Hi Chychy, sometimes I struggle with doing exercising... Then I realize just walking, or doing laundry, or even sitting watching tv and doing leg lifts, or holding a can of vegetables and flexing with them is exercise. Don't give up...we've all been there, and even return to that feeling at some point in the week. Have you checked out the exercise of the day box that's to the right of your page....generally they're pretty easy, and don't use many additional items for equipment...

If you'd like I could speak with you on a personal level, drop me a note in my mail and maybe between the two of us we can come up with something that will be more to your liking and maybe even get you a little fired up.

At any rate, you are not alone!!!!

Glad you enjoyed it and that you let yourself indulge, just as long as it only happens once in a while...which I know you'll watch....
Have a great day tomorrow!

You be sure to take some, ya hear. Pamper yourself tonight to a soothing bath, or cuddle up and read a good book.

I'm going to make dinner and sit by our fire until I have to get ready for work.

Have any of you been doing the sparks trivia questions? You find them at the bottom of the list of things you can do for points on your sparkpoints page.

I REALLY SUCK on those questions...guess I better start studying up....I've managed to get my three points but only by the skin of my teeth sometimes.

staying the course is the best way to spark it.

don't look at a tape measure or scale as. look at what you eat know you are eating well that is the bottom line.

Thanks so much. I just feel flat and depressed. I know in my mind it'll come of again, but it does seem a slap in the face when I worked so hard last week and stuck to tracking everything within my calorie range and drunk my 8 glasses of water or more. I won't be giving up though. emoticon

jean do you feel well? did you see accomplishment in the way you managed your food intake. were you pleased with your exercise plan? now you let a scale tell you that you didn't do it right perhaps the scale had a bad day and is feeling mean. just continue with your plans that worked a week ago and the scale will get over it's bad mood and move on the world didn't end. love jean

My answer tomorrow I'm sure will be different...I'll be dragging...and able to sleep, ALTHOUGH it's suppose to be in the 80's tomorrow...
hmmmmm what am I going to do...

See ya tomorrow.

Today's been hard going. I managed an hour in the garden this morning but then it started raining and seems to rain every time I poke my nose out of doors. I meant to clean the house but didn't get round to it. I think I need an early night!

Nancy, I've got Robert in my prayers, and I've placed you there too. You can't worry about things that haven't happened, put your trust in God...he already knows what's going to happen to you and Robert all the way thru your life together. . . and he is a loving God, so whatever the outcome, it will be for the best....maybe not OUR best, but in time you'll understand. You keep the faith lady, and give that man a hug for me.

Love in Christ
Lori

your last sentence said it all worry is useless as we know it shortens life. your are in a good place with living your life one day at a time. as well as knowing nothing changes by eating over it.
that is hard to not do but stay on your food plan and you will be in a healthier place come the time for the actual tests. think positively about the results and you may have better results then you are thinking today. know that my prayers are with you. jean e

Today I am having a hard time not worrying about some tests my husband is going to be having in a couple weeks. Working in the Health Care field is not doing me any good either. I see so many people with difficult diagnoses come across my desk that I can only think of the worst at the moment.

I am praying and trying to keep a positive attitude. No sense worrying over what hasn't happened yet, right?

Today I'm having a hard time, slept til 6p tonight, normally I'm up at 3p and realized I had a tight throat going to my chest. So I Vicksed up and am drinking my tea with honey. Not feeling too bad just tired and can't talk very loud. I'll throw it off...I'm pretty confident.

Today has been hard. I've done a lot of work in the garden - about 5 hours - and I'm pleased with the progress, but just feel down. Not like me. Never mind - as you say Jean - tomorrow is another day. A good night's sleep should banish the blues.

remember when you have a carb you need a protean to go with it. pancakes are my downfall. i usually get french toast if it is offered. with no syrup or butter. some times they put cinnamon on it. that tasts good.

Today I'm having a hard time just getting started. I went to Easter pancake breakfast and Sunrise service and now I feel wiped. Hopefully with the sun shining and the warmer weather I can motivate myself to get moving. Sunday is my day of rest, after church I just more or less work on sparks, relax outside, and get ready for my workweek. It starts at 11 tonight as I work nights and I go to bed for a nap around 4 in the afternoon...sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

today has been hard for me as well. i wrapped myself worn all morning and now it is worm out and i have spent most of the day in bed and forcing myself to be up. i don't know about you but i am effected by the weather. know you can have a goof off day now and then and that's ok. we didn't develop bad eating and exercise habits over night and we will not get rid of them over night. tomorrow will be better. jean

today I had a hard time getting up and having breakfast early. My trainer wants me to get up early and have some breakfast. I usually skip breakfast and have a big lunch. I got up and came on to spark for some early inspiration for the day! good luck team.

hi jamielynn
it looks like your happy face is drinking water.
after you drink your 8 8oz glasses of water you can check sparks recipes. and find any thing food.
just joking about the water. i find it best to sip it through out the day and not all at once.
hope you can find help there.
this way of life is not always fun but the rewards feel so good.
jean get back to me if i can help more.
