It's been a rough month. Lots of stress and unfortunately I did not plan to eat as well as I should and let the calorie counting slip. Today was my first day back to counting calories. It went well and I feel better about taking care of myself. Making healthy choices one day at a time!

I joined this team about a month ago because we are moving back to Pensacola in November. I have been a sparkler since 2007. I lost 80 pounds by 2010 but in the past two years have sadly to say gained most of it back. I have been in Pensacola for the past week helping my daughter move and had high hopes of putting my blinders on and let nothing detour me from healthy eating and exercise. Well, I have not done well at all. Coming from Washington State; the weather change is going to take some getting use too again and talk about the restaurants we do not have on Whidbey Island. Let's just say my daughter and I have been trying out a few new places to eat. I sprained my ankle helping with the move so I have not been able to do exercise as I planned. I will be leaving here on Wednesday to head back to WA until the first week of November when hubby and I begin our journey down here. He is retiring from the Navy after putting in 30 years. I am hoping that as we begin this transition in our lives that I will once again get back to the Spark Lifestyle I had and loose this weight for good. I am tired of being a "fat" person.
PS: Carol, I can't wait to meet you in person. You are such an inspiration.

I'm excited for the weekend...grandkiddies are coming to town! WooHoo!

I'm also excited about Halloween. We went to the Spirit store last night. I bought 2 costumes! Yeh...I'm excited!

Still hot out, but I feel the change in the air. Fall is coming.

I'm enjoying my day off, did my workout, took the dogs for a nice long walk, cut up a beautiful seedless watermelon. Coffee on the patio! Nice!

I am fortunate to have a job where I could stay home today. Hubby had to go in. I got a good workout in this morning. It's always harder to eat right when I don't have work to distract me.

Hope all of you are safe and sound. Take care!

I think we are in for a rainy week. We are gassed up and groceries are bought. I don't think it is going to be too bad....but I hope this isn't the start of lots of storms ahead.

I had a great Saturday with my grands...such a gorgeous day for playing outside with the little ones.

We're watching Isaac heading this way. I went grocery shopping this morning and WalMart was already crazy busy, and there were lines waiting for gas at whatever that gas station is in front of WalMart (Gulf Breeze).

I got a turkey to cook in advance, and some of those Bagel Thins which I use for sandwiches, fruit, etc. I paused at the chocolate, but managed to resist. ;)

Everybody be safe!

So, anyone else getting great ideas about new projects now that school has started?

I bought a new pair of great shoes yesterday. I'm going to count those as my "new school clothes" even though I haven't gone to school in years!!

Totally agree...I haven't looked into the coaching thing...even the free trial. I can't imagine how it could be any better than what I have already found here. I do hope that SP hasn't changed their introductory/getting started period now that the coaching option is available.

I'm enjoying a lazy Sunday...did lots of house cleaning yesterday...relaxing today. We didn't quite finish the mowing yesterday...so I may tackle that later if the rain stays away.

I was a little surprised to see the "coach" idea pop up when I logged on this morning.

I agree with you, Carol. If SP had come with a "free trial" and then a payment, I wouldn't have stuck around to look at all of the great tools available. When we see a mini-informerical on TV, we always laugh about the "but, wait" part of the ad. I really appreciate that SP hasn't surprised me with any "but, wait" or "free trial" ideas.

I appreciate the "coach" idea, but, to be honest, the SP site has plenty of resources available with amazing people who will always help out. In other words, YOU GUYS ROCK!!

Well that's not bad. I do worry that new sparkers will be be turned off when they see there is something you have to pay for. If I had seen that when I first joined, I might have walked away from SP all together...thinking it's just like everything else...it's free unless you want the whole program.

We saw the valcano girl at Margaritaville in Biloxi fall from about 18 feet up onto a hard wood floor last night. It was awful. A local newspaper over there said she was ok, But I have my doubts...she hit that floor hard. It was awful. Been thinking about her all night and all day.

Thanks Kelly...the scale has not been kind to me in the last 2 weeks. I can't blame it all on the weight lifting. Eating too much on the weekends is catching up with me. I've done ok this weekend...so far...maintaining instead of gaining.

How's everyone doing?

I started lifting weights again...and it always makes the scale go UP to start with. Muscles are sore...it's time for me to get weight lifting imbedded into my daily lifestyle.

Been on vacation for 10.5 days. Haven't blogged or sparked... I don't have to say any more do I?
And so I am BACK ON THE WAGON as of yesterday.
I do have good things to report though:
Had a lovely time with my kids.
Went to Busch Gardens (amusement park) got rained out but it was NICE just sharing that time with the fam.
Had a nice cookout...rained on that too. lol
Showed a native Chicagoan how we do it in Maryland...steamed CRABS! Of course.
Had guests in my home for 5.5 days...still got one. :)
Hanging in there...but the scale has gone bizerk.


If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the answer.

Did everyone have a good 4th? My husband and I had company in town for the past 6 days. My eating was not so great. I did however fit in some workouts at the YMCA.
Looking forward to making a real effort this week.
For the 4th, I took my brother in law and his wife to Rosie O' Grady's in Seville Quarter. We had a good time singing along and watching the fireworks going off all around us.
My husband is Active Duty Air Force and made sure to remind us that Freedom is not free! So grateful for the freedom we have in America and the opportunity to live here!

I had a really tough week last week. I started back working out today. I went to the Y, ran and walked steep incline intervals. It felt great!
I haven't been tracking my food very well. I have been making healthy choices most of the time.
Tomorrow I plan to track everything that passes my lips and to work out at the Y. I hope I can make it to a Zumba class. :)
Thanks for sharing your experience using flax. I am definitely going to try it out!

Hi Dottie...good to see you.

We went to the new Margaritaville Casino in Biloxi last night. I won $100, then I spent $58 on a cute jacket in the gift shop...and of course we split a cheeseburger in paradise. The place was pretty awesome and the staff were very friendly. We will go back for sure!

Going to see the Blue Wahoos for the first time tonight...and my grands will be here shortly...gonna be a busy day.

Friends...I'm telling ya...ground flaxseed is amazing. My energy is up, I'm sleeping better, I'm having less hip and back pain, my outlook and optimism have improved, no hot flashes. It also helps me feel full so I am having a easier time sticking to my food plan. Long story short...GET SOME! I buy the whole seeds at Ever'man's and grind it in my magic bullet. I mix it in yogurt or put it in my salad, but there are lots of ways you can get it in...add it to smoothies, soups, bake with it...google it and read all about the benefits. I have taken the gelcaps forever...but I have NEVER felt this good from gelcaps...and the change was almost overnight!

I've added ground flaxseed to my daily intake...I'm feeling awesome and sleeping better. Don't know if it's the flax...but something has sure changed for the better!

Lots of wedding anniversaries this month...June...the month of brides! Congrats!

All is well here. We'll have some clean up of limbs, but that's all. What awful flooding...does make you wonder if maintenance of drainage conduits is not being properly done.

So how did everyone do in the storms? We did pretty good. I was looking at the pictures of different areas that flooded. Why? I mean do we not have adequate drainage? Not cleaning them out? I know across from where my son and his wife live, the drain does need cleaning out, and they've called about it.

This week will be a pretty big week. Hubby and I will be married 25 years on the 13th. Can't believe it's been that long. He still makes me laugh.

Had a house full of kids all weekend...and with this rain we were stuck inside the whole time. It was fun playing indoor games, though. Today is my husband's birthday...poor guy had to go to work because of all this rain. Kids have left, so now I'm home alone...just me and the fridge....hmmmm.

I get produce at Publix...but I do like Bailey's Farmer's market on Davis when I can get there.

I buy a lot of produce from the Flea Market in Gulf Breeze and the commissary.
It's been a busy weekend. Still got my hour long workouts in yesterday and today. Work was so crazy I did not have the opportunity to get the shot I need in my back.
Just now going to bed. Our house has been full of visitors all weekend. I'm still trying to watch my calorie intake. :)

Usually I get mine from the commissary also. I used to buy from a local fruit stand, the one at the corner of Mobile Hwy and Bellview but it closed down. It had the best tomatoes.

I've been to Everman but it's been awhile. I haven't tried any others yet.

So we are finally getting some rain. It does kind of muck up my plans for the weekend. My plants are loving it though.

Everman's. Also, I shop at the commissary. I've not gone to the Farmer's market on Sat. but guess that could be a good place. There are several places around town where people sell out of their truck and my neighbor always buys a lot from those people. She goes up near Jay and gets 100# bags of potatoes, etc. up there from farmers.

Going to try to keep up the good work I've been doing with my diet. I went vegan about 12 days ago. Been eating lots of fruits and veggies, and really like the Boca vegan burgers (which was a shock). I'm down five pounds, too!

I was going to try to go the Palafox Market in the morning, but I think the rain will keep me away. Which brings up a question for you all: where do you buy your fresh produce??
