Hey Team ... can you believe how time flies ??

What a beautiful September day. Working on meal prep and trying to find other ways to help with accountability / motivation ...and hoping to find a gym buddy !!!

Anyone want a nasty summer cold ?? Lol

Well one thing when up all night coughing ... do NOT add up the $$ for the wedding I helped as much as I could for my daughter's wedding her fatherr refused to help and the other family unable to .... well guess I need to stop spending lol

Hello my friends. I'm still alive!!! We have been flat out. We are vacation this week and although we didn't go away we have been doing day trips and not getting home till late. I can't believe summer is whinding down. I just got my first email from the new school. If that's not the kicker I don't know what is.
Rebecca starts back to school on Wednesday and her softball playoffs are the following weekend. After that.... Back to the grind. With a major sift in focus I'm hoping to make some lasting changes going forward. I have not stepped on the scale since returning home, nor do I want to. I can feel it in my clothes now so it's not going to be good. Anyway I'm not thinking about it now. I'm going to enjoy the rest of my vacation, lay off the eat more bars and ice caps and come back to a fresh start.

Hope you are all enjoying your summer and are ready to take on the fall. Xo miss you all

Great to read about your adventures and travelogues... It is these days that get us through that other kind of weather that none of us really want to consider. Have you seen the skies with that haze? Unreal, and eerie.

Hey all,

Been gone a while and have the weight gain to show for it! Between illnesses and parents visiting and spoiling us with baked goods and junk food Ive gotten way off track. Decent day today though and have a streamer plan in place for the coming weeks!

I heard theres some hot weather in store for NS, stay cool!

It's Friday!

We are heading out to my parents home this weekend seems we never made it out all summer long. We missed all the family home as we were in St John's with Hubby's brother. I might even get a swim in!

Hope everyone has a sparker weekend!!

Heya Peeps!

I am so sorry for not getting on here daily, but work is so interesting and now we're down to a time crunch... yeah, I know, excuses. :-P

Where the heck did summer go?! It's moving too fast!!

Wifey received her final mark on her Vet Assistant course, and she finished with 95.67%. She starts the Veterinary Technician (Vet Tech) course in a couple weeks, and although she doesn't want to rush summer away, she's VERY excited to return to school. It's so refreshing to see her excited for something work-related.

During the Labour Day weekend, Wifey & I are heading to PEI again, for our annual Acadian Festival pilgrimage. We will be going to the Saturday night dance, and Reveil, probably my favourite Acadian band after 1755, are playing that night. I've been scouring YouTube for their songs, and other Acadian songs, and I'm dying of laughter at work.

Back to work I go.... with Acadian tunes playing in the background!

Well August is moving along quickly. It has been a busy summer. I have gotten to my favourite beaches and had some nice times in the surf. I also have been busy with yard work and housecleaning.
Life is full of challenges and opportunities and I am meeting them head on.

Wishing all my Sparkies all the best each day in their own challenges and opportunities ...

Hugs

Hello ladies.

Sam I hear ya. Even though I didn't gain much while I was home I have gained back 9 pounds so my yo-yoing is in full swing. I'm going to cruise through the next few weeks until school starts again. It's just to hard to get at my regular routine while ball is still going on.
I still have one more week of vacation too so ya. I'm just going to watch the food intake. I did go to Aqua Zumba Tuesday night and it was awesome. I look forward to getting back into it regularly.

Anyway it's late. I hope you are all doing well. I guess you all are busy too. Xo

Good afternoon everyone!

I know it's been awhile since I've been here. It seems like forever!

My BIL went to St. John's to have a blockage in his groin removed. He had the surgery and 130 staples later has good circulation in his leg and foot. Unfortunately his leg is now infected and the drs are worried he may lose the leg. We ended up cancelling all our summer vacation plans and spending it all in the hospital with him. He has no wife or kids so he is alone. I can't imagine how he must feel sitting in a hospital 7 hours away from home with absolutely no family with him day in and day out. It's heartbreaking.

I can also safely say that I have gained 20 lbs this summer (too frightened to get on a scale) but the cloths tell the story and it's not good. I keep telling myself that I have to get back in the groove but I always indulge in the easy way out. It's no one's fault but my own, sometimes I wish I could kick my own butt! emoticon

I guess the best way to get back into it is to start with the basics and track. I really need to sit and do a meal plan for the month, it helps when I know what I'm having in advance. I find it easier to stick to it. Weekends are my downfall though especially at the cabin.

I hope everyone is well. I will do some catch up reading when I get a chance. I just wanted to touch base and let everyone know I'm still alive!

Good afternoon everyone.

A special hello to my peeps.

@SMUISE sorry we didn't get a chance to get together while I was home. I saw your post about being in St. John's. I hope your bil is doing better. Maybe next time.

@GINGYCAT40 the time is just ticking by. Won't be long now. I bet the girls are getting gitty with excitement. Hard to believe it's just around the corner.... And great job on getting in all that exercise too especially in this heat that we have been having.

@ANLYNN how are things up your way?? How is working going for you. I hope things have gotten better for you.

@GLENDA2017 I guess you're flat out at work too. It is that time of year. I see you are doing great with your maintenance. Great job girlfriend. I bet you are also enjoying those beautiful beaches with your pooch. I'm looking forward out family day rainbow haven.

@JLDACQ I'm so glad to hear that you gals are doing fine. I'm not sure what's going on in this world of ours but it is very unsettling. I'm glad you had a great vacation also.

So after 2 weeks of being away I gained a .5 of a pound but put on an inch around my waist. I wasn't completely surprised. I spent a lot of time swimming and walking but none on strength training so it stands to reason that I would gain in inches. It gives me a good perspective as well as I didn't over indulge in food. So it really comes down to exercise.... and more focus on strength training. I think I'll have to re- evaluate my workout routine... A little less cardio and a lot more strength training, and more focus on my core as all my weight sit on my belly and tush.. Lol

Hello to anyone who may be reading my post. Hope your spark is shining bright.

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednsday. Xo hugs to all.

Hi everyone,

Sorry I didn't get back here sooner. Last week was my vacation as well, and it was nice and relaxing, just what I needed.

I'm sure you've heard by now about the shooting in Fredericton. It's very sad. We were in Moncton when it happened. We're safe & sound.

This week is back to work, and back to French screenshots and audio clips. I also have appointments this week, so it's going to be a fun challenge. I just wish my teleportation device was working. ;-)

The Spark starts it all!

Hello everyone. Just popping in quickly to say hello and I'm back. Had a fantastic vacation and now looking forward to get back into my routine. I did pretty good while I was home. I had treats but also didn't overdue it. I did take a scale peek and I'm happy considering. My weight in for the BL challenge is not till Wednesday so I'll post then.
I joined the fall challenge in hopes of really pushing me the get fully back on board with drinking my water and tracking my food.

Hope you are all doing well. Xo miss you all.

Hi team... hope you are all enjoying your summer.

I am busy with my now 2 jobs and helping with the wedding preparations..gym/my mom etc. Weddin - not long now... just over 2 weeks. How time flies.

Glenda - sounds like your keeping busy and heading to the beaches - good for you.. does not look like I will be getting there any time soon. I have not even taken any vacation, work is just too busy. I do have a few days booked off for the wedding.

Sounds like everyone is keeping busy..
