So how did the closet makeover go, Lisa? I had one, too. But, mine was just changing out my warm weather clothes for cold weather ones.

I'm going to have a marathon closet overhaul this weekend. It's crammed full of things that are too big and things I never wear. I say it's high time to make room for some fresh items.

Hope all is well! I just wanted to take the time to make a post, for the first time in awhile!

I have been so stressed about the weight loss and lack of that I decided to take a short break from spark, diet and workout. I am back now, but going about it in a different way. I am hoping I can even things out a bit, because without balance it's hopeless! Best of luck to all!

There is no I or U in T-E-A-M!

UNITED we stand and in GOD we trust!

I haven't had much time for the computer either. I am still in Minnesota and can only get online when I can get a wireless connection. With my 2 year old and days old granddaughters and spending time with my daughter, there just isn't time for the computer. Things are going good here. I will try to write a blog later. Have a great remainder of the week.

Happy Wednesday everyone. I've been really busy at work and not spending much time on Spark, but all is well, otherwise. There is so much to do outside, it seems a shame to sit inside in front of a computer screen... June is just flying by, although we are still waiting for summer-like temperatures to hit. Off to a farmers market at lunch - the asparagus and strawberries are in full swing. MMMMMM....

It's a dreary wet grey day here in TO. Anyone in need of a bit of optimism in their life today? I know I was, and happened to stumble upon this wonderful website that contains a collection of writings from all sorts of people on why they are optimistic. I know I felt recharged after ready just a couple of the submissions. Happy day! www.theoptimistconspectus.com/

Enjoyed the 3 days here. Spent a bit of 2 of them stripping corner china cabinets I have of my mother's. Been wanting to do it for years. I can't wait to get completed.

We have had gorgeous weather the past few days. It is the first Memorial Day weekend I remember being nice here in the PNW since we moved here 7 years ago. Our great weather is suppose to continue for several days.

Have a great week!

sadly it was not a holiday weekend in Ontario - so just the regular two-day marathon of trying to get it all done in not enough time... but the days are flying by so it will be the weekend again soon... happy tuesday.

Howdy all - seems like too beautiful a day to be sitting inside in front of a computer screen, but when I call in sick on account of sunshine, I feel to guilty to actually enjoy the day! Thankfully the evenings are long and warm these days, so I will manage. Looking forward to trying another boxing class on Saturday - I went for the first time last week and now that I have regained use of my muscles, I'm ready for more. Happy long weekend to the american folks on the team - here in Canada our long weekend was last weekend and aside from the torrential rains followed by cccccold cccccold wind, it was pretty alright!

Sounds terrific just don't think it would work for me. I'm just not a city girl. Don't get me wrong I enjoy being there when I want to be but onstantly.

I'm down 1.4 lbs this week. I hope I can keep this going.

I moved to a place closer to my city's downtown core to avoid that problem. I decided a couple of years ago that I never want to own a car, and public transit is so crowded it drives me nuts! So I walk or cycle to work year round. There are days its so cold I want to cry, or so hot that I pack my work clothes in a bag and change when I get where I'm going, but I wouldn't change it. And I love living downtown, its noisy and busy and there's always something going on... Have a great weekend.

Lovely bike ride to work this morning. I'm enjoying having my bike back on the road this summer. Doesn't seem to matter what time I leave for work, or how I get there, I am always 7 minutes late...

Now that its monday the weather is back to perfect - sunny and warm. And where am I spending the day? Why in an all-ut windowless office. Sigh, welcome to my life... have a great weekeverybody!

We are going to a home and garden show tomorrow at the fairgrounds. Unfortunately, the weather isn't suppose to be as nice as last weekend. Tomorrow there is suppose to be rain later in the day with temps in the 60s.

Since I had an employee go out on medical leave this week I have to work tomorrow night. UGH!

Thanks. I am actually glad to know this is something relatively minor that I can tackle with exercise. There are so many insurmountable illnesses/injuries, I'll take this for now... The exercises are pretty simple - I will attach one of the links I dug up with a few. My plan is to start getting up 1/2 hour earlier, doing a few minutes' warm up then these exercises and a few weight exercises - if I commit to doing this every week day I think I will really see the results. Plus one of my yoga teachers is going to give me some ideas... www.arc4life.com/site/615058/page/99

Well I just got back from the Dr.'s office - results of my back x-ray are in and not what I wanted to hear, although certainly not the worst news possible - disc narrowing and impingement into the neuroforamina at C5-6 and C6-7 -- that translates into "pain in the neck" - and arm, and hand -- and more motivation to take the yoga practice up a notch! I've got a bunch of neck exercises to do to strengthen my neck and we shall see if we can't undo this offensive early sign of aging...

happy Monday all. Hope the weekend went well. I've got a busy week planned. I am signed up to participate in an Earthday walk/run this coming Sunday and it will likely be a walk given some problems I am having with my left achilles. No use crippling myself. Was out and about on my bike over the weekend - its still pretty chilly but still so lovely to be able to be outside! HOpe everyone is off to a good start to the week.

Hi team,

Hope everyone is doing well. I'e started using a weighted belt and wrist weights with my work out DVDs and I've noticed a big difference in the calories I'm burning. I think I'll keep this up for a while and see what happens.

Hi all,

Hope all is well with everyone. I'm celebrating today! This mornings weigh-in has me at losing exactly 25 pounds!! emoticon emoticon
Although this isn't my final goal I am on the down slide. I want to thank everyone who encouraged me along the way especially during my 10 week plateau!

THANKS!!

Our previous chatroom was called Fireside Chat. We have a new thread, so that fire has been extinguished.

WooHoo!!!! that is awesome!



Stop living for what's around the corner and start enjoying the walk down the street!!!


It is not who you are that holds you back, but who you think you are!!!

Think twice before you speak, and then you may be able to say something more insulting than if you spoke right out at once.
-- Evan Esar (1899 - 1995), Esar's Comic Dictionary

Morning all well I'm sick again every time the seasons change but I m not going to let a stuffed head slow me down

My enemies don't be glad because of my troubles!
I may have fallen, but I will get up;
I may be sitting in the dark, but the Lord is my light
Micah 7:8

It is April Fool's Day, but this is no joke. The fire has been extinguished. This is our new chat room.
