I am not where I have been posting but I don't have any posts on our thread. (sigh) When you guys notice I am not here, please send me sparkmail! It's been a rough week. DH was out of work with a cold two days last week. Kiddos have more stuff than I can remember. The store where I work part time is closing so I have worked extra helping to get things done there. Whiner whiner.

The good news is a I did my 5K training run/walk for the mini. I didn't quite meet my goal of doing a pace of less than 15 minutes/mile but I did a pace of 15:20/mile. That's better than anything I did last year. So I suppose I will take it.

I will get new threads up tomorrow. Here are quick answers to some of the questions asked in the thread.

1. Yes the weight will com back off.
2. No, ciabatta is no better than any other bread. Everything in moderation.
3. No you are not a bad person if you don't watch the Olympics. I love the Olympics except for it interferes with Biggest Loser.

Hope all sick people feel better soon.

UGH! rough weekend. Can't tell which is worse, the pressure in the head, that out of nowhere jabbing pain in the ear/jaw or the burning itching eyes that feel like I am looking through diry windows.
Got used to the throat being sore and the chest congestion.
Thought I felt better today but think I just muddled through the day.
I got ambitious when I got home and got my 30 minutes cardio in and did some strength exercises.
More snow tonight but nothing should be on the roads tomorrow, oh yeah except for the stuff they haven't cleared from last week yet.
It's hard to see how many trees lost branches from the winds last week as they plowed them into the big snow piles on the side of the road. I think half of my neighbors huge pine tree is now buried at the bottom of heap of snow on my lawn and won't know it til spring.


Have a Beautiful Day!

Just checking in right quick. My fiance and I are going to watch a romance movie as we never got to last night 'cos I had a headache. I seem to have a lot of really bad headaches lately. I know that stress is a part of it, but it could also be because of the weather too. The pressure seems to fluxuate from low to high really quick and there's a storm moving in on Wednesday with 15cm's on the way! I told my fiance that I'm going to put a carrot on my nose and stand out there to make a snowman since I never made one yet lol :P But all in all, I'm not doing too bad with everything that's going on :) I'm hoping to be able to go to the gym tomorrow. I was really impressed with my 70 mins on the treadmill the last time I went :) Good luck with the weigh in tomorrow everyone!

Hello,
More Snow!!! There is about 15 inches out there, I think. I had today off, as well as last Friday, as I was planning on visiting my daughter for her 20th birthday (today!!), but the weather got in the way. I feel pretty crummy anyway. My cold is getting worse. I truly believe that stress is the enemy of the immune system.
Augh. Need a new furnace. Augh.
Tomorrow will be a better day. Actually, tonight is going to get a lot better as soon as the pairs skating starts on the Olympics in a little bit. And I'm all about the snowboarding! Yaaahhhoooooooo!!!!!!!!
Later, friends,
Mary Ann

Happy Monday evening, all. I just realized I didn't post yesterday! I'm still okay, though. I only missed two days, so I still hit the five post minimum!

How was everyone's weekend? I did pretty well, actually. I tend to blow it on the weekends, so I was extra careful in watching my food choices and portions. I only got four glasses of water in yesterday, though. I got four in today so far, but I'll be up for a little while yet so I'll get the last four in before bed. I wish I could get them in earlier in the day, then maybe I wouldn't get up so frequently at night to use the bathroom. But I usually just want coffee, tea, or cocoa in the mornings, so I usually don't start drinking my water until lunch or after. Have to work on that!

Well, I'm off to watch Bachelor with my Bip, so have a good night, and good luck on the weigh-ins tomorrow!

Good Morning All! Cold morning here but sunny. Not much going on. About to go get some exercise in. Struggling a little with sweets.

Sue, Have fun with your friends. Hopefully all the fun you will have will burn some of those drinks calories.

Hope everyone has a successful Monday!

lol, I will Suz, I am not moving all that stuff right away! The couch is heavy, but I almost think the recliners are worse. I'm thinking its not too bad. I have my kitty tower that just doesn't have a place now. Not like they actually use it anyway so I should just get rid of it.

I'm off for a day of fun with friends. Traveling to spend the night. It will be a day of drinking so I am hoping I did well enough this week to ward off the pending damage!

I've spent the last couple days trying to rearrange my living room. Not sure if I like it, but maybe once I get rid of some more stuff it will be OK. It is just too small, or maybe I just have to much stuff. Yes, that is probably it. The office is the next project.. more stuff to get rid of.. ugh!

Happy, lazy Saturday everyone. I'm so bored today. It almost feels like a Sunday to me. I haven't watched the Olympics. I'm probably one of the very few people in the world who don't watch it. If I catch it and there's nothing else on, I enjoy the figure skating, but that's about it. I don't go out of my way to watch it. Does that make me a bad person??!!!

Anyway, I haven't eaten much today. Had a couple of scrabmled eggs this morning, and a muffin. I munched on some reduced fat Cheez-Its a little while ago, but no big meals or anything. The water has me feeling pretty full. I'm going to a reunion meeting from a ladies' retreat I went to in November and there's always a ton of food, so I'll probably skip dinner so I can enjoy some snacks there. No sense in eating right now if I'm not hungry, right? Then I'll have to fight temptations there, knowing I had a full meal before arriving.

Well, have a nice evening everyone! I'll check back with ya'll tomorrow!

PS: Aunt T, unfortunately, you're probably 100% correct about the Ciabatta bread. It tasted way too good to be healthy! :(

It was with the lighting of the torch. The center torch has 4 smaller torches surrounding it. At the end of the ceremony, doors opened in the floor, and the 4 small torches were supposed to raise up from the floor - but one of the doors wouldn't open, so only 3 of the small torches raised up. And they had 4 people to light the torches, so one of them didn't get to light anything! :(

Not really sure if Ciabatta is any better than white bread. Unfotunately any bread that isn't homemade is filled with fats and sugars. But the good thinking is there. When yu stop and make an effort to try to make the meal healthier is a step in the right direction. As far as the water and going to the ladies room constantly, that will get better as your body regulates the consumption, (think cell osmosis from biology) The more your kidneys are working the less stress on your liver. Doing great just keep with it.

Have a Beautiful Day!

Hi all,

Mary Ann, you're inspiring me with your Olympic enthusiasm! :) I watched the opening ceremonies, and they were inspiring. Too bad about the technical malfunction at the end!

I've been doing a little bit better this week. Still not perfect with the cardio, but getting back on track. I feel like I've gained weight, though!

Okay, lots of housework to do today - hopefully that will burn some calories!!

Good Morning,
I am inspired and motivated by the Olympics. I was an ice skater as a little girl, and I love the figure skating and the hockey. Maybe I should start an Old Ladies Hockey Team...hm...THAT would burn the calories!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Hi everyone. Just checking in. I had a very long day today, and am ready to relax a bit and hit the hay. Was on the go a lot today and got a sandwich at Sheetz for lunch. I got that chiabatta bread. (Sp.?) That's healthier right? Isn't it multi-grain or something? Anyhow, it was really good. I hope it was healthier than getting the white roll.

I'm definitely getting all my water in this week! Can't stand going to the bathroom every half an hour or so. I get up about three times a night, too. It's a shame that to be healthy you have to choose water or sleep, 'cuz you certainly can't have both!!!

See ya'll tomorrow! Have a great weekend!

Can you beleive it snowed in 49 of our 50 states. And here it Texas we got nearly 13 inches. That is unheard of!

Well I think we can kick up an even bigger storm if we all started exercising everyday. So I am starting my own trend.

190. = May 30, 2011
Regret - what for? I can only start where I am at the moment. Today is Sunday, May 30, so I am starting at 190.

Good morning...
Bright and sunny out there today which I am sure is deceiving temp wise. Kids have a two school delay. DD taking in things to donate to the local humaine society for her eco club. Rounded up some old blankets and towels. They are supposed to bring in dog and cat food, too, but I gave her a check for a donation instead as it would be rough for her to take all that stuff on the bus with her.

Alicia - I agree with Tiff, your not satisified with it,bottom line. Don't you have wii fit? you can weigh on there, if you do.

Have a Beautiful Day!

Hi all,

Just back from a great session with my trainer. Woohoo, feeling good now!

The snow here was a bit of a letdown. They were forecasting about a foot, and we only got about 5 inches. I guess the ground was too warm, so most of it melted on contact. Oh, well, it was still pretty to watch as it fell!

Just checking in right quick. I didn't feel like going on the computer earlier, which is a bonus for me as I'm always on FB playing games lol :P I'm addicted to them :P Today, I felt much better so I got off my lazy butt and went to the gym. I did 70 mins on an incline of 1 on the treadmill! I was so proud of myself! My feet feel like they're bruised and blistered, but I don't care. I know that I won't get any exercise in for the next 2 days as I just got my face waxed (I have a dissorder called hirtsitism or hirtsilum, which causes hair growth on the face. It's noticable, but not as bad as some ppl get it) so if I were to exercise, it would cause me to sweat and then my face breaks out. So I usually have to watch how I sleep and keep my hair off of my face. I hate the next few days after waxing, but oh well. I'll just have to watch what I eat, get my water and my green tea in and I should be fine :)

TIGERLILLEE-I think that you should take the scales back. If it's not working up to it's claimed standards, then it's not worth keeping. Don't feel embarassed taking it back. Just think of it as you being the consumer and it being just any old product that you're not satisfied with. Plus if they say anything, then they've stepped out of line and you probably get an ever better scale out of it lol. Seriously though, they aren't supposed to say anything to you. If you're not happy with it, especially if it's not working, then they're obligated to take it back...no questions asked :) You can do it!

Just checking in for the night. Got to work late today but only four of us showed up anyway. Had to help shove five drivers out of snow banks on the way. Took DD out sledding, well makeshift sledding. We haven't seen snow like this 1996 so not a sled or snowboard to be found. Ended up using the top of our car luggage carrier and worked great. Kids had a blast and although my toes feel like they are frost bitten, I enjoyed the fresh air. Didn't seem to do much for the sore throat, though. Another hot cup of tea and honey then to bed early tonight.
Hope everyone has a great Friday.

Have a Beautiful Day!

Hello everyone! I just realized I didn't post yesterday, so I better make sure I don't slack off when the weekend gets here, because now I'm already one day down!

I have an answer to weight gain this week! Didn't realize TOM was due in for a visit, then the rascal arrived a few days early! It's no secret what that can do alone, then couple it with not getting my water in- no wonder I gained. It was a disaster waiting to happen! I'm looking for much better numbers next week, and dare I dream, getting out of the 250's?!!!

I hate having to use the scale at work. (It's a dog scale; I work for a vet.) We bought a new scale around New Year's and it was supposed to be able to weigh up to 300 pounds. Well it doesn't register my weight, and I'm so ticked off! I can't very well go back and return it, either. I'd have to tell them that it doesn't register my weight and try to make them believe I do not weigh 300 pounds. Can you imagine how humiliating that would be?? My new goal right now..... be able to register on my home scale before Summer!! UGH.

Good Morning!
Still a mess out there, but at least no snow is falling. We're getting a break until Sunday! But, Hello Cincinnati, it's winter, and we don't exactly live south of the Mason-Dixon. Although my poor daughter lives in Nashville, and it's cold and snowy there too! Her dog loves it, but the rest of the city apparently doesn't know how to drive in snow and ice. I feel bad for them!
Sorely tempted, still, to invest in the Wii fit. I am doing my Marines exercises, but I feel that ominous feeling of being bored with it. We'll see.
Have a wonderful day, everyone, and please don't slip on the ice!

Good morning...
Going to shower and brave the new day. Not sure how far I will get and when I will get there but I guess, I should attempt to get to work. Throat not feeling as bad as it did yesterday and hoping not to feel as tired by day end either. Can't tell if I am missing my morning workouts because I was getting used to them or just plain guilt. LOL
Hope everyone has a great day!

Have a Beautiful Day!

Hi everyone,

Oh, I've been bad, too - including not posting to this team! Work has just been insanely busy - working late many evenings, and that has left me little time to go to the gym or to spark. :( I'm trying to refocus and re-prioritize. I'm going on a cruise in 4 1/2 weeks, and so I'm making it my goal to lose about 5 lbs by then! And then hopefully not gain it all back on the ship. :)

It's a snowy day here today, too. I worked from home all day and was pretty productive. Then I spent some time on the Wii Fit and did some strength training. Stayed within my calories today, too! So it was a good day.

Just checking in right quick. Still feeling pretty yucky, but I'm getting there :) I hope that everyone's week is going ok? Good news that I found out today is that my gym membership is still active while I'm on stress leave from work. Boo Yah! So I plan to be taking advantage of that a lot when I feel better! :)

Well, the snow got pretty deep out there today. It's really cold and the branches on my maple tree are hanging down so far they touch the ground. It's actually looks very pretty, almost like an archway of snow over my walkway.
Been fighting a sore throat and earache for the last three days. Nothing I eat is satisfying cause it all tastes terrible. You think I would just not eat then. Not a chance.
Getting loads of water and weak tea with honey. Not sure if they will have school tomorrow. Boss gave us off today but I have been working remote from home. Still hasn't stopped so not sure what the roads will look like in the morning. They declared a state of emergency earlier this afternoon for our area.
Didn't do too bad this week. Got three days of 60 minute cardio and upped my calories a little. Hope things continue in this direction.


Have a Beautiful Day!

so, we have snow. there's a good few inches out there. i plan to stay inside with the hubby and girls all day. i figured i could do a BL video when the hubby gets up...he can entertain the girls for 30 minutes, hopefully they will let me. sometimes as soon as i start my video, the youngest one they decides that it is time to eat, even if she has just eaten, so i end up stopping my workout and not getting back to it. hopefully today is different.

Alicia I'm not sure but I think not getting your water in can do some damage, especially if you had too much sodium. Water helps to flush it out of the system. Stick with it, I'm sure it will come right back off.

Suz you have been under a lot of stress, maintaining is good! Hugs

I know I need to get more cardio in. Just can't seem to get myself in gear to do it more often. Will work on that this week.

Good Morning All! Hope everyone is doing well. Dropping by for a quick hello. Have a busy day ahead. Stay the same with my weight. I have to say with all the stress I have had lately I am happy with that for now. Was worried I was going to gain.

Tiff, "Hugs" I know you will get those 2 pounds off.

MaryAnn, Stay warm, Its cold down here in the south but no snow.

Hope everyone has a successful day!

Oh my gosh, you guys, I gained two pounds this week! I know I didn't exercise, but I didn't think I ate that badly this week! I know that I only got my water in twice this week, and that was Wednesday & Thursday when the week started fresh, and I was refocused. Can not getting your water in every day really make that much of a difference? Wow! What a hit I took on the scale this week!

Why do I always feel so motivated on a Wednesday, and then my week just goes down hill? It's those darned weekends, I tell ya! Why does everything just go by the wayside, because Friday gets here???? I know the weekends are a great chance to relax, but there should be no reason to slack off. Why do I keep sabotaging myself???

GRRRRR!

Hope you feel better soon!

Hi everyone,

Just checking in. I'm going postal no matter what this week :P I'm not feeling well, so I haven't gotten any exercise in yet. But it's definitely in my plan when I feel better. I'm hoping it's a simple 2 day flu, but it stills sucks. Anyways, try to have a good week everyone :)

-Tiffany

LESSISMORE4ME-I hope that your life gets easier, stress isn't fun to have in our lives :(

MACULBERTSON-Thanks for all of your kind words. I like what you said about trying to find bright spots in our lives :)

Hi,
Snowy day here, and more on the way! I'm lucky that it isn't too complicated for me, since my kids are all away and the only person who has to go to work is me, since the spouse is retired. So, came home early, and I lit a fire in the fire place, and I have a brand-new library book to dig into. Ah, relaxing.
I hope everyone finds something to be happy about this week. We are all really stressed out with Life, and hopefully we'll find a few bright spots here and there.
I learned from Jillian (not our trainer, I know, but I love her!) that stress makes the body retain water, and makes it hard to lose weight. Aha. So, I'm seeking peace. Not always finding it, but seeking it.
This new Christmas kitten has been a tremendous stress-buster! Love her!
Later, friends,
Mary Ann

just checking in for the day. i have really been slacking on working out and eating as healthy and as well as i should be, thus my weight loss is slowed down a lot. this week it's only 1 lb...i just need to get my butt in gear and get with it. i know i can, i just for some reason dont really feel like it. i would rather play with my kids and hang out with my husband, watching a movie, than having to spend time away from them exercising...
