Took a day off from walking today. We usually do on Sundays anyway.

Hope your calories have stayed in check, hope, hope, weekends are usually up for calories for me.... :(

That's a good sale! We had roast beast, potatoes and carrots.

I did pretty good today. Two more days to go!

Yeah it looks like it would take some time. We are doing chicken legs tonight because they are on sale at Albertson for 88 cents a pound. :)

Good job staying in calorie range... you can do it for the weekend!

I am going to walk today!

I have, but I haven't looked at her site. She seems like she has a LOT more time on her hands than I do. Let me know how the Italian Meatball Soup turns out. That sounds really good!

I'm in calorie range for teh fourth day in a row. Now, to stay that way on the weekend!

Have you ever heard of the Pioneer Woman? Don found a great Italian Meatball Soup on there that we are going to try, I have a handy little gadget that makes great meatballs, so I do those.

Wow this thread is really making me see that I am not making time for my fitness goals. I need to get my act together. I didn't even walk today!

The slow cooker is DH best friend a lot of the time! Great for fall too!

I am frantically trying to finish my projects. I am also trying to commit myself to getting on the elliptical everyday for at least 10 minutes. That thing is a killer.

Nope, I walked but never did get on the elliptical. I am trying very hard to wrap up some of my projects. Only one more coat of oil on the hall tree to go. :) I found the dated memo from my mom as to when she refinished it for the first time. Well that was 30 years ago.

I have to get on the elliptical today! I didn't yesterday because I had too many chores to do and then I got worn out.

Good job on the high-calorie drinks, less def counts!!

Sounds like it was a great trip!

I've done better on the high-calorie drinks. I haven't sworn them off completely because they are tasty. But, I am reducing the quantity!

We just got back and we totally lucked out on the weather up there. Four beautiful days at the lake. I think yesterday got up to 77 degrees. Sunny everyday too! Today when we went to leave the wind had shifted and there was smoke in the air for the first time.

Not sure I am ready for the cooler weather either. :(

I will be getting on the elliptical starting again tomorrow. Hoping for 10 minutes! Are you still staying away from the high calorie drinks? Doc gave Hunk the okay for some wine but I should stay away from it too. So many calories!!!

It seems like I do that daily too! And the same thing nobody knows about it! Doctors should be putting out the word too - many people really need SP! I know I do! I am doing better already! I want to post something about SP at my local Grocery store. I want to start a walking team near me! So I just hope we can make this happen!

Oh I am sorry to hear that Amy! I hope to get the word out about spark people here in the treasure valley soon.

Have you tried putting up a card with" wanted work out buddy" at the Y where you work out at? Maybe you could spread the word about spark people too. Not very many people even know about it. How did you find out about SP?

I'm working on starting over all over again. I've had a bad migraine spree for most of the past 3 weeks. It seems like all the healthy accomplishments just evaporate when this happens. I try to jump back into workouts as soon as I can because I never know when the next headache will hit or how many days/ weeks I'll be down.
It feels like climbing and falling, I can't control the down days but I can keep starting over all over again. So that's what I'm doing today!
