Happy Father's Day!

I am missing the men from my family today. They have always told me that they think I am pretty even when I felt like sh*t.

Hello! I need your opinion!

There are many free on-line courses from many respectable universities. I would love to further my education and for free? Heck yeah.

This is where you come in... What classes should I take? Should I work on a Master's?

If not a Master's, then atleast on something.

Kindly do not tell me computers. I would be bored out of my mind.

I just do not know.

I have studied Political Science. I have studied Fitness and Nutrition.

With Political Science, I just do not think I want to get mixed up in politics anymore.

With Fitness and Nutrition, there really are not many jobs in this area near me.

I would appreciate any advice.

Thank you!

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.

Off-topic but...

My heart was set on buying sparkling water yesterday at the grocery store. However, way too expensive. 8 cans for $4.99? They must be out of their mind.

So, down in spirit, I trudged through the soda aisle, not wanting soda.

I came across 3 12-packs of Fresca sparkling soda. I had not had Fresca in a few years. So, for 3 12-packs, on sale, was $11.00 and tax.

Although not what I wanted, still a treat. A rather crisp taste, yet not sickening sweet.

How about you? Anything good at the grocery store?

I hope all of you have a blessed day! I have not been on Sparkpeople for a good while. With the holidays coming up, I am attempting to do as much work as possible.

However, I need Sparkpeople and all of my Sparkfriends. Right? Don't we all?

The sun has finally appeared in the sky!

I bought a Bella coffeemaker! My new toy. A Bella is a generic Keurig. Same thing but without the Keurig name.

Spark on!

How are you? I hope good!

The weather is storming out. While having dinner, the light kept flickering. I want to be on Sparkpeople, so pray with me that the electric does not go out!

I made crockpot French toast for dinner with a side of pineapple. Too sweet. I have never allowed myself much sugar in life. Even as a child, I thought of sugar as a sin. So, now I know better.

Another too sweet thing is Brisk lemon iced tea. The Brisk has been on sale the past two weeks, so I bought some as a treat. I have learned my lesson. I have been drinking ice water now. I am on The Water Challenge Sparkteam after all! So, I am going to sell the Brisk to my roommates as they are used to drinking sugar. I will be drinking ice water and iced coffee and be happy!

Those are my 2 cents for today!

Do you believe in Botox for your face? I just do not see the point. If you know how to make yourself look nice with make-up, why go through the agony and money? Anyone?

For me today, it is going to be a foundation and lipstick kind of day, as opposed to wearing bronzer also. I have noticed how much younger I look without bronzer. Why ruin a good thing? Although, I do look prettier with more of the dramatic look while using eyeliner, mascara, eyebrow pencil and blush. Just too high maintenance for a hot summer day with no air conditioning.

How is your day going?

I used some generic Noxema tonight. Tomorrow I am going to wear bronzer and lipstick. Doing so is low maintenance yet evens out the skin tone as I have pigment here and there. Also, looks better in this hot weather. Mascara and eye liner are not running everywhere.

How about you?

Hello all of you wonderful Sparkpeople!

OK...

I am at 156 pounds and holding. Atleast I am not gaining, right? What makes me want to jump up and down? I am not considered an "obese" anymore. "Obesity" to me is like a bad word. You know what I mean, right?

I have meatballs in the crockpot for meatball hoagies for dinner. I am starving! Included is a fruit and vegetable. How about you?

From now on, I know to do Sparkpeople first thing in the morning after the iced coffee ritual. This way my day is going to start off happy instead of stressed when writing articles. Makes sense, right?

A question... I have a ton of small baskets. What type of crafts should I use the baskets for? I know gift baskets, but what type? Any other uses?

Don't forget to stay hydrated!

Also, pray for those who do not or cannot pray for themselves.

Have a blessed Sunday.

Which name-brand mascara is your favorite?

I have a coupon for Wet n Wild make-up. Any good experiences with Wet n Wild mascara?

How are you? Sometimes I miss being an Avon lady. I just do not miss when not having been paid.

In college, a woman tried to recruit me for Mary Kay. I told her no twice.

Do you have any stories?

Hello team!

I had to come off of my diet as was losing weight too rapidly. I did not want to become sick. So, I am returning to the job of "chef" to two housemates and myself. I am happy when I cook, so there you have it. I will put the JoAnna M. Lund recipes to good use! Go JoAnna M. Lund Sparkteam!

Instead of keeping my pedal exerciser at my office desk, I placed it in my living room. No longer in such a small place. Go Stationary Bike Sparkteam!

I submitted an article yesterday to the newspaper I write for on the topic of forgiveness. It was rather hard on me as I have some people in my life I am having a struggle with forgiving. So, I did not preach (as I would have been an hippocrite) but basically said if you forgive you are giving your own self a gift.

While organizing my office yesterday, I found book after book that I bought and never read yet. Some fitness, religious, cookbooks...even a new English bible... My Catholic bible has worn out pages, my Joyce Meyer bible I do not understand. So, I picked up an English bible at a thrift store and will start reading. I understand Psalms and Proverbs, but the rest of the bible is so hard for me. Anyone else have difficulty? Go Christian Living Sparkteam!

Today is guess what? Coupon day! I got a tip in an e-mail that there should be three inserts today! I do not have a newspaper subscription but I have friends who save their coupon inserts for me. Hey, one person's trash is another person's treasure! Go Nifty & Thrifty Sparkteam!

Well, I am a plain as ever girl today. Perhaps if I had a man in my life I would fix myself up. I usually will not leave the house without my hair and make-up done. People still criticize my application. I like lots of make-up and big hair. However, when you are around two girls almost twenty-four hours a day, why bother? Go my beauty and singles Sparkteams! Give me a good kick in the petunia!

I now have a baby crockpot bought by a friend at a yard sale! Woo Hoo! I just have not figured out what to make in it yet...any recipes? I figure it would be good for dips. Go crockpot team!

Well, I will sign off for now... Go Steelers!

Hello team! As I was on vacation to my hometown, I only had Wi-Fi once or twice. So, I am STILL attempting to STILL get caught up on work, Sparkpeople, chores and activity.

As I am a leader of the JoAnna M. Lund Sparkteam, while over the vacation, I reviewed alot of her cookbooks that I had loaned from the library. A quite interesting lady.

On the other hand, I have started a new diet that I found while reviewing a Woman's World magazine over vacation. There is not even a name for the diet. However it is easy and doable...Cheerios w/ 1% milk for breakfast, a frozen entree for lunch and dinner then it called for Laughing Cow cheese for snack but it is too expensive for me so I substitute yogurt. I even had coupons for the Cheerios and yogurt! I am wanting to lose 10 pounds by atleast Christmas.

So, as you can tell, I spent alot of vacation reading on fitness and nutrition.

I hope you are having a good middle-of-the-week! If you have anything you want to talk about, tell all of us.

Remember, get in those 10 minutes of acitivity!

Hello everybody! How are you? I hope well! What are you up to this Sunday?

Well, as for myself, I am excited about dinner... sweet and sour meatballs in the crockpot...

I am so mad at myself for not wearing make-up. Because of the criticism from people when I DO wear make-up, I have become accustomed to NOT wearing it.

I went yard saleing yesterday and got some REAL bargains! Tons of books... cookbooks, fitness books and religious books...

I need to start weighing myself daily... I just hate what the scale says...



I hope you have a wonderful Sunday... Be good!

Today, I did research for work then went wild with Pine Sol in the kitchen...Just because you are poor you do not have to be dirty.

I am so tired of living below poverty level. Do any of you have this problem?

Well, my weekend has begun. Going yard saleing tomorrow so I will hopefully find some nifty items for gift baskets to sell. Comes in handy.

Be good!

Hey team... Right now, I am looking like a wet rat, as I just took a shower. LOL

I have the crockpot fired up with potato wedges and onion then will prepare a big garden salad to go with it for dinner... I am using up produce before it goes bad...

I cannot wait to see my momma tomorrow. She is making the trek here to spend some quality moments with me... I hate living so far away from her...

Wish me luck on my job today...

I am addicted to my Sparkteams! You members rock!

Well, I want to curl up in a ball and take a siesta but I need to check on the teams then work...

Be good, get in those 10 minutes and spread your spark!

Just thought I would "play" for a minute with you...
For dinner today, I am being simple... Sloppy joes with baked potatoes. This is something BOTH housemates like... which is nearly impossible to do.

No make-up today and bad hair day.

I will have to weigh myself today... If those pounds have creeped on I will not be happy...

I have research, writing, editing and publishing to do today... I am tired because what I need to research just is not out there.

How has your week been? I love that it is the weekend but not that the month of August is half way over... I would love to move to a warm climate for the winter but do not want to leave family and friends...

Well, get in those 10 minutes, spread your Spark and be contagious with fitness and nutrition!!!!!

I have returned to the team! Yea!

How are all of you? How has your make-up been? I really need you to cheer me on in this venture... I have not been wearing make-up for a good good while and am sick of people telling me what I should look like! They usually say, "You look ridiculous" "Take that off", etc. I simply like the dramatic look and feel pretty and confident with it. Do I tell them how THEY should look? No. If you saw me with make-up, you would know how pretty I can look. What is so wrong with that?

I will be whipping out the make-up caboodle from retirement along with accompanying make-up remover in the morning... Watch, I might forget. Would you remind me?

This is what I need. I will finally be confident. I will have to fix my hairdo too. I can hear it now... "Where are YOU going?"

Am I the only girl who goes through this?

I have been going natural lately. When I was younger, make-up was a breeze. Now, I just want it to magically appear on my face! ha

So far I have been talking to myself on this team... emoticon I hope you whip out that make-up this weekend and get rid of the make-up you don't even use...then, clip those Sunday newspaper coupons and go on a make-up shopping trip. My coupon binder has Cover Girl, Rimmel and Maybelline. I am hoping my local store will have some of them on clearance than on will stack on a coupon to them. You don't have to spend a fortune to look like a fortune!
