That is terrific Gail! I admire your dedication. I'm trying to get a consistent exercise streak going and so far it hasn't happened - stuff keeps coming up. I'm going to keep playing around with ways to fit fitness into my schedule - something is bound to work.

Well it is Sunday instead of Wed but my woo hoo is I had a awesome Christmas with seeing two of my brothers and their wife and girlfriend! We havent' seen each other in 5 years since our Mom died 5 years ago so it was awesome seeing them and spending time with them even though I too am sick with upper respiratory infection and two earaches. But feeling better today! Woo hoo! Happy to be back posting on the team! emoticon

Woo Hoo! It's Wednesday! emoticon

My Woo Hoo is that even though I'm sick with whatever has blown in (congestion, coughing, aches), I'm still moving and still taking care of business. Stretching and meditation done, Vitamins and Emergen-C taken, and now the real reward of the day - a warm, luscious, comforting cup of coffee. Woo Hoo for coffee!

My emoticon is that even though work is hectic and stressful, I am grateful for a job that challenges me. Even though I am stressing about school, I am blessed to be able to get a good education. I am grateful for the support of my sparkteam, my friends and my family. My life is full and rich!

Woo Hoo for being here and for being thankful, Suzan! emoticon

Woo Hoo for making my first ever Thai dish. My daughter-in-law requested Thai Red Curry Pork for her birthday dinner. I learned how to work with curry paste and fish sauce, two things I had never used before. Woo Hoo for new learning experiences and delicious, healthy foods full of flavor and veggies! emoticon

Jenn, halfway is awesome!

Darla, congrats on keeping off the weight!

MJ, you are looking great in your new dress!

I lost another 2.8 pounds since my last weigh-in. emoticon
I'd like to lose an average of 2 pounds per week to reach my goal weight by the end of 2016, so I know I need to amp up my exercise/diet a bit.

I did work out 6 out of 7 days a week last week emoticon , but have been battling migraines since Sunday. I still completed my running training on Monday emoticon , even though I had to take it slower than I wanted, but I will not let anything stop my program. Not anymore. I am determined! Today is a training day again and I am ready! emoticon emoticon

One step at a time, one day at a time, one habit at a time.

Those are great woo hoos! Glad things are going well for everyone! My biggest woo hoo still is that I have kept off 40 lbs since December 25th! I haven't lost anymore but just the fact I have not gained anymore makes me happy! It feels great to have it off and be moving better even quit using my cane! I can breathe a lot better too! Happy you are all doing so well! :)

Taking every day as a gift from God and being so thankful for my kids and my very funny granddaughter! Each day is a new day and I am thankful for it.

It's time to wake up this thread. :)

My WooHoo is that I finally lost 2.4 pounds of all the pounds I regained over the summer. It had me bummed for a while and I was a bit scared to weigh in. I sure was relieved to see the small drop after two weeks. I now weigh myself on the 15th and last day of each month to keep track but not obsess over it.

Another WooHoo for cooler temps in the mornings. On Monday it was 66 degrees when we left the house and I loved it.

Last but not least, my sons and I will officially start our Beginner 5K training this Sunday. We are preparing for the Country Run in November and I am thrilled to have a race to get in shape for, especially with my kiddos. :) WooHoo!

One step at a time, one day at a time, one habit at a time.

That is terrific, Sarah! I have to admit, I am a bit jealous...dipping into the pool at noon sounds wonderful!

My emoticon is that my boss is finally back from vacation! I know this sounds crazy, but I swear every time she goes out of town something goes really wrong and we have to try to clean it up before she returns. It's been a long two weeks - I'm glad to have her back in the driver's seat!

Happy emoticon Wednesday! What's your woohoo?

My woohoo is that DH FINALLY went to the doctor yesterday. it's probably been 3 years since he's been, and he is NOT the picture of health. He was diagnosed with diabetes yesterday, and while that is absolutely NOT a woohoo, I am happy that we'll now be on the same page as far as eating healthier and getting exercise. Diabetes runs in his family, so this was pretty expected, esp with his eating habits. Ultimately... my woohoo is that my husband took the first step in taking better care of himself.

That is a great Woo Hoo, Sarah! emoticon

My Woo Hoo is that a dear friend who moved away last year sent me 10 pounds of sweet Vidalia onions, which are my favorite, from Mississippi! The package arrived today with the sweetest and funniest card. Made my day because this is the first time she didn't send a ton of homemade cookies or candies that she knows I shouldn't have and have trouble resisting. Win!

My woohoo is that starting in the next week or two I get to telework once a week. Yeah! I drive about 40 miles round trip into work everyday, so having a day to work from home is going to be awesome.

My Woo Hoo is that my sister-in-law (who I love like a sister) is FINALLY arriving tonight! She is moving back to Texas and will stay with Justin and I for a few weeks until she gets her own apartment. I'm really excited to see her again!

My woo-hoo is that normally I would have given up and lost all motivation to continue, and with the help of SP, I am still going strong and am motivated. I have ate within calories and appropriate portion sizes and exercised according to my plan each day. Woo-hoo!

My WooHoo, is I had a major PR this past Sunday at the Diva run in Galveston. I finally got my 5K in, in under 40 min. Next goal is to do 36 min (12 min miles). But hitting that first goal really gave me the boost I needed to "keep at it"

My Woo Hoo is that after the sushi class Justin and I took on Sunday, I ordered a rice cooker and some other sushi-making supplies from Amazon - it is going to arrive today. Woo Hoo! Can't wait to start making my own sushi!

Happy WooHoo Wednesday everyone! What's your "WooHoo"?

My woohoo is that I managed to do some good speed drills last night on the hill in our neighborhood.

What terrific WOO HOOs from everyone!

MJ, I'm so glad you are hanging in there. What doesn't kill us only makes us stronger.

Sarah, congrats on the land purchase! Where is your new homestead located?

Heidi, I'm so glad you are on the mend and your car situation turned out well.

Tamara, way to go on working out! Getting restarted is not easy, but it is totally worth it.

First - I'm so excited for you, Sarah! Congratulations, land owner. How awesome is that?!
Also I'm so happy you are getting better and not gaining weight, Heidi. Congrats on the car and the good deal! Aaand....HOW WONDERFUL TO HAVE YOU BACK, TAMARA! We have really missed you! Congrats on excuses not keeping you from the gym.

Woo Hoo! Woo Hoo!

I'm going through a rough time financially and physically which has me in a reflective state and in a sad mood off and on, but I'm still here, still strong, still determined. I think that rates me a emoticon Never giving up, never giving in!

My WooHoo Wednesday is that I actually walked the trailhead by my house after getting out of work!! I packed all my stuff and took it with me like usual, but today I didn't let any of my million excuses allow me to bail on myself!! So happy and proud!

My WooHoo! is that I have not gained any weight despite not being able to exercise since the beginning of the month (bad cold followed by a car accident I'm still recovering from). Also, buying my new car went smoothly and I got a great deal, both in terms of price and interest rate for the amount I financed after being able to pay almost a third in cash (mostly what I got from the insurance for my old car which was totaled).

Sarah, congratulations your being land owners. 2.5 acres sounds great. Not too much to manage but enough to have some space and privacy. Are you staying in the NE area of town?

I have a major NSV woohoo today! We closed on our land this morning! :) We are the proud owner of 2.5 acres. Hopefully in the next year or two we'll be building our home on it!

emoticon for the new weedeater, Jennifer! emoticon

My emoticon is three days in a row of staying at or below my carb counts AND at or above my protein counts. This is so hard for me, so keeping the carbs down is a big deal! Tonight's dinner is 15 bean cajun chicken soup (homemade) and the beans will bring me very close to the limit on carbs, but will also take me right to the top of where I need to be today with protein. emoticon

Happy emoticon Wednesday, everyone!

My emoticon is that last night, I got a new weedeater (our old one is not working well) and knocked down most of the high grass and weeds in the back yard! I'm a little sore today, but I have a big sense of accomplishment after getting that done!

Wow, lots of anniversaries! Congratulations to all of you and your loves. Ours is not until May and it will be our 7th. :)

My WooHoo is that I am finally starting to feel better. I've been under the weather since Saturday with Monday being the worst. I have not had a cold this bad in years. I actually had to take off work. I slept a lot these last few days which helped me recover, but now my rhythm is messed up and I can't go to sleep... Well, I will grab a book and head to bed and see what happens.

Another WooHoo is that prior to that darn cold (or whatever it was that I caught) I did go to all three Body Pump classes each week for two weeks in a row. I was actually ready to start using some heavier weights for some of the exercises, but I will probably stay light this Friday when I hope to get back to it, depending on how much coughing I still have going on. I actually really missed my workouts being sick.

One step at a time, one day at a time, one habit at a time.

What terrific emoticon moments - I'm so happy for both of you!

My emoticon for today is that I have successfully completed a big project at work. I have been stressing over it for months, so it feels like a huge weight off of my shoulders to have it done!

Also, I had an endoscopy done and while the doctor did see a bit of inflammation from my acid reflux, there were no other problems evident. I'm very happy to have a clean bill of health!

What a lot of good Woo Hoos, Sarah!

My Woo Hoo is that I've lost almost all of the pound I gained in the last week without trying too hard. 2 more ounces and I'm back to tracking REAL loss and will be lighter than I have been in several decades.

Going on our first official just by ourselves vacation next month to celebrate our 10th anniversary. It's also our make up honeymoon, since our first one had to be cancelled so we could stay in town for the reschedule of our house closing. San Francisco bound and I have a goal of losing another 6 pounds before then! emoticon

Happy emoticon Wednesday!

I have two WooHoo's. First, I've been doing much better this month in regards to what I'm eating. Making much better desicions and not "giving in" as often.

Secondly, we are actually in the middle of buying a piece of property! Very excited about that!

AND... I'll put in a third one... Friday is 11 years of wedded bliss with DH. Yeah! emoticon

Kathleen, on your start page, upper left area, you will see track fitness and track food buttons. Just below that is the area to track weight and other measurements. Hope this helps!

Oh...and if you are wanting to let everyone know about your awesome loss, post it in your status update so all your friends can see!

Yay, Jennifer!

My Woo Hoo is that almost all of my swelling is down after going off diuretics and gaining 6 pounds in fluid. Too early in my journey to be off of them, so back on we went and two days later I'm 5 pounds down and only a tiny bit swollen, so Woo Hoo for modern medicine! emoticon

My Woo Hoo for today is that I got up an hour earlier this morning, got some cleaning done, made a healthy lunch, had some hot tea, played with my puppies, and eased into my morning. I feel so much more awake and ready to tackle the day!

(Normally I hit snooze multiple times, fall out of bed 15 minutes before I am supposed to leave for work, frantically run around looking for clothes, shoes, keys, etc, and then get on the road still half asleep and running late. I decided to try this for a change and I have to say, I'm already loving it!)

My Woo Hoo! is that I didn't let myself get complacent about not going to the gym just because everyone else pooped out on me today. I went by myself and worked harder than normal. I feel very proud of that!

My WooHoo is that I put myself (and my health) first today. I have been dealing with a mean migraine since yesterday morning. I dragged myself to work yesterday, which is what I usually do, but today I decided to stay at home and rest. I am finally starting to feel a bit better. I hope it's gone by tomorrow.

One step at a time, one day at a time, one habit at a time.

Jennifer beat me to it, but WOO HOO! for her and Justin and other new faces at Meditation in the Park last Sunday. This coming Sunday looks very promising as well! emoticon

Sarah, that is absolutely awesome to have a personal trainer offer her services like that. Have fun and get that ST (which I love) work in!

My Woo Hoo is that I made it to the Sunday meditation/yoga with MJ - it was wonderful! I can't wait for the next one!
