HEY Joanna ~

I admire your ability to care for horses. I was raised as a city girl. When I was young I remember having to stay at my great grandmother's, never got over the the fear of larger animals. Never got over the the fear of catching a baseball, obviously I hated most sports, except ice skating and swimming. My husband loved his horses and kept them at gram's farm.

Ann, yep I saw those carts and I might just get one someday, but I live in the country with nothing close to walk to. I have a little over 5 miles just to get to a country store which I almost never shop at because the prices are so high. Milk here sells for anywhere from 2.49 to 3.19 a gallon, at that country store they jump it up to 4.29 just because they are the only country store around. I drive the extra 3 miles into town and hit a grocery.

I like the ideal of the cart though something on wheels for the farmers market and fairs...that sounds like a great ideal. I can tuck it into my back seat or trunk and just carry it around when I am walking. I love to buy things I just hate carrying them around. Good one....I will look and see what there is offered here.


Wednesday is here...the Farrier is already in the barn trimming horses feet. Got the grandson out there with him. I know there is so much to do...with this winter clean up. I have taken the blankets off all the horses and now I have to clean them up and pack them away until next winter. My guys are all fuzzy and love to get out in the sand and just roll like dogs. Good hard brushing does wonders for the coats and pulling out the tangles in the manes and tails is a chore. I don't like cutting the tangles out ...makes their manes and tails so thin and choppy. So I take my time and pull with my fingers. I use a spray bottle of baby oil in small amounts and take my time separating the knots and then pulling them straight. Once I get them cleaned up I do what they call a dry wash...I use a warm wet towel with a light cleanser and rub their hair until I can get the majority of dirt out. I then take additional towels and rub it dry. I do use a warm water solution for washing ..I put it in a spray bottle so I don't get it all over the place. the problem is I have to redo the bottle several times...during each procedure. But, I am use to it and it works. Once I am done....I braid the tails and maybe the manes depending on the horse, but all the tails get braided and warped and covered with old socks. I have so many miss matched socks. What I do is cut the tops into four slices down the sides...leaving the rest of the sock alone. I drop the braided tail into the sock to keep it clean and secure...then I use the tops to tie it up into the tail. I wind the ends through the braid so it will not fall off. I don't mind looking at the old socks around the farm...now when I am away and at a show or someone out in the open of course I am not using old socks...I have nice tail wraps for that, but using the socks is a way to recycle them and believe me I have tons of them. I am always left with one sock coming out of the dryer.

emoticon Hey, Joanna

You must have seen those collapsable personal shopping carts, one can purchase. Living in the city I have one. I bought it mostly to shop the farmer's market when in season. Also when I moved from the country to the city, I sold my car to see how long I could survive with out one, since everything is with in walking distance. Had a wee little dog, that loved to ride in it. We (me & my dog, Mitzi) were welcomed into many a stores, that were charmed by Mitizi. My little dog passed away last October from old age. I surely miss her. Have a rescued older cat, he's a nice old boy but he was mistreated when young and it took sometime for him, to actually sit on one's lap. Several years later, he has become a pest, wanting to be petted 24-7!

Here where I shop most of the stores have a shopping cart similar to when you grocery shop. And some of them have a small hand held carry cart that you can use to hold your items until you get to the cash register. A few have similar hand held bags that can be carried in the store...but at check out you have to return them. Then of course there are the ones that have nothing at all...which I hate. I buy very little because I hate carrying all that around.

Never heard of such a thing NO hand held shopping baskets or push carts!

I am trying to remember when stores started handing out advertised cloth shopping bags for free?

Most of the big box stores and some grocery stores used to hand them out for free for advertising I suppose but now they have switched to selling them.

Only the department stores and pharmacy stores and some small grocery items are popped into small plastic bags for holding your purchases.

Sewing cloth shopping bags that fold up to a little pouch to pop into ones purse, is a great way to get rid of a sewer's fabric horde! emoticon Which I plan to do and sell them at the Craft & Farmer's Market.

I agree I love a good bargain but truthfully I am so drained from shopping I almost hate to go out to a crowd and shop any more. I always put it of until the last minute. Just a phobia I guess of crowds. I like the gathering but I hate the standing in line waiting, the irony of having to hang on to your items because the stores do not supply baskets to put them in. The more I think about shopping the less I like it. Now if I can just go and look then I like a crowd, but when I have to engage in buying no....let me wait to the last minute.

Good morning all my Saturday Spark Friends

Ok to keep it short but active. I am getting ready to do some stretches...I did manage to get my bedroom cleaned yesterday before heading out. I am hoping to do some garage sale rummaging today...well actually planning to travel to some vintage resell shops. Here they are called antiques but hopefully they will not be too expensive. I am looking for something unique that will catch my eye. A table but not just a table...a sofa style display table that can sit in front of a big window to display a horse statue I bought a few weeks ago. I don't want to buy a brand new table unless it happens to be perfect. I want it to look older and special. So as soon as I am finished here I am heading out and about. Wish me luck. Saturday shopping.

Joanna

Before I joined spark, I was lucky to drink 8oz of water a week! Though I suppose one could include a portion of calorie ladened water in alcohol?

Since I live in the southern interior of the Okanagan Region of British Columbia, Candaa, our local water supply comes from the Okanagan Lake. Yuck stuff! I bought a filtered Water jug, have no problem, getting my 8 glasses of filtered water each day/ I like it ice cold.

Great tips Jen, thank you. I have however heard that if you drink water cold it helps burn calories. A suggestion to you and the other members. I have been doing research on the Paleo Diet, AKA: The Caveman Diet where you only eat fruits, veggies, and meats. They suggested to use Coconut Sugar or Agave Nectar in place of white sugar, I believe you folks call it Caster?? Any way, Coconut sugar is better for you, it isn't processed and it doesn't spike your insulin levels like the white sugar does. You can Google search it.

Cheating doesn't benefit anyone, it's always best to be truthful, especially with ones self. Any exercise no matter how small you may think it, is still exercise.


Have a great day!
Hugs, Linda :)

I would be delighted to help in any way I can. do not try to lose too fast. make sure you fill in your daily food diary and do not cheat. it is not worth it
Drink plenty of water I like mine warm with a slice of lemon and somtimes a sweetener in it. it helps to clean out your insides Tr to stear clear of all fizzy drinks even the low cal ones
If you are cooking for a family you would find the spark peoplecook book very useful I have to work out smaller amounts all the time for myself or freeze portions
I wonder if you have children at home if you would rather send me a private reply give me all the details please do that.
I have been away but managed to stay the same weight ,














































































































































































I am pleased to hear you are going to try and lose weight and I am sure spark people will help you.
If you are really obese you should see your docter first and let him know you are goimg to diet in a sensible way.
I will be happy to help in any way I can if you would like to send me a personal message telling me more about your self ,
do use the daily food diary it makes me really think about what i put in my mouth each day. the cook book is also very good










hope to hear from irish residents

Hi, Old Member here but haven't been on for some time now. I'm looking for someone to buddy up. I live in city centre and would like someone to go running/jogging (very slowly at the moment) around there. I'm still trying to find a good place to do it and so have been forced to do on the spot jogging in my living room.

If anyone is interested, please leave a comment on my blog.

If that is not feasible, then someone just to share how it's going. I've tried to do this before and though I've managed to get down to a size 12 on my good days and size 14 on my bad days, I still would like to have someone to talk to; just quick comments back and forth if possible.

Thank you.

Kya

Hi everyone!
Anyone looking for a buddy? Even a motivational one? Someone I could team up with and we could help each other stay on track? I live in Wexford County. I used to take the dog walking in the morning and that became a chore. Had to keep stopping and starting so he could sniff everything! Ha! Ha! Then I started walking on my own and really enjoyed it but got out of the habit. I had even built up to running a bit and I'm 52! I loved running when I was younger! Missing a day turned into missing a week and now it's been about a month.

Anyone interested, let me know!

Hya,
i'm new to Sparkpeople, but i'm loving the Buddy idea! My worst enemy is lack of motivation and not sticking to routines. i joined the Westwood Gym in Clontarf and wonder if there is anyone out there using the same gym who would like to buddy up with me? we wouldn't necessarily have to do the same workouts, but just meet up, share our progress and push eachother to continue on. if anyone is interested just send me a message emoticon

Start today, don't give up untill you reach your goal!

Hi, I would love to buddy up to encourage and be encouraged to stay on track. I'm a mum of 3 and while I slip the odd time on my diet, (its allowed!) I have my diet fairly on track, the major problem I have is exercise and staying motivated and committed. Would love to make some new friends who are in the same boat.

HI Aine,
I'm new here, and in same boat as yourself (think about the same weight too!) Have Christening and Wedding to get to (different brother's!) end of this year, and at my age do not want another family gathering where I'm the 'fat' one - and I so want to go shopping and get a wow outfit.
If you're still looking for a buddy, I could do with all the encourage and motivation to keep me on track, and would be delighted to do the same,
All the best, AM
P.S. How do you do the signature to show current and goal weight?? :)

Hi,
I have just started on this and would love to have somebody to talk to and confide in about how I am doing and likewise maybe help them and be there for them with support and encouragement. I am 41, mother of three. I have three stone to lose and like yourself I would like to feel like I am in control of myself again. I am fed up getting upset or depressed while clothes shopping, putting off going out as I hate the way I look.

Hi. I'm new to this and could really do with some buddys on here. We could help motivate each other and share what's going on and any tips that we may come across. So feel free to drop me a line ;-)

Hello team members! I am looking for an online virtual fitness buddy to keep me accountable!! I am too tired, too cold, or too something or other all the time. I go to the gym when I can fit it in. I want to jog outdoors too. I need to get going. I am doing pretty well on nutrition I think. I would like to loose 10 instead of gain 10 for the holidays. It is cold and icy here. The terrain is hilly so it makes for a challenge jogging. I am a positive person with a good attitude usually. Anyone up for it?? Have a great day!!!

Lord, I love thee
For the music of the waters, For the wild wind's melody, For the arch of heaven's splendor, For the secrets of the sea. For the wonders of the night-time, For the glory of the day, For the blessed joy of living, Lord I love thee. For the pearly flush of rose leaves, For the flower scented air, For the trembling hush of dawning, For all the beauty of everywhere, For the joy of friendly faces, For the graces of each day, For the hope of winning heaven, Lord I love thee.

In relation to diet/exercise, generally because you're burning more calories the body is craving more. Try to eat 5-6 times a day in small portions; that way the body metabolises the food more efficiently, and does'nt store what it can't use as fat.I'll be your buddy.

Hi Guys,
I've been a member of the team for a while, but I don't post too much.
Lately, I've increased my exercise, and (no surprise) my appetite has increased. I need encouragement to plan my meals AND snacks. I don't have such a problem planning meals, but planning for an evening snack kind of gets me. I find that I'm eating dinner late and then I'm hungry again (or maybe I just feel like I want to eat...I can't tell) before bed.

I guess I'll have to take a moment to figure out if I'm really hungry and plan accordingly.

Oh, and I don't have a buddy. I've reached out to a few people and I was a good buddy to them, but they were...well...deadbeats. :/
I need a buddy who is really a buddy. Someone who will keep me motivated and is genuinely into losing some weight and getting fit!

I'm tired of people who aren't really interested.
