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.

My Christmas Dinner Alone

This year, I spent Christmas without my family.

My family's Christmas dinner tradition was always homemade spaghetti and a big garden salad.

My mother never taught me how to make homemade spaghetti. However, she did teach me how to make a mean pasta salad. So, what was I supposed to do for Christmas this year?

I made a big pasta salad.

Merry Christmas.

OOOOH......I love the new picture of the coffee drink by the Christmas Tree.....anybody drink fancy coffees, like mochas, etc?? I LOVE to jack my hot coffee up and make it a treat...not much of a dessert eater, but will indulge in a mocha like a Boss Queen ;)

I gave up trying to figure out my weight years ago. Your soup sounds delicious.

I'm sorry about the anxiety/panic attack. I get them too, and they're miserable.

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!

I know I should be working, but I LOVE SPARKPEOPLE.

I work my own hours. Whether I rush or whether I crawl, I still get paid the same way.

I hope you are all having a wonderful evening.

Out of curiosity, do any of you have coffee in the evening or night? I love to have iced coffee in the morning and at night. Water/Iced Tea throughout the day.

LADYIRISH, how are you??????

Be good!

It is NOT pretty around here... I am still out of chocolate raspberry!

I am NOT happy.

Today, I had Clover Valley brand coffee from Dollar General. I like Clover Valley pasta, so why is Clover Valley coffee so bad?

I will think of something...

Lately, all I can afford is Dollar Tree coffee... They have French Vanilla and Hazelnut that are tolerable. However, their Breakfast Blend is yuck. I miss my Arbuckle's Chocolate Raspberry something fierce. But, it is $4.99 a bag. When you have to cut corners, you have to cut corners. Anymore, when there are coffee coupons, the coupons are always for Keurigs, of which I will never be able to afford!

Have a blessed Sunday!

Best of luck on those three teams. Your dinner sounds delicious! My mother's family was heavily German, so that's a bit of home for me.

A Facebook friend sent me a big care package yesterday. I'm in the hospital long-term, and she sent me all kinds of snacks and goodies (the Pirate's Booty probably won't survive the day today). Included in the package were some packages of Folgers instant coffee packets. It's going to be interesting to compare them to Starbucks Via, of which I've become quite a fan (I who said I would NEVER drink instant coffee).

Have a great Sunday, and enjoy your coffee!

Hello! I have returned from my hometown. I miss my family already.

I have requested to become an editor for 6 more sites and have already received word of 3 that are NOT available. Wish me luck on the 3 that are left.

I am making German Potato Salad with Kielbasa in the crockpot for dinner. A quick recipe to throw together.

I keep saying that I am going to get more activity, but now truly mean it. My favorite workout DVD is called Walking With Joyce Vedral. I just get so intimidated as I want to have her same body. But, it will take a good 2 years to accomplish. Wish me luck. LOVECAROL has almost convinced me to attempt yoga. What is your take on yoga?

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Be good!

ACK! I'm out of Starbucks Via. I'll have to ask a friend to pick some up for me. Otherwise I'm stuck with hospital coffee.

Hello! I hope you emoticon !!!!!

I look forward to being co-team leader with you!

I have to really budget my money lately, so I am having to drink cheap Dollar General dark roast coffee. I am so used to drinking Arbuckle's chocolate raspberry. On Monday, I get to go to Dollar Tree, so I will get some $1.00 bags of French Vanilla and Hazelnut. Better than dark roast, that is for sure!

CHERRIET, thank you for the link! I have never heard of that coffee company. I do not have a credit card though. Around here, I could get a pre-paid card, but you have to put atleast $20.00 on it and $4.99 to activate. UUUUGH

Today, I got so sick of my winter bedding that I put on my spring/summer sheets! Big and bright pink flowers! I am sooooo sick of winter. Although, God has been good with barely any snow around here. One would barely guess it is February.

Well, I look forward to fellowship with this team! Be good!

I'm stuck in the hospital long term, and the food and coffee are AWFUL. Most days I'm lucky if the coffee is actually hot and not lukewarm. A friend gave me a box of Starbucks Via instant coffee. I would have sworn I'd never drink instant, but it's actually GOOD!

Well... Last night did not go as planned...

I had wanted to do reviews, read Eat To Trim again and make some make-ahead salads. I got really sleepy. So, I thought I would take a little siesta. I just laid there. But could not sleep. So, then anxiety kicked in. So, I started to review and just got frustrated. So, I did 10 minutes of a Joyce Vedral walking DVD. I got frustrated. Got on my laptop. I got frustrated. Why I was so frustrated is beyond me. I wanted to make some make-ahead salads but the jars needed cleaned and cleaning jars in the middle of the night seemed a bit insane. LOL

Then, I have 3 ice cube trays in the freezer for my iced coffee. This morning I went to make iced coffee and a person used 2 of the trays and did not refill the ice cube trays... Of course, neither housemate will confess.

A friend is taking me to the post office today to mail my mother a care package. I cannot wait! It is a very very healthy care package.

I cannot seem to get past this plateau. I STILL weigh 160 pounds. The scale just will not budge.

I wanted to take on a pro-life team, but got afraid. In the past, I was punished by people for being active in the pro-life movement. I do not want to step on the wrong toes again. I will just keep my beliefs to myself.

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

I've been hospitalized for almost five months now. The coffee here can best be described as lukewarm dishwater. Luckily I have friends who bring me the occasional Starbucks!

For the crockpot:

I have thrown in some wedges of red potatoes (about 2 pounds), onion, oregano, salt, pepper and butter. Leave on HIGH 4 hours. Serve on a platter with sprinkled Parmesan.

Easy, cheap & nutritious!

I am very excited about a team I have become team leader of called: Move It Any Way You Can. Instead of belonging to one team for each activity one does, this team includes any and all activity together.

Once again I had my Caffeine Nap. I had some chocolate flavored coffee, then took my nap. The caffeine had time to kick in, and I woke up all there.

I wish I could drink chocolate raspberry coffee EVERY day but it costs $4.99 a bag. 5 a bag x 7 days in a week =35 That's $35.00 a week in coffee that I don't have. I don't use up an entire bag each day, but you know what I mean. emoticon

Have any of you bought chocolate raspberry coffee before? It is delicious and my favorite. A little splurge or treat for doing hard work. Anything else I buy is either on sale, on clearance or bought with a coupon most of the time.

Hello! I am replying to tell you about a new Sparkteam I have started called Chores R Us!!!!! I am excited about it as chores really do give you a workout, whether it be cardio, strength training, etc.

I only have one member so far and she is great! We are getting onto all of our teams asking everyone to join.

Do you ever feel unappreciated for all of your hard work? Want some fellowship to go along with the fitness? Then join!!!!!

Can't wait! Thank you!

If you had to go to a grocery store and buy a common name-brand coffee, which common name-brand coffee would you buy? I would love to know for when grocery money is tight.

Hey gang, I need some advice please. I'm going through my clothes and getting rid of (donating) things I no longer wear. I've come across quite a few items that are currently to small for me. Once I reach my goal weight I will fit them. Should I hold on to them for when I do or get rid of them and go shopping. I don't have much space in my small apartment and have less money to go shopping. I've read articles that say you should get rid of smaller stuff cuz it can be frustrating and be counterproductive to reaching goals. What say you? Keep or donate? What reasons are you considering?

I believe in you.
Have a Happy Day! HUGS

My coffee maker shuts off after an hour and a half. So every time I take another cup I turn it off and back on again to reset the timer so that the coffee stays hot.

Same here :-) I have a 4 cup coffee maker and when it turns itself off I can not just dump what is left down the drain. So, I end up reheating too.

Normally I have half and half. But sometimes I splurge on creamer, especially Sweet Italian Cream.

When I make it at home I always add almond milk/vanilla as the creamer but if I get it out I splurge on the half & half creamers.

Actually what I really want is a coffee mug like the one on this team page. Coffee is indeed the other endorphin.

So is chocolate, both sweet and used as a savory. (I posted a link to a recipe that uses cocoa powder in a beef stew on the Chocolate Team).

I haven't made cappuccino yet. For that matter, I'm scrambling around, my day all chopped up, and by the time I have a bit of time for espresso, it's later in the afternoon and I don't want caffeine to interfere with sleep, which is very important and necessary what with the stress I'm under.

I did have some nice fatty milk and was wanting to do cappuccino, but I didn't have the chance. I love fatty milk, but I have to lose weight, too...

Now I'm interested! What is a flat white? And what is a short black?

Oh, I love these fussy little routines! I like Absinthe, and much of the liking is due to the ritual of the proper glass, the spoon, the sugar cube.

Long ago I used to smoke. I had this thing about cigars - Marsh Wheeling Stogies, and I had a cigar cutter and a little brass matchbox, and I was into the ritual of cutting the cigar and opening the nifty matchbox. I stopped smoking in 1982, but I still have the pretty matchbox, and somewhere in this house I still have the cigar cutters.

Hi there, Skinny milk is better for a cold coffee, just like milkshakes etc
If you're wanting the milk to expand and then froth up for a cappuccino, flat white or latte etc, you'll want it to have a bit of fat in it, as the solids are what will expand and hold together when you get the air in there.. Give it a bang on the bench (counter top) to get the bigger bubbles out as you don't want them in your foam, then give it a swirl around in the jug (called a serve) several times til it's really glossy...

I love making flat whites, and am getting better at short blacks with double and triple shots!..

emoticon Hope this helps

ps - I'm from New Zealand, where we invented Flat whites! Nomnomnom yummmm!! lol

I've never tried, but I don't see why not.

I agree, half and half is better any day.

But I don't use it all that much, and that powdered junk can sit on the shelf and keep.

Can we use half and half to make cappuchino?

Given the chemicals that are in powdered creamer, I suspect half and half would be healthier. And it would taste better.

Well! Finally! I had a chance to fire up the fancy-dancy espresso machine today. Actually I'm not big on black coffee. In the old days I used to put cream in espresso. Maybe that's a no-no, but I'm just not all that sold on black coffee. Today I put some powdered creamer in it.

The machine does have that steam thingummy that makes cappuchino. What kind of milk? Different milk froths differently. Frankly, I like cream. Never did like skim milk, nasty stuff. (My daughter prefers skim milk, thinks whole milk is nasty, whatcha gonna do?)

I think I should try some 2% milk with the steam device and see how 2% milk cappuchino tastes.

A little too hot here for walking. Besides, I was stuck in the cube farm all day.
