New Year, New You should be New Day, New You!!! Every day, we have a chance to start over and reset our goals!! It's far too easy to pack it in when we mess up. We are given the opportunity each and every day to start over and chase our dreams!

Ejarman, welcome. These are some of the best of the best here on Sparkpages. Join in, many of us have walked in your shoes. We love new people so welcome welcome!

Papers grading, members melting, busy Zs and lots of coming and going. We are a busy bunch. Good job.

I am back to the treadmill. Cant go out. Looking for some Holly kind of weather. They have us scared to death. Power outages, freezing rain, all the nasty stuff. Oh well spring is 6 weeks away I dont care what they say.

Off to the tread mill. Bye

Sue! Awesome pic! Sooooooo proud of you!!!!

I spent most of the weekend grading and still not done. Doesn't quite surprise me though -- I've been here before. DH was hoping I was completely done -- then I had to break it to him that THESE papers are just the ones turned in ON TIME. I have a bunch more that I'll get this week that are technically late. It's going to be a busy week..... Love ya, Divas!

Wendy! I miss you! Glad you made it in.

Holly - what a drag. I'm glad they found your bug, though. Why do you need/love it so much? I know the basics of it, but maybe I don't, lol.

Zmomma - enjoy your trip!

Well, I'm already feeling some differences in my body, ie. I actually am FULL after meals and my... er... plumbing is working much better than it was. Wow. Holly, thanks so much for the offer of help. I'm not so phased on the Gluten stuff, as much as the dairy and egg stuff, but I got a Vegan cookbook where a lot of the recipes are gluten free and I'm getting the hang of adapting many others, just by reading, so I figure it will just be fun trial and error. I may well tap your knowledge, though! The thing about the vegan cookbook, teehee, is that I plan to add meat to many of the recipes! Oh, I'm bad... ;-) I figured, though, that I'd be sure there wouldn't be dairy or eggs involved!

Hope everyone's having a great Sunday!

Hugs,
Jen

After a VERY unsleepful night, the housekeeping and lost and found at the hotel FINALLY was unlocked, and sure enough there was my bugg..so its a long drive but i'm going to get it. she offered to mail it..NOPE. no way. 24 hours without it is 24 hours too long.

Good morning, Divas! I am in DC for a meeting and have been splurging with some college friends. Lots of snow and chill here.

Holly, loved your car story. Now you don't have to freeze your ass off!
Claire, hope there were some good essays to make you feel like it is worth the effort.

I am visiting Mom & Sis. Hope everyone has a good Sunday!

Woohoo, Holly!!! That WAS a funny story, but it's GREAT that you have that car starter. You GO, GF!!!

EJ - WELCOME! This is a great group - stick with us and we'll help you on your journey. FWIW, I'm also 51, also have symptoms, also have TOM every 28 days, also have about 100 lbs. to lose. Ugh. We can have fun on our journey together.

Claire - I'm with Holly - my two least fave books of the English sequence are Animal Farm and Lord of the Flies, especially the latter. Our kids have to write several essays per term. Holly - the 8 paragraph format is unusual - we usually require 5 or 7 (either 3 body paragraphs or 5).

Well... here's my big news. I'm allergic to gluten, dairy and eggs. Yikes! This may well help me to drop the weight finally, but needless to say, it's a big adjustment. I've been waiting for the tests to come back and kind of figured about the gluten and dairy, but the eggs threw me a bit. Fortunately, I have two good friends who have been dealing with the gluten free thing for a long time, so they've been giving me advice. I splurged and got a couple of cookbooks today. Off to read them now. Hope everyone's having a lovely Saturday night!

Hugs,
Jen

OK girls. ready for my blonde act of the decade? Every year..last friday night in Jan, i go to Plattsburgh to meet my college friend Connie.
We go out to dinner, usually with another guy we graduated with, Bill. He couldnt make dinner last night, so Connie and i went to Applebees 2 for 20, only we kinda had some bahama mamas too, then went back to the hotel and opened a bottle of hot sex so we got chocolated out, too, lights out at 11, talked till 1..LOL. got up this AM to meet Bill for breakfast. Open curtains. uh oh..lots of fresh snow.
so we go to our cars, next to each other. i open my doors, put in my stuff, groping around for my car brush..keys in my hand. Now remember, i have had this car for THREE YEARS. i find the brush but its stuck. lean on my key fob. straighten up. start brushing. VROOOOOM. i turn around..nice Connie you got one of those auto start things? uhhh not my car Holly thats yours. No, i dont have auto start. ummm well its running..
i swear i almost had a heart attack. we are late to meet bill so we get in. i try to put the car in drive. it shuts off. the wheel is locked. i jump out flag Connie down. at this point we are laughing hysterically...
ok so my foot hits the brake and i can get the key to work. we get to friendlys. get out. i start playing with the fob trying to figure out how to get it to do it again. nope. wont work. we walk away. the car starts. we look at each other and scream. yeah. like 2 little girls. IT MUST BE a ghost. theres this man..he starts laughing..says..think theres a ghost in the parking lot? i go over. unlock car. step on the brake. uyp it shuts off.
ok fast forward. go in restaurant. hug bill. tell him about car. he explains there is some sequence, i must have hit it. doors must be locked. but bill..it was open the first time.
have breakfast. head for lot. bill says..let me show you on my car. hits his sequence. doesnt start. uh oh. we are almost rolling on the ground in laughter. i start pushing buttons on mine. nothing. nada. zip. Connie says..well i gotta go. she gives me a hug. my car starts. LMAO!!!
Bills still wont start. so we all three hang out till everyone is started (those 2 manually,,me ghost start)
i get home. Kev..come see this. i push all the buttons. 6 times. nothing. i say. oh. never mind. we turn around to come in. the car starts..LMAO!!
Kevs eyes get all big. YOU HAVE A CAR STARTER? yeah. hahah
he says..gimme dat. he plays with it a few mins. he figures it out. no kidding. it freaking works. every time.
I HAVE A CAR STARTER!!! when its 30 below I DONT HAVE TO GO OUTSIDE!!! YYYEEEEE HAAAAAA!!!!

I'm new to posting on any board. I'm almost 51, have 100 pounds to lose, and although I still have a period every 28 days, I've had menopausal symptoms for several years. I'm looking forward to making connections in my journey to a healthier body.

Claire..i think one of my least favorite books on the planet is Animal Farm. that and lord of the flies. i found them both totally disturbing..i'd fight you on them too.
when i did the long term in special ed in the fall the kids had to write essays. 8 paragraphs. you'd think we had asked them to pull out their fingernails. they fought it and fought it. so we did the first paragraph for them. said..USE IT. one down.
you wouldnt believe how many of them didnt use it..then said..you didnt show us what you really wanted. oy vey

Jen, I love the friends and book night idea. I need to try that! Have a great 24 romantic 24 hours! Glad you are feeling better.
IMBC- The Odessy was as good choice for both girls and boys. It started me reading all the Greek myths and legends. Maybe it will affect them the same way!
Holly, Hi. You are always so up and positive. Love it!

We read The Odyssey so their topic is heroes. They are supposed to choose a hero and discuss their heroic qualities. 1000 words. Not much but it freaks them out -- along with taking notes, parenthetical citations, works cited, etc. It takes me about 15 minutes to read one thoroughly. 150 kids -- you do the math! Frankly, it's kind of a beating for all of us but it's a requirement of the department. And I know they'll use these skills as long as they are in school. They don't realize how valuable this information is and fight me every step of the way. That's why I wanted to start the semester with it-- so we could do the work, walk through it and move on. Animal Farm is next......

Also, I find when I take breaks I'm less grouchy about the grading and the students do better! ;-) What did the students research?

We had SO much fun last night. I had 4 friends over who LOVE to read, and I made them favorite recipes and then we traded which books we've loved recently - fiction, non-fiction, etc. We laughed a lot, had a nice fire, and it was great. I was *just* over my calories for the day and I was fine with that. It was a great time.

Con will be at a thing tomorrow night through Saturday night, so Dave and I get a romantic 24 hours together - so I'm psyched about that, as well.

What I'm MOST psyched about is that I'm FINALLY on the mend - feeling better and actually got yoga in this morning. Woohooo!

Have a lovely Thursday!

Hugs,
Jen

I'm just starting my grading. Rough drafts are due tomorrow but I give 10 bonus points if they turn it in early so that I can get a little jump on the pile I anticipate tomorrow. This weekend isn't going to be much fun...... emoticon

Oops! Thanks for passing that on, Sock - I'm certainly guilty. I just think we should ALL feel like Beautiful Women!!! ;-)

Claire - I'm finally finished with final grading as of this morning. Connor still has two more finals. My next semester starts Monday - what about you?

Well, Holly, I somewhat blew it later last night, but I DID track and I was still in range. Today is going fine, but I'm having girlfriends for dinner and I'm making them a *very* nice dinner, so I'm going to enjoy it - with small portions. ;-)

Hope everyone's having a good Wednesday!

Hugs,
Jen

Just quick popping in because I got a Spark mail from another forum and want to pass it along:

Subject: Message from Spark Staff
Message: Hi everyone

This is just a friendly reminder to please not pass along "chain" type SparkMails or comments on your SparkPage. There's one going around right now about being a beautiful person and passing it along to 3 other people you know. It's nice in theory, but can easily get out of hand.

I'd ask that you spread the word to prevent things like this from continuing.

Thanks!

Holly - congrats on the continuing loss! You ROCK!

Zmomma - nice to see you!

I'm back on track again... happy to be there. Still up and down with the exercise, given that I'm still up and down with the stupid cold.

Hope everyone has a lovely evening!

Hugs,
Jen

Happy New Year, Divas! I've been reading the posts and it looks like everyone is off to a good start. I am returning from being MIA yet again; but I am sure you darling "sistas" will forgive me (also, yet again!) I am back to tracking food and activity and hope to start losing again. Where oh where is my fellow Texan gal, Claire? emoticon

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday so far!

I'm up 2.2 lbs. this week, but that's no surprise considering the past week. I'm delighted, though, to be back on track and starting to feel better. I've even gotten some yoga in yesterday and today, and I might try some WATP later (my gentlest DVD).

I have a very topsy turvy week this week and I'm hoping that I'll just breeze through it.

Where IS everyone?

Holly - are you a frozen polar bear? I hope everyone's dealing okay with the frigid temps.

Hugs,
Jen

I came across an awesome website, Divas. It's called Operation Beautiful and it's mission is for women everywhere to stop the negative self-talk and create their own definition of beautiful. Very cool -- check it out! Have a great Sunday!

Good question, Holly! I'm still fighting off the STUPID cold, but getting better. This hasn't been the best food/exercise week, but it hasn't been the worst, either, and I've been tracking everything, so that's good.

Divas! Come out, come out wherever you are! TGIF!

Hi Everyone!

Holly and Leslie you are both ROCKING! Forgive me if I've forgotten anyone in that exercise vein.

Raine - lose the laptop! You deserve that time with your sister. I'm so glad you and DH will get a good break.

Wendy - it sounds like you're stressing again - grab hold of that exercise! Do it! ;-)

Sock - GREAT to see you! I sure hope that cold calms down. Have been keeping up with your mom's progress via your blog. I hope the oxygen is removed today and that the prognosis is excellent.

I'm keeping on keeping on - full exercise and doing my tracking and water thing.

Sending love to all and a happy Wednesday!

Hugs,
Jen

Good morning, divas! MIA Sock here... Something happened to my Spark setting and all the email notifications stopped. I found the problem yesterday FINALLY and am getting emails again. And here I see the blog has been busy!

My mother had her surgery on Friday (bilateral mastectomies for breast cancer) and has her first follow-up visit with the surgeon today. We're hoping to get the final path report and are praying that she's done. Post-op was a tiny bit rough and she was discharged on oxygen. She's doing great now, however -- spent 2 days with my sis, then returned to her own home (about 10 minutes from my sis), and even went to choir practice for a short time. She's an amazing stubborn old cuss. LOL!!

My cold is still hanging on and settled firmly in my chest, so I'm not exercising the moment. Any exertion has me coughing and sputtering. Hopefully a few more days of babying everything will help.

It looks like you ladies are doing f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c with the boot camp and everything else y'all are doing. Rock on, divas!!!!


I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me. Phil. 4:13.

Leslie, good to see you back here on the site. I love our balance ball. Especially rolling over it backwards to crack my own back. Just be careful when you first start...roll it next to a couch or something you can grab onto, it's easy to fall off.

Wendy, I hate, hate, hate, being in charge and yet it seems its where I have ended up my entire life. Somethings are good about it, but the babysitting I hate. And the worse place to be is in middle management....no final say in things so employees come to you unhappy and upper management will not give you the tools to fix things for the employees...well you get the picture. Just do what you know is right and if I can give you one word of advance, and this is the hard one....stay the boss...do not become anyone's friend. It keeps the work environment easier to handle the hard stuff and it has at least been my experience, the ones I went to bat for always were the ones who stabbed me in the back. Did I ever tell you about what I did to a bunch of snoops in the office who I found out were going through my desk when I wasn't there. It's a classic, I still chuckle to this day....

Pooh...I wish those were my numbers and accomplishments those where Holly and Sue's. So the congrats go to them.

Off to an early meeting. My goal is to get all the work in order and pray the staff will step up while I'm gone so I do not have to even take my lap top. At this point my mind is 85% determined that I will not need to ...well actually the mind is 110%, the work is 85%. We'll see what I can get accomplished in the next few days.

Holly, did I see on the radar that you got rain/sleet? Hope nothing serious.

Have a great day everyone!
-Raine

Leslie, I am trying to figure out how you teleworked giving segway tours...from your computer? te he.

Raine, please let go and enjoy yourself. You could "forget" to bring the lap top. By the way the new pic is too cute. I remember when the only photo we had of you was your little girl pic. You grew up nicely.

Today I wonder if its worth it to be the one in charge. Stress is edible right? Arr. Nice to be here where its calm and I feel the love. Off to do the treamill thing.

Holly OMG! you rock as usual!

Hello sweet Divas,
The ice and snow has melted away here in ATL. There was a picture going around of a couple of people trying to get a car unstuck from a snow drift and underneath the caption was " 2 snow plows . 10 salt truck, 4,500,000 people...you do the math". none the less I teleworked and got a few things done around the house. When it was safe to get out, my BFF and I went to Ross and I scored a balance ball, plus dvd for under $10. So I have no excuse not to move, not to excersize. I did the cardio blast video from this site, plus danced my heart out to rock n roll for about 2 songs. Just sweating that fat away!
Yesterday, we walked around Oakland Cemetary doing the audio tour(via cell phone) on the black section of the graveyard. Good history and great walking trail.
Wendy, I am so glad that the boss made about face in the work place! I don't know what our dept will be now that there is a new Governor and new commissioner. So far the new "agenda" isn't very appealing...I will just leave it as that.
I will continue to fight what is best for me, enjoy my victorys and learn from my setbacks.
Love to all,
Leslie

WOW...15LBS GONE...PANTS SIZES DOWN FROM 22 TO 13...ENTHUSIASM...ADJUSTMENTS. YOU GUYS ALL ROCK!!!!!!

Well it is done. Almost as an impulse...the tickets are purchased and DH and I are flying to New Mexico to visit my sister who had the stroke a year and 1/2 ago. She is so excited. It will be worth every dreaded airport event that I am sure will happen. hate flying anymore.

Now trying to push to get work to a place I can leave the laptop home. We leave in 10 days.

You guys keep up the good work. I can't wait to get there and do some outdoor walking! How's that for my input into the team efforts?

Love you guys all...expecting more weight loss and success stories when I get back.

...HUGS TO ALL

Wendy, when I'm having trouble with exercise I take it down a notch, and then as I'm feeling energetic again, kick it up! I think slow but steady wins the race with our somewhat overly used bodies. ;-)

And I didn't mean that I shouldn't be targeted to move - we ALL should be reminded. I just am still grappling with consistency with FOOD. Sigh.

Hugs,
Jen

Jen, sorry, I was looking the other way and NOT meaning you and a few others who are already miles ahead of us. Sorry you are not well.

I have found that my burst before the holidays has faded and I have to work harder than I did then to do the same workout. My DH said that is life, its about doing what you can when you can and not skipping when you are able. I like that.

Claire, if I visualize winning the lottery do I still have to buy a ticket? lol THAT would be a nice dream to think on.

It's funny, Claire, we don't have school on MLK Day in MI. Con is home today, and I've done errands with him.

Wendy, I've actually been great about moving - it's more about food than other things for me. Today, though, I took the day off because even when I meditated my body hurt - a clear signal that I'm too sick. The cold has moved into full-blown territory and I slept 12 hours last night. I'm hoping to be back tomorrow to a more regular routine.

Holly - again, thanks for the recipe. I still may doctor it a bit - not as extremely as you did. ;-) I'm sure full-blown it's to die for, though.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Monday!

Hugs,
Jen

No poker win for my DH or me this year.....but there's always next year!!

I loved Wendy's post about visualization. It's a powerful tool -- I read an article recently about a woman who visualized herself winning a $112 million lottery -- and she DID! Even down to the shirt she was wearing. The more detail and feeling (ie excitment) you create while you visualize is optimum.

Been a busy weekend. Back to school tomorrow......

I am reminded again that the road we walk is not an option for many of us. We HAVE to brush our teeth or our teeth will fall out. We HAVE to get out of bed or our lives would crumble and we HAVE to take care of ourselves our our health will crumble. Its no longer about "good" days and "bad" days. That is fooling ourselves.
That behavior may have been acceptable in our youth but at this age KNOCK it OFF!. There are no more excuses, we have used them all up. They dont work. Too tired, is loo little movement making us slow down. You know energy begets energy.
So come on girls, pull on those track shoes, WII controllers, bike shorts (really?) and get it moving. Do you really want to be a butt farmer all winter? The spring crop will never look better if you move it now.
Get up, put down the latte and get moving. 15 min today is not too much to ask. You would do it for your family, right?

Holly - what are your famous potatoes? The cook in me has to ask. ;-) Good for you for learning that enough is enough, though.

I did manage to get back on track yesterday, and felt much better for it. Still punky, but on the mend and I got my long yoga in this morning.

Have a lovely Sunday, everyone!

Claire - good luck today! Enjoy!

Janet - great to hear from you - and it sounds like you're rockin' the Spark!

Pam - good that you had a better day!

Wendy - WOOOHOOOOO, GF! You are singin' it!

Holly - are you having a fab time with your boy and his gf?

I had another hard day yesterday, but I TRACKED every, last, blessed calorie, and it could have been worse. I'm still feeling punky and today I'm going to give in to bed and stay AWAY from the fridge. I'm still doing well on water, exercise, fruits and veggies. In fact, I stuck to all my goals yesterday except I had one more dessert than normal.

I guess I can still say that I've done 9/10 out of 120 days so far!

Have a lovely Saturday!

Wendy -- you are awesome! I love how you can take a situation and turn it around with honesty and humor. So glad things are going well at work.

I agree about the scales. Don't let a fluctuating number rule your life.

Long weekend -- yay! And our annual family poker game is tomorrow. It should be fun (I won last year -- wish me luck for this year!!). And the baby's birthday party is right at the end of the game so we'll be swinging by (after either my DH or I has won the game! lol). He's not much of a baby anymore -- he'll be 5 on the 23rd.

Have a great Fri, Divas!

Hello lovely ladies,

I'm sorry I haven't been visiting much. I'm trying to cut back a little bit on my time on the computer. Work is going well, I'm still completely on track with this "spark thang" and family life is pretty good. (touch wood) I hope you are all well!

Warmest wishes and emoticon

NSS, Jen, Wendy - Thanks! I think I got the message
"STAY OFF THE SCALES". I can be a slow learner sometimes. I needed your tough love response! I made it through the day without pigging out.

Visualization is part of faith. If you visualize it and have faith, you can make it happen with God's help. It just may not happen exactly like you thought it would. Lack of patience keeps me from using this on myself. emoticon

Raine, sorry about all the sadness in your life. You are right its not fair that mean evil people live long lives and good people die young.

Dont laugh at me, Raine, but I use visualization every day for almost everything. I even got my dh that way. I make a list and then just see myself doing it. In fact I think the flu was trying to get me this week but I refused to tell anyone. If they said you dont look well, I said yes I am well and I will be even better, just please dont ask while I am thinking myself well.

I know one can take it as voodoo or magic but I give it to God and let him bless it then I just act as if. The weight thing is the ONLY thing I think it does not work on, therefore it does not.

Ladies, it IS possible to teach an old dog new tricks. Today we had a good laugh at what an AXX he was last week, my official first week on the job even though I have been there since Dec 4, last week was my first week in my position and not doing paperwork or training.

Now that we have come to an understanding, I am having great days. I told him I will NOT stand for abuse in ANY form to ANYone. He said he did not realize he was being a bully and he is not really like that.

This week we have joked, laughed and made 2011 plans that make me feel like I belong. I would love to bring my dh over but bossman is afraid of us both leaving him, which I dont blame him. God will tell me what is next.

The best part of this place is no haters, no stupid people and no one glaring at me when I walk in. The old job calls me every day with some new problem to solve. I told them this is the last week that I can do that. So life is good again.

If you read back you will see that my life is a Disney ride for anyone trying to keep up. I move fast and have some really wide mood swings. No grey for this girl.

POOH- BACK AWAY FROM THE SCALES!!! DID WE TEACH YOU NOTHING? Listen to Holly. She is a wise woman.

For me, I refuse to let a number rule my mood. When the scale does not say what I want it to say, I backslide for weeks after. NO WAY! Its too hard to loose a pound and too easy for water to distort the progress.

Get a pair of pants, a shirt a belt, anything that you can use to measure success. Please, we want you to stay with it. Do not let this be a set back. One day next week you will get on and find a5 pound drop for no apparent reason, so back off!

This weekend I get my hair cut, my nails done and my eyebrows waxed. I will look almost human again. No time for fluff in the past few weeks so now its urgent! My hair stay chin length but now its past my bra, way too long for fine hair.

I did the tradmill tonight and am back on track. Even got a load of laundry going while I walked. In the groove...............

YOU?

Thanks for the chocolate cautions, all. I wish I could say I heeded them, but... it was one of those icky nights. But, on the bright side, it was the first mistake in a week and a half, and I was back on track today.

Pam, I echo Holly - stay OFF the scale! ;-) Truly... I can be like a scale roller coaster in a given week. Also, you just had surgery - let yourself heal.

Raine, I hope the news on your brother is good news!

Still feeling punky, but after dinner tonight, I'm going straight to bed and keeping my nose OUT of the refrigerator!

Hugs,
Jen

Thanks NSS. I know better but could not resist it. I am so desperate to lose this time (maybe too desperate), that it don't take much to upset me. Menopause is killing me!
