We went to Disneyland in June and camping in July. School starts back up in two weeks and we were hoping to fit in one more camping trip, but it doesn't look like it will happen.

We are doing a big remodeling this summer, starting 07-23. So we decided on vacation to do interesting day trips. Went to a Shaker village, went to tour a Frank Lloyd Wright house, went on a river boat cruise through locks, spent a day at a resort park and did everything available. We enjoy traveling / driving together. Nice alone time for talking. We used discount cards, had a pass at the resort, packed all our own food. Had fun.

I know I'm a couple days late on this one, but I either go out early in the morning or just before dark so it's cooler. I'd love to go to the gym but it's just too far away!

I work out at an air conditioned YMCA. I think about how nice and cool it is in there. The social interaction also motivates me to go there. After working out I somehow feel a bit cooler for a few hours anyway.

When it's hot like today, how do you motivate yourself to get cardio in?

I tell myself that after I am hot and sweaty, it will feel cooler than I do before I exercise. It helps not having AC at home but having it at the club...

Eh, dr. I guess. Dentist is always an uncomfortable experience. At least at the dr. there isn't usually anything in your mouth preventing you from talking.

I'm really happy and comfortable with both. Same dr. for 35 years. My dentist was a high school classmate, so we go back 45+ years. Both are forward thinking and keep current. I am known to fall asleep in the dentist's chair, even during cleanings.

What I like best about Sparkpeople is being able to easily enter my nutrition info. It's more convenient for me, since I spend a good amount of time on the computer. Also, I like being able to see exactly how many calories, etc. I have consumed, and how many I have remaining. It shows me that the diets I have done in the past, I wasn't paying attention to the right things!

I've been working on a few projects around the house and resting a lot. I'm not supposed to do any ST and can only walk (not strenuous) for another week or two due to the pinched nerve in my back. I'm not much of a sitter so this isn't easy! We are celebrating my MIL 75th bday tomorrow. I hope I can handle 4 hrs. of riding in the car.

For me, it was a baseball game this morning and another one tomorrow afternoon. Got to the club after the game to get cardio in today. Hope to do the same again tomorrow.

I've been here a long time, so I don't have a problem using any part of the site.
I do not use the goal racking as I should like others have said. I wish we could move some stuff around to personalize it for ourselves. My mini goals, I would check off if they were on the nutrition or log in page.

Otherwise, I love all the other stuff here. You do have to make a big effort to realize what works best for you and make those your top things to do on the site. You could spend 6 hours her per day keeping up with it all (or more!).

I find it hard to blog, too. I really tried to share something every day at the beginning, but it didn't seem to really help me lose weight. (and I agree with the others, I don't have anything real earth shattering to share)

I would have to say the other goals because of time involved. It would be nice if my fitness minutes would show up in the goals I track instead of my having to enter the same info 4 times. Often I just do the fitness tracker and not my team goals.

It took a long time for me to figure out the fitness trackers. I'm still not really putting in my strength training to reflect what I actually do because it is just so time intensive. I just keep putting in the same workout that maxes out the points rather than wasting the time to put a truthful workout in.

BLOG....not sure if it's hard to do...I just can't seem to bring myself to do it. I guess I don't feel that I have anything to really put out there for other people to read, besides responses to specific questions, once in awhile. The blogs that I read all seem so interesting, and I guess I just feel I don't have that type of thing to share.

No vacation for me until the fall. We are just staying around the house doing things we haven't been able to during the school year. We are taking weekend trips to visit friends an hour and a half away, but we do this throughout the year. My dog is enjoying it. emoticon

Already done. We chose to stay home this year, as in not travel to a destination. We took day trips with packed picnic type meals, that we could control. Had a great time, counted up and spent less on gas in our travels than we would have spent on overnight accommodations and did not have to board the dogs. That was a major savings. Plus our area has experienced many break ins this year, and we were home parts of every day, shuffled vehicles, mowed, made daily small changes in appearance of house and yard. We love road trips for the physical closeness and opportunities to talk. It was really nice not to have to think about where to eat, and how to manage food choices.
