Hi everyone! Hope you are all doing ok. Sorry it has been a while. Again if anyone wants to be the leader or to co-lead - LET ME KNOW I think it is more than I can handle right now. But I will do my best if not!

Will be trying to start my exercise video routine again on Wednesday! Wish me luck. Mowed the lawn Sunday - today I rested and tomorrow we walk about 7 blocks to the church in town for story time and then back.

Happy thoughts for everyone!!

Still having some difficulty remembering to get on here but I am definitely trying. This week is a bittersweet one as we have our Preschool Graduation. I know they are ready but they have been mine for so long - I am going to miss them. Of course, a few of them I am ready for them to be gone but I will still miss them.

Hope everyone is doing well.
I remember when we did the countdown like that for my brother - it was never quick enough!! Have a great day!!

Welcome back! I have been around but not posting much because I felt like I was talking to myself. I am sorry to hear about the loss of your father. I pray that the closeness your family has gained continues to grow.
I have about 90 days until my hubby returns from deployment and I can't wait for his return. I love the summer but want to rush it this year so I see him sooner.

Hi everyone. It has been awhile since I posted so I thought I would try to catch you up to speed. Last year as many of you know, I got married. After that, I had some family drama. But in November, my Dad was seen in the ER and rushed to another hospital with heart issues. They completed open-heart surgery but he fought an uphill battle for a little under a month. He passed away before Christmas. My family and I drew closer together again as one should under these circumstances.
We even took a family trip to FL in Jan - something we haven't done in years. It was a lot of fun.
Then the family drama started all over. My youngest daughter just graduated high school. My family came - I was glad to see them but there are still a lot of hurt feelings there...everyone behaved for the most part. However, most of my family did not like any pictures of her grad that was posted on Facebook. They also did not like or say anything on our 1 year anniversary this week on Facebook or otherwise.
This weekend my nephew graduated and we had something else come up and ended up not attending - I am sure the family drama will be in full swing again soon. I was the bigger person however and liked his pics on Facebook and commented on them as well. so just a small touch of what has been going on in my life.

O and we went to the amusement park again. I had trouble fastening my lapbar again. This was my #1 push last time. I hope that I can use it as a motivator again.

I hope my message and post finds you all doing well and without the drama!!

Hope to hear from you all soon!!
JULIE

Happy New Year! I hope the quiet around here means that everyone is just busy with good things. The holidays were stressful and super busy for me but things are slowing down now.

Busy here too with doing lots of crafts things with the kiddos. We did the hand print turkeys yesterday. Today we are going to make some thanks cards...I write down what they are thankful for and they put stickers on them and whatever else...they have always loved doing these cards every year.

Hope every one has a happy and healthy Thanksgiving Day!!!

Lots of prep to be done for the holidays! We made turkey handprints today and will finish our craft with them tomorrow.
I think I'm finally back on track as far as eating and exercise go. I know john has made it safely out of the country and we've been talking almost daily, so that truly helps me move forward. Also, my daughter is motivated to work toward her junior black belt in martial arts so I'm helping her. And that helps me!
Anyone have fun plans for thanksgiving? I'm going to my brother's (mostly so I don't have to cook) then leaving the kids with grandma and grandpa for the weekend so I can get some holiday shopping done. This will be quite the challenge this year on my own, especially because hubby usually does the bulk of it!
Hope everyone is well!

So, I got to go visit john, but it was bittersweet. 4 days is not nearly enough time. Now he leaves for overseas very soon, and we will be out of contact for an undetermined amount of time. It's tough to focus on more than just making it through the day, but having a purpose as a mom and a job taking care of such wonderful little ones helps.
I am trying to focus on all the fun holiday crafts I get to do with the little ones. I do more crafts from October through December than I do the rest of the year combined! What are some of everyone's favorites? Maybe we could start a thread to exchange fresh ideas?

So how is everyone doing? Didn't so well this last weekend. Had a cupcake and some candy...ugh!!! We celebrated my son's 18th birthday on Saturday....can't believe my baby is now an adult.

Have a great day all:)

Happy Monday! New week, new start! This week I'm focusing on portion control. It'll be hard with all the Halloween candy around, but I'm committed to tracking all week, even if I go over.
I have a super busy week planned, but I also have a plan for the week!
I hope everyone is well. Enjoy your week.

Hi! We have been busy getting ready for Halloween, both in my Childcare and with the kiddos. I love this time do the year because I have so much inspiration to do fun crafts with the little ones.
Great news - I will get to see my hubby before he actually ships off overseas! He is limited how far he can travel, so I'm taking my kids out of school and on a road trip to see him in. Mississippi. emoticon

Hope everyone has a great weekend. I hope to be heading to Chicago - for their fright fest. I will not be on Spark at all this weekend. But I will be back on Tuesday.

Toni - Hope the price is right was fun!

Jen - Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Nothing wrong with getting out of the house!

Enjoy your weekend everyone.

I hope everyone enjoyed their goodies. Congrats to Katibug49 and Toni501 for being at the top of the leaderboard for all of our goals!! Keep up the good work. Check out all of your goodies!! Enjoy your weekend!

Have fun on the Price is Right! Sounds like a ton of fun.
I'm missing my hubby a lot but still keeping busy. Sometimes I feel a little crazy for working out at the dojo 3-4 times a week but right now that's the only time I really leave the house except for grocery shopping and church.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Mine will be filled with costume-making. I need to teach a friend of mine how to use a sewing machine too. Should be fun.

Good morning all,

Been quit busy this week so far but I've manage to get in my walking and eating healthy. Won't be able to walk to much more outside so I take in as much as I can. The weather is getting colder and days are getting shorter...ugh!!!

Lets all have a happy and healthy day:) emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Toni, we can continue to do the sweet challenge if everyone wants to. I think it worked well for most of you! Not as much for me - got to work on the emotional eating still.

Again a reminder to everyone to track your goals - if you don't I don't have an accurate count to give out goodies. Oh and September goodies will be given out this weekend.

Fright fest this weekend for me.

We went for a walk today and the kids all got to pick up 3 or 4 leaves. When we got back to the school, we painted with the leaves. They had fun. I was hoping to have leaf prints to decorate the door and their cubbies but that didn't quite happen. But they do have colorful leaf painting to go home!! The main thing was that they had fun.

My kids like to paint too. We try to paint with different items to make it fun. Last week we were talking about the letter d and we were talking about the dentist. SO we painted a tooth cut out with a paint brush - our "toothpaste" was paint, a little cornstarch and baby wash. It smelled good and the kids had a blast.

We also have painted with cars, magnets, and feathers in the last few weeks!

Have a great weekend everyone!!

My little ones love painting too. A great way for them to express themselves and have something to keep at the end.
Any good plans for the weekend? I'm headed out of town to visit my parents. It'll be nice to have their help with my kids for a few days.

Hi! Just checking in. Hubby has officially left and I'm starting to get back into a good routine, I think. Exercise and eating have been a little better, still a ways to go.
Looks like I've been missing out on some good discussion. I'll try to be on here more when I have the time.

great idea! I took my kiddos to the local library a few weeks ago and she had put some jewels in a wad of stuff that dried and the kids had to spray with water bottles to get it to "melt" and keep the jewels, I thought that was cute too. Think it was baking soda and salt and flour but I can ask and repost when I find out. I like the ice idea for summer!

Happy Friday all!

I froze dinosaurs in ice blocks and the kids had a blast getting them out. I gave them plastic hammers, toothbrushes, and paint brushes. Then I added spray bottles with warm water. They were so excited as they got the dinos free. I added some warm water to help with the cold. It was still pretty cold. They were having so much fun that I traded the hammers and paintbrushes for cups, bowls and strainers. They played for over an hour!! :) It was a lot of fun.

So glad it is Friday! Ready for the weekend!!

Toni - I have just been working later in the evening and then spending time with my family - haven't had as much computer time. I used to leave work around 3 and now closer to 5 530. But I go in at 7.

Our center has part of the program. We don't watch tv. We play outside everyday - shoot for at least 2 - 30 minute periods weather permitting. We do give the children juice with their snack but only 1 - 1/2 cup then they get water. We vary our snacks and have updated them greatly but still have some sweet snacks. we do 2 fruits and 2 veggies each day!
Not part of the program that you are talking about - just part of the our program.


Cooler here in the morning and in the evening but still pretty warm during the day.

Hope everyone is having a great week.

5-2-1-0 is a national healthy kids program. Google it. There are usually people in your hospital or city/town that have it all you have to do is join. I know there is grant money available for you to apply for if you take the training but you can benefit from just reading their goals and hopping on board. I got on my local one and they actually paid us for the first 2 hour training, at $20 an hour!! and then mileage after- who would argue to that!! It stands for 5 fruits and veggies, 2 hours or less a day screen time (home and daycare) 1 hour physical activity and 0 sugar drinks (milk and water only) they give lots of information to send home too...... I hope they have it in your area!!

Head out now... it is soooo cold!! HAHA but we are going to walk one of my paths. ttfn!!

Welcome Kay, im not sure if i've seen you here before. Hope to get to knowing you bette. I have to ask, what is 5210?

Julie, sorry to hear your working at night. Is this at the daycare center? Doesn't it show that I haven't been posting because I have been every day but sat and sun. I go down and I click on tracking. Let me know if I'm doing something wrong.

Had a very busy weekend...did lots of yard work so great exercise minutes!!!

Lets all have a great Monday:)

Hope everyone had a great weekend! We are our town's fall festival - the Apple Festival. It has been a little busy with 2 state fairs and then the festival. I did pretty good at the festival - fair food wise - I had one funnel cake and shared a lemon shake-up with my daughter. Otherwise I had a fajita. so not too bad.

Hope everyone is doing better at the sweets challenge then I am!!

Tomorrow is my 4 month anniversary - it seems like yesterday and then it seems like years have gone by. I love being married!! :)

The short week made it feel like a whole week of Mondays! I was ready for Friday too. Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Our lawn mower quit it will be a few weeks before it can be fixed so went and bought one to use until we can get ours back because the grass was getting high. My husband mowed but I raked all the grass out of the lawn. Our old mower mulched so this was not necessary. Whew I am tired but got some fitness minutes in!!

I gave out goodies for August today!

Congrats Katibug - Kay! You received an award for having the highest number of fitness minutes AND the highest number of Spark points!

Toni - Congrats to you too as you were 2nd in fitness minutes and 3rd in spark points by just a hair!

I was 3rd in fitness and 2nd in points. And Tami also had some spark points.

Please be sure to track the team goals all month long - this helps with your points too!
Kay - you tracked Huddles 2 times but you actually huddled 4!
Toni - you huddled 9 times but it was not tracked!

Toni was the only one to track that she tracked her food - 1 time.
I tracked discussion boards - 4 times.

I know that all of us should have had more points!

DON'T FORGET TO TRACK!!

Hi everyone!!!
Ok, so maybe I haven't been checking in as much as I want to. I like this sweets challenge, but that's not usually my issue. I'm struggling with stress eating. I'm working my way back to being a regular here at SP but it may be a few weeks, as I have a lot on my plate right now.
I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!

I also made it a team goal to avoid unhealthy snacks every day for 6 days each week. It will be a checkmark on the other goals list.

I made a forum that we can go to each day to encourage each other!!

So let's start the no unhealthy sweets for at least 2 weeks & then go from there. I say we each find one "healthy" sweet treat that we can do to help us make it through. How about we start the challenge on 9/3/13, that gets us through labor day weekend. However, we need to find time to post to keep us at it. I know it's hard with our jobs but we can do it. I'm up for it, anyone else?



Be the best you can be every day!
