Hi everyone, I have been so bad about posting lately but it has been the week from hell for the last couple of weeks. By the time I get home I don't care if I never see another computer ever again! So I am posting at work today so I get it done!

I have just had such a hard time staying on track these last 2 weeks. I am getting cardio in (I am forced to since I am walking to and from work) but strength training and eating is just pitiful! So I am going to focus on one thing at a time and start making new habits. The first habit is after work snacking. I need to have healthy snacks available and just don't buy the things I cannot stay away from. (nuts, boy I love nuts). As I am doing that I am really going to work on adding strength training. I keep trying but it is definitely not going as well as I want. I am sucking at our challenge.

Enough whining - I hope everyone is having a good day and a good October.

Barbara will have our October chat up in a day or two so don't post here!

Oct 1...my fav month, starting out with a 2 lb loss really kicks it off good for me. Hoping to lose another 8 by the end of the month but given my menopausal state I will be happen with any additional poundage gone by then. Day 3 exercise and hip soar but functioning. Hope all of you are having a good week too and October will be a good month for you!

Frannie, I didn't know you were coming to MY birthday tomorrow - WOW that will be so cool to get to see you. What time will you be arriving?

My computer is still acting up but it is a little better with the system restore. Hopefully, I will get it straightened out over the weekend.

Berry4 so glad you got rain, we had a lot this summer but September has been very dry. I am going to have to water everything this weekend as the weather man says no rain for the next week or so.
I did okay with the b'days, not great but okay. I am working very hard on my evening snacking, that seems to be the worst time for me. I know a lot of it is just habit and if I am not busy boredom. Trying to get into sewing and knitting again. I just don't have a good place to sew so it ends up being such a hassle. I have an extra bedroom and if I could just close Mom and Pop's storage facility I could use that room.

We had rain for the first time in a long time! (@ 10 weeks I believe) Things are so very brown & dry. It was nice to get a bit of the dust wet!

Hi all, it is chilly this morning, had a really nice walk to work.

I had a birthday Friday, a birthday Saturday, I have one today and another one tomorrow! I am struggling with all of it, did okay Friday, not weight loss calories but not so much that I would gain. I think I did okay over the weekend, I didn't track and we will see today. I have cupcakes and cake in my house, I couldn't get my daughter to take it and will have more cake tomorrow (my son is taking that with him!). I am just going to do my best and keep walking!

It's very pleasant now, but it is supposed to warm up some later this week. Warm is typical for this time of year, but 100 degrees is not typical.

It is so hard to believe it is so hot there and so chilly here! I wish I could send you some of our very cool weather, yesterday it was finally warm enough that I did not need long sleeves. Got a sweat shirt on today. It should be warmer later in week though, I hope you all get cool weather.

With any luck, we are over it--the last few days have been really nice, maybe high 80's but after the intense heat, it feels like winter!

That is definitely HOT - we are in the midst of a cool down - mornings around 45 and afternoons around 70 - really my favorite temperatures and also my favorite season

Wow, Barbara, that is hot!

The bird went to the rescue organization today, the specialize in cage birds so he/she will be better off. No one here has the time to care of the bird and I don't have the inclination!

Walking again today, it is cool but not too cold.

We have been suffering through a major heat wave--temps as high as 107 this week. It is cooling down--to the mid-90s--this week but I think it is supposed to go up again. Heat is not unusual for this time of year but such excessive heat is.

Hi all! It is lovely here, I am really enjoying the walking weather! We found a bird, a cockatiel outside a few days ago. It is a pretty bird but so noisy. anyway we put signs out all over and left flyers at houses all around but no one has claimed him. I am ready for him to go to a rescue but I think my daughter and SIL want to keep him. I feel bad for the bird, he is very stressed, he hasn't really relaxed yet and he won't let us touch him.

I am getting in good exercise, if I could just get my eating under control! I am doing much better but still need to keep working on it.

Hope you are all having a great week!

Got my house cleaned, as usual for a Monday morning. Made an appointment to take my car in for service this afternoon--that was a lazy one for me! I don't want to get up first thing tomorrow to get it there, so I am bringing it over today and they will have it tomorrow morning--and I can sleep in if I want to!!

Hi all, I am really working on getting back on track too CathyRose! I did so good for so long!

The weather here is so awesome, I hope you are all having the same thing. It is great for walking, I do hope to get more in now.

Kind of wondering where everyone is? Hey guys, let us know what is going on! I am glad to see all of the wall posts, that makes me think we are at least looking here. And a nice response to the fall challenge, I do love that, it motivates me!

Morning all! Getting back on track with Spark recently and happy to be a part of this group. Keeping it real and heading out for a run shortly, then housework. Never forget to track housework! It counts. Hope you all have a great Saturday!

WOW is right - I love it when a new day, a new week, and a new month all begin on the same date. September is MY most successful month most of the time because of several reasons. First of all, it is a beginning of a new year for me - my birthday month always feels like the beginning of a new year for me. Next, I am a teacher and for most of my life, school has been central in my life and so the beginning of a new school year is also another reason why it feels like the beginning of a new year for me. But it is also the beginning of my favorite season of the year - I love autumn and the arrival of the cooler mornings and evenings with warm days, the bright leaf-changing colors, and the excitement of feeling alive and new and as if I can do anything. I haven't had time yet to get bogged down in the hopelessness of each new challenge - it feels fresh, new and hopeful to me.

I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL AND SUCCESSFUL SEPTEMBER

Nancy from West Virginia - EST
With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.
