Back home and it is a great feeling! Time to get serious about my eating habits again. Eating out has been challenging for the last two weeks. Lol!

Great baseball game last night! If your town has a minor league team, go check out a game this summer. Much more exciting and fast-paced than MLB; it's an inexpensive afternoon or evening entertainment in the summer sunshine!

Every day is a new adventure.

I don't know why so many message boards are quiet these days or how one could go about changing that. I see people using their smart phones unceasingly. The ones I've asked tell me they're looking at facebook or texting.

I know what you mean. My husband can eat anything and never gain an ounce. Me, I just look at food and gain 10 pounds. Lol!

My motivation-find a picture of me that I absolutely hate. Look at it often. That helps me keep pressing on.

So far, so good! Remains to be seen how it will go when the husband gets back tomorrow (he's a long distance trucker). He can be a bad influence ("let's go out for fried chicken"), but maybe I can be a good one ("let's try this oven-fried chicken recipe")!

I've been weighing myself every day for the last 3 days. Going to keep it up for at least a week then I am going to start looking at the data. For right now I just want to get in the habit of getting on the scale.

I've been doing some geocaching and Munzee capturing since I have been back from vacation. Yesterday was International Geocaching Day and I captured one. This month is 31 Days of Caching event of which I only have the two days - yesterday and the day before. I do not think I will be able to get any today because of work.

I am just jumping in here to chat! Love living in TN - so different from CT - anyway I am now addicted to walking - have a track right across the street so there's really no excuse. Usually do 3+ miles 5x week and weights the other 2 days. I walk fast, with my iPod to keep me going. Can't take my lab - too old and too many surgeries on his right rear leg to accompany me. Can't run either, though that was my original goal - pinched nerve in back so have to walk instead. That's ok, at least I am moving!
Haven't done that great in the food category lately - I think I've gained weight though I haven't gotten on the scale yet to find out. Have a lot of allergies including some food and was doing really good for a while - now I've slipped - have to get strict again.
OK enough about me - please let me know what y'all are up to emoticon

Don't stop believin'

10 pounds in one week! Heck yeah, you go! Portions make all the difference in the world.

Currently I'm debating whether to clean or take a hike, literally. I need to do both. But I take all day hikes, anything else is just a walk in the woods to me. Ahhh the hard decisions in life, lol. Hope everyone has a great day!

Hey all! Sorry it has been so long, got lost on my diet. It was working and I got hungry and gave in. Now, I have been on a gluten free diet and trying to have vegetarian meals as much as possible and when we have meat in our meals we cut it way down. Instead of using a pound I cook with a half pound. I used to worry alot about protein and nutrients since I didn't care much for veggies. I am now learning that they aren't so bad after all, lol. Spaghetti squash is really good and I have learned how to make a eggplant parmesan. If you need recipies shoot me a spark mail and I'll send you some. P.S. I lost 10 pounds the first week!

I cannot find my motivation today! Has anyone seen it? I think it's still in the bed. Lol
I decided last night that I was going to set an alarm on my lifeline, I mean phone, to get my bad booty out of bed and go walk/jog/run/skip/something this morning before breakfast. So I did. I set the alarm to wake up at 7:30 this morning. Then I got the idea to set a second alarm for 15 minutes later to ensure that I got my butt out the door and yet another after that to remind myself that I meant all of it. Wonderful plan, right? Surely I could get out there with THREE alarms telling myself to do so, right? Wrong. I convinced myself that I couldn't go. What reason did I use to validate not going? My dogs. I decided it would be too much trouble to bring Diva with me, since I have to do my walk/run/jog/skipping thing on the road, since I live in a very rural area. I am so tired of making excuses for myself, yet I always have one.

Hi, folks. I am still around, but as you can guess from the few times I've posted, I could use some help around here. Anyone game for taking over team leader? Or being a co-leader with me?

We're going to Michigan City, just north of there--leaving the third week in May. Isn't that a coincidence?

My brother is graduating from college, so we're going up to watch him walk after many years of part-time classes.

Hi, Anita. It's hard to keep track when you're traveling, but try to make the best choices possible and to get as much physical activity in as you can. I'm going to Indiana a couple of weeks from now, so maybe we'll pass each other on the interstate. emoticon

I've not been around for about a week. I have to get going and read more of The Spark book. I've only read one chapter so I'm not really losing any weight. However, we are going away for 2 weeks and we are going to Indiana. I think I'll just bring the book with me and a notebook too.

Hi, everybody! I've been MIA for awhile, working too hard and paying too little attention to my health, but the gorgeous weather has my juices flowing and I'm ready to hit it again.

How are you all doing with your diet and exercise goals? And has anybody checked out SparkSavings? I just discovered it today and I think I'm going to love it.

Marie

I'm loving all the sun here in East Tn...& all the softball this week (Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat)--I'm walking the ball fields (& staying away from the concession stands!) emoticon

Hi Tennesseeyankee
I'm glad to find somebody that lives fairly close to me. I live right over the line from Lake City in Campbell County. I have been in TN 5 years. I love it here. I'm originally from the Northeast. I will be 70 on May 4. emoticon emoticon

Thank you coatwood. I'm running into some physical problems on the walking so I'm going to have to work on that. I weigh in tomorrow evening but I'm kind of nervous because I didn't do what I was supposed to do this week. I'm notgiving up though.

Hi Marie, I'm a slow learner so it's going to take me awhile to get around this website. I have started changing some things in my diet. One thing that I have started is to walk about 5 days a week. Thank goodness my husband is doing it with me because I was always scared to go alone. we do about 20 minutes a day. Next week I will try for 30 minutes.

Hi, Anita! The more you get to know SparkPeople, the more you'll learn not to think of it as a diet, but as a new way of life. It's all about goals and health, which includes weight loss for most of us, but it's really just a benefit of healthy living. Food choices are broad, and although some veg living is here, most of it is a regular fruit & veggies, lean meat, and whole grains kind of eating. No foods are "off-limits" but some foods are just healthier than others. If you start tracking your food intake on the tracker, even without making a lot of changes, you'll start to see the patterns in your regular diet and see where you can make small changes that will add up to big results.

Welcome to SparkPeople! I think you'll love the book.

Marie

Good morning Tennessee, The sun is shining here in Campbell County. I've been on a diet for a week and I weighed in last night and I lost 2 lbs. It was a struggle to try and put every thing together. I did walk about 3 times last week, about 20 min. each time. I have Fibromyalgia and a degenerative disc desease of the spine so I just have to do the best I can. I checked out some of the nutrition ideas on this site and I'm not sure I can do it. It seems to be mostly vegetarian, but I bought the book and I'm going to read it when I get it and I'll go from there. I am going to stay on this web site because I know I'm going to love the discussion forums.
I hope you are all doing well on your diets.
Anita emoticon emoticon

Bootcamp teams are run by the coaches--you get exercise videos and other challenges to do every day during the bootcamp period. There's usually one in Spring to get us ready for bikini season. They're fun and motivating, even if you're like me and unlikely to EVER wear a bikini.

Since I am new... What's a bikini bootcamp? LOL! I have not been as faithful with my exercise as I would like (torn ligament in the knee) but I have been faithfully using the nutrition page. Boy will I be glad when spring arrives... I am really tired of seeing the white stuff fall from the sky. LOL ! Hope everyone has a wonderful evening!

Hi Marie!
Glad to hear you're staying on track with your workouts. I've quickly gotten spoiled running inside on the treadmill and haven't ventured back out to the roads, though I will once winter finally thaws away. Hopefully we'll be up in PA then!! Hope everything is okay with your mom--thankfully you're there to help get her around. That's exactly why we decided to head back home this year now that my mom is on her own, I want to be there whenever she may need me. So let's keep keepin' on!! Spring's not that far away and we'll be talking bikini bootcamps again!

Where is everybody? Are we all just hunkered down, trying to keep warm and hoping Spring will come very soon? As for me, I've been dealing with family stuff--took Mom to the ER over the weekend and for tests today, and trying to keep my head above water at work. I have been getting my workouts in, though, after a couple of months of slacking. How are those New Year's resolutions coming along for the rest of you?

Go get 'em Dawn!

And in case you're wondering what DMAURICE is talking about with the fitness minutes--I am sending out awards to the people who have the most fitness minutes and most spark points (unless it's the same person) at the end of each month. Babe741 won with SparkPoints in January, and came in a close second on fitness minutes. So if you have a competitive streak and want some recognition for the time you spend exercising, give them a run for the money in February! All you have to do is log your time in the SP Fitness tracker and I'll get the information from the leaderboards available on the team's main page.

Good morning everyone! I just wanted to pop in and say thanks for the Spark Goodie for having the most fitness minutes for January! That was a great surprise! And, oh yeah, I'm up for the challenge to make that happen again in February!! And considering I finally have a treadmill being delivered tomorrow, that shouldn't be any problem at all--I'm so excited!! I've been wanting one for a long time, and now that school's been closed almost a week, I put my foot down with hubby and insisted I needed one if I'm going to be trapped in the house all the time with school closings. He finally consented and said to go get one--I hit the door running and didn't look back for one second! LOL! Got a hot new Nordic Trac being delivered and assembled by Sears after work tomorrow and you can bet I'll be on before the delivery guys are even out the door! Yay!! Happy Me! Here's to a Fantastic Fit February!!

I've never been to the Bahamas, but I *love* Key West. My sister lives in South Florida so we go down the Keys pretty often when I go to visit her.

As for the motion sickness, I have a few issues with it too, but I haven't had a problem onboard those big cruise ships except when there's a storm brewing. Even then, I only had trouble on the cruise where I was on an upper deck, which I find ironic since those are usually the more expensive rooms.

Keep us up to date on your progress! 25 pounds is ambitious but do-able.

I'm excited. This is my first cruise & I'm going on a ship most educators probably don't want to be on. I'm taking my teen & will be surrounded by other teens the end of June (Carnival ship..the fun ship..if you love to be around kids...which I do). This first cruise is not very long--to the Bahamas & Key West. I just wanted to make sure my "motion sickness" doesn't become a problem. I'd love to drop about 25 pounds by then...so Jillian may have to yell at me a lot! emoticon

I love my Jillian Michaels Wii game, but can't do it right now because my shoulder is frozen up and she yells at me when I can't do the right form. emoticon

A cruise sounds like a great motivator. Where are you going? What cruise line? I've been on a couple (the first, my brother won!), and have been thinking that it would be fun to go again sometime soon.

Yes. Camp was cancelled. We really didn't get that much snow but a lot of ice so I would not have traveled the 2 hours anyway. I like the Wii BL workout but it is tough. I try to work it in every other day otherwise I would not be able to move! I'm trying to lose a few pounds before a cruise in June (Katie should have about 80 ball games in by then so she will be in great shape). Looks like I will be making a lot of trips around the ball fields this Spring. emoticon

I'm trying to get over it...heading up to my workout room to get on my exercise bike and watch my recordings of Biggest Loser. I also have a couple of Wii games that I may pull out again for strength training. How do you like the BL game? Was your daughter's softball clinic cancelled? Campus closed for the weekend, so I figured that kind of thing would be cancelled too.

Yes. My daughter was supposed to be up your way tomorrow for a softball clinic at ETSU but unfortunately, I'm not making the 2 hour drive with the latest forecast. I'm just staying home, reading The Spark, & working out on my wii to the BL game I received for Christmas. Enjoy the snow!

Whew. What a week I'm having! Work is insane and all I want to do is hibernate. Is anyone else feeling the same way? Or are you looking forward to this weekend's snow?
