It's been raining here again today and the roads were already flooded from all the rains we had last week.

I am having a bad MS day and in a lot of pain, so my motivation to exercise is pretty low. I did take Bella for her walk, but she was very guarded with me and kept trying to return back home which is unusual because she loves to walk. But we have been taking it pretty slow the rest of the day, just trying to adjust to my pain level to keep on going.
Hope you all had a great day.
Talk to you later.

Well Good Morning! Everyone is beating me to the punch this morning! I shouldn't be surprised since you are 3 hours ahead of me. LOL

Maureen, I am so jealous of you getting all that rain! I'm sure we will be bringing the hot weather with us when we come to MO for our visit in a couple weeks. LOL Murphy's Law. ALTHOUGH I must say that it might be nicer if it wasn't raining while we are there. I still am trying to figure out what to wear. Don't want to pack much, and don't want to buy anything for this fat body either. Hmmmm dilemma! What to wear!

Beth, you have been so good about walking Bella. I just got that staring eye from Buddy about 5 minutes ago wanting to go for a walk. I have a headache this morning and really don't feel like doing much of anything. I just hope I'm not catching what DH brought home... he was S-I-C-K! Yuck! I've been sleeping in the other room so not to catch his cooties! LOL

We haven't heard much from Julie, Scarlett & Lisa lately. I hope they are all OK and well.

Well, gang... the coffee is on. Have a cup before your day gets too far away from you today.

Hugs,
Becky

Good morning westie fans.

Beth, I'm fine, I was just referring to my lack of motivation and eating everything I see. Walking and bathing the dogs was a start. I hope to get on my exercise bike this afternoon.

Becky, You'd love our weather today. It is going to rain here again, we've had over 6.5 inches of rain so far this month. Rain and white dogs don't go together very well. lol Maybe we should save some of it for when you visit next month.

Back to work, they do pay me to work not goof off.

Maureen

Hi just got back from doctor and thought I would check in before going to bed. Hope everyone had a great day. What's going on Maureen with the Restart Huddle Comment - is everything alright?

Got home too late to walk Bella, she's mopping around I think she's having walking withdrawal (lol).

Good afternoon everyone.
I can't ever seem to get here in the mornings to post now that I am traveling to the gym - it seems like I am always trying to catch up.
I am going to be going to the doctor in Little Rock again tomorrow so I will be MIA all day.
I hope everyone is feeling well today and having a good day.
Becky I hope you didn't get too tired doing housework - dusting and vacuuming are two of my least favorites. I can hardly wait for invention of dust free furniture.
Talk to you all soon.

Good Morning Teamies!

It's a crisp sunny day here in N. Calif this morning! I've been up since 6 doing all the things that women do in the mornings! I have 2 loads of laundry done and I need to change the sheets in the front bedroom. Then today is dust and vacuum day along with a little ironing.

Guess I'd better get busy if I want to get it all done.

The coffee pot is on and there are bite size donuts if you are so venturous! 33 calories. LOL I've been good and left them alone. DH loves them.

Stop by!

Keep that Spark Burning!

No. We have all done our part in trying to get the inactive members to join us. It is up to them now. I keep my eyes opened for people who are Westie Fans and invite them into our group. We are doing so fantastic with just the few of us. It is absolutely amazing!

DD stayed home with DGD. When Rich went to pick her up she had gotten sick (throwing up) and Shannan decided to call in sick to work to stay home with her. Thank goodness. I don't want to be around any of this flu! So DH and I went to Costco today and picked up the groceries and then came home.

It's been raining all day and we are loving it! The rain will stop long enough for us to sit outside or get from the car to the house. It's not constant. Very nice. Tomorrow it will be gone.

Hugs to everyone tonight! I will see you all in the morning!

Becky hope you have a great time with your grand-daughter even though she was sick. I hope it was not anything serious that is wrong with her. Sorry about those 2 pounds - they can be sneaky like that sometimes, very frustrating though. I have contacted all on the list of members via the challenge, but I see no one new (or rather inactive) has yet to join in. Should we keep on contacting them or just start doing the ghostly challenge contacts among the ones that are participating?

Good Morning Team!
Just a quick one cup of coffee for me this morning. I'm expecting DD to bring over one of the DGD to stay with us because she was sick last night and can't go to school. That means I'd better get my act in gear! AHGG

This morning was weigh in day. Not a good sight. I gained those darn 2 pounds back! I am beginning to feel like a hamster stuck on my wheel! I guess I will just have to try harder.

Talk to you later.
Becky

Good afternoon everyone.

Maureen - glad you are not sick, but sorry your husband is. You are right about men being big babies about being sick my college aged son gets sick with just a cold and mopes around like he's going to die. Sometimes it's easier to be sick yourself than to have a sick male around -lol.

Becky - your trip sounds like fun. I have never been to St. Louis except in the airport on a layover and you don't really get a lot of scenery there. I hope you have fun.

I am tired from my trip back, but am very glad to be back. Bella has just been laying around she is definetly a homebody, but I found out even more on this trip that she is very attached to me as well - she didn't even want me to leave the room to pack the car even though my Mom was in the room with her.
It will be a long time before we make another motel trip.

I am very happy with my 4.4 pound loss this week - finally got over that slow weight loss spell I was having so maybe I am making progress again. This makes 40.8 since July 23 I am so grateful to Sparks and especially all of you on this team that keep me motivated.

My MS is acting up, but I am determined not to let it get me discouraged. I plan on having a great week. I hope you all have a great day and an even better week.

Good afternoon all,

Becky, I'm not sick but hubby still is. I haven't been on the bike but I have been cleaning. Just finished my closet and the bedroom and bathroom are next. I do need to get on my bike and I also need to work on some stepping stones. I have one almost done but I haven't touched it in almost a month. We have a lot of cob webs now in the basement. Not sure I want to go down there, lol.

Beth, your weight loss is wonderful. Keep up the good work.

I've had my english tea and am now on to the diet Dr. Pepper.

Time to go start on cleaning again.

Good Sunday Morning Westie Fans!

Well... we didn't make it to the soccer games yesterday. After DH got up we decided to pass on being around all the kids. There has been a lot of flu lately and we're better off just staying out of those situations for now.

This morning it looks like rain again. Thank God. We sure need it. I know that many of you have been antedated with rain and are sick of it, but here it has been a different story.

Yesterday I got my spinning time in. When I spin I usually do so with my eyes closed just listening to the music. Yesterday I opened my eyes to find Buddy laying completely under the bike! I have no idea how long he had been there. I just continued spinning on... and soon he was gone. I'm sure he was wanting me to take him for a walk. Didn't get it done. I'll have to walk him today.

So tell me what's going on with you? Lisa, are you feeling better? Beth, how are you this morning after your illness yesterday? And Maureen, are you down with your bike this morning?

Well, the coffee's on and I need to get myself a cup. Stop by and have a cup with me.

Keep that Spark!
Becky

Hi Maureen! Funny thing... I was just thinking about telling everyone about my plans to go to St. Louis and you ask! Our minds are running on the same railroad track! LOL

Yes, the plans are set. My sister, mom and I are flying into St. Louis on 11/6. I made reservations for us in the same hotel we stayed in when we were there a couple years ago. The Renaissance on Washington Avenue. We had a great view of the Arch from our room's balcony... hope we can have the same good fortune. The reunion is planned for the 7th at the Tower Grove Park. We will be flying home on the 9th. It's a quick one. I sure hope the weather will be nice.

=-)

I agree... men are babies! sigh! Hey, and you better get busy on that bike... or on something! What's going on? I hope you haven't been sick!

Beth, glad you're home safe and sound.

Becky, have you made your plans to come to St Louis?
hope you enjoyed the soccer games.

DH is sick with a cold, why is men are such big babies when they are sick? The sun finally came out today and all I did was stay inside. I did get some cleaning done. Not really how I wanted to spend my weekend but it needed to be done.

I haven't been on my exercise bike in almost a month, I haven't contributed any miles to our Hawaii challenge. It's time to get off my butt and move it. lol

Hello everyone,
Well Bella and I returned a day early and I didn't walk in the race today. I am having some problems with my MS and I was having some sort stomach virus too, so we just decided to just drive back just incase I got worse. I was not able to post a lot while I was gone the computer was up and down so I missed posting my miles I have updated those now.

I am going to be early no sleep last night so I will talk to you all later.

Good Morning Team!

Well it's Saturday! DH and I are heading to the soccer field to watch 3 of our DGDs play. They all start at 9 am so we will be walking from field to field so we can watch each one for a little while.

Afterwards I think we will head off to Costco. I've been putting this trip off, but can't do it much longer. Coffee is down to the last bit, and if I want to invite our Westie Team to stop in for a morning cup of coffee... I'd better have some ready! LOL

Well, I'd better get showered and head out the door. I'll check back in with you when I return!

Have a great day Westie Fans!

Hi Westie Team!

I'm late again! But I have a good excuse this time. Buddy and I went for a walk first thing this morning! It was so beautiful outside, with the dew on all the plants and the quiet in the neighborhood.

Buddy was cute last night. I have an old pair of tennies sitting outside on the deck. One by one the tennies showed up in the living room next to where I was sitting. When both tennies were there Buddy was sitting just staring at me. I could feel those mental vibes... "Walk! Walk! Walk!" I looked at him and said, "OK I get the hint... first thing in the morning!" Believe it or not.. I think he remembered that I made that promise! So off we went... and it was SO GOOD! I wondered why I wasn't doing this EVERY DAY!

Well, what have you and your little pups been up to?

Hugs,
Becky

Good Morning Westie Fans!

It's raining here again this morning in N. Calif. I'm not complaining though... we really, REALLY need the rain. At least we don't have any thunder and lightening like you're having, Beth.

I skipped my workout yesterday so I'm feeling like I'd better get myself 'to it' now this morning. LOL

Coffee's on... and the fire is going in the fireplace. Sit down and let's chat.

Sparking!
Becky

Good Morning Westie Fans Hope you are all staying dry. I woke up to a very bad thunderstorm (as if we needed more rain) took over and hour to convince Bella it was ok to go outside to potty but I guess I don't blame her with the thunder and lightening and all I wasn't so sure myself. It is going to be a long travel day, I just hope it isn't raining in Texas. I am glad that I joined the gym though so I have a place to exercise inside.
Well I hope you all enjoy your day and I am off to get ready to get in the car and go. Have a great day and stay safe and dry.

Buddy and I are back from the vet's and all went well. He had his Bordello vaccination and a blood test for heart worms & Lyme's disease... all was negative. Then he got his pedicure. It's been hard for me to trim his nails alone so it was worth paying someone else to do it. Buddy felt so good that when he got home he went 'ripping' around the living room like it was a race track! LOL

This has been such a great team! There are only a few of us but we have been doing so good in the challenges. Total points earned so far in the Ghostly Challenge - 1156!! WooHoo!

Sorry I haven't been very good about checking in here lately I have been doing the Ghostly Challenge and keeping up with the Hawaii Challenge but I have been staying pretty busy with fitness challenges and trying to keep up with -you guessed it - the flooding and leaks in my house. We have also had quite a few power outages and then the tornadoes that I had to abandon the house for. I have also been busy trying to get ready for my trip to Dallas which I leave for tomorrow and I am still not ready for Bella is going and we will be gone until Sunday. Staying in a motel for 4 days so it will be a unique experience and takes a lot of preparation. I am taking an old laptop of my daughters that may or may not work so I hope I can still post.

Lisa bless your heart I am going to keep you in my prayers and especially say one for your brother for coming to your rescue. I hope things keep looking up for you.

I hope all went well with Buddy's visit. I will check back if I can. I only lost .8 of a pound after all that exercise (3 hours and 5 min) yesterday, but at least I did finally break that plateau.

Hope you all have a great weekend. I have my 5K this weekend so I hope it comes off without a hitch and I also hope the rain stops in time.

Talk to you all later.

Good Morning Westie Fans!

Holy Schmoly Lisa! You have really been having "it" happen to you! So sorry. Just hang in there and rest. We are so glad the you had the energy to check in with us to let us know what's been going on with you.

Beth, how have you been? What about all your flooding and leaks? Did everything finally get under control?

Julie, Scarlett & Maureen, we haven't heard from you for awhile. Are you all doing well?

It's been raining cats & dogs here the last 24 hours. I just checked the rain gauge and we got 2 inches here at the house. I heard there were some places higher up that got as much as 15"!! YIKES! Now that was some rain!

I have to get dressed. Buddy has an appt this morning for his Bordello vaccination, heart worm test and his nails trimmed this morning in about an hour. I will check back in when I return and let you know how it went.

Hugs to you all, and keep that SPARK burning!
Becky

Okay my last week has been just awful....first, I want to let all know prayers and thoughts have been with you all. I may not be able to adress each of you individually but I miss you all.

Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday I had the dang flu! I hate getting so sick. I couldn't do much of anything but stay in bed. Then to put the icing on the cake my computer died...I mean completely dead...no means of resurrection! So I was without a computer for 2 days, them bless my brothers soul knowing I live on the computer is letting me borrow/use his laptop till we can afford me a new one...which wont be till Tax return time. So now I am finally online.

Monday was a LONG day, Brians appointment with the Educational Specialist. Left Tomah at 7:30am, they take him back for testing at 9am till 12pm....They were going to stop at 11 but he worked so hard and wanted to finish! I am so proud of him at the willingness he showed them. We ate lunch in the cafeteria since it was snowing outside and we really didnt want to get lost since we had to be back by 1. We continued on with the testing from 1 to 3:30. Finally then the staffing meeting, Finally answers of some kind coming my way. The results are mind boggling, I am having trouble getting my mind around it all. There is so much. What was he given well......Attention Deficit Disorder, Non-Verbal Learning Disorder, Decreased Postural Control, Sensory Integration Difficulties, and to confirm or rule out Anxiety Disorder. Like I said a lot to take in all at once and with all the reccomindations. He will need to see the child phycologist once every 2 to 3 weeks for the next 3 months, he also needs to see a nero pediatritian for his ADD and possible medications for that, then 2 or 3 appointments with Occupational Therapy for his muscles in his back...I never thought that he even had a problem there but it is the reason he slouches so much he literally can not help it...he has no muscle there. His flexability and weird sleeping positions actuall is something to worry about...who knew. We have so much to learn and use techniques to help him learn to cope. I am so stressed right now and feel just drained but yet relieve in a way that we now have some answers now just to learn it all.

I still feel so drained today....I am so tired and I am so overwhelmed right now trying to take in so much new information. I wish I had the energy to exercise or even take Shorty for a walk but right now I think my mind is still trying to take in everything....I am going to give myself a few more days...I think I am not going to push to hard right now...I need time to gather my thoughts...I need to find a support group or something.

Well I am doing laundry today so time for more coffee and maybe a nap.

Good Morning Team!
Yes, we have rain this morning. This is our first rain for the season and well needed.

I was up about 5am this morning. DD Kristen was staying with us last night while her husband is gone hunting in Idaho. She got up early to get to the gym before going off to work. She belongs to a Spinning Class.

I became inspired to get my breakfast early and hit the bike too this morning. I just finished 72 min spinning for 18.2 miles. It feels so good to get it done first thing.

The storm is really starting to brew. We are expected to receive winds up to 60 mph today. It's cold and the snow is dropping low.

I think I'd better hop in the shower before power failure or something like that happens.

Stop by and tell the Team what's happening in your neck of the woods!

Keep Sparking!
Becky

Good Morning Westie Fans!

I'm late again checking in with you. It's 8:45 here in N.Calif. There's a huge storm off shore that is coming in. Winds are supposed to be 60 mph. I just spent the early morning rolling up all my outside canvas blinds, stacking my patio chairs, taking down the wind chimes, and putting the plants under the eaves of the house. I still have a 7' potted Ficus tree to move... I think I will bring it in until the storm passes. The last time we had a storm like this it beat up the Ficus so badly that it has just now recovered.

DD-Kristen is coming to stay with us tonight after she gets off work. Her husband went hunting in Idaho and won't be home until Wednesday. Kristen is expecting her first child in March and we are all very excited. This will make grandchild #10 for DH and I. My sister and I were sure she was having a boy because she was so sick the first 3 months... but the last ultrasound seems to confirm we are having another granddaughter. (2 boys & 8 girls!)

Buddy is going to get a bath this morning and the scissors are coming out to trim around his toes, ears and eyes. His coat is getting pretty long, but I think I will just leave him for a while. The colder weather is coming and he should be fine.

My sister, Mom & I are heading to St. Louis, MO. on November 6th for a family reunion. My dad (deceased)was from St. Lou, and his sister still lives there. It should be fun. Only staying for a weekend.

I guess I'd better get my "act in gear" and get something done. The morning is getting away from me quickly.

You can still jump into the Ghostly Challenge & the Island Hopping Challenge at any time. We slipped in the Spark People Leaderboard rankings, Spark Points are down from 31 to 45 and the Spark Fitness Points from 35 to 41. Still all in all we are doing really great for the number of us on the Team! So keep up the good work. It's a WIN-WIN!! We are still #1 in my eyes!

Hugs
Becky

Good Morning Team,

Whew! Last night after dinner I suddenly felt 'hot' and like I was getting sick with a sore throat! I was running a low temp. I took some ibuprofen, vitamin C and went to bed. I think it was probably about 7:00!

I think I feel better this morning. Not too sure I just got up. That was 12 hours in bed!!

Well I see that the Cardinals lost. I'm sooo sad. I like that team. I don't really have a favorite team anymore. When I lived in S.Cal the Dodgers got my "rooting", but now... I like them all. (Well, there are a few I DON'T like... LOL)

I hear the coffee beeping that it's done. Stop by and have a cup or two with me and tell me what you are doing.

Keep that Spark Burning!
Becky

That's an adorable picture of Buddy. Did he have fun on the lake?

The Cardinals lost and are now out of it, so I won't be going to a ballgame tomorrow, oh well. I'll have to find something else to do. Maybe shopping, lol. I really need to clean house. Everyone have a great Sunday.

Good Morning Westie Fans!~

I have been MIA these past couple of days, and I apologize! Life happened! There was actually one day that I didn't turn on the computer until right before going to bed. I feel like I've been away for a month!

One of our daughters showed up unannounced to stay for a visit with us for a couple days. We hadn't seen her for almost 4 months. We had a wonderful time visiting and finally going out on the lake for a relaxing day bobbing around on the water. It was Buddy's first time on the boat. I posted a picture of him on my page. He still needed his life jacket adjusted in front, but it was such a cute picture I couldn't resist.

Well the coffee is finished brewing and it is wafting lovely 'come-hither' smells to me. Stop by and join me in a cup.

Sparking BIG HUGS your way!
Becky

Becky,
Can't wait to see those pictures. I took Bella in for her heartworm and worm check tests today at 10 and she got a haircut so she feels like she has been violated in every possible way she is sulking on the couch now (she was happy to get out of the house though because f the tornado and no power from earlier this morning).
I may not be losing much weight for the team ,but I am getting some good log in points to add up for the team I have hit 20 log in points 4 days in a row (too bad I don't have a trip scheduled to Las Vegas -lol). I hope everyone is having a great day and ready for a wonderful weekend. We are having flooding and had a tornado come thru this morning at 9 am so I was without power until just now so I thought I would post while I could.
Well it looks like another storm is here so I better get off.
Love to you all and keep safe.
Beth and Bella.

Hi Everyone!

We just got back from spending a day on the lake. It was beautiful. It was Buddy's first time in the boat and with his life jacket. He wasn't so sure when I kept telling him, "This is FUN Buddy!" I could read his mind saying, "IF this is what FUN is... I don't want any part of it!" LOL

He actually did pretty good. It's way too cold to get in the water and the lake is low, so we just cruised around. I took some pictures, but haven't looked at them. I'll see what there is to post.

Well, it's our dinner time so I'd better get figuring what to feed DH.

Hugs Team!
Becky

Hi everyone I know it's not morning but I just wanted to check in and see how everyone is doing. I am finally home from the hospital (kept me a little longer than anticipated) but the tests are finally over so I should be able to get back on a regular schedule. Bella really missed me as did I her. She is staying really close and not letting me leave her sight. I missed talking to all of you and hope you are having a great day and getting ready for a fantastic weekend. Give your doggies an extra hug for me and I will check back in tomorrow.

Good Morning Team!

Well, I'm up at 6:30! I don't know what happened to my usual 5:30... must have something to do with it still being dark outside! LOL The sun is just now peeking up over the hills. We actually might get some rain next week. I can only hope. Its been so dry here.

Buddy has an appointment for his Bordello shot & heart worm test tomorrow at 9:30. While he's there I'm going to have the Tech's cut his nails. It is so hard for me to do alone.

We are expecting company tonight who will be staying over. So because of the company and Buddy's appt tomorrow I'm not sure how much time I will have to check in with you tomorrow morning. But I know you know where the coffee is and you can just pop in and help yourself to a good morning chat in my absence. LOL

My cream of wheat is ready, so I'll check in later.

Keep that Spark Burning!

Got up early, left early got to La Crosse on time and to Brian's appointments, 2 of them , Stopped at Wendy's on the way home. Got half way home and was so tired decided to stop by Sparta Walmart....its on the way, just to wake up a bit. It rainy and cold and gloomy today so no burst of energy there. Finally got home at 2:50.....left at 7am. I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO tired right now...I am hoping this makes some sense. Shorty didnt get his walk today but with it being wet and cold maybe that is a good thing. Just waiting for Jessica to get home then it is off to get daddy from work since I have the car today...I so want to change into comfies and curl up in bed! May do that when I get home for the second time.

Hi Team!

I know... I know... It's not morning anymore. I am late, late, late! Yesterday we watched the 3 granddaughters until late, and it's a long story, but they totally wear me out. I don't know how much longer I can do this.

After they left I tried to relax with DH and watch some TV but quickly found myself wanting to go to bed. I slept like a log and I've had a very hard time getting my MOJO running so far today! LOL

I think I will run to Wally-world this morning and take a look around. There really isn't anything that I need except to get out of the house for a while. Then I will stop at the market and pick up a few fruits and veggies.

I'm sure everyone is already out doing their "thing" today because it's late! So I will try to do better tomorrow!

Hugs to all,
Becky

Good Morning Westie Fans!

Sun is up and it's starting out to be a beautiful day! Finally cooler weather has arrived.

As I sit here I am looking down at Buddy and thinking, "Should I give him a haircut, or just let it grow?" He really needs a trim, but then the cold weather is right around the corner. Hmmm... the jury is still out on that question that is soon to be answered. LOL

I've got a busy day ahead today, and kids to watch tonight. So I'd better get my act into gear and get my day started, but I will always have time to sit for a minute and visit with my Sparky Friends. Have a cup of coffee and tell us how you are.

Throwing big Sparky Hugs your way!

Good morning A quick stop in this morning today is family day at our house. Spend time with the kids and such. Today supposedly was a 5k walk and I Didnt know about it... emoticon , I think it would have been fun. Oh well. Well didnt get up this morning till 10am! It is gloomy and wet and just well yucky out today one of those days rather stay in bed. Shorty didnt even want to stay out either, so no walk today I am guessing, I think I will do Leslie walk today.

Becky those gifts sound wonderful...now if I could only get my mom, dad, brother and sister to get that!

Beth...have fun today!

Good Morning Westie Fans!

It's a beautiful day outside here in No. California! I slept in until 8:15 this morning!! YIKES!! I probably would still be in bed if it hadn't been for Buddy telling me to get up! LOL

We had a lovely dinner and party last night over at our son's house. They fixed Tri-tip on the BBQ with corn on the cob, a broccoli salad, watermelon & an apple pie with vanilla ice cream for dessert. I ate but really watched my portions. I know I went over on the calories, but I'm back on track this morning.

The kids knew that I've been trying to workout and lose weight, so when I gave them hints of what I wanted for my BD they obliged. I received 2 new Spinning CD's (volume 10 & 13), a Pilates/Yoga mat, a new pair of dumbbells (might be too light), and a 5 pound Fitness Ball. I also got some lovely smelling candles which were needed.

Well, we promised we would go to the girls soccer game this morning. It starts in about 40 minutes and I haven't showered yet. So I'd better say "Adios amigos" ... sounds like we are all busy with events this weekend.

Take care of yourselves and always put YOUR priorities to get healthy above all the rest.

Keep Sparking!

Good Morning,
Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I went out for a walk this morning later than usual and it was already very warm was not dressed for it so got a little overheated.
I am going to my daughter's football game tonight, it is family day at the college so it will be a long day.
I am getting excited and anxious it is less than two weeks until my 5K Walk in Dallas.
Well I'm off to get ready to leave for the school. Have a great day everyone.

Good Morning!

I going to have to make this quick because DH has a doctor's appt in about 30 minutes, but I did want to check in with everyone to say my "Good Morning!"

We were up late last night celebrating with DD and slept in this morning. The actual party celebration is tonight.

So glad to see you are all here huddled together and sharing your day.

Coffee's on! Help yourselves to a cup!

Hugs,
Becky

Good morning everyone. Another very nice fall morning. Shorty and I took an extra long walk...2.67 miles but it was lovely. Today is laundry day again....sheesh seems like I just did it! I did weigh in today and another .4lbs gone...I know turtle speed but the inches are still coming off so that mean the toning is working as well...more than likely gaining muscle instead! I am a little run down today so I may do my DVD's this afternoon but I wont feel to bad if I dont get to them I had 3 heavy workout days this week so far and 5 morning walks with Shorty.

Well off to enjoy another cup of coffee and start some chili in the crockpot for dinner the next few nights.

Good morning ladies,
Just got back from a walk in a very cool sunny morning (yay!). It was nice to see the sun after the storm we had here last night, what was even nicer though was not having to wake up and mop around the atrium after the storm (no leaking inside - double yay!)
Well I am off to work on my October Challenge, have a blessed day everyone. Becky hope you are not too tired after excess birthday celebration yesterday - lol.

Here I am checking in late at night instead of early in the morning again. Hope you had a great birthday Becky sorry I couldn't hold out until after midnight last night before sending you your birthday greetings, but I am glad I sent them last night instead of waiting until today since I almost missed the whole day today, it has been a really busy day, but at least it's over (well only 1 hour left) and then tomorrow is another day. Well I better go take my MS shot and get in bed if I plan to get up and walk in the morning, however, right now we are having a really bad lightning and thunderstorm so I may have to find alternate plans. Have a great rest of your birthday night if you are still up.
Hope everyone else had a great day too. Looks like a few of us are off and running in the GHOST challenge and sorry I forgot to log in my Hawaii miles, but I have caught up now.

Thank you for the birthday wish, Lisa!

Wow Lisa, you go, burning up those fitness minutes!!!

I am sitting here with a towel on my head just checking in after taking my shower. I too like to be all prettied up even to clean the house. Everytime I haven't pulled myself together... SOMEONE SHOWS UP! LOL So, it's off to finish the job.

I'll talk @ you guy later!

Hugs,
Becky

Good Morning Team!

Yes, I'm late checking in this morning. I was up bright and early ... about 5:30.. still pitch black outside. I took the Bud out for his morning jaunt and met up with my neighbor from across the street who was doing the same thing with her Schnauzers. We chit-chatted for awhile then I headed back into the house.

I fixed a bowl of cream of wheat and sat watching "Cash Cab" for about an hour. I knew that I didn't want to let the day get away without my morning spin, so I just finished my 56 min on the bike.

Today is my birthday [and DH]. We will just be staying home today... tomorrow evening some of our kids have planned a birthday dinner for us at our son's house. Should be fun.

So... Teamies! Sit down and visit a while. Enjoy a cup of coffee and have a piece of Birthday cake with me. Just a little sliver... we can't go crazy with those calories!! LOL

Have I told you that you are the BEST team I have known? I just want you to know how much I care about all of you. HUG!!

Well, I'd better go shower.

Keeping that Spark Burning!
Becky

LOL Beth! That Bella is quite a character. She won't wear her hat if you don't! LOL LOL

And LISA! I did kickboxing with SP Nicole and almost died the next day! It really is a workout. So no wonder you are sore! Take a rest today, but get back to your workout tomorrow... maybe not so hard!

As for the winter walks, I bet that Shorty would enjoy them. I saw pictures of Maureen's little doggys out romping around in the snow. Maybe Maureen will have some tips about Winter walks.

Good morning everyone...well we actually reached below freezing temps last nite...it was 27 degrees this morning at 7am so to say the least Shorty and My walk was a little shorter. He loved romping through the grass on the frozen dew on the ground....guessing he couldnt figure it out. But since he was getting wet I didnt want him getting to cold either. I dont know how we are going to do this winter for walks...last winter was odd for us. He stayed in his kennel out in my parents garage and I would let him out 3 or 4 times a day for only 5 to 10 min at a time...no walks! It was to darn cold, and I was battling depression as well. I know he didnt like it cause he was lonely out there, but my mother doesnt allow pets in her house...thank GOD that we are finally in our own home. I have come to enjoy our long walks every morning but as it gets colder I may have to move the walk to whenever the warmest part of the day is but yet before everyone gets home from school and work.

Beth...oh such an adorable picture!

Today didnt do much of a workout...my body aches today for some odd reason...lol...may have burned to much the past two days but I did get some cleaning done and of course my walk with Shorty. I also moved some more boxes around and hung stuff up on the wall...why does it seem like it takes forever to get settled into a new home but only hours to empty one.../sigh....I think I will be unpacking for months.

Good morning,
How is everyone on this beautiful Wednesday last day of Septemenber? Good thing I am not still in school I and taking Spelling or typing classes today I can't seem to do either very well today.
It is cool here and dark later in the morning too, forcing me to walk a little later each morning (I'm not scared of the cemetery just wouldn't want to be there alone in the dark -lol).
I tried a Billy Blanks kickboxing video and thought I was going to die so I can only imagine the great workout you would get from a 50 min kickboxing video (I will have to imagine because I didn't make it through the first 30 minutes of mine before having to stop-lol).
I hope everyone has a blessed day. I am meeting two old friends of mine from High School today for lunch, they want to meet at an Italian restaurant so please pray for me that I will make good choices.
I am looking forward to a Ghostly challenge and a great October.

Thanks for the comment on the picture of Bella and me in our witch hats, she will wear hers as long as I have mine on, but the minute mine comes off so does hers. She loves the dress though, she just doesn't like things on her head.

Beth emoticon

GOOD Morning Westie Fans!!

It is a good morning too. I was up at 5:30 and believe me... it is DARK! The days are really getting shorter. That is a sure sign that fall has arrived and winter is just around the corner.
emoticon
We have another one of our Teamies return to us. Jani-Lou! Welcome back!! We have missed you here.
emoticon
Maureen, we are go glad to have you back home safely. It sounds like you had a great time with your sister and your dad. Tell us a little about what you did while you were there.
emoticon
Beth, I love the new profile photo of you and Bella! A couple of witches! Ooooo! Yes, looks like you both are ready for October Ghostly Challenge!
emoticon
Lisa, You are burning up those fat calories with NetFlix! What a great tool for you! A 50 minute workout is a LONG workout! Believe me, I know! That is how long my spinning workout goes and when I'm finished I have rubber legs! LOL ... But Kickboxing and the "Buns & Thighs" thing... Yikes! Good job!! You really are a true inspiration!
emoticon
Julie & Scarlett, What have you both been up to?

Well the morning is getting on. I need to eat something before my spinning workout. So stop in and have a quick cup of coffee and a chat with me before I ramble off on down the hall to my workout room.

Keep that Spark Burning!
Becky

Hi Beth,

I know how you must feel about the sleep apnea thing. I have a friend in Oregon that went through that, and if it's any consolation... she says it's the best thing she ever did for herself. She wakes feeling rested finally. I'm not sure what her husband thinks about it, but she feels better.

It is wonderful how our dogs love us so much. Bella will be fine one night without you. Think of it this way... you are making the years better for you and her!

BIG HUGS!
Becky

Good afternoon everyone,
Sounds like you are all enjoying cool weather today. It was cooler today here too. I was sort of bumbed out by my doctor's visit yesterday and am trying to get out of the funk it put me in. (I guess those words dated me don't they). The heart doctor was not happy with my test results and I then he also wanted me to follow through with getting started on the CPAP machine for Sleep Apnea. I don't know wabout you but the thought of sleeping with something on my face every night does not thrill me so I have been putting it off for a while. He seems to think that it is one of the reasons why I am having so much trouble with the congestive heart failure so I will give it a try. I also have to go back and check in to the hospital overnight next Tuesday for CPAP fitting and some other tests (I hate hospitals), but more importantly I don't want to have to leave Bella. She was so excited when I got home late last night and just loved all over me. It's so nice to have that unconditional love that you can only get from a loving dog.
I hope everyone has a great rest of the day.
Beth

Good Morning Lisa!

Those DVD's sound great! We have cable and there are exercise channels that we can choose from. I've used them before and they are great!
emoticon
Enjoy your tea. That sounds good!

I just finished spinning for 56 minutes and heading for the shower. I thought I would check in on everyone before getting cleaned up.

I thought we weren't going to have to pick up the girls this afternoon and had things laid out in my mind that I wanted to do... but just found out that DD needs us to get them after school again. DARN! I am too used to my "alone time"... sigh!

Guess I will need to head off to the grocery store and get milk and veggies. I forgot how much food little ones can eat!! LOL

Keep that Spark Burning! This is a GREAT TEAM!

Good morning...and yes it is crisp and cool here today as well...its nearly noon and 50degrees. Shorty and my walk this morning was in 43degrees and actually quite refreshing.

Have I said how much I am enjoying Netflix?! We just signed up and get one DVD sent to the house at a time BUT...There are some you can watch right on your computer unlimited! Guess what I found...exercise DVD's that I can play right from here!Not granted they are older ones but I have found a whole set on 10 min stuff that I LOVE!! There is like 5 diffrent segments on each DVD 10 min each so you can do the whole thing or just a section. Me I like to pick and choose by my mood.

Today this morning after our walk I did, Did Netflix DVD for Arm burn 10 min, Did Netflix DVD for Ab burn 10min, Did Another Netflix DVD for yoga Buns and Thighs burn 10 min, Did 3rd DVD Dance off Carb burn section 10 min, DVD Kickboxing Basics 10 min....I know it looks like a lot but it was only 50 min! And boy do my muscles FEEL it!

After that I hit the shower...why oh why does hot water not last long enough for 1 shower!....may have to have the landlord check out the hot water heater.

Now I am resting for the rest of the day...playing on the computer and such till the kids get home at 3.

I am enjoying my second cup of coffee and will be switching over to hot mint green tea in a bit. Everyone have a wonderful day!

Good Tuesday Morning Westie Fans!

It's a BEAU-TI-FUL day outside today in No. Calif.!! Finally the weather has cooled. There are clouds on the sky and when I took Buddy out for his morning jaunt around the yard I actually felt mist on my arms! Fall has arrived....FINALLY!
emoticon
So sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea with me while we sit out on the deck and enjoy this cool weather. Share with us what you are planning today, and what you did yesterday. Beth, we are all anxious to hear how yesterday went with your doctor.

Let's keep this Spark Burning!

Good Morning Westie Fans! Yes, it's still morning here in "Sunny Hot No. Calif."

LOL Lisa! I stopped by this morning and was going to write my usual 'Welcome'... got side tracked... did my Spinning for 60 min, and now here I finally am!! My brain just left me. I thought I had checked in with everyone. Probably because I posted the Island Hopping totals I figured I was done! LOL

Anyway.. It's almost lunch time here. We are supposed to get rain tomorrow!! OH I can hardly wait! We sure do need rain here.

Looks like everyone is getting their workouts in early, and that's good. Get 'er done! LOL Once you get the workouts done, don't you feel so much better?

Beth, what a long drive you have to get to the doctor. Sounds like you are going to have a really full day. We are waiting to hear what your doctor has to say. It looks to me like you feel 100% better! Poor Bella. I bet she misses you when you are gone for so long. Hugs Bella!

Julie! Way to go with the miles! You are doing fantastic. I got them added with the team's totals. Your efforts have really helped us as a team to creep up that Spark People's Leaderboard!

Maureen should be back from her 'daughter duties'. I hope she had a nice time while there with her dad for the weekend.

We haven't heard from Scarlett lately. I sure hope Scarlett is doing well, and I want you to know you are missed.

Well, I better get busy taking care of DH and making some lunch. I think we will just share a turkey sandwich with a 1/2 pear. Then I need to think about what am I going to feed my 3 DGD's this afternoon for dinner. We are going to have them everyday except Tuesday this week. That is going to really tax my meal planning skills. LOL

Keep that Spark! You are the Best!

Boy I sure cant seem to get here in the morning well good afternoon to all of you. I went with Shorty for our walk this morning despite the cold weather that has finally blown in. It was a very CRISP 55degrees this morning with 25 mile an hour north/north westerly wind. Needless to say I had on two sweaters my ear headband and gloves. But we did it and Shorty loved it...I think he loves the cold to a certain point. After that I finally finished putting away my laundry from Friday. Vacumming was in order for today and so was Swiffering all my exposed tile....half my house is that way except for where we just bought rugs for...we plan on getting a huge one for the living room, its just to cold in the winter to have bare floors. I also did my workouts early too....I was so bad at eating yesterday...we got pizza from Pizza hut..../sigh....but it was so good...just have to work a little harder this week since we have leftovers to and cant let money (food) go to waste...without it going to my waist. 10 min of Yoga burn, 10 min dance simple slimmer, 10 min Thigh burn, 10 min Ab burn.....I sure hope that will be enough for now...my legs are SCREAMING for mercy...lol.

Well off to get another warm cup...I have my windows open airing out the house with the nice cool breeze and FINALLY have gotten our living room to budge below 80degrees(its at 70.6)....which really isn't as bad as it sounds but the fans are actually off position which they haven't been since we moved in, in August....lol.

Beth....you be safe today and hear from you when you get back...hope all goes well

Becky hope all is going well...havent seen(heard) from you this morning!

Good morning everyone,
Hope everyone is prepared for a great Monday. I got up at 3:30 this morning with enough time to fit my cardio in before I leave on my trip to the heart doctor in Little Rock. It was not my intent to get up that early ,since I have a 3.5 hour trip there and then get to sit in the office for Mom's appointment at 11:15 and then my appointment at 1:15 and then make the 3.5 hour trip back after running some errands she wants to do, I was hoping for a little more rest before I went. But as usual when I have a trip to go on whether I am looking forward to it or not, I can't sleep. So I lay in bed for a while, then finally decided to get up and do something constructive.

Congratulations team on the great standings, that's pretty good considering there were only like 6 (I think) people even logging in Fitness Points at all. For a small team, we pack a big punch of motivation.

Congratulations to all that are doing the Hawaiian Island hoping challenge, we are all making great strides there (no pun intended).

Well I guess I better get busy and get ready to leave, it's almost 6am and I need to make sure Bella is squared away for my long absence.

Take care and have a great day!

Good Morning Westie Fans!!

It's Sunday, and the sun has not yet peeked over the hills here in sunny California!

I had some mosquito bites on my ankle that woke me early. After I got up to put Calamine lotion on them I was wide awake!

I'm doing some Sparking before the DH wakes. Spark People has a new book and you can get 1000 points if you pre-order, so I did that this morning.

I also, wanted to check on our Spark Points to see how we are doing as a team in the standings. WE ARE DOING FANTASTIC!!

emoticon
Team Leaderboard:
Spark Point 47th!
Spark Fitness 44th!!

Look how much we have moved in the Team standings just with the effort of a few. Just think how far we could go if we had more team members helping us along the way! I know we could be up in the Top Ten!
emoticon emoticon emoticon
Look for mail today announcing how the next Spark Points Challenge will work for the month of October. This new challenge will help us gather up more of those Spark Points!!
emoticon emoticon emoticon

emoticon emoticon emoticon
We will still continue our walk around the Islands with our Island Hopping Challenge for our Fitness points. I will give everyone enough time to get your posting in on your miles before I tally them up and announce this weeks Goodie Winner!! At that time I will also let you know how far we've gone around the Island of Oahu. We should be just about ready to take on the Big Island of Hawaii!
emoticon emoticon emoticon

Come on in and sit down and let's visit!

Good morning all...well afternoon now...lol. I finally got to this team after many messages in my box. I hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday

I did finish with the washing and drying but the folding and putting away I haven't finished yet...have the towels to fold and need to put away mine and my hubbies clothes....kids put theirs away for me. Becky I hate when that happens...wont happen to me anymore cause I share the 1 washer and 1 drier with 3 other apartments so it prevents me from leaving stuff in there.

This is a lazy weekend for me stupid TOM weekend so wont feel like doing much exercise myself.

I am having my coffee and just going to sit and watch some TV and play on the computer.

Good Morning Westie Fans!

It's a beautiful day here, also, but it's supposed to be another scorcher! EEEWWW.

I got up before the sun also this morning and did a load of laundry. I realize though I will have to do one over again. I left a load in the washer yesterday, and when I dried them they smell sour. I hate when that happens!

I was able to get my spinning in this morning. It's been three days since I have worked out. After the last episode of feeling weak I just didn't want to ride the bike. I did OK today. I must have just been coming down with something.

Coffee's on, and the water is boiling for tea. Cream of Wheat is on the menu for breakfast this morning with a cinnamon bagel & cream cheese. So stop by, sit down and stay awhile. Share with us what you have planned for today and this weekend.

Have a great day and a wonderful weekend.

Becky

Good morning everyone,
It is a beautiful sunny day today so far. I got up at 5am and waited until it was light enough to go walk. Went ahead and started washing my sheets and mattress pad, blanket and bedspread. Cleaned kitchen after fixing breakfast and then it was time for a walk.
Walked 3.5 so far today in the cemetery (Bella not allowed to go in so I will take her to the park later for our walk).
I am feeling much better today, but Bella doesn't seem to be feeling very good.
Lisa- congratulations on your weight loss this week.
Hope you all have a great day.
Beth

Good Morning Sparkies!!

I am really late this morning, or in most cases... afternoon to you! It's 10:30 here! It seems like the day is 1/2 gone already! Every time I have the DGDs over for dinner and to watch until their mom comes home, I am totally exhausted the next morning. This is why God wanted us to have our children when we are young. LOL When we get "old" it is HARD!

Don't know quite what I am going to be like next week... DD gave us she and her husband's working schedule for next week and they need us to pick up the girls from school everyday except Tuesday!! YIKES! I jokingly said to DH, "Hey, aren't we going to be out of town and on vacation next week?" LOL

Buddy enjoys having the kids over so I guess it's all worth it. ALTHOUGH Kenzie yelled at Buddy when she came in yesterday. I scolded her... "We don't EVER yell at Buddy!" They have an 'out of control' Australian Shepherd and I'm sure she is hearing a lot of yelling at the poor dog by my SIL. This is not the way to get results.

Beth, I hope your doctor appt goes well. I am so sorry to hear that you were not feeling well last night. Good timing since you had a dr. appt. already scheduled.

Lisa, did you get all your laundry finished? I did a couple loads this morning also. What's the reason for the schools to be closed today? Now a days the schools seem to be closed a lot more than they were when I was a kid. Hope your rain stops so you and the family can get out for a walk. I wish both you and Beth could send some of that rain my way.

Maureen is off doing daughter duties for her dad this weekend so we probably won't be hearing much from her. She and I have been working some kinks out of a new challenge that will help us gather up points for the team.

We wish we could get the other team members active again, or gather up new ones. I know we could make this one of the best "Dog Category" Teams on Spark with a little effort. We've got a good start. You are the BEST, and we really appreciate you!!

Take care teamies and keep that Spark burning!
Becky

Our morning is perfect too, raining a little and nice and cool...ahh that fall like weather that I love so much. I am unable to take advantage of it too, kids dont have school today, and with the rain I cant see getting them soaked...but I will see after hubby gets home to get Shorty out...he loves the rain.

I am sorry your sick Beth,I hope your appointment goes well.

I have already started laundry and supper in the crock...so should be a nice relaxing day.

Good morning everyone,
The rain has subsided and I even see a little blue in the sky in some places. It is cool and would make perfect walking weather, unfortunatley, I go sick at about 6pm last night and was not able to take advantage of this perfect morning. I don't know how you can tell the difference between food poisioning and a stomach virus, but maybe the doctor can figure it out when I go at 10:20 for a recheck on CHF this morning. This is just another one of those temporary bumps in the road, but it too shall pass (the good news is I lost a pound since yesterday, the bad news is I know that is only temporary until I can eat again -lol).
I hope everyone is set to have a positive energy, great day. I know I am determined to try.
Have a blessed day.

Good morning,
Today is another rainy day here. I went out for my regular 3.2 mile walk in the rain without Bella. She doesn't like to get wet,she thinks bath is one of those bad four letter words. After my walk the rain had stopped so I came home and took Bella to the park for another 1.2 mile 30 minute walk (she likes to take her time and sniff out everything -lol). By the time we finished it had started raining again so she was more than ready to get home.
She is now laying on the floor passed out, sound asleep. There she goes we have visitors at the door and she is announcing them to the neighborhood. SO I have to go answer the door , have a great day everyone.

Good Morning Westie Fans!

Another day!! I was just thinking about that... "another day". This month is almost over, this year is almost over! Where does the time go? Without getting too philosophical, we need to think about making each moment of everyday the best moment that we can, because time really does fly!

When I am spinning there are a couple songs that really express that feeling about "time" and being the "best" we can be. Maybe that is why that sticks in my head most all the day long. I can still remember when I was 10 and now I will soon be 65! Where did those 55 years go? SIGH!! Oh well, I won't bore you with this. It sounds like a good draft for a blog later on! LOL

Anyway, share what you will be doing with your 'moments' today! I know I will be heading to the grocery store, for tonight we have the DGDs again for dinner. I don't have a clue what to fix and DH suggested buying a pizza. So I guess I will do that. Hmmm. Never know just what I might come home with. LOL

Big 'HUGS' to everyone!
Becky

Hi Lisa & Beth!

So glad to hear from you!

Lisa, so sorry you had a headache. I used to suffer for serious migraines that once put me in the emergency room. A headache of any form is NOT fun at all. I hope your DS is doing well.

Beth, I am SO glad that you are feeling better and breathing better. The medicine must really be working! You put me to shame walking Bella like you do. I haven't been out with Buddy since the temp went sky-high! It's another scorcher here today. So I am laying low.

I haven't started house cleaning yet. I've been on the phone with my son Brett and then my sister most of the morning.

Brett's leg is doing better, the stitches are out and the healing is continuing.

It's lunch time here now. I guess I'd better hop into the kitchen and whip something up for lunch.

Keep that Spark!
Becky

Good morn-noon-ing,
That's my way of saying still morning, but almost noon here. Getting a late start on the morning wake up call, I was trying to catch up on my posts from yesterday since my machine decided to lock up on me last night.
Well today is my two month anniversary with Sparks and besides the 35.6 pounds that are gone, I can't believe what a difference my outlook on life has taken. For the first time I am looking forward to the future and all the possibilities it has to offer. I have made some great friends here at Sparks and I am so glad to be on this team where we all are able to share each others journey and challenges. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this great group.
Becky I hope you enjoy your housework today, not my idea of fun, but a necessary evil -lol. The sun is not shining here, but it is not raining right now either. I plan to go out for another walk now before lunch, already took Bella out for one. I am feeling stronger today and breathing better - praise God for that.

Hope everyone has a blessed day!
Beth

Morning! Morning! Good Morning!!

The sun beat me up and out of bed this morning! I was up about 5 to take Buddy out and then went back to bed. Feels so good!

House cleaning is on my agenda for today. As the sun is shinning through my windows I see dust lying around everywhere.

So stop in for a cup of coffee, but don't look around. Ha-ha!

Keep that Spark Burning!

Good Morning Sparkies!

I was sitting here thinking, that I'm probably the last one up on the Team, since I live on the west coast! It's probably close to your lunch time by now. LOL Well, the sun is still behind the hills here. It's 7 a.m. Days are getting shorter, but unfortunately we are still going to get the heat today.

Beth, I am so sorry you are still having to mop! Just having to mop once is bad enough... but everyday!! Atriums are sure beautiful, but they do have that reputation for leaking.

Buddy likes to lay in by the window and stare out too. I always think about Patty Pages' song "How Much is that Doggy in the Window." LOL Only Buddy is staring out the window while laying on the AC register and wondering when is it ever going to cool off!

Lisa, you did a good job on Shorty's haircut for your the first attempt. I bet he felt really good after you finished. I know Buddy always seems to be so hot. Seems like these Westies are warmer than other dogs, but it could be my imagination.

Well, the coffee's on, and if you want tea the water it hot. Beth is already sitting here chatting, so come on everyone, sit down and join us.

Keep that Spark Burning!
Becky

Good morning everyone,
It is a beautiful rainy morning today - was raining too hard to go out for a walk with Bella this morning she is just sitting at the window looking out wondering what happened she looks so pitiful -lol.
The repairman came to fix my atrium yesterday, the only problem is he spent the whole day "contemplating" how he would fix it and didn't actually start doing it so I am mopping water out of my house again today. Good exercise though, but I didn't need the practice - I think I have the mopping down after the last two weeks of daily rains.
I hope everyone who needs rain is getting some today.
Today is the first day of fall how is the weather where you are?
Have a great day everyone. Sorry I rambled on and on this morning.

Hello everyone,
It's not that I don't like the rain, I love rain, but 9 days straight of it and alot of it in the house instead of out was a bit much-lol. The repairman was here this morning to "work" on repairing the leak. He took more breaks than work, so far after 3 hours he has cleaned out the gutters and now has gone for a lunch break supposed to be back in 2-3 hours. Oh well at least I'm not having to pay him by the hour that bill goes to the landlord that hired him because he was the cheapest!

I tried a hula-hoop recently had the same result kept falling down, but you're right it was a great workout just trying to keep it up.

Love the haircut. How did the pedipaw work out? Bella has some kind of fetish with her feet and will not let me get near them (she had a bad experience with a groomer when she had her first cut), she is very laid back and docile until you try to clip her nails or hold her feet like you are going to trim her nails then she growls and snips, never has bitten but don't want to give her the opportunity either. I tell her bad dogs bite and she reluctantly puts her hand back up in mine, but she is terrified of the pedipaw.

The stationary bike is a mystery to her as well, she watches intently when I ride, then when I get off she goes over and starts pushing the peddles with her nose. (I wonder if I can train her to ride -lol) I don't have a treadmill so I haven't tried that, but Bella is afraid of everything noisy and that moves faster than her - it probably wouldn't work out well with her.

Hope your appointments with your son go well and your nervous stomach calms down, good thing Shorty likes to run in the yard - gotta love those none demanding dogs.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning all...well I did it...I gave Shorty his first haircut...and I must say it went fairly well. I have posted some before and after pictures and my profile picture is an after. I know its not perfect...he wouldnt let me get between his hind legs not that I dont understand but at least he feels somewhat better without all that hair dragging on him. He seems to have a lot more spunk. We also had a bath afterward...just to make sure no loose hairs were left since daughter has asthma. I did notice he has VERY pink skin and sensitive on his back. I noticed the brush was making it raw so I put some peroxide on it one to help whitten and two to make sure no infection gets on the skin. Well at least he stays looking like he was recently brushed for more than 5 min.

Now I need to get paperwork together for my son's appointment tomorrow...I more than likely wont be on till late afternoon. We have to leave here by 6:30 to get to La Crosse (45 min to hour) by 8am sharp...cant be late. He has Appointment with Occupational Therapist first then Clinical Psychologist so we begin. I am so nervous even with the anxiety meds its hard.

I have had 2 cups of coffee this morning. Shorty didnt get his walk today because of my nervous stomach I cant be to far from the house...hate it. But I hope to get in some aerobic in short bursts today. I did let Shorty run wild in the small yard we have on his 10ft leash....he likes that just as much. And tomorrow it will have to wait till I get home, if its not raining...its suppose to finally after on 1 short downpoar this month

Okay I will talk to you wonderful ones later

Hula hoops are awesome....and a great workout....just make sure your westie doesnt think its his you will never get it back....lol.

Good Morning Sparkies!!

I'm up before the sun this morning! WooHoo! It's a funny day out so far. There's a warm wind blowing. Nothing breezy about this wind! Trees are swaying back and forth, wind chimes are clattering. Hmmm.

OH well!

Funny thing yesterday at the party... there was a Hula Hoop! You all remember Hula Hoops, don't you? I used to be an expert with them when I was a kid. I could whirl several hoops round and around for what seemed like hours. So I thought I would see if I could still whirl that hoop around this big !#@$! off mine.

NOT A CHANCE!

But what I did discover is this -- My stomach and abs got a workout just trying! I'm going to head right down to Wally-world and buy one! LOL

Hey Julie! Where did you purchase Dr. Scholls shoes? I woke up in the middle of the night thinking about that, of all things. They sounded like just the thing. I'd like to try a pair on!

Well, I've been thinking about starting another challenge to go along with our Island Hopping challenge. Only this challenge would be more towards gathering up those Spark Points. So stay tuned. It will begin in October.

Stop by for a chat! Coffee's on! Water is boiling, and there should be something healthy around here that we can nibble on!

Hugs,
Becky

Hi Everyone!

Back from the party. It's funny... everyone's kissing "movie star style" ... no more lip kissing among the fam! At least not for a while. LOL

The party was good, and I did good with my eating. There was white sticky rice, with two meat dishes that were Polynesian(SIL is Hawaiian) with a broccoli salad and an Asian Chicken salad-w/o the chicken. For birthday cake, daughter Kristen made a delicious cake that was spice pumpkin, made with a yellow cake doctored up with pumpkin, applesauce, and all the spices. It was delicious. Rich and I shared a piece. I could've gone back for more it was so good, but I didn't. I guess the only bad thing I did was I drank 2 beers, one before dinner and one with dinner.

Yes, Michael is the son who is being deployed. He bought a new Schwinn bike for Kenzie (age 5). She was totally surprised! In fact, so was everyone else. It was the GRAND FINALE!

I haven't been keeping up with my spinning or walking these past couple days. It's been so hot. I will get back on track next week. My last post in my Fitness said that I had gone over my fitness minutes and needed to adjust my calories. I don't want to do that. I'm already eating 1700 cal. a day.

The 6 pounds that I gained proved to be water. I weighed the next morning and this morning and the pounds are gone! Funny how that is.

Beth, I am so glad it finally stopped raining for you. Even though I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the rain. I know most people don't so I can't impose my wishes on everyone for rainy days. LOL

Lisa, there is nothing quite as bad as a sore throat. My grandmother's remedy of a teaspoon of honey with a squeeze of lemon on top used to make me feel better. Have you ever tried that?

OK Maureen, have you been entertaining your little doggies lately? Don't you agree that it's funny how they will lay there looking at us while we are spinning away... it's like they are wondering "where does she think she's going?"

I think I talked DH into moving my treadmill out into the garage. His side of the garage isn't used because his truck is too long to fit in. So I told him why not setup the treadmill there and I could open the garage door and look out while on the treadmill! I think he might do that for me. If I get the treadmill setup I think I may try putting Buddy on it. Is anyone doing that?

I keep campaigning for more members. It would be nice if we could grow. When you're out and about in Spark and see someone with a Westie you need to ask them to join us. Or even if they don't have a Westie, no matter! We're all here for one purpose, to lose weight and become healthier.

Keep that Spark Burning!
Becky

Good afternoon everyone (didn't make it on before church). Glad to see so many of your did get on this morning. The rain has finally stopped for right now after over a week and the sun is shining it is a very welcome sight. Bella is so excited I took her out for a short 30 minute walk (fairly slow still can't breathe too well from all the fluid build up).

Lisa I hope your throat gets better there is nothing more miserable than a sore throat makes everything you eat or drink hard to tolerate.

Becky I hope your party goes great, that's really neat to have a double party. I know you are filled with mixed emotions with the deployment, I will keep you and Michael and his family in my prayers.(Did I get correct person going to Kuwait?)

Maureen I am glad you had so much "fun" on your cycle. I am sure your dogs enjoyed their entertainment.

Everyone seems to be doing so well on the challenge Keep up the good work, I hope to be back in full force soon. In the mean time I will just keep dragging along behind and enjoying every minute I am allowed to move.

Keep on Sparkin and lovin those doggies!
Beth

Good morning everyone. This morning is a quiet one,

I brushed Shorty this morning and I tried using a little bit of peroxide and cotton wipe to get his face a little brighter(he has a brown looking beard going) but I think it will take more than one application to get it back to any white color. Tomorrow I plan on taking the new thinning shears I bought and attempt to trim Shorty down. His face needs trimming as well. A friend also gave me her Pedi paw and I am going to see how that works on him, I already just let him smell it and listen to it and it doesnt seem to disturb him at all so we will see...that will be Thursdays project.

Becky I hope your party goes well today and have fun.

Beth I hope your are feeling okay today

Maureen I hope you are doing well.

Have a great day all!

Today is a day of rest and good thing to, I have a major sore throat this morning, I think its because the house I was at yesterday for the party there was smokers.

Good Morning Sparkies!!

It's soo good to see you all here. I hope everyone slept well.

Sunday, and I have a party to get ready for this morning. I've had the gifts and card for weeks now and 'typical' I'm waiting until the last moment. As I look down at my hands I could use a fresh nail polish too.

I do have time for one cup of coffee to sit with you and listen to all that been going on with you! By the sounds of things, Lisa, you've been busy too! Feels good to finally get to sit down after a long busy day.

My yesterday was filled with bathing Buddy and trimming his ears and around his eyes. Wow! What a difference a little trimming makes. I didn't think the hair was that long until I began trimming. LOL

Well I'd better head off to the shower and get my stuff done, or I will be late for the party at 1:00.

Keep that Spark Burning!

Good Morning Westie Team!

Yep... I've got the coffee on and the water boiling. This morning's breakfast will be Shredded Wheat & 1/2 banana. Want to join me?

I slept well last night, how about you? I was really discouraged at yesterday's weigh in because there was 6 pounds show up that wasn't welcomed. I couldn't resist jumping on the scale again this morning to see if those 6 pounds were still there... AND THEY WERE GONE! WATER!! BIG SIGH!! I knew I didn't do anything that drastic to call for that many pounds to pack back on.

Tomorrow we will be going to DD home for a birthday party. Our youngest son, Michael turned 32 on the 17th and a granddaughter is turning 5 on Monday. Combining the two.

Michael is heading to Kuwait for a year, leaving the end of October. He will first be in WA,DC for a month for Marine Guard Training. Sounds like he will be setup as a guard for an Embassy or something. It's a dangerous world out there.

Maureen, I was rolling on the floor after you told me you could hardly walk after riding your bike!! I wonder what the dogs were thinking about you spinning away! LOL

Lisa, you are doing fantastic with getting in those miles. Keep up the good work! We are almost 1/2 way around the island.

Beth, I sure hope your flooding problem can get fixed, and more importantly I hope that you are feeling better now that you are on your medication. That's scary. I know Bella is right there beside you and giving you lots of lovin'!

We would love to hear from all your Westie Fans who have not yet joined back in on the conversation. We miss you!

So sit down and share with us what your plans are for the weekend. We would love to hear from you.

Keeping that SPARK Burning!
Becky

Good Afternoon Sparkies!

Everyone please read Beth's blog. [EMSSBEARS] She went to the doctor and found out that she is ill.

She will not be in our challenge for a while. We will miss her, and pray for her speedy recovery.
