Good morning!!

This winter has been very, very long!!!

I went to a bridle shower last night and it was boring. It started at 5pm. I left at 7pm. In that time, all that happened is we ate (I ate veggies & fruit, ok and a cup cake) and we played a game where you answer questions about the bride and groom. There is not way anyone knew all the answers. The questions were like there was the last place they ate, when was their first kiss, stuff like that. By 7 I was done. So I came home and got ready for bed. LOL!!!

I have to be head cook again this coming week. Monday through Wednesday. I am having a good time!!

Hope you have a nice Sunday!! emoticon to everyone!!!

Hello!! I'm Linda/Lyn from St. Louis, MO USA!

Live, laugh, love, relax and play!!

I love life!!!

What a way to start a weekend! It was raining all morning when I left for work. Around noon it switched from rain to snow! Wow what a funny weather we have here. Yesterday was nice and sunny out there and today it was in the 30s. I had to bundle up again so I don't freeze out there! ! Luckily I am back home again and I am just starting to enjoy my weekend with my family! Have a wonderful weekend emoticon s!

Hey all!! Yesterday it was 56 and tomorrow will be 50....today it is in the 30's and there is snow on the ground!!! Crazy Ohio weather!!!! Want spring to be here and stay!!

My knee is healing up....went to the gym for measurements...this month not as good as last month. Lost 3 pounds and an inch from my waist...about everything stayed the same...my trainer reminded me that I had a lot of stress last month and that can hinder a lot...I start my new job on Monday and am finally free of my old!! Happy dance !! I did walk in the treadmill for 20 minutes but took it easy. Bought a brace to help my knee and the swelling is down significantly!! Time to do what I can this month...still waiting to see what happens to my training schedule when my job starts..hmmm

Been lazy long enough!!! Time to get my shower in!!!! Happy Saturday!!

So glad the car is fixed! I had a horrible car failure experience in November that lasted a month! Not fun at all.

It is so awesome to feel the difference in your clothing! emoticon

The guys fixing the roof of my apartment took out my internet service somehow. Can't get the technician out until tomorrow afternoon. So I came over to my MIL to hang out because my kids were going crazy without internet. We kept asking each other 'what did people do before the internet?'. I was stressing because I had assignments to complete and couldn't get here to MIL's until now. Oh well, long night ahead. emoticon

My car is fixed.. Good-Bye $175 ... LOL

Could have been worse.. Still hurts though.. *ouch*

I'm telling you - when it rains it pours bc before I left to deal with the car today, our AC went out! emoticon

We are renters thank goodness (not out of our pocket) but it is a warm/humid day with no AC.. It's 78* inside the house right now.. *BLAH!*

We have every fan we own blowing and on. Probably wont sleep too comfy tonight.

They said the repair man SHOULD be here tomorrow. If he doesn't show, then Monday..

*Grumble*

I'm so ready for this week to be OVER!!

Friday -

Well, missin' work... The family friend that will help me out today fixing my car does not get off work until 6PM and then he will take me to get the parts needed and then work on my car.

(My hubby is working (he doesn't get off until 11PM) so I have to deal with this..LOL)

What a mess and what an expense we didn't need right now! emoticon

It could always be worse though.....Trying to find the bright spots. emoticon

Have A Great Friday! emoticon

So happy all these hiccups are happening now so hopefully my week 1 of SJ Challenge goes smoothly! LOL

What a HORRIBLE Day! emoticon
Only been home a short while... Left the house around 4:15PM to go to Wal-Mart for groceries and my car decided to completely die at The Oates/Galloway Intersection at a Red Light!

The car started shaking, the radio and air went off and as soon as the light turned green and I pressed on gas it died!
emoticon Cars honking and flipping me off bc I couldn't go..
I was coasting down the hill and was able to take left and turn into gas station thank the Good Lord! Daddy and my Sis came to my rescue.
Looks like it's the alternator. I'll be dealing with this tomorrow now.. *sigh*
Always something! Thanks to my son/his car, I was able to get the groceries and get back home. It's 12:30AM - Just got groceries put away and have not had anything for dinner yet!
emoticon

I'll chat/answer questions here tomorrow! emoticon

Man, things are hectic here. Just as I started really getting into the stride of things, I twisted my ankle really good. But! I've found some chair exercises I'm going to try and do every day until my ankle heals. ^.^ Hope things are going well for everyone.

I am glad that you agree any movement is a good thing even when it is sniff walking I laugh at my dogs we maybe walking around in the yard together or where ever and then I reach for the leash and they are so excited and I look at them what is the difference we were already walking together now you can not roam as much but okay let's go. However maybe the are thinking that this way they are taking me for a walk not the other way around. So you and Zuzu sniff away at your walks I know here my two are hoping for another trip to the park to enjoy their sniff walk. Jul

Jul - I have read that too and I "Do Not Agree!" emoticon

Any movement is a good thing. Fresh air and sunshine is a good thing.

No matter what, you've changed your surroundings and that can lead to other healthful things/activities and even change the way we look at food. When I take my ZuZu for a "stroll with lots of sniffing/stopping," it's still exercise and I still want to snack and eat better bc of that exercise. It also makes us happy bc we love our pets and that puts us in a better mind-set as well.

Hello team!!! I am in the midst of a super busy week as I spend nearly all my spare time and energy preparing for a new job opportunity that fell into my lap this week. It's funny because I asked Grace to share some of the new job luck with me, and BAM! Like Grace, I hope I take this opportunity all the way! You guys are in my thoughts however and that helps me remain committed to my goal. Thank you and keep sparking!!!

emoticon Finally have a chance to sit for a minute before bed time.

Today was very productive. Gym first thing this morning. You know you got a good work out when you are dripping in sweat at the end. I was so proud of my sweat I never stopped to wipe until I was completely done, emoticon gross I know. I was so pooped after, I took a nap after lunch. Haven't taken a nap in forever, but my eyes wouldn't stay open to do classwork. I ended up sleeping for 2 hours! Heaven knows there already aren't enough hours in the day.

Oh and I was able to get breakfast in this morning! emoticon

Stacy it is good to see the team is doing well I was not sure what the meaning was on the question Letticia asked.
Funny one day I was reading some article I think and thy were talking about walking with your dog as a good way for a workout however sniff walking did not count and I thought it can be hard to stop them from sniff walking I did that once due to the fact it was so cold and I wanted to hurry and get back to the car to head home but my girl Coco Shanell wanted to check out all the smells that was the walking trail in town need I say more she wanted to do a lot of smelling.
Good thought I think it is time to retire some jeans it don't matter on the comfort to big. Good thought indeed.

I do agree Stacy and think that this weather is going to warm soon is in my thoughts and it will be easier to get out and exercise or s I put it wiggle on down the road. Funny but if I walk my dogs sniff breaks are going to be included in the package deal hands down no questioned asked I think it is in the dog handbook. It must be for they don't want to move until everything new is sniffed and taking them to the park can be funny to no ends for they love to go one does the zig zag game and the other plays the stop go stop go back track return game funny but I walk the second one she likes to make it a game in walking who can get back to the car first game in her head. Well getting ready to head to work till later--Jul

wow it sure does for me and my husband Allen we are down to just 2 four legged babies but they are like raising children that is for sure however they never get to the point that they are out of the children stage do they? We however got married near my husbands birthday so he can remember it right I don't know but it sounded good. We will have 26 years together in September to us time has no meaning I think we just keep adding to the four legged babies only so we never have the usual things kids to.
I am afraid to mention to myself but over the last few days been cheating and I think the pounds may try to come back to stay so need to get back in gear and my sinuses are still being a issue but I was able to get some sleep yeah however a yellow car instead of it's usual dark blue that explains everything so spring is officially here pollen has arrived. Funny but at work everybody was giving a thing or two ideas to help me over the hump. So in the next day or two a trip to the store is in line to give it a run for it's money and get in the mood to maybe walk again with everything blooming it should be a pretty view to see. Everybody keep chugging along---Jul

emoticon for shopping!

Today is my 8 year anniversary! Oh my, 8. Although we have been together for 14 and living together for 13. Time flies!

I have been fighting with my accounting class for the better part of yesterday and all morning. I got behind because my instructor doesn't give due dates. She just gave the last date that the work can be turned in. So I'm like SCORE! I will just use spring break to do accounting. NOPE! There is a midterm due this week and it includes all information from chapters 1-5. Well that sounds like a due date to me right? emoticon It's my fault, I should've paid attention. I have 8 classes, most of them are 1 unit classes, and I have been working on the ones with due dates. So I am up to chapter 3, thank heaven!

I am now heading out to gym class. I haven't worked out since Saturday, so I am excited! Catch up with you all later! emoticon

emoticon Hi everyone!

Happy Tuesday! emoticon

I found some cute blouses yesterday and finally got to use my gift card at Charming Charlie!

emoticon Love my new pieces.

Feeling a little *blah* today bc I was right, my cycle came yesterday so I'm bloated and crampy but so thankful it will be over by the time the April Skinny Jeans Challenge starts!

All that's left for me to find at this time are a black, tan/cream & white pair of flats.

Also some more flip flops.. ( mine are worn out! lol)
I'm having trouble with the flats bc they have made most of the styles pointed and they hurt my toes! So, still on the hunt for those!

I have a lot to try and accomplish today and also have a lawn service coming today to pull all the weeds out of flower beds so I can begin gardening and decorating next week when I'm off! So excited about that!

yes Stacy I understand I work in the medical field so I am around ones that are not feeling their tops at the beginning and my sinuses are at the point once again that I can not breathe easily which makes my throat sore and the cycle begins once again. I think I could do better if I could sleep and breathe but unless you can sitting straight it gets hard but I just mumble thru bad is you look for cough drops all day so the good or bad thing is I am not alone on this trouble it is common here with the pollen coming I dread it this time I have been battling for months already but I am trying to keep my chin up with lots of showers and cough medicine which is about all anyone can do the bad is up about 20 hours or better before next drift off so I eat I think that makes it worse their is only so much rabbit food one can eat before diving into should I say chocolate or something related which don't help. So I sit and read a lot with try to wiggle all day. About to head to work till later --Jul

Good morning!

I did my first zumba class at curves on Saturday and loved it! I will definitally be doing this again! I'm hooked! Then I got my hair cut. I got 6 inches cut off and had layers put in.
Didn't go to moms Saturday . The bridge I go over is closed for repairs. Hopefully next week.

Have a great day! emoticon

oh Letticia sounds like you have a wonderful support beside you doesn't those words from your son sound like you won a million dollars. So now it will be easier to keep things up and we are here cheering you on as well.
Stacy it is good to be feeling better I have been feeling yucky for months and it seems like it is trying to come back still however the last cold spell is coming up but not as cold so maybe it will not be too bad. At work they all wanting me up and working but not near them could not figure where to stand if my work. So lets all hope we are up and feeling well enough to keep some of our hard work here going

Hey gang!! Hope all is well!! Welcome new members!! This is an awesome group!!

My allergies are starting to kick in!! Sneezing left and right....may need to go get something to help! Tomorrow's workout...not sure what to expect...sure it will be tough though!!

One more week and I get to get ready to start a new job!! I so can't put into words how ecstatic I am to be leaving my current workplace!!! One of the most unhealthiest places to work!! I'll be sad to say goodbye to my guys, but overall happy happy!! Got a lot to do but the countdown begins!! I've been looking for quite a while and God placed me in a good place I think...:)

Hope you all had a good weekend....I'll let you know what kind of torture my trainer will give! Ha!!

Hey welcome Letticia! We are all about living healthfully and taking care of ourselves, so you have joined a great group.

It feels great taking care of our bodies with healthful food, water, and physical activity. The fact that our clothes fit better is a bonus!!

Letticia: That made me tear up! emoticon

I know that feeling! My son is now 20... He told me the other day I look better than his friend's mom's! lol ...

My hubby has been more flirty supportive since I'm becoming more fit and toned these days...
Their comments help a lot bc the rest of my family (on my side) really are not big on PRAISE.. *sigh*

My FIL made a comment a couple of weeks ago that made me feel so good as he bragged on my changes. emoticon

emoticon Letticia and just do your best as each day comes. We are here for ya!

emoticon Hi everyone! Thanks for sharing! emoticon

Maria, I'm sure you're glad to be back home and start your routine again.
You did great though while on vacation! You still made time for the gym! emoticon

**********************
I'm gonna make this last week of March count.

Since I was sick last week: UP on weigh in..173.0 Guess the week off from being ill/no exercise and meds did a number on me.?. My cycle is due at any time, so I am truly thinking this is water.. (I hope!?)

I'm gonna focus on as many exercise days as possible this last week, staying in my calorie range and just concentrate on the "fitness." I'm not gonna worry about the # on the scale at the last weigh in. (it will be my cycle week anyway.)

I'm just glad that will be over by the start of April and the Skinny Jeans Challenge and Using my new Leslie Walk It Off in 30 work out.

Thanks for the updates ladies! Like BETTERME8913 I am just focusing on better eating habits. I have to do so many hours of gym time for my fitness and nutrition class so that is a bonus for now until summer time comes and I have to make myself work out. emoticon Just in the last two weeks I can see a big difference in my body. My 15 year old son told me I am getting skinny last night, it took everything in me not to cry because you can barely get my teenagers to notice anything that doesn't involve them. I am going to try and see if a class involving gym time is offered in the summer. I need that push, lol.

Hey ladies! Great reading your updates and getting inspiration from your posts. The long day on the road back from Florida was awful for healthy eating and I am getting my head back in the game now -- that feels good -- after doing so well on vacation I succumbed to the junk my family was eating in the car. There was half a donut and some curly fries involved…blech, sounds gross just thinking about it now. And the last night of vacay, the group decided to go to a Mexican restaurant….OMG…its like my kryptonite. Well, I am soooooo glad to be home now and I am falling back into my healthful routine.

I love reading about your shopping experiences. I love to shop and it's even better going after you've dropped a few pounds and toned up a bit. That reminds me of a short term goal I want to add. I want to get into a size eight. I'm sitting at a ten right now. I wonder how much I need to lose to make that happen. Hmmm.

Oh, Grace, send me some of your job hunting mojo! I applied for a job last week. I retired from the Navy in September after 20 years in public affairs. I've had a little time off, just taking some refresher courses, but I'm ready to get back to working again.

Alright, make it a great day!!!!

Maria

emoticon Letticia, my weight loss has been slow but steady. I have been losing about a pound a week, but over time it adds up and not gaining it back so far. I focus more on eating better and making better choices and weight loss follows.

welcome Letticia glad to have you join here at the round table with us .All these ladies here are so full of energy I feel like I just sit around not doing anything. Of course I decided I January I needed to get serious. And I hope to be down a few more pounds by next month a few of us girls at the fire department decided to try to get a few pounds off by mid April. Me I am the oldest so I just tell them I am just going to wiggle around the house more of course at my house my big dogs must join in with me so extra wiggling starts just to keep standing while the are bouncing around look my dogs they weight a 100 each has decided that the bed is a trampoline one day it was so funny even though I wish they were not on there I was trying to sleep but a burst of energy must have hit both of them maybe I should try to harness it for myself when I need a extra boost.

Re: Me .. I lost 24 lbs last year .. here at Spark!

(I'm 5'8) I started at 197.7 lbs. (Size: TIGHT 16 and 2X Tops)

I'm now a tight size 12 and XL tops.

My ticker is set up for a 4 lb goal/weight loss each month..
My Goal weight is 148 so I have 24 more lbs to lose!

I'm going to change that though bc the 4 lb goal has not worked out yet and is depressing me! LOL

Sorry, I'm new to the team. May I ask how long it took you to get your weight down to what you are now? You are almost there and that is amazing!

well most of the times Stacy when I head to swim it is all family and don't laugh at my parents every body has their dogs there and trust me that is the ones that swim the most during the daytime but if I go later in the day it is usually quitter there. Like you a burn easier than when I was growing up then I was a fish we live swimming every year till late in the year.. But when my dogs are there they can not quite get the nerve to just go for it the just stand at the steps I can do it I can do t then try to take a step and you must swim then so they run back up turn back around to try again. If they were not so big it maybe easier to help them but I can' carry a hundred pound dog that is afraid and trembling to no ends. Trust me when Trapper John was a puppy we loved walking over to the side lean over fall in we would grab me and help take him back to the side he would jump out only to run back to the side and fall back in. Now he stands on the first step and he looks like he is doing the pee pee dance he wants to so bad but he ain't it is not his small kiddy pool we have at home but take him to the lake he wants to at the lake I may step in but that's about it I never even take a suit. But I have a couple to take to Mom's. So really it is not the same family don't care. However trying on clothes I can't wait for the fun I look at the store every day that I pass it thinking I should make a trip to go shopping for clothes but so far have not just having fun in my closet right now and it is cheaper and when I put it on people make comments on my new clothes so can't beat it.

Jul's: swim suit season isn't a big deal for me bc the past few years I pick out colorful printed trunks from the men's dept! emoticon I wish they would make these for women that want to cover up!
I then find a close match or solid color in bikini top and 2 years ago I found the perfect swim top. It looks like a t-shirt but fits loose and it's swim suit material. I need to wear that anyway bc I'm so fair (got my PawPaw's Irish in me, so I just burn anyway..never tan.)
Plus, on mom's side we have lots of flat-moles and I will freckle bad too!)

Lots of sun screen and want to be covered up anyway.

Grace: emoticon and emoticon

Work was very busy last night!

Hope it's like that tonight! Makes the time pass and great tips!

Have a GREAT Saturday! emoticon

Hey gang.... Sorry I've been MIA this week...so much to do at work to get ready to leave (so incredibly happy about that!!!). I did go to the gym Wednesday and today and did 50 minutes on the treadmill....I so wanted to go home but I went. Want to go shopping this weekend for an outfit for my first day on my new job...hopefully it will be fun with the inches I have l lost!!!

So very tired...plan to sleep in a bit tomorrow! Next week is going to be absolutely crazy!!!

yes Stacy that is a wonderful feeling trying on new things and better yet find you can go down another size. Yes I would love going shopping once again however right now I am just searching through what I have kept and I am starting to be able to wiggle in them now I can not say looking great as the sizes go down your imperfections seem to grow as your size decreases. I do know even when the size keeps getting smaller one thing does not move and that is bone when I got down to the 130's years earlier I looked like I wore a 7 but it was a 12 with most of my bones sticking out people where insisting that I eat for to small. But I tell you during that point I loved shopping every day finding the next cute outfit to purchase not quite the same thrill in the larger sizes at the store. So now must get ready for swim suit season is upon us

emoticon Jul's! Isn't that feeling wonderful?!

emoticon

I'm feeling better about myself for the first time in a very LONG time!

I found some things at Super Target yesterday and the cutest pair of soft mint flats so shopping is becoming fun again. I haven't had that in a long time. I look so forward to my new top coming in from JCPENNY and then going to Charming Charlie to get the costume jewelry!

At Target I got 3 tanks/cami's that are cute.. Turquoise, Navy and a Soft Mint with lace.

I can make the 1 top coming look different and then I now need to find a white top I can wear the tanks with. (more shoes to change the look up) emoticon

I also had a $3 Off coupon for Walk it Off in 30 with Leslie. Looks fun!

On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday you'll burn BIG calories as you walk the BURN 30 program!
It's SUPER-CHARGED fitness walking!

Then on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday you'll build strength as you take on every major

Stacy I wish that I could say that the elastic pants are a thing of the past but I can not I wear scrubs at work and they are all elastic that I know of. However I am working on getting out of them for the things I wear away from work which will be one step at a time. Last night at work I told some that I needed some pants that allowed a bigger belly but less in the legs in my leg area I have plenty of room even with big calves. I am looking forward myself to hitting the stores once again the fun of trying on things to see that you have lost some weight. The last time I lost a lot of weight at work I wore a 2x scrub one day I turned my uniform did not so a nurse offered me some mediums I thought I am sure I will not be able to squeeze in them my gosh put them on and I still had plenty to spare I wore a small. That made me laugh just thinking how big they 2x's must have looked on me. I still laugh when I think about it and today I am wearing those mediums with room to spare so go figure I could have a blast shopping once again. Jul

That is great news on your new threads Stacy! I remember how it feels to slip into some old jeans again that I'd outgrown. I have some as a matter of fact that should fit pretty soon! I also remember that awful feeling of trying to slip into some jeans that have grown too snug. Ugh, I hate that feeling. When I've slimmed down in the past (I've had three kids) I LOVED getting back into old clothes. When I started this slim down earlier this month put on my shorts from two summers ago. The were rather snug, but I could put them on -- I'm looking forward to putting them on again when they fit the way they used too. And they will!!!

I'm so glad to be out of my elastic pants! That was a great day when I was able to give all that stuff to Goodwill ... Size 16's and 2X tops!

(I started my journey at 197.7 lbs)

I'm now a 12 in jeans/pants and with most tops/blouses a Large or maybe still an XL

I have come a long way for sure!

emoticon Have A Great Day Everyone!

Super Target Day here...LOL

Gotta get all stocked up with groceries.

Back to work for me on Fri-Sat. as well.

Odd as it seems yes just putting on clothing is a excellent way is see if you are losing or gaining weight and blue jeans is one that does not have much play in the material unless you have some with elastic and then it is not. So that is great to find some that don't look bad congratulations Stacy and hope you find some tops soon to help ascent the jeans. Yesterday I wore a pair of jeans that did not have elastic in tem the first in a while however the shirt I put on with just made my roll so easy to see of course it have been just in my eyes I am my worst critic by a mile sometimes.

Clothes Shopping Adventure at the Mall Yesterday:

I truly don't have a "wardrobe" bc it's 1 pair of jeans, 2 pairs of capri pants and a few tops I can make look like different outfits with colored tanks I wear under them to make them look different as well as costume jewelry and stylish scarfs.

I hang on to stuff way too long bc I got soooo sick and traumatized from going up and down * up and down!

I finally have come to a point now where I'm tired of WAITING for my Goal Day...

I tell myself now: "You are ALIVE and BREATHING right now ... In the moment...

Live NOW and ENJOY the Journey. YES, shopping is still going to be frustrating and a little depressing but take your time and find the right pieces (that luck and good timing will bring) and feel pretty now where you are and feel accomplished now (after losing 24 lbs last year) and go from there."

Like yesterday at the mall. Jeans are ALWAYS my issue and just about bring me to tears. Yesterday I found the perfect pair right off the bat!

Dillard's is having a huge sale on NYDJ label.. (the are unique and I've never been able to afford them.. They cater to those with issues. They are soft like Pajama Jeans and don't create a muffin top. They have the "slimming technology" in tummy, hips and thighs.)

I got my pair for $45 !!!! (Original price $120!)

I'm still not thrilled about my inner thighs but they still looked pretty decent. The rest of my legs and my butt looks awesome in them! emoticon Good enough for me!

Before, I would have put them back just bc of my inner thighs.

My shockingly crazy issue yesterday were TOPS and BLOUSES! emoticon

I'm still dazed and confused! emoticon

I tried on tons of stuff from every store! Could not find one dang top!

The style this year seems to be Sheer and Short in the front/long in back.. I want/need the complete opposite! I want my tummy covered and want to show off my new butt.

With everything being so sheer, you need a cami or tank under it and that just made me more bulky looking.

PLUS - the new material everyone seems to be using is the form fitting type and that is a NO GO re: me! I do not want my midsection roll emphasized or my pookie tummy!

I did find a few tops that looked great like Reba's Line and Liz Claiborne but I cannot pay $60 - $80 for 1 blouse! That broke my heart!

I indeed gave up when the last top I tried on by Liz Claiborne looked great and was on sale.. $45.. It was denim like with cuffed drawn short sleeves and had a great cut to it and not full button down. I could have left some buttons open and used different scarfs, tanks and jewelry to make it 5 new outfits! Only 1 in my size and I found a freakin' hole in it!!!

SCREAMS! emoticon

So... Back to square 1 trying to spice up my closet a bit.

At least I'm trying though... A big step 4 me! emoticon

I will check out Super Target tomorrow before grocery shopping there and maybe I will find a blouse or two? Most often I'm never able to buy clothes there bc they cater to skinny people. (Same for walmart.. Their plus size clothing is always unattractive and tent-like)
*roll eyes*

If I don't find anything - I will try Kohl's next week...

I'm so anxious to find some new tops so I can use my gift card for Charming Charlie!

OMG I love that store! All the jewelry, scarfs, purses and shoes you could ever imagine!

Hey team…we left on vacation yesterday and I stayed on plan. Today, not so much with a dinner out, but I'm okay with that considering my routine is out of sorts. I did get a three mile run in. Tonight we stopped by the store and I picked up some fruit and oatmeal and waterl so i can make tomorrow a more on plan day. And I'm posting and checking in on Spark to reel myself back to the plan!

Get gang! Yep I am sore from yesterday's workout, particularly my arms, upper back and sides. Guess it worked something! emoticon ... Apparently the trainer can't meet tomorrow so he is going to make up with the other two ladies and Thursday and me on Friday! That could be bad as I will have all his attention for torture!! Lol!! I like it though.

Thank you Stacy and Betterme for the encouragement and cheers!! It helps me a lot! Now off to have a not so good dinner at the bowling alley! Will at least go to the gym from my normal 5-6 tomorrow and do cardio at least. :)

emoticon Grace!

emoticon Karen.. I will have to find that commercial! emoticon

I have a busy day ahead and this will sound so silly but I'm a little nervous as well.

It's time for me to go shopping for a few things! - I hate shopping for clothes with my weight issues! emoticon

I have to get a pair of jeans and that's the main reason I'm freaking out a little.

My inner thighs at this time are so fatty and misshaped. I have one pair of boot cut jeans (size 12) that looks fairly decent bc I was able to get a pair that fit me well but were also a little loose in the legs.

I need a pair of regular jeans to wear with flats or sneakers. They make everything so tight now-a-days or try to make them all "skinny jeans" and I look horrible in them at this time.
I feel like a wrapped sausage! emoticon

I also need to find a new top and a pair of capri pants.

I will also be getting a pair of sneakers and flats.

I will enjoy all the walking at the mall. emoticon

It will be neat as far as that goes bc I haven't been there since we've moved back home..

**Fingers Crossed** I can find what I need!

emoticon I just wanted to mention, that Grace you are doing so great with those workouts and glad you found a trainer you trust! Maybe I should get a trainer to get me motivated, will think about it.

This is silly, but thought of a commercial I saw tonight and laughed so hard. There are these three body builders running down the street in a city with just shorts and tennis shoes on. They go around the block, more totally fit guys just in shorts join them no shirts either, then around another block more fit guys join then, until there are a ton of totally fit guys running, they are all running towards a shop and it says "Spray Tans" on it! LoL! Then it said, go daddy, get business or something, too funny! I wish I had their motivation to work out constantly, sure looks to pay off! emoticon

Hey gang! Got through my workout tonight and it was around one ! My trainer just got certified in TRX, so guess what we did??!! I struggle with done of those exercises on the own let alone to use suspension things (planks and stuff!). I may have to adapt some of those next time!!! I am really hoping my trainer can come up with something when I start my new job or maybe the hours will work out... Fingers crossed!! I want to keep going with it and keep my current trainer, as I really trust him (which isn't easy for me!!)

You guys are awesome and I appreciate reading all of your posts!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! emoticon

I have the week off from school for Spring Break. Going to spend it cleaning my house and getting back on track. I got a notice in the mail on Saturday from the HR department of my school district saying I may not get laid off again for the school year 2014 - 15. Keep your fingers crossed it sticks. Last year I got the same notice and then 3 weeks later they sent me a registered letter telling me I was being laid off.

Stacy - Glad you are feeling better.

Maria - Great job on the 5k. That is awesome.

Wishing everyone a great day.
Mary

Good morning ladies and gents (if we have any?) 5k was fun. Hooray! It feels good to reach a goal. I hope you are feeling better Stacy. Being sick is no fun.

Have a great day! Wet and rainy here :(

Day 2 1/2 of Bladder Infection... Still dealing with the discomfort, bloating & cramping.
*Yuck!*

Hoping sometime today the meds will kick in and help me to feel better.

I cannot exercise (which I miss), so I have to concentrate even more on every snack and meal. Gotta keep cals on the lower end of range.

I hope you feel better soon Stacy.
I'm just checking in real fast this morning before I head out to run my 5K. I'm totally excited and for some reason nervous? It's only the second organized race I've ever done. The last was a turkey trot a couple years ago. It's been a personal goal of mine so I am excited. It's only supposed to be fun, not serious racing here, but it will burn at least 300 calories :)

Trying to work with my trainer on how this may work when I start my new job...prayers that we can find a way to keep this thing going!!

Today I did 45 minutes in the treadmill...burning like 485 calories!! Then some abs!!! Gonna keep going!!!

Good morning,

Wednesday I joined Curves, had my first workout yesterday. I had a good time!! The now have Zumba and Jillian Michael classes they didn't have before. I'm going to try a Zumba class soon.

We are off today, it's a 1/2 day of school, so we don't have to make breakfast or lunch.

We are going out with my parents tonight to celebrate my mom's Birthday. We are going to a buffet but I'm going to be good!! I'm very motivated!!

Hope all is well and have a Fabulous Friday my friend! emoticon

Hello!! I'm Linda/Lyn from St. Louis, MO USA!

Live, laugh, love, relax and play!!

I love life!!!

Hey gang!! Today was an off day for me as I had to work late today...back to the gym for cardio tomorrow. :)

Guess what??!! I got the job I applied for! Yay!! My last day at my job is the 28th and start my new job on the 31st. I may have to talk with my trainer and other group members as I think I will be working til 5....hoping they can make adjustments to the time as I don't want to stop this challenge!! They knew I applied for a job. I work til 5 now but I will have a farther commute...fingers crossed. Will be talking to the trainer tomorrow...here's hoping something will work out!!!

emoticon Mary:
It has been rough at times for me bein' the oldest. LOL
It is neat though in many other ways.
Especially bc my son felt as if they were his brother & sisters too! (instead of Aunts/Uncle)

Hubby and I have been together 23 years (June 18th, Married 21) and they were so little/young when Cory was born!

2 are 6-7 yrs. apart and with last sis, 11 years..

They were all in elementary school when he was born. emoticon

They "grew up together" and even played with the same action figures/toys.. HA!

Hubby and I always referred to them as the "kids" and so did Cory. He never thought of them as Aunts/Uncle..

Hi everyone! emoticon

Today is Super Target Day.. Gotta run plenty of errands as well.
