I am so happy. Today was payday so I can buy more Slim Fast as am running out.

The only splurge I have are my mochas. They make me happy.

Do you have a splurge that makes you happy? How do you justify that splurge?

A little off of the subject...

For Christmas, I want to buy my priest a Keurig sold on Poshmark.

However, his secretary told me to buy him Wooden Classic TV Dinner Folding Trays with Storage Rack. These trays with storage rack just do not seem appealing to me. But, he did tell her he was wanting them. The secretary and I are like co-elves. He told her and I just happened to be asking. I have searched on Poshmark, but no trays there. The trays I did find are OK.

What do you think? Buy him the Keurig or get the trays?

I simply want an plain English pedometer. A pedometer is all of the motivation that I need.

What is your motivation?

Since many cannot go out, I thought sharing 2 ingredient recipes would be helpful. Items already in our pantry.

I am sharing a recipe I have made twice so far that I found on YouTube.

Mix softened cream cheese with salsa.

Dip whatever you want! Tortilla chips, vegetables, potato chips, crackers, etc.

I even threw in a can of black beans.

I hope you like.

Tired of drinking water? Drink club soda or seltzer water. If not, drink diet lemon/lime soda.

Hello fellow Sparkpeople team members!

Where do I begin...

I have been very busy with family and friends the past few weeks and am sooooo sorry I have not been active with you.

How are you? Miss me? I miss you! I have been working like a mad women...uploading my work to a flashdrive then submitting when I have a friend's Wi-Fi. I miss not having Wi-Fi, when vacationing, with family, but I think family is more important.

There is a book reviewer job that i wanted really bad. Well, not what I had planned. I submitted the first sample book review. I was told if approved, I would be paid there after. I got totally lied to. I was approved. I picked the next book to review and was told I get to keep the free book. What about the pay I was told about?

There is still a virtual health coach position I am interested in, but what about when like I am away without Wi-Fi? I would not be dependable.

What do I really want? My own professional blog. I want it to be about frugalness, cooking, fitness, religion, etc. I know there are some blogs for free but I want a professional one. It should cost no more than $5.00 a month.

I have been cutting corners, again, like a mad women. I have been drinking sooooo many pitchers of lemonade. I will not lie though as I am so thirsty for a soda, bottled water, etc.

I have exercised every single day since June 28th. I usually use a fitness pedal exerciser but need to do more cardio. I find Leslie Sansone OK, music OK, etc. However, I want something new. I will figure out a new routine soon. What do YOU think?

No crafts lately. I would like to have a bake sale soon though. I just do not have the money right now to buy everything I need for gift baskets and gift jars. I have some supplies, however, I would like a variety. Maybe some yard sales will pull through for me!

Well, I will close for now. Be good and Spark on!

Hugs,
ON_A_DIET

Question...

In the future, should I save up money and be certified by Leslie Sansone Walk Away The Pounds or just take on teaching on my own without any certification?

Pam?

Hello team!

Just a short message.

I am going to be on Sparkpeople today, then work.

Lately, I have been thinking about setting up a daily appointment for exercise. I am not a morning person, so probably around 5:00pm or so would be good. It is not "when" you exercise...just get it done!

Following, I am so wondering why not one person is joining my pro-life team. It is not some political activist team. It is simply a team to pray for those who cannot. Totally harmless and non-violent. Would you think about joining?

On the job front, I ordered Writers' Market from the library 3 weeks ago and is still not in. I want to find magazines accepting book reviews. I am good at book reviews and would not mind doing them for money. It is still freelance work, though. I would love to have a job doing on-line weight loss coaching. Still not giving up!

Today, I am drinking warm water with lemon to cleanse. uuugh

Be good!

Hey team!

During the past 2 days, I have been job searching. I just cannot find the right job. There just has not been one that is a perfect fit. I have looked at sales, blogging, writing, editing, book reviewing and on and on. I still dream of having a fitness and nutrition job. I applied to a company called WeightNot, but never heard from them, other than an e-mail stating that they got the application.

A few days ago, I went over tons of writing prompts, of which were basically useless. I got even more writers' block!

So, earlier today, I had a stress-breaker. I went out with the neighbor to a yard sale and thrift shop. I bought a ton of useful stuff for about $20.00. All useful. 4 new workout DVDs...everything from Prevention's Chris Freytag to Biggest Loser! Cookbooks. Sandwich maker. T-shirt. Fitness books.

Gosh, I even feel guilty for being on Sparkpeople instead of job-hunting even if for a couple of hours!

I have a library book that is about making salads in jars. One of the jar recipes is for Burger in a jar... and another is about Tuna in a jar (Deli style)...both salads. Later on tonight, I want to clean out my fridge and make room for jars. I think it is an excellent idea to have these jars made ahead of time for when I am hard at work and too stubborn to make something for lunch. I usually just throw some lunchmeat or cheese or peanut butter on bread. Yes, this is good to do.

I have a new pedometer and do NOT like it. Instead of wearing on your wrist or on your shoe, you have to keep it in your pocket. So, guess who has to wear pockets every day? It was the only store to have a pedometer in stock so I had to buy it. I hate not knowing how many miles/steps I have walked.

Well, I have potatoes (with butter & oil) in the crockpot then I will add pasta the last half hour of cooking. Spiced up with garlic salt, onion powder, minced garlic, oregano, salt, pepper, but we are out of parsley..

I have a very exciting life, huh? LOL Thanks for being my Sparkfriends!

Be good and Spark on!

Hello!

Just a short message today. I saved enough writing prompts from pinterest to keep me busy for a million years! Oh well, atleast I will not have writers' block for a while!

I would like to create my own Mediterranean Diet Sparkteam. Would you be interested?

I am having my morning iced coffee. FYI You can get French Vanilla and Hazelnut at Dollar Tree for a buck a bag. My favorite is chocolate raspberry by Arbuckle, but $4.99 a bag. I just cannot afford it.

It figures that I want to lay out today and the clouds are already blocking the sun. uuugh

Not sure what I want to throw in the crockpot today. Any recipes you'd like to share?

Well, I will sign off for now. Be good today and Spark on.

Hello team! Sorry for a boring form letter, but I want all of you to know I am here for you now.

I missed my faithful teams as-well-as my new teams. While on vacation, I do not always have access to Wi-Fi, which explains the absence.

Have you been getting in those 10 minutes? Have you been drinking enough? What is for dinner? Treat fitness and nutrition like a job... You are more than likely to get it accomplished if so. They say to make it fun though. I disagree.

The local library has gotten strict with me about taking out coupons. I may only take out a few circulars instead of all of the circulars. The librarians upset me because if I do not take all of the coupons, the coupons just lay there until the expiration has passed! So, why the big deal if I take them all?

I need to work on a newspaper article. The deadline is soon!

Hopefully, the local grocery store has produce on clearance so I may make some good smoothies. I love the taste of Slim Fast, but it is just not filling. I almost bought a juicer at a yard sale, but the woman wanted $8.00. I refuse to spend more than a buck or two. She would only come down a dollar. So, no deal. I have to use my blender which does not always work as good.

Do you need some spare money? Are you good with blogging? This is a freelance job that pays by PayPal. You write for whom ever you like whenever you like.

Well, I will close for now... Be good and Spark on!

I hope the sun comes out this weekend. I am a sun worshipper. (former tanning bed user too)

Pam, do you take a multi-vitamin? I really do not see any difference when I take them. So, I stopped.

Do you know anything about fenugeek?

One thing I do like a lot, whether for a quick snack or quick breakfast is a strawberry Slim-Fast. But I could never follow the Slim-Fast diet my whole life. Just a quick milkshake every now and then.

I could never go without carbs either. I am a pasta girl.

Back to wanting to be an instructor, in the future, I want to be an on-line weight loss coach. A few days ago, I applied to a company called WeightNot. Have you heard of them? Wish me luck.

Well, now my coffee maker is calling my name. I have morning and evening iced coffee.

Miss ya!

I am looking awfully silly being the only one here.

Today has been OK. How about with you?

I played BINGO . A bunch of us get together and play for prizes as opposed to playing for money. I like to win items for gift baskets or stuff for myself to snack on. Today, I won peanut butter and pretzel sticks. Not sure if I myself want them or to place in gift baskets yet.
Hey! Don't laugh! LOL

It poured down raining earlier today, also, but now it is just cloudy and cool.

I am having my iced coffee but there is something not right. Anymore, my iced coffee just does not taste good. I make the iced coffee like I always do. The devil is NOT going to win this battle! If I do not drink booze and do not do drugs, then I AM going to drink iced coffee. Any suggestions?

I found a health coach job to send a resume to, but not sure if I will. With my present job, if you think about, I have it made. I do not have to pay for my own websites, I can write and edit and publish whatever I want, make a difference in people's lives, be seen all over the world, I can telecommute. This means, no car payments, no having to spend money on lunches, not having to buy expensive clothes, (heck, I can work in my jammies), I can make my own hours, never get bored, see?

I thought I would help out the Easter Bunny and use coupons @ Dollar Tree to get chocolate for Easter. I had 4 coupons good for 8 huge bags of M & M's. Who should the Easter Bunny give it all to? This should be interesting...

Well, I will sign off for now. Be good and Sparkmail me!

Sincerely,
ON_A_DIET

p.s. I NO LONGER like chair yoga. I will never do it again.

I have recently fell in love with chair yoga. So much that I would love to be able to lead chair yoga classes.

The other day, I was made co-team leader of Jodi Stolove Sparks Sparkteam, which is a chair exercise team.

On Sparkpeople TV, there is not a big selection of chair yoga exercises. So, I will be subscribing to YouTube chair exercise videos.

Once I have mastered chair yoga, I will see what I can do.

I hope you are having a Happy Happy Monday!

I was away on vacation for a week and am finally able to do my Sparkteams! Did you miss me? LOL

I just do not understand my weight... The entire week I had been on vacation, I drank coffee and unsweetened iced tea with lemon. I gained 2 pounds! I have a book called "The Ultimate Tea Diet" and thought I would 2 things...incorporate unsweetened iced tea with lemon into my lifestyle and also be able to save money by doing so by making homemade iced tea with inexpensive tea bags. What did I do wrong? uuugh

I have dinner fired up in the crockpot... Vegetable Soup! What I like is that veggies are "free" food and I used up tomato juice that was just sitting there in the fridge. I like to have 1 to 2 meatless meals every 7 days. I would never survive as a vegetarian but I look at animals and think "How could we do such a thing to them..." Know what I mean?

Last night was really rough. I had an panic attack and anxiety. I would not wish it on my worst enemy. I attempted to control it by staying in front of the television with "Impractical Jokers" on. Kindly pray it will not happen again.

Well, my 2 cents for now... Have a blessed Sunday and be good!

Hey there!

Today, I placed groceries away, did an article, washed dishes (numerous occasions), got garbage ready,...

My housemate was in our garage. I went to go talk to her and saw my futon I had forgotten completely about. It is a futon chair, but as you know futons may open up to be a bed. When I moved in years ago, I stored it in the garage and forgot all about. I usually do not go in our garage. It is my housemate's little cave. So, anyway, I placed it in my office. Now, if I get tired of my desk, I can chill on the futon.

I might get to see my mother on Sunday! I am so excited!

I have been searching through stuff I do not need, to give up, for this Lent. I have 2 more bags of clothes to give away. I think i need to go through some shoes.

Have you ever wished there were a team on Sparkpeople that interested you but did not exist? What team would it be?

Well, I have to work late with my boutique. I will make sure I get in my pedaling!

Be good!
