Hi everyone!
No big plans for tonight. Actually I will probably take the Christmas decorations down. We had a nice Christmas yesterday at my sisters.

Kind of a sad day. The Leslie Sansone Walk Club that I have been a member of since 2008 decided a year ago to shut down. They stopped charging us membership fees a year ago and announced that last night would be it. I have known about this a whole year, but I guess I didn't believe it. Like Sparks, I have met some super nice people from all over that gave me support, butt kicking and challenges along the way, and it's just sad I won't have that anymore. I did get on the site still today, though ;-) Ha!

Cynthia--I would love to see the changes you've made in the house sometime. Have fun at Dusters and Dominos.

Vicki--If you have a craft show at your house next summer, let me know. :-)

Have a very HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!!!

Jo

Hi ALL!! Please encluded me in that list Vicki!! Like everyone else I am struggling. I am always here just quiet. I check in but just don't type. Part of my depressing way. Sorry! I WILL WORK ON THIS!!
I am work on the house. Much to my hubby's dismay. We are on a cement slab--Had a water leak back in Sept. Had mold-ripped out two walls and carpet.Got re walled :) But now it sets. Bought new paint yesterday. Have to redo woodwork floor boards. So I had my brother measure for bathroom also. Going to either get a new tub-shower or just a shower. Redo floor in there also. The whole plan is to recarpet the whole house.Paint living room. While we are working on this I am going to go through things to get ready for a garage sale in the spring.
While all this is going on I will be to busy to keep thinking of food like I normally do. Right? Anyway that is the plan.
My sister and I wallpapered the kitchen Saturday & I love it. It made it look so warm. This smething I have been wanting to do for along time. Get things done & Shrink the fat. MY 2013 goals for the year.
Dusters & dominoes tonight. Happy New Years Cindy

Rita, I agree that cards is a lost art anymore. Everything is electronic now. Sam loves to play Crazy 8 and Old Maid. We used to play those games with my grandma for hours on end.

Vicki, hope that dropping a couple of teams will help you focus on your weight loss this year. The book basically talks about how she picked a different resolution for each month and focused on goals related to it. For example, for January she focused on energy and her goals were things like picking up for 15 minutes at night to get rid of the clutter, etc. Seems like a good idea to me so I'm trying it.

Lisa, no New Year's Eve plans for me. We will just kick back at home and relax. I agree that it is easier to resist the first one.

I need to try to get Jamie into the doctor today or Wednesday. She has been dealing with stuff for over a week now and doesn't seem to be getting better.

Happy New Year's Eve! Hope you all have fun planned for tonight with family and friends. Love the new Year; I don't make resolutions, but it's still a new start even with old goals. I've learned a lot about my eating and drinking habits this year, such as:
It's easier to say no to the first one (cookie, pop, beer) than to the second or third.
A good amount of protein with my oatmeal at breakfast will make breakfast last longer.

Hope you all gained some insight as well. Have a great day!

Hubby and I play any kind of cards. We also love to play and yes its hard to find people who like to do that now. We played Rummy, pitch and spoons last night. Once again had way to much food but lots of fun visiting Oh well its only once a year and the fellowship was so good it was worth it.
Taking down the tree today, starting income taxes, and next Sunday we start square dancing again, will need to get on the treadmill this week so I will be in shape...I've been a little lax about it this past month. Of course we have started with the babies all ready, so much for any downtime for this lady Sounds like I need to get extra healthy to just keep up with myself in 2013.. :0
Pancakes and all the fixings sound good unfortunately it is one of my downfalls also
Everyone have a great day.

What kind of cards do you play Rita? We always played pitch or my dad played Fuchs a good old German game.

3rd is pretty good Jo. We are finished with 8th grade basketball so I probably don't have sports until summer. Drew didn't make a baseball team and his old one disbanded.

Colleen good job on the exercise. I'm impressed.

Lisa, I'm starting the challenge today as well. I need to do something.

Vicki, do you have any more craft shows coming up?

I finished the book yesterday The Happiness Project. It is very good and gave me some ideas about goals to work on for next year along with losing weight.

Hi LLREED, I'm starting the challenge Jan 6. It's there official start date and it gives me time to keep figuring out this site...ha
Sounds like everybody is keeping busy.
I started out Sat. doing good on food, then my husband made blueberry pancakes, eggs, bacon, and toast for dinner, (its what our boys wanted) soooo who am I to pass up a good meal that I DID NOT have to cook..yea anyway that definately pushed me way over on the calories. I did get on the treadmill 60 min again so I did have a plus.

Colleen you will get to know all of us soon and we will get to know you too - glad your working out on your treadmill keep up the good work - yes having the kids home is extra food but I love it then I can cook and it will be gone but now both of my kids are watching what they eat so that helps me too -

Shelly glad the dressers worked out and I would have done the same thing getting the room all cleaned up makes you feel better and makes the room look great and giving things away is good too remember you can do the swap shop on FB if you need too - Colleen is right that was good exercise too

Rita have fun at your party

Lisa glad the cookies turned out - think I may join that challenge too but going to wait til Monday to start

Jo good picture of you - getting 3rd place that is not so bad - Enjoy your Christmas with family

Well one more day of Jan and I need to lose one pound to say I had a loss for the year can't believe I gained back 6 pounds but oh well will do better this year and if not I am done with trying and will just maintain but am going to give it my best shot

Welcome Coleen!

Happy Birthday, Stacy!!

Wow, Rita, that sounds fun. Wish I could find some people around here who like to play cards. Seems to be a lost art.

I was on track to be within calorie range today but I found a recipe for Chocolate Crinkle Cookies and just HAD to try it. I have tried for years to find one that worked (most of them just run all over the pan). They are awesome! Unfortunately, the SO is not real big on chocolate so I'll be taking some to work Mon. and sending some to my son. He'll enjoy them. Took the dog for a 45 min. walk this afternoon and will get on the elliptical and do a ST workout soon. Tomorrow we go to North Platte again to pick up our neighbor. Maybe she'll stay home for awhile now.

Colleen, I'm starting the Jumpstart challenge tomorrow. When did you start?

Shelly, I agree with Colleen; count your cleaning time as cardio, it's definitely a workout.

Good for you Colleen on the exercising and eating. I am doing terrible and need to get it in gear. Hopefully the challenge will help.

I did get dressers for the boys yesterday. As a result I spent the entire day cleaning their room but it does look nice now. Now i need to haul stuff to my sisters and the Goodwill.

Good Morning, I heard the fitness center is real nice, I meant to go to the open house but got busy. It is in with those tennis courts, by the park. My future daughter in law goes to it and she likes it. Next time I am in town I should stop and check it out. We are about 10 miles away.
Happy belated bday to Stacy...... I'm trying, lol
I did get on my treadmill last night and burned some calories. I should do it more often, I feel so much better when I do it. And was under on my calorie counter, yea.

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes. My work is having a luncheon for me but it will be kind of a blah night b/c my husband has to be at the stupid holiday tournament so it will just be me hanging out with the kiddos tonight. I have a pretty nice boss and he decided about a year ago that we could take an extra day off for our b-day and the great thing is that it can be any day and doesn't have to be on your b-day and it doesn't count against our vacation time and we still get paid. Yay!

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be

I started back on program the day after Christmas again....It is a lifelong battle and never ends. I did do pretty good through 'Dec ..never lost but never gained either.
Are you close enough to BB to take advantage of the wellness center Colleen? Un fortunately I am not but a few years back I was driving to town three days a week so I joined and used it. I hear it is even nicer now that they have moved and expanded. It seemed easier to find time for exercise when I went there don't know why as I had to add an hour driving time to an hour of exercise but I did it faithfully
Happy Birthday Stacy..You picked a cold time to be born :)...Guess I'm not much better I picked January 6th to get married...you didn't have much say in it but I did....LOL

Happy birthday Stacy! Hope you have a great day and nice long weekend!

Lisa, I'm thinking of joining the challenge as well. I need something to get me started again.

I took the Xmas tree down yesterday and started cleaning the house up. I think Jerrod and I are goingtomlook at some dressers today for Sam and Drew's room. I also need to be working on my CPLP project. It will be a lot of work.

Colleen, we have a weigh-in forum where you can track your weight, but we don't have a specific day to weigh.
It really is a shock sometimes to look at all the calories or fat that we're eating, even after tracking for 4 years.
I joined the Spark 'January Jumpstart' challenge again. I really enjoyed it last year.
We got a little more snow last night, too, but so very little that I'm not sure if it's snow or frost.

Thank you everybody, I will try to get to know everybody on this page. Definately my kind of people.....I have been doing pretty good at logging my food and fitness. Wow I didn't realise I ate so much fat.. have been going over on that one.lol Gives me something to think about food wise.
My son got the snow swept off yesterday, a lot of packed snow here now, so very slick to drive on.
Trying to motivate to get on my treadmill daily, just can never find the perfect time. Not a morning person, and like to spend time with family in the evenings. Have a great day, Colleen
ps is there a friday weight in?

Lisa it snowed here over night just a dusting and that is enough for me

emoticon Colleen so glad you joined our group - I think GRANNIE31252 (Rita) may live close to you and next time I and hubby go to Victoria Springs maybe we could meet and go for a walk and maybe Rita could join us - all ideas how to lose weight are welcome and we will help you as much as we can too and your welcome to vent here anytime - Welcome aboard

Shelly hope you didn't get to much snow - and you and I are really going to be good in 2013

Stacy you have a birthday coming up have a good time

Really going to try and get Christmas down so I can put up my New Years stuff and Snowmen then start working on my workout plan back to counting cals and the scale likes me for that may only have a pound or two off for the year but I will take that then really work hard to be at goal this year for I am dropping a few teams here at sparks so I can focus on me and not sitting here at the computer - so speaking of that better get on the treadmill - have a great weekend all

Welcome to the team, Coleen! Yes, we got some of that snow; actually about 4 inches. It looks really pretty.

Stacy, I never have tried to get up in the morning to work out, other than the 40 min. walk I take with the dog every morning and the only reason I do that is so the dog gets some exercise. If it was just me, I'd wait 'til I get home and just get on the elliptical. I've never been much of a morning person, I'd rather stay up late than get up early. How did you manage to get your BD off? That's awesome!

Shelly, I hope things settle down for you soon so you can get your rhythm back. In the meantime--baby steps!

Have a great Fri.

Welcome to the team Coleen. Spark is a really great site with lots of wonderful people.

Got in a decent treadmill workout last night. I wanted to go longer than 30 minutes but I was feeling guilty b/c the kids hadn't seen me all day and wanted to spend some time with mom. It would be so much easier if I could just get my butt out of bed in the a.m. and workout then. That's going to be my goal for the new year. Maybe if I can get on a streak with it, then I can keep it going.

I get to take Monday off for my birthday so I'll get another 4 day weekend. I'm excited about that.

Hope everyone has a good day!

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be

Welcome to the team Colleen2334! Stop by and chat with us anyday.

Glad that some of you are getting back on track. I'm still over eating and haven't exercised in a while. Time to get back on track!

Hope Gerti will be okay Vicki.

We are getting some snow as well. Heard it is only supposed to be 1-2 inches.

It's snowing! Light fluffy stuff, not much moisture, but it's pretty.
Came in within calorie range finally yesterday. Got on the elliptical but no ST yet. I'll get that done tonight. I'm only working half a day tomorrow and then just 'til noon on Sat. Wish I could have worked all day tomorrow and taken Sat. off, but that didn't work for the bosses. Oh well. Going to North Platte on Sun. to pick up our neighbor, she's been staying with family in KS for the last week.
Have a great day!

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Now it's time to start getting back in the swing of things for me. I went to the gym tonight and rode the bike for 45 minutes and also did a 19 minute class on my new Zumba Fitness Core wii game that I got for Christmas. Just those 19 minutes kicked my behind, but I loved it.

Hi everyone. It sounds like everyone had a great Christmas. We went to Shickley Monday morning and we got back late last night. The kids got a ton of stuff and I have no idea where we are going to put any of it but since I have to work today that's my DH problem to figure out! LOL! I'm all messed up on my days. I hate having a holiday like that during the week. The scale was not at all happy with me today so I will definitly be exercising tonight!

Merry Christmas, everyone!
We are back from our celebration. Had a good time except that I've been having severe stomach cramps throughout the day. They seem to have gone away now. I drank some baking soda water hoping that may ease the tension. I guess we'll see. My sis spent most of the evening working on a last minute gift but we had a good visit anyway. Everyone liked the lamps that my SO makes out of Jack Daniels bottles. He's getting pretty good at it.
My son is staying over again tonight so we'll have breakfast before he leaves in the morning and then go through some towels and dishes to see what kind of supplies he's needing. His former girlfriend finally got all her stuff out of his apartment so he's needing to restock. After he leaves, I'll try to get the craft room straightened upand do a little cleaning. Probably won't take the tree and decorations down until this weekend. It's getting pretty dry and losing a lot of needles.
We drove back in the snow, but it hasn't amounted to much; just enough to make travel a little slower.

I hope that everyone has safe travels and enjoys the time with their families.

Everyone arrived safely here and we went out to dinner last night and then picked Jerrod up at the airport at 11:45 p.m. Even Sam went to the airport although we did have to wake him up to go in. Everyone is still sleeping here. We'll see Jerrod's family later and then everyone will go to Lincoln for my family's Xmas.

Merry Christmas to everyone!

Hi everyone. The girls and I got all of our baking done yesterday. Today was Doug, I and the girls' Christmas. Tomorrow we will be going to my in-laws and then staying all night. I was supposed to work on Monday morning but they called late Friday and said that we were going to be closed since the President was giving State and Federal employees the day off. Yay! Anyway we're going to Shickley tomorrow so that should be fun.

As I will be spending the next couple of days with my family and won't be on Spark, I hope that everyone has a wonderul holiday season!

That IS a lot of celebrating, Vicki. Just remember, there is a lot of that stuff that doesn't necessarily only come around at Christmas. I gave up eating mashed potatoes at holiday meals because I can make those anytime. I feel like I'm in a better position this year than I've ever been to avoid overeating. I've been doing a lot of thinking over the last couple weeks about why I eat so much. There's a forum on the community message board about the difference between compulsive eating and emotional eating that has been pretty eye-opening.

As far as my plans go: My younger son is a truck driver for the Coop in Ainsworth and he's got a load of feed going south of Merriman tomorrow morning. I'm right in between so he's going to load his truck today and come this far. He'll stay overnight and deliver his load while I'm at work tomorrow morning and then go with us to my brother's for Christmas Eve. I've got the cookies done for work tomorrow and for supper tomorrow night. I need to make a potato casserole for supper tomorrow and I'm going to make enchiladas for supper tonight and send a pan with Curtis.
We'll be home on Christmas Day. Probably try to get my craft room rearranged; it's kind of a mess.

Shelly, have fun with the family. Hope you're able to spend some time alone with Jerrod, too.

Better get going, I make the enchilada shells from scratch so it takes a while.

Vicki, wow that is a lot of parties. Try not to load up on the healthy stuff and just bites of the stuff that isn't as good.

I'm waiting for all the family to show up today. The house is as clean as it is going to get for now. Always something to do though. Jerrod's plane arrives at 11:30 tonight and his parents and one sister and her family will arrive sometime today.

Lisa, sorry that your son will not be home. That has to be so hard.

Vicki, don't wait til Wednesday. Try to make better choices at the parties and not look at it as a chance to eat whatever you want.

I am now off work until January 2nd. That is one nice perk of working at an university although that seems to be about it these days. My entire team is very depressed about what is going on and we seem to have no support from our VP. There doesn't seem to be anything that we can do so I'm not going to worry about it any more.

Jerrod will be home late tomorrow and all his family should be showing up sometime tomorrow as well. They all left yesterday or today. I need to go back to the stores as I seem to have lost a couple of gifts. Makes me so mad that I did it or left it at the store - not sure which.

I am going through the same thing, Stacy. Soooo slow at work and so much to do at home. Fortunately, my co-worker is gone for a week so that leaves a little more for me to do. I even got rid of one of the bosses yesterday, tomorrow, and Mon. Yeah! Things are so much less complicated when she's gone.
Did good again today. Feel so much better. Found out today that my soldier son will not be getting leave to come home for Christmas. No idea when I'll get to see him or if he'll be deployed. Guess that's the Army for you.

Late check in for me today. Had a board meeting and then a team meeting. Things are depressing at work and I'm guessing our team will be split apart.

No school for the kids again today. Most of our town was without power for most of yesterday. Thankful that we live closer to Omaha and had power the entire time.

Hope that all of you are doing well. Good on staying low on the calorie range Lisa and Stacy. Good for you on getting so much stuff done Vicki. Glad the world did not end.

Hi everyone! Well I still had to go to the party last night but I kept my eating under control and only had one cocktail so not too bad. I'm glad this is the last day for the week. I just can't handle the end of the year b/c it's so slow at the office but I'm busy at home so I sit here all day wishing I was at home so I could be doing something!

Vicki - glad you got all of your cleaning done.

I'm jealous of those of you who got snow! We got nothing.
Stacy, I have that 'bored to death' feeling most days; at least you are alone and don't have to look busy all day. That's more tiring than actually working all day.
I actually came in on the bottom of my calorie range today!

Then I came home and got on the elliptical and did a new Spark video. It was one of the video of the day features called Creative Core Workout. Pretty challenging.
So now I need to finish the one decoration that I decided to finish. I gave up on the other one because I don't have the floss to do it anyway.
Have a great Fri.

Hi everyone! Well unfortunately they didn't close the courthouse so I'm stuck at work all by myself. I am bored out of my mind! I'll probably just stay here through my lunch hour b/c even though I only live like 3 blocks away, that seems a long way when you're walking on ice. I'm hoping my boss cancels his Christmas party tonight but I doubt that's going to happen. Oh well at least the hubby and kids don't have to get out in this as they called off school. Hope everyone is staying warm!

Shelly - glad you don't have to go out in this but hope you can get the driveway done.

Vicki - have fun with hell day. Hope you can get out.

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be

Hope everyone is safe and sound. No school in Gretna. Creighton is even staring late but I was planning to work from home anyway. It will take a while to get the driveway cleared and I don't think the snow blower works. A lot of people in the Omaha area are without power. Glad we aren't one of them.

Vicki luckily my lab is moving to a temporary location on the same floor. But after next semester I'm moving down a floor and have to share space with Phonathon. Not happy about it as it makes no sense but management doesn't seem to care.

Late checking in today. Spent day 2 of moving my lab at work. What a mess!

Stacy, congrats on the weight loss. That is fantastic!

Sorry to hear about the knee Jo. Hope your son will be okay.

I'm planning to bunkered down as well and anticipating no school tomorrow. Sam is out playing in it right now.

Finished all my shopping yesterday. Dropped Sam off at school at 7:45 a.m. and wasn't home until 4 p.m

Hi everyone. Well somehow I managed to have 1.5 lb. loss at W.W. last night. I'm not really sure how but I'll take it! In anticipation of the storm I called off my Yoga class for tonight so I'm going to try and go use the treadmill. It's right next door so surely I'll be able to make it that far! The school here is getting out early at 1:30. I suppose in anticipation of the storm. I'm betting they don't have school tomorrow which I think would be fine for my husband! Anyway hope everyone has a great day!

Hi everyone!
Beauty & The Beast was absolutely wonderful!!! We had a great time! Perah loved it! Her eyes were glued to the stage the whole time! lol

Preston hurt his knee. He managed to play Saturday and scored 20 points, but he got home and his knee was hurting and really swollen. He wears a sleave on it, but just keeps injuring it. I made him stay home from the tourn on Sunday and ice it, and the swelling has gone down considerably. Keeping my fingers crossed!

The flu is going around school pretty bad here too. Just 2 more days and they are on Christmas break!

Good night everyone!!! Have a good one!!

Jo

Yep Vicki that's Doug's uncle. I'm feeling a little better today. My voice is still going in and out but hopefully that gets better soon.

Not much new to report today. Busy day at work and then I have my W.W. meeting tonight. Hopefully the weigh-in isn't too terrible. I keep bouncing b/wn the same 5 lbs again.

Hi everyone. Well I went to work today but I'm still feeling like crud. Now I don't hardly have a voice. Tired of feeling sick! Oh well hopefully by the end of the week I'll feel better.

Vicki - My husband's uncle, Bill Anderson, lives in Seward. I will have to do that if I get back to Seward anytime soon.

Shelly - Glad Anthony's diabetes is doing better for right now. I think that it's incredibly difficult to discipline these days but parents just have to be firm and stick to what they know is right. We live in such a crazy culture that it's hard to shield them from everything.

Sorry you missed the Xmas party Stacy. Hope everyone is better soon. Anthony is doing better right now with the diabetes but it is an up and down thing. He is getting the pump and we have an appointment on the 2nd to learn how to use it.

Vicki, glad the party went well.

I do worry about Anthony. Jerrod is getting all the boys guns for Xmas and it bothers me especially in light of all the shootings. Teenagers tend to be unstable as it is. However as a parent how does one discipline kids these days? He lost his phone all day yesterday but got it back today for school. He may have lost his job as he had calls about work and when I told him to call and check he refused.
