Sorry I missed the last Spark lunch; we were on vacation in Canada, the Methow Valley and Roslyn. Re. Labor Day weekend: we're tied up Sunday and Monday, but available Saturday. Interested to hear more about your running, Karri.

That is great Polly! I decided to start the C25K training it is slower than I need at the beginning so it's hard not to try to skip ahead but I am excited to see it through! I won't be done before the 5k in October but hopefully it will help me run more than walk on that one! Yay!

Happy Saturday everyone!

Yes Lunch was fun - nice to get away with the girls after being home with the kids for 5 days straight.

I ran 6 miles tonight out on the Greenway. It was a beautiful evening and also nice to have some different scenery from my same Ellensburg country roads!

Had a GREAT time at lunch today with you fellow Sparkers! Thanks so much for coming out and catching up! I am still full but it was all SO good! Yum!

Penny - have a great trip this weekend... can't wait to see some photo's from your trek!

Polly - praying for your girlie to feel better... and for the continued training - you are an inspiration! I will have to check out the runners site and see about that 5K in October!? Yikes? (Maybe if I find shoes that don't make me bleed?! LOL!)

Kim - you deserved a break and I'm glad you and your girlie came to play with us too! Oh, and thanks for ordering the sushi so I could try it, too! =o)

Dori, Nikki, Suzanne, and everyone else - we missed you!

We are talking about planning another Team Walk & Coffee date on a Saturday soon... will anyone actually be in town over Labor Day - or should we wait until the following wknd? Let me know!

OK - let's say Wednesday at 11:45 for lunch... (Polly you can come when you can!) and as far as where to meet... I am open to whatever?! What about New York Teriyaki on N 1st where Denny's used to be!? It's maybe a few more dollars than Subway or Taco Bell - and it's not 'fast' food - but they are usually pretty quick and there are some healthy choices!? Or if everyone would rather stick to something familiar - we can try the Subway there on N 1st again - the seating is tight - but we know what to order anyway?!

I'd love to pick somewhere with outdoor seating downtown - but with everyone's budgets and timeframes - and the fact that this is last minute - I am concerned that everyone who wants to come can make it!

Let me know what you all think!?

I will be working on Wednesday so can probably join in for a short lunch.
Can't wait to see your new car Karrilee.
Any new ideas for lunch spots that aren't too far away from downtown?

Lunch on Wed sounds good, if I don't called for jury duty. I'm on call for two weeks, and then back to teaching. I got a job! Been unemployed since last April, so this is good. Lost a few more pounds and hoping to make my goal in a few more months.

Hey there...

Anyone up for coffee or lunch on Wednesday!? Let me know?!

We are heading back to school this week - so that means back to a regular routine (and some quiet time during the days, too!) I am hoping to finally press through this plateau this fall! It seems I have been stuck since May - give a pound or two up and down! So - I know I need to once again focus on adding strength training again... and am looking forward to adding some running back into my routine as well!

How are you all doing?! Are you feeling empowered and on track for Fall? Have you made any new goals recently?! I know I need to do that as well - besides the broad "lose weight' goal, of course!

My boys start school September 2, Austin has orientation for kindergarten for two hours a day next week though. I am hoping the classes I take are not too tough. The one I really am not looking forward to is business law, as law does not interest me at all! My other classes are computer programming (which will probably be difficult for me it it involves a lot of memorizing like I anticipate), Intro to database (I don't think that will be hard), Intro to spreadsheets (should be easy), and advanced manage & maintaining PC (not sure about this one, but it is the one I look forward to the most). Anyway I look at it I looks like a huge load!

Pauline - you can do it!!! We'll have to plan a lunch before you go back to school! Give me a week or so to fall into a routine and we'll plan an outing!!!

What classes are you taking this next quarter!? Anything fun!? =op When do your boys go back to school?

I am sure Nikki is suffering in Hawaii as we speak... praying for Ross to adjust to college life and have a GREAT roommate too!

How was the rafting trip(s), Polly?!

Dori - I bought a(nother) new pair of shoes - just Nikes that were on clearance for $30 and guess what?! another blister?! Apparently maybe I am not the size I think I am!? I am actually between an 8 and an 8-1/2... both my new pairs are 8s... maybe if I can just lose a few more pounds they will fit right?! Yeesh!? They were such a great deal - I couldn't pass 'em up! I am praying that they will work... (I know, I know - I shouldn't have to break them in...!?) =oP

Penny - wow - you sound super busy with all your cabbage and canning and all... hope you guys have been able to enjoy some good rides this summer as well! Especially with this 'cooler' weather!?

Everyone else - jump in and let us know what you've been up to this summer... if you need support or have any yummy recipes to share... or just check in to say hi to let us know that you are still out there!

Hey Team Yakima!

Where are you all?! LOL?! I hope you are enjoying the final days of Summer! We go back to school next week already!? Crazy!?

Anyway - hopefully with back to school, we will find a routine again and get back to our regularly scheduled lunches and walks!

How has summer treated you all!? Are you finding yourself off track, or on track, or somewhere in the middle?!

Congrats! That is quite an accomplishment! Yes - there are a TON of stairs there! So fun!

I finally got my car last night and am pretty happy about it! We are going out tonight with friends to have coffee and maybe see The Time Travelers Wife... getting together with old friends is always a nice way to spend a Saturday evening! Then tomorrow night we're meeting up with another couple while our dd spends the night at a friends and prepares to go to Tri-Cities to go Back to School shopping! Her first time going without me! We'll see how she does! I am such a Deal finder and bargain hunter - I know she is afraid of spending too much and not bringing enough home - she doesn't want to blow her chance! LOL! Hopefully she will find some great sales and come home with some fun things!!!

I can't believe summer is almost over... we go back on the 25th! I say we because it involves the whole family and also because I am volunteering for the school photo's again - which means I will work a full day on that day too!? I am thinkin' we'll just plan on take out that night - or something quick and easy!

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!

My summer is over on the 24th of Aug. I return to school for our professional days then have kids on Wed. I have enjoyed my summer and hope to continue my workout habit throughout the school year. When life gets hectic I tend to forget about me. I have to be first in order to help others later.
Well I have to say I was pretty proud of myself this last week. We went to Long Beach and had a blast. I decided to walk up the Astoria Column and boy does that have a lot of steps. I climbed to the top and down one time. Also, I went to a lighthouse and walked up that. Life is good.

Hey everyone...

How are you all doing?! I am loving the cooler days... the rain yesterday was nice too! I do love the sun - but those triple digits were a bit much!

I have finished my latest clients' project - always fun to hand it over when it's complete! ...and we are hoping to sign papers on our new (to us) car tomorrow afternoon! I am trying not to get too excited until it is in my driveway! It's so pretty and after almost 2 months of being without a car I am REALLY excited!

I can't believe summer is almost done and it is back to school time already!? My dd is going shopping on Monday in the Tri-Cities - first time going without me... we'll see how she does and what she comes home with! We love to shop together - and I think if she doesn't find an amazing deal - she may need to go back with me... I know she doesn't want to blow her money and come home with just a few things... she knows if she doesn't do it right - she won't be allowed to go without me again anytime soon! LOL! I am praying that she finds some really great deals though! I have trained her pretty well!

So - maybe once school is back we can plan another lunch date!? We start up again in West Valley on the 25th... so maybe later that week!? Let me know!

I agree with all of you that this summer has gone so fast. I have had lots of mini vacations so haven't been home much. Mal and my 20th wedding anniversary was last week and my parent's 50th was 2 weeks before that. We leave Monday for Hawaii and will be gone until Aug 28th. There goes the summer....

Hope to see you all at lunch. Take care, Nicki

Wow-August already???
I've been making raspberry jam and just got some apricots from a friend last night so will make some jam with those as well (if we don't eat them all up first-they are soooo good)

Went down to Vantage on the boat yesterday to try to stay cool-my oldest son is getting to be quite the waterskiier and my 5 yr old daughter rode the tube for the first time-Fun times!

Hope to see a few people at lunch on Wednesday!
