Hi Everyone. Hope you are having a blessed day.

Ute - I am happy to learn that the changes at your workplace are beneficial, as I know the wrong people in a work situation can make everyone's work harder. Not to mention give the client's the wrong impression of the whole work team. I will continue to pray that the changes are for the best. When you have spare time (if that is something anyone has these days), I would love to find out if you did indeed attend a basket class, and how it went for you.

Judith - I continue to pray that your health issues are better.

I have someone coming for a basket class in a few minutes so need to end this here.

Good morning, friends!
Thanks for the encouragement, Judith! Hope all is well in your world!
Eileen, thanks for the prayers. I believe the sudden upheaval at work is due to lots of prayers for the hospital. It looks like it is undergoing a much needed spiritual redecorating lol. The people who are leaving were definitely not helpful to us in work ethic and morale. You gotta turn up the heat to purify gold, right? There is a new girl starting today, and I will be one of her trainers. I am very excited about meeting he.

To all a great day!

Didn't realize it has been so long since I had stopped by this group. Ute, I have been missing you greatly and am glad that you are okay. I had been thinking recently that you it has been a long time, and glad that your absence was not caused by health reasons. Being busy at work is understandable when you have coworkers leave and have to cover some of the work they had done previously. I will pray that replacement workers are found so that everyone shares in the work load.

We have been having very cold weather recently and even had some snow yesterday. It did not last on the ground, but even so, I don't like snow at the end of April.

Take care everyone. My prayers go out for you to have a healthy and happy week.
Eileen

Evening Hello Team

Wasn't here much on the weekend as I had my grandkids with me and heaps of other things going on which kept this gal busy. Hope you all had a Blessed and Happy Weekend...

Wishing you all a Fantastic Monday and Week ahead...

Let's keep pushing on together and take responsibility for our actions and attitudes and pull up our boot straps and decide that today will be one that starts us on the road to healthier living, eating right, daily fitness and staying within our calorie range.

Let's Do It....Are you with me? emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi Judith and Eileen,
I see that it has been quite a while since I posted here. We had 4 out of 13 people leave almost at the same time, and we are just desperate at work (veterinary receptionists). So along with being the Motivational Leader for a Challenge Team here on Spark, and adding extra days of work so my co-workers don't all go crazy and also leave, I was so busy. And as always, grabbing hold of Jesus hand and shining His light in the face of the impossible helps me stay calm and sane and spreading love and cheer. However, other areas of my life are taking a toll. Not my workouts, as I find that instead of collapsing on the couch, a nice 40 minute workout is just what I need to leave it all behind.

I hope you ladies are doing fine, I know you both were struggling with quite some health issues over the past months and I keep you in my prayers always.

I will try to catch up on past posts to see what I missed, but in the meantime, sending some love to you all. (and anyone I might have missed)

Hugs,
Ute

Where has this week gone? I did have a mini class reunion about 25 miles from where I live now. It was fun to get together for lunch with classmates, and hopefully they are planning to do it again.

Hope your weekend is going well.

Today is a holiday here in New England--Patriot's Day. The weather is quite warm, but it has started to cloud in. There is rain predicted for later into tomorrow.

Yes, the dog did get a bath yesterday, and she smell good. I have spent a good bit of time trying to brush her out, and get rid of any mats. Because she is half cocker spaniel and half cavalier king charles spaniel she has extremely long fur anywhere that has truly grown out and has not had to be cut because of mats. She is funny since she growls or talks to me all the time I am brushing her, but if I stop she bats my hand with her foot trying to get me to start brushing again. Treats are a definite part of her allowing me to groom her.

I hope everyone is having a good Monday.
Eileen

Eileen, happy your weather is warm and your day is lovely, our weather has been lovely too; I hear you, it makes me smile as I remember the days when my dogs needed a bath, most often I got a 2nd shower with all the shaking and squirming trying they did to get out of that bath...yes, memories! emoticon have a great day and week ahead....

Good Morning All,

Cheering you on for a great day and week ahead...

Absolutely beautiful weather here. It promises to be a relative warm day, so I am thinking that a bath for the dog is the order of the day. She definitely won't like it, although she resigns herself to the fact that it is going to happen once she is in the tub. Since flea and tick season is upon us, I am going to try out a formula with essential oils that was recommended to me and will hopefully eliminate the need to use harmful, toxic items to keep her from picking up ticks especially.

Happy Sunday everyone, have a great day.
Eileen

Thanks, Judith. Your support, as usual, is greatly appreciated. I have always had the inclination to push myself regardless how I felt, but today, I gave myself permission to let my body tell me what it feels like doing. I think I am doing very well, but I cannot make it without taking some pain medication unless I want to be a martyr. Because of that I really need to just let me body concentrate on healing (I will get a short walking video in, maybe), but other than that I just want to relax whenever needed.

I noticed when I got up this morning that my face is still swollen and it is starting to show bruising along the lower jaw. This is absolutely normal, but I feel as if people will wonder what happened if I go out in public.

Hope everyone is having a good day. It is beautiful here and makes me want to get out and start doing yard work. I will wait for a few days though for it to get a bit warmer.
Eileen

Finally the sun is shining and it is starting to warm up. I would love to get outside and start doing some yard work, but I had two teeth extracted yesterday. I am having a relatively easy time pain-wise, but I am supposed to put warm, moist compresses on my check very regularly so that pretty much keeps me inside. I have done some errands which got a few steps in exercise wise. However, my Spark Activity Tracker had a burp or something this morning and didn't record anything before 10:00 AM when I took it apart, made sure the battery hadn't loosened, and put it back together. I knew it couldn't be the battery itself as I had just changed it. It seems to be working now, but I lost the walk I did with my dog, and a lot of walking in a parking lot into a store, etc. Hopefully I will get a short walk in later, just to record some type of fitness today so I don't loose that streak as well.

Hope everyone is having a good day.
Eileen

Hello Everyone--The weather here is brilliantly sunny, but still unseasonably cold. I have just finished staining some baskets in an unheated room, and am glad I only had a couple.

When I was walking my dog early in the morning I did notice a sign of spring. I live across from a "mill pond" that is home to Canadian geese during the summer. Many early mornings these geese fly over my field as I walk the dog and fly into the pond--I saw a pair this week which were the first geese I have seen this year. I feel this is a promise that the weather will soon be warm enough for them to start their nests and lay their eggs.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

My efforts to track the food I eat has paid off with a good weigh in this morning. A friend and student of mine came today, and brought Chinese food for us for lunch which didn't help, but one day will not break the effort as long as I get right back to weighing everything and make up the extra calories today by cutting back a little bit more tomorrow.

Hope everyone is getting ready to have a great weekend.

So far this week I have tracked everything that I have eaten to the best of my ability. I find the Spark nutrition tracker too slow to use on a regular basis, but I love it for finding the calories in foods like soups and casseroles. Usually if I have made a recipe, some other member of Spark has also made that recipe and gotten the calorie/nutrition breakdown. It does help in that I don't need to list every ingredient. I feel that I have lost a little weight, but I will not weigh myself too often as I think that possibly is one of the reasons I get discouraged and stop tracking everything. I am sure that there are some people who can weigh everyday, and I tell myself that it is not important if there is not a significant weight change. However, I think that I might be trying to convince myself of this fact when it isn't true. I will try a once a week weigh in for awhile and see if that helps.

Our weather here this week has been frigid--a return to winter. Today was a slight bit warmer, but I still wore my winter coat.

Hope everyone's weather is more spring-like than this.

Judith, I just read the directions under the list of ingredients for those cookies, and something must not have printed as I wrote them. I think any experienced cook would realize how to make them, but the directions should have read--Blend all ingredients together until they are well mixed. Drop by tablespoons on parchment lined cookie sheets to make approximately 32 cookies. Bake in 350 degree oven until cookie is brown and no longer sticky. Hope you class likes them.

We have returned to winter here in the northeast. In fact Sugarloaf a well known ski resort about 40 miles from my home has been making snow the last few days. I went out of town shopping today, and wore my winter down filled coat. I was none too warm and was very glad that I had worn it. It was a beautiful sunny day, but there was a wind blowing. The wind plus temperatures only in the low 30's made for a very chilly day.

Hope everyone is having warmer weather than we are.
Eileen

Judith - I entered the recipe on Spark with the intention of sharing, but I wasn't able to find it when I looked a few minutes ago, so..........

Mashed Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

3 cups (or 3 over ripe bananas) mashed
0.5 cup unsweetened applesauce
0.5 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
0.5 cup chopped raw almonds
0.25 cup skim milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
0.75 cup Ghiradelli 60% cacao Bittersweet Chocolate chips.

Blend all ingredients together on parchment paper lined pans, and bake in 350 degree oven
until brown--Approximately 15 minutes. Recipe makes about 32 cookies for 80 calories each.

A similar recipe was on Facebook, but did not have the almonds and coconut in them and called for almond milk and less applesauce. Since I am usually "doing my own slant" on a recipe, I came up with the above.

Let me know if you try them, and would suggest any changes to the recipe.

As I promised myself, I have started recording all the food that I eat today, and am having trouble not grabbing a few nuts or something else to nibble when I see it on a shelf. I know that the first few days are the hardest, and am convincing myself to just have a glass of water instead.

Hope everyone is having a good day.
Eileen

In an effort to prepare myself to start writing down everything that I eat, I have just entered one of my favorite treat recipes into the Spark recipe calculator to find out just how many calories in each cookie. There are so many times that I want something slightly sweet to finish a meal, and I have made these cookies using up some really ripe bananas in the past. (I don't like bananas once they start getting soft, so need a way to use them up.) They do not have any added sugar or fat so now that recipe is in the Spark system, and I know the nutritional value of each cookie. emoticon

Eileen; I hear you as I have been doing the same thing here, quite often I have left this off and it has shown up on my scale with my weight being up by 1.4 pounds....So today I re-commit to weighing every morsel that potentially enters my mouth; let's be accountable to each other and keep on together 1 step at a time... emoticon as we emoticon On....



Let's have a Happy & Blessed Saturday, Sparking and Shining on Together.... emoticon

I need to re-commit to weighing all that I eat. I have been having issues recently, and know that I can do much better than I have been doing. It worked when I was keeping a journal of my food consumption so I need to go back to doing that.

Hope everyone is having a good day.
Eileen
