Hi, Lisa! Digital scrapbooking sounds like a good way to spend a day. I did a digital scrapbook for my in-laws last year for Christmas, and they seemed to like it. I have done a few paper scrapbooks, too, and enjoyed that.

I get to go to work today. I've been out of town for half of this year, already, and I have a ton to catch up on, so I'm going to go in and try to get my mind around a big project that I'm in the middle of planning.

Then I'll be hitting my exercise bike to make up for sitting still too much.

Have a great day, everyone!

Good Morning everyone! Hope you have a great start to your weekend. I think I am going to spend my day digital scrapbooking. I am working on my son's so it will be ready when he graduates in two years. Sounds like I have a long time, but it will come around quickly. Have a great day!

I grew up in NW Ohio and have lived there until last July. NW Ohio is very flat and pretty wide open. This is a big difference! We love it though.

Hi Lisa! I have been AWOL from the group this month because I've been doing a ton of traveling and not enough Sparking. Welcome to Tennessee, and the East Tennessee Sparkers. You're right, it is a beautiful place.

Where in Ohio did you live? I grew up in Central Ohio, near Columbus.

Hello everyone. My name is Lisa and I live in Wears Valley. We moved here in July from Ohio. We absolutely love the mountains. It has been our dream to move here and now it is reality! We have three wonderful children. One who attends Lee University and the other two attend Pigeon Forge schools. I have been a member of Sparkpeople for 3 year. I am back after taking a break and doing the big move and all. Life is good!

I've been MIA for a couple of days and falling behind, I'm sure, in my exercise minutes challenge. My Mom (who usually lives here, but is visiting my sister in Florida) went into the hospital down there on Tuesday afternoon. I've been a little wigged out about it, although it appears that nothing serious is going on. Instead of working out hard to work on the emotions as I know I should, I curled up early yesterday and went to bed. At least I only ate a little over my usual, but I have to get it in gear today!

How are all of you doing?

Not so much overload...just the usual large servings.

What's with this fog this morning? It's settled around campus so that I can't see the trees outside my window. I hope it clears off soon and we get the beautiful day they've predicted.

It's nice that you have that time off. I have Christmas to New Year's off, and I am *so* looking forward to it. But between now and then I have to get all my Christmas shopping done, get Mom on a plane to Florida to be with my sis for the holiday, and get the ETSU students through exam week without anyone having a total meltdown.

Hey Marie-
We're looking at the Butler/Cranberry area. I'm originally from Pittsburgh, hubby from Butler, so yeah, we're definitely looking forward to getting back home again! emoticon
Good luck with your doctor appointment--I hope there's nothing medical going on that's keeping you from losing. Keep us posted!
Hope you're having a great weekend--I've got two more days to work (Mon and Tues) then I'll be off 'til Jan 5th with my little guy for Christmas break--yay!!
Hugs!

Wow, Dawn! That's great that you've kept it up and are now in maintenance mode. I've been maintaining since about February--but I'm still only halfway to goal. I am seeing a doc to see if there's something metabolic that's keeping me from losing.

Are you looking forward to moving back to PA? What part? I used to live in Eastern Ohio, so loved to go to Pittsburgh.

Hey!
Everyone just kinda stopped in September...sad, we had a good thing going for a while there. I have continued on and reached a good maintaining point for the holidays--don't want to add another stressor of trying to lose over Christmas. As it is, we are now in the process of moving home to PA after New Years, so I've got more than enough on my plate!! But I'm running every other day and doing ST in between--def a huge help in burning off stress and anxiety about the holidays and moving!! I couldn't imagine NOT having that outlet now! Tracking my food for the most part--got alot more play room with calories once I went into maintenance mode...so holding strong at 154 and a great size 7/8!! Thanks to Spark, that is!!! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a blessed, healthy New Year everybody!!
Much love!
Dawn

I used to do a lot of camping all over East Tn. Growing up as a kid we camped at Cades Cove and Chimney Tops (before they turned it into a picnic area), several of the campgrounds in Townsend.

I would rather be at a campsite than anywhere else! No better smell than a campfire! emoticon

Hey YellowDay!
We love camping but can't go too far 'cuz of our dogs--they're too crazy to take with us and we can't afford to board them, so we scoot to Frozen Head whenever we get the chance. It's close enough to come home and check on the dogs, it's beautiful and lots of great hiking trails!

Y'all say a little prayer for Matthew(my son). He had minor in office surgery today to have a cyst removed from the back of his neck, and he's in a bit of discomfort. :( Also pray it doesn't get infected or anything. I can't believe that ...man didn't prescribe him antibiotics when the cyst was infected anyways before it was removed....EAST TN Health care, I tell ya...

He's still sore and it's bleeding a bit. I keep having to change the dressing on it and we are keeping him home from school today & tomorrow. Kids can be so mean and I don't want anyone purposely hitting on it..and they will...He insisted on keeping that thing they removed in a jar so he can carry it to school. LOL! He's a very funny ... He was cracking jokes and being funny the entire time the doctor was working on him. The worst part was the needles to numb his neck, and then he felt the stitches...now he is just really sore...still cracking jokes! I've given birth to a comedian! :-)

Sorry I've been MIA Team, been going through some emotional stuff, planning out some changes, working through some things with the aid of Bob Harper's "Are You Ready!", and now it's cramp day so...Just been kind of introspective as of late, but I do check in everyday and I also asked CPCJONES to help us run the joint and thankfully she agreed, so that's totally awesome!

For now I need to go take some pain meds and ly down. I hope you all have a wonderful day.

Dawn, I would be happy to lose twelve pounds in a year. Wow........
I pledged to do 10,000 steps a day this month. Whew, that is a challenge. So far, so good, but I have had to jog every night for about 15 minutes to get the steps all in....... The pounds are not coming off, but I seem to be turning into a little black hole. Losing inches. Enjoy those last days of summer with your kids.

Hey everyone!
Happy Tuesday! Hope you're all having a great week! Lucky me has a dentist appointment this morning and then we are off to Athens to visit the Mayfield Dairy and see how they make ice cream! And, oh yeah, I will be sampling some free yummies!! Hahaha! So, of course, I weighed in this morning instead of waiting til tomorrow since we'll most likely be eating out lunch and dinner as well--not that I ever have a problem with that, I seem to consume less calories when we eat out than I do when we eat at home!! Don't ask me how--must be out of sheer fear that I order only the healthiest things on the menus! But!! I lost another 1.5lbs, which put me square at 30lbs lost!! Hallelujah! I couldn't have done it without Spark!! I'm so excited and so proud of myself for all the hard work to get here emoticon I'm really gonna push for that final goal this month!! Who's with me?? emoticon

I did catch it finally--not very long segment but a good plug for Spark! There was a link on Facebook to watch it, too. Hey, congrats on the loss!! And good luck with all those push ups! I can imagine your arms would really be feeling it!! emoticon I'm more of a tricep dip girl myself--not a fan of the push up at all...I'm just ecstatic my knee isn't hurting anymore and I'm able to run again! Yay! Hope everybody has a great weekend!! TTYS!

Good Morning girls!
Dawn thank you, I am feeling much better this morning. I had two days this month of girly crampy crap. You'd think it wouldn't be so bad with just one little ovary! LOL!

Yeah sometimes rest days are just as important as our workout days. You ave to allow the body to rest and repair itself gf. You know this. hehe :)

I hope everyone has a great day!

So, learning from vacation--a little less exercise seemed to actually be better and have taken off two days of the elliptical to allow my legs to rest--the better to run with, eh?? Or so I'm hoping. I just feel like I'm not doing enough if I'm not running my butt off on the elliptical every day!! So, we'll try this schedule for a couple weeks and see what the numbers do. Happy Wednesday!!!! Hey--make sure ya'll are watching ET tonight--Spark peeps are on TV!!!

Good morning E TN Teamies and Happy Monday! emoticon It's been getting a little quiet around here and I thought maybe we could pick things up for next month, get some things rolling here as we approach the end of summer and the need to get in that bathing suit has waned...So I posted a proposal for a new challenge for the month of August in our Challenge Forum called Challenge Yourself! Be sure to check it out, start thinking about what your personal challenge might be and I hope ya'll will join us in making your dreams and goals a reality!

Wow, the weekend is here already! 2009 is FLYING by!! Good gosh, the kids'll be back in school before we blink! Today...rain. Been quite the wet summer, huh? It's a good thing--less watering the garden always works for me! Haha--lovin' that water bill! But, the rest of the day's agenda--I have strength training this morning, oh how I want to run!! But, I am holding off 'til Monday...or maybe Sunday...I'm trying to rethink my workout routine and swapping running for my step video instead of trying to do it ALL--I think overuse may have led to the injury in the first place and I don't want to end up back in the same mess again. Hmmmm....So like run Sun, Tues, Thur, then strength on Mon, Wed, Fri, pilates Saturday and elliptical every day...??? That's what I'm thinking for now. Anyone else going to the Anderson County Fair this weekend? Supposed to be a good bit cooler once this rain gets on through! Hope ya'll have a GREAT weekend!

Mornin' Team!
How is everyone today? Monday and raining again--but we really need it, so not complaining!! I'm starting a five week Body & Soul challenge today, if anyone wants to jump in, go to this site: http://wholeliving.com/body-and-soul-chall
enge The first week is a detox, which isn't all that far off what I've been eating from Spark menus! Sounds fun and interesting--nothing like changing things up a little, right?? Knee is starting to feel better and I hope to be running again by the end of the week. Today, ST this morning then elliptical in the afternoon. Hope ya'll have a great week planned! TTYS! Go Spark!!

Hey, thanks Sally! It's good to be home emoticon
Believe it or not, our OR store has one of the highest theft problems in the region! They wipe out our audio dept like crazy! We very much need Adam there to keep an eye on things and it's helped a good deal. He's a sweetie even as intimidating as he looks--lots of folks have complained about being 'followed' by him--but we see it that if you don't have a guilty conscience, it really shouldn't bother you! I have a sad feeling our store may be going by the wayside. We're the lowest in sales and highest in loss. They've cut hours like crazy--I'm thankful for my other job at Food City since I'm almost never at BAM anymore. But anytime you're there, give a holler--ya' never know! emoticon It'd be great to meet a teamie!

Dawn, welcome back.

With you permission, I will look you up when I am in Books a Million. We live on the Clinton end of Oak Ridge, just off 61, so we are in there a lot. What is with the security guy? Seems hard to believe that there is enough shop lifting in a book store to account for a full time staff member. Anyway, we do coffee there sometimes, and shop/browse.

I bought myself a wii fit, and it is going to make all the difference. It is really fun, and the time flys by. Also, it has a reliable scale, so no more goof ups. I am now 6.5 lbs behind my frog. But catch him, and pass him, I will.
Have a great day. emoticon

Good morning everyone!!
We are back in Woodstock, VA-our 'halfway-ish' point and heading home this morning--hallelujah! I so miss my puppies and I can't wait to get back into my regular workout routine again...I've done fairly well on vacation still, ran and walked every day, did strength training with my resistance band and kept to smart choices as much as possible when eating. I did splurge just a wee bit..it IS vacation after all, right?? Totally back on track 100% tomorrow when it's so much easier to control my eating environment and not have to rely on what's in someone else's fridge and ask to go to the grocery store, but be ignored....grrfff!! Luckily, I don't go back to work 'til next Wednesday, so lots of time to get everything back in order at home--and I seriously need to get back to school shopping done for my little bug--three weeks to go before school starts!! Summer's buzzin' by! I hope everyone has had a great week--have a happy Wednesday!!

Thanks everyone for your support. I was afraid I was going to offend someone. Hopefully things will continue to look up now. it took them a while, but we rarely get the cold shoulder anymore. I DO love East TN. I think it's so beautiful, even though I do miss the ocean, since I grew up with one...But it's ok. I love going to the lake too!

Where is everyone? I am missing Dawn! Is she home yet? Anyhoo, got the workout done I managed to lose a little more weight over this weekend. I hope I don't find it! LOL! One more pound to be where the ticker is! 4 more to be back at 20 lbs lost!

Roni, I am sorry you have had such a hard time. I had the same experience in Atlanta, in two different neighborhoods. People who are set, and have been somewhere for a while don't need new friends.
They have family, and friends from way back when.
Our new place is all newer houses, so no one has been "settled in". Our new friends are transplants too...... Maybe that's the difference. But you do hear stories about those "counties". Guess there really are "mountain folk"... Hope it continues to bet better.
Don't give up on the bullying... It is important. Be sure to get your little guy talking openly to you about it. If he can share it, it will go better for him. Hang in there.
