emoticon It's Friday.... Doing the Friday dance! emoticon

I am excited about the weekend but it is going to be a busy one.

Shopping tonight for some new clothes and groceries. Tomorrow we will be boating with my parents on the St. Croix river. Sunday we have a family gathering to see my brother-in-law. He is home from Iraq for 15 days. Then on Monday we have another family picnic at Lake Elmo with my hubby's family. In between all the parties and fun I will be fitting in some running, walking, and biking!

emoticon emoticon emoticon

emoticon Whew.... it will be an exhausting weekend!

Next week though I have off from work so I should have a little time to relax!

I hope everyone enjoys the beautiful weather scheduled for this weekend. Get out and enjoy it while we can.

Have a fun and safe Labor day weekend!!!

On Day 3 of my walking streak. I hope I am able to continue it this weekend while on vacation at my friend's home. It usually gets pretty chaotic with several families there and lots of kids. I may have to lead all the kids on a nature walk or something.


Remodel2009 - Good luck with your friend's niece. I hope all goes well and that you are sparked to be productive and make healthy eating choices.

Cinderella-Girl - How exciting to meet with a personal trainer. How often do you meet with your trainer?

Pattk1220 - Glad to hear your cat is getting better. I can't imagine it would be much fun giving (forcing) the medicine in his mouth.

Leegwyn - Hoping your meds continue to bring healing to your foot.

My day got off to a rolicking start. I had to chase my cat down to give him a dose of medicine. Poor guy! He just hates taking it, but he's getting well. He always comes back to sit and purr for a while after he gets over the indignity of having pink stuff squirted into his throat.

Good Morning Sparkers,

How is everyone today? I am good! I am excited for my personal training this afternoon! It is helping me to reshape my body. emoticon

Max - your taste test sounds fun! I have done them before. I did one with yogurt and after it was done I couldn't eat yogurt for a while!

I hope everyone has a terrific Thursday!

Morning! Yesterday was the start of my new adventure. I have a roomer in my home for the next seven months. A friend's niece is a student and needed safe and cheap housing in the city, so I offered a room and bathroom in my home. I have not lived with someone full time for over 15 years. No more running through the house in my underwear and I will have to watch my talking to myself aloud - though I can claim I am talking to the cats.
This will be interesting all around.

I know I will eat better choices when someone else is around, be more productive in my studio, and I plan to go to the gym more often in the morning. We shall see!

I participated in a taste test tonight for low-calorie snack cakes. I think they were supposed to be for Weight Watchers brand but the testing company can't actually tell you that. The first one I tried was awesome - 90 calories of chocolate goodness. Chocolate cake with a chocolate filling. Yum! The next one was like a ho-ho. Chocolate cake with a white creme frosting. Not so good. The last two samples were carrot cake. I love carrot cake and couldn't figure out how someone could screw it up so badly with really gross tasting creme filling that was supposed to resemble cream cheese filling. They missed the mark on that and I made sure to tell them. :-)

Enough about me - how is everyone else?!?

Molly, sorry to hear about the family chaos.

Elaine, glad you remembered the open house. It is a crazy week before Labor Day so I can understand how that might happen.

Members with families really have their hands full! I am impressed that you manage to keep it together and still take care of yourself - and yet, you must in order to handle the stress and general craziness.
Hats off to you moms and dads, and those in the "sandwich" years who dealing with parents and older childred at the same time.
Just remember to exhale and keep your sense of humor!

Oh Molly.... I hear you on the family dramatics!!! I have the same thing going on with mine.... not fun at all. Why can't we all just get along?!?!?!?


Last night was stressful. I forgot about my kids open house until a few hours before. (Thank goodness I remembered!) I know.... what kind of mother am I to forget such an important date. That is where my headache started and it continued on until we were finally leaving the school. It is hard going to see three teachers with three very anxious kids. But we survived..... now the countdown starts for September 8 (for my boys) and September 10 (for my daughter).

Have an awesome day!!!

Good Morning All,
I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday!!!! My plan to get extra activity in yesterday, did not work. It was my Grandma's 90th B-day and we had a small party at her house. It was crazy, my family could not get along, so I spent 3.5 hrs being referee and peace maker. Fun. Luckily all the arguing happened away from my Grandma, so she enjoyed her b-day! :) Family can be soooooo dramatic. The good thing is I did NOT overeat because of it! Sorry, just had to vent. Have a Wonderful Wednesday!!!

Nordic Walking tonight. Need to walk 60 miles in 3 days in November so walking will be my life for a while. All for excellent reasons - to help fight breast cancer AND I might just loose some weight in the meantime!

Virtual Run / Walking Across America looks fun. I'm in!

Good Morning All,
First day of school! I can't believe the summer went so fast! I am taking a break at school to check in. While I am not happy to see summer slipping away, I am excited for a new month. A new month can mean a new start or continued progress. It is up to us. I challenge all of us to get active today and enjoy our first day of September! Have a great day!!!

Can I just say that I can't believe it is already September?!?!?! Summer is coming to an end and I didn't feel like we had a long enough one. Here is to hoping for some warm sunny days in the fall! emoticon

My son had his first football scrimmage last night. He was so cute and it was so neat to watch. He was the running back so he was able to run the ball a few times. I did get a little nervous when he got tackled... emoticon

When he was playing defense he had a very nice tackle taking down the quarter-back. He got up and was smiling ear to ear and did a grrrrr..... sound! It was so cute! I can't wait for more games!

Happy Tuesday!!!

Had a fun weekend down in Owatonna with family. Hit the Medford outlet mall on the way home. I was able to get a few outfits for my daughter at the Children's Place and Gymboree outlets really cheap before my husband and daughter pulled me out of there because they were bored. Got my Vitamin D out in the sun today while playing tennis with my daughter and nephews. I think we were running after the ball more then playing tennis (what can you expect with a 6, 7 and 11 year old) but it was a lot of fun.

Livinglifeinmn - Great job with all that walking! That is so great that you are doing some more Nordic walking.

Pattk1220 - Wonderful job getting organized and things done this last weekend!

Leegwyn - Dancing with friends sounds like a fun time!

I had a great weekend! I reorganized my kitchen cupboards, took a car load of gently used goodies to Goodwill, mowed the lawn, read a book, got my hair cut, made a couple of great meals... Whew! It was tons of fun!

I loved the rain this morning and now the sun is out. Hurray! I'm leaving for Owatonna this afternoon for a little trip to the Medford outlet mall and then my family and my sister's family is staying at the Holiday Inn that has a small water park. The kids should have a blast! I hope everyone has a great weekend. It should be a good one to get outside.

Linda asked that I share the September schedule. Nordic Walking Tuesdays continue into September.
With Linda Lemke

Come and take a walk with us.....a nordic walk!
We meet every week at a different location, usually with a group of 20 to 30 people (sometimes more). We bring poles for those who don't have them. This is not a class, but if you have never nordic walked, we will show you the basics.

Please note: Due to earlier sunsets, we are now meeting at 6:00 pm.

If you have any questions, email Linda at lindal@hoigaards.com.

September 1 at 6:00 pm at Cedar Lake
Meet at the main beach on the south end of the lake. Park on nearby side streets.

September 8 at 6:00 pm at Hoigaard's
Meet at 5425 Excelsior Blvd. in St. Louis Park.

September 15 at 6:00 pm at Lake of the Isles
Meet on Dean Parkway on the west side of the Calhoun Beach Club. There is plenty of free parking up the parkway towards the lake.


September 22 at 6:00 pm at Hyland Park Preserve
On west end of Bloomington. Meet at the Visitor Center by the playground.

September 29 at 6:00 pm at Fort Snelling
We had so much fun we have to do it again!
Park in the big lot at the Historic Fort. (NOT the State Park entrance--these two things are separate). Take 494 east, to 5 east, to 55 west (a tiny distance) and the first exit is Bloomington road. Take that and follow the signs to the historic fort (a very short distance) and you are right at the Parking Lot. (hint: Mapquest does not know the right way to get there from 494) You can also come off Crosstown and it is very well marked.


Do something for yourself today!

It was nice to meet everyone last night. The Nordic Walking class was interesting and fun. Until last night, I didn't know there was difference between trekking poles and Nordic Walking poles.

Good Day/Bad Day

My first day at the job went well. I think I'm really going to like working with my supervisor. She's just been there 2 weeks herself, so we'll be learning things together. That's the good part.

The bad part is that I had decided to go to the church meeting because that seemed important to DH. So I'd resigned myself to the fact that I'd miss the Spark Rally. By the time DH got home and we ate supper, I asked about the church meeting and he looked at the clock, having forgotten about it. It was too late for us to go, so we didn't do EITHER! I WILL make a Spark Rally sometime soon.

Gwyn, there are announcements via Sparkmail as well as a special section near the top of the team's home page with Spark Rally info.

I've done it before, I can do it again!

Hi Team! I just got an article about Nordic walking in my e-mail today and thought some of you would be interested. Here's a link blog.gaiam.com/blog/how-walking-pole

I won't be at the rally tonight. I got sick at work. Hope you all have fun!

Have fun at tonight's Spark Rally!!! I wish I could make it tonight but the kids have me and my hubby busy. I am bummed because I really wanted to try Nordic walking.

Tonight is the last of the swimming lessons.... we shall see if they all passed. Then my son has his football practice. I am really enjoying watching him play! He loves it!

Have a great time though tonight! It should be a beautiful night for some nordic walking!!!! emoticon

Tomorrow's my big day...first day at my new job. It's been so long since I've actually logged in hours in an office, I hope I can still do it! (I've spent the last 8 years teaching very part time at a couple of local colleges. Teaching is very different from program development and evaluation, but I'm looking forward to the new challenge.) Farmgirl hasn't shown up as frequently as I'd have liked (see my last blog for an explanation). My house is still cluttered and my painting project didn't get any farther than getting the paint mixed to the right shades and buying it. As hard as losing the weight was, progress towards my household goal is exponentially more difficult for me. I still haven't figured out why or what to do about it.

My lawn is so happy to have more rain! My nephew was bummed though because we had plans to play tennis outdoors in the morning. Oh well, another time. I'm looking forward to tomorrow night's SparkRally. I've never done Nordic walking before and figure it is about time to try something new.

HASITTE, hope your yogurt turned out well. If I'm remembering correctly I believe NVR2HEALTHY makes her own yogurt, so you could stop by her page and ask her for some tips.

I am glad it's raining, but I wish it would warm up so my tomatoes would start turning red! Also, I decided to try making yogurt today, wish me luck!
