Exercise 1st... Spark 2nd. Works for me!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.

Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!

NEVER QUIT =]

People who are CONSTANTLY waiting until the very last minute to do everything or to ask you to do something for them.

Focus on what you CAN do, instead of what you can't!

It's not about lowering the weight on the scale; it's about increasing the weight on the bar!

Stop weighing yourself! Focus on eating healthier & getting stronger. Looking better will simply be an added bonus!

Today's gripe: burning the roof of my mouth!!!

I tried one of those new Evol. burritos yesterday and got fooled by the first two bites being OK and then the third bite exploded with hot filling and burned the hell out of the roof of my mouth.

I haven't enjoyed a bite of food or sip of drink since - it is all painful!

Ugh!

So that hair is still falling into my face...but now my gripe is that my husband only ever wants to watch football when he comes home. We (Antonio and I) actually MISS this guy and finally get time to spend with him and he whines and wants to watch football.

My biggest gripe right now is kinda silly. I have this piece of hair that keeps falling into my face. No matter how much I move it, try to twist it in place, anything.. it just keeps coming back.. and its too smooth for a barrette. (is that spelled right?)
It is really, seriously irritating me.
But, I smile anyway.

Ok, gripe for today. So our work gives us quarterly bonuses if accounting meets it goals. We got one separate check(not taxed) and one that was taxed. Now they want to make up the taxes for the past bonuses out of our checks now. I say no, it was THEIR screw up not ours, and I can't afford it! Grrr.

I'm totally in agreement with you, WINDSONG! My wake-up call today was 4:30AM (yawn) so I could get my workout in before going to work. Glad I got it over with, but I know I'll need a quick nap to re-charge this afternoon.

Rude people in Dr. office waiting rooms really urk me! I mean, most people there are already miserable because they don't feel well, or are taking care of someone who isn't well. Then, there is always that one person who has to openly, loudly complain about everything the entie time they are waiting--the wait is too long, the room is too cold, the chair is too uncomfortable, the TV program is boring......blah, blah, blah

A leaking kitchen sink last night....difficult to cook dinner & clean dishes without a working kitchen sink...gosh, I hope it's fixed by the time I get home today!

I had what appeared to be a beautifully ripe, crisp apple waiting for me as part of my lunch. But, when I cut into it (thank goodness I didn't just start biting into it) it was all spotted brown & rotten inside. All that was missing was the worm. I was really looking forward to that! :(

Thanks ROUTE507TOO for the positive thoughts re: the housing market. I keep trying to tell myself the same thing as far as thinking we just haven't found 'our' house, yet; or it hasn't found us.

Franco - I have to agree with your gripe about the alarm clock. There is nothing worse in the morning than awaking minutes before its going to go off. Ugh. Never a good way to start my day,

Also, I'd been looking at houses for quite some time with my boyfriend (though, he'd been looking for a year before we decided why not just buy together.) I know it can be sooooo frustrating and aggravating. We've been looking on the North Shore of Massachusetts and the market is moving a lot slower than it sounds like it is out there. In any case, I really hope you find something soon. :) Also, keep in mind that all those other houses you got outbid on maybe just weren't the right ones for you. It's out there. You'll find it.

The mail on base. I know my package was received on the 15th at the base post office but have I gotten it yet? NOOOOOOOOOOOOO, I know it was the weekend but did I see it yesterday? nooooooooooooo And it has my new bras in it. The ones that won't hurt my shoulders and will fit right. I went down to a B cup. I always lose in the "girls" first, so not fair.

I just got two new bras from "Just My Size" catalog....only 12.99 each. I too went down from 44DD to a 42D.....it's really awesome when you can see such a big change in your body...makes it all worth it.:) that's not my gripe but I would gripe about how much more the large sizes cost..yeah, I know....it takes more material ..but still, there is usually a huge discrepancy...

Waking up 5 or 10 minutes before my alarm & knowing that I should just get up because falling back to sleep will just make me feel worse and hearing the alarm will only annoy me....so what do I do...can't help but to fall back to sleep...urgh!

I'm late coming to this thread, but I want to add my gripe to the price of bras. I think I really need to buy new ones, but I hate the idea of spending that much money when I know they are going to last just a short period of time! Consequently, I keep putting it off and say things like, "When I hit minus 50, I'll buy new ones." I was measured at the end of June (needed a new one for my 10th wedding anniversary blessing of the marriage ceremony on July 3rd) and found out that I'd gone from a 44DD to a 44D. Did I buy new ones? Yes, but only the one I needed for my dress. I still wear the much-too-big ones all the time. Why do I do that????? I don't understand myself... emoticon

No gripe today, everyone is at work or school so I have the apartment to myself. I pretended to clean but mostly have played on the computer, walked to the post office and commissary, then walked home. Did fine with my HR until I hit the stairs and oops it went into the danger zone. I guess I shouldn't have ran up them.

Have a great day!

Today my grip is that I wish I could have said more to someone that needs to hear really what she is doing to her life. I normally would not want to do that but when you pull me in then watch out I can give it right back. Why don't you get it together and be a good mother.

Okay thanks everyone for giving me a place to put this.

I figured out how to fix the internet so it goes into the homes of hospital workers. My gripe? The wireless router in my house must have been fried during the time last week when my house had lots of electrical problems! I can connect to the Ethernet cable though. That is just a SMALL gripe though when I compare it with the days where I had no internet at all!

OK - today my gripe is political ads.

Enough already. We are smart enough to know that both sides manipulate the data and stats to serve their own purpose. That's the game. Funny thing is they win and WE lose.

It would be nice if a candidate (incumbent or not) would make a commercial telling me how voting for him/her would make my life better - instead of telling me what a jerk his/her opponent is. I need to know how you will help my state, the economy, the environment - not what your opponent did or didn't do 3 years ago. We know most of that crap is taken out of context anyway so stop wasting MY time and YOURS.

Why not make the 30 seconds that you have my attention count?

Have a GREAT day Team!!

Wow - that does sound aggravating. I hope something works out soon. can you contact the football player - maybe jolt him back to reality? My first marriage was to a pro athlete and if I learned anything - they are oozing pride and vanity. He might really take offense that his club is going down the drain?

Now - make sure you go directly to the fun challenge... It is perfect for you this morning.

My gripe today - and I think I will blog it - is IRRESPONSIBLE people.

The young man that owns my little gym in my little town - broke up with his fiance and left the state to get his head straight. He's decided he really wants to stay in the GA/FL area.

He played in the NFL so I guess he has some money somewhere. He had sort of hired someone to manage it - but that [ahem] man is an alcoholic who's wife just decided to leave him. He also has Crohn's and other ailments. He's also a pathological liar.

Anyway.. my friend and I LOVE this gym. It's fairly new, it's clean, we like the adult clientele (spelling?) that this gym has. FOR ME it's a 7 minute walk to get to.

But now my friend and I are trying to run it, get people signed up, cancel the ones that are mad about inconsistent personnel at the gym for questions, etc.

I don't want this gym to go under. The other little gym (on the other side of town) is filing bankruptcy. /sigh

How do you just leave your business in the hands of others just so you can party??????

I am soooooooo aggravated!! lol

The internet on our multiple building hospital compound went "down" about about four days ago and I am the one that everyone is hoping will "FIX IT". I have done all I know to do, even in contact with our normal IT man who is now in the States and will be for another month. He is one of our surgeons but with internet stuff as his hobby. I now have no internet in my home, nor does anyone. We do have internet at the hospital itself and also at the hub office where I am sitting right now. That means that I will not be able to Spark from my home. Not that "gripes" me because I am an avid SparkPerson but I often do it early in the morning.... like this morning I woke at 4am. I can't come to the office them. Of course I also am still trying to figure out what changed that we can not get our internet to go to all the compound.

I'm on Partial SparkBreak on my profile photo (wrote a blog about it) because of the internet problem but I'll still check in with this challenge. I'll not be able to participate in all threads for lack of internet time.

Thanks Carolyn for starting this.
I guess I should be called by my SparkName, Carolyn0107

Bye now.

I would have to agree, but I will tell you, it has gotten better since I lost weight. I used to have trouble finding bras that fit at regular stores. I had to go to the plus size shops and they always cost a fortune. I am now able to shop at department stores, so instead of spending $50, I can get away with around $30.

Stress happens... Why not have a place where we can vent - just a little bit. We all need it now and then.

I know we are supposed to focus on the positive, but let's be honest....

You are among friends - speak freely....

So - today I am venting about the cost of bras (sorry guys). Seriously - $50 for a bra? And they fall apart, lose shape in the wash, etc. For such an evolved society - can't we be reasonable about the "necessary" items lin life?????

Whew! I feel better.... :-)
