by the 15th. emoticon I have several job leads but I haven't applied for any as of yet.

That is me... Dinner for One Please emoticon

Sorry to hear about your dad. Hope you get thru it ok.

We got to the fitness center EARLY this morning and got in a good workout. Now I'm washing clothes while Bob is working in his wood shop. Hope everyone has a great Friday.

Spending time with Mom due to death of my Dad. Lots of errand running. Lot more carbs than I would usually eat if I were home.. which makes me hungrier than normal. Given that fat is twice the calories of carbs per ounce, it's surprising how carb calories can add up. I've been doing this a while, so I shouldn't be surprised, but I am nontheless.
Went running in the rain.. and the dark. Mom's neighborhood, even though there's city all around, prefers to eschew street lights. Put on a reflective vest, a head light and a flashing LED bike light. The head light is so I can see where I'm going. Nice hot shower after running in a cold rain is refreshing. Anyway, not losing, but not gaining either

Don't Complain. Camp in the rain.
