MJ, this is great news! You can do it. Hang in there. emoticon

My WooHoo started on Sunday and is still ongoing. I am thrilled that Germany won the soccer world cup! It's been 24 years since the last one, which I was too little to actually remember.

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

Woo Hoo! Down 5.4 pounds since last Wednesday. Sure, it's mostly because I've been on liquid protein diet since Saturday in preparation for my surgery on the 28th, but I'm still happy about it! Only 4.6 pounds to go to meet my goal before surgery. HAPPY!

We got a much better estimate on one of the repairs we need to make before we can sell the house, plus one of the other repairs is being covered under our warranty from work done last fall. Whew!!!!! Also: Scale moving down after removing a few food intolerances from my diet. Yay!

Sarah, that is awesome! emoticon

There are three things I am happy about today/this week:

emoticon I am honored and thrilled to have been given the opportunity to be a part of our team's leadership! Thank you. I hope I can fill my predecessors' shoes!

emoticon I am excited about tomorrow's match between the US and Germany. Yes, I am rooting for my German boys, but if the US wins I'll be happy, too. Our house is divided: One of my sons is rooting for Germany along with me while my other son and my husband are rooting for the US. I wish the game was not during work hours so we could watch it live, but the DVR is set and we sure will catch up tomorrow night. :)

emoticon Our move is almost done and over with. I have just a few items to get from the old home's yard and then we are DONE. We are loving the new house and, while it is a lot of work, it is so much fun arranging all the furniture and decorating in a new home. This weekend we should be done unpacking, after that I will tackle the yard (my vegetables need to go in the ground soon as they are outgrowing their containers and we will change the landscaping of the front and side yard.

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

emoticon looks like there is a lot to celebrate this week! Congratulations everyone!

My WooHoo is that my hubby and I have started another virtual training program together. We are calling it a "welcome home" challenge, and it will bring us through the last 90 days of deployment until he returns home.

My Woo Hoo is that I've been back on track with my food logging and pay attention to what I'm eating and my calorie range for the second day in a row. Not going to weigh myself for a bit because I need to see a really significant number to keep me motivated at this point. Right now what is keeping me motivated is a picture my grandson took of me with my phone which scared me straight! I sure wish it was 80% exercise 20% diet instead of the other way around, but it is what it is and I'm proud that I did well on day one and am rocking day 2! emoticon

Woo Hoo MJ! I'm glad you're seeing results!
My woo hoo is that this week I went and did weights by myself (not a class) yesterday and today. I went really heavy and I'm feeling it! It hurts so good :)

If you're going to rise, you might as well shine!

It is Woo Hoo Wednesday! What have you got to emoticon about today? Please share with us and let us celebrate along with you.

My emoticon today is that I have been able to move just a little bit more lately, even though it has been cooler and rainy, which usually stiffens me up considerably. I've been doing a version of wall sitting and lifting trying to strengthen both my upper body, lower body, and core at the same time without overexerting my joints. I've also pushed just a tiny bit harder lately to get more movement in and get more strength training in. It's working! emoticon

Remember you are yourself, you know your limits, listen to your body and go with the flow. Push when needed.

Do an extra set during your workout. It might hurt, burn, or whatever, but you will feel better that you achieved a little more today!

I have not checked in here in a while, because I really did not have any Woohoo! moments in a long time. A lot of great posts here. Ginchifer, how awesome is that that you and your deployed husband were able to (virtually) run together!

My Woohoo! today is that I finally notice feeling a little better, both physically and mentally, and that today, after avoiding the scale since the beginning of the month, I happily report 3.2 pounds lost. Yay!

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

My WOOHOO today is twofold:

First, my son's artwork got featured in the NEISD gallery tonight, and won an award!

Second, I've discovered that I really, really love kettlebells and I'm hoping they will help me to keep up some great combined cardio/ST!

Woo Hoo! Portand sounds great! I have never been there but it is always fun to go on vacation somewhere! I have a great woo hoo today! I met a great guy on a dating online site and we have been texting and talking on the phone and having a lot of fun getting to know each other! He is in Florida on a business trip right now but he wakes me up each morning with a text that says Good Morning Babe! he calls me sweetie too! He is a sweetheart! Can't wait to meet him when he come back from Florida! Woo hoo!

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.

This is a great day for WOOHOOs from me! I'm having a wonderful time on vacation in Portland with my husband, and have already met two Sparkers here, including the San Antonio Spark Team's very own Greg (GHK1962)! He is just as awesome in real life as online, and was kind enough to give us a tour through downtown Portland the day we arrived. :)

So sorry Amanda you are not feeling good but is good you identified what happened! Hope you get some rest tonight!

Well I have had a sad day as one of my remaining uncles passed away today. He was so funny and always made us laugh at family reunions and will be greatly missed. But I know he is in Heaven with my Mom.

I did have a woo hoo and that is I have sleep apnea and I got a new cpap machine Monday and have had two really good nights of sleep and have felt so much better! Amazing what good sleep will do.

Hope everyone had a good day! Darla

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.

For the last two days, my diet has been accidentally cross-contaminated by gluten. This has led to severe flaring of the rash on my fingers and really terrible insomnia last night. I'm exhausted this morning and know that I'm going to be fighting my appetite all day, because I have a real bad tendency to overeat when I haven't gotten enough sleep (and I only got about 4 hours last night, boo!). I know this doesnt' seem like a woohoo - and it isn't - but I'm trying not to dwell on the negative, but learn to focus on the positive even when I'm feeling terrible. So, for the positive:

- I've discovered the source of the cross-contamination, and can avoid it in the future, so I'll be less likely to hurt like this again!

- Before this cross-contamination, I'd managed to go 2.5 months without eating any grace of gluten, which is by far the longest I've ever made it before. It's definitely getting easier the longer I go.

- There is coffee in the world. Focus on that, and maybe I'll get through the day. ;P

It's a bit feeble, but I'm trying! Woohoo for seeing the positive even when I feel bad!

My emoticon is that I had a great theological discussion with friends. I love those conversations.

emoticon My daughter and I have stuck to this weight loss journey since Jan 18 and have lost some weight, not a tremendous amount, but some. We are keeping each other accountable with diet and exercise and plan to keep it up. We have gone to the gym for zumba for the last 2 nights and plan to go again tonight. emoticon We are going to do it this time.

Wow, lots to emoticon

I'm a day late, but that's my WooHoo. I got sick on Tuesday and was finally able to eat some normal food this morning! Feeling much better now, and hoping to get back at running tonight.

Good for you, Carol!! First steps are often the hardest to take. I will follow your lead and commit to working out tonite -- the first time in 2 weeks, which was the first time in several months....

Hi Darla! Nice to hear from you!

My emoticon is that I made it through an entire water aerobics class yesterday, and this morning I made myself get up at 6 a.m., even though I slept almost not at all. I am trying to set a routine of getting up at the same time whether I have my grandkids at 6:30 a.m. or not. This morning I don't have them until 11:00. I've spent the morning cleaning the living room and enjoying some time online with a nice cup of coffee. I'm sure I'll sleep good tonight. I'm pretty proud of myself for shaking off some ugly negativity of the last few days with positive action. So, emoticon for me! Yay!

Rest of the week looks great too! Love the 60's and 70's temperature such perfect weather! Getting out tomorrow to go to Wal Mart to pick up my meds and get some groceries pretty much everything in the apt is gone! Need some meat to put with some things I already have and must have fruits and veggies! I did join Weight Watchers but have not been back to weigh in! Have not been able to stick to plan due to no food in the house and been ordering out way too much but tomorrow will be back on track and figure out a better time than sat morning to go to WW. I am just not a morning person! I have 3 grown kids a son and daughter in law my son is 29 and my daughter in law is 27 then my daughter is 30 and she has my 6 year old granddaughter and her boyfriends has a daughter and son from a previous marriage and they have dated long distance for a year now! I don't know how they do it. He lives in Texas and she lives in Arizona! But they went to high school together so they know each other really well! So happy to hear everyone doing so well! And congrats on the new nephew! I have lots of nieces and nephews and even great nieces and nephews! they are making me feel old! Have fun with the new sweet baby boy! Darla

I'm shouting emoticon as I start to pack for my weekend away. An extra day off work, some time away from the kids, and a visit with my sister! Much needed.

Woohoo! Wednesday is actually Saturday on my crazy schedule! I am so thankful I am off today! When the weather is bad a travel agent isn't having a good time! Unless they are off work.... My Wednesday routine is to walk the dog, go visit boyfriend's elderly relatives, grocery shop and enjoy the day with my honey. I think the dog will be happy, I didn't walk him in yesterdays ickiness. And I REALLY need to go grocery shopping! The only fresh fruit left in the house are a few bananas and the only fresh veggies right now are lettuce and cabbage. I've eaten it all! On my new Spark journey, I now need to wedge in a gym visit.... hmmm. I think it will be after the dog walk.

Once you stop living, you start dying.... I ain't got time for that!!

emoticon for an extra 2 hours of sleep last night. My insomnia came back Monday night and yesterday I was sooo tired all day long. My grandkids got picked up an hour early last night, at 9:30 instead of 10:30 and are not getting dropped off until 8 this morning so I got a full 8 hours of sleep last night. I've been averaging 6 to 6.5 hours for about a month now with only 3 hours Monday night. Woke up feeling so much more alert, rested, and not headachy. Yay!

Wow, Beanie! Great attitude. I love it!

My Woo Hoo is that I am 2 days away from 3 weeks of staying completely on track with my water, nutrition, and exercise goals. It feels good to have all of the "Big 3" right where they need to be (for now) and I'm pretty darn proud of it. I usually falter a little here and there when I'm trying to be good, but not this time. I promised myself 30 days of staying the course and I'm keeping that promise!
