I still don't know how much walking I'm doing, but I'm sure climbing a lot of stairs. Any time there is laminating to do I get to walk up 2 full flights of stairs. Each flight has 2 sections of 15 or 20 stairs ... so I'm going up and thenbdown 70 stairs each trip I take. One trip to turn on the laminater ... and then one trip to get the pieces laminated. That still doesn't count the 6 steps I have to go up and down each time I leave the office.

I know I'm getting some good exercise ... partly because I challenge myself to make it count!!!

Being home on Christmas break was great ... I was busy with holiday preparations most of the time I was home. My sister and her family came in for New Years so there was extra preparations for while they were here.

I actually didn't gain weight over the holidays this year. I think that's a first.

Hope everyone had a Joyous, peaceful Christmas ... Blessings for a wonderful prosperous, healthy, love filled 2010!

I didn't get to my baking until this evening ... but I have what I need for tomorrow, and it will be easy to bake the rest tomorrow night.

I sure am getting my share of exercise at work ... my office is about 6 steps below the rest of the classrooms so every time I have to leave to do something I have the steps to go up and down. That might not seem like much, but if you figure I probably go up and down them about 6 times every hour, that is a lot of steps in a 7 hour day! That dowsn't even begin to count the hallways I travel ... I don't even want to guess how many times I go through each hallway ... I know my first half hour I'm up and down the steps 4 times, and the hallways about 6 each! I suppose I should take my pedometer to gauge how far I'm walking!

I probably won't be able to get back to the gym until after the first of the year. I have other things to use my money for emoticon

I did get a 6 week teacher asst subbing job in the city that takes me through January 8 ... it will be nice to have a little extra for Christmas shopping. I get lots of exercise walking the halls ... so that sort of offsets my lack of gym.

Sunday is my day to start baking my biscotti ... I need 2 batches for Wednesday, and 2 more for mailing by Friday! Before Christmas I will have made about 5 or 6 batches for gifts! Send me your address and I'll be happy to bring you a small bar for Christmas.

I make two kinds; 1.almond, 2.pistachio/cranberry.
Both go wonderful with coffee in the morning and surprisingly aren't too bad for you. I'll have to check, but I think I have both recipes in my SP recipe box.

Yeah, I really need to up my veggie intake. I love pepper slices and carrots. Broccoli and Cauliflower, gotta keep them around the house more often. The kids love them too, so that's a great added motivation.

Good morning all ... hope it is a good week! I was just curious about what things you do to help stay on track over the holidays ...

My best help is to only eat I don't get to often and avoid anything that is the same old same old! Plus the biggest portion of my plate (about 3/4) is filled with veggies ... no dip ... the rest is allotted for special foods.

That's okay. I am here, and I'll be here. I'm in it to win it. Okay, maybe that doesn't apply, but I am now a sparker for the long haul. I'll be here. Hopefully everyone will come back. I know the holidays are crazy hectic. I've got a week of vacation coming up, I'll be scrubbing my house from top to bottom. :)

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving ... mine was delicious. I was careful to avoid foods that weren't necessary (like gravy and rolls) and kept my portions sensible.

I did have 2 homemade sugar cookies (my grandmother's recipe)for dessert ... and a little Baileys in my coffee ...

Crissy ... sorry we abandoned you on SP ... I'm still lurking around ... but have been busy with the holiday and work and projects. Christmas is right around the corner and I want the house to look wonderful.

I am really good about answering posts ... that keeps me checking in from time to time. You have been somewhat of a lifeline for me ... Thanks!

Decluttering is a great feeling ... my plan is to have 2 major/2 minor ongoing projects finished before Christmas ...

I also got some really good news yesterday ... I am officially a clerical/teacher assistant substitute for the Erie school District. I have to go in and sign one more paper this morning and then I can activate myself in their sub finder system ...

I'm really hoping this leads to something permanent!

Crissy ... that is great ... keep up the momentum.

I'm spending lots of time (and exercise) finishing up projects that have been ongoing for way too long. I guess you could say I'm de-cluttering my life. I will enjoy not having so many things hanging over my head ... and that should make it easier to organize my time and get to the gym when I want!!!

Awesome!!!
I got a Metro wide membership. I live closest to the Glenwood Y so I'll work out there mainly, but I want to have an exercise buddy, and her membership is for the Eastside Y, so I figured I'd just plan on working out everywhere, more convenient and less excuses not to go! I haven't gotten a chance to check the place out yet, but I plan on heading there tomorrow on my day off.

I have been very busy with work everyday, then going to Curves 5 days a week for 45 minutes or 3 times around the circuit. And now my DH is starting water exercises at the YMCA and I have to take him (he needs alot of motavation). Taking care of 2 adult dogs and 2 puppies. But I do get on here at least once a day or I try to.

When life hands you trouble slow down and stop to smell the roses. Life is so short, live like today is the last day of your life. Enjoy.

Sorry Chrissy ... I got a 4 week job, and a side job sewing a Halloween costume. Besides ... I've been good about going to work out during the week. Things should settle down in about a week ... I'm really trying to get back to SP regularly, but I haven't even had much time for computer the last couple of weeks!

Hope all is well ... just keep plugging away!

Curves sounds like a great program. I'd like to try it, but I'm stuck with the everloving gym membership that I can't use and can't pay to cancel. Plus, I'd never be able to make the time frames work. I'd still love to check it out sometime. Maybe when my contract expires with the other place next summer.

Oh, not complaining. I am grateful everyday for the job that I have. It may not be my dream job, but it pays well and I am guaranteed 40 hours a week. I just get frustrated because in all the time I've worked there, the past month and a half is the first time they've offered overtime. They just give you very little notice and put ridiculous restraints on how and when the overtime can be taken. For example, they have offered us up to 45 hours, with a special incentive of gift certificates to the cafeteria if we work 5 hours more than our schedule. But, they give us, effectively 4 days to do it. And it can only be after a certain hour of the day. Again, I'm so grateful for it, but they give us attitude if we can't schedule it in advance. It is incredibly difficult for me to get childcare so I can go in for the extra hours so it is very "fly by the seat of my pants". Basically, that day, if I can find someone to take my kids, and I can get to work early or stay after my shift I have to ask supervisors at that point, and they ask my why I didn't email HR with my request and I have to explain it to them for the 4 time that week. LOL. So, it's not that I don't want to drop everything for the work, it just so happens that what I have to "drop" for work is my children, very precious cargo, and it's not easy.
By the way, where I work is not really clerical, it's "customer marketing" (which is trying to sell people something after we fix their problem, lol), but it pays $10.20 an hour and we are hiring. I have the health insurance which isn't comprehensive major, it's a "limited benefit plan", and I haven't decided if it's worth paying for yet. Message me if you want more info, I have a couple of other ideas for you as well, in case you haven't checked them out. Let me know exactly what you are looking for and I'll keep my eyes and ears peeled for you.

Oh Crissy ... please don't complain! I would love to drop my entire life to go to work! I got laid off in November of 2008 ... I've managed to find a few part time temporary jobs, but would really love to find a part/full permanent clerical job somewhere. I've been collecting full and partial unemployment for almost a year! I only have about 5 more years to work before medicare kicks in ... and at my age job choices are limited. As much as I love having the free time, I would like to have some health insurance for me and hubby.

Yay, They are surprising us with requests for overtime at work again. Last minute of course. Because, ya know, everyone can just drop their entire lives to go to work at the drop of a hat. LOL. Gonna be a long week.

This evening was interesting. I went to pull some chicken breast out of the freezer to thaw yesterday morning and lo, and behold, ALL of the meat in the freezer was thawed. Apparently, something tripped the circuit and shut off my freezer. So, I got to clean out the chest freezer today. I can honestly say, I'm not a fan of spoiled meat or blood. It wouldn't have been bad if I had had the benefit of taking the freezer outside and hosing it out. But no, I had to deal with draining it and rinsing it in my kitchen. Tons of fun.

Just stopping in to say 'hi' ... I'm headed out to do some weight training! Hopefully I'll make it 2 times this week ... my goal is to get in to a 3xweek routine.

It's nice to have a exercise partner so close ... mine should be out walking with me ... but hasn't figured that out yet. He's not overweight so he doesn't see the need ... but he is getting older and he does need to get some exercise.

Our kids surprised us with a party on Saturday night ... we were surprised ... no one gave it away and knowing our family and friends that was amazing!

Have a great day everyone ...

Yay. I'm not alone. Pop in whenever you can, I'll be here. :) Congratulations on your 40th. That's AMAZING!
Went on a run tonight, after work, with my honey. He was patient with me and very encouraging. I think

I am going to stalk this board until people come back.

I am very excited. I finally got my man to get a sp acct. He won't be around on the message boards, totally not his thing, and I'll do all of his tracking for him, but it makes him realize that he needs to give me more support in this weight loss journey. It will be so much easier if we are doing it together. I am so excited.

I've heard alot of people saying that lately. It's weird that I haven't been affected. Usually I am super sensitive to allergens.

Hi everyone, well I just got my new Pom mix. I have uploaded pictures of him for everyone to see. He is a year old and a sweet boy. His name is Jacob or Jake.

emoticon I'm so bad on SparkPeople this week ... I've even had a couple of days that I didn't log in! I don't think I've tracked anything for almost 2 weeks ... I've been busy with my paint project that I've let everything slide.

I'm almost done ... at least the hard part is over in the dining room. one more full day of painting, and then a little staining of my chair rail and quarter round molding. I'm hoping S-O-L will put that up for me.

I'll wait until after my Garden Club Convention later in April to do the kitchen.

In the meantime ... I haven't forgotten any of you ... and I think about you all the time! I hope everyone has a Very Joyous Easter ...

Good evening Sparkers. I thought I'd better pop in since I haven't been here forever.

I really enjoyed the dinner at Hoss's last week with all of you. Even tho I haven't been doing my leaders duties, I have been reading posts. Nice to put a face to the names.

Thanks to the rest of the leaders for keeping things going so well! New members, daily challenges, etc. You are doing one terrific job, and hopefully, in another week or two, I'll be out from under some of the things going on here, and I'll be able to be back again. Hope you are enjoying the sunshine and warmer weather, and and getting out to walk, garden, ride you bike, whatever you enjoy doing.

Well it was a nice day again--could have been warmer.
My crocus's are all open, and one of my many daffodil is ready to open--but I think the crocus's still need 1 more snow. Maybe this weekend we will get the last of the s.....w!!
