We got more cleaning done in the yard and a lot of trash loaded to haul off, which feels/looks good/great. But because of that and the heat I didn't get any walking in today. I hate this heat!!!!

I put in over two hours of exercise today. I stink and need a shower, but I'm still excited about it!

We finally started cleaning out another out building. I will be glad when we get it all done. It will look better and then I can have my garden where I want it and it can be bigger!

We think we came up with a good punishment for our daughter. She isn't going to have much freedom over the next few months. And she is going to put in a lot of work around the house.

Aww that's quite a bummer! I did that with AOL once before it went unlimited (yes, we've had AOL for aaaages!) The bill was nearly $400! I was too young for a job so my parents just had to eat it. They didn't even cancel the service. Fortunately about two months later, AOL came out with a new plan and it became much cheaper. I feel for you, for sure!

So my positive thing for today - I'm down 17.2 lbs and I've lost (drumroll here) nearly 30 inches so far! I've lost 7 inches in my WAIST alone!! Thanks Spark People and NWA Sparkers! You've been a great inspiration - I have a long way to go still though. But we WILL do it!

She is 16 but then we have the added expense of taking her to and from a job. We just aren't sure if it would be worth it, BUT still thinking about it. We are also thinking about making her quit band. That would save a lot of gas money taking her to an from every thing. We just don't know what we are going to do! The bad part is, she has done something similar before. She has unlimited texting but she felt the need to get on the internet while she was staying with my parents helping them. My mom knew she had unlimited texting and didn't think anything about her being on the phone all the time. I JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO!

Congratulations on taking that long walk, but I feel bad for you about that phone bill!! We had that same thing happen early on when our daughters got their phones, but it was the TEXTING that killed us! We finally just got unlimited texting. It wasn't worth worrying about the money, since the bill was only about $12 higher than before. But, they had to do jobs around the house to help pay for the extra expense.

Is she old enough to have a job? If not, good luck with finding enough chores for her to earn her way out of that debt! Maybe she could become your personal fitness trainer, then it would help you both. Think of it as a LONG leap upward on the learning curve of life!! Maybe this will keep her off credit cards in the future?? A blessing in disguise, perhaps. At any rate, hang in there!!!!!

Let the good times roll!

I DIDN'T beat my daughter when I found out that she ran up the cell phone bill to $505.50, instead I yelled a little and then went for a long hot walk.

I put on a shirt that I bought nearly a year ago and it looked much better on me! I never even took it off the hanger until now. Plus, once I drop another 6/10ths of a pound I'll be down 15. It's been slow going, no exercise, not eating right, but I'm not gaining weight with all I have going on, so that's got to be SOMETHING to be proud of....right?

I was tired, it was dark, there was something on tv that I wanted to watch and I was still 800 steps short of my goal. So what did I do, I got my big butt up, grabbed a flash light and went out and walked 1000+ steps around the yard! I reached my goal!

I was in one of my "have to have sugar moods". I was at Harps and instead of candy or donuts I treated myself to some yummy sweet bing cherries. They were expensive BUT they were so good. YUMMY! Yes still high cal and high natural sugars but much better than the alternative.

I'm more relaxed now too. It all works out great.

3 good things today...I got my yard mowed before the rain...I actually got in the pool and scrubbed all the walls down (they had some algae growing) and vacuumed all the leaves and debris out (this is big cuz I hate cleaning it good) and surprisingly the water wasn't that cold so I enjoyed a good swim afterwards...I learned how to cut the rind off the orange so you just have the pulp on the edge of the slices which I like MUCH better, YUM! Oh yeah, and I found red peppers for 89 cents each, YUM! What a good day I have had!

I guess I can say that I went to the Greenland schools and spent more money than I should have to try and help save the school. I was even interviewed by the 40/29 news crew about what I thought about what was going on. I know I looked and sounded like a dork, but it was all worth it. But in the process I have shot my calories all to heck. The chicken dinners sure were good though. Back on track as of tomorrow.

I scrapped a page that I really liked. Except the letters I put on the page just really didn't go with it. Other than that I loved it. I also stayed up really late but woke up without an attitude and in a good mood! :) Hubby and I finished all of our lawns before the rain kicked in.
SO far a great day!

I'm back on my eating plan today. I think the reason I was so wiped out tired is because I was eating alot of food that wasn't giving my body the nutrition that it needs. The holidays really throw me off track. Now that I'm not eating poorly I feel so much better and its only the first day. Funny how you can feel the difference right away. I'm back on plan and drinking water. Yeah :) I'm happy about that. :)

My favorite can masher came from Wal-mart but they don't carry them any more. We have another one that we never have used that we found at Harbor Freight in Springdale.

I lost another 2 pounds this past week. Yeah for me!

Congrats on shrinking out of the dress!!
And, where did you get your can crusher? We have one, but wore out a pin on it, and it broke. emoticon

I forgot how bad those cans smell!!

My nice thing? I went to the Jones Center yesterday with Joey (DH) and youngest daughter. We scouted out all the cool FREE things to do there, and will make a fitness plan probably today. The best thing is that the childcare is free while you are there working out.

I will choose a water exercise, since I'm fighting against my bad back.

Congrats on the dress being to big! Way to go!

I got up and went outside and got some more aluminum cans mashed and a few more to go do. Then I will be done with that project and it feels good even though my legs don't at the moment!

I made it for a 2 HOUR workout tonight! I almost quit after 1.5, but since Ron wasn't finished with playing racquetball I just kept going (just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming swimming swimming - Dori) YES!

I have spent most of the day cleaning house and just now I finished mashing aluminum cans for an hour and 27 minutes. Yes I had a lot of cans.

I feel so good after getting that much accomplished! emoticon

Tammy--It doesn't do me any good to do any thing with my finger nails, I usually break one off when I do yard work. I did yesterday!

I could actually do some of my strength exercises the right way today. Before I had to modify them a little.

Nikki~ Congrats and pats on the back for sleeping in a tent all night thru the thunderstorms. I don't live far from Hickory Creek and man it was coming down hard! For your first time out you really did good! Yeah you!

Sherry ~ Congrats on getting up and doing your yard work. It always feels good to do your lawn. I never get mine done because I'm always doing someone else's and by the time I get home I am over it. LOL I know I have to get over that.

My nice thing about myself today is that I found the time to paint my finger and toe nails. I feel good about it. :) I got to take care of the "girly" side of me after I got my work and workout in for the day.

I have to remember to stop and think.

Way to go, team!

My nice thing (not sure how nice it is) is that I stayed in a tent all night on Friday night out at Hickory Creek (ALL the way through those nasty thunderstorms)!!

Did I mention that I've only slept out in a tent in the backyard before this? :)

Let the good times roll!

I didn;t want to but I got my cardio in today anyway. I feel so much better about myself having it done and out of the way. I could have easily just said well I went to work and most of that is my exercise BUT I stuck with it and made myself exercise besides work. emoticon

I have to remember to stop and think.

my positive about myself today is that I have stuck with getting my cardio in before having to go anywhere else. I'm really happy and feel so much better about myself. :)

Carrie ~ Congrats on the getting your hikes in. I hope Frank's foot is feeling better so you all can make your fittness goals this week.

Let's see: Today, my positive is that I have hiked for five straight days...Sat. Sun, Mon, Tues, and Wed. It is so awesome to have accomplished that! I feel more fit and feel like I can move easier. I am suppose to hike tonight and Friday night too. That was my hubby's idea and our goal. But, his foot is hurting...he thinks it is bruised so I am not sure we will make it today. I may have to pop in a video... we will see!

1st just let me say to:

BunnyFooFoo: Congrats on your inches lost. That's awesome progress!

Jana: You win the 20 kid birthday party survivor award! That's a big thing! I bet they were all very grateful for your help.

Paula: I bet the curls looked beautiful.......I'v always loved your hair. SIGH I just wish mine would grow out to look 1/2 as pretty as yours. Then I'd be happy.

Carrie: Its awesome that your logging your food intake to make sure your getting the correct amount of calories. Yeah you!

Vanessa: Being to work on time is my Achilles heal. I have done alot better but my kids can basically get themselves ready and I'm still a few minutes late. You kicked butt! All 3 kids ready to go and got there with time to spare? That is awesome!

My positive thing(s) about myself today? I woke up early to get my cardio in before anyone else was up. We went to Susan's for breakfast/brunch and I halfed everything on my plate. Since it is my anniversary today I decided to eat whatever I want but keep portions within reason. So far so good! My makeup looks awesome, I'm wearing a pair of tommy hilfiger khakis that were really tight around my waist and now they fit really good. Inches are gone and I am very happy about that! When we were at Susan's our normal waitress told me that I looked really good. It made me feel GREAT to know that someone else noticed and was truley happy for me. She said she could tell I was losing weight. I just wanted to jump up and hug her but I thanked her and left a great tip. She is an awesome waitress and one of my favorites there.

So far a beautiful day!

Way to go, Tammy! I can usually only do that if I'm making something I DON'T like to eat (like pecan pie). LOL

Here's my nice thing... since January,
I have lost 1 inch off my waist and 5 inches off my hips! Although I don't really understand why I'm NOT losing weight (as a matter of fact, I've gained about 4 pounds since starting with Spark), I'm glad that my body is starting to shrink!

I guess I'm saying bye-bye to some body fat.

emoticon

Remember that song, Bye, Bye, Bye? We could make up some lyrics for weight/body fat loss. emoticon

Let the good times roll!

The thing I am proud of about myself today is a FIRST EVER. Mike wanted me to make chocolate chip cookies for him and his wally ball buddies for tonight. I made a triple batch. I like to mix each batch before baking them because I broke my blender on Mike's father's day icing for his cake. Now I only have one beater that kind of works if the mix isn't real heavy. I made them ALL and have a gallon zip lock bag in the kitchen for the guys at the house. I have not even tasted one cookie nor the dough. NOT ONE! I am amazed because I am a taste before you bake/cook type girl. No dough , no fresh baked chocolate chip cookies, not even a taste of it on the spoon or beater. I rinsed my hands in soapy dishwater if it got on my fingers. Now I have to tell you I have NEVER accomplished that EVER. I remembered a post in my blog I put about stopping a bad action. Stop the thought before it leads to something you will not be happy about. I changed my mind and told myself that I do not eat that way anymore. Plus the trident gum I had to chew in order to follow thru with not munching on the really did the trick. Yeah I'm so happy! I can;t tell you how many times I had fallen off plan for at least a couple of weeks or more just by telling myself that it will be ok just to have a bite. I know myself and know I have no self control. Trident Gum and changing the thoughts will really help me when it comes down to these kind of times.
I even had to bake late and missed a regular dinner time. I made sautéed zucchini, squash with red onion wrapped in a crepe and then made a dessert crepe stuffed it with sliced strawberries, blueberries and then a dollop of cool whip. Talk about YUMMY. Low fat and lower carb plus the crepes count as a protein. I'm posting it in the new link if any of you want to try it. I love them!
I feel so powerful! Now its off to get my 10,000 steps for the day. Right now its 9 and I only have 3500 in. I didn't mow with Mike because he wanted me to bake. I opted for the easier job today. lol

I have to remember to stop and think.

That's a lot of money for a bike! But if you'll use it A LOT, then it might just be worth it. My boys' racing bikes were very expensive too, but they only weigh a couple of lbs each. I lvoe to bike, but have a cheapy that weighs a ton.

If it was me, I'd go for shoes, really good shoes for hiking or walking or running! You can walk ANYWHERE!

And maybe make the bike a reward to yourself?

I went bike shopping today. I found one that I love at the Bike Shop in downtown Springdale! Now, I'm trying to justify spending $600 on myself... haven't bought it yet, but am VERY tempted...

It would help get the weight off, right?

Carrie,
I'm impatiently waiting to hit the 20 lbs mark as well - may in two or three weeks for me. I'm a really slow loser... it took me a month to lose 3 lbs! that's just craziness, but I'll keep trying and trying...

Way to go Nessa with resisting that ice cream and getting to work on time! Woot!

And, Paula, I bet your hair looks great with curls in it! I am sure it looks cute up in a pony with curls. Love that thick hair....my is so baby fine.

My positive thought today is that I have lost another 2 pounds....YAY!!! I can't wait till I hit the 20 mark....maybe next week??? Or at least in two weeks for sure.

I have one more thing...my father-in-law is visiting and he and my husband really love their ice cream. I don't really crave it or anything, but its hard not to eat it when its here. :( So, tonight while they were eating their big ole bowls, I wanted one really bad, but I didn't eat any!! Yay!! I had an ice cream sandwich instead which only has 170 calories. I feel really good today. :)

haha Way to go, Paula! lol I find myself a lot of times getting to the knee and stopping because I never wear shorts anyway and who cares? haha

My positive thought for today is that I made it to work on time. It was my first day back in 3 weeks and I took all 3 kids with me instead of 2, and even though I stayed up late, we still got up on time and made it there with time to spare. :)

Positive thought: I actually logged my breakfast today and I am going to log all my food today and focus a little more on calories to make sure I am not going above 1200. Hoping that will help increase my weight loss.... I also had two 16.9 oz bottles of water already this morning and working on a third....wahoo!!! Let's have a gr8 week girlies!
