Iona--Glad to hear DD is on the mend! Oh, those home improvement projects---the end result is definitely better than the process.

Rose--Nothing major, just an all-around feeling of contentment.

Thorn--really none of those either...guess another reason I'm so content.

Have a great weekend, ladies!

(47 working days to summer vacation! emoticon just working on possible travel plans last night...WOOHOO!!!)

Linda, saw these new emoticons and thought of you and your garden...
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Happy planting!!!

Focus on what you CAN do, instead of what you can't!

It's not about lowering the weight on the scale; it's about increasing the weight on the bar!

Stop weighing yourself! Focus on eating healthier & getting stronger. Looking better will simply be an added bonus!

DD is a lot better, thanks for asking.

Rose - Did Parkrun again today, not quite as quick as last week but enjoyed it all the same.

Thorn - DH has decide to change the wallpaper in our lounge, major furniture removal (good for burning calories) and clutter all over the house now! But worth it in the long run I suppose!! emoticon

Thorns... my dear 93 year old neighbor and friend of 40 years passed away Sunday emoticon

I sure will miss Jeane and yet I'm so glad she is finally at peace emoticon I've been her caregiver for a long time and was able to get her on hospice, off her meds, and on morphine just hours before her dear sweet heart gave out. She always wanted to go in her sleep... I'm happy she got her final wish emoticon

Rose--Easter vacation starts tomorrow for DD13 and me. Finally feeling human again after the flu. Can't remember the last time I was that sick and had to call-in sick to work a whole week...AND didn't workout for 2 weeks! Getting back into workouts starting tomorrow. WOOHOO!!! Just glad to be well for Easter, vacation, and DD13's birthday (coming April 7).

Thorn--Twins are on vacation this week and back in school when I am off next week. emoticon

Happy Easter!!! emoticon

Rose--March is upon us...days are getting longer weather getting warming.
emoticon I'm starting to get the summer "bug". Only 70 working days 'til summer vacation, but who's counting (I only know that because I do the school's attendance in the computer and the program tells me exactly what # day we are on.)
My awesome brother's b-day is today. Happy 42 to you!!! Thanks for being one of my best friends in life.
DD13, Grace, got her acceptance letter to Bishop Amat high school..She also earned a scholarship for her high scores on the entrance exam. (Thank goodness, because she needs braces, too! $$$ emoticon $$$)

Thorns... I've been having connection problems emoticon We pay a premium for our Time Warner service but I get kicked several times while waiting for SparkPeople to load... three disconnects in 5 minutes is my limit... too many advertisements running on this site. SparkPeople will work it out. In the mean time I can barely spin/track and check a couple teams before I give up and try later.

Roses... Love YOU all and glad I could get caught up emoticon stay strong emoticon and Spark On emoticon

Thanks for the roses Franco!! We got some lovely flowers delivered to our house, but alas for my girls and not me. DH did bring some chocolate home for me, will he never learn!!

Today my Rose is another 4 mile run....Yay

Thorn- I woke up with rather stiff hips today... no idea why, feeling rather odd now after my run. Foam roller to the rescue!

Have a great weekend team!

Thorn--It's Monday (yawn!). The weekend went in a blink!

Rose--It's Monday. On the bright side, this is actually my easiest day at work. And there is a 3-day weekend looming ahead as motivation for the week...no to mention the start of Lent AND emoticon day.

Good Morning team

Sunny, so sorry to hear about Mum, that is awful. My elderly aunt had her purse snatched from her while out shopping, it took her such a long time to get over it.

I had a good weekend, got some walking in and some running with daughter who is doing C25K!

Rose...ordered a new car yesterday, it will be here March 1st

Thorn.... Long hours at work this week.

Good luck to your daughter with her entrance exam!!!!!

Rose - celebrated my daughter's 9th birthday yesterday. We had a surprise for her to go to the theatre to see the musical "Peter Pan" (yes, on a school night). It was a great day.

Thorn - now I am being a lazy log, and was supposed to work from home on students internship papers today, and I did not. I am mad at myself.

IONA, glad daughter is ok. Hope things workout ok dealing with the car. Hang in there!!!

SUNNY--Good choice on choosing the gym over watching your 'lazy logs'.
You gotta do what you gotta do!!! emoticon



ROSE--DD13, Grace, is taking High School Entrance Exam tomorrow at Bishop Amat. I went there & she decided years ago it was going to be the place for her, too. So excited for her! I know she'll do fine on the test, just hope the nerves don't get to her.

THORN--Was going to say work...it was report card week. That's my least favorite job I have, but since I'm done & the week is over (TGIF!) I guess it's not worth complaining about now. emoticon

IONA, great to see you here again! I am so sorry to hear about your daughter's accident! But what a relief she is OK. It's a pain to take care of the car now but it can be done, and thankfully she is doing well!!!!! It must've been so scary for you!

Thank you for your comment about my job. I am trying to exercise to combat that stress. I think it's working so far.

Rose: I normally don't work out in the evening but I did tonight. Feel so much better after the gym.

Thorn: the reason I went to the gym tonight - because I was tired of my 2 lazy logs at home (my DH and my DD), and decided to leave them for the evening and have "me" time tonight at the gym.

Happy New Year!

Love this thread!

Rose - I fell recommitted after the vacations, holidays, guests, starting my exercising but hurting my back. Reading Elizabeth's blog has helped me to feel super energized.

KIZZYM--WooHoo! on the weight loss progress!!! I know what you mean about getting the water down. In the summer it's not a problem; but in winter I really struggle to get it all in.

Focus on what you CAN do, instead of what you can't!

It's not about lowering the weight on the scale; it's about increasing the weight on the bar!

Stop weighing yourself! Focus on eating healthier & getting stronger. Looking better will simply be an added bonus!

Linda, WOWZA! 9lb, 13 oz. So glad to hear everyone is doing well!
Iona, I here you on going back to work...the weekend went by WAY to fast!
KIZZYM, way to go on your efforts--I hear that 'Turbo Jam' is tough!

Thorn...It's Monday. So hard to get up today...felt like the weekend went by in a blink!
Rose...It's Monday, which is actually my easiest work day of the week.

Our thorn yesterday was waiting for our DDs c-section to be performed. She was on the operating table ready for the injection when she was bumped for an-others emergency c-section... which put her off for a couple hours but all our prayers were answered at 3:34 PM when she delivered a healthy 9 lb 13 oz, 21 3/4' boy emoticon red roses for everyone emoticon Back to the hospital today for some more cuddling emoticon

Woohoo to babies! We'll be eagerly waiting to hear, Linda!
Iona, that's great that you got a place in the 10K. Hope you can get some rest over the weekend for that cold.

Rose--It's FRIDAY!!! Gotta love short work weeks!
Thorn--Felt better over New Years, now feeling like cold is coming around again--coughing more last night, too. Even though I was in bed by 9:45, it was a crappy night's sleep :(

Here's to everyone doing well and feeling better over the weekend!

How exciting to hear about a new baby Linda, hope everything goes to plan, look forward to news and photos!

Rose.... Got a confirmation email of my place in our local 10K race in May. It is limited to 500 places so I'm lucky to get in.

Thorn...... Darn head cold worse than ever, not much sleep last night emoticon

LOVE the title of our 2013 chat forum emoticon As always Elizabeth has such clever ideas!!!!

Thorn... DD can't deliver her first baby vaginally/un-medicated as planned. He's just too big.

Rose.... we will have another grandbaby tomorrow January 4th, just after 1PM and God willing he will be healthy and our Katy will be less traumatized trying to deliver then having to get an emergency c-section. She's just over 5 foot and her DH is 6' 8". They both were well over 9 pounds and 22 inches so the math just won't compute. I'm really going to miss watching his birth but healthy wins hands down emoticon

I'm going to be busy for awhile but that's a GOOD thing... can't wait emoticon

Have a great weekend ladies emoticon

Hi Team

Love the new thread Roses and Thorns I will also check in more frequently!
Thorns -New Year has started with a head cold, know how you feel Franco! Hoping to shake it off in the next few days. Unlike most, I have worked over the holidays and now have 4 days off work and want to get my exercise kick started. The weather is quite mild here just now and would be ideal for running emoticon
Roses - Have eaten a lot less today and been grocery shopping for "good" stuff!

Look forward to making this a great year for our little team. emoticon

Hi, KIZZYM! Welcome to our team. We are small but mighty, and always glad to have new members. Looks like your New Year is off to a great start!!!

Today's thorn--woke-up feeling like my cold was coming back. No, no, no!
Today's rose--my DH let me sleep-in until 9:15! Awesome considering this is my last day of vaca (too bad that'll make waking up at 5:30 tomorrow all the more difficult ...lol)

Happy New Year, team!!!

Aside from starting out my Xmas vacation sick (along with my sick kids) this holiday season was GREAT!!! My mom, DD13, and I made tamales for the first time. And, might I say, we are patting ourselves on the back! You see, each Xmas we pick a food-type for Xmas dinner. The last few years have been Italian, but that was getting "old". Besides, I have been gluten-free for 8 months now and GF pasta isn't all that great. So, this year we picked "Mexican food". Now, I've made tacos here, a tray of enchiladas there, but this was going to be a full-on Mexi-feast! Keeping in mind that my side of the family is not one iota of Mexican decent, this was going to be a big undertaking...especially when I decided to announce to my mom that we were going to make tamales (neither of us ever have!) emoticon
Needless-to-say, 108 tamales later we called ourselves successful...and the rave reviews (especially from DH who IS Mexican and has a mother & sister who makes them like nobody's business) came from all around the table at Xmas dinner!!! 3 kinds of tamales, 2 kinds of enchiladas, rice, beans...it was quite a feast. And, homemade creme brulee for dessert. Those kitchen torches are cool!!!
While the cooking (& cleaning) seemed endless, I had a GREAT Xmas holiday with my kids & extended families on both sides.
The rest of the vacation has been pretty low-key and is quickly coming to a close. Soon the mayhem of all being back to work/school will begin again next week.
Hoping everyone else had a great holiday & looking forward to hearing all about...Linda, still waiting for "baby news"....

Have a great first week of the New Year!!! emoticon


BTW, in case anyone is wondering "How'd she do that?"...the only reason I have over 300 fitness minutes for the month already is because I already tracked all my exercise for the whole rest of the week. emoticon

Share your highs (roses) and lows (thorns) of your day/week. Let's make an effort (myself, included!) to stay better connected on our team pages this year. Personally, I am going to try for at least one check-in per week on this thread. Hope you will join me!!!
