Hi Susie! I'd give anything to be heading into winter like you are in the Land of Oz! We are cookin' here!~ and it ain't even into the real hot part of summer! I'm done complaining... I just love the cool climate even though I've always seem to have lived where it has been hot!

Good morning team!

It's a HOT Sunday morning and predicted to be a scorcher today. All my blinds are pulled and the AC is running!

I made a delicious Ahi Tuna dinner last night. Have you ever tried Tuna steaks? They actually taste like STEAKS!! I kid you not! Tonight I have shrimp to fix... I usually sauté the shrimp with ginger & garlic. YUMM! I need to put my recipe in my Mediterranean Way Cookbook so you can try it too.

Well, the kitchen is a mess from breakfast... Sunday is the only day that I don't fix hot cereal in the morning and bless my DH with a real breakfast... I HATE THE MESS! But he loves the pancakes, eggs, bacon & melon instead of Cream of Wheat or Oatmeal! LOL So to keep him happy I do HIS meal at least once a month! Better go ... the mess is distracting!

Keep that Spark Team! The first week of July is scheduled to be our first set of challenges! Are you READY? I hope so! It's more fun when everyone plays along!

Talk @ ya later!

Good morning, just checking in for the first time since Thursday. I had a friend come for a couple of days visit. We had a great time catching. Now I need to catch up on my chores! So the rest of my week-end will be spent cleaning, yard work, and a little time with the dog on a nice long walk.

Hi Team! How's everyone doing on this Friday? What are you doing that is fun for the weekend? We've got some small repairs to do around the house so we will be heading off to Home Depot Saturday morning! (I love to look around there!)

It's a beautiful day here in No. Calif. Doesn't even feel like summer! Funny weather!

Keep Sparking!

Quick hello!

I'm busy today with Grand-baby Hadleigh and her tummy ache. Her Mommy added something new to her diet and the milk is being affected. Darn!! That's the only problem I see with breast milk... it can change with every meal if you're not careful. I've had to pull out all my tricks from the 'vault' to get her tummy settled down. She finally went to sleep and I'm trying to get things done around here and Spark too.
emoticon
I'll try catching up later this afternoon. We will be having the granddaughters tonight for dinner. Today is jammed packed with kids!! LOL

Tomorrow I get a break, but it will be filled with errands. I'll check in as I can. Forgive me for not being here more. I may not be here in person, but my thoughts are never far away!

Hugs,
Becky

DH & I walk 3 miles a day, five days a week. We use to do some trail running with our walk, but I hurt my hip way back in January and had to stop. Hip is better now so back to the trails, I'm really looking forward to that. I also practice yoga 3 times a week and strength train 3 times a week.

On vacations, we're always hiking and/or riding our mountain bikes. Always trying to stay busy!!

Hi everyone! Beck, in response to your questions...
I like to do aerobic videos. For whatever reason, I need the energy and music that most of them provide to keep me going. Since getting older and having joint issues I stick with low impact videos but in my more fit days did a wide variety. I have trouble being outside so I don't walk much but do occasionally. I am scheduled to do cardio four times a week right now. I do strength exercises twice a week and am trying to add on to them gradually.

Ellen--try joining one of the challenges. I find they really help my motivation! In fact, I get overly enthusiastic and don't stop when I need to sometimes!

I knew I liked seafood but now that I have a good reason to buy it I am realizing just how much. I am learning to enjoy fruits and veggies more and more. This diet is definitely a good match for me!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Linda

Hi everyone, just wanted to check in. I am down in Atlanta visiting my brother this weekend - after working here earlier in the week. I was glad to be able to tack this visit on to my work trip!

We walked for an hour this morning. Becky, you asked what we do for exercise...that is my goal - to get an exercise program going!

My nutritionist told me that he wants me to work up to walking 4 hours per week. My brother and I plan to take another walk tomorrow...then I fly home tomorrow night and will be on my own. That can be hard making it happen when I have only myself for motivation!!

My eating has been good!

I go back to the nutritionist next Friday to check in so we shall see!

Everyone have a great weekend.

Ellen

Hi Team! I just realized that I didn't check in with you today. It's been one busy day with watching the baby. I'm still getting used to having a little one in the house again. It has thrown my whole routine off. I so glad that she is a good baby. I don't know how I would do if she were fussy.

I'm sticking closely to my Mediterranean diet way. When I was at the market on Monday I looked for fish but didn't find anything that looked good, so I am supplementing with my Omega-3's to keep my body happy.

In July I will only be watching the baby 3 days a week... so theoretically I will be back to exercising 4 days a week. Theoretically! LOL I really will try. I felt so good while I was working out.

What does everyone do for their workouts? Run? Walk? Bike? Hmmm?

Hi everyone, I am checking in to let you know that I
am back! I had a good trip - combination business and visit with my family. My business trip got extended by a day, which lead me to call my boss to ask her if I could take Friday off. That allowed me to stay through the weekend with my family. It was a great trip.

I ate healthy...which is not always the case when I go home for a visit. At the same time, my sister and I started a walking program. We walked for an hour at a time, on 4 different occasions. Now I need to figure out how to motivate myself to continue this on my own and doing this alone. I miss my sisters so much and enjoyed having the company of my sister Sheila to walk!

Good to be back to computer access and with my Spark friends!

Wishing you all a great Monday evening.

Ellen

Hi Team! I hate to keep doing this to you, but this is going to be a really quick note to let you know that I am alive and kickin'!

DH is up in his home town of Quincy preparing for their 50th Class Reunion. He left yesterday, and I have been on my own just me, Hadleigh & Buddy.

I'm in the process of packing for the weekend to join DH for his class reunion. Clothes! What to wear? I went to the store last night and found a few tops, but still they are in question.

I go for a pedicure tonight after baby Hadleigh leaves. I haven't had a pedi since I quit working 3 years ago. I hope I don't scare the little gal that is doing it! I've tried to keep it up with sanding the rough patches and painting the toe nails, but most of the time I get more polish on my toes than I do on my nails! LOL

Good news this morning when I stepped on the scale and saw ONE pound gone FOREVER! It's all because of this new way of eating and cutting out all that junk food that does my body harm. I can do this!

I'm going on and on... and I need to step away from the computer. Thank you for hanging in there with me. I will check in later.

Hugs,
B

Hi Becky ..Thanks for starting this team ..I have been eating this way for a couple of years now and it is really working well.
I need to eat more fish..but it is hard to get fresh fish here!! although we are on the river we have fresh water fish and we really need the oily sea fish as you already know.
I will just have to get it out of a can!!
Congrats on the New Team ..
Cheers Susie and Bobby

Ellen - have a great trip and enjoy yourself.

I am planning a healthy cookout for my family this weekend - my family will bring their own unhealthy, fat-full foods, but I will have plenty of my own food that I won't be tempted by theirs.

Good luck on the weekend to everyone and I hiope that you are all able to stick to your plan.

Hi everyone, just stopping by to check in today! I wanted to let you know that I am heading away for almost a week...combination visit to my family and business.

I will have limited computer access, but when I get a chance visiting my brother or sister's home, I will try to check in with you all.

Wishing you all a wonderful long weekend.

What can you do this weekend to stick with your plan? I will need to be really careful being away for a longer stretch. But I have been eating in a healthy way for a good few weeks so that is going to help me. I really want to keep my momentum going.

I need to remember that nothing tastes as good as the way I feel right now - hopeful!

Take care everyone, enjoy.

Ellen

Thanks for the links to the eating plan and the supoplements.

I have spent the first part of the week moving my daughter out of her apartment and just when I thought I was going to be able to catch up today - we are having severe storms (hail, rain, etc) and power outages so I am trying to post in between outages.

Welcome all new members.

Hi Team!!

Welcome to all newest member! We are already a team of 18! That is amazing! I guess there were a lot of you out there who were interested in this eating plan. I hate to call it a 'diet'... because it really doesn't seem like a 'diet' since we don't have to give up anything!

I'm doing a quick "drive-by" while Hadleigh is asleep. I hope everyone is doing GREAT! I'm trying to stick to the Mediterranean Plan. Seems to be kind of easy for me. How 'bout you?

We are having lots of rain and cold weather here too. Strange for May. My poor nasturtiums don't know what to do! LOL

I have a list of things that I am putting together for this team in the way of challenges. Hang in there with me. I won't let you down!

I wanted to try posting this link to a quick on-line article in Prevention magazine. It has some good information about important dietary supplements. Thought my team mates might be interested!

I am not sure how to create that automatic link, but if you paste the above into your browser, I think it will take you there.

Have a good day...will check back later!

Hi Everyone! Quick break while the baby is napping and I have a few minutes. I hope everyone is doing well today. Did you see the link I posted on this diet? I hate calling it a diet, because it really isn't... it's a way of life! Anyway, this link had some really good information.

Let me know what you think!

Keep that Spark!

On the Team's page I posted a photo of the Mediterranean Diet Pyramid. If you see there are a few differences, but it should be a cinch!

We could quickly get ourselves unorganized with our threads.

Let's try to keep all food related questions or recipes under the "Recipe Forum", our introductions and welcomes under the "Introduction Forum", general discussions under this "General Team Discussion Forum", and soon I will be posting some challenges for us under our "Challenge Forum". This way when we go back to find something we will know where to look.

You may start any new discussion thread you want to. I will set some of the threads as "Sticky" so we won't lose them.

It would be easy to get ourselves all mixed up since we are so new.

I'm 100% opened to any suggestions and help in leading this team.

Thanks.

Well, this is it! I started this team at the suggestion of others. Now we just need to discover all there is to know about this way of living and share it with one another. So let's begin this journey together!

Ready! Get Set! GO!!

Always keeping that Spark!
