Hello all! Christine I am so sorry to hear about work Just hang in there we are here for you when you need us! /well my Saturday got blown! I was looking so forward to roller skating but instead fate dropped a bomb and my fiances oldest daughter calls at last minute friday to say hey I'm getting married tomorrow can you make it?? Well that is a 4 hr drive so got up at 8am drove 4 hrs shopped for a dress (very depressing) and went to wedding at 6pm then drove back home after ceremony! Whew what a day. Didn't get exercise in either but made up for it today did boot camp 4&5. Weigh in today is better lost 2lbs. However will not get excited until I see 10lbs lost. So hope everyone has a great week will check in later.

Got to keep moving forward! When you find yourself moving backward stop, reflect a moment then take a step forward again!

Oh, Christine - what a situation to be in. I agree with Serene. IF it happens, talk with your supervisor. But until then, try NOT to stress about something that MAY NOT HAPPEN!!! HUGS!!

Christine, I'm in that situation at work, and I had to say, "I'd be happy to do that, but there aren't enough hours in the day, so we need to sit down and figure out what I can deprioritize." My boss really respected and worked with me on that.

As if things weren't stressful enough for me right now....

We had another person get let go from our office yesterday. She was part time (3 days a week). I am really worried (downright petrified) that her workload will get transferred to me.

When she got hired last year, she took over some of the items I did - letting me take on more work from other areas. So now I'm just praying that they will hire someone else or outsource her work to another firm/consultant instead of just rolling it all back my way.

Hello FSC,

I will continue to be MIA for a short while. I was having so much fun and doing so well with Boot Camp that fate said it was time to dump a bunch of crap on Christine. Daily check in's are just not possible for me right now. I am still sticking to my program, more fruits and veggies and adding strength training 3 times a week.

I will check in when I can and keep you updated.

Good Tuesday morning! Glad to see everyone is doing well! I have started out this week with a cardio 10 minute workout both Monday and Tuesday did a 15 minute strength training session too! Feeling good just hope the scale shows the progress Sunday. Anyway I have a co-worker that has talked me into going roller skating this Saturday I haven't been on skates in over 30 yrs! But it sounds like fun. Have a great day everyone!

Never give up.....sometimes certain challenges just don't hit you or you're in a funk. But you can get on the threads and talk to people that can help get you motivated, so stay in touch! Sometimes we just need a little Spark!

A few of us who are really active on this team have stepped down from this particular challenge, but we're planning to do the next one. Maybe you can do that! I've only been here three months, but it seems to me this team has the best challenges, and they're all different, so maybe just hang out here for a couple weeks until a new challenge starts that's more of a Spark to you? Just a thought. Also, the SP challenges board might have something that turns you on. I'm going to be doing the Lose or Maintain Spring challenge; the winter version was a ton of fun and I came in third! It's friendly and competitive. It's not too late to sign up, and it's at www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/m

Alright ladies - confession time. :(

I signed up for this team a week or so ago - and really love the actual ACTIVITY that I have seen. But I have been bitten by the lazy bug - and am NOT motivated to participate. I want this SO bad - but am getting stagnant.

I am aware of the problem however - and am trying to decide if I should leave the team, make my own or belly up to the bar and get involved.

SIGH.

I DON'T WANT THIS LIFE ANYMORE!

It is a strange winter here in Utah. We have had almost no snow! It's been cold but sunny most days. They say we're finally going to get about 3 storms this next week. I hate driving in snow. It's one of the reasons I work from home.

Have had a hard last few days with a sinus infection. It seems to be getting better so hopefully next week I can get moving some more. emoticon

Brr... I don't miss Ohio's snow and ice at all. I spent too many years trying to keep from going anywhere four months a year, for fear of sliding off a mountain, or into someone's yard or car or something. Hope all of you that must drive are staying safe. I hear it's bad in several places.
It was 76 here, today, and I'm thinking of planting my snow peas a bit early, this year.I probably should wait until things bud a bit, though, I suppose. Still, I do have a philodendron that hasn't even had to come in, this winter, and he's fine.

We got about 2 to 3 inches yesterday. Today we got some rain that melted the ice off the cars - but now it's supposed to get really cold. Let's hope the keep up with the roads!

Lots of emoticon to be had in Maine....self assembly required. Thankfully the storm that missed Fran and got me stayed far enough out to sea that it was a mostly snow event rather than the snow, freezing rain, rain they had predicted. Talk today of freezing rain & rain though. One or the other please.

You hoo!! Guido emoticon I've got a kink in my neck that could use some help.

we're suppose to get snow and ice tonight.

There's a wintery wind blowing tonight and it definitely sounds cold. Our temperature was to drop 30 degrees from 50 this afternoon.

Tomorrow is suppose to be rather slick going into work.

Afternoon Everyone! We lucked out! A winter storm warning was posted for today. We did get some snow, then rain, so the roads are a bit messy, but okay! Now for the weekend, COLD! 29 degrees for the day Brrrrrrr! Not my favorite! So, I'll just have to turn on some tunes, and DANCE and create some much needed WARMTH!

Hi all! Well I did a bad thing this morning! I weighed myself on the wii fit and I gained my 2.2.lbs back. So I am not so happy right now. But I did do yoga strength training for 16 minutes. So I am not going to count my weight change from today. I hope you all are having a better day!

Hi, Joy! Glad to see you back!

My mom got home last night. We're all glad she is home. There is nothing wrong with her heart - I think her main problem was probably anxiety. But no difinitive diagnosis.

Thanks for the good wishes!!!

Now, Guido, where are you??? I need a backrub!!!

Hey everyone! Just wanted to say hi and am gonna try this once again lol I've been AOWL since 2009, though I do come on now and then for a recipe here and there. Lots of changes-most good, some not so good, but then that's life, gotta have alittle bad to appreciate the good :) I've gained some of my weight back, but not all.. Still under 300 (barely lol), so thats good. Decided to come back, remake my changes, make more changes, but gonna do it slowly this time, so right now, i'm getting my feet wet, and seeing where it takes me, as long as I don't drown! lol

So I managed to make it to the gym for the first time in months today. Hurray!.... Kicked my butt but i'm happy about it! They have this new free 12 week program at the YMCA with a "coach" so I signed up for that.... my first meeting is on Monday. Its great because i have a girl at work who is helping me.... and not letting me have any excuses not to go to the gym..... she comes and stands at my desk till i agree! lol. Its perfect!

I'm super sleepy now though.... off to the grocery store for some food for the house, then dinner, and then catch up on some tv shows while I craft. The DH (well my boyfriend) took the dog to work tonight so it will be just me and the cats..... not sure how i'm gonna like the house being so quiet until they get home. Oh well!

Greetings from the frozen midwest! Very long travel day. Just realized I've been in the same clothes for over 40 hours. Left Hawaii at 81 degrees. It is now a whopping 19 degrees here. Left green hillsides and blue oceans for the brown grass and bare trees. Remind me again why I live here???

Trip was fab and had a wonderful time. Glad to be home and now have a lot of catching up to do. Classes start tomorrow and back to work on Wednesday. I'm hoping to be back in the swing by Tuesday. Didn't sleep on the plane, so I've been napping a lot since I got home. Need to change my sleeping habits back to central time.

Looks like we are off to a great start for 2012 and I'm seeing a lot of new faces on the boards. WELCOME! I hope to chat with you all soon!

Serene, I had never heard of that software before - it looks awesome! Now I just need to save some $$$ and give it a try (my typing skills are so bad).

Sunday is cleaning day so I'm off to grab the scrub brush and get to work - I'm reserving Sven for when I'm done.
