SparkPeople Boise/Treasure Valley Team Messageboard How is it going today? <em>30</em> Tue, 20 Jun 2017 19:16:26 EST New to Boise - Fitness partners & friends... Greetings all, <BR> <BR> I just discovered the Boise/Treasure Valley Team - Sweet! I had no idea you guys were out there! <BR> <BR> I'm in the SE part of town currently and hoping for some like-minded people to walk, hike and/or bike with. I'm an ex-runner, but my knees have finally taken me out of that sport, so I'm having to re-adjust my perspective a bit. Also, after hitting 40, the weight is creeping up on me, and is becoming harder to "outrun", so the motivation of a team would be ... Mon, 31 Oct 2016 09:27:19 EST Paper Cip Challenge Anyone want to join me for a challenge? Here's how it works... <BR> <BR> We're each going to create a paperclip chain! You decide what you want to earn a paperclip for. It can be a paperclip for each pound you lose, or a paperclip for each day you drink all your water or get all your steps, etc. For me, it will be a paperclip for each 1,000 steps I do. <BR> <BR> So if you'd like to join me in the paperclip challenge, post here to tell us what you will be earning a paperclip for, and then ...

I am super excited to have found a group that has local members. I am curious how the team goals work and what everyone here in the valley has found to be motivational for their fitness goals/success as well as family friendly areas in the valley to run/walk/hike/workout.

So, I will be getting weight loss surgery in June and was wondering if there is anyone else in this group that is going to have our have had surgery.

Sounds ideal, right? Not so great because when I finish tapering off the drugs, the appetite will come back with a vengeance. I am preparing for that by: making sure I don't drop below 1,000 calories a day, stocking up on high fiber low calorie foods (I premade some veg soups and froze in 1 serving sizes), and making a solid habit of recording all foods on spark people. I am up and doing some walking, as I... Wed, 3 Dec 2014 13:27:19 EST Dancing is my favorite I took a community ed bellydance class years ago, I had no idea it would "hook" me so thoroughly. I enjoy dancing sooooooo much. I hadn't intended on performing, but when I joined the Beli Danse Academie my teacher subtly encouraged me until I had enough courage to join the troupe dances. I started out hiding in the back, following the more experienced dancers. Fast forward a few years-----I am doing solos, teaching beginners, and competing. It is still a blast! I have met many of the gr... Mon, 8 Sep 2014 09:48:27 EST Do you own or like??? Here's another game that is a fun way to get to know each other. Answer a question and then ask one. For example: <BR> <BR> Do you own a bike? <BR> <BR> Answer: <BR> <BR> Yes, I own a bike. <BR> Do you own a skateboard? <BR> <BR> The next person answers the question and then asks one of the next person.

I think it is important that we give back when we can. So I will be on the lookout for worthy causes we can participate in... also members please post any you think we need to consider doing. Sun, 30 Mar 2014 18:59:14 EST I Need The Team's Support... I think we could all benefit from having a place to post when we need support from the team. So here is a place just for us. This can be about anything by the way. My vision for this team is that we have a *safe* place to vent about any and all of our life's problems. Sometimes other people can help when we can't help ourselves. <BR> <BR> Christine Sat, 29 Mar 2014 20:19:59 EST Spark Designs - Please add any new ones you find!

I need to focus on my homework, health, and family needs. When we started this, my husband was going with me so I didn't mind that nobody else had shown up.

Mon, 14 Mar 2011 23:49:09 EST New to Sparking This is such a groovy site. I've been working it for about a week now and loving it. I found it when I googled "calorie counter"..woohoo. I live in Caldwell and work out at the IAC, I love their free class. The people there are great and No, I don't work there. I think the Robie Creek run would be cool, but I don't know the toll it would take on my knees. Maybe I'll find out. Just wanted to say Hi and I plan to Keep Coming Back.

Sun, 18 Mar 2007 03:06:30 EST Introduce Yourself <em>174</em> Hi everyone. I am Jenna and started this group because I could only find 2 teams that even had anything to do with Idaho! One was for northern Idaho people and the other one was for overall. I know there are enough of us in Boise and the nearby cities that could use support from each other and spread the word about this great site. <BR> <BR> So I hope to make this a place to come for support and tips. I also want to have weekly/monthly/daily challenges as soon as we start... Sat, 17 Mar 2007 00:01:40 EST
