How is everyone doing?

I'm trying to get on track again and, at least this week, I've done some sort of activity each day.

Good luck to you all on your fitness journey.

How's everyone doing with their goals?

Same as usual for me. I hope to break this cycle soon.

Hope you all had a pleasant and safe 4th of July!

I'm doing more fitness activities, but still not regularly and at the level I was before. I'm not going to let it get me down. I'm gonna keep at it! I need to keep remembering that I need to make it happen. No one else. It's an easy thing to forget.

Be happy everyone.

Hey local Sparkers!

How have you all been? How are you doing on your goals?

I keep slipping, and going on a cruise last week didn't help any, lol. I didn't do too badly and I am recovering, but it gets frustrating, too. The good thing is I had a blast! Now back to normal and working my way back to healthy habits.

Hope you guys are doing well.

I'm still working towards getting back into the fitness groove. Some days are successful and others are not. I'm not going to give up, though!

Take care, all.

I joined the 10 min. a day fitness challenge in hopes that I can get myself back on a fitness track. I'll let you know how I do :) So far so good (but it has only been 3-4 days so far, lol)

I haven't heard from you guys in a while. How's everyone doing?

I've been doing pretty good tracking and eating healthy, but not so good at keeping up with my fitness. :( I'm gonna keep on keepin on, though :)

How's everyone been? Meeting your goals?

I've been doing well maintaining, which would be good except that I'm still trying to lose more, lol. Ah well, if I could motivate myself to get back to working out, that might happen.

How about you guys?

Great idea compensating with a super healthy dinner! No sense in getting down on yourself for that stuff :)

One of my original goals with spark people was to check nutrition before I went out to eat, so I learned pretty quick where and what I could eat when not eating at home. Taco Bell has nothing I want to eat because anything that would fit in my tracker wouldn't fill me up and leave me satisfied. When the kids are desperate for Taco Bell, then I head to the local Chinese place that offers a big helping of steamed shrimp, chicken and veggies for the same calorie count (and loads less fat) as two tacos. Usually I can't eat the whole thing in one sitting!

Thanks Redwritinghood! Each day I feel better and I am able to get around more-still against doctor's orders. I made a BIG mistake today though. We went to Taco Bell for lunch and I ordered what I thought was a not too heavy lunch-1 Beefy crunch burrito and 1 Spicy Buffalo chicken griller. I also had a Pina Colada Freeze. I entered it all in my food tracker and was SHOCKED by the over 1,000 calories and 37 grams of fat I ate! Luckily, I hadn't had breakfast and can have a super healthy dinner. Water will be the beverage of the day from here on out. I love being back with Sparkpeople!

Happy Monday all! For many of us it's our first day back to work after July 4th. For me, it's my first day back after surgery last week. It was a little rough but I made it! Climbing the stairs and coming back down was probably not a good choice but accompanying the student is in my job description. I am relaxing now with ice on my hip as I have only taken one pain pill since surgery. I don't like meds, especially pain meds but that's another story. Sending you all wishes for a happy day to start a successful week! emoticon

Hi Patti!

Welcome to the group :)

Nope. No teaching job, yet. I've been searching for both teaching and advising (at the college level) positions. I'll admit that I've been searching harder for the advising positions, though. I'm not worried. The job for me will present itself if I'm persistent and patient :)

Redwritinghood, have you found a teaching position yet? I am certified in K-6 and ESE but have not gotten hired yet. My degree is not in teaching but I have been an ESE para for 4 years now.

Welcome to our new members :)

How's everyone doing with their goals? I'm maintaining, which is better than gaining, I guess. I'm happy, the kids are happy, and we're all healthy :)

It's been cold here, but not that cold!

I've been trying to catch up on things that I've been putting off because of school. I also need to apply for my certs with the DOE.

Everyone seems to be rather spread out. We might need to try to get a couple different groups together.

How are you doing now that school is back in full swing?
I'm still in North Carolina, but I'm getting very tired of COLD! It was 20 this morning and the lows are expected to be in the 20s for at least a week. I'm longing for Florida warmth.

Did you decide on a time to walk together?

I'm glad the kids are great and that you are keeping on track. Way to go. I'm just trying to make it to Tuesday. Love the boys but haven't had any good me time since December 17th, so I'm looking forward to school starting back up even if I'm not looking forward to homework.

My Goals: 10% at a time.

I'm celebrating the new year with an announcement in the the coordinating activities discussion forum :) Specifically for Hernando Co. but north Pasco or south Citrus might want to respond, too :)

And do you have a school in mind where you do or do not want to work? Perhaps you'd better send Sparkmail for this one, especially if you have some places you don't want to work.

For example, Fox Chapel Middle School is looking for an ESE teacher now.
Have you thought of job sharing to start with so that you could work either in the morning or afternoon?

Either a part-time advising position or working as an ESE or Reading resource teacher. I prefer part-time right now (I want to be "mom" for a while before I go full time).

Sorry, I thought I had put in a response in all the active blogs so I'd know when something was posted here. I've not received any notifications. Congratulations on your graduating with honors. Do you have a position lined up after Christmas?

The weather was certainly beautiful today. I'm going swimming after I finish this. I should be walking (training for virtual 5 K) but it might be cooler tomorrow, so swimming today, walking tomorrow.

I've been trying to not be stressed out. Things breaking left and right in the house (dishwasher, AC), and on top of that I may have to say goodbye to the new guy.

Trying to be strong. Succeeding most of the time.

On a happier front: Weight-wise I lost another few pounds. At 69 pounds lost now :)

Hello fellow Sparkers,

I found out today that most of my school portfolio has been graded and is at fulfilled! I just need to do a couple tweaks and I am done with it forever! I should be able to get that done before I start my final internship this fall.

Things are pretty good with the new guy, but this long-distance thing is so difficult.

Other than that, life is very good :)

I topped off the week and lost another 2 pounds :D Uber happy about that. I didn't expect it, the way things have been going. I hope that means I'm out of my slump and headed for ONEderland, but if not I know I will make it through slowly but surely.

I changed up my workout this week, so I'm not sure if that helped or what. I'm gonna try it again at least once this week (oh, and I think I'm trying a Zumba class Tuesday) so let's see if that shakes things up. I know that talking about it in my blog really helped out my total attitude (not that it was bad before, it just gave me a renewed focus, of sorts).

This week: tweaking the portfolio, paperwork, organizing the house, and fun with kids.

Life is good :)

Hello all,

I lost three more pounds. Yippee! I've put in almost an hour of Pilates, and about 4 miles of walk/jogging this week. I hope to add at least another 3mi this week. We shall see.

Portfolio work is turned in for grading and I will begin tweaking this week.

The kids and I have selected some summer fun and will start going to have that tomorrow after mowing the lawn.

How's everyone else doing?

Take care all,

Hey everyone! (((hugs)))

Last week was fun, but busy. Busy with my school portfolio, but I snuck in fun with the kids whenever I could. Now I wait for the results of grading so I can then get as much tweaking done to it before I get into my final internship this fall. This week I hope to get some much needed organization done with the house. My goal is to get this all done before my final internship starts, too. As for weight and fitness goals I am staying on track with my fitness. I walk/jogged almost 9 miles this week. My goal is a daily mile, but I end up doing it a few times a week and then do it for about 3 miles, so go me! On top of that I did about an hour of Pilates this week. Go me, part 2. :) As for weight goals, I'm still doing the up down up down of the same 4-5 pounds thing but working on the down part now, so I hope for a pound or two loss beyond that 4-5 pounds coming up soon before it goes up down again. Because of the up down thing I measured myself, so I don't get too discouraged, and saw that I lost a couple of inches from last time I measured (about 6-8 weeks ago, I think) so yay for the non-scale victory. I'll take what I can get :)

Just needed to share: Finally I hit 60 pounds lost!!! It seemed like it took forever to get there. Now I'm over the halfway hump! :) Next goal: ONEderland!

Very happy today.

Hello everyone! :)

A big welcome to our new members :)

I've passed all my certification exams (yippee!) and I am almost officially in my final internship this fall. I just need all the scores to catch up to prove I've passed my exams. How is everyone else doing personally, nutritionally and fitness-wise?

For me, I've been tracking, but frustrated that I'm not losing. However, my clothes are getting too big and I'm looking pretty darn good :) I'll take it.

Hope to hear updates from you all soon.

Welcome to the new members! Glad you found us :)

I'm studying for my certification exams and finishing up my portfolio. What's everyone else up to lately?

I did lose 2 more pounds--yea! How are you all doing on your fitness and weight-loss goals? Good on both, I hope.

Have a great week!

I've met my goal and deadline for CDN, and despite the stress of it and my other school stuff I managed to lose almost three pounds. :)

How is everyone else doing?

How's everyone doing? I've been busy, busy, busy with homework and CDN (it's a portfolio required for my degree). Trying to meet all my deadlines.

Good news is I've finally hit the 50 lb. loss! Yippee! :)

Hi. Sorry I haven't been around much. Way to go to drop the 2 extra pounds and the date too. Awesome.

I joined a Biggest Loser group from my husband's work and it is giving me a bit more motivation so that is good. Up to the point I joined I was going the wrong way with weight and fitness goals. Turning it around though.

How is your teaching going?

How's everyone doing with their weight loss goals? Fitness goals?

I finally stopped yo-yoing with the same 3-4 pounds and then dropped 2 more :) I've been okay with my fitness, too. As much as I can with the time I have to spare, anyway. :)

Oh, and I went on my first date since my husband passed away last year. It turned out pretty good all around :)

I hope everyone is doing well. School and such is keeping me really busy. I am frustrated that no matter what I've been doing I can't seem to get the scale to move. I'm going to need to do some more measurements and see some results there to avoid getting frustrated.

Hey, sorry I've been missing in action. I'm trying to cut down on some computer time because once I get started here, I go go go.

I will admit I am not doing better with the fitness. I strained some muscles and they don't seem to be recovering as quickly as I'd like.

I'll be doing this internship at Bayonet Pt. Middle.

I won't give up. I will just do it as often as I can and see what happens :) I felt pretty good after I did the one mile, so I don't think it will be too long before I can jog a whole 5k. It will just take some time to work up to it. It's a great feeling knowing I can do it.

Scale-schmale. lol. Lots of ways to measure, and if you end up backsliding, then just get back up and start up again :) We are all behind ya! :)

Hi,

I'm sorry I've been missing in action the last few days. Between boys and other stuff, it has been busy around here. They started back yesterday so I took time yesterday morning to do some major cleaning.

My niece used to go to Oakstead before Odessa opened. She is out of zone for both schools - zone for Pasco, I think, but my sister works over in Oldsmar so it makes it much easier for her to participate in school activities to have her over there.

Oh well, I'd better get busy and get stuff done before I have to pick the little one up from VPK.

On the running/jogging thing, don't give up completely even if you can only go do it say on Saturday morning, it is better than not doing it at all. I'm still debating (and I have a long time to worry about it) whether I want a treadmill or a new bike when income tax refunds finally get here.

My Goals: 10% at a time.

Red, did you find out which school you'll be at? I work for the school system in Pasco County. I'm currently at Oakstead Elementary, but I have also taught at Trinity and Gulfside.

BTW, I was happy to find this local group. I'm just getting started with SP and I probably put on 10 pounds over the winter break alone. I'm scared to get on the scale. I'll step on in a couple of weeks after I've been eating healthier for a while.

Okay, so I didn't do another walk/jog mile, yet. I think this will be tough this semester, since I'm finding it difficult to do it and the semester really hasn't started until today! Will see what today and tomorrow bring my way for this.

How's everyone else doing on their fitness, family and other such stuff?

Did a one mile walk/jog yesterday. Knees are sore, but not bad. I survived and figure I'll be good to go again tomorrow :)

It is awesome to do. I need to do it again, but badly need some new shoes first and that won't happen until I get my income tax refund back (unless I win the lottery).

Isn't it odd when it gets colder here than up north? I have friends and family in Michigan who think it's hysterical when it happens. However, they love visiting during the winter time :)

This morning at 7:30, it was colder here than it was in NY, NY or some places in Ohio. But it is much warmer here now. 70s are perfect.

Me, either. It's not bad when you think about how cold it is up north. However, I prefer it be in the 70s. I think I've lived in FL too long, lol.

Here's hoping the organizing went well. The plan was to have a clean-a-thon today after a short hike. Four to five hours after leaving for the hike, we finally made it back home to tired and hungry to do a whole lot. At least, I got my exercise minutes in and then some.

Thank you (((hugs)))

It's always okay not to like the bad behavior :) At the end of the day they all look like angels when they sleep :)

I've been trying to get both houses organized before this new semester gets here. It's going to be a tough one.

I like your 2012 wish. That is sweet.

Your year this year has to be better than last years, I'm sure. I'm going to quadruple you blessings and quarter your hardships.

Took the boys bike riding on the Withlacoochee Trail yesterday. After that, your reminder to enjoy each other is greatly appreciated because they acted like little monsters. I still love them though despite sometimes not liking them as much as I should.

I hope 2012 sees your blessings doubled and your hardships halved.

Take care all, and remember to enjoy each other and all the little things.

I still have some relatives in some of the Pasco schools. Only one niece and two nephews haven't graduated yet and one of them is a senior who unfortunately if he doesn't straighten up a bit may be a senior again next year. Have all sorts of second and further cousins at all sorts of schools - I don't try to keep track.

I still wish you guys could have went with us although I'm not sure I would have enjoyed it if I had to pay the regular price of $13 - a bit pricy for me.

I'd better go. L is hankering for the computer. He was so well behaved yesterday and his new teacher says he is fine in her class so my DH thinks I should cancel his appointment with the specialist next week. I still haven't decided. He was great yesterday though.

I'm glad you guys had fun and had no trouble with the tickets :)

I'll be doing the internship in Pasco--not sure which school.

I wish I had read your message before we went. The boys had a blast. The coupons only worked through Saturday. I was delighted that they gave me no trouble at all using them.

Are you doing your internship in this county or Hillsborough?

lol, I understand completely. The kids seem to keep you from getting a whole lot done sometimes :)

However, I have to go back to work next week and then the week after that it's work and school/internship. Next semester will be very tricky to balance everything. I know I can do it, I'm just a bit nervous about doing it well.

I'm sure my kids would enjoy a trip to Homassassa Springs. Want company? We couldn't do it Friday this week or Wed. and Thursday of next week, but just about any of the other days would work for us.

We still haven't completely recovered completely from the post-nasal drip.

I'm trying to decide whether I am brave enough to take the boys by myself to Homassassa Springs State Park. I have a two coupons for free admission that expire at the end of the year. I received them at the Rails to Trails biking fundraiser back in early October and haven't had a chance to use them yet - between cub scout camping and S getting sick after that, Halloween and L getting sick, working on our floor and Thanksgiving and S getting sick, continued working on the floor and DH and I getting sick, and then L and then S and well you see how it goes.

Winding down can definitely be a good thing.

I really have to get my mind in gear because I have been horrible with eating lately. Is it the 9th of January yet?

I usually don't stay up that late, but there were things to take care of and wind down time :)

Little Bit is feeling better, but still has a cough from post-nasal drip.
