Melissa - awesome job with the weight loss so far! Keep the mean streak going!!

Yeah, Ginger - June is basically sucking for me so far... Eating a little more than I want to and exercising only half of the 14 days so far. Not gaining weight, but in a holding pattern!

So, any challenges would be appreciated!!

I had a shocker when I weighed myself this morning. I actually asked my husband if he played with the scale! I didn't think I was doing well watching my weight plus I haven't been exercising because I had a cold now a wonderful cough. I've lost 10 pounds since joining SP but I lost 5 pounds before I joined so I am quite happy. Hopefully this will inspire me to keep up the good work.

emoticon Hi Gwen all the tiller talk made me remember to get a pix of it for my page.I tilled all my flower beds here, now have to take it over to our old place and give it a work out thats where all my old perrenial beds are. I started them about 27 years ago, boy was I young then emoticon oh well.
Your flowers sound so much more impressive then my Iris and tulips and daylilys!I love roses but the old fashioned bush type are the only ones that live for me we can grow them here but the climate is only good for certain ones.The tea roses I love are to delicate and require a lot of work and I am too lazy for them emoticon I love wave petunias they are fantastic and the colors are just so striking.I have these very small flowers that are fairly new that spread like the wave's and look like them only min. and they are called Calibrachoa untill last spring I dont remember ever seeing them and then they were in these hanging baskets and they were so awesome hanging over and all bright color so I bought 2 and put one in each large pot and each one covered and hung over the pot it was in just awesome!They look like a small petunia and they are heat tolerant too.I love Hibiscus too and have had the indoor ones for years untill last year when I lost a bunch of plants to the early freeze!Sound like your gardens are beautiful!And you have to get some pictures of those pots they sound fantastic! emoticon Have a great day!

Ginger... I don't do too many perennials but love the Hardy Hibiscus and the Hibiscus Rose of Sharons because the bushes flower all summer. Veronica, Hot Pink Sage... am going crazy with Knock-out Roses, Climbing Roses, and LOVE Crepe Myrtles... I like bushes that flower til frost. Only one Azalea made it thru our ice storm this year... was sad to see my bright hot pink & red ones not come back and they were pretty big. Will be filling in their spots with Knock Outs when I find the time to work on those beds!

This sounds so ordinary but I go crazy with wave Petunias as annuals... you just can't beat the color and size they get....and I love yellow lantana. All my baskets are blooming now and in my big pots I put a spike in the center, surrounded by huge geraniums, with trailing verbena, double wave petunias, vinca vine, and million bells.

I've always wanted one of those mini tillers... it'd make my life so much easier but I do have one of those claw dirt breakers/weeders.... it is manually operated and gives me a great workout twisting that thing all over but one with a motor behind it would sure be nice!

Hahaha... Ginger! I probably won't get in to one this year either and never wear one in public! We have an inground pool but it's surrounded by chainlink... not much privacy there! I grow as many climbing plants around it as I can ... the coolest are the gourds. They are monsters from h*ll! Just climb everywhere.... even up in the trees but at the end of summer I have these wonderful fruits hanging everywhere. FUN!!!!!

Buggie Bugs have turned into itchy scabs... at least the little buggers are DEAD! I am healing but they look awful. Thanks for asking!

I got way behind on that bootcamp thing and am trying to catch-up today. It's so hard to see that little video without my reader glasses on and it's tough to bend over with them on cuz they fall off my face. ahhhhhh well... am working on it. How are the rest of you doing? I called coach 'Jen'... it's Nicole. My bad.

Ginger.... have you or any of the rest of you thought about joining the bikini bootcamp? Over 11,000 ppl have signed up so far and it starts today and goes until the end of May.

Everyday, Coach Jen will post what you have to do today for the challenge using Utube to send videos. It's gonna be cool and it might help you to get off those 5 pounds this month!

Unless you want your email box to fill up to ridiculous proportions, do not click to add emails from the site. It has gotten way out of line. I'm getting 100+ emails from them daily! Coach will sparkmail the instructions or check on the Sticky Threads.

Thanks for the scratch, Ginger! LOL

Chiggars are invisible... anyway, I have never seen one. You do not know you have them on you for a day or so, after they have burrowed down inside one of your pores where they use the tunnel dug as their breathing hole. As they eat at your meat, little bubbles of ooze will pop up out of the pore... clear stuff that gets hard once it hits air. I know.... this is so gross!

They will continue to burrow and itch like crazy and no topical ointment alive will help the itch or make them go away. The only way you can kill them is to plug up the breathing hole but expensive chiggar stuff from the pharmacy doesn't work any better than a cheap bottle of fingernail polish... any color will do!

Put a dollup on each hole that is surrounded by red skin due to all the itching and getting them infected. The polish cracks and wears off so you have to do it each time you start to itch. Even by smothering them to death, it takes a long time for them to die.... like 2-3 weeks! Nasty little buggers! Sorry this was so long!

I used to be a big horse racing fan, but I was watching a big racing event on TV and they had a couple of bad accidents and had to put a couple of horses down, so now I can't watch anymore. It just breaks my heart too much. I heard about todays race and it makes me sad. emoticon

I hate bugs but esPECIALLY Chiggars! How can something you can't even see burrow down into your skin and eat at you from the inside out? Never heard of these bugs until we moved here. I have fingernail polish (clear stuff for me... last year I put hot PINK on hubby after he got them playing golf!) on all of them but their blow holes still seep out. UGH!!!! Itch Itch Itch! Somebody SCRATCH me! LOL

Yes... a few ppl here have contracted Lymme disease here b4.... Mine is still real red but if I get a fever.... off to the doc's I'm gonna go!

That'd be fun! A virtual party... never done that b4... you'll have to tell us how it's done!

Speaking of BUGS....... I broke out in CHIGGER bites all over my back and chest area yesterday and these stupid little buggers just drive me crazy!!!!!! AND! I had to have hubby pull the biggest tick I've ever seen around here off of my back and I don't think he got the head out because it looks like a huge ZIT and is red about the size of a 50 cent piece and itches too! Ahhhhhhh!!!!!!! I forgot my deet the other day but never think about it unless skeetas are biting. DARN!!!!!!! I am so mad at myself. It takes weeks to kill the little buggers and a spot will itch for months!

I like this idea, I've lost 14 pounds so far, maybe this will motivate me to push a little harder to get to that 15 pounds!
How great to see your first hummingbird of the season. I'm still waiting, I know they are in this part of the country, but have not seen one yet.

Cool idea, thanks for including us lurkers in this. I joined a few teams when I started Spark and haven't been real good about posting in all, but I love my birdies in my hard and just saw my first hummer of the season today so will start getting more involved in the team!

What a great idea, I really like my usual avatar pic, but it will be a great motivator to aim for a new pounds lost icon each month!

I have been trying to get along here, going on seven weeks, with dizziness and vision blurring!! Tests, etc.
MRI etc etc. We still are not sure but have an idea of what is the problem. But not narrowed down enough yet.
that is all I am gonna say about it other than that it is hard to exercise! and I have put weight back on but I am getting back on track as best I can. I have joined a CSA Farm, Ginger!!!!!! I am going to go out and help plant again tonight. I decided to try this out this season, and just do my landscaping and herbs here at home. I am not great with vegetables, although part is due to the plot being overshadowed by trees that had not matured when I set up myplot.

HOW ARE YOU!! Well, I hope!
Hugs

Hi Kat! Go to edit your sparkpage and on the right hand side is your profile pic.... click on it. It will ask if you want to upload a new pic, choose from your gallery or add one from SP. Click on the SP.... and choose the icon you want and it will now be your profile pic. To put it into your gallery, just click on your profile icon again and click on the pic you want from your gallery and the icon will go into the gallery.

How does one get a POUNDS LOST Icon? Where is it loaded? or do we need to find one? I have seen something like this and this is a great idea!
Have a great day!

Hello Ladies and any Gentlemen in the group! I thought this might be fun to do: If you have a pounds LOST Icon.... use it as your avitar during the last week of this month! I think it is so cool to scroll down everyone's posts and see all the pounds lost! So Strut your stuff and let's see all those Pounds Lost Icons icons!

Newbies.... if you don't have one yet.... make it a challenge to yourself to get one by months end and we can do it again in May!

Spread this around to all of your other Teams and lets make the last week of every month show off week!
