emoticon for that walking!

Walking really has changed my life since I started Sparkpeople a little over two years ago. It is something that I can do, even if at times I need to do it in small amounts of time, and it appeals to my frugalness as well.

We drove for 5 hours yesterday to get to the RV park and arrived to find my friend in good spirits after her hip replacement. I had a healthy food day and managed a walk with DH. There's a pool here I'll try after it warms up.

It's our last week of the challenge! Wow!

Have a great Sunday, my friends...I went out to walk a bit ago and rain drove me back in, so perhaps I can get more time later this afternoon. If not, I DID get my ten minutes anyway!

Well I did venture onto the scale and was pleased to see 2 pounds gone-I do hope that they have really gone and it wasn't just a blip. The first half of the holiday I did a lot of exercise and have been on the move since then so I'm hoping it will stay off.

Don't be afraid of the scale Tessa - you may be pleasantly suprised. I was afraid and found out that I only gained one pound.

Hope eveyone is having a great weekend. It's hotter than Hades here and no rain in sight. Funny how when went camping it rained 2x and was chilly!

Hi folks,
Just back from our trip in Europe-we've had a great time.
No internet so I haven't been tracking or communicating-sorry but the odd occasion I got to see emails had to be for work purposes.
I have exercised every day I've been away so that will add up to a few points!
I have yet to get on the scales-that's the scary bit...

You have done amazingly well on this challenge, Gail. Have you ever joined one of the Biggest Loser Challenge teams? That experience helped me develop my exercise habit.

Hi, Spunky Sparkers! Where has the summer challenge time gone? Wow! The last week is coming up...seems unbelievable. It has helped me to stay on track, though. I know I have shown some gains some weeks, but it is that effort over time that is the real test.

Have a fantastic Friday!

Good afternoon team,

Since it's our last week, I'm really trying for a loss. We went out for dinner last night but I stayed in calorie range by planning ahead. Today I have lots of chores to do - we're heading out on a short RV trip Sunday to visit a friend who just had a hip replacement. Not sure if the small park has internet access, but I have my phone.

Ann, I love onion rings! :)

Hi, Jacque! Thanks for visiting with us!

Chinese - weighin days - DH LOVES Chinese, but we now only go to one restaurant and that is 30 minutes away, so we don't go there often and it is a real treat when we do. And I don't worry about the sodium when I go anymore. I don't eat it all the time...so I enjoy it when I do. As for weighin days, I had to smile. Some of you will have known me long enough that you may remember that I always chose Sunday as my weigh-in day. That was the day that I joined Sparkpeople, so I was always weighing on a Sunday for one of our RV challenges. It was like it HAD to be that day. And when did most fun things happen with our RVing friends? On the weekend, and especially on Saturday before I had to weigh in! Then I joined one of the 5% challenges, and everyone had to weigh in on Saturday; that was odd to me...but I began to be less regimented, and that was a good thing...

Have a good day!

My name is Tammy and I live in SW Missouri.

We're going for Chinese today - at least you know when you gain the next morning it's just water from all the sodium in the food.

I realized that I need to watch what I eat on Sundays since I WI Monday mornings - whatever was I thinking when I picked that day? We always like pizza and wings while watching NASCAR or football. Even when I was on a strict diet plan it was always my one splurge day. It shouldn't really matter if I was moving forward the rest of the week and making progress. Can't seem to get myself to stay on track.

Marianne, we have thousands of restaurants here in the city but generally just go to the same one all the time. We're just not adventurous. When we were cleaning out my mothers house two years ago I think we had three restaurants to choose from in two towns. They all were very good too, especially if you like fried fish and deep fried onion rings. wink wink

Down a pound this week and earned 20 points.

When DH wanted to go out for Mexican food last night, I suggested Wed instead. Even if I can stay in range when we go out to eat, Mexican and last week's Chinese restaurants are tough! And to make matters worse, those are the only 2 restaurants in our small town aside from a couple of greasy burger joints.

Connie, it happens...don't stress about it, please. We are all in this together...

I have a crockpot in our RV as well, but have used it only once or twice all of this time...which would be about ten years.

Hi Team, this week has been a travel week, so I'm not having high hopes for a loss this week........I'm writing this today because I have tried so hard and can-t seem to get the damm scale to go down, I'm discouraged and depressed with this, it's probably all the water weight draging me down. Woo knows by weigh in tomorow things can change. I'm pushing the water and it has helped some, but I have health issues that cause me to retain water so this week is a double wammy. I just wanted to put out advance warning for my team, so sorry but I can't help what is happening right now. Hugs Connie emoticon

Hi team - I'm back from our trip to the Alleghany Mountains. It was a beautiful area. I couldn't believe I live 2 hours away and had never been to the Kinzua Dam area before. We asked about seasonal rates but they had no openings. Darn! It they had, we would have left the trailer there! It was a KOA so rates were a little high; but there was nothing else in the area. I did save a little by getting the KOA membership so we are going to a different KOA in September to take advantage of the card.

I was afraid to weigh myself but only gained 1 lb so I consider that a victory. I refused to cook this trip since I do all the shopping and cooking at home and I wanted a real vacation. My DH did make breakfast 2x with fried potatoes, onions, peppers and eggs scrambled in; but his idea of cooking was holding hot dogs or sausages on a fork over the fire LOL! He didn't even feel like doing up the charcoal grill, so I brought back home the steaks and ribs I took! Next time we go, it will be cooler temperature wise so I'll do things in the crockpot.

Nice to see everyone doing so well!

Hello team,

Walked a bit and taught my class - planning heavy duty cardio tomorrow. A little cooler here, only 85 instead of 100s.

WTG Spunky Sparkers! I came back to edit this post after seeing our great accomplishments for the week. Let's keep going!

emoticon Ann,

I made my husband hide his treats but he isn't supposed to tell me where they are! Since the garage is detached from the house, he can use the fridge there or the RV and I'm too lazy to go looking. As long as the ice cream isn't in the house....

Wow, my DH always suggests DQ the night before my weigh in. Now I found out he bought a bag of mini choc. chips because GS likes choc. chip pancakes and of course he didn't leave them at their house. Then he tells me he'll put them in the freezer so I won't be tempted. I informed him frozen choc. chips are wonderful.

Tammy, sorry to hear about your foot. That really makes walking tough! I'm teaching a class for teachers getting their MA degrees and it starts Saturday. It meets once a month on Saturdays for 6 hours during the semester, and then the rest of the class is online. I've been desperately trying to get my online site together - the university is having technical difficulties. This first class will be ok but I guess I need to have handouts of everything in case the website is not functional -- ugh!!

Then I agreed to coach two new teachers for the school district this year, and meet with each next week. It will be fun, but as you know, the beginning of the school year is intense, especially for rookie teachers.

Marianne, when does your class begin? My classes begin Monday, and I have procrastinated but done a bit this week. I have some more things I may do this evening or might save until Saturday evening during the Chiefs/Rams game, which DH will definitely be watching...

I took a shorter walk this morning; this is the second day of my foot being a problem again. I go for a very long time and have no problem and then forget that I need to be careful of it - stretching it, etc - and then it flares...so that is the reason for the shorter walk.

Good morning team,

Went for a walk - 4 miles with a friend - and now I'm procrastinating before getting back to prepping for the class I'm teaching. It is another hot day so I'll be in the pool later.

Have a great day, all.

Marianne, I have had that exact same thing happen - DH wanting Chinese the evening before a weigh-in. Sometimes I would be okay, and sometimes not. Hope yours is okay...but I am still of the opinion that it is our choices OVER TIME...not a one time weigh-in...

Have a good day, my friends.

Good evening all,

Weigh in tomorrow and naturally DH wanted to go out for Chinese food tonight! I was careful, but we'll see. I walked and swam laps today - another really hot one.

Hi team,

Another 4 mile walk this morning before it got too hot, and swam laps in the pool. I'm procrastinating and putting off the lesson planning I need to do -- tomorrow!

Hope everyone is enjoying the week-end.

Went for a brisk 4 mile walk with 2 friends this morning - we walked early because of the heat. It feels good to be home and into a routine again.

Gabby, what kind of dog? Our two are getting older and I keep thinking about a puppy...

Tessa, you must have been on a ferry if you are with your RV in Switzerland. How long a ride was it? I'll never forget the lonnnnnnnng ferry ride we took from Nova Scotia (I think it was) to Newfoundland. It was an over nighter and we tried to sleep in a room filled with reclining chairs. Not easy with all the snorers. Have a wonderful time.

@Marianne - that vacation weight will be off fast. Could just be water retention from the plane flight.

I probably won't be on tomorrow - we're picking up a new puppy for my mother and the breeder is about an hour and a half away. I'm hoping for a nice day but rain is in the forecast.

So sorry team, but I gained another pound while on vacation. I did earn all 21 points however. We got home at 2:00 today and I stepped on the scale; I usually weigh myself in the AM so the gain might not be that bad, but it is what it is....sigh.

Now I have a week to lose as much of the 3 pounds total I gained in Hawaii as possible. This week-end I'll blog about the trip and post a couple of pictures. We had a great time with my son's family, and I especially enjoyed the last 3 days at Waikiki with my 16 year old granddaughter. Now back to "real" life, paying the bills and preparing for my part time teaching job which starts next week.

It is cooler here today and I took advantage of it to walk a bit longer...something about being outside to do it really helps my frame of mind.

Let's have a good week...

It's finally cooled off here but due to be really hot again this weekend. I keep losing and gaining the same 4 lbs. On friday I have lost 4 and gain it back on weekends; so my Monday WI is always no change. Well I need to "change" that. I am going to splurge this Saturday for my birthday but then again maybe not.

Hope everyone does well this week!

Packing up the motorhome to leave soon
my weight is still the same as Thursday (I'm surprised it's not higher!) and I'll weigh in again in 3 weeks.
Hoping to see lots of losses when I get back (though I will try to check in once or twice on our trip)
Keep moving team

We lost power for about 5 hours yesterday - guess there were too many air conditioners going full blast! Good thing my Kindle battery was charged and I have a light in the cover!

Good Evening All

Gabby, you had 90 degrees at 11 a.m. and our sun didn't come out until just about 11.00. The cooler weather we had in July in continuing. It will heat up any time in the next 6 weeks.
Then I will be complaining.

Great work, Gail! I'm doing lots of exercise, but my food on vacation has not been stellar. Hope to improve this next week.

Good Evening all. Looks like we've had a few losers this week. Congrats to them all. I know it has been a tough week for everyone. It will be interesting tomorrow if I am down at all. Once I weighed this week I had stayed the same.

Not great on the eating today but I have been for a longer jog.
Work tomorrow then a party in the evening, then Sunday we're off on holiday-trying to do some sorting out for that whilst planning my class for tomorrow!

Ugh! I'm not doing so well this week so I am not looking forward to Monday's WI. I'll try to be carefull all weekend so the damage won't be too bad.

Have a great weekend everyone!
