It is rather hilarious now that I think of it...

About 5 years ago, I bought an iced tea maker at a yard sale. I used the iced tea maker quite often until I figured making iced tea in the microwave was easier.

So, we through the iced tea maker out when cleaning out the basement.

This summer, I bought another iced tea maker at a yard sale. Really nice one too. Brand-new. Of course, I bought it. Used the iced tea maker once, then let set on the counter.

Yesterday, the roommates threatened that the iced tea maker would go bye-bye if I do not use. So, I got off my tush and make some iced tea with the iced tea maker. I plan on making iced tea with it from now on.

Hey On_A_Diet! Today was an interesting day. emoticon Lol I had to get up extra early to attend a Valentine’s Board meeting/guest celebration for an interdenominational church women’s group of which I’m an officer.

That was a lot of fun. But we had a member who when we were trying to get her back into my friend’s car who brought her, our lady slipped down. It took calling a paramedic and ambulance to get her back in the wheelchair and then to the hospital to make sure she’s okay.

My son, boyfriend, and I were supposed to be meeting for lunch and then going to a movie. However, our meeting ran long and then with our friend’s mishap, I was about an hour late going to meet them. My impatient boyfriend basically just “stomped his feet” (threw a fit thinking I’d blown them off) and went home. emoticon emoticon

Another blissful day with him 🤔😉😜😂 I have him a what for after he’d Actually blown us off a few weeks ago about what I’d told you about last week and just laid into him by text. He never answered: the phone (except to answer then hang up lol) or text. It’ll be a few days. 😜 At least. Oh well...

Hope things are going better for you. And warming up a bit. Have a wonderful weekend! 🙌🏼

2019 is our year! ;)

It worked out. My son and I finally found each other after much frustration—really more for him since he got stuck riding the bus around. Lol

My boyfriend makes it up in other ways I suppose. We’re off and on so often now so just call him a friend since sometimes it’s like we haven’t been together for over 13 years. Lol I let him know that it really screwed up what we were trying to do. I think he got it. He finds extra stuff a lot and always shares it. He also usually goes to the many food pantries on the weekends that I’m too tired to go to.

What’s your side hustle? I’m getting into one with a friend who wants he to sell some old books of hers.

Yeah, a decent laptop is definitely necessary if you’re online a lot and mobile. Have you tried Craigslist or one of those resale shops, if you have them where you are?

emoticon You really did have a bad day... I am glad you found your son. Did your friend apologize?

Today, I am cleaning and doing side hustles.

I need to buy a laptop. I looked for a used one on eBay, but no luck. Most say the used ones are "for parts". What do you think? My laptop is my set of wheels.

Yeah, today was tiring. A lot of my own anxiety and lack of organization...also depending on someone whom I cannot, clearly, depend on.

My son has Asperger’s and ADHD. He needs a lot of support and guidance. And adherence to a pretty strict routine. Today with my job midday and a usual dinner and food pantry we go to, I needed him to go with a friend of mine. That friend blew it off, and texted me After the time they should’ve gone. I tried getting ahold of my son up until I left work. Long story short, he got lost on the bus, we finally caught up on the way home. It’s raining and cold (luckily not very cold right now—that’s tomorrow! Lol).

I’m whining. It’s just been a rough day all around. Tomorrow’s a new day and it’ll get better. You live; you learn. You get knocked down and get back up, dust yourself off. Move on. emoticon

You’re so right though: thank God for SparkPeople and groups like this. emoticon

Hello... I was worn out for some odd reason. I worked today, side hustled, took a shower, listened to some music, watched some EWTN, washed dishes, cleared out the fridge, had the iced coffee ritual, but now I am good. I guess Sparkpeople is a blessing... emoticon

If you can do a blog, I think you should go for it! Do you want a free blog or paid blog? That is the tricky part. I have thought about blogging and setting up affiliate, but I just cannot figure out the way to do it. If you do, would you teach me?

I'm with you on that! I can't be on every day...or not for long. I am a team leader in one of my fitness challenge teams too. Wish it was a paid position. I've thought about fitness blogging and then seeing how to turn that into work. I love to write and I love fitness/nutrition challenges and lifestyle changes. Just figuring out where to start. YouTube has alot of videos on all sorts of things. I follow some influencers, as they're called, on there. But I don't spend alot of time with that. That's a great idea though. I need to organize how I do what I want to do. A direction. emoticon

Have a great week! I'll be back soon. So glad you decided to stay, On_A_Diet!

I am staying, but I cannot be active every day. Although, I would love to spend every single day on Sparkpeople! Too bad not a paid position!

I hope you have some good inspiration today for all of your writing projects. What are your topics today? I need to go through some YouTube reviews for work and also complete a side hustle or two. Do any of you have side hustles?

Have a good day!

On_A_Diet please stay! I got done really great tips from you the times I’ve come in here. I am really inspired by you and others who’ve freely given me encouragement and resources for writing.

I hear you about the weight loss stagnation though. I’ve been on SP since about 2012, but truthfully have been active intermittently. I joined Weight Watchers off and on last year but had been more committed to SP starting a few years ago. I like that SP’s tracker gives me a count of my micronutrients too. My Weight Watchers app doesn’t.

I hope to see you in here. I’ll check in more and we’ve can cheer all of us on in our progress of writing—and fitness. Cheers! Happy New Year! emoticon

Hello to all of you superb Sparkpeople members. The new year is here.

I have been keeping myself occupied with work and side hustles. When I wake up it is dark outside. When I go to bed it is dark outside. When is the time change ever going to get here?

Instead of drinking my favorite diet lemon iced tea in my sports water bottle, I made a pitcher of unsweetened black iced tea. Tastes good for a change.

I may be quitting Sparkpeople. In 2015, I began Sparkpeople and weighed 170. It is now 2019 and I still weigh 170 pounds. I think I need to pursue different avenues. If you really want me to stay, tell me. If not, I really may have to go.

Have a good weekend.

Take coffee breaks, iced tea breaks, lemonade breaks. A little refreshment to strive for. Most of all, do not forget food!

I tend to forget drinking and eating when I work.

Hello there folks!

I hope all of you are having success with your weight loss journey... whether with your fitness, nutrition or simply having Sparkpeople there for you when you need it. As for Sparkpeople, I know I can always get a boost of inspiration, motivation and/or a good kick in the butt, when I need it.

You are probably sick of me talking about my work. Writing and editing take up every spare minute that I have and are very important to me. Editing is kind-of boring, though. However, when I do the writing, it is like a free education. I learn so much. Lately, I have been doing many YouTube reviews. Do you know of any good girly YouTube videos?

I cannot wait to weigh myself next Tuesday! I am at 158 pounds and want to be 150 pounds. Kind-of still chunky, but not obese. I do not want to look anorexic. I want some meat on my bones. What do you think?

Have a super Friday! If you are going out tonight, be careful!

Keep Sparking,

ON_A_DIET

Yesterday, I worked on two articles... one about the benefits of collagen for women and the other one on not giving up on exercise. Let's pray the articles get many views!

How about you? What have you been working on?

How are you today?

I have been working super hard. Articles and side hustles... I was kind-of given a promotion at the website I am a contributing writer for. So, very excited and wanting to take on even more.

The side hustles have been taking up my Sparkpeople time. I have to do what I have to do. However, I do check in with the teams as often as I can.

For dinner today, I am serving leftover bow-tie pasta with meatballs. Frugal and filling. I am a carb-lover but watch my portion.

The weather has been so nice that all I want to do is sit outside! I do for about 20 minutes, then return to my desk.

Tonight is Mass on-line and either in-home walking or fitness pedal exercising.

If you have any good no-bake recipes, would you share the recipes with me? I need recipes that are easy and require barely any time to make.

Well, I will close for now. Be good!

You know what I hate? When you have things written on paper and a person reads your stuff over your shoulder! I always mind my own business.

Interesting. I rarely write about myself though.

I do alot of research. Often, for work, I do listicles. They say people learn more from lists.

Glad you are here Latisha!

Sometimes I feel like I don't know what I am doing when I am writing, but the passion inside is so much stronger. I love to write and that's all to it. Be determined to write your own story from beginning to ending! Enjoy your day!

I am getting a late start in my day.

For lunch, I made BLTs with potato chips. For dinner, burgers. Nothing spectacular, but something.

Laundry is needing to be accomplished tomorrow. My basket is the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

For Lent, I am taking 40 things out of my closet, bookshelves, etc. to give to charity. A kind-of neat way to give up something.

Talk again soon...

Hello freelancers!

What has been going on in your life?

The weather is freezing here. Attempting to stay warm interferes with being productive.

I miss my family so much.

How have you been?

What type of freelancing do you do? I do writing, editing, surveys, discussion forum and every-so-often, book reviewing.

I read about a woman who calls her occupation "A Professional Side Hustler". Thought she was really neat.

What do YOU call yourself?

Hello team.

Due to personal reasons, I had a really tough week.

How are you?

I am exhausted but wanted to tell you that I have not quit.

Today, I did two submissions, did dishes twice, did two loads of laundry, made dinner and worked on one side hustle.

Also, I wrote a Sparkpeople blog. I got a message from one Sparkfriend. I wonder if I quit Sparkpeople if my absence would even be missed. I could easily quit and work for money in it's place. I volunteer as a team leader out of the kindness of my heart.

So, I give Sparkpeople one more week. Should I stay or should I go?

I have been doing some soul-searching about work... what is more important, what time of day or night to do each one, where to put in the most effort, etc. I hold multiple jobs... Then, there is Sparkpeople (a part-time job in itself).

How have you been?

Although this is a freelance writing team, it is also a fitness & nutrition team. How has your health been lately?

Have you been keeping a water bottle on your desk?

Have you been snacking in-between meals?

Have your meals been nutritious?

Without proper nutrition and hydration, you are done for.

Latisha, how is blogging going for you?

What are all of you up to? I hope your submissions and keyboards/note pads/pens are cranking out some good stuff. What are some of your topics?

What mostly do you do? Magazines, books, blogging, discussion forums, etc.?

Have a good day.

What were your topics today?

Did you take a break? Maybe a siesta for productivity?

Hello team!

I have been working my little petunia off. Although I have not been (as I said I would be) consistent in exercise, I have been drinking plenty of water. I will get back on the wagon.

Last night, before I went to bed, I jotted down 9 new topics to write about. I like to do this so I won't be at lost for words the next day.

I would love to take a few free on-line courses. Just not enough minutes in the day.

Have a super and productive day.

You have a super blessed Monday too!

What is on the schedule for today? Submitting any good work?

When I was in high school, my biology teacher told me I was "mediocre". I never forgot.

I may not be the best paid writer, but I have readers from all over the world.

Hello team!
How are you today? I am happy to say that I have one article down, one to go. Side hustles to do yet. But for right now, I need a little Sparkpeople! Don't we all?

My article was on What To Do When You Just Can't Live Without Him. My next one is about Working From Home. Next, my side hustles are easy but time-consuming, such as surveys. Hummm...I wonder what Sparkpeople is.....?

The water consumption is super. I get in 80 ounces a day. They say to drink half your body weight in ounces. So, for example, 160 pounds = 80 ounces. What are you drinking right now? Believe me, I love my diet soda. I had to discipline myself. Not easy.

I asked the girls what they wanted for dinner. I got grumble and growl. They said they'd fend for themselves. So, I put a crockpot of vegetable soup on. I know them like yesterday. They'll be the first to ask when the vegetable soup is ready. My roommates know one word...food.

The exercise is becoming consistent. I like to fitness pedal exercise for 30 minutes which burns over 300 calories. So, I can burn off even a meal. Very good, very good, yay! I do lace up my gym shoes for basic walking around the house, out in public, to-and-from wherever I go.

The dating scene is just not there. I must look awful. I signed up for some dating newsletters from some dating blogs but have not gotten the first newsletters yet. I will keep you informed.

I recently read a Sparkblog by READYSTEADYGOGO about finding light in the darkness. I recommend it to anyone. When you think you are at your darkest moment, learn something new!!! FIND light. For example, take a free on-line class, read a new book, get on Sparkpeople and join a new team, etc. The options are endless!

Finally, be good.

I am taking a break from an article. Reminded myself to have lunch. Now I have to get dinner started already to feed the roommates.

My article topic is "Gifts To Give A Friend Starting a Diet"...

How about you?

Want to know how I had to work my way up?

I didn't have a laptop or Wi-Fi period. I volunteered as a writer for a Catholic newspaper and would mail my articles in through the mail. Handwritten.

Things were not handed to me on a silver platter.

How about you?

The above is a pen pal site. I thought you might be interested. Some join to learn a foreign language, some for love. Either way you look at it, it is writing for fun! Give yourself a break from work and write for fun!

When was the last time you stocked up on office supplies? Do you have any specific stores? I buy from a local discount grocery store.

I am feeling sorry for myself. I am in a funk. My blog would explain.

I hope you have a blessed Saturday. Any plans for the day?

For Christmas Eve, I am making a crockpot of wedding soup. I cannot wait!

Maybe I could make some buckeyes too. I found a super easy recipe on YouTube. One jar of peanut butter and one jar of chocolate icing. Just layer the two. I lack common sense and was thinking it would be too technical for me to do.

Should I start a blog about cookbooks? Members could share favorite recipes from any cookbook that they want. Maybe THAT would get me out of this funk?

Be good because Santa is watching.
